In retrospect was the McNeese game important? - tgerb8
I say yes. Getting to 10 wins is a good (if somewhat empty) accomplishment. And it really would've helped Fournette's case. He might still be in the race with that game. He's only like 30 yards behind Henry as it stands now....

If Les and Richt are fired..... - tgerb8
Why do I get the idea that LSU would be crucified by the media, while Georgia would exhale a sigh of relief? Why would we be villainized? Is winning a national championship bad for 90 percent of coaching careers? Does Richt have a significantly smaller buyout? (then Joe is to blame). Would we th...

Would you be happy with this.. - tgerb8
Going the more fiscally responsible (and perhaps riskier) route, by offering Kirby Smart 3 Million and the head coaching job, Tyson Helton (Western Kentucky OC) 500k for OC (almost 5x his current salary), Promote O to DC (you've got a proven DC at head coach so that transition should be easy and it ...

What was the impact when Saban left? - tgerb8
I wasn't able to easily track down this info, and I was wondering if anyone knew what happened to the recruiting class when Saban left LSU? How many recruits left? Did the ranking fall apart, etc. ...

General recruiting strategy? - tgerb8
I was reading the Philosophy vs. Execution thread over on the rant. It was said that [quote]It comes down to OL and DL recruiting[/quote]which I agree with, keeping in mind Les' philosophy. Does anyone have any idea what our recruiting strategy is? Do we gauge initial interest on the recruit's...

Tom Herman - tgerb8
If this is the wrong board I apologize. I see his name being thrown around as a possible Miles replacement. Does he have connections to LSU/Louisiana or is this more of a "He's a young coach doing well in a less than ideal situation" type reaction? After reading his blurb on Wikipedia I would thin...

Money question - tgerb8
So the football program has had something like a 22 million dollar profit every year, over the past 10 years or so. Is most of that money spent or donated to academics or other athletic departments? Or do we have a 220 million dollar fund sitting somewhere? They could have been planning for a buy...

Xs and Os - tgerb8
Something obviously happened after Western Kentucky and before Alabama. We knew bama was going to be good, but they should not have held Fournette to 31 yards. Give me a break. WE all kind of shrugged it off as the best DL ever in all of football. State's two RBs just averaged 4.9 yards a carry ag...

Coach O! - tgerb8
I know the dude is loved around here, but I just wanted to throw some more appreciation his way. The 21 sacks in 8 games, already surpasses the 19 tallied in all 13 games last year. Replaced both (Veteran/NFL bound) ends and has excelled. CANNOT WAIT to see what he does with the talent we have co...

The best explanation is that they are in our heads. - tgerb8
Errrbody bitchin about scheme and bland offense. 1. Why would we switch up what works when it has worked exceptionally well (even at halftime.. The run game wasn't a big part of being tied-ish.. but no need to change the entire plan). 2. Tennessee and Georgia ran relatively well on Bama. We all th...

How critical is this game to the momentum of our program? - tgerb8
This is what most likely depends on the outcome of this game: *A Heisman award. *The SEC West, The SEC, and a shot at a National Championship. *The #1 recruiting class. All 3 could very likely go to the winner. I think we win. But if we don't it will hurt our program far more than it woul...

Ranking LSU teams since 2003 using stat equation - tgerb8
I was bored yesterday and got into some stat analysis. I found that margin of victory is an extreme indication of a team's results.

Margin of Victory - tgerb8
I did a similar thread on the tiger rant that explained how LSU (since 2002) wins the west 80 percent of the time when it's margin of victory is 14+, and 0 percent of the time when it's MoV is below 14. [b]I found that the first (Power 5) OOC opponent and first 3 SEC opponents determined EVERY ...

Here's an indication of excellent season (stats) - tgerb8
Using Points Scored vs. Points allowed seems to be one of the easiest ways to assess a team. [b]Since 2002 In the 5 years we averaged winning by 15 points or more we've at least PLAYED for a SEC championship 80 percent of the time.[/b] conversely... [b]In the 8 years we averaged winning by...

After watching this game - tgerb8
You've got to think DL and Linebackers would be frothing at the mouth to get an LSU offer. A strong DL would make this particular team unstoppable. It seems like we should be able to offer anyone and they'd jump on it on the spot. i'm sure we'll complete the great haul, but I really hope (especi...

What kind of picture do you think these stats paint? - tgerb8
I was bored and pulled together some scoring stats based on quarter. I kind of expected to see that we scored relatively poorly in the 2nd half (especially the 4th quarter) while our opponents did the opposite. However, it appears, the opposite is true. Over a 5 year period we averaged the most po...

Thoughts on Clapp at center? - tgerb8
I guess I kind of always thought we'd put Pocic there. Regardless, the general consensus seems to be that we'll have a very good offensive line, but a RS Freshman at center worries me. What's the word on him (Clapp)? No one else worried about that position? ...
