Why did the Gators play Macmullen like that? - Penrod
Second baseman was shaded toward second and the right fielder was very shallow. It seemed like the opposite of what they should have done. Am I missing something? Home run made it moot, anyway. ...

[quote]Yet that doesn’t mean there won’t be a battle when he was asked whether he wanted Jennings to treat the job like it was his to lose. “I want them both, all three of the quarterbacks, to know that it’s going to be given to no one (and) earned by the one that plays,” he said.[/quote] "both"...

I was wrong about Mills playing corner! - Penrod
I was really looking forward to three dominant corners next season. It looks like the coaches have little confidence in the safeties, and they're going to leave Mills there through spring. Here's hoping that Jefferson and company pick up the pace, and that the new guys - Paris, Adams, and Battle -...

Les Miles -in the arena! - Penrod
As Miles shakes up his staff, and as he fights back from recent recruiting setbacks, he does so under a barrage of criticism from armchair coaches, and reminds me of Teddy Roosevelt's words: It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer...

Defensive Tackles for Next Year - Penrod
I believe that this position will determine our 2014. Assuming Ego and AJ go pro, how are we shaping up? Obviously LaCouture would be a favorite for a starting position. QT seems more like a steady backup. If MJ hasn't panned out by now then the parade is probably past. We need two studs out of Bai...

Jarvis Landry's first quarter catch! - Penrod
He was tripped, and falling down, but still had the body control to catch that bomb down the right sideline. An extraordinary play that wasn't fully appreciated by the announcers. For those of you who weren't around in the 80's, this guy is so like Eric Martin it's eerie! Sorry I'm too techn...

Cam is setting up the middle for RBs and TEs - Penrod
Almost the whole passing game has been to the two WRs on deep outs, seams, and posts. This will encourage teams to start doubling the two WRs or getting deep drops from their short zones, because you can't stop well executed timed outs any other way. When the Ds start doubling our two WRs the TEs in...

TreDavious White a receiver? - Penrod

Not complaining but two poor calls... - Penrod
Katz holding the runner at first. Awful oversight! If you've decided to bunt why accept such a huge defensive drop off at catcher? I wouldn't call this a bad decision, but it's suspect. It was a great decision to bunt Sciambre because he had a poor lefty matchup. ...

Just a suggestion to the administrators: After posting we're left with two choices, to return to the board, or to jump to my post. A third choice would be the best, to return to the post to which I responded. That would be what I would most often choose. Thanks. ...

DT depth next year - MJ and QT - Penrod
Next year's team seems stacked at every position except DLine. There we can expect solid starters with AJ and Ego at DT and Rasco and Hunter at DE (based on reports that Hunter is studly), but the depth is worrisome. We have some nice commits for next year, so I'm not worried about DE, but DT is a p...

Washington's winning and announcers are arguing about LSU/Bama vs Stanford - Penrod
One announcer was bragging on the Stanford front seven, saying it was just as good as Bama's or LSU's. The other said LSU has more athleticism, citing Mingo and Montgomery. The first guy says Stanford is just as athletic. Five minutes later Washington is gashing them on the ground and the second...

OBJ's One-handed snag - Penrod
The play was blown dead before the throw. It would have been a bubble screen on the second play of the second half. ODB casually snagged it with his inside arm - a very difficult way to make a one-handed catch. That guy is quite an athlete!...

Switch Mingo and Montgomery - Penrod
In the Morning Advocate article [link=(http://theadvocate.com/sports/lsu/3591279-123/balancing-act)]LINK[/link] Montgomery says he's more powerful and Mingo's faster. Wouldn't that tandem be more effective with the speed guy coming from the blind side and the power guy planted on the offense's righ...

Key to game 3, Cotton + Bonvillain - Penrod
Lot's of good leftie hitters and they are tough on fastballs. Unless Eades has better than his normal control, look for him to exit early and give way to about five innings of Cotton and Bonvillain. If Eades has a very short outing, then somewhere between those pitching changes we could see Rumbelo...

Wrong Charles Alexander, Dandy Don! - Penrod
On dandydon.com he highlights players whose jersey numbers match the number of days until football starts. Today is 91 so he highlighted #91 Charles Alexander. Unfortunately he described Charles Alexander the running back from the 1970's, who wore #4 as I recall, instead of the recent #91, a DE of t...

RB to WR? - Penrod
From the Advocate this morning... Miles said he and his staff have talked about possibly moving one of the running backs from a crowded backfield to wide receiver, but it may be a little early for that. “I’m not so certain he’s not our best tailback, so that’s one of the reasons we’re moving slow...

Here is a sentence that an otherwise good poster wrote in another thread: I just think.. what if the LSU football team has 5, 8, 13 MNC's....most of the fanbase might have a more 'entitlement' complex than the bama fans. Why does LSU have a "fanbase" but Bama just has "fans"? "Fanbase" is ...

LSU Linebackers - Better than Advertised - Penrod
I rewatched the Georgia game. Kevin Minter played awfully well. He has been improving all year, and he's arrived. He played a lot against Bama last time, but he's a whole new player now. Baker is a first rate LB; Francois is very good; and Minter is extremely good. In the beginning of the year ...

LSU obviously has a lot of overall talent on defense, but this is about the freakish talent.
