His major league career is a pretty normal one for most guys who make the show. He had a decent run, but he was probably headed to an extended stint in AAA, and I can totaly understand a guy not wanting to be a minor leaguer at that stage of his life. The minors are for young players and players wh...

I think this desire to get Florida off of the LSU schedule is short sighted with the new world of the playoff coming.
Remember, the playoff teams will be selected pretty much the same way the NCAA Tournament teams are.
SOS is going to be a factor. Having Floridfa on the schedule is a big assi...

I respectfully disagree with regards to ESPN. In the TV business world (especially in televised college football), you want ESPN to be on your side full force. They have Phenominal Cosmic Power in the media. You need to look past their issues in content and look at it from a business standpoint. ...

One of my questions in regards to old SEC games is what kind of library will the SEC Network have to choose from? Will they have full access to all old games or just the ones from ESPN?...

To all the "Slive hates us" and "Fire Alleva" crowd:
1. The SEC wants the top available team after the BCS pics to to to Orlando. Period. If that team is an SEC East team, it really wants them there. Period.

That OSU squad losing to Iowa State is a fluke.
Losing to Alabama is not a fluke.
Losing to Alabama while playing offensive football at a level not played at by this team in years, combined with 59 minutes of expected great defense plus 1 minute of inexcusably bad defense at home is a fluke.

This is not meant to be a Pro-Hat or Anti-Hat post. It is just a fact. This program is 2 flukey things away from being in position to be the team of the decade. One of the flukes it its own fault, the other is totally out of its control.

I have never seen a sizable portion of a fan base completely melt down because the successful head coach is staying. One the one hand it is quite amusing. On the other, this could be the biggest Germans day in the history of this board.

Well, they were once coached by this guy named after an animal.

But they have always filled their stadium, which is more than their companion school in Austin can say. (Up until the Mack Brown e...

1. Night...it has an effect. It shouldn't, but it does.
2. It hasn't happened in a while, but Saban's Alabama team has laid a few eggs in similar situations in the past.

What a young QB needs is something that LSU doesn't have...a true offensive coordinator. This makeshift system they have now was ok for last year, the time has come for The Hat to find a real OC whose sole job is OC.
Just ask Alex Smith what instability at OC does for a QB, and what stability ch...

They played about as bad as they have ever played in the Les Miles era against Alabama in the Superdome (if you don't count the Monday night affair againt Tennessee), and the score was 21-0.
They will do a bit more than zip, but Alabama is not gonna do much better than 21.

This edition of LSU does not deserve the benefit of the doubt that so many of us are giving them.
This game is in the monring on the road.
Given how this season has gone, LSU needs to hold its opponent to under 20 to win.
They certainly can do it, but I have no issue with anyone picking LSU...

The Auburn game was bad. 12 points against that edition of Auburn is not good enough.
But, anyone who knows the shape of a football knows that Mett is an upgrade 1000 fold from Jefferson and Lee. They do not need him to throw for 3,000 yards or be Andrew Luck.
What they need him to do is not...

Earth to Washington fans:
1. The last time the Huskies played LSU, it wwas in Seattle. Home versus road makes a difference, especially when the road is an atmposphere you are not accustomed to
2. Your QB back then was Jake Locker. He is now a starter in the NFL. That makes a huge difference...

There is a far cry from losing the QB and losing a DB/PR.
Others can step into the DB/PR roles. You usually have just 1 good QB and 3 pieces of trash.
They will recover from TM7's departure quickly. On the field, it will not be noticed.
