How Much LA-state Affinity Exists Now Compared to the Past? - AlwysATgr
I don't think it's changed much over the years but has declined some. As a kid in the 60's/70's I think most kids in LA who were talented enough wanted to play for LSU. There were a few defections then (Norris Weese, Terry Davis, Billy Cannon Jr.). There seems to be more high-profile defection...

Why the Pound and Punt O Does Not Succeed (Long) - AlwysATgr
Working definition: the pound-n-punt is what we’ve been doing on O post’08. Did you ever wonder why we ran so effectively vs OM and Bama and UF (probably the three best D’s beside ours in the SEC) but struggled against almost everybody else? Risher pointed out that the intensity for the Bama gam...

Five Good Things about TX - AlwysATgr
As a LA ex-pat here’s some wise counsel for those who have to move to another state: don’t get too upset by all the good things you have to leave behind. That will leave you in a perpetually grouchy state. Rather, find the good things of your new surroundings and learn to appreciate them. I wouldn’t...

Old Question vs A&M in '12 - AlwysATgr
Game situation: 7:28 to go in the 4th qtr We're up 17-12 Our ball on our 20 yd line. Mett wasn't having a very good day. But inexplicably (and uncharacteristically of Les) we go on a passing binge. Out nine plays on this possession (not counting the eventual punt) we pass on 6 of the 9. Do...

Is There Any Reason Why We Didn't/Don't Alternate QB's? - AlwysATgr
Seeing that both are struggling. When a team has to rely on a young QB, and said young QB is struggling, it proves helpful to let him watch a series or a possession from the sidelines to settle his thoughts. In fact, AJ's best play all year probably came vs Wisc after Brandon played a series. ...

Coaching Issue – It’s Not as Black and White As Some Think (long) - AlwysATgr
When considering a replacement for Les there seems to be this (wrong) assumption that the next guy will replicate all the good things Les does and simultaneously avoid/correct all the bad things Les does. He recruits his backside off year-in and year-out – not just good classes but outstanding class...

Any SEC Coach Ever Inherit a Better Situation Than Did Les? - AlwysATgr
In recent times? Not meant to be a flame but if we're going to assess Les against other coaches then the set of initial conditions is a legitimate factor to consider. Because incoming coaches are typically replacing fired coaches or long-term coaches being 'forced-out', they don't normally inh...

The Source of So Many Frustrations - AlwysATgr
My hypothesis: ever since the ’08 int fest Les has intentionally played it (ultra?)-conservative on O. Hence, any young QB in our system will play tentatively or O will play handicapped. I think the stats corroborate this. Year, YPG, Rank (YPG) 2000 53 376 2001 11 451 2002 86 350 2003 31 41...
