[quote]I still don't buy it. Very few NFL GMs are stupid enough to focus exclusively on measurables. Jalen Collins' production on the field simply does not equate to a high second round pick. [/quote]
There isn't a GM in the nfl that hasn't blown a pick on someone with great measurables. Happens...

That's what happens when you develop a scheme that actually takes advantage of the strength of the players.
Also those teams always recruit to their scheme. LSU doesn't do that for QB's. ...

That would be true in most cases. But in LSU's it's...

Yes. In the last few years salaries have skyrocketed. But LSU's standing in the SEC has fallen.
If you are honest with yourself LSU is in the middle the pack in the secw. We are paying our coaches a lot more than that.
LSU spares no expense for football. ...

I don't get all the fuss over tight ends. For instance, last season who would you like to take touches from? I know if much rather have the ball in Landry, Odell, or Hill's hands. Those dudes are a lot better than anything we have at tight end.
This year I think we needed to concentrate on t...

The oil fall along with most goods was due to the economy slowing down when the sub prime bubble burst.
Today the fall is not due to fall in consumption but due to growth in output.
This time the fall is good for the economy. ...

If Les could develop QB's to be above average he would have multiple BCSNC's.
QB play kept us from winning in 2010 and 2011.
Those two teams should have won it all.
And that's giving him a pass in 2006 when we played big 10 football at Auburn with the likes of Russell, Bowe, Doucet, an...

This playoff was contrived by the media so that they would have more to talk about. Under the BCS the CFB newscasts would be all bama, FSU, and Heisman talk. Now they have a lot of controversy.
That's why rather than accepting that in all systems to determine a champion someone is going to b...

Makes sense. Les needs a rb to bring in to run the short side option again.
If Les had Darren Sproles on this team he wouldn't use him properly. Les has never thrown to the HB out of the backfield, been able to teach the team to properly execute a HB screen pass, or used the toss sweep. A sc...
