re: Question about the direction of Tiger football


quote:

the ebb and flow of sports
So I guess we should be happy with a shot in the foot loss to Alabama and a previous blowout to Alabama, just like FSU was supposed to be happy they had the privilege of playing for all the marbles but went "wide to the right" for a couple of years in a row and lost out? I don't think they were happy and I am sure a lot of Tigers are not happy either. I'd like to see more flow than ebb with all this talent, but every year there seems to be some excuse. I'm not asking for #1 and MNC every year. I just don't like it when we do our own selves in, like yesterday. Like 1/9. Get it? It is very realistic to play your hearts out and lose legitimately and blame no one. Can you say honestly that yesterday we lost legitimately and did not shoot ourselves in the foot with that prevent defense after dominating the whole second half on defense and then conceding the Tide's winning TD by changing the D for that last possession? Do you really believe we didn't self-destruct versus Alabama (a mighty good team, true) on 1/9? If we'd lost to them in a mighty struggle, and without bonehead plays and questionable coaching calls, I'd say "ebb and flow" but no, in either case, we didn't.

Therefore, I'll repeat myself...
quote:

So IMO, until this two game loss streak to Alabama is reversed, I'll say "No, the direction of Tiger football is not all up and roses. There are major problems to address if we expect to remain among the present/future elites."

Toe to toe...but still came up short. 2nd in the nation on the rings says everything.


So are we going to become one of those fan bases who stops pulling for their team when they are no longer in contention for conference/national championships?

Dude why don't you give up your Tiger Fan card and go cheer on the PAC 10 or better yet take up water polo! Look up Les Miles stats as an LSU coach knucklhead.

re: Question about the direction of Tiger football


So you are content with always coming up short, and you think that someone who expects the coach to not singlehandedly lose games on a regular basis is a bad fan?

This fanbase doesn't deserve a good team, and they are going to sit back and watch Gomer Miles flush one down the toilet.

My expectations are to go 10-2 from here on out, play in the Cotton or Cap One.


If we win out, Sugar should be stongly in play, no? Cotton Bowl would also be nice for several reasons.

there is a wide spectrum between "happy with a loss" and being a miserable frick...

I'm certainly not happy with the outcome, but I don't consider this a "shoot yourself in the foot" boneheaded choke-job. They called what they thought would win the game, it didn't work. For all of his strengths, Chief goes into protect mode late to decrease the chance of a long play and to cause the other team to have to burn up time with shorter plays. Should we fire him?

I'm sure you've been saying this for years, probably since early 2005. Miles has his faults, and I'm hoping that he fixes the OC situation at the end of the season. But you're exactly the type of fan that the Bammers were talking about when Saban got there...."Just let Saban beat them once or twice and the program will crumble from within"

I don't have to look up his stats, I have watched him in person or on television piss away one, possibly two national championships, knucklehead.

I love where LSU is now and where we are headed. Yeah, I wish we would open it up a bit more on offense but we're winning more games than most other programs so I'll take it. Also, even with my complaining, I'm pretty sure the coaches see more in practice and know what they can do with what we have.

I DO NOT want to be an Oregon and allow teams to put up 50+ in a game. That won't work against us or Bama style teams.

That being said, hopefully we will hire a true OC before 2013.

Then you clearly don't know why you're unhappy at the loss.
quote:

Exactly my point. It was a "play to not lose" strategy that flew in the face of what LSU had been doing all half to keep Bama stifled (and blew up in the face of Chief when they marched down the field and scored anyway).
quote:

Don't be a ridiculous hysteric.

What are you, an amateur psychic. Hint: don't give up your day job.
quote:

I'm glad you're "hoping" because I'm sure that if he doesn't remedy this one situation and hire a legitimate OC - and give him the keys to the LSU offense-mobile, LSU's string of greatness is going to rapidly go downhill. And I'm going to venture a guess that you'll be among those jumping off the sunshine-pumping bandwagon first if that trend becomes more evident.
quote:

No, I think it's the type that live in denial of what they can plainly see in real gametime, like you. Personally, I couldn't care less what Bama fans have to say about LSU fans. I want them to hate us because we beat them regularly, and not accidentally.
