In TX, at least where I live, they start practice Monday, actually two-a-days for most smaller schools.
I know someone who lives in LA will let me know about that state, but if anyone knows about states, even outside the South/Southwest/Southeast, it would be nice to know.
Also, do very many o...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Are all of these great prospects okay academically or too early to tell? - rjokerlsu on 7/27/13 at 11:19 pm|
I have not seen much posted about this & I have been wondering. It seems like every year, there are a few recruits that have trouble getting approved by the NCAA Clearing House, so I wanted to know if all these big names LSU is recruiting that could be the best class ever will be academically qualif...
| Soccer Board|| Tips on helping develop aspiring young soccer player - rjokerlsu on 7/21/13 at 7:54 pm|
I have many posts, mostly on LSU sports, but feel the readers of this thread would be more helpful for this. My young nephew shows much potential in soccer. His father played college soccer in another country and obviously has taught and encouraged him. His mother is from Texas, but met his fathe...
| Tiger Rant|| Any news about Rickey Jefferson and does he have a chance to contribute? - rjokerlsu on 7/7/13 at 9:06 pm|
I have not heard much about him and was just wondering if any of you had heard anything. Is anyone hearing what position he will be looked at by the LSU coaching staff for the coming season?
I suppose no news is good news and I hope the unfortunate incident of a few months back is safely behin...
| More Sports Board|| Has anyone else seen 42 yet, your thoughts & question on Larry Doby - rjokerlsu on 4/23/13 at 12:47 am|
I saw it last week and it was very good, with Harrison Ford playing the Branch Rickey role very well.
However, I have wondered over the years, if Larry Doby does not receive enough credit? As many of you know, he was the first black player signed by an American League team just two years after R...
| Tiger Rant|| What are the pros and cons of picking up spring football after spring break? - rjokerlsu on 4/5/13 at 9:40 pm|
Every year, I have wondered if this is a positive, a negative or a big factor one way or another.
Apologies for not asking this earlier in the week, but what are your thoughts on this? Does this hurt good momentum established--does it help or harm conditioning. Is it a good idea to relax for ...
| More Sports Board|| Will Matt Flynn still be with Seattle next season? - rjokerlsu on 1/23/13 at 10:08 pm|
I still think he can start in the NFL--not sure if Wilson isn't more than a one year wonder.
But I've never liked Pete Carroll and I hope Matt is able to get away from there & finally get a decent chance that he deserves. There are some NFL teams looking for QB's and there have been a few storie...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Who will be the early entry recruits and how many are allowed? - rjokerlsu on 1/3/13 at 11:11 am|
I recall Vadal Alexander & Lamar Louis were EE's in January of 2012 and I have seen some references to this in other posts, but wanted to know. Also, won't we know pretty soon since the spring semester starts something like Jan. 14?...
| More Sports Board|| Is Matt Flynn destined to become a career back-up QB in the NFL? - rjokerlsu on 12/1/12 at 10:48 pm|
Although he made a terrible choice to go to Seattle & we know Pete Carroll seems to have little use for former LSU players, it does make you wonder. I am still not convinced Rusell Wilson is definitely a better QB & I doubt the Seahawks' record this season would be any worse if Matt were the starte...
| More Sports Board|| Which is most important--good coaching or talented football players? - rjokerlsu on 9/20/12 at 10:43 am|
I realize the championship teams have lots of both in most cases. But many years ago, I heard the old expression, "A great QB can make a mediocre coach look very good." I wonder if they were referring to Brett Favre in his college days, making Curley Hallman look like a much better coach than he t...
| Tiger Rant|| What true freshmen do you believe will be redshirted this season? - rjokerlsu on 9/3/12 at 6:33 pm|
Obviously, unanticipated injuries at some positions might change things, but the main one for certain right now is probably Dural, because of his injury.
Also, does it look like all the true frosh outside linebackers will see action this season?...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| What is the latest on academic status of incoming recruits of 2012? - rjokerlsu on 7/13/12 at 5:27 pm|
I haven't seen this posted in a while, so with fall practices just a few weeks away, I was wondering. It appears Liggins is probably going JUCO, but what about the other football recruits who signed last February that may not have been approved yet by the NCAA Clearinghouse?...
| Tiger Rant|| What is Zach Mettenberger's 40 time & accurate height & weight? - rjokerlsu on 3/3/12 at 12:19 pm|
I know he has lost some weight, hopefully making him more mobile. I recall Zach was listed as being in the range of 6-5, 250, when he signed with the Tigers in the Class of 2011, but knowing he is a dropback passer, he was never considered that fast. But I was wondering what was his speed in the ...
| Tiger Rant|| Has Les Miles ever coached on or played for a team that finished undefeated? - rjokerlsu on 12/29/11 at 6:50 pm|
Starting from his high school playing days in Ohio, all the way through his coaching days at Michigan, Dallas, Oklahoma State and of course, LSU?...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| What is the latest on Jeremy Liggins? - rjokerlsu on 12/18/11 at 7:30 pm|
The QB from the Oxford, MS area who it seemed LSU was really pursuing until less than a month ago. Now with Keil suddenly emerging as a possible recruit and Alford still considering the Tigers, does it mean that Liggins is likely to wind up somewhere else? I haven't seen that much discussion about...
| More Sports Board|| What are some a good subjects for sports books not examined enough? - rjokerlsu on 11/5/11 at 4:43 pm|
or in today's age of high technology, on-line investigative articles? Two of them come to mind--the first one is officiating--how are officials chosen, scratched, monitored, etc. The second one is an examination of coaches handling the often sensitive subject of determining proper playing time fo...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Will there be a surprise recruit no one is talking about very much? - rjokerlsu on 10/13/11 at 10:58 pm|
that winds up signing with LSU? Seems like there have been some in recent years like Sam Montgomery, J.C. Copeland and even Patrick Peterson, early on a Miami commit that many did not believe LSU had a great chance to recruit until maybe December at the earliest. Also, Daniel Francis and Micah Eug...
| Tiger Rant|| Will we finally see a lot of Collins at LG this week? - rjokerlsu on 9/30/11 at 11:11 am|
I heard it is still day to day on Hebert. Many of you know I haven't exactly been his biggest supporter. I was hoping we'd see a lot of Collins and I have also liked the way Williford has continued to move up the ladder....
