| Tiger Rant|| re: Reasons for Optimism in 2015 (Not for the Faint of Heart) - tgerb8 on 2/18/15 at 12:35 am|
I see 5 main reasons to be excited for 2015.
1. Returning Players. We weren't decimated by early departures, and return the vast majority of starters.(I think it's like 15 of 22).
2. The DL. Coach O (+ Valentine and perhaps Arden Key) will vastly improve our pass rush and sack count
3. QB issue. ...

While I agree that Les isn't doing badly (by any means), there is a fine line between winning and losing.
I hate bringing up bama.. but
Since 2008 Bama has lost only 4 out of the top 24 in state players.
We've lost twice as many (8 of 24) in the same amount of time with no serious in state th...

[quote]Legit gripe. Lsu was offsides on that play[/quote]
Perhaps legit.. but about as meaningful as saying that the wide receiver "trapped" that 3rd and long catch and there was no personal foul at the goal line.. against bama.

He's gonna be good. I know the tone around here was shifting towards "Shea is better", but Franks has a higher ceiling in my opinion. He's Perriloux, Kiel, and Zack Lee good. He'll be the missing piece in an extremely "close to complete" puzzle....

[quote]How are we "loaded" without legitimate pass rushers?[/quote]
because we return 8 out of 11 to the #1 SEC defense? plus Valentine and Arden Key with Coach O to boost the pass rush. Not to mention Dwayne Thomas will be back as a probable starter. KTII will be a "second string" option that w...

If Patterson leaves, so be it. There's not much we can do about it. It was obviously a family decision since OM doesn't exactly shoot QB's into the NFL. And it's f'n Oxford Mississippi.
I'd rather have him than not, but we'll be OK. a single recruit doesn't make or break a class, let alone a team.

There is a big difference between having average results and having an average team. With Beckwith at MLB against State, I'm calling win. If 1 of a thousand things doesn'...

and the future is still super f'n bright at LSU.

[quote]Can't wait to see what they do with a year to work these recruits. Do we get Key without those two?[/quote]
We're stacked at skill positions and CB. Selling LB and DL to recruits shouldn't be difficult for LSU, but it kind of has been recently. O and Steele definitely bring a huge boost.
