Games That Could Help LSU - Bringing It Home Edition - ffishstik
[b]Beat Florida![/b] - This one is obvious, but a win today puts LSU at 9 wins in the last 10 games, gives them another win against the RPI top 25, exacts a little revenge on a team that swept them earlier in the year and, of course, gives them the SEC Tournament Championship and automatic NCAA bid....

Happier with the D than I was at the game - ffishstik
I was concerned with some of the big plays given up last night and there were time when the UAB blew our guys off of the line... then I watched the replay on CST and realized that they subbed in tons of freshmen and had all of the starters out at times as early as the second quarter! UAB has a ...

Possible scheduling format if the SEC goes to 16 teams - ffishstik
I never really liked the "Pod" approach with the 16 teams, but after LSU has been repeatedly raped by the SEC Office from a scheduling standpoint, I can see where this could balance things out and make things fair. It could also solve the "traditional rival" crap AND get us to a 7 game conference sc...

When Did SI Become a Hatchet Rag? (not rehashing the TM Article) - ffishstik
Ok, so my copy of SI came in today. I haven't really read it much lately since I can get all of the info that I need off of the web, but the subscription was like $48 and came with a free copy of NCAA13, which was $59 at the store, so it made economic sense. Anyway, here are the headlines: En...

Remember 1998? - ffishstik
LSU made it up to #6 in the polls, but we still weren't sure about them. Some said that they were over-rated. They played Idaho in the third game of the season and, although they won 53-20, there question marks. They had handled an over-matched Auburn team on the road, but the Tiger faithful were re...

This series reminds me of the CWS against Texas in 2009 - ffishstik
Game 1: Hot as balls and the Tigers had to pull out some ninth inning heroics to push it to extra innings for the win Game 2: Game schedule screwed up because of rain, but it was still hot. Opposing pitcher shut LSU down and limited them to 1 run. Series evened at 1-1. Left the stadium tired, sun...

Potential for an "All SEC" CWS - ffishstik
The selection committee often rigs the brackets so that the SEC can get no more than 4 teams to Omaha. This year, the potential is actually there for 7 SEC teams to make into the final 8. If you include Mizzou and A&M, then we could have an "All SEC" field this year. Mizzou as a 4 seed seems to be t...

SEC Stands to Gain Some Serious $$$ if Georgia Wins - ffishstik
If Georgia wins, LSU - Bama goes to the NC game and Georgia goes to the Sugar Bowl, the SEC stands to bring in an additional $12 million or so. That's based on the difference between having the top SEC team after LSU-BAMA in the Sugar ($17m payout) vs having them in the Cap One ($4.6m payout), and e...

Ok, again, WHY is Brad Edwards still considered the "BCS Guru"? - ffishstik
He consistently gets it wrong, and he is wrong again. Asked who is the biggest winner, he said Alabama because Oregon has already played their biggest game and didn't pass Alabama.
