Like the idiot who posted right above this. He thinks the coaches are...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Anyone know the LSU record for freshman allpurpose yards? - Penrod on 10/30/14 at 3:48 pm|
Who cares? It's such bullshite, anyway. Kickoff returns either should not count, or should be based on a baseline of the 25 yard line.
If I put my 80 year old 300 pound mother-in-law back there she'd average getting the ball to the 25 yard line. So if Fournette runs it from the goal line, and...

This is where you're wrong. Do you see teams manning up on our receivers and stacking the box? Nope. You'll read plenty of posters who think that's happening, but it's not most of the time. Teams are pkaying LSU honestly because th...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Melvin Jones Looking Really Solid - Penrod on 10/29/14 at 8:22 pm|
Get your eyes checked. I'm happy with Jones, but Neighbors is the best I've seen in over 40 years of LSU football. I'll say it yet again, it's amazing that when a world class football player passes through our program most people don't even realize it. Neighbors would be an NFL all pro if they still...

[quote]Locouture is very underrated, he doesn't get many sack or tfl but he usually takes on two blockers on run plays[/quote]
You're right. Lacouture is probably the most underrated player on the defense. He's a stud in the DT spot. I'd guess that he and Godcaux are our best two, with QT being...

During his first four or five games Godchaux looked just like the third year Freak. He was getting turned sideways and pushed backwards. The last three games Godchaux has played better than Freak ever ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Melvin Jones Looking Really Solid - Penrod on 10/29/14 at 7:40 pm|
He'll be good next year, but we'll take a step backwards at that position. We'll probably be at Copeland level, which is very good as long as you're not expecting Neighbors. ...

It was an awful game. Very frustrating because LSU got the piss beat out of them for about 58 minutes. A number of miracles occured to keep the game close, then LSU won it with a great drive.
The whole earthquake thing was a fabrication. Obviously there was nothing remarkable about that particul...

Probably. But he's less of a mauler and more of a nifty lineman. He is exceptional at pulling and at sliding to the second level.

Good points. Also, this defense is weaker. Therefore teams have probably run more plays against us - at least more running plays in which these guys can get tackles. It's hard for 2011 guys to rack up tackle stats when teams are going 3 and out. And then, w...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Kendell Beckwith Appreciation - Penrod on 10/29/14 at 10:14 am|
Godchaux, Beckwith and Adams are going to make LSU's defense very tough up the middle in 2015.
We have two DEs to replace next year. I'll bet Lewis Neal moves back to DE and is a killer next year. Tashawn Bower already looks good. Deondre Clark, Tehuma and Patterson will provide depth.
