| Tiger Rant|| re: lsu vs Wisconsin line has moved! updated 5.5 now - MOT on 8/27/14 at 4:22 pm|
[quote]The fact that Wisc has named a QB and LSU has pledged to play two probably scared the non-emotionally vested betters.[/quote]
That move means more money has been on LSU, not the other way around.
Unless I misunderstood your post and you think people are being scared off by the QB Wisconsi...

[quote]He's prolly the most hyped in LSU history.
I would put la recruits in that order.[/quote]
Booty should be much higher. The media coverage of recruiting wasn't as big back then but when he originally...

[quote]they are about to. Did you see the practice film of LSU running the zone read play with the option to pass to WR in the flat? Other teams are about to start running that play all across the country.[/quote]
And I first remember LSU running it against Arkansas in 2003.
Maybe Gus was just ...

Then you haven't really been paying attention, and it isn't designed to score a TD on every play anyway....

[quote] Other than that, there's nothing that stands out about him now over Williams[/quote]
Williams isn't bad by any stretch, but based on the scrimmage he doesn't have anywhere near the burst or big play ability of Fournette. All of the talk about Fournette being mature, big, and strong...

[quote]Win percentage is skewed b/c there are at least 3 games on the modern schedule which are automatic wins. [/quote]
Please point to the three automatic wins on the 2011 schedule. Then also address how the 13th game of that particular season factors into your analysis. In the best years you are...

This is actually an easy answer.

They have a couple of tuneup games. They're just in weeks 3 and 4 instead of 1 and 2.
Jacksonville state would rather go get hammered by Michigan State for $200K more than Cincy is willing to pay to hammer them. Converseley...

That doesn't have anything to do with having byes the first two weeks. They're playing two MAC schools and are playing at Ohio State and Miami. ...

I don't believe they are allowed to. That's why their 2013 replays wrapped up last weekend, prior to the SECN launch, when they would normally run all the way to the weekend before the first game....
