Joe Burrow Has Brutally Honest Assessment Of Vanderbilt Game

first_img Breaking records and dropping 66 points on an SEC opponent would indicate that Burrow played well. And yet, the talented signal-caller thinks it was his worst performance of the year.“I think that was probably the worst game I’ve played so far. I don’t want to say bad game since I still played very well, but I played better in the first three. So, I have some things to correct just like we all do as an offense. Through my first four games I’ve played very well and I’m just going to try and get better every day.”Burrow said the real issue for him last Saturday was that he held the ball for too long.#LSU quarterback Joe Burrow said his record-breaking performance against Vanderbilt was his “worst” game this season. pic.twitter.com/2ThX2N93ba— Brooks Kubena (@BKubena) September 25, 2019Since LSU currently has its bye week, the team has time to add new wrinkles into its offensive scheme.It’s hard to envision Burrow playing even better, but it’d also be foolish to dismiss that possibility.LSU is back in action on Oct. 5 against Utah State.

You’d think that he would be pleased with that performance, but he actually think it’s the “worst game” he’s played this season.The days of LSU relying on its running game are over. With Joe Brady helping out the coaching staff, the offense has relied on its quarterback to lead the charge.Through four games this season, Burrow has completed 80.6 percent of his passes for 1,520 yards and 17 touchdowns. He’s already thrown more touchdown passes in one month than he did all of last season.College football analysts have noticed Burrow’s drastic improvement in his second year at LSU.last_img read more

Côte dIvoire Four UN soldiers wounded in another assault by Gbagbos forces

In today’s attack, an escort patrol unit of the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) came under fire by Mr. Gbagbo’s Special Forces in the Plateau area of Abidjan, the country’s commercial capital, while carrying out a humanitarian mission. Mr. Gbagbo is Côte d’Ivoire’s former president who refuses to step down despite his defeat in a runoff presidential election held last November, when he lost to opposition leader Alassane Ouattara, the country’s internationally-recognized president. The wounded UN peacekeepers are being treated at the mission’s medical clinic in Abidjan. “UNOCI condemns this wave of targeted attacks by Laurent Gbagbo’s Special Forces against UNOCI’s headquarters and patrols and warns that those responsible will not remain unpunished,” the UN mission said in a statement. Yesterday, UNOCI soldiers on patrol were attacked by Mr. Gbagbo’s troops in a suburb of Abidjan, sparking an exchange of gunfire during which five members of the former president’s forces were shot. None of the soldiers of the UN Operation Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) were hurt during yesterday’s fire fight in the Cocody suburb of Abidjan. “UNOCI wishes to remind all concerned that its peacekeepers are operating under Chapter 7 of the United Nations Charter, which authorises the use of force when under attack,” the mission said in a press release. “UNOCI would also like to reiterate that it does not wish to have a confrontation with any of the Ivorian forces,” it added. Troops supporting Mr. Ouattara reportedly appear poised for a final push to oust Mr. Gbagbo. The UN human rights yesterday urged forces loyal to Mr. Ouattara to show restraint after reports suggested they have been committing serious rights violations during their advance towards Abidjan. Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), told a news conference in Geneva of having received “unconfirmed but worrying” reports of human rights violations committed by the pro-Ouattara group known as Forces Républicaines de Côte d’Ivoire (FRCI) during their advance towards Abidjan. “Reports suggest they have engaged in looting and extortion, as well as serious human rights violations such as abductions, arbitrary arrests and ill-treatment of civilians,” he stated. The Invisible Commando group, which has been fighting against the forces loyal to Mr. Gbagbo, is also reported to have continued to commit abuses inside Abidjan, he added. Pro-Gbagbo forces have also continued to commit violations on a daily basis, including the killing of two civilians who were reportedly burnt alive by pro-Gbagbo militiamen in Gagnoa, Mr. Colville noted.Cote 2 April 2011Four soldiers serving with the United Nations peacekeeping force in Côte d’Ivoire were seriously wounded today when they came under attack by forces loyal to Laurent Gbagbo, a day after the UN troops repulsed another assault by the same armed group. read more
