This smell something like when Curly Hallman was hired as head coach. It was the Athletic Dept saying " we just want to turn a profit, and that's all. We don't really feel that football is worth our time and we really don't want pay for a top dollar coach. Just don't lose money." I hope its not ...

[quote]Which is why OSU ran the ball all night. [/quote]
Wrong.... OsU ran the ball because they were playing a PAC 12 team that they could control the line against. Don't pass if you don't have to.
oregon slings it during conference play and doesn't play ball control. OSU just punch them in...

When people mention Bama as a measuring stick to compare LSU's current state you hear "but Bama is on a dynastic trend never to be seen again". Now it's " urban is doing what 99% of the other schools can't do".....
It's never Miles' fault..... Never. Meanwhile one of the top 10 football prog...

It's quite possible the guy doesn't want the job or was even offered. What pervious experience does he have running a d1 top tier defense? What if he went into ales' office and patted him on the back and said " go get us a top notch D coach and feel free to come to me for any input". ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Can Cam develop a Dual Threat QB? - TigerB8 on 1/11/15 at 4:35 pm|
I think the question that should be answered is can they (LSU coaches) identify a QB talent in highs school that can develop as a div 1 QB. Then, can they convince him to come to LSU. I'm not convinced they can evaluate and recruit QBs successfully. UGA usually has a couple five stars at a time o...

Yeah, wouldn't want him. UGA's defenses are what usually costs them every season a couple of loses and Grantham was part of that. I feel UGA has access to the same level of talent LSU has yet he (Grantham) was really underwhelming....

Because LSU runs a shite ton, that's where the difference was made up.
