He is a north south runner like Hester, and he finishes runs the way Hester did, always getting the maximum yardage he should get. But he is much quicker and not as bog.
McGee reminds me of Ray Rice, both is physical appearance and the way he runs. To me, McGee is the most consistently effective ...

I think of Landry as the offensive version of TM7.
He is the best playmaker we have had on offense in many years. I think he has replaced Michael Clayton as my all time favorite offensive player for LSU.
If I was an NFL exec, Landry would be the first receiver from LSU taken in the draft, and ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Hindsight: why did LSU change the offense last week and this week? - Housplants on 10/20/13 at 3:39 pm|
Miles decided he wanted to run it down UF and OM throats early in the game. The only passes thrown were on third and medium to long, allowing the defense to stack the line against the run and pin their ears back on third down.
I think it also took Mett totally out of his rhythm, and it seems to h...

I think the most disappointing players have been Barrow and Loston. Welter is not an SEC linebacker, but Barrow was expected to be a stalwart for us. In my opinion, he has played every bit as poorly as Welter.
Loston is projected as a high draft pick, but he has not ball awareness whatsoever. He ...
