LSU's epic bowl-game meltdown was excruciatingly familiar

EDIT / Jeff Duncan - nola.com:


After starting his LSU tenure with four consecutive bowl wins, Miles has now lost three of his past four bowl games.

Ugly, head-scratching bowl performances have now closed out three of the past four LSU seasons. In 2009, they slogged through a lifeless loss to Penn State in the Capital One Bowl. Last year, of course, was the epic no-show against Alabama in the BCS title game. And now this, which, given the late 24-13 lead and the talent on hand, might be the most difficult of all to stomach.


The epic meltdown served as a disspiriting end to one of the most disappointing seasons of the Miles era. By most accounts, this was one of the most talented teams in LSU history. It seemed to have it all: depth; experience; ability. Indeed, one day, we'll scan NFL rosters on Sundays and wonder how such a talented team could have possibly lost three games.


And then we'll look at the mediocre offensive numbers, the unimaginative play-calling and rudimentary system, and we'll understand.

Another Point.  When I look at Mettenburger, I see FEAR.  He just doesn't have IT???

The look in his eyes is OOOOOHHH Shoot.  I want a QB that will fight LBers and kick an offensive lineman that misses a block.  This kid just doesn't seem to have it? 

But I could be wrong.
