re: Was anyone else listening last night to Mainieri's post game radio show? - Fabius
[quote]Stevenson is hitting about 70 points higher than Laird. I'm going to assume that the Tennessee manager knew that, and I'm going to assume that Mainieri assumed that, too. If the Tennessee manager had pitched to a .370 hitter with the potential winning run on 2nd base and first base open, ...

re: Video of LSU quarterbacks throwing today - Fabius
They still haven't fixed Jennings throwing motion. Lousy mechanics. The overthrows on long passes weren't just rust. He needs work. Harris has a quick, compact motion but a low release point. On short passes he could get balls batted down at the line, but his mechanice look like they would ho...

re: CPM pulls Nola with no-no going..... - Fabius
It's a long season, Nola is our ace and if he's pitching that well then all the more reason to protect him and save his arm for the long haul. We need him throwing shutouts into the seventh inning every Friday if he can. I agree with Manieri pulling Nola and I hope that he is im a position to ...

re: Harris vs Mett, Are their arm skills alike ? - Fabius
QB needs more than just a strong arm. Need to read the defense, anticipate where the open receiver will be, make a proper drop with correct footwork, set feet and release on time and put the ball in the right spot at the right time. Also, need to be able to feel the rush, move in the pocket to buy...

re: Miles, Richt, Brown, Muschamp and Stoops - Fabius
Lots of misinformation coming out in this thread, so a few comments. Saban took over an LSU program that went 3-8 the year before and saw average home attendance drop to 56,000 per game. Businesses around LSU were suffering because of lack of enthusiasm for LSU football. In Saban's second yea...

re: What will it take to get LSU out of this funk - Fabius
This won't be fixed by getting the team out of a "funk." The only team that we've beaten so far that has less than 3 losses is Auburn. We've lost to two teams that have three losses despite beating us. This year's team just isn't that good. Miles hasn't had a top five recruiting class in a whi...

[quote]Haven't Chip Kelly's and Jimbo Fisher's teams been good but fallen short year after year? You do realize their success doesn't hold a candle to what Miles has done right?

Miles, Richt, Brown, Muschamp and Stoops - Fabius
There has been lots of rancor on these message boards between those who criticize LSU's performance under Miles and those who will defend Miles to the death because of his record. For those who defend Miles, let me give you the perspective of someone who thinks that LSU deserves better than Mil...

re: Butthurt LSU football fans - Fabius
Dinardo and Hallman weren't getting paid $4 million a year. They didn't inherit a national championship team stacked with elite talent. They didn't have the facilities or budget that Miles has. And, both were smart enough to call a timeout with 30 seconds left, which isn't saying much because Hal...

re: Does Mett's success change the way you look at Lee and Jefferson? - Fabius
[quote]Mett was going to be better this year regardless. Cam has been awesome but last year was Mett's first year as a starter in the SEC. There were going to be growing pains.

re: Does Mett's success change the way you look at Lee and Jefferson? - Fabius
Last year Mett showed a better arm than JJ or JL, but was plagued with the same types of problems that we saw in prior years - inconsistency, some confusion, receivers never seem to be open, no offensive identity. The turnaround so far this year tells me that coaching was the problem before. I...

re: There shouldn't be much concern over LSU beating a mediocre TCU team by 10 - Fabius
The TCU game and the second quarter of the UAB game served to expose weaknesses in our defense. Our secondary is ordinary and our LB play needs improvement. Hopefully, Chief has the fixes in the works and ready to go before Auburn. TCU losing tonight just confirms that the weaknesses aren't b...

re: One or more Heisman QB's in the next four years? - Fabius
It's only been two games and the only thing that Jennings has done of note is fumble his first snap. I'm very encouraged by Mett's development and by the fact that we're passing from running formations and vice-versa. All encouraging signs. Let's enjoy the moment and not start setting unrealistic...

re: Hey look, another shutout in TD Ameritrade Park - Fabius
Some of the arguments about the ballpark don't make sense. A bigger park means a bigger outfield (the infield size doesn't change) so the outfielders have more ground to cover. More ground to cover means bigger gaps and more opportunities for well hit balls to find a gap. Playing shallow in a b...

re: For those that played baseball, help me out with this statement - Fabius
Very astute Purple. I suppose that you think that chasing the high heat is sound batting technique and bunting is an unnecessary skill. The reason I quoted a "basic" hitting manual is because the principles are basic. There is no mystery to hitting fundamentals. Did you ever play the game?...

re: For those that played baseball, help me out with this statement - Fabius
Manieri's statement, to anyone who knows anything about baseball, is an admission that his hitters have not been properly trained. This, from a basic hitting instruction manual: [quote] Avoid the high heat. The fast ball, high in the zone, looks like a meatball coming to the plate. The problem ...

re: So if we are going to pin the 2-n-Q on Mainieri - Fabius
Individual failures are on the player, team failures are on the coach. This year, the entire team "slumped" at the plate in the CWS, so the failure was bigger than a single error or a single player having a bad weekend. The coaching staff didn't have them ready for what they faced in Omaha, be it ...
