Prediction: Mett will try to force balls into tight spaces against talented and well coached DB's from an elite SEC program.

[quote]Why do our fans suck so bad?[/quote]
LSU fans are typical of any other fan base. In other words, they bitch about problems, concerns or disappointment.
People have concerns. Have you seen that defense? Imagine that defense without Mett, Hill, OBJ/JL to produce poin...

More so the latter than the former. Great is not an adjective that applies to Miles. He's good at what he does.
I think of Miles like people describe a QB who is a "game manager". (Not that Miles is much of a game manager). However, he ...

This defense has wasted how special it could have been.
Face it. This offensive production in '11 or '12, coupled with the defense of those years, would have been killer.
Next year, without Hill-OBJ-Jarvis, we will have a green offense and th...

I wouldn't put Muschamp in the secure position. Foley doesn't tolerate mediocrity, particularly in football.
My guess is Muschamp is forced to can Brent Pease after this season, possibly to hire ex-gator Kerwin Bell, who has been successful at JU ...

Why anyone gives a flying rat's arse about Jordan Jefferson 2 seasons removed from his departure is a mystery.
What difference does it make now?
The fact that he was so polarizing speaks volumes about his legacy.

They better become more physical. The front seven gets pushed around. Plus, they aren't very fast.

1. If "everywhere you go" people hate on him, stop going there.
2. Fan unrest with coaches is not unique to LSU. UF fans were not satisfied with Spurrier after awhile. It's why he left. He couldn't satisfy them with SEC championships, they wanted it all every year. He had the best team in the...

It's a shame he got moved to the front office because he was the best on the field....

Jimbo would have taken the HC job at UAB if it wasn't sabotaged by Bama. Jimbo wanted out of Baton Rouge and away from Miles. He would have crawled naked to Tallahassee.

Ole Miss outplayed us for the majority of the game.
The emphasis on a single time out that would have preserved a few more seconds is silly.
How about stopping them on any of the third downs where we had an advantage?
What if you had decent game plan?
here's a thought, maybe you should have...
