It was an absolute mess on the field that night worst field conditions I can remember in Tiger Stadium outside of the monsoon the night The U came and pistol whipped us. JRuss came in and saved us I thought he'd win the job after that. Randall was a tough SOB but I'll never understand why Saban didn't just go with JRuss that ye


To be fair Jruss hadn't become the beast he would become. He had some stinkers in 04 but yeah it was clear that Randall wasnt the answer.

MUST use those early non-conf games to gel the OFF and have DEF get their assignments down.


As long as we don't have gaps in our roster moving forward like 2014, I have faith that Canada will play to our player's strengths.


I never understood why we didn't run some bunch formations for Harris. It was clear he wasn't a full field progression qb. Why not make it easy on him. These type of things happened during Miles entire tenure.
2008 anyone with a brain could see that Lee didnt handle pressure well, did they ever move the pocket for him? No.

It was clear to anyone that JJ has trouble going through reads during his drop. Did they take that out and use more shotgun? Hell no.

It will be refreshing to see a coach form a game plan around the player's strengths rather than trying to force a system or philosophy onto a qb.

Jimbo was the oc as well, but people act like they were god and multiple occasions couldn't figure out who they wanted to play at QB.


On the luck part, a shite load of teams need luck, tOSU was nicknamed the luckeyes.

In 09 Bama needed a tipped fg and then in the national title game the opposing teams starting QB and leader goes down. Bama lucked in on a bad call in 2011.

Well JRuss was Jimbos guy and knowing Russell's habits I'd be willing to bet it was little Nicky who didn't trust him enough.

re: Last year's LSU football team should have finished 10-1 with a playoff berth
So you are saying that the loss to FLA was worse than the loss to Bama on 1/9???? That's just crazy, but coming from the Miles lover you are I can see why..... the Bama game was probably the worst loss in the history of the program..... and losing to a depleted Ile Miss team in 2013 when we were basically a top 5 team was even worse than the Florida loss last year... your Miles love and excuses know no bounds... it's truly sad in fact....

Opening at Lambeau as the #5 ranked team with 18 returning starters, I thought last year would be the best chance to make a run to the playoffs. The defense was good enough to make it,


And this is why Miles got canned. We were loaded and he did absolutely nothing to change the stagnant offense from '15. After promising he would to save his job.

Was a huge wasted opportunity by not letting Miles go after 2015. Not to mention the different hiring options that were available. Such a huge mistake- Alleva and F.King would be fired in any private profession for that circus.

Well let's think about this a minute.... in the 2004 Auburn game , Randall led us on a perfect opening drive. Then Saban put JR in the next series... we ducked on offense the rest of the day.. YES that cost us the game IMO.

I'm not arguing that. All I'm saying is that JRuss was Jimbos guy but knowing his lack of work ethic and other off the field habits it's easy to see why Saban was reluctant to give him the job. Remember 04 was Russell's second season at LSU and considering the talent difference between he and Randall, Russell should've easily passed him up by then. Of course at the time nobody knew about Russell's character issues yet so it was hard to figure out.

Very true and my only guess would be that Jimbo wanted JRuss and was probly pushing for him to play and Saban saw Randall's limitations and was open to it. Remember Randall started most of the 02 season and wasn't very effective. The plan was probly for Russell to takeover in his second year but as we saw was terribly inconsistent and not ready. He'd save us in a game then come out and stink it up the very next week.

Russell really underachieved in 2005 also. In 06 after the Hurricanes his girlfriends family friend moved in with him. It was Fats Domino and he really inspired JRuss to be more professional and prioritize his life correctly. Then we saw the results during that 06 season which happened to be his only great season college or pro and the only season he lived with that strong influence .

I'm saying exactly what the frick I said dumbass.

I'd rather win the sec and lose badly in the national title game than lose at home to a 14 point underdog that was missing tons of defensive starters starters to miss out on the sugar bowl.

Maybe if your reading comprehension skills matched the level of your football ignorance, you could understand.

You're stupid. In what universe is a 21 point loss in a national title game worse than losing to uab? TULANE?

Cool. I was talking about 2011 bama and 2016 florida. Pay attention you drunk boy.

This post had frick all to do with miles and had everything to do with the fact that even a loss on 1/9/12 didnt take away our sec title from that year. Learn to understand what you read.

Only someone that doesnt know shite about lsu history would say a loss in the national title game is the worst in school history. But hey youre just some drunk thats never once stepped foot on campus.

Tulane has beaten us 48-7.
Bama in 2002.

You just further prove you don't know shite about lsu or football in general.
You still havent responded to my link proving Lane Kiffen called audible from the sideline and that bama did look to the sidelines.

Anyone arguing against what you posted is nuts.

And that's not even speaking to the openly hostile feeling between to the two schools after the hurricane mess with LSU, Florida, and the SEC.

Really??? Wow...... face it last years LSU team just wasn't good enough to beat FLA.... it was a regular season game..... they are all important but getting embarrassed in front of the world against the same team you just beat a month earlier was a way bigger loss...... and Ricky is just saying this to get a jab at coach O.... yet he doesn't want to talk about the MILES team in 2013 that was a top 5 team getting beat by a terrible Ole Miss team that was missing s ton of defensive players.... which IMO was an even bigger loss than last years FLA game....

No I don't suffer fools. Calling 1/9/12 the worst loss in lsu history is juat foolish.
You constantly take someone's post and act like it means something only you see.
Just like the JJ debate. I said JJ isnt the worst qb in lsu history and in your brain that means i said JJ was great.

You said Our offense was putrid ALL season in 2015 and I post FACTS that prove they weren't putrid all year and you take that as me saying our offense was great.
You just don't understand football at an elementary level.
You told me an Offense with 5 yards of offense that wins the game is more productive than an offense with 500 yards in a loss.
