NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - The Saints are looking to bounce back from a baffling loss while South Louisiana’s college football teams are red hot and the high school playoffs are getting underway. Overtime #103 goes in depth on all of the football action on deck for the middle of November.
Sean Fazende on the aftermath of the Saints’ upset at the hands of the Falcons:
“If they handle this the right way, we’ll look back and say the Atlanta game was exactly what they needed at the right time. The good news is that Seattle helped you out with San Francisco. I know that Green Bay is 7-2 right now. That’s further down the road but you’re still within striking distance of everything and you control what you can control because you play San Francisco at home in a couple of weeks."
Juan Kincaid on LSU’s 9-0 start:
“I think they’ve handled being in uncharted territory as well as you could have asked for. Their defense hasn’t been great but it hasn’t been bad and what has been different ofr the defense this year is that they haven’t had to be great. To me, I think they’ve taken a step back and said ‘we don’t have to be world beaters on this side of the ball because our offense is still going to give us 35-40 points every game and if they don’t then we come up be big when we need to be.’”
Chris Hagan on the Tigers not overlooking Ole Miss:
“Look how fast things turned at Mississippi State. They had LSU looking a little confused offensively but when it hit, it hit. Now LSU was benefiting from a blown coverage that allowed that long Racey McMath touchdown but man, when LSU gets rolling, they get rolling. On back-to-back possessions, they will bomb you and it can take three plays, it can take two plays, in the case of Vanderbilt, sometimes it took one play. They’re going to put that ball in the air and score on you and I just don’t see Ole Miss keeping pace.”
Garland Gillen on the seven Catholic League schools inevitably playing rematches of their regular season games as they advance in Division One’s 12-team playoff bracket:
“I hate the select and non-select system. Especially in Division One. This is straight garbage that all of these teams are playing each other again. They’ve got byes. They’re going to vote again in January about possible changes. This makes me sick looking at that bracket with all those byes and then playing each other again.”
