[quote]it appears that Robinson’s suspension is related to academics, as I’ve stated before. According to this report, sources close to LSU said Robinson petitioned school officials to stay in school and on the team, and that he must complete a set of requirements to be allowed back in 2015.

It's been said, eleventy billion times, that it doesn't benefit LSU in any way when bama does well.
Not that what I do has any bearing on the outcome of a game, but I will vehemently root against them in all endeavors.
ANY other team is a distant 2nd on the "hate list"

It's possible. Although unlikely. Fournette is in position to become our best freshman back ever, and that's behind two, 4 year, RBs. He's special and will only get better. But Guice's talents may translate better initially (less br...

We're favored in like 90 percent of our games. So by that logic, they're almost all "lose/lose".
A bowl win is a plus
a win over Notre Dame is a plus.
A loss is a negative

That's relatively interesting, but I don't trust stats anymore..
Since 2006 we have a 15 point (rounded up) average margin of victory.
We also average 3 losses (rounded up from 2.88) a year....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Which unit is more talented in '15, WR or RB? - tgerb8 on 12/10/14 at 1:02 pm|
Dupre, Quinn, and Dural pose more of a matchup challenge than ANY single running back would, but since we can't really get them the ball.........
Talent Wise (if current commits stick)..
Fournette, Guice, Brossette, and Williams has got to be the best RB group in the country.
