| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: We all badly want Fournette to come to LSU, but why do people assume he will? - rjokerlsu on 12/6/13 at 6:00 pm|
I hope LSU lets Frank realize how much he is appreciated. I know he is well paid, but I would hope that someday in the future he might even get consideration for the position of offensive coordinator.
Before you sneer at this idea, recall that he was a very successful head coach in New Orleans, ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Offensive staff changes forth coming? - rjokerlsu on 12/6/13 at 10:35 am|
That was a solid response by Fore. I can't believe the previous poster was serious--Sale not ready to be LSU line coach in his view. Not only is Sale definitely qualified, he should easily be an improvement over Stud. And for that matter, Kevin Mawae would also be an upgrade as OL coach....

Often, these are like the famous last words. Remember when Saban himself said, "I won't be the next head coach at Alabama?"...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Darrell Williams - 2014 RB/ATH (Decommits from ASU) - rjokerlsu on 12/5/13 at 5:53 pm|
Is Tennesee trying to sign about 50 players? I think they have over 30 commitments, and don't see how that many could be back-counted to 2012.
Perhaps some don't qualify academically....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Predict the rest of this class, AND when they commit - rjokerlsu on 12/5/13 at 5:52 pm|
No chance for E. Hernandez, or any other OL?...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Prayers and thoughts out to Deondre Clark & Family - rjokerlsu on 12/5/13 at 5:46 pm|
Even though he was an early commitment to LSU, I figured OU would continue recruiting him and make a spirited effort to flip him, even before I knew of his mother's health situation.
This will be interesting to see if LSU can hang on. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Cam coach in waiting.......nola.com speculation - rjokerlsu on 12/5/13 at 5:37 pm|
Yes, I thought about Jimbo Fisher and how the coach in waiting title did mean something to him.
But it often does not come to fruition--for example, Will Musberger, at Texas. Maybe some Florida fans wish that had become a reality....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Suspended LSU running back Jeryl Brazil in trouble with the law… again - rjokerlsu on 12/5/13 at 5:28 pm|
What a case of wasted talent--he was a tremendous track athlete at Loranger in addition to a talented football player with incredible speed.
I don't believe he'll ever return to the LSU football team and a change of scenery seems like the only possible answer. Hope the light comes on, so that Je...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Weekend Visitor List - constantly updating - rjokerlsu on 12/5/13 at 12:30 am|
Would be nice to have a shot at CJ. But it seems like Adams has become a prime target at safety & it's all about him at the moment....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Tiger Bash update? - rjokerlsu on 12/4/13 at 11:56 pm|
Does anyone know for sure if is just for high ranking contributors? If so, what horrible timing with this class expected to be one of the best ever. I had been looking forward to going--had not attended since 2011....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: We still need some d-linemen - rjokerlsu on 12/4/13 at 9:54 pm|
Sometimes it takes linemen a bit longer to develop than players at other positions. I would not give up on Gilmore, Bain and Herron just yet.
I would be surprised if at least one of them does not emerge this spring as a contributor next fall.
But yes, the d-line needs to be addressed with on...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Fournette gave verbal to LSU...Wut? - rjokerlsu on 12/4/13 at 9:49 pm|
Well, there are possibilities of other commitments on the defensive side before the All Star Game next month, so the doom & gloom on the recruiting front for LSU should be coming to an end pretty soon.
Most of us have known that the Tigers are in great shape with LF, but it's always nice to make ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Quote from Jimmy Smith chat this morning! - rjokerlsu on 12/3/13 at 12:39 pm|
Hopefully the Tigers will still sign the type of class we are anticipating, getting most of the uncommitted highly ranked LA players playing in the All Star games next month.
I do think it would be interesting if after NSD some of the media would ask Coach Miles how he feels about the impact of s...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Jamal Adams taking official to LSU this weekend - rjokerlsu on 12/3/13 at 9:13 am|
Big Ed--I agree wholeheartedly. Meant to hit positive sign, but I Phone messed up. I blame it for my bad touch....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: The Safety who we Sign - may end up better than Hootie - rjokerlsu on 12/2/13 at 4:34 pm|
Sometimes it's a bit ironic how things work out.
It may very well be that if LSU lands Adams, he could be a better safety than Jones--obviously, we don't know how their college careers will go & if either or both will have injury woes in college.
Also, the defensive backs & athletes currently ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: HOOTIE COMMITS TO BAMA - D'haquille Williams Up Next - rjokerlsu on 12/2/13 at 10:39 am|
Egg, I think you make a great point. I would like to see some tremendous recruiters who are willing to carry their share of the load, something Stud & Ensminger are definitely not doing....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: HOOTIE COMMITS TO BAMA - D'haquille Williams Up Next - rjokerlsu on 12/2/13 at 10:27 am|
Great news about Adams. It seems like many of us anticipated Hootie would commit to Bama, though we hoped he would pick LSU.
I doubt that most analysts rate Hootie above both Paris and Adams.
Also, LSU has Voorhies and Battle, who are top notch prospects as well that could compete for playing...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Would a Hootie commitment to LSU create the biggest Boom in R.B. History??? - rjokerlsu on 12/1/13 at 9:58 pm|
What would be totally awesome is if LSU landed both Hootie and Adams. But at this time, that does not appear likely to happen.
Again, I believe the current group of DB commits are outstanding athletes, with John Battle particularly being very underrated....
| Tiger Rant|| re: So Les Miles goes for a 57 yd field goal... - rjokerlsu on 12/1/13 at 9:49 pm|
I dislike Saban as much as anyone, but I did hear him say on a post-game interview that his decision to attempt that field goal after insisting one second remained on the game clock cost Bama the game....

