There might not have been a pregame row as so many emails and messageboard posts have suggested, but it’s becoming more and more clear that after the BCS title game… there were plenty of postgame grumbles inside the LSU lockerroom. And nothing’s happened in the two weeks since that game to assuage the discontent felt by the Tiger players.
Take for instance what former Tiger tight end DeAngelo Peterson has told The New Orleans Picayune:
“I just think, the offense, we didn’t have a chance to put the ball in our playmakers hands to do something. The gameplan that we ahd, that we were working on in the weeks before the game and everything, I don’t think we used it. So, as for going to ‘Plan B,’ that would have been ‘Plan B,’ — the gameplan that we planned for…
We might call a couple of plays that we worked on, but as fo teh whole gameplan I don’t think we used it. I just think the playmakers on offense, they didn’t really have a chance to make no plays. That’s the big thing that bothers me. I feel like I could have done more to help the team move the ball. Russell Shepard feels the same way. Rueben Randle feels the same way. Our other receivers feel the same way. That’s the main thing, that we didn’t have the opportunity.”
Why LSU decided not to follow its script and pass the ball more the game — perhaps even utilizing little used Jarrett Lee — remains anyone’s guess.
