| LSU Recruiting Board|| The Myth that LSU Cannot Develop QBs - Mike Linebacker on 2/17/15 at 2:07 pm|
Everyone pretty much agrees that Shea Patterson committed to Ole Miss today as part of a package deal to further his brother's coaching career. Apologists for the Pattersons have justified this saying that outside of 2013, LSU has not developed QBs. First of all, let me acknowledge that the QB spo...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| How is the Composite Done - Mike Linebacker on 2/4/15 at 7:07 pm|
Keep seeing folks say we're ranked #5. Scout has us at 12, ESPN at 10 and Rivals at 8. The 247 Composite has us at 5 somehow.
I checked their website and it says:
[quote]The 247Sports Team rankings are calculated using the industry-generated 247Sports Composite player rankings - which is a p...

I have an Aggie friend who is up in the 12th Man Foundation who told me that there will be wholesale changes when the season is over, with as many as 4 assistant coaches gone. The team is a bunch of prima donnas who clearly quit against Bama. Didn't even try.
Meanwhile, Florida is even more of ...
| Tiger Rant|| Experience Matters - Please be Patient - Mike Linebacker on 10/12/14 at 5:20 pm|
The Tigers will not accomplish their goals this year (no NC, SEC title or SEC West title). But this year is still very important.
People do not like hearing the "we're young" excuse and I get that. We pay Les Miles $4+ million, our coordinators each make > $1 million and we expect them to tak...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Out of State Recruits - An Observation - Mike Linebacker on 1/22/14 at 3:17 pm|
It seems as though Les Miles and LSU have faired very well with out of state recruits. After 1/2, they got reengaged with some big time recruits and are securing at least visits. That speaks volumes to the perception and respect that Les and LSU command nationally.
In recent years, we are sig...

After leaving us for Tampa Bay, Cooper lost his job and is now the DB coach/Assistant Head Coach for the University of South Florida.
Since Cooper left, the secondary coaching has seemed suspect. In 2012, players like Eric Reid and Tharold Simon appeared to regress (or at least plateau) from p...

The recruitment of Robert Nkemdiche has been pretty interesting. It reminds me of the recruitment of Sam Montgomery. True, Montgomery wasn't the #1 overall recruited, but he was very highly rated. Like Nkemdiche, Montgomery for whatever reason wasn't interested in his home state schools. He flir...

| Tiger Rant|| Enough griping...legit theoretical football question - Mike Linebacker on 1/3/13 at 10:42 pm|
Oregon wore out Kansas State with hurry up. We traditionally wear out people with power. What if we started doing both next year: hurry up power football as opposed to hurry up spread. If defenses get gassed by tempo and worn done by power, it seems to me to stand to reason that the combination coul...

Seems like everything is going awesome with Kiel but with him being from the midwest and tOSU inking Urban, is there a concern we'll lose out on this kid?
I would imagine that the prospect of sanctions and the loss of talent from tOSU plus LSU being pretty set for next year and beyond would sway ...
