Do you remember when we beat LSU two years in a row? When we were clearly the better team and able to make a few mistakes and give up some breaks and still win the game?
Houston Nutt and David Lee have a spinning wheel they use to determine who will be the main target each week. This week's lucky winner was Vincent Sanders with 5 targets. He was able to haul in 3 catches for 39 yards and look competent out there - more on that in one second.
After him was Moncrief and Brassell with 3 a piece. Both caught 1 ball for negative 5 yards. At what point, do you think, that Moncrief realized, that reversing field against LSU was a bad idea and that the LSU defense had faster players that anything he saw at Raleigh High or since. To his credit, he did get back to within 5 yards of the LOS, at one point, it could have been a 12 yard loss.
Bolden and Davis had one target each with no catches.
Our most effective weapons were at TE. Mosley had 2 targets and Allen had 1. All targets were caught and Mosley had 14 yards while Allen only had 4.
Back to Sanders - he has quietly put together a nice year as the 4th guy. He only has 10 targets, so this might would go away if he were our #1 option that other teams tried to shut down, but he's got 7 catches for 89 yards. 70% is the highest catch percentage on the team besides Jeff Scott. Our top 3 targets are: Moncrief - 47%, Logan - 49%, Brassell - 60%. With the higher catch percentage, Sanders has the highest yards per target on the team with 8.9.
