One of the most disturbing things about the Ole Miss defense on Saturday didn’t take place at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. It was hundreds of miles to the south down in Gainesville.
That’s where LSU quarterback Joe Burrow looked very, very average (19/34 191 yards passing, 10 carries for 22 yards rushing) in a loss to the Florida Gators.
Burrow had been the SEC’s Offensive Player of the Week after playing Ole Miss just one week prior. Against a real defense he didn’t have much to offer.
My point is simply that the Ole Miss defense is so inadequate that I’m afraid we will see quarterbacks and running backs from the remainder of the SEC schedule also enjoy career games against the Rebels.
