[quote]The style of offense that A&M runs does not lend itself to a great defense. [/quote]
The supposed logic of these types of statements the last month or so continue to appear, but is rather baseless. Nothing precludes a team from recruiting great defensive players and pairing great D with a...

[quote]thats part of what irks me about boyhood. i read the hyperbole in a lot of reviews(top 10 all time, best of the decade, etc) and i came away being completely let down. [/quote]
That is what has happened to me a lot over the years, including Argo. I just don't think I am a fan of Ben A, th...

[quote]“I think we hit about 40 home runs last year, if I am not mistaken. If I did predict, I would guess that we are going to probably hit about 60 to 70 home runs this year. It's not going to return to the 'Gorilla Ball' days, no question about that. But, I do think that there will be more home r...

The lack of anticipation/communication between M & M was excruciating in the last 3 minutes. The two to Mickey you had to scratch your head with his lack of anticipation of needing to move slightly to catch the pass. Then there was the chronic inbounding issues with Martin two games ago and it occ...

People keep writing this as if the players don't do anything to "earn" their scholarships. They exchange vast amounts of time under the mandate of the football program to increase athletic skills that few i...

[quote]And yea they are great recruiters... But it's not like we are struggling on the recruiting end. [/quote]
Well, for highly rated recruiting classes, they certainly seem to have gaps in classes, which have rarely been filled by the next class. Ie, OL, then LB,QB and DT. Maybe these guys, e...

[quote]I couldn't put a number on it, but I'm pretty sure a DC would benefit much more with a 9th ranked TOP offense (LSU 2014) than a 82nd ranked TOP offense (Clemson 2010).[/quote]
The problem with this assumption is that if your team is not putting up TD's, TOP loses importance. LSU 19.1 PPG ...

Putting aside whether the ETF has merit or not, the gross expense ratio of 1.42%, 1,917 volume and tiny $12.2M in AUM are deal killers. Expensive, little to no liquidity, would not invest nor speculate in DIVI.

It was 12 here last night, smoked chicken still tasted great, man up. Shit, you don't even have to put ice in your glass when outside. I will admit to taking it very slow getting the Primo warmed up to cooking temps when it is like this. ...

Don't give Peveto a free ride here. He has taken a highly effective kicking unit and turned it into crap this season. Bumbling kickoffs, highly accurate FG/PAT rendered inoperable and replacement wasn't much better....

Meh, who cares anymore? If there was awesomeness 9n the roster he would have played. Someone better start bringing in QBs with ability AND football IQs, apparently the guys on roster don't have the latter....

Like I said, 2 more on the money deep passes by OSU QB. LSU better learn how to coach over short cycles. I have no damn idea what they do every week as it sure as hell doesn't materialize in the pass game....

Oh, I don't know. Watch OSU's 3rd string QB in his 2nd career start move his team effectively vs Bama. How could he ever been ready when it takes a Miles QB 3+ seasons......
