How would Les do at Michigan? - Tigerpaul1969
Since everything is mere speculation at this point, I thought it would be an interesting mental exercise to consider Les taking the Michigan job. I think he could have them back to competing for a Big 10 title within 2 to 3 years. He would finally give Urban Meyer some competition in Ohio for recr...

Offensive rookies starting in the NFL - Tigerpaul1969
I can't think of a year where one college team produced rookie NFL starters at QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs and a starter on the O line. Can anyone think of something comparable? Maybe one of those great Miami teams or a Husker team that produced 4 O linemen? The year Carson Palmer was picked at USC? ...

Gary Danielson on Brando's show - Tigerpaul1969
He says that the LSU Bama game this past week was the most physical he's seen since the 2007 LSU Florida game....

Explain why Ole Miss should drop - Tigerpaul1969
If they were 4th in the committee's rankings last week, and they sort of "lost" in a toss up game with a freak "accident" against the No. 3 team in their rankings, why should they move at all? Don't mention the loss to LSU the week before because the committee already concluded they were 4th WITH t...

Any chance Valentine gets cleared? - Tigerpaul1969
I mean, in time for the Alabama game. I would assume the folks in Birmingham would want LSU to be at full strength for the big game, right? Given that the NCAA took about a week and a half to clear him, it seems like 10 weeks should be long enough for the nice folks in Alabama (the state, not the ...

Defensive end questions - Tigerpaul1969
Is Bower next man up after Rasco and Hunter? With Neal pitching in on the interior, we don't have that many names left at DE. What about Maclin? Will he see the field? I'm assuming Patterson and Bower are the 2 deep but who comes next? Anyone know anything?...

Mickey Johnson and DT depth - Tigerpaul1969
With QT getting hurt, I hear Herron's name a lot. I also hear Bain, Gilmore and even Valentine as guys that need to step up. Is Mickey not a viable option as a guy with at least some experience in this defense at that position? I never really hear his name mentioned....

Rarely mentioned players who can have a huge impact - Tigerpaul1969
I have two in mind. Evan Washington-I know most seem to think Fanaika has the RG spot locked up, but even if he does, we'll need Evan to step in and not lose a step. I've been expecting a lot from him since we signed him in the 2005 class (yes I know, it just feels like it was that long ago), bu...

Will Auburn really do what they did last year? Who else might? - Tigerpaul1969
Am I the only one who doesn't think Auburn repeats what they did last year? Does anyone not remember: Four games they pulled out of their butts with back-to-back all-timer miracle finishes Blowout loss to LSU Very tight game against Wazzou? There is a fine line between going 12-1 and 7-5, a...

Les Miles in Tiger Stadium - Tigerpaul1969
Les has been head coach for the entirety of the two longest home winning streaks in LSU history: 22 (2009-13) and 19 (2005-07). We're currently at 9 straight, which is 7th on the all time list. The current streak should hit at least 15, depending on what happens against Ole Miss. I will continu...

Question about Rivals site - Tigerpaul1969
You used to be able to go in the free section of Rivals and get team rankings by position but I'm not seeing it anymore. Did they do away with that or force you to pay for that now?...

A little something for our Aggie brethren - Tigerpaul1969
If t.u. was in the SEC, their recruiting class would be ranked 10th, just behind Ole Miss and just ahead of Kentucky. If they were in the SEC West, their class would rank 6th. Just sayin. This is based on 247, which I believe is the best current recruiting service....

Mississippi State is so close every year - Tigerpaul1969
They seem to have the recipe for doing well in the SEC. A solid running game. Good up front, especially on defense. Typically pretty good secondary. They were the only team in the SEC in 2011 to fight LSU and Alabama for 4 quarters. This year, the combined record of the teams they lost to was...

How many spots does Bama have left? - Tigerpaul1969
Has anyone looked into this? I'm posting here because of the fact that Bama is in on at least four players that we are on off the top of my head: Malik McDowell, LF, Tony Brown and Lorenzo Carter. They have 24 commitments currently, and there was supposed to be a hard and fast limit in the SEC of...

We've only played at Bryant-Denny 15 times - Tigerpaul1969
Our overall record there is 9-6. BDS opened in 1929, and we only played there three times between then and 1988, when the series shifted from its then-home at Legion Field in Birmingham. Since that 1988 game at BDS, we are 8-4 there. The four losses were in 90, 95, 99 and 09, and what's inter...

Basketball depth - Tigerpaul1969
When was the last time we had this kind of depth on our basketball team? I seriously think you have to go back to the Dale Brown era to find it. Brady's teams were hampered early with scholarship restrictions, and we had some great front line talent on some of his teams, but we never had guys wh...

Saban has a great chance to win titles at three schools - Tigerpaul1969
I think this would be the biggest lure to go to Texas. Let's face it, with their resources and state talent and playing in a fairly weak Big 12, he could easily win a title and possibly multiple titles there. His legacy, which is already as one of the greats of all time, would go through the roof ...
