Don't read this if you're stupid... - Buda
Here's something for all you "brilliant" football analysts to chew on: I see all these anti-Les Miles fans out there that say stuff like "If we don't win at least two national champioships with all this talent, then Miles should be fired." So let's break down that logic: First, such a stateme...

Observation about LSU Baseball - Buda
We don't have ANY "scare the crap out of you" hitters any more. Seems like we're full of slap-hitting speed guys. Wasn't long ago when LSU put batter after batter at the plate that intimidated the hell out of pitchers and scared the crap out of the opposing coach. I understand that college ba...

re: Anybody ever get actual info onthe Ego Ferguson "medical issue"? - Buda
I've got people on facebook slamming LSU saying he tested positive for marijuana and then the coaches let all the players wear his number. This pi$$e$ me off. Everyone always wants to assume the worst about LSU football these days. Wants to slam them for a lack of discipline without even having...

Les Miles = Sausage - Buda
I've learned something watching Les Miles and LSU for the last 9 years: With Miles, you have to approach a football game and season like a good sausage - look only at the end product, not what it looked like as it was being made. Every year and every game, he does things that make any knowledgea...

re: Clock and Helmet issue at the end of the first half - Buda
This is the key part of the rule, as noted by a poster above: [quote]b. When the helmet coming off is the only reason for stopping the clock, the following conditions apply: 1. With one minute or more remaining in either half the play clock will be set at 25 seconds if the player is on offense an...

Clock and Helmet issue at the end of the first half - Buda
Ok, here it is: If a player loses his helmet during a play, he must come out the game or the team must call a time out - unless there is a clock stoppage anyway (like out of bounds or incomplete pass) in which case he can play the next play without having to take a timeout. Also, if the ref dete...

[quote]I would be a much, much happier man if Les remained head coach but simply gave up any say whatsoever during the actual game. [/quote] First off, that's a ridiculous statement. Second, all you said about his in-game decision making is true - although I wouldn't call him "terrible." B...

re: I love ranters... - Buda
So, just to prove my point... There's a post on here about Skip Bertman agreeing with the decision to let Rhymes hit away. He explains why - and Todd Walker agrees. So we have Skip Bertman, maybe the best college baseball coach ever, agreeing with Manieri, a pretty damn good coach. But we ...

re: Here's one that bugs me in baseball... - Buda
I understand all your points. I just believe in being agressive instead of hoping for ball 4. Espcially with 2 outs, a runner on second, and a talented hitter at the plate. Walk doesn't score the run, base hit does. And I cocur with the guys who said: Sure take the pitch but at least look like...

re: Here's one that bugs me in baseball... - Buda
For example, Jones' last at bat. He's up 3-0. He puts the bat on his shoulder and the pitcher knows he won't swing, so he throws a meatball - strike! Now it's 3-1. Next pitch is a strike and now it's 3-2 and Jones has to swing at the third pitch (tough pitch to hit) to protect the plate. Why wa...

Here's one that bugs me in baseball... - Buda
I know most will not agree, but I do not and never will understand why hitters don't have the green light on 3-0. The pitcher is bearing down to throw a strike and he's not trying to go low or outside. That ball is coming right down the pike. I'm not saying full swing away - tell batters to swi...

Football - but here's a thought: There are only 3 or 4 schools all time with NC in Football, Baseball, Basketball, and Track (for people my age these are the only real sports). LSU has three of the 4 - several times over - except basketball. It'd be nice to fill up the quartet....

Well, as usual, about 95% of the people on this board missed the point. I understand fully why each of the players made the desions he made. And I agree - if I could make a few hundred thousand or a few million dollars next year, I certainly would. So I wasn't asking you guys for your opinion...

Miles should come out and address the departures - Buda
He needs to have a press conference and explain why/how this is happening and what he plans to do to keep this from happening every year. Every big-time program has juniors that can come out. And many top-level juniors come out every year. But to have virtually an entire senior class abandon ...

I know we're not necessarily in the market for a new OC. And this is just an off-the-cuff idea, but... Mario Cristobal just got released as the HC at FIU. His offenses were always creative. He is a young and energetic former QB and offensive-minded coach. he is especially good with QBs. ...
