This has nothing to do with strength and conditioning (Posted on 11/10/13 at 9:59 am)
This is all about Bama having elite players over Lsu.. Les has been getting his arse beat in Louisiana by Saban for years in recruiting. This loss will sting the worse, Lsu will lose major recruits again and settle for mid-level players

it's been historically documented that Saban's best recruiting class at LSU came after an 8-5 season. Miles best recruiting class also came after an 8-5 season. The evidence says records don't matter as much to recruits as ability to get playing time and the relationship they have with the coaching staff.
Also, go back and look at the top 10 recruits out of LA over the past 5 years and show me evidence that Miles isn't getting the vast majority of those? The numbers will show Miles is still recruiting very successfully in LA, the problem is that the LA talent a couple years ago wasn't as good as it was in prior years. LSU is fine recruiting in LA, we will never get every good player from the state regardless if we go 14-0 every year or not.

Look back at LSU's recent losses. Sure does seem like they lose a lot of games in the 4th quarter. Seems like conditioning definitely has something to do with them not being able to stop and block other teams.
