| Coaching Changes|| re: ESPN just suggested Les Miles potential candidate to Texas - GOP_Tiger on 12/10/13 at 10:12 pm|
Yes. Les is a good guy. Can you even imagine Les throwing his players under the bus the way Saban did with "We told them to cover the kick."?
I like Les and want him at LSU for another 5 years or so, until he's ready to retire. ...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Speedy Noil - SI summary article - GOP_Tiger on 12/9/13 at 5:58 pm|
In the slot and put him in motion every time. If you hand him the ball, he'll get to the edge. If you don't give it to him, he keeps the defense honest, opening bigger holes up the middle for out RBs and becoming a threat in the passing game....

In general, LE, I would agree, but I would also say that Ridley and Hester actually were showcased in their senior years, and they were the both drafted in the 3rd round, so they were certainly noticed....

[quote]What about Fehoko Fanaika? I watched him in the Big Cat Drill, and he absolutely destroyed someone. Can he not pass block? [/quote]
Right now, I think he's too fat and slow. Our run game needs guards who are athletic enough to pull, lead a RB through a hole, and then stick a block on a LB...

Hester was actually very fast. This misconception comes up again and again when he is discussed. What he lacked was quickness -- lateral movement and elusiveness. ...

| SEC Rant|| re: How many coaching mistakes did Saban make yesterday? - GOP_Tiger on 12/1/13 at 2:33 pm|
The biggest coaching mistake of the game was in failing to prepare the kicking team for a possible return.
If I were Saban, I would be firing my Special Teams Coordinator right now. Even if Saban wasn't thinking about the possibility of a return, it's absurd that no one on the sideline thought a...

Well, he started the game with two very aggressive drives to the basket. Unfortunately, he was called for offensive fouls on both of them. So, I don't think I am going to be able to agree with that. ...
