[quote]We have poor player development, especially on the offensive side of the ball when it comes to skill positions, that is, offensive[/quote]
Sure are a lot of poorly developed skill players making it to the NFL. I'll grant you the QB position. Miles has absolutely sucked it up in that regard...

[quote]Bama has lost to Ole Miss, Auburn, and TAMU these last few years.[/quote]
Outliers are the obstacles to any well made argument.
Not laying everything at the feet of the highly ranked recruits but how many conf titles does OM have? A&M? Auburn caught lightening in a bottle last year but ...

Afford Oregeron? No one will hire the guy, how much do you think he's going to command?...

[quote]Clemson also doesn't have the talent Bama or LSU has on defense[/quote]
They also play in the ACC. At the time, not nearly as good as the conf is now....

[quote]This is a pipe dream[/quote]
Not mine. O doesn't bring anything other than recruiting chops. LSU doesn't have a talent problem so I don't really think it hurts us to not hire Ogre....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Dumb question...does Kwon, Collins or Hunter reconsider? - denvertiger on 1/13/15 at 6:21 pm|
Kwon probably should. A year w/ Steele might actually do him some good....

[quote] Brick leaves for A&M and Miles hires Coach O? [/quote]
Steele w/ O on Les Miles staff...LSU would have the most insanely talented 5-loss teams in the history of college football. Kind of like The U, without the rings....

[quote].I'm willing to give Steele a chance (not that we have a choice)[/quote]
I'm trying to be positive but this took too long for what LSU got in return. Steele's defenses were pretty bad at Clemson. Hope he does better at LSU but he may not be cut out for that position....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Can LSU football ever recover from this? - denvertiger on 1/13/15 at 6:06 pm|
Can LSU [i]ever [/i]recover from this? You're kidding, right? I'm not crazy about the hire but Steele's got a decent pedigree and he is a good recruiter. So there's nothing to recover from. And LSU got over Curly Hallman so just about anything is possible....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Is this Steele hire as bad as the Mal-eveto experiment? - denvertiger on 1/13/15 at 5:57 pm|
It's def not as bad as that. But pretty disappointing that the best LSU could do was a position coach. And not what you'd call an up and comer, either...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Is Steele gonna make $1.3m a year? - denvertiger on 1/13/15 at 5:55 pm|
And a half million dollar raise. Not too shabby....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Steele's LBs stayed killing the whole SEC just saying. - denvertiger on 1/13/15 at 5:54 pm|
I think I could "coach" all of those guys and put a pretty decent product on the field....

Give us a break from this shite. No one knew anything except for Miles, Alleva and a few BOS'ers. Oh, and Nick Saban, who must just be laughing his f'ing arse off right now....

Yeah. Now he gets to go 8-5 only he lives in College Station :yack:...

If LSU pays this guy over $1M a year, Alleva should have his head examined. ...
