Baton Rouge Advocate reporter/columnist talks LSU’s bowl loss on TR Radio
On the heels of LSU’s one-point collapse to Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, Les East of the Baton Rouge Advocate joined Jeff Palermo and Richard Fischer on Tiger Rag Radio Tuesday night.
He was in the Georgia Dome covering the game after spending bowl week in Atlanta covering the Tigers.
Clemson outscored LSU 12-0 in the fourth quarter Monday and outgained the Bayou Bengals 169 yards to one.
“It was a real tough loss, and I’m going to touch on this in my column in tomorrow’s paper (CLICK HERE for Les’ column). This game was so much like the whole [of the season]. There were times where they looked really good and looked like they had the game in hand. Yet as we’ve seen so many times this season they just didn’t have the ability to finish teams off. Sometimes they let teams come back and score late and make things tight and wound up winning. But last night was kinda like the Alabama game where they just let it get away late. It looked like they really had a chance to put the game away, and I just think it was like the Alabama game, it was like the season this year. When they had the chance to do something really special, they let it slip through their fingers, and that’s what happened in the fourth quarter last night.”
Les went on to break the game down in greater detail. He also talked about how LSU stacks up next year and whether this loss will affect the Tigers in their offseason prep for 2013.
