I'm not a true fan?


Why do the members on this board get labeled as negatigers or bandwagon fans when they state an opinion based on what is being shown on the field. Just because most of us understand what is going on with our team and our opponents and predict what will happen doesn't mean we don't root for our Tigers. I predicted we would lose Saturday, not because I'm not a fan, it was due to the putrid play of the O-line, lack of WR production and no in game adjustments by our coaching staff. Nonetheless, I was cheering my arse off for my Tigers. If you predict We will win out then cudos to you, but if you are a realist who has accepted the major flaws we have and calls it like you see it, that doesn't make you any less of a fan than anyone else.

We have a few people on here that are actually more Les fans than they are LSU fans.

It is very similar to people who believe that if you are critical of the President then you are not a true American who loves his country.

Its a very base, kneejerk reactionary way of thinking.

Some people are terrified of the truth and don't wan to see it. It all comes down to liking the Head Coach more than the program

re: I'm not a true fan?


The reason is because most of the Nega posts are about how Miles is leading LSU into mediocrity when he has done nothing but keep LSU as a top 5 program in college football.
Also you hear dumbasses say that Mile's offenses have always suck , when in fact when you rank LSU offenses by passing and running TD ONLY, MILES has coached 4/5 of the top offenses in LSU HISTORY.
Not to mention, we are down 8 starters from the spring game, are playing 3 freshman on the oline.
Our fans have become exactly what we hated about Bama fans, ENTITLED. Did y'all think we would never lose again? Y'all sit here and say how strong the SEC is , then get pissed when we lose on the road to a top 10 team.
Les Miles should have earned Tiger fans respect and trust. In 7 years he has won more games than ANY SEC TEAMS, has 3 west titles, 2 SEC titles and 2 BCSCG appearances (winning 1) and you HAVE DUMB frickS ON HERE SAYING," Miles sucks and will lead LSU to shite." Posters that say this , dont deserve a winning program.

There are some serious offensive problems (Same as most years) and expectations have dropped pretty dramatically from preseason.

Well said OP. I am an avid LSU fan and I want us to win as much as anyone. But our offense is abysmal and to point it out does not make you any less of a fan. Does anyone think that if we keep quiet about it, the rest of the college football world will not notice.

Great point. My knock on Les is, IMO, he doesn't pay attention to detail.

Good example of what I was talking about. Miles showed up all over this rant. We are talking about the team and the dude is defending Miles.

It does all start and end with Les, and he has some changes to make down the road, but every football season is the same thing..."you can't point out problems because all Les does is win.."

The offense is dysfunctional, and even true fans can see it.

Any offense that loses three starting Olineman and starting rb is gonna struggle.

Again, I would please like to hear your reaction to this OP:

Agree or disagree? Whether we win or lose doesn't matter.

If you keep trying to do the same things you did with healthy linemen, yes it will.

It appears either our recruiting or development isn't what we thought, the depth isn't there. There are some highly recruited players not producing.

Every team has injuries. Elite teams roll out another capable backup. I suppose we aren't what we thought we were this year.
