| Tiger Rant|| Reasons to Keep Miles - Salviati on 11/20/15 at 2:28 pm|
It's damn near impossible for a head coach to keep his team on a peak. Valleys are inevitable. Either through changes in assistant coaches or difficulty in recruiting caused by the perception of the lack of immediate playing time, head coaches almost always have to preside over periods of less t...View Topic - Replies (12)

[IMG]http://i58.tinypic.com/357f1ue.png[/IMG] As I repeatedly predicted, Harris is growing into a very good QB. Coach Cameron appears to be earning his pay. Harris's QB Rating is trending up. The trend line for his Comp % is nothing to fret for two reasons. First, he's above 64% for his four ...View Topic - Replies (4)

Why don't Miles Bashers believe their own eyes and ears? I understand that people wondered why Harris didn't play more in 2014. I understand that people wanted an answer.

This is the time of the year when people like to predict a team's season record. Most people just use their guts, or they look at the schedule and count losses. I prefer a more rigorous analysis. I analyzed the nine games that will be "competitive" games and assigned a percentage chance that LSU ...View Topic - Replies (24)

Please get the recruiting sites to properly classify Franks as a Pro Style and Patterson as a Dual Threat. It's not that much work. Rivals already has Patterson as a Dual Threat, ESPN already has Franks as a Pocket Passer, and Scout lists them both as just QB. So really, it's just both of them...
