Will the media call Urban out, like they do Les? - Scoob
In case you missed the end of the Orange bowl: Clemson has the ball around midfield, less than a minute left. Ohio St has 2 timeouts left. So you can run the clock out, right? Not so fast- Clemson player gets penalized after 1st down, running onto the field with no helmet. 15 yd penalty, and a...

SEC related- who's our allies in the playoff format? - Scoob
First off, congrats to Auburn, and Go War Eagles :cheers: Now- I haven't seen a thread on this, so point me to one if it's already established. We swap away from the BCS after this season to the 4 team playoff. It's already been established that a "committee" will select the four, and not a t...

Almost over; check in if your team won the BCS - Scoob
This era is coming to an end; the playoff will be weighted towards conference champs (1 SEC team out of 4). We likely won't see another stretch of dominance like we just went through. not just one team (although Bama certainly put an exclamation point on it), but conference-wide: Fla, LSU, and Bama ...

Sean Payton at Tiger Stadium- wonder who he scouted - Scoob
I'm sure he mostly was enjoying the rare day off, but he probably can't NOT scout/profile players when he watches. I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't draft someone out of that game. The obvious candidates are the WRs, as Evans looks like a Colston clone, and both Beckham and Landry would be j...

Cautionary note to the "Fire Les" crowd - Scoob
look at Florida today. Lost to a FCS team at home, 4-7 and going to be slaughtered by Florida St. [i]"But... it can't happen to us! We're LSU..."[/i] Well, we're LSU, but then again, they're Florida. Their record for the last decade was right there with ours, and before Meyer left, was home to ...

Seahawks game will be a win for the Saints regardless - Scoob
Sorry if already posted, but I didn't see anything similar on the first page. This upcoming game should be great for the Saints, whether they win or not. For once, "just get the W" doesn't actually apply. Reasons: This game isn't as important as the Panthers games; if we beat Seattle but lose ...

here's a band-aid: Ed Reed - Scoob
I don't usually post "should we's", but it's worth a thought, at least. Ed Reed is about to be cut by the Texans [link=(http://theadvocate.com/sports/saints/7565027-123/ed-reed-to-be-released)]LINK[/link], and we coincidentally just lost Vaccaro for a couple games to a concussion.

Question for A&M fans... bowl predictions - Scoob
latest predictions have you in the Cotton again. It's a nice bowl, no doubt. Not saying it isn't; would y'all prefer that at this point, or do you want a different destination? Try out some of the Fla bowls (my understanding is it's been forever since you've played in one of those)? Note- no...

Way too early playoff thoughts... - Scoob
With the Falcons crumbling and the Bucs in freefall, the Saints would have to [b]totally[/b] collapse to not win the division this season. I realize it's very early, but seriously- we basically have the NFC South in hand, with 2/3 of the season left. Right now, we have one legit weakness, and th...

What is Ryan's defense, really? - Scoob
We've been calling it a 3-4, but is sure doesn't look like one. Will Smith was planned to start at one "linebacker", and now, we are keeping 3 "true" OLBs on the roster (I put "true" in quotes, because Galette has never played LB prior to this year, and Wilson, while a former LB, had also just moved...

Do the Saints have the balls to make a big trade? - Scoob
Ok, here's a risky idea, but one that could help the team- trade a starting WR for a hot young linebacker. A guy who might be backing someone up as of now, but will step in and start for the Saints. Insane? Answer me this- how deep is our WR group right now? When you need a big, physical receiver...

Who are the special teams locks? - Scoob
looking over the roster, we got a good feel for the starters at most spots (and the top 4 WRs for sure). But then you get into backup territory, and it gets a little iffy; we gotta field a good set of special teams too, and most of those guys won't be our starters. And while somebody might be a ...

Rufus Johnson vs Chase Thomas - Scoob
Rufus drafted (6th rd, I know) on pure potential; but we don't have the slightest clue if he will make the 1st cut. Chase went undrafted completely despite a stellar career; hell he was All American in 2011. I guess the knock is- he's max'ed out his physical potential... but damn, he seems like a...

Here's a weird thought... - Scoob
The only times Harper has looked good is when he's up in the box. He plays solid against the run, and he's honestly been one of our best pass rushers on the blitz. Other than his (obviously small) size, he plays like a ... outside linebacker. Not that I would want this over a true linebacker ...

Any regrets joining the SEC, Aggies? - Scoob
Not a flame, just an observation on how 2012 turned out. Big 12 was weak, and you could have ran the table. Decent chance at being 12-0, and as we saw you could play with Bama in a one-game scenario. More than likely, you would have smoked Notre Dame had that been the matchup. This could have be...

sorry if this has been already brought up, but I didn't see it on the first page.

I'm an LSU fan and alum, but I've always supported the state schools in the past. I just noticed their basketball team is 25-3 and ranked (wow, congrats to the Bulldogs). Combined with their last football season, they're having a great year. Really a couple questions- are they a lock for the NCAA...

Looking ahead to 2013 season - Scoob
Miles made the comment that the 2013 offense might be his best yet. Granted, that's probably something over 90% of coaches will say about "next year", but how much is in place for it to be true? What we have coming back: 1) a QB in Mett who seems very skilled, and made a lot of progress over the...

You know how certain teams' fans are stereotyped? That has been the case with LSU. Up until very recently, LSU fans were perceived as the Stiffler, the Spicoli of the college crowd. Loud, rowdy, crazy party fools, going to dominate in any environment. What are we now? We're acting like whiny, se...
