my LSU vs Kentucky experience with my dad - LSU GrandDad
can't remember the exact year but Kentucky had their twin towers (bowie and turpin) and joe b hall was their coach. I am an LSU alum and baton rouge resident and I brought my dad, a kentuck by birth and ky grad, to the game at the pmac. of course he told me LSU didn't have a chance. the place was...

Bona Fide reasons for optimism in 2015 - LSU GrandDad
I see more reasons than any season since 2013 with Mett as a SR QB. 1) we will have an experienced, talented and well coached OL. this is indeed #1 and this critical component had me the most worried. Kudo's to our guys returning! and Grimes IS an improvement. 2) high likelihood of much improv...

LSU Recruiting Board
we've been really great at recruiting for the secondary - LSU GrandDad

my big hope is that we'll be able to recruit DL again - LSU GrandDad
lack of a pass rush and lack of good run D up the middle has killed our defense the last 3 years. I don't give a damn about these "ratings" for defense based on yardage given up over a whole season. if Steele can recruit as well as reported, this move may actually turn out really good. ...

for al the "money grows on trees" crowd - LSU GrandDad
the university of tejas just reported close to a $3million loss by their athletic department this past year. all of this talk about them being the richest of the rich, etc, etc is turning out to be bull shite. LSU's athletic dept. keeps plugging away as one of the top 5-10 biggest money maker...

a&m's former DC was the sacrificial lamb - LSU GrandDad
he took the blame for their season. just like their last DC. they didn't have the athletes on the DL and at other key positions; it's not that he was that bad of a DC. in fact, those last 2 DC's were much better at their job BEFORE they came to college station. it appears that they just weren't ...

we're not chopped liver; we're LSU - LSU GrandDad
LSU is a damn attractive place to coach. a potential DC will have great athletes, a damn good staff and the experience level is very good right now. chavis was paid very well here; one of the best DC salaries in football. so, give miles the ok to pay up to 1.7 mil and I think we can get a top fl...

LSU vs A&M next year - LSU GrandDad
with Chief as their DC he will know our offensive tendencies. does that spell doom? well, imo, every other defense in the league knows our tendencies already. we SHOULD be able to compensate for that. it will take a great game plan and solid execution (esp in passing game) BUT, we will know hi...

the negativity on this board is amazing - LSU GrandDad
esp. after a loss. ok, I get that the miles haters group is growing and growing fast. our DC is considering going to a divisional foe and taking our DL coach with him. our offense stunk this year and any improvement is ignored. our real good juniors are contemplating leaving early for the NFL and we...

big thing i noticed about arky last night (LSU related) - LSU GrandDad
when the score was 17-10 arky's offense seemed to lose some fire for a couple of drives. this is so reminiscent of LSU as we seem to let the other team back in the game damn near every time. then, arky put it's foot back on the accelerator and didn't let up until Tejas gave up late in the 4th. my on...

one of the reasons our offense was so good last year - LSU GrandDad
was that mett, beckam and landry worked out together in the offseason. they worked on timing routes, etc and it really improved their timing in the season. they converted a hell of a lot of 3rd downs using these timing routes and it made a hell of a difference. this year, we didn't have that. let...

AJ played good enough for LSU to win that game - LSU GrandDad
I know i'm gonna get killed for this but I have seen improvement by our QB in the last 2 games. he used his feet well, he didn't panic and the only interception was when the wr fell down. sure, his passing stats sucked but if the 4 dropped passes didn't happen no one would be so down on him. als...

Kevin Sumlin direct quote. LSU related - LSU GrandDad
in this mornings' Houston Chronicle, Sumlin quotes.."we need to examine what we're doing schematically". this is after rushing for 31 yds yesterday. (1.3 yds per carry). also, his offense had only 8 first downs and was 19-31 for 141 yds. similarly, West Virginia (of all teams) virtually shut d...

After watching the replay of the Florida game - LSU GrandDad
it is amazing how long it takes to get a play called. and how does a team get a delay of game penalty following a time out? there is something wrong with our OC. seriously. he's either indecisive as hell or he is a micro mgr and has to give 50 instructions along with the play call. we won the...

What teams in the west have a legitimate shot at last place? - LSU GrandDad
ok auburn, bama, ole miss and msu are out of this competition. they just don't qualify. that leaves us with a&m, lsu and Arkansas. and this is going to be some close race. A&M: self anointed playoff candidate in August has now hit a wall. they have lost 2 in a row and still have to play bama, ...

Improvements on offense I saw last night - LSU GrandDad
not saying we are a well oiled machine but from an execution standpoint we made some attempts and some strides last night. 1) blocking by OL much improved 2)blocking by WR's and TE's much improved; even saw some downfield blocking by the WR's 3) AJ suffered several coverage sacks. these may be ...

This team has "bottomed out" - LSU GrandDad
we will still suffer some tough patches and will lose some more games but we are on the rise. our offense needs to continue to improve on execution and our Dline needs to continue to improve on it's run D. I saw a lot of good things last night that give me optimism for the future. esp if we c...
