Reality check for LU against Jax St. It's easy to see why some on the SBC forums have been beating the drum for Jax St to join. A well coached, very good defense team and a good program. It's a reason there are rated #5.

On the positive for LU, they did not give up 40+ points yielding on 31. Significant improvement on run defense. At least LU did not get an ass kicking like Coastal losing at home 52-10 to Western Illinois.

Actually, according to most on the Sun Belt board, Jax State isn't good enough for the SBC either...

Yeah, they flat out beat us again. From what I could watch from that horrible OVC feed, our defense did a little better, but they're still way too susceptible to the big play. That and the ridiculous amount of penalties points to a lack of mental discipline. That and the play calling on the offensive side was horrendous. Why we abandoned what worked in the 3 previous games and the first quarter, is way beyond me. Throw in the 2 run up the middle plays with 2 timeouts and 1:20 left on the clock at the end of the first half is just way too head-scratchinng. That third down strike Calvert threw to Gandy-Golden as time expired showed that the reins were too tight on him yesterday.

I'm a huge fan of Gill, especially with the type of man he appears to be, whom fits completely in the LU mold. He's obviously, the most accomplished coach we've had at LU, but too many times it seems he doesn't make the right call when it matters. I want him to succeed for us, but sometimes....

Best team won. Sly's post on another site pretty much sums up JSU success.

Well that was the butt kicking I was hesitantly expecting. I don't like that we mixed up the offense when traveling on the road. We should try to stick with what we are familiar with and what has been successful. I was excited to see us ahead at the start of the game but that didn't last long and it went downhill in a hurry. Hopefully our defensive improvements stick and our offense gets clicking again.

RE: Jax St. Game Thread
We already knew they had a good defense, and now looking at some of the numbers, I think this outcome makes sense.

Since they returned most of their defensive starters, including the entire front 7, last year’s stats are pretty indicative. They were ranked 5th in the country in rushing defense (just 89 yards per game allowed). Yet, they were also ranked 2nd in passing efficiency defense in the country. Quite the combination.

Looking at this year, on 49 attempts, they held GA Tech to 4.3 yards per carry (210 total yards). GT had a 65 long, take that away and it was 3 ypc on 48 attempts. GT is ranked #1 in the country in rushing offense in FBS, averaging 393 YPG (JSU is the only non P5 team they’ve played so far).

Now, given the fact that our OL is on the weaker side, and our running game has been mediocre, even against lesser opponents, there’s not much left to work with. To spin it positively, maybe our QB/receiving core is still as good as we hope they are. It’s just that this type of team is so dominate in the area we are at the weakest, and it becomes the link breaking down our entire system. They are ranked 87th in offense and 4th in defense. If they were a little more balanced, say 25th in offense in exchange for some defensive ranking, the dynamic may have been closer to what we were able to do against Baylor.

Defensively, we held them to 24 offensive points, and a little bit less hurry on our QB may have negated that INT, which resulted in a defensive TD. Giving up 24-31 points is pretty reasonable, given how they described our defense as being wet paper.
