You might be right. I guess it's just happenstance that Alabama's recent dominance of the SEC coincides with thier consistently bringing in the top ranked recriuting classes.
Great players generally = great teams. By your logic teams like Indiana should be fighting for a national title year afte...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Basketball-Can we make the tourney with 8 losses? - Alt26 on 1/24/15 at 11:11 am|
I agree, on the surface I would say 11-7 would be good enough, given Tennessee made it in with that record last year.
UT had a very good SOS. That's why they got in at 11-7 (ahead of 12-6 UGA). LSU doesn't have that luxury...

[quote]I understand it as 68 teams are selected to play in the tourney. We are on the bubble to be ranked, last I checked we were around 30ish (receiving votes to be ranked). By that standard, I would say we're in. But then, last year 4 SEC teams were invited to the tourney. I don't know how they'll...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why have a dedicated TEs coach instead of a QB coach? - Alt26 on 1/22/15 at 3:30 pm|
I suspect Ensminger's primary role is recruiting and contributing to the plan and implementation of the overall offense. He has been an OC in the past. He is probably the TE coach more or less in title only. While I'm sure he does help coach the TEs, I doubt that is the main reason he is on staff...

Exactly. Belichick probably didn't even know the balls were deflated nor did he care. The order to deflate, scuff, etc. the footballs ALWAYS comes from the starting QB. He is the only one that cares about the condition of the footbal...

Not exactly true. 3 of those 4 losses have been to three of the better teams in the SEC (@Ark., UGA, @UK). They were in all 3 games. The loss to MSU is the only "bad" one of the bunch.
Stallings is a good coach. He d...

I think the fact that people (especially, but not exclusively the students) don't show up for the games has more to do with that than the seat placement. The seats aren't THAT far from the court

[quote]Meh. I'll give you UGA for A&M but we had no business losing to Mizzou.[/quote]
It's a fine line. LSU had UGA beat in regulation and couldn't make the FTs to put them away. On the flip side, Mizzou had LSU beat in regulation. Hornsby just made a tough 3 to get the game to OT.
