Question: If we went 14-0 this season, Would Kevin Steele be our DC? If you don't think 8-5 had something to do with it, you aren't being honest with yourself. ...

Nobody said we are settling for mediocrity. We are saying at this point in the program we are at a crossroads. Expecting a grand slam hire was not realistic. Sorry....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why Steele is a Good Hire - LeagueCityTiger on 1/14/15 at 12:35 pm|
There is a reason we didn't hire a premier DC. You can explain it away as a screw up on Alleva's part all you want but I think its a farce. There is obvious dissent. Our DC left for a reason. 8-5 programs that struggle on Offense to move the ball are not attractive to potential DCs. ...

Thats exactly why we had all the stud DCs lining up to take the job, right? Its also why our current DC left because of everything you just listed. Moron....

I think it's time the fan base is honest with itself. We are coming off a 8-5 season and the program is on a slight downturn. The bottom-line is the DC position is not as attractive at this point as it once was. The best way to get us back in the perennial 10-win season standard when the premie...

"Harris is a better quarterback than Jennings, which is why our fans should just be patient. It will happen."
Just like it did with Lee and Jefferson, right? There is a history of ineptitude when it comes to making decisions regarding the QB. In Brandon's situation if he feels he is gonna sit f...

I think the spread has to do more with the fact that this game is:
1) In Tiger Stadium
2) This game is almost always close
3) LSU is coming off an impressive performance
I think right now you can say without hesitation that the Ole Miss program is trending upward. They have done an excellen...

Starting a QB that isn't as good as the freshman QB is even riskier

He could play. Like I said at some point he got smoked and packed in.

Lol. I check TD about once every 3 months. It has a tendency to irritate me and make me dumber all at the same time. Yes, Jarred Mitchell has underachieved but he is not too old by any stretch of the imagination. If he figures it out he has a legitimate shot at sticking in the bigs....

So apparently assistant football coach is part of the job. Playing summer baseball past June is another issue. Not sure how Simoneaux fits into that criteria lol. When was the last time he stepped foot on a football field as a coach?...

Not so much at AAA, but he is close to having to figure it out. If he was still at AA or below then absolutely. Several guys get the call from AAA between 25-30. As a prospect, he gets an extra year or two. With that ...
