Listen: Trevor Lawrence, Joe Borough, LSU discussed on The Sports Reporters
"Mike it's a few days old already but it's still worth commenting thing on that Lsu and Clemson You know the battle of the titans turned out to be more one sided than anybody thought it would be. LSU's offensive machine. I just kept rolling. Joe Borough cemented his status in people's minds anyhow Of A number one traffic through. I think he's still throwing touchdowns. Yes I think it was six when we last looked And Trevor Lawrence you know was humanized a guy who had never lost Ieng last time he lost some early year in high school finally lost Dabo. SWINNEY team did not Defend Their Championship. And now I read where virtually every replay on that. Lsu Team has announced for the pros. I mean their top receiver. Top running back their quarterback top lineman. You know they'll probably still come back with a phenomenal team. But did we just witness a one you know once in a lifetime flash in the PAN offensive machine or Lsu here to stay. I I think it was Mitch. It was just a perfect confluence of things. I A kid. Finally getting a chance. They bring in a forget. What Joe Brady's title as he's now moved onto? He's twelve years old. He's already be offensive coordinator the Carolina Panthers everything was set up a defense that was had matured enough wide receivers. It produced one of the greatest college seasons I've ever seen and it produced the single greatest season by a quarterback. I have ever seen in my lifetime by Joe Borough Mitch Forget the sixty whatever the touchdown passes were for the consider what he just did in the in the playoffs Mitch. He he threw twelve touchdown passes in two games with zero interceptions and he was just under a thousand. Think about this a thousand passing yards and we haven't even talked about the way you can't get in the backfield and even sometimes when he gets gets four yards. It's okay because you should've lost eight. I have never seen a finishing kick like this in anybody's career and I've been tweeting about this for a month. Okay I just going GonNa ask you again. Explain to me again. How he couldn't get on the field? I would state. Yeah I mean if there's ever a case for transfers the transfer porter worked the transfer Porter Kinda worked. Isn't it this not not only did it work but you know how many kids are out there right now riding a bench for some team thinking. I'm the next Joe Borough. I just need to find myself a better program. This this will do nothing but increase the number of disgruntled backup quarterback. Ah Sitting on college benches and all thinking I just gotTa get myself someplace else Suffice it to say that that He had I said this the other a day. And I'm going to repeat it of the two guys going in there. You Know Joe Borough had had some hard knocks already. He Lost Games last year. He wasn't a quarterback that he was is this year. Trevor Lawrence came in on this just ridiculous cloud of of accolades and and and and praise and just didn't know what losing was really until until playing you know in the in the Ohio state game really didn't even know what being behind was seriously and a lot of people thought. Well okay you know. Look at how they handled that the handled adversity and it came back and they beat them but again a semi finals not a final and I had said on our program. It scares me when a guy has never lost a game. And you're going in and you're counting on him to to do everything against a really great team and Trevor Lawrence was was unglued. He had a bad game. Mike I mean there were there. were some some really bad throws that he made overthrowing people it was in the teens. How many passes he overthrew You know projecting his passes getting picked He just he just really came apart and I'm sure he's GonNa come back next year. Much the better for it and and and that team will be much better for it but That you know I thought that might happen and it did and hats off to. What in origin is put together there and they did have an amazing year and you know from even from the assistant coach? Who was his coach or coach when he was when he was a kid and and then they found him he had just been let go by an NFL team when they brought him in for one season of air? Everything kind of came together for this one year do they come back in and dominate again in the SEC. I don't know you you know that that's going to be interesting. I I think Nick Saban will have something to say about. I don't think they are. And and and here's the thing. Trevor Lawrence clearly had a sub-standard game. Okay but guess what they were had seventeen to seven in that game and they came back to twenty eight twenty five and I believe had the ball at that point. It doesn't look like a beatdown and does it look like a blow out. It was twenty eight twenty five in the second half. So it's not it's not like they got thrown down a flight of stairs in this game and yeah Lawrence. We'll spend whole off season thinking of. Maybe if I played better I think other than borough the one story line for me and the game is that the LSU deepen its in particularly the past past deepens not only did the corner step up their defense finally had its shining our in its biggest possible moment and and that that that had as as much to do with giving Trevor Lawrence a long night as opposed to nerves overthrows or anything else sometimes. You're not allowed to play well. And that defense they they were there okay and they were writing. Not just the emotion of what borough was doing on offense there in the superdome everything worked out great. Wait for them but again Mitch. Remember the Games during the regular season. Well lets. You couldn't stop anybody. I think I forget how many points Mississippi scored against Lsu okay but but when they had to when the money was on the table or you know to pre-stage Porton on Mitch's Party shot when the money was in ordeal Beckham's that comes hand. See what I did there. Yes well listen team won. The right team won one. Two teams played all good for the college football season and now it all turned into draft talk and."
