Derrius Guice had strong words about Alabama.
After LSU’s 38-10 victory over Arkansas on Saturday, the Tigers running back was confident in his team’s ability to run the ball. And why not? LSU racked up 390 rushing yards, with 252 of those coming from Guice himself as the Tigers improved to 6-3 and 4-2 in the SEC.
Guice was feeling so good that he turned his attention to Alabama for some reason.
As reported by Ross Dellenger of The Advocate, Guice said, “Alabama always stacks 10 people in the box to stop us. They’re scared as well. … We’re also tired of hearing that we can’t run (after) Alabama and that we can’t run after we play them.”

It’s easy to understand Guice’s confidence after LSU ripped Arkansas. Still, Arkansas is no Alabama. He might want to think twice about using the word “scared” when describing the Tide’s defense.
Alabama’s defensive unit is among the strongest in the country, something the Tigers should know all too well. The Crimson Tide held LSU to 33 yards rushing in the their 10-0 victory on Nov. 5 at Tiger Stadium. Guice was limited to 8 yards on two carries.
It’s easier to talk when Alabama is in the rear-view mirror.
