1/9/12 -- What have you heard happened that caused LSU to play so poorly? - Captain Want
I know, I know...beating a dead horse. But I've seen a lot of random things here and there over the last couple of weeks or so that has caused me to wonder again about the 1/9/12 game and what happened to LSU. First -- Finebaum told Marcus Spears that he had seen a lot of LSU players including Jo...

Pros/Cons of not having a new DC lined up at this point - Captain Want
Pros: If you believe Les Miles can recruit well, he has the option to take the place of the defensive coordinator on recruiting visits. The dead period ends soon. Cons: Defensive recruits don't know who will be the coordinator, the scheme that coordinator will run, etc. The uncertainty there c...

Mel Tucker -- I hope this is not the guy - Captain Want
Tucker has had a terrible run in Chicago as the Bears DC the last two years. The defensive drop-off from the Lovie Smith era to now is obvious and fans there are happy for him to go. Seems like we could do better....

What is indisputable video evidence? - Captain Want
For NFL replay reviews, isn't the standard that the original call was clearly 100% wrong -- indisputable video evidence? I think the Dez Bryant overrule did not meet that standard. I also think a lot less people would be upset about the reversal than what we have now. ...

Spinoff from the Hanagriff thread: I'd be surprised if it's Zook - Captain Want
Charlie did say that you take the name off the resume, and people would be happy. He also said that the guy is currently coaching as a defensive coordinator, and seemed to indicate he was not a current SEC coach. I have looked at Zook's resume.

Why are we keeping Peveto??? - Captain Want
The special teams regressed a lot under his "coaching", and we may be trying to figure out how to get Orgeron into the mix and keep things at 10 coaches on staff. Simple solution: - Hire Shoop (or whoever Les opts to hire) - Keep Brick - Hire Orgeron - Fire or demote or help find Peveto anothe...

Still some smoke regarding Michigan interest in Miles - Captain Want
This mgoblog site is a pretty good place to get information on the search. Here's what the guy says today: [quote]MILES? Webb also reiterated what Les Miles himself said a couple days ago: unlike everyone from Steve Addazio on up, he hasn't heard anything from Michigan. Lorenz thinks that's not a...

Grateful to have Les as our coach - Captain Want
Go ahead and call me a "sunshine pumper", ranters, but I am proud to have a coach: - who has the best record in the SEC, and perhaps the most wins nationally, over his ten-year tenure - consistently has LSU in the running for the SEC and national title (more often than not) - has a fun and ani...

LSU lost to three teams ranked in the top 5 at the time... - Captain Want
...one of which is ranked #1 now, another ranked #5, and another ranked #9. In a year where the SEC West is the toughest division in the nation, and in a year where everyone acknowledged LSU was rebuilding, replacing virtually every skill position on offense. Yet the sky is falling, Miles sucks a...

So if we finish 7-5...or wherever...are these our bowl options? - Captain Want
(1) Advocare Bowl in Shreveport? or (2) Texas Bowl in Houston? I can't believe we would go back to Houston after opening the season there. But...would we accept a bid to a game with the same sponsor as the season opener? And more importantly, if we win the Advocare Bowl, will Les break out the c...

Tra Valentine - why hasn't the SEC cleared him while the NCAA has? - Captain Want
Honest question - I haven't followed that closely but it is really interesting. I figure if the NCAA has investigated and cleared him, then that should be that. What is the hold up? ...

LSU Gameday music - any new stuff? - Captain Want
Posted this on the rant first, and I think I may get more response here. I like songs that have game highlights over the track. Are there any new ones? Also, any other songs for a gameday playlist you'd recommend?...
