Not surpising at all :banghead:
He just joins the list of players under-utilized during Mile's tenure.
Shep's freshman season, he fumbled in a game against Vanderbilt and he found his way to Les's doghouse. Once there, it's impossible to get out of.
Ask Jarret Lee, Keiland Williams, an...

With 5 years of predominantly mediocre play from the QB position, I question this staff's ability to judge talent for the QB position. Lee was decent for the first half of last season and Mett was terrific against Alabama this year, but on the whole the QB play has been sub-par.
We've won in s...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Would Johnny F'in Fotball be a QB on LSU? - West MonroeTiger fan on 1/4/13 at 7:39 pm|
Don't think he would. LSU seems to favor QB's with more height. QB's 6'1" and under don't stir much interest with this coaching staff. He would probably be swithced to DB or WR. As an aside, he's listed at 6'1" which I find hard to believe.
Stupid. Someone tell Drew Brees he's too short to ...
| Tiger Rant|| Adam Henry, LSU WR Coach-better be a hell of a recruiter - West MonroeTiger fan on 10/21/12 at 6:12 pm|
Because his work with the wide receiver's has been terrible this year. The receivers can't get open, and when they do they drop the ball.
Mett gets a lot of criticism, and yes his pocket awareness isn't good at times.
Mett does hold onto the ball too long, but that's because the receivers...

Mark May just just said he "thought they were impressive the way they (USCe) came back in the 2nd half". Compared Connor Shaw to Willis Reed! :yack:

It goes without saying that LSU is going to win. LSU will see better athletes in practice.
The point is we know we can run the ball. It makes no sense to all sudden tell Zach he has to win a game with his arm against a quality SEC opponent when he hasn't proven he can do it in a game against ...
| Tiger Rant|| N Texas-104th in pass defense last year. - West MonroeTiger fan on 8/30/12 at 4:09 pm|
The secondary gave up 27 TDs with only 9 picks. Replacing all 4 starters from last year which might not be bad considering, but still no experience on the back end.
N Texas's defensive front seven solid by Sunbelt standards with JR middle LB Zach Orr being the best player @ 6-1 230 lbs.

Why Guilbeau? Because he is a Gannett New Service writer which is national in scope. His stuff ends up in USA Today which is owned by Gannett. The reason is a national audience. Everybody else around the country thinks the SEC is dirty so Guilbeau provides a natiowide outlet for PR and that's wh...

Nope. That's what they are paid to do. They ask people questions and they get get answers. You'd like to think they check their sources, but if they get information on a subject of interest, they are gonna run with it. They want readers and if it's unpopular all the better. Controversy sells.

You are not the only ones. Though I hate to buy into anything the national media types say about this program and Tyrann, they did bring up some valid points about Mathieu duplicating the season he had last year.
For one thing, a coach is going to lambasted for punting the ball to Tyrannn so hi...

I'm sad because you don't replace a "playmaker" like Mathieu. Say what you will about his perceived shortcomings, not an elite pro propsect, too short, can't cover, blah blah. The guy made plays that changed games. Period. You don't replace that. A playmaker on def...

On the bench. Same place Shepard was last year and Keiland Williams prior to that. Miles said he would have to get Michael Ford on the field this past week, which in Les speak means, you won't see him again this year. How many times did Les say this about Shepard last year? You get on Les's wron...
