Cartwright's role this year with the baseball team - therick711
Where is he projected (starter, pen guy, swing guy)? Any chance that Dunn can use some more of his crazy pitcher-developing magic to make him 2013 Joseph Bourgeois this year? Right-handed ground ball generator that gets us to the back end guys with a line approaching: 3-2, 32 IP, 2.25 ERA, 32 Ks 1...

Has the new ball reset the equilibrium of college baseball - therick711
So, we're in about year 10 or so of college baseball using actual seasons to test theories about their game. LSU has been on the wrong side of recruiting on these changes. LSU got caught flat-footed by the new bats and turned its team of gap-power hitters into liabilities when the gap-power dried ...

Johnny Jones in Overtime at LSU - therick711
At least over the last two years, every time LSU goes to overtime, they let the opposing team score the first 2-3 buckets in overtime--most of the time very quickly. Two questions: First, any working theories on why we start overtime so slowly? We had seized the momentum last night then immediat...

LSU tops staff pay for the fourth straight year - therick711
[link=(http://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/salaries/football/assistant)]LINK[/link] I had been seeing posts on this site saying "false" after people made the claim that LSU had the highest paid staff in the country this year. It looks like it is true. I also believe that LSU is the only school ...

Why Do We Really Want Dual Threat Quarterbacks? - therick711
We know that Les prefers them. You would think that Les had an interest in running his quarterback. Yet, at the end of this year we basically did not run any designed qb runs. Earlier this year, we ran them infrequently, but at least still ran them. Why are we recruiting dual threat guys if we a...

LSU's Clinching Drive Last Night - therick711
Good, if not sloppy, game aggies. This game was very much like what Alabama did to LSU in 2009. On LSU's final drive, they rushed the ball 11 times for 66 yards (6.0 ypc) on their 80 yard touchdown drive. LSU threw the ball once for 17 yards, but for all practical purposes, that was a run as we...

Good thing we don't play Florida State this year - therick711
Didn't the story go that when Bowden beat us in 1979, he knew he could build a winner at FSU and decided to stay, rather than take the LSU job? Let's hope we don't draw them in a bowl game or something. :lol:...

For All Those that Sympathize with Les' predicament - therick711
It is human to do so. It is understandable. Just remember that Les took the AD for a ride with his boy Jeff Long when Arkansas was making their hire three years ago. It lacked any taste or awareness when that happened. Sometimes, these agent games come back and bite you karmically. ...

Is the jury really still out on Steele? - therick711
I thought this deserved its own thread. Obviously, this season isn't over, so let's mention that caveat up front. As of today, LSU's 2015 defense gives up (for all intents and purposes) the same amount of points as the 2008 defense (15-24.3 08-24.2) and more yards than that defense (15-342.8 to 15...

Johnathan Jones Busted Out the Full Court Pressure Last Night - therick711
LSU responded by creating all kinds of havoc in the full court press package. Given the depth of this team, is this something we can expect to see more regularly (think like Louisville) or is this something he will only really use against the bottom-feeders to get out ahead?...

Rules Afficionados: WLCP Muffed Punt - therick711
It was my impression you can't advance a muffed punt. How was Florida able to score the touchdown on that play? Obviously, they didn't advance it, [i]per se[/i], they recovered it in the end zone, but I thought such a recovery was still brought back to the spot of the muff. What is the appropriat...

LSU is putrid in Red Zone Defense - therick711
Very disappointing numbers from any vantage point. What is making us so bad? Obviously, the scheme that allows the flats to be wide open has killed us in multiple games down there (think State, Syracuse, EMU). Something needs to change. LSU has to get better about limiting damage down the stretc...

Is this the first season A&M isn't really an Air Raid team under Sumlin? - therick711
I've seen a few of A&M games and their offensive philosophy appears to have changed from recent years. They still use a lot of gun, and they still sling the ball, but the concepts are much less of what I think of as Air Raid concepts. A&M's passing game looks less like Washington State's or Texas ...

Florida's Defense Is Going to Present a Massive Challenge - therick711
Florida's defense has a tremendous secondary. LSU's issues throwing the ball have been well documented both here and elsewhere. If LSU throws for under 100 yards passing, can they beat Florida? I mean who was the last team to throw for under 100 yards passing and beat Florida? I feel like LSU ...

Southern Coatings Commercial on 104.5 - therick711
The problems with the commercial are manifest. The one that most stands out though is why would you have Wally Pontiff, Sr. say that he approves this message at the end of the spot? It isn't a political ad. Very strange. Local commercials are the worst....

Does Eastern Michigan have more fight than they did last year - therick711
Many experts have classified LSU's offensive line, full back, and tight end groups as a wall. Last time the EMUs faced a wall, they lost pretty bad. [link=(http://www.tigerdroppings.com/ncaa-football/eastern-michigan-brick-wall-entrance-failed/51920199/)]LINK[/link] That wall was a patsy wall...