Hope to see changes on the LSU coaching staff among assistants, but I believe LSU is capable of finding better coaches than Ed O. or Taylor....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: LSU has an in home visit w/Hootie Jones Sunday night - rjokerlsu on 12/1/13 at 3:57 pm|
It seems like Hootie's recruiting saga has been thoroughly analyzed, but I have not seen as much about the role, if any, played by current Tiger & last season's Neville star John Diarse. I would hope Hootie would be more influenced by Diarse than C Rob or C Sims. What are you recruiting gurus he...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Dhaquille Williams - rjokerlsu on 12/1/13 at 1:53 am|
His plans for visits and commitment dates seem a bit puzzling--maybe we'll find out something for sure on Monday.
As others have posted, LSU is in great shape with so many highly ranked receivers, that it won't be disastrous if D. Williams chooses Auburn, though one would wonder if they will try ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Any word on Jamal Adams? - rjokerlsu on 12/1/13 at 1:45 am|
It looks like the Tigers have as good a chance as about any school of landing Adams at this point--regardless of what Hootie Jones decides. It would of course be outstanding to sign both of them.
Also, would hope that the staff's recruiting and coaching ability would be fairly assessed over the ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Is there ANY chance that Miles would have a return guy back in the endzone... - rjokerlsu on 12/1/13 at 12:57 am|
Yes, don't you know that Malzhan copied this idea from Miles?...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Last Drive HAS to be Clutch for recruiting - rjokerlsu on 12/1/13 at 12:53 am|
Another player who has contributed some this season and to me, does not get enough credit, is Dewayne Thomas, who stripped the ball away from the Ark. QB, to help clinch the victory.
I think he has taken advantage of what limited playing time he has received....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: So why do we need a kicker in this class again - rjokerlsu on 12/1/13 at 12:42 am|
I have seen a few posters previously share this same view, that Gamble should be grey-shirted. I think this is a definite possibility--does anyone know if the staff has actually decided to include him in the 2014 class as one of the 25 signees?
There are still some undecided players out there t...

| Tiger Rant|| re: In the future 500,000 people will claim to have been in TS - rjokerlsu on 11/29/13 at 9:36 pm|
Good idea to hold on to the ticket stub.
This is like many thousands (don't know estimated #) that claimed back in the 1959 season, they were at the game in which Billy Cannon made his famous 89-yard game winning punt return vs. Ole Miss, in a contest in which both teams were rated in the top 10 ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: John Battle will be here today - rjokerlsu on 11/29/13 at 12:14 pm|
I think there's a good chance that Battle will become a valuable recruit. I am glad Corey Raymond has stuck with him. Sounds like he is an outstanding athlete who has enjoyed a solid senior season on a high school football team that otherwise is very mediocre. ...

This is Germans--the Joe Pa stuff has already been cussed, discussed & argued. Why do we need to interject Les Miles and the LSU coaching staff into this. One of my old college professors would call this the "fallacy of irrelevance--" no such scandals or allegations have ever come close to being r...
