re: Hokie Gajan, beloved former Saints & LSU player, dies at 56 - dimet
Hokie was a great athlete coming out of Baker. I played against him in high school and later at LSU. I remember seeing as an equal to both Leroid Jones, a 9.5, and LeRoyal Jones, 24 foot LJ'er in HS. Baker was LOADED that year with the Jones' brothers, Hokie, Tremaine Johnson and Terry Davis. Studs ...

re: Still looking after all these years, any tape of end of 1984 Tulane game fight? - dimet
It was on the kicking reel of the game film. Offense, defense and kicking reel were the film watched at the time. It was sent to a former coach who had moved to the pros when Coach Arnsparger was hired. I wonder if he still has it! I'm certain LSU has it in their archives. Shawn Burks and Darryl Day...

re: Serious Question for LSU fans - dimet
3 man surface with the Sam backer providing the 4th rusher. Loved man coverage which caused some issues with LB coverage. DLineman read the run on the way to the QB. Seemed much more prone to man coverages than zone...maybe because his CB's could run......

Coaching Changes
re: Ruffin McNeill out at East Carolina - dimet
Great guy...his staff did more to develop 1 and 2 star players than any staff in NC. Great recruiter and a man that wanted, truly wanted, to be at ECU. He lost his starting QB the 1st week of summer camp and played the rest of the year with a 2 completely non-descript QB's running his offense. Linco...

re: 30 for 30: Bo Rein..."The Bo you don't know " LSU Football coach for 42 days. - dimet
Coach Stovall retained every one of Coach Rein's assistants. That staff remained intact for the first 2 years of Coach Stovall's tenure until Greg Williams, the DC, Bobby Morrison, the LB coach and Bob Gatling, the OC, were dismissed following the 1981 season. During the 1981 season, Coach Stovall h...

re: Success Academy (NYC Charter School) doing WORK - dimet
Public schools are being asked to become the Swiss Army knife of society. Politicians, from both sides, have incentivized the programs or courses of study or areas of concentration only to have it fall out of favor next year. With this change comes more money down the tubes, more children left stagn...

re: RIP Bill Arnsparger - dimet
Very simply put, Coach Arnsparger was a genius. Tactical adjustments, personnel utilization and nuances made him better than anyone he faced. Having some experience with him and his staff, I witnessed that Coach Arnsparger was one of the few that could call both sides of the ball during a game. Pret...

re: Raleigh, NC Tigers need advice!!! - dimet
I've been here since '90. If you are a family man, my suggestion is to check out Wake Forest. Good schools and decent access to Raleigh. If a single man, the downtown area is growing with several condos/apt buildings going up with access to the night spots. ...

re: What was Alleva thinking? - dimet
The countdown clock for Coach Miles has begun. I think this Alleva's way of putting CLM on notice...This is a means of slowly eroding CLM's powerbase. A very curious move on Mr. Alleva's part......

re: What Is This Board's Opinion of Springsteen? - dimet
I read/heard an interesting description of the Dylan/Springsteen argument. Penn Jillette stated that "Dylan's lyrics were about him (Dylan) and Springsteen's lyrics were about us." Listen to the albums "Nebraska" or "Tunnel of Love" or "The Ghost Of Tom Joad" to truly hear great writing. "Meeting Ac...

re: Walter Hill has died in Lafayette - dimet
Walter Hill and John Ferguson were such a part of my childhood. Watching Mr. Hill on WBRZ sports or the midday show with Jean Wheeler or listening to him on Saturday nights from Tiger Stadium made growing up in BR a special time. My prayers are with your family...God Bless...

re: What was it like growing up in America in those days - dimet
The zeal of the post war 50's was certainly tarnished by the assassinations of JFK, MLK,Jr., RFK, the horrid realities of the Viet Nam war, and the inabilities for our laws to recognize the black man as the white man's equal directly led to the negative change in the 60's. Look at the disparity in s...

re: I've been diagnosed with glioblastoma - dimet
My oldest brother passed away from glioblastoma multiforme in 2012. He battled it for 13 months. His desire to live was an amazing, inspiring thing to witness. This disease stripped away the facade of the lives we live everyday. It exposed what is truly vital and important in our lives. You've chose...

re: A thought concerning the defensive scheme... - dimet
If you go 0 or 1, man coverage, you are under the assumption that your guys are better than their guys. If a spread offense sees you in man, motions and stacked formations and bunch formations come into play. This is even more complicated for the secondary because assignments change based on formati...

re: How would Bo Rein have done? - dimet
Please note that every coach on Coach Stovall's staff his first 2 years were Bo Rein guys. Coach Nix joined the staff in year 2 of Coach Stovall's tenure as an OL coach while Mac Brown replaced Bob Gatling as OC and Coach Nix replaced Greg Williams as DC before year 3. Rein was a split backfield ve...
