| SEC Rant|| re: Predict the year Saban retires. - LSU GrandDad on 12/26/14 at 9:02 am|
I don't want him to retire, ever. I want him to lose the fire in his belly yet continue to enjoy his power position so much that he stays at bama forever. gets into the 6 or 7 win per year thing like jopa and Bowden did but no one can fire him so bama drifts into mediocrity AGAIN.
damn, I just r...

| SEC Rant|| re: Spinoff: When did the SECW Arms Race start? - LSU GrandDad on 12/24/14 at 10:25 am|
the short answer to this is when the SEC started making big bucks. ESPN and CBS began to infuse massive dollars into the league and competition began to boil. LSU and UF both won 2 NC's and Bama got Saban. boom, the other schools began to spend that money on coaches and facilities. it became appeara...
| Coaching Changes|| re: Hmmmm...Chavis signed anything yet? - LSU GrandDad on 12/24/14 at 10:15 am|
imo, he is playing the negotiation game. he is in an excellent position to do so and win. winning is more money and a longer extension.
I think John Chavis is a key to this teams success and the price of DC's has gone up. LSU needs to pony up. I believe they will. ...
