[quote]Middle of the pac in secw, come on man.. We have one medocre year because of amount of underclassmen leaving early and you call us middle of the pack. We will contend for a NC next year with a 11-1 record, you can put that in the bank. Miles is paid what he is worth. [/quote]

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. ...

Here's a trend. If Les could develop above average to good qb's he'd have 2 more national championships.

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...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why is the media so against the SEC? - baobabtiger on 12/7/14 at 5:09 am|
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...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Missing a Scat back ( Cook from FSU) - baobabtiger on 12/7/14 at 4:57 am|
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...

Who was the last 4 year QB that miles coached that actually significantly got better? From freshman year to senior year?
I can't think of one. ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: The QBs Recruited by Les Miles Improved While at LSU - baobabtiger on 11/14/14 at 11:29 am|
Conveniently forgot yards per game, td's, and Int's. Nice
This is proof that you can make numbers look however you want them to.
I will say this though. Jarrett Lee was doing great till Les squashed the offense by slowly bring Jefferson back into the fold.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Blake Sims Acting Like a Punk - baobabtiger on 11/6/14 at 8:18 pm|
[quote]Cause hes black? [/quote]
bama has a very consistent history of not playing black qbs. Andrew Zow was the last one and that was almost 15 years ago and he didn't start a full season.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why do you think Miles and his staff has trouble developing QBs? - baobabtiger on 10/28/14 at 11:25 am|
We run 3 different offenses and we don't develop well.
Lee, and Jefferson showed no improvement from their freshman to senior years. Right now our current starter is much of the same. ...

If Winston was LSU's QB he probably would be off the team.
But then again if he was LSU's QB he'd be completing just 50% of his passes and average 130 yards a game. So we probably wouldn't care because he'd suck here. ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Is Our Offense Too Complex? - baobabtiger on 10/6/14 at 9:52 pm|
We wonder why our online sucks? They have to learn to block for three different offenses and the are all big road graders. None of then are what I would consider agile zone blockers.
Like the qb's. Les and company have recruited top notch talent to do what they are not good at. ...
