[quote]Also in the second half the credit for those Hilliard runs should not go to the O-line. If you rewatch those plays it is clear that the reason that Hilliard had such huge holes to run through was due to the linebackers biting on Jennings read and getting out of position.

I tend to agree with your assessment "Manswers". I don't see the situation as being that dire. CL and QT both seem serviceable and we should get them back as starters next year, even more mature as players.
Godchaux certainly seems as if he has great potential, so if we can just find one more gu...

| Tiger Rant|| re: What player surprised you the most in a good way on the field Saturady? - lsuexpert57 on 9/4/14 at 4:32 pm|
Thomas I thought looked pretty good last year so not really a surpise. Since we had never seen Godchaux or Diarse in an actual game they were both pleasant surprises.
As for players we saw last year who were played better than I expected, that would be a tie between Jalen Collins and Jennings. Th...

[quote]All true, but the NFL guys aren't going to watch tape of every LSU game for every player. They go largely on numbers and "check boxes"
Do you really think that the NFL talent evaluators use just "numbers and check boxes" when they are drafting.
You really think they don't wa...

[quote]Yup. Bring back the fade in the red zone. Last one I saw was D Byrd vs Auburn.
Then you don't watch many games. First off, the one to D Byrd wasn't in the red zone. Some notable ones that WERE red zone fades that occurred since the one you mentioned were:

[quote]Does seem like we are loaded up at safety now and a little short at experienced CB depth. Robinson, White, Thomas, Collins, and Holmes are the only CB's currently on the roster that I can think of. Then Paris, Gage, and perhaps Chark will be true freshman CB's.
Its a little conc...

[quote]There should be a rule change of some kind that that the foul in the last minute of the game also comes with a 8 - 10 second run off on the clock.
Actually there was quite a big "rule change" made years back. Once upon a time there was no "double bonus" in either CBB or the NBA. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Do you think JOB, Mickey or Martin try for the NBA next season? - lsuexpert57 on 1/30/14 at 4:58 pm|
My take on it is, if Glen Davis is still pulling a check in the NBA, there is no reason JOB can't make a living there too. JOB compares much more favorably to Big Baby than he does any other recent pro players from LSU....

[quote][quote]If Hill Turner and Collins declare will it be harder for us to overcome the losses on the offensive side of the ball than what we lost last year on defense?
That will depend on how the replacements on offense perform. This years defensive replacements obviously did not per...
| Tiger Rant|| re: RG Trai Turner possibly going pro - lsuexpert57 on 1/3/14 at 6:02 pm|
I think CFB and the NFL are in a transition period brought on by the new CBA. With the new pay scales in place, it has given CFB players more to think about when it comes to their future careers and when is the best time to end their CFB careers.
One thing that HASN'T changed is the number of ope...

I said that in another thread - unless it is "can't miss" talent (e.g. Jeremy Hill) - Les seems gun shy - with Brazil, particularly, being the most recent.
