Also, I don't take anything Engster says w/ any level of credibility. In the mid-80s when LSU kept losing bowl games, that guy offered this solution: decline major bowl bids to play in the Indy Bowl vs Grambling in order to win a bowl. This guy is either a $h!t-stirrer or a retard. ...

Absolutely not. LSU shouldn't play any FCS teams. If LSU really wants to play an in-state team, then the Tigers should play Toolame, Oo-Lah-Lah or 1 of the other bottom-feeding FBS members....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Should LSU play tougher non-conference schedule - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 1/31/14 at 6:58 pm|
LSU needs to drop the FCS/Div. 1-AA opponents. Also, playing just 1 team from a major conference will suffice, preferably home & home instead of in NFL stadiums. For the sake of the season ticket holders, give them 1 OOC contest worth attending. ...

This guy put way too much credit for bowls. A loss in a BCS bowl is worth almost as much as a win? That's ridiculous. Of course mere invitations to BCS bowls will skew the numbers higher for media darlings like ND & OH St. They were always invited to BCS bowls for higher TV #s over teams w/ less mar...

The chancellor at the time, Mark Emmert, was heavily involved in luring Saban. They saw what he was capable of accomplishing despite 4 mediocre seasons then 1 great yr in East Lansing. Pres.

All teams being treated equally by the schedule-makers, the Saints have a 1/6 chance of playing @ Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. (The Cowboys have to host an NFC opponent then due to networks' rotation on that day.) The other possible opponents are the Giants, Redskins, Eagles, 49ers & Cards. My ...

I care since I've had an on-going banter w/ some fans of the Slow 10. They say the SEC is overrated. One thinks the SEC chose to play unranked Slow 10 teams b/c they're scared to play ranked teams in bowls. He seems to be stuck in the era before the conference tie-ins starting in 1990s. ...

According to my review of bowl scores, the SEC only needs to win 1 of its 2 remaining bowls to win this trophy. Right now, the SEC has a 6-2 record. The PAC 12 is 6-3 & has no teams left to play. The AAC is 2-2 w/ 1 more game left. The Sun Belt can't win it despite possibility of finishing 2-0 since...

If the Saints can win both games vs Carolina, they can lose the other 2 but still win the division. In that scenario, both would finish 11-5. The Saints would win the div. by the 1st tie-breaker, head-to-head. ...
