Can we toss out the Crystal Ball nonsense? 24/7 had 60+% to Auburn, then Alabama and Georgia at just under 20% each, then LSU at 4%.

Just thought it would be fun to hang out with a few hundred recruiting geeks like me and talk about whether BeBe did enough to get CeCe's signature....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: I'm always fascinated by the discrepancy some of these sites have with prospects - Tigerpaul1969 on 1/29/15 at 9:47 am|
I just came to the board to post this exact point. Just to confuse things even further, Scout and ESPN have him right in between, as a 4-star and No. 6/7 at his position. He is in the Top 100 in ESPN's and Scout's rankings....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Who's going to the Bash? - Tigerpaul1969 on 1/29/15 at 8:02 am|
I've never been and am thinking of making the drive from Houston this year. This will probably be my only chance to attend for a long time.
Do I just show up and buy tickets at the door? There is a paucity of information available on the web....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Iman Marshall tease - Tigerpaul1969 on 1/28/15 at 3:02 pm|
OK. One thing I find interesting is that his final OV this weekend is listed on Rivals as being Oregon. If that's the case, then we are the last OV for one of his finalists....

As Apollo Creed says at the end of Rocky III, "DING DING."
Another side note, the Wikipedia entry for Rondell Mealey states that he works at Marathon and the source it cites is none other than Tiger Droppings....
| Tiger Rant|| Guess the national championship coach - Tigerpaul1969 on 1/23/15 at 2:11 pm|
Who's that coach on the Notre Dame sideline in the 1997 Independence Bowl against us starting around 2:46 through around 2:58?
On a side note, I loved this game. Good River Parishes product running wild in this one.

[quote]What has that class accomplished? Not trying to be negative[/quote]
I think we'll see next year. Everyone but Jeremy Hill is still on the team. I mean, think about where we were in 2012 with 1 minute left against Bama in Tiger Stadium. If we can just hold them there, we are probably pla...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| 2012 was an underrated class (at least by Rivals and 24/7) - Tigerpaul1969 on 1/23/15 at 11:20 am|
This class was probably most known for us missing out on Landon Collins, but I would argue that Corey Thompson was a pretty good replacement for him as I don't think Collins was the superstar that the media has portrayed him to be.
Beyond that, just looking at the Rivals ratings, we had no one in...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Do we have a legit shot at Chidi Valentine's? - Tigerpaul1969 on 1/23/15 at 8:29 am|
There was a premium post last night on Scout with a headline that read "2 OTs that visited last weekend no longer considering LSU." I don't have premium access but in checking last week's visitors, the only 2 OTs that visited were him and Weathersby....

Frank and O could make a lethal combo for many years to come. They just have to co-exist....
| Tiger Rant|| re: One of these will be the next head coach at LSU - Tigerpaul1969 on 1/15/15 at 10:26 am|
If anyone on the current staff becomes head coach, I believe it would be Frank Wilson. Coach O practically said as much yesterday. Made him sound like a CEO-in-waiting....
| SEC Rant|| re: Can we just talk about how Florida State was completely out of place? - Tigerpaul1969 on 1/13/15 at 8:36 am|
The score against Oregon was lopsided but 5 turnovers will make any game look like that. It's not like FSU was completely outmanned in their game. They were just sloppy and I think Oregon had more intensity, just like OSU brought more intensity last night. It's not only the match up, which is hug...

I don't know if I'd throw Arkansas into this. This has been driven by the Aggies and their belief that they somehow got one over on us because they just hired a 60 year old DC for $1...
