Well if anyone suddenly hits the crapper Auburn would be one of the least surprising. To give proof to this reasoning, we had the Year of Cam and then, not even two years later, we were drafting Auburn fans to our teams. It would surprise even less if this trend of peaks and valleys continued and th...

He's made what appears to be a couple of solid hires and a bad one in Trent Johnson. He's argued our case to the SEC vehemently for years now, but to no avail. That's just the facts of life, there's not a single AD who could have made our position better in regards to scheduling (Bama included). The...

To kind of step back a bit, I think it would take strong argument to say that Bo hasn't contributed to there current success. Has he made boneheaded moves? Yeah. But all managers do. That being said, the impact of a manager really does seem minimal at times....

It's patronizing isn't really an answer. That's just how you feel about it. It's not like they're cheering for them to win. Watch the game and don't sweat the small stuff.

Unsurprisingly, Nola made the cut. I don't really keep up with other college baseball teams beyond LSU, but is there any chance he wins this? Or is there another player that's just a cut above the rest?

Oh, that was weird. At least I'm not alone. Did they skip anyone else? Kind of aggravating. They could have at least announced so I didn't have to look it up. Pick was in and that was it. I didn't watch this much so they could just not even give the name....

[quote]You people who want to be "cautious" have some bizarre sense of self importance[/quote].
I don't see how tempering expectations reflects a sense of self-importance on my end. And I liked Dennard better in the first round. That's all I said. I like the Cooks pick and it is what it is.
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Lee/SJB/Archer vs. Cooks/SJB - Jesterea on 5/9/14 at 10:57 pm|
To be honest though, we could have not had a single pick this year and I feel like we could go to the playoffs. Anyone we get with value is just sort of icing on the cake. Still, those bringing up the predictability issue is probably the most cogent argument for picking up Cooks. I really think he's...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Lee/SJB/Archer vs. Cooks/SJB - Jesterea on 5/9/14 at 10:45 pm|
The guys who broke down the advantages of the multiple rolls Cooks can play were reasonable. People calling those who disagree stupid are predictable. If you feel you have the "right" opinion, then you have to tear others down. Still wish we could have got Dennard, but meh. It is what it is. SJB fee...
