[quote]For Those Who are Convinced Les Calls the Plays[/quote]
I don't think he calls the plays. I do think he restricts the playbook to a pre-determined template of down and distance options from which the OC can choose from.
And he, as most coaches do, reserves the right to overrule calls, w...

Much better comparison IMHO. Herb could run significantly better and Jennings can pass better than Herb.

I'm not a big fan of Houston, nor will I probably ever be.
But being anywhere with family, friends and LSU football and it will almost always be a fun and good time.. and this was no exception....
| Tiger Rant|| re: The myth that Wisconsin "stopped running the ball" in the second half - Tiger Ugly on 9/1/14 at 8:21 pm|
IMHO, it's pretty simple. It became obvious they could not effectively throw the ball against us.
We did what anyone would do and put more men in the box, maybe waited a bit longer than we should have, but we did it.
They had two choices. Try to do something everyone saw they could not, pas...

Me too. I'm no fan of Pearl, but the SEC should not be this bad in basketball.
Brash slicksters like Cal and Pearl bring attention. Even bad attention helps.

I would be fine if it turns out that way, but I'd be surprised if it does....
| More Sports Board|| re: Bruce Pearl is setting the standard in SEC basketball - Tiger Ugly on 9/1/14 at 9:56 am|
Pearl will always make a splash at the start.
He can recruit and he can motivate and he can promote.
And he'll get Auburn to the post season, probably faster than most other coaches could.
But long term...let's see how it plays out. I have my doubts....
| Tiger Rant|| re: The fake punt - Tiger Ugly on 9/1/14 at 9:34 am|
I would agree they were not surprised that we ran a fake. Still they did not know what kind of fake we'd run. But they had it defended fairly well...Beckwith just made the play with his inherint athleticism.
We punt right there, I don't think we win. It was a huge play.
| Tiger Rant|| re: 2014 record with Matt Flynn at QB - Tiger Ugly on 8/24/14 at 6:55 pm|
We'd be a legit contender for the title, but I'd qualify that by saying the Senior Matt Flynn.
I was there in Orlando for his first extended play of significance...that Flynn and we'd be about in the same boat we are now.

I tend to agree. Though as mentioned below he seemed to be coming around of late.
I can remember watching a replay of the 2007 Arkansas game and thinking he should not have been in there. He just wasn't anywher...

I think it will definitely help, but the issues were much deeper than just our size on defense last year IMHO.
I'm hoping Musselman helps with those other issues and the combination leads to a dramatic defensive improvement....
