SEC Stadium names / Tiger Stadium - HoopyD
It never really dawned on me that Tiger Stadium is one of only a few stadiums in the SEC that isn't actually named for someone (The others being Kentucky, Missouri and Vanderbilt) So if the stadium is eventually named after someone, who would it be?...

LSU faculty - Thoughts on head coach - HoopyD
This is by no means scientific but I had the pleasure of visiting with 2 LSU faculty members on separate occasions this week. Both were involved with the footbal team to some degree under both Saban and Miles. Both had great things to say about Miles ("great guy", "remembers personal inforamtion a...

One of the best urban legend/horror stories of Death Valley - HoopyD
So I like looking at opposing teams' message boards prior to big games. An Ole Miss forum has a thread about horror stories from visits to LSU. One fan offered this gem.... [quote]"No balloons here, but almost got *beep* on sitting in the student section. Some dude *beep* off of the upper level...

I'll admit it.....I kind of miss the spoiler role - HoopyD
Tiger stadium is at its best when a highly ranked team comes to town and we have a chance to upset them. Not looking past Kentucky but the Ole Miss game should be a fun night. ...

Michael Strahan on GMA - HoopyD
What is the point of Strahan on GMA? His sole contribution is he introduces a story done by someone else who then gives another introduction to the story. ...

LSU and Alabama betting lines seem like a trap - HoopyD
Something seems off with both the LSU and Alabama lines. Both are favored by double digits. Kentucky is legit on both offense and defense and took Florida to overtime. LSU has striaght up struggled on both sides of the ball this year. Alabama's defensive weakness is in the secondary and its ...

You can always tell which teams did well by the icons - HoopyD
Ole Miss and Auburn all over the board. A&M, LSU and SC have gone into hiding. Alabama beat themselves ,as usual, so they only half vacate. ...

Why does Miles get the stubborn label? - HoopyD
Except for the 2011 Championship game, he's usually pretty responsive. Peveto/Mallory not working out. Changes coordinators. Studrawa's O bogging down. Brings in Cam. This years I heavy offense bogging down, changes QB and formations. He doesn't play freshmen. Now plays more freshmen...

Meanwhile....on defense - HoopyD
With all the groaning and moaning about the offense, the fact that we gave up more yards than EVER during Miles' tenure (to Miss St no less) has been completely lost in the discussion. Offense can be fixed. We are really young at critical skill positions but time will take care of that. The c...

Jennings and the QB sneak - HoopyD
MSU is just better than LSU this year. They are loaded with experience and veteran leadership. They beat a team that is young and inexperienced in key positions. Turns out losing truckloads of talent early to the NFL eventually takes a toll. THe loss can be explained. What I can't figure out ...

The Roosevelt Documentary - HoopyD
Anyone else watching this? Great job by Ken Burns again. Best segment so far..... Teddy was shot while on the campaign trail. The bullet went through a 50 page speech tucked in his jacket and lodged in his rib. He carried on and delivered an hour long campaign speech which began with "I don'...

Does LSU bulk up their RBs too much? - HoopyD
Magee seems to have lost his burst and break away speed he showed last year. He also appears to be heavier than last year. Spencer Ware was a break away threat in the Cotton Bowl and then turned into a battering ram the next two years. Same for Hilliard after his frosh year. I realize the bu...

If Auburn beats K State, it won't be because K State wasn't prepared - HoopyD
I've always admired Bill Snyder as a coach. He's probably had plenty of chances to leave for bigger and better things but he's decided to stay there. As a result, he consistently fields a team that probably has no business playing with the big boys but does. Here's a great article from several ...

Anyone else need a printed roster during the games? - HoopyD
We are 3 games in and I still have to look up players from time to time. Case in point.......#47 Moore was lined up in the backfield fairly early in the game. I still have no idea who that is..... This is a really fun team to watch. Waves of talent just flying all over the field. They seem to...

Social media and a political future - HoopyD
How will any kid growing up today run for political office? Their entire lives are lived out in social media, complete with all of the photos and posts that they will regret someday. That stuff doesn't go away either. Even if they are incredibly careful with what they post, everyone has an idiot "f...
