No, I just make comments without watching games.
I never said they played well, just that 42-9 counts as a "blow out."
But, I wonder if you watched the game. LSU dominated that team in the second half. And, the question wasn't whether they should have played better in the first half. They clearly were disinterested and didn't play well, but that had to do with the huge win the week before and nothing to do with Jefferson. And, regardless of if they played a complete game or not, the fact is Jefferson started and they blew the team out which means that the claim that we will never blow out a team when Jefferson starts is false.
As for R-Kansas, they clearly need to play better to beat them, but that has nothing to do with whether Jefferson starts or not. The reason they were not beating W. Kentucky worse in the first half was because the o-line was not opening holes and the defense was letting then maintain possession of the ball and kept it away from the offense. I don't see how Jefferson has any effect on the defense or the run blocking.
