Most LSU fans enjoy watching it as well as playing against it. I personally believe the rules change is silly & nothing more than compensation for lack of some team's defensive abilities. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: ...and then there were two (QBs)!! - NELA LSU Fan on 3/9/14 at 4:06 pm|
I don't pretend to know which QB will win the competition but I absolutely do take the coaches word that there IS a competition. I will say that Brandon has some unique skills and if he wins out, I'm fine with it. True freshman or not, he has the physical tools in abundance and is an exceptionally...
| SEC Rant|| re: Nick Saban is going to win this debate - NELA LSU Fan on 3/4/14 at 3:32 pm|
I think it's a generally accepted opinion that Saban would get what he wanted. I also think it's even wider accepted that it's overwhelming opposed by both fans & coaches alike. So, let's agree that while Saban likely wins the battle he most assuredly did NOT win the debate. ...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: LSU coaches on top of things... - NELA LSU Fan on 2/27/14 at 12:49 pm|
Well, without going negative on the former staff, I absolutely believe that Cameron & Grimes (possibly Peveto as well) particularly have put new fire into the process. This is very, very good for LSU. With the in-state talent that grew up wanting to be a Tiger and the renewed aggression focused ou...

[quote]who was offered today?[/quote]
Garrett Taylor, #9 CB from Virginia. I think the recent coaching changes may have infused some new enthusiasm into our recruiting. Sometimes, new blood is a very good thing.
Also offered 5* OLB Ricky DeBerry today. ...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: LSU coaches on top of things... - NELA LSU Fan on 2/26/14 at 8:32 pm|
I'm of the opinion that the staff is actively pursuing recruits to fill specific needs earlier than ever before. I don't mean to imply that this is from any previous lack of effort but rather, from a change of philosophy. I don't remember the sheer numbers of recruits being offered so early before a...

So far today alone, 8 new offers went out for 2015. Give credit to the team for being aggressive going after these guys - any we miss will not be because we didn't try. I love the new, enthusiasm they are showing on the recruiting trail. ...

[quote]Perhaps it is the future of recruiting, but I doubt it. Bama has zero commitments for 2016, 2017, and beyond, but I'm willing to bet that Bama will probably beat out most of the classes that have these early commits so long as Saban is still at the helm. Most early commits flip anyway. Too ma...

Sure, I know that. Just pointing out that I agree that all the notoriety, publicity & social networking are not particularly helpful or for that matter, healthy. That said, it is what it is & it has to be dealt with. I say kudos to our staff for recognizing what the future holds and being in fron...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: 2018 QB Zadock Dinkelmann Commits!!! - NELA LSU Fan on 2/23/14 at 2:18 pm|
I agree but that's one of the points in my post above. Things are changing - for better or worse - competition for the top tier athletes will dictate that recruiting techniques adapt or you lose. You will see other offers for this young man soon and in a very short span of time these early offers ...

As an LSU fan, I say "good riddance", the whole thing was contrived from the start. Run the HUNH or not, who cares? The whole thing smacks of the opposition to other changes to the game throughout history. Hell, at one time the forward pass was viewed as a demonic abortion by some. ...

As a side note for those that don't know it, he is responsible for perhaps the most famous (and successful) fake field goa...

Of course not. Everyone with a brain knows what it's about & as an LSU fan, I say leave the rules alone - it's not broken, there's nothing to fix. Let the HUNH offensive teams do their thing, either stop 'em & beat 'em or get better. Those in favor ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Ncaa proposed rule change for no huddle - NELA LSU Fan on 2/13/14 at 6:44 pm|
IMHO, the rules change is unnecessary & is only being considered due to high profile coaching opposition. I've seen nothing to indicate the HUNH presents undue risks to players and tend to believe the truth is more likely the real problem is that it presents defensive challenges that requires addit...
