SEC: Week 12

What to watch in the SEC: Week 12 - SEC Blog - ESPN

4. Running back by committee: There’s such a thing as running back by committee, and then there’s what LSU has done this season. The No. 1 Tigers have four running backs, and they’re using them all. What’s more, with Jordan Jefferson stepping into the starting role at quarterback last week and his ability to run the ball, LSU has a fresh set of legs carrying the ball on every possession. In the last two weeks, Michael Ford and Alfred Blue have gotten more of the work, but 240-pound freshman Kenny Hilliard was the star of the Auburn game a few weeks ago. And until his suspension, Spencer Ware was the workhorse. The bottom line is that LSU is averaging 195.1 rushing yards per game and has three different players (Ware, Ford and Blue) with more than 350 yards. Again, they just keep coming at you with fresh legs.

5. Miles can do without the advice: Speaking of LSU’s quarterback situation, LSU coach Les Miles understands and respects that there are all sorts of opinions out there about who should be starting for the Tigers and how Miles should handle his quarterback situation. Jefferson started last week after Lee had started the previous nine games. Miles said he gets that fans and media are going to analyze the whole quarterback dynamic at LSU, but added. “They’re entitled to their opinion, but that opinion has little effect on the decisions that are made within this program.”

What Miles really wanted to say is: "STFU. I'm running this show. If you want to run the offense, get your own damn football team. Now get the hell out of my face!"
