| Tiger Rant|| 1/9/12 -- What have you heard happened that caused LSU to play so poorly? - Captain Want on 1/29/15 at 12:33 pm|
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...

| Coaching Changes|| Pros/Cons of not having a new DC lined up at this point - Captain Want on 1/13/15 at 3:34 pm|
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.
Defensive recruits don't know who will be the coordinator, the scheme that coordinator will run, etc. The uncertainty there c...
| Coaching Changes|| Mel Tucker -- I hope this is not the guy - Captain Want on 1/12/15 at 3:32 pm|
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....
| More Sports Board|| What is indisputable video evidence? - Captain Want on 1/11/15 at 10:29 pm|
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. ...
| Coaching Changes|| Spinoff from the Hanagriff thread: I'd be surprised if it's Zook - Captain Want on 1/9/15 at 11:53 am|
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. [link=(http://www.packers.com/team/coaches/ron-zook/...
| Coaching Changes|| Why are we keeping Peveto??? - Captain Want on 1/7/15 at 12:42 pm|
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...

He is terrible, and special teams took a huge dive this year from prior years IMO....

"Michigan, which is in the midst of searching for a new football coach, has reached out to LSU coach Les Miles through his agent, a source close to the situation told The Detroit News on Tuesday."

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...

| Tiger Rant|| Grateful to have Les as our coach - Captain Want on 12/3/14 at 9:46 am|
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...

...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...
| Tiger Rant|| So if we finish 7-5...or wherever...are these our bowl options? - Captain Want on 10/8/14 at 4:58 pm|
(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...

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? ...
