| Tiger Rant|| re: "Our offense is not designed to score touchdowns"- wtf does this mean - NoGeaux on 12/11/14 at 5:40 pm|
I am sure the staff "wants" to score TD's. But the offense we put on the field isn't competent enough in the passing game to keep defenses honest thus making it difficult to score points.
It's not about the desire to score. I am sure they want to, I am sure the staff believes the offense we r...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Regardless, Notre Dame is a BIG name and thats all I wanted in an opponent - NoGeaux on 12/8/14 at 8:44 am|
In regard to exposure there is no question a primetime matchup would be more beneficial. ND bcs of a national fan base may get the game a higher than normal afternoon rating, we will not likely get the normal football fan and casual fan that the game may have gotten if played when more people were ...

Nothing says elite more than playing a 5 loss team, losers of 4 straight in a meaningless bowl game.
| Coaching Changes|| re: Braden Gall (Athlon Sports) said if Miles leaves for Michigan... - NoGeaux on 12/4/14 at 2:32 pm|
Why? I don't know Jimbo personally but coaches have egos.
The SEC is arguably the best conference and the SECW arguably the best division in college football.
Some "alpha" coaches just might want to compete against the best each week.
Jimbo is a good recruiter has some LA ties as ot...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Chavis and Cam are under contract with LSU for 2015.... - NoGeaux on 12/4/14 at 8:01 am|
It doesn't work like that.
Les will make a decision best for him and his family.
Chavis has said several times LSU with Miles is likely his last stop. He might retire.
Cameron may go with Les, may go somewhere else.
In any case it's not a deal where LSU pays the contract if eith...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Chavis and Cam are under contract with LSU for 2015.... - NoGeaux on 12/4/14 at 7:46 am|
Miles may or may not have interest in Mich (and vice versa) but the 2yr contracts for assistants will have absolutely zero bearing on it ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: There is hope regarding early departures but it might not be good. - NoGeaux on 12/1/14 at 1:31 pm|
If 2015 isn't the no excuses year. What year can we expect there will be no excuses and we are expected to win the SEC West again?...
| Tiger Rant|| re: A lot of you are wanting Miles gone - NoGeaux on 11/16/14 at 6:06 pm|
Well since you asked:
If I were LSU I would make Jimbo say no. Sell it as competing in the best conference against the best coaches. He is #1 on the list by quite a margin.
After that Jim Mora, Jr. Basically same sales job.
There are others like Ric...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Do you think Les actually changes Cam's calls 50% of the time? - NoGeaux on 11/16/14 at 10:21 am|
It's more than 3 or 4. But Miles approves the gameplans and at some point regardless of what an OC wants to implement if the HC says no, The HC is the HC.
You adapt and develop gameplans you know the HC will be comfortable with. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: 3100, 1400, 1200, 1100......17 - NoGeaux on 11/10/14 at 2:11 pm|
That's the problem. Truth is you will be here next year with the same excuse because we lose Collins, Porter possibly Hawkins and/V. Alexander. The OL could be very very young and inexperienced.
Youth can always and will always be an excuse for some.
At what point can we say youth is no l...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Due to suspicious calls and no calls I'm now forced to game plan for that - NoGeaux on 11/10/14 at 8:03 am|
I would hope if Miles spends any time looking back at the game and developing a response to it, it would be to try and develop a passing attack that is at least moderately efficient. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How can anyone honestly say Miles got out coached? - NoGeaux on 11/9/14 at 4:16 pm|
It's not only developing QB's but that's part of it. It's recruiting and keeping kids in the program that can step up and play when called upon.
You mention Russell and could have mentioned Mett.
But you can also mention Jefferson and Lee.
I'm not saying it's easy. I took issue with y...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Is there another fan base that wants to fire their coach every time they lose? - NoGeaux on 11/9/14 at 4:00 pm|
Haven't seen many calling for Les to be fired. But sure would be nice if we could at least have a modestly effective passing attack.
I hope we get better with Jennings or give Harris a shot.
It's just too damn hard to win games when you are so limited on O.
We all want to win. Why ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How can anyone honestly say Miles got out coached? - NoGeaux on 11/9/14 at 3:50 pm|
Wait what? As you said we are severely limited at QB. I agree. Where I take issue is that you seem to suggest poor ole Les is saddled with it, that it was something totally out of his control.
Les is responsible for recruiting including QB's, Les is responsible for ensuring at every positi...
| Tiger Rant|| re: is Baylor vs West Virginia what you want LSU to be? - NoGeaux on 10/18/14 at 11:35 am|
No but it sure would be nice to have an offense that on any down from any formation can reasonably be expected to execute a pass play. ...

Unless you listened to a different broadcast than I did, which I'll admit is possible, I think you are totally misunderstanding what he was saying.
What I heard was it was difficult to form an opinion about this team because the guard play is from newcomers, you don't know what to expect from Q...

Did you watch that game. Mullen called off the dawgs, benched his starters and stopped trying to score.
A fair accurate thread title would be LSU 1 play away from beating the 3rd ranked teams backups. ...

Why not count BCS Champ game wins?
It would seem those would be relevant.
| Tiger Rant|| re: News Flash: Harris is a True Freshman - NoGeaux on 10/6/14 at 3:44 pm|
[quote], but the problem was not in the mix or quantity of pass plays called.[/quote]
It was 17-0 before we completed a pass. After going 3 and out 3 straight times.
We only attempted 1 pass in the first 9 plays.
1 out of first 9 is good mix?
