Posted by diablo blanco Call me what you want, but these players deserve better than to lose games like the one last night and the NCG on January 9th because of his inept decisions.
quote:I've been hearing about the future of our program going downhill for 8 years now, and it's STILL not heading anywhere outside of a top 5, or even 2 or 3 program in the nation.
The future of our program is in the hands of a coach whose philosophy centers around a Big 10 football mentality
Is this what we want in a coach?
The 2011 and 2012 LSU football teams should have been hailed as two of the greatest teams in modern college football history
quote:You forgot to mention we lost the last two toe to toe meetings with that same team. You also overlooked a mention of coaching decisions as a major factor in both those losses. But if that's ok with you, to lose twice in a row to Alabama, claim a moral (statistical) victory over them like Tulane used to, or make excuses for very poor coaching decisions regularly costing LSU dearly and just rely on the old saw that "he's a great recruiter" (like no one else can recruit?), then you deserve what you get. Just sayin...
We just went toe to toe with the number one team in the country. The direction of the team is fine
Hopefully Mett came into his own last night... this game will give him great confidence the rest of the way. Open it up like last night, we'll be fine.
quote:I don't know if you've noticed, but LSU has dropped in both polls to #9. Not significant, you say? Well where did we start off the preseason? And I know, there were some key injuries and all. But...
We are top five year in year out.
You forgot to mention we lost the last two toe to toe meetings with that same team.
quote:I am looking at football dynasties like Spurrier's UF, Bowden's FSU, the Miami of yore, Bryant's Alabama (now Saban's). LSU began its serious stab at greatness under Saban, and it's continued under Miles to some degree. But the previous two wins, prior to the previous two losses to Alabama are "back in the day" already. What is in the immediate present (1/9/12 and 11/2/12) are what I'm noting. And that's current events. 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."
and won the previous two...are you suggesting that a coach should be able to completely eliminate the inevitable ebb and flow of the sport?

we were for almost all of last year. You expect to be #1 all of the time?
