I thought your analysis was very good, and I appreciated it.
Aside from the "football stuff," I would add this. AJ's first real time playing without the luxury of sitting for a while during more stressful situations was with Arkansas. He really had very little time to contemplate what it meant ...

I really don't know exactly which piece you are referring to, maybe even both, but I didn't see either as very poorly written. I have come to the conclusion that not only do we have the greatest coaches who never touched a football on TD, but now we have to accept the fact that we also have the gre...

Trying to get into the head of a seventeen year old who has been pulled from side to side by well-meaning and not so well-meaning people is very tough to do. This is why I read about recruiting but rarely comment on recruiting. Until a name is signed sometime in February, EVERYTHING is speculation...

Why can't you have both? And if you have the former, maybe you won't have to worry about the latter as often. The word discipline may look narrow in application, but it isn't. Think how you correct your children....

I'm obviously subverting the question, but I think there will be more than two who will stand out throughout the season. I have yet to read anything about lackluster play or performance. I think the addition of Cam Cameron (CC) has energized the team to the point where they can't wait to get on th...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Karl Malone Jr - jcb236 on 2/17/13 at 9:53 am|
Every now and then, usually about every twenty minutes or less, a question or comment comes up that allows people to express an opinion as though it were a hard and fast "fact." Comparing a qb to a basketball player as the greatest athlete is hard to do in my mind. The games and, more importantly,...

One of the things I find interesting when I read TD, and I don't as much as I used to because the threads track the same way, is that no matter how the topic starts off they always seems to hit a plateau at comment five. Invariably the thread becomes hijacked to "let's get rid of Miles." As for fu...

My first game was in 1965 when we beat Tulane 62-0. I was seventeen. I do remember those years sitting in the south end zone starting in 1971 up until now. We won some great games, but we never left the stadium with the great feeling that we were "on our way." Bert Jones sharing playing time was n...

I once heard that men get married with a dream of a nymphomaniac sleeping beside them. In a few years the nympho leaves, but the maniac stays on. Probably why the divorce rate is so high.
This is how I am beginning to see ESPN. I will look at it with the thought I will get some good reporting,...
| Tiger Rant|| The value of an offensive coordinator - jcb236 on 1/1/13 at 10:45 pm|
I never played football, and I do understand the value of an offensive coordinator. What I would like a better understanding of how does this group feel about sharing a position as off. coor. with a position coaching assignment. Does this sharing detract from either? My basic feeling is that it d...

I am not a conspiracy theorist, but I have to wonder sometimes about Alabama's penalties, or the lack thereof. I believed they are disciplined, but nobody is that disciplined. I got a call from my son telling me what everyone else is saying. Alabama moans about a non-call, and the world needs to ...

The 1969 decision to get into a bowl and bummping LSU out is why I hate them, and their OVERWHELMING sense of entitlement orchestrated by the lead conductor, Lou Holtz, makes them even more of "The Team YOu Love to Hate." The game we played up there I think was stolen from us on a few bad calls. A...

Reading the article was OK, but reading some of the comments was too much to stomach.

I think he got what he wanted. He wanted to leave a legacy at Penn State, and he certainly did. He made sure that his efforts to become the winningest coach in college football wouldn't be thwarted by anyone. So when it came to reining him in, no one was big enough to do it. My basic understandi...

Bo Rein was the best coach who never coached, tr...
