| SEC Rant|| re: Is Alabama really a dynasty?? - Scoob on 5/15/13 at 10:10 am|
Slightly off the topic; who's likely the next team to further the SEC? LSU and Florida together pushed the conference to the top in the 2000's; 4 titles between them, and when 1 was down the other stepped up.
Alabama recently joined that rotation. Arkansas pushed to, but flamed out. Will Georgia o...

[quote]My point was that bama only won the SEC title 2 times in 4 years and people are screaming dynasty. 2 out of 4 is hardly a dynasty.
okay, thats cool. But like I asked of the OP previously, what are your qualifactions of a dynasty? is it only conference championships?

| SEC Rant|| re: Is Alabama really a dynasty?? - Scoob on 5/15/13 at 1:09 am|
Random opinion here-
current Bama run is not quite a "dynasty" yet.
Why not? No clear separation from the other contenders in the conference (LSU, Fla) for an extended period of time... not yet.
SEC dominance is actually hurting Bama in this. The conference has a string of titles going, and a...

historically, the 4 schools in question are LSU, Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina.
Bama's been elite.
LSU had long stretches of being very good.
Florida had occasional periods of being good.
South Carolina was an also-ran.
Without Saban, Alabama and LSU might still have revived, alt...

I forget the name of this movie, but there was some flick from the 70's where there was a single mother and her kid in a house at night, during a storm/power outage.

| Tiger Rant|| re: What Were Your Thoughts on the Saban Hire vs. the Miles Hire? - Scoob on 5/8/13 at 10:48 pm|
Saban- cautious optimism; like others have noted, Dinardo stopped the trend of LSU sliding into an Ole Miss level of obscurity, and I hoped that Saban would pull us back into an 8-win level of respectability (like Dinardo's earlier years).
That's all any of us could hope for- 8 wins, an occasion...

The Exorcist has to be tops on this list. That was an extremely disturbing movie to watch.

Boise- decent, scrappy mid-major who plays one legit team a year, and turns that into a top 10 ranking most of the time.
This doesn't mean they suck, I just think they're maybe somewhere in the bottom of the top 25.

Honestly, I would have liked to see Jordan Jefferson worked at the slot and/or H-back in 2011, with Lee still at QB. He was slow for LSU WR standards, but he was pretty big, good in space with the ball, had game experience (something the Tigers lacked at WR that season).
Would have given Lee a bi...
