Assessing recruiting performance: the ones that got away - nitwit
Excellent class overall. And when you look back, the one's that got away, with ONE notable exception, are understandable: 1. Shea Patterson: unlikely to get / keep with our track record for QB's and his family demands; 2. Ed Oliver: family/ coach and UH got hot. Not a shot. 3. Shy Carter: drama,...

Is the LSU football program at an inflection point? - nitwit
A few weeks ago we seemed to be at the lowest point in years. BUt if 1) Beckwith comes back 2) the recruiting class holds together and 3) Miles is shocked into reforming his ways on offense, something really good may be afoot ...

Perspective: King Alexander is one of the highest paid Univ. Prez's - nitwit
I cannot help but think that Alexander is paid, and well paid , to make decisions. His base salary is $600,000/ yr . This puts F. King in the top 10% of Univ. Presidents. His salary at LSU is TWICE what he was paid in his previous position. King's salary was approved the same day Cam Cameron's ...

Who can LSU football least afford to lose? - nitwit
Nobody is irreplaceable. We would miss a big, well liked personality like Les Miles. But we could replace him with another big talent who might energize the program. The rest of the folks whose heads are being called for: King Alexander, Alleva, Cameron, Steele, BDP, Grimes? LSU football wouldn'...

WHO is handling this in an an unprofessional manner? - nitwit
For that matter, is anyone in complete control of the forces at work here? I doubt it. I accept as very likely the rumor that some big cheese boosters want a change and may have met with coaches to feel out interest. Happens everywhere. The AD doesn't control this. The BOS is also involved as pe...

LSU Football nicknames/ etymology / "Buga" - nitwit
The cheesiest nicknames come from Athletic Dept. media types. Things like "Ruston Rifle", to use an old example. Usually awful. The best are home grown: For example "Booger" McFarland. And "Honey Badger" seemed to develop on this very site. Where does the nickname or term "Buga" come from and ...

Peveto had no room for error when he returned to LSU - nitwit
I'm no fan of the performance of LSU's special teams under Peveto and think he needs to be replaced. However, in fairness, he had two strikes against him, if not more when he came back. Les Miles' loyalty to coaches (and players) well after their performance has gone south is well documented. Pev...

LSU Fans: Please remember who we play this weekend! - nitwit
We are hosts. They are our guests. We play the University of Oklahoma, and, as most of you are well aware, these are NOT people ordinary sensibilities. These are sophisticated, sensitive and urbane observers of the heroic athletic endeavor. There should be no outbursts of spontaneous enthusiasm ...

Brandon Harris v Anthony Jennings - nitwit
Lots of similarities: Jennings was 4 star rated no. 6 dual threat QB. Harris No. 5. Jennings: 6' 2", 205 Harris: 6', 2", 190 Both run the 40 in 4.5. Jennings committed almost a year ago to the day, 6/7/12. Jennings showed a level head, maturity and great work ethic ever since. I get an uncomf...

If LSU is a top 10 FB program, are our fans top 10 fans? - nitwit
We demand excellance of our players and coaches, but are we "good CFB fans"? We get terrific grades for being loud, passionate and having good tailgate food and activites. And drunk. But, increasingly, we leave the stadium early, boo our own coach and QB, and turn on fellow Tiger fans for being Po...

Did Slive hire Vincent to deflect bias criticism? - nitwit
This is not aimed at Herb Vincent, who I understand is capable and a good guy. I suspect he had a nice offer. However, I haven't seen discussion here about whether the current scheduling controversy fostered the SEC to make Herb Assoc. Comm for Communications. The move occurs just before the SEC me...

Why LSU's 2014 recruiting success depends on CamRob - nitwit
LSU will have a great recuiting haul this year. The success of the program, the conference and Miles' abilities dictates year in and out expectations of top 10, if not top 5 finishes. Through luck, La. finds itself with a buttload of top 150 players this year. And a few out of state recruits are d...
