Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here - EP or LP? - Ace Midnight
Okay - getting the obvious out of the way - it was released as and is generally considered an LP. The run time is 21:08 for side 1, and 23:10 for side 2, for a total of 44:08. So, I am not contesting that - from a technical standpoint, it clearly meets the definition of an LP. However, an EP ...

Reminder for those who only casually follow recruiting (stargazing) - Ace Midnight
Except for JUCO players (we have none in this class currently, and don't project any, barring a last minute surprise), these kids haven't played a down of CFB, and many of them never do. Grades, off-the-field issues, failure to adjust to the speed, a decent percentage either never play at all, or c...

No signing day losses - Makes 1/2 all better - and more. - Ace Midnight
Plus the gets, the good flips/mild surprises all make it possible for me to give an A grade to the staff. I won't dwell on the in-state prospects we lost - and difficult to bless off on a A+ with the in-state targets we lost to division rivals - having said that - a truly outstanding job in landi...

Contemplating a Post-Miles era (classic off-season thread) - Ace Midnight
It came up in the recruiting thread that Miles turned 60 in 2013. It is a marker - not necessarily a red flag. I am also taking a positive tone with this thread - for purposes of this discussion I'm assuming that things go well over the next 4 to 6 years. Of course Miles' health appears pretty ...

not anything that kids who go elsewhere do or do not do. 2003 - great example. Remember Nick Child? I barely do. He was the top rated DB in LSU's class. Jonthan Zenon was the lowest. 2010 - Elliot Porter - ranked as a middling, 3-star guard prospect, who did not make any Top 100 or Top 250...

Since WRs seem to be a hot topic, let's talk 2014 WR corps - Ace Midnight
Dural played some, so we must assume the staff is hot on him (6 catches). Leslie also caught a pass, and he will be a senior next year (JUCO). D'quille notwithstanding, Avery Peterson, Diarse and Kevin Spears all look to fill the gap, assuming Landry and Beckham follow their QB to the NFL. ...

Les Miles projections - wins, losses, final season - Ace Midnight
We are at the mid-point of 2013. Assuming LSU has no problems with Furman, and takes 3/5 of the remaining conference games, that is a 9-3 regular season, and a likely mid-tier bowl. With Les' recent history, I can't assume the bowl win, but I spot him that. So, it looks like a 10-win season, an...
