[quote]And was benched. After being booed by the entire stadium. I think he was punished. [/quote]
He was still put in after all 3 turnovers for 3 more drives.
The booing was horrible taste by the fans, but they started it because he kept being put back in despite his struggles.

[quote]So we should have benched Mett vs. Ole Miss last year?
Every QB has games like that. Maybe Les wanted to see how his QB would respond to it.
Mett threw three horrible INTs in that game, and had he sat a drive and been calmed down, perhaps LSU wins that game.
When a player c...

[quote]pulling a QB for a turnover is drastically different than pulling a runningback. jesus you people are dumb[/quote]
Then you are even dumber, since I clearly stated a comparison in which the QB had multiple turnovers in a game, and particularly in a short period of times.
Saying that a Q...

So, in YOUR world:
would all be benched because they threw interceptions? [/quote]
1) They have a history of proving they are legitimate QBs.
2) They are professionals, and thus a different point.
3) Early in ...

Not until 4 drives later, and with JJ he never lost his job until he got suspended and basically got it back once he returned. :lol:

I'd say 1 fumble by a running back versus ...

[quote]I don't think QB's are held to the same standard, nor should they be. [/quote]
Understood, and they shouldn't be, but in the extreme cases I presented, I believe he proved that this rule of turning the ball over and seeing the bench only applies to certain players.
It may be his way, b...

How am I butthurt? I said I agree with the premise, but don't agree with his inconsistent application of the strategy.
Are INTs or fumbles by QBs any less detrimental to the team?
INTs happen sometimes as do fumbles, so I understand not having a knee jerk re...

[quote]It seems to me like putting a player on the bench following a fumble is the wrong approach - personally I would give that guy the very next carry to keep his confidence up.
I wouldn't have an issue with it if he wasn't so hypocritical about it.

I think it is funny that people were doom and gloom after MSU and beating up on a horrible NMSU team now magically makes LSU a contender again.
LSU could possibly go 6-6 IMO or 11-1. The defense...

Getting these little runts to stop cheering STTDB would be a better use of the SG presidents time than whining about booing (which is stupid, don't get me wrong).
Is he really expecting students that are so stupid at times that they think STTDB is somehow cool and intelligent to get his point? :b...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Herron, Bain, Gilmore not playing much - Geauxgurt on 9/30/14 at 12:06 pm|
People complaining about depth can gladly blame Les and company for that. In 2012, they took 1, read that ONE DL recruit and he was a DE.
Yes, the departures have hurt, but to act like the coaches are blameless in the predicament is ridiculous.
Les and his recruiting strategy are mostly to bl...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Miles on booing fans - Geauxgurt on 9/29/14 at 4:59 pm|
The booing was stupid and unnecessary, but I like how Les ignores the fact that he had a hand in instigating it.
The kid was struggling, and needed to sit a series or two if anything to collect himself, yet the coach in his own stubbornness refused to do that for whatever reason he had.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Feel really bad for Jennings. - Geauxgurt on 9/29/14 at 4:51 pm|
[quote]First the nutsacks that were booing and now today's news. Hope the kid can stay positive because I'm sure we'll need him again. [/quote]
Fans booing was harsh, but this kid is definitely mentally strong at least with his focus on the team winning. You saw it in the game itself when he did ...

How about his refusal to bench JJ in the Vandy game in 2010 when he fumbled 3 times in the first half alone, yet benched Hilliard for most of the game following his fumble Saturda...

Technically, Les wins less than 80% of his games, not more. :lol:...
