| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Minnesota governor wants Peterson suspended..... - Scoob on 9/16/14 at 5:17 pm|
Serious question: didn't the NFL declare serious allegations of domestic violence would bring an automatic 6 game suspension? I would rather focus on the actual game (not the outside issues), but I thought the statement was accusation, not conviction.
Doesn't beating a 4 yr old to the point of l...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Defensive giving up 80 yd scoring drives - Scoob on 9/16/14 at 5:05 pm|
The key issue is the loss of Jabari Greer. If both corners were solid, we'd be 2-0 after some competitive road games, and ready to roll in the dome. Not to say we're anywhere near dominant, but we're SO close to 2-0 (just stop a drive in each game). ...

[quote]What is the best case scenario for your team... (Serious Inquiries Only)[/quote]For LSU- a national championship. Not as far-fetched as it may seem; the team is young but Alabama isn't as good as they have been, and the game is in Tiger Stadium this year. Our defense seems to handle A&M bette...
| SEC Rant|| re: Is the playoff going to hurt the SEC? - Scoob on 9/15/14 at 9:12 pm|
In general, in any given year:
Notre Dame is a lock anytime they finish with 1 loss.
SEC is good as long as Alabama, LSU, or Auburn emerge. Probably A&M, Georgia, South Carolina or Florida. Arkansas and Tennessee are strong maybes. After that, gets real iffy.
ACC is safe as long as Florida...
| SEC Rant|| re: bulls and bears, after three games who are you buying and selling? - Scoob on 9/15/14 at 8:50 pm|
Buy- Mizzou. It's amazing that they are an afterthought 1 year after winning the East, and now it looks like all the other teams in that division are vulnerable
Sell- Florida, Miss St, A&M. Reality is about to hit the Gators right in the mouth, I think State will wilt vs the West, and I just thin...

[quote]Is LSU a better team for having played Wisconsin?[/quote]Yep, a far better team. You really couldn't ask for a better scenario, honestly.
If we skated by a bunch of cupcakes to start this season, we'd likely see a lot of sloppy mistakes that the talent would overcome. Miles would have a ha...

| SEC Rant|| re: Do most of us root SEC across the board? - Scoob on 9/7/14 at 9:42 pm|
Usually. I'm a big LSU fan, and we've learned over the past decade plus that strength of schedule makes a difference. I think the choice in 2003 between LSU and USC came down to the outcome of a WAC game; "our" team won and we went to the BCS. Had the other team won, USC would have.

Thought this thread was about YOUR OWN team; yet 2 A&M posts about LSU already :lol:
I'm a little concerned about center- we finished with the 3rd team guy yesterday. Porter's suspension should end soon, and I hope Pocic isn't hurt bad.
Kinda worried about Fournette's mindset; I wish he would...

[quote]So what kind of work as he doing and what was he getting paid?[/quote]Don't know. Somebody here said he was getting $15 an hour, which isn't much.

Anyone who's ever heard his show knows it's basically Jerry Springer on football.
Like another poster said, it's doing irreparable damage to the SEC image. If that's all they have to put on the network, I'd rather they drop the network itself, and just keep extra channels available for the games...

LSU likely still wins.
What hasn't been mentioned- it seemed like we got a 1st down and were beginning to move [i]before[/i] the first injury. That killed our momentum, gave Wisconsin time to regroup, and gave them a little bit of a boost (play harder for the guy they carted off, etc). We might ha...

Yeah, as an outsider (LSU fan) I think it does.
No matter how chaotic a Manziel highlight film might be, you could always point to his production. He put up a lot of numbers on SEC competition (LSU excluded), and that gave the impression that A&M rode Manziel to victories and potent offensive st...

This just HAS to be a troll.
I can't imagine a team in a worse position than Sam Houston is in. Seriously, Les Miles is probably gleeful right now. Instead of having to find a way to motivate his team, he has a ton of players (O-line, running backs minus Hilliard, defensive front 7) who are angry...

He's a good player for y'all, but even if we landed him he isn't a 34 backer.[/quote]On Bama's defense, probably a strong safety, with Collins at free. Murderous run defense that would be, trouble vs passing teams. But t...
