re: Looks like Ole Miss is the new flavor of the month....


Thanks to all you Tigers that posted in response to my question. Sorry if it came off as a flame because that was not the intention.

I was just a little intense because I saw so many posts that thought OM just couldn't do it because ... well they are OM.

I equate that retardation of thought to people who say you can't do something because i.e. you're black or you're a girl. Outright statements such as these come from pure ignorance.

quote:

I agree with you, never say never, but the comparison to LSU is not a good one and no its not because I'm an LSU fan.


Yeah what I meant with that was y'all had down years and y'all came back from that because you found the right coach.

quote:

As others have mentioned, La is a larger state, that produces more SEC and NFL caliber plaeyrs, plus LSU does not have another SEC team in the state or even a mid major with some history like USM.


Absolutely one reason you will always have the edge to OM I can't argue this at all and won't

quote:

so while I agree OM could certainly put together a better program and even make a run like USCe, I'm not sure they have the resources to be a consitent contender at a high level. Maybe like a Texas Tech type program, usually 7-8 wins, put together a special team every so often.


I certainly don't think we can become a Bama/LSU but I don't think its as absurd as some would come to believe that we couldn't become a USCe of the west and kick Awbarn or tFlagship out of that third/fourth positition with at least a shot to compete with the likes of You & Bama.

TIA for responses just wanted to discuss these points with y'all since I noticed you were already talking about some of these things amongst yourselves

Although, purely on a per capita basis, this is true of Louisiana over all states (but Mississippi is right there with us in second place).

This is far more of our advantage that the first factor. Not having to compete with programs of the caliber of Mississippi State and USM for recruits is LSU's big advantage, at least in the 40 years since Tulane's demise. There is no true "mid-major" in Louisiana - Tech and the UL-Whatevers have not taken more than 2 or 3 recruits from LSU in over 100 years. Tulane used to do a little better, especially in New Orleans, but that ship has sailed (thankfully).

I meant in relation to Ms, the overall population of La is larger and we produce more total D1 players, Ms might have the edge per capita, I think it fluxuates. As it is, La is top 10 regardless of size.

.

The 2 go hand in hand, LSU has a larger pool to draw from and no one to compete with. That's why I don't think OM could get to the level as LSU, unlike TAMU, who can. I think the Texas Tech analogy is a good one. They could certainly get to that level and have more winning seasons than not and occasionaly put together a special team that can make noise a la TTU in 2008. They may just do that in 3 years.
