[quote]I am done with them[/quote]
Yep. I dumped them after the Landon Collins fiasco. Mike S. was lying to his paid subscribers for weeks leading up to the announcement. I understood his stated reasons, but I just didn't agree with them. So, I decided then that I had better places to spend m...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Ranking the 16 BCS National Champions - kdbroom on 1/8/14 at 12:17 pm|
Of course not. The analysis is far too simple when they start off by saying "the only champion with two losses." Really? Their analysis didn't go any further than 2>1>0? Yawn....

KF played for all four years. I highly doubt LF will stay beyond three, if he has similar success. So, unless LF can accomplish more in three years than KF did in four, I don't think he will....

[quote]my perception is Cut is at the point in his life where stability and stress may be more important than trying to climb to the top of the coaching tree. Louisville is the better football job but I'm not sure Cut wants to move[/quote]
This was the case when he was at Ole Miss. If the Chance...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Favorite LSU Games of the 21st Century - kdbroom on 1/5/14 at 7:33 am|
I'd say the 03 game against Ole Miss was my favorite. I was in the stands to see LSU ruin Senior night for Eli Manning, when they were undefeated in the SEC, with a trip to the SECCG on the line (that was their best chance), on national TV, in front of a packed house, with all of his family in the ...

[quote]i understand running backs are generally less valued but holy crap 5th round is way too low[/quote]
I would argue that it's not that they're undervalued, but rather that too many teams have had success with lower round picks. As a result, teams now will wait drafting on a running back. P...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU ranking among BCS championship game participants? - kdbroom on 1/3/14 at 10:04 pm|
I'm sure the 2007 team has to be ranked at the bottom of all BCSCG winners. I mean, they can't possibly be expected to do any more in-depth analysis than simply saying "only 2-loss champion = worst champion". I'd expect the 2003 team to not be far above the 2007 team due to the split title and the...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Did the bowl game inpact the recruits? - kdbroom on 1/2/14 at 6:30 pm|
The older I get, the less I give a crap about recruiting. I'll pay attention to these guys only after they show up on campus and are in uniform as an LSU Tiger. Between the committing, de-committing, re-committing, etc., it's just too much of a headache. Then, you have to worry about whether or not...

| Coaching Changes|| re: If Briles does go to Texas(Big If), who goes to Baylor? - kdbroom on 12/31/13 at 6:16 pm|
Promote Phil Bennett from DC. That hire maintains continuity while getting someone with head coaching experience. Not saying it's the best hire, but a reasonable hire for a school like Baylor. Of course Briles would probably take a bunch of his staff to Texas though, so I don't know how much cont...

JR = bunch of wins, no titles.
MF = SEC and BCS championship.
MF > JR
JR = biggest NFL bust in history.
MF = still in the NFL.
