SEC Rant
re: To beat Alabama under Nick Saban, you need an All-American QB, - Thorny
[quote]2011 had nothing to do with QB. LSU had the second best defense of the BCS era after 2011 Bama, so JJ didn't have to be great. [/quote] I will always believe that the LSU 2011 defense was the better one that year, because they did two things Bama's didn't: 1. Face a top-40 offense (Oreg...

re: So are we rooting for OM this weekend? - Thorny
[quote]Where does Miss. State get their 2+ losses? Ole Miss and Bama plus what?[/quote] If Ole Miss and Bama are part of the tie, we only need them to lose two. Without them, we would need Arkansas to knock them off as well. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: Approximation of BCS standings - Thorny
[quote]The reason that matters is because smart people will want to see how the new rankings compare to what the BCS would have said in order to form a well educated opinion on whether or not the new system is in fact better or just different.[/quote] That's true. However, the measuring stick use...

re: The SEC Should Only Send One Team to the Playoff: The Champion - Thorny
[quote]Let me throw this in. People want to hate on Bama just because. Bama has been one game away from going to every BCS championship game 6 of the last 7 Years. So yes. Bama w/Saban should be looked at differently. At least when you are comparing teams with similar records. At least until their...

re: The SEC Should Only Send One Team to the Playoff: The Champion - Thorny
[quote]Actually, nearly every collegiate sport can end up that way. Basketball, Gymnastics, Softball, Baseball etc - all of these have had teams win the national championship without winning their conference championships. UCONN, for example, won the title in basketball last year but failed to win t...

re: The SEC Should Only Send One Team to the Playoff: The Champion - Thorny
[quote]Terrible analogy.[/quote] Why? [quote]I dont want any 3 loss team guaranteed a spot. They are not one of the top 4 teams if they have 3 losses IMo [/quote] That thinking sure wasn't anywhere near the Bama fans who kept talking up the "Giants got a rematch of the Patriots" meme before...

re: The SEC Should Only Send One Team to the Playoff: The Champion - Thorny
I think it should be conference champions only, until it gets to at least 8 teams. You know who goes to the Super Bowl? The NFC [u]Champion[/u] and the AFC [u]Champion[/u]. You know who goes to the World Series? The NL [u]Champion[/u] and the AL [u]Champion[/u]. You know who goes to the NB...

re: This guy puts the icing on the Bama hate - Thorny
[quote]Why would people ever hate an opposing S&C coach? I just don't get it.[/quote] If you were in BDS last year you would get it. He's the very annoying face of all of their "get fired up" Jumbotron videos. It got annoying real quick. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: The LSU Tigers’ Inventive Running Game - Thorny
You can't look at any particular play without the context of the entire offense. To develop a good rushing attack, like we have, a team has to make the defense defend multiple lanes and looks. If we were only to toss when we went outside, then the linebackers would be able to sneak outside as so...

re: Midfield Eye of the tiger. - Thorny
The eye was the standard setup during the Arnsparger, Hallman (except for 1993, when the centennial logo was used) Saban and Miles years. Under Arnsparger, the logo was off center, so that the eye was between the left 45 and the 50. Under Archer, there was a Louisana state outline, so that they ...

re: SI.com story on Dale Brown & Arvydas Sabonis - Thorny
[quote]. . . Brown did not want this exchange to happen quietly.[/quote] Pretty much sums up Brown's entire personality. I was in college when this was happening. Not all of the behind the scenes stuff was revealed at the time, but Brown made no secret of the fact he was after Sabonis. Oh, wha...

re: LSU wins out - could be in a 5 way tie between 2 loss teams with no tiebreaker - Thorny
[quote]Combined record of east opponents played is the tie breaker[/quote] Exactly. And right now, it looks like Auburn would be the winner in that scenario. Here is the tie-breaker scenario as of right now under that scenario: Auburn UGA 4-1 USC 2-3 6-4 LSU FL 2-3 KY 2-2 ...

re: Unreal scenerio but just imagine - Thorny
The last tie-breaker is which team beat the highest finishing team from the SECE. As of right now, that is likely to be Georgia, so Auburn would go. Kentucky would have to beat MSU to get back in the race, breaking the scenario and Mizzou doesn't play any of the listed teams. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: Historical Tiger Stadium/Team Photos. - Thorny
From my time in AFROTC in the 80s, we heard about the P-40 under the stadium as well. During that time, the USS Kidd Museum was expanding and it added a P-40. Somehow, we heard that the one on display was the one under the stadium. Even if that is not true, it's a nice legend. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: Which was your favorite regular season? 03,07,or 11 - Thorny
03. I was visiting the College Football Hall of Fame during that season. They had the helmets of the top 25 displayed hanging from the ceiling. I took a picture of LSUs helmet at #4, since that was the highest ranking in my lifetime. 11 was great too. I wasn't nervous during any of the regular se...

[quote]He gave the speech at my LSU graduation in 1989. Was just a little known governor from Arkansas at the time. [/quote] That was a semester before I graduated. All I remember of it was that it was long and boring. Of course, my graduation was great--no guest speaker FTW. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: So Joe Alleva is no longer guaranteeing that A&M will be a Saturday Night. - Thorny
[quote]To say that LSU dictates the "day" in this case means one day is Thanksgiving, and the other day is Saturday/Friday. [/quote] I understand, but Friday is not Saturday. So that means LSU has either not had the ability to force games on Saturday or they have agreed to put them on Friday. ...

re: So Joe Alleva is no longer guaranteeing that A&M will be a Saturday Night. - Thorny
[quote]Joe Alleva never had the power to guarantee a time for the game. Only the day of the game. [/quote] Here is where the inconsistency lies. Every year since expansion brought Arkansas into the league, LSU originally scheduled that home game for Saturday. In about 15 of the last 17 years, ...

re: Something I took away from the ESPN Gurley article - Thorny
[quote]At the worst they could follow the Manziel precedent for 1/2 game suspension against a non-conference opponent and defer that until next season when he is gone and it will not hurt him. [/quote] Or, they could do the Bama thing and ignore it completely. [img]http://i1237.photobucket.com...
