NOLA Indy Car Grand Prix - Scoob
Anyone going to catch this on Sunday? It's in Avaondale, and this is the inaugural race. I just looked up the track, it's not an oval (Indy 500 style), it's "Grand Prix" style with a bunch of turns, including some real tight hairpins, and two long straightaways. They are racing Indy cars (open top w...

Johnny Jones is not like Dale Brown - Scoob
So many times, people make the remark that Jones is Dale Brown 2.0, that he can bring players in but not win with them. This is not the case, and never was an issue with Brown. People look back at the CJ/Shaq team and use this criticism, but the problem was internal conflicts. I knew members on ...

Random Washington State football question- RPM offense? - Scoob
They had a team back in the 80's, with the "RPM Offense". I remember: "R" was Mark Rypien, QB (had a good career in the NFL); "M" was Reuben Mayes, RB (and Saints favorite for a couple years); Anyone remember who "P" was? ...

Josh Gray's importance to this team - Scoob
I finally saw Gray's importance, and why he can be key this season and next. He's wild and out of control at times. Very raw for a junior, lacks discipline. BUT- here's the thing: he's here now, and will be here next year too (kid's not an early draft prospect). And inside all that wildnes...

SIAP: but Boise to the Fiesta Bowl? WTF?? - Scoob
I see the Fiesta is still paying premium dollar (18 mil) even though they aren't in this year's rotation. So they are doing some nice funding for teams. So, how the hell does Boise merit this monster payout? Note, this is 15 million more than either TCU or Baylor will recieve. A quick breakd...

Coaching on offense seen last night - Scoob
We get so worked up complaining, that sometimes we miss things. Case in point- the "time management" issue. There's a thread on our "problems" again. And of course, there's always the "playcalling sucks" threads. We did have that "3 stooges" incident, with too many people on the field coming out ...

Most Iconic college uniforms? - Scoob
There was a thread on the Rant [link=(http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/display.aspx?p=51599062&pg=1)]LINK[/link] referring to this article. Note that some folks had difficulty separating "iconic" from "coolest" or "best"... The 10: 10) USC 09) Florida 08) LSU 07) Ohio St. 06) Nebr...

Random rookie free agent question - Scoob
Because I'm bored, there's no real sports to dig into right now. So, a question for the NFL personnel gurus: This Armstrong kid, the center from Grand Valley St, he got invited to the NFL Combine from a division 2 school. How do those guys (kids from lower levels that get invited to the Com...

Next year draft- serious question - Scoob
Someone on the SEC rant posted about the RBs dropping out of the 1st rd (we all know you can get good value later). The poster asked about Todd Gurley, and whether he'd go in the 1st next year, or drop like we've seen recently. I wonder- would the Saints pass on him next year in the first? You go...

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. We're in the m...

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...
