re: Keep an eye on Tennessee's Hoops Coaching Search - Alt26
Well, there were many here who think Jones needs a "x's and o's" coach on the bench. Charlie Leonard isn't going anywhere, and neither is Patrick as long as LSU still wants Ben Simmons. So if Jones wants that coveted bench coach then McCray would have to be the odd man out. FWIW, if McCray were t...

re: Is 2014 football a "rebuilding" year? - Alt26
You'll get a lot of negative responses, but I don't think anything you're saying is off-base. LSU's D-line was as bad as they have been for a while, and I don't think it was a coincidence that the defense as a whole struggled for the first time in 4 years. I'm optimistic that the front 7 will be i...

re: Anyone still thinking Harris will be 2nd string game 1? - Alt26
IMO, Jennings will be the starter vs. Wisconsin. The spring game is a very, very small sample for fans to make such "finite" judgments on, but it happens every year. In Harris I saw a guy who wasn't asked to do a whole lot of "thinking" in the spring. You could tell that he generally had one ...

re: Finally got to watch the Spring Game video ref QBs - Alt26
It's funny how so many "scouts" here can watch the same video, yet see things completely differently. I think a lot of people went into the spring game critical of Jennings because of the bowl game performance. Thus, they were looking for the "bad" as opposed to the good. Conversely, everybody lo...

No. While it might be popular initially, it would quickly turn into just another subsidy for the "poor".

re: Talked to Hickey tonight about next year - Alt26
Good to hear. The numbers mean that LSU has to have some attrition on their roster (at minimum one more guy. Hopefully not Mickey), so there was a bit of a question as to if Hickey was/is returning. If Mickey comes back LSU should be able to athletically compete with any team in the SEC, includin...

I agree. A group of people who don't watch the majority of the teams that play from week to week along with a bunch of nerds should just subjectively select the two "best" teams with no rhyme or reason to play for a championship. The other 70 teams with winning records should just play meaningless e...

re: BOLD PREDICTION: LSU will be an Auburn (run heavy) offense, but more balanced - Alt26
LSU's offense will mostly be the same as it was when Jordan Jefferson was QB. That is mostly run oriented. I think Jennings will probably be a better passer than Jefferson, so the passing game under Jennings will be better than it was under Jefferson. However, the coaching staff is not going to put...
