| Coaching Changes|| re: Why did it take so long to hire Steele? - PacWilly on 1/14/15 at 8:31 am|
You don't always get your top choices for personal and/or business reasons, but you have to try. As long as your second options understand your process along the way, it's all cool with the person being hired.
I think we swung and missed on a couple, I think others used us for raises, and some w...

[quote] it's not the QB.. it's the coaching![/quote]
Agree. Chavis is gone so we're good, right? You do realize that 2013's losses had little to do with play calling and everything to do with defense and Mett losing his mind at Ole Miss.
It is all about the QB for LSU. Right now, everythi...
| Tiger Rant|| re: So what is it? What is making this DC search so hard? - PacWilly on 1/8/15 at 9:45 am|
People are underestimating how hard it is to lure a current DC for a lateral move to LSU if their current school matches any potential offer by LSU unless their current situation is toxic. ...

[quote]I don't know why, however I'm willing to bet the departure of Chavis "his reason" is why[/quote]
I agree that there is concern over who would do the "coaching up". I am certainly concerned over that too. I don't believe coaches are turning down LSU over lack of offense. All they have to...

This is just stupid. Les may eventually promote Brick, and, yes, it may not be the ideal hire. However, that is not automatically a failure on Les or Alleva. There are personal matters to consider for any potential hire, including mo...

If Harris "explodes" that means he's at least as good as Mett 2013 so I say we are playing for the SEC championship....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Does anyone think having a talent like Miller or Golson would really - PacWilly on 1/7/15 at 8:10 am|
When we had Mett, we passed the ball too much in my opinion. that tells you what I think.
ETA: I think Miller would be able to run what we are trying to run with Jennings...only he would be much better at it and complete more than 50% of his passes....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Advocate article on Cam Cameron after the bowl game - PacWilly on 1/7/15 at 8:05 am|
Thanks for sharing the link. I didn't know it was out there.
These comments are well received by me. My view is that we have a QB development problem, and that's the OC's responsibility. Miles wants a dynamic offense, but he hasn't had the OC and the QB to pull it off. Last year was very goo...

What makes you think he won't open the QB competition? Just saying...IMO, I agreed with every QB decision Miles has made so far. And, I'd bet I'm not the only one. History proved miles right on Jefferson/lee. Arguably, the only decision that can be questioned would be to start Russell over Flynn...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Will Cameron be on the hot seat with another year like this? - PacWilly on 1/2/15 at 5:20 pm|
Yes, he'll be on the hot seat and he should be. This, plus making sure our OL is hitting on all cylinders from Game 1 will be key. That's on Grimes.
I do not think Les is holding back anything. We were conservative because we couldn't execute the full extent of our playbook this year. I think...
| Tiger Rant|| re: The "Miles clause" talked about in reference to Chief - PacWilly on 1/2/15 at 11:01 am|
Sumlin/A&M were desparate and willing to throw money at JC. LSU was not. I like Chief, but he is not worth guaranteed $1.7M/yr money for that many years. It's a good thing the AD/boosters didn't leave this decision up to Les.
LSU was not willing to overpay considering they are already the high...
| SEC Rant|| re: Bama 2015 offense - returning starters (only 2?) - PacWilly on 1/2/15 at 10:04 am|
I get Henry as the starter over Yeldon (so maybe 3 would be returning), but isn't Vogler the more complete TE considering how much Bama runs the ball?...
| SEC Rant|| Bama 2015 offense - returning starters (only 2?) - PacWilly on 1/2/15 at 9:57 am|
Is it likely Bama only returns 2 starters on offense next year? Robinson and Kelly on the OL
3 WRs or 2 WRs/TE (White, Vogler, Jones + Cooper early)
3 OL - Koundjio, Brown, Shepherd
QB - Sims
FB - Fowler
RB - Yeldon (early)
I'm sure there's plenty of talent behind thes...

I don't think $1.3M-$1.7M guaranteed for 3 years (regardless of HC) for a DC is market value. Nope.

Honestly, I can't tell, but I'm going to take this as a troll attempt. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Alleva's possible thought process. - PacWilly on 12/31/14 at 12:10 pm|
LSU's staff is already the highest paid staff in the country. The AD has to draw a line somewhere. I'd think that was part of the thought process.
You can't match the "stupid money" and $1.7M (with a guarantee regardless of HC as reported) for Chavis seems too much. And I like Chavis......
