Geno Smith only put 463 yds against LSU because they fell behind so quickly in the game. LSU went into the half up 27-7. He threw the ball 65 times! This should not be the game that you all hang your hat on when supporting Geno.
I understand your point and it has some merit, but also keep in mind that it's not like LSU had pulled their starters and Geno put up those numbers on the #2 defense. It was a bowl game...college football's Superbowl and very few of those yards were gimme yards. They also had to throw the ball because they couldn't run the ball, not totally because they were behind although that was a factor of course.
