re: This draft proves one thing to me - nf
Going on a three loss skid after starting 7-0 is pretty much the definition of "the wheels falling off." As in "things were going well and then the wheels fell off." The weak starting schedule most years artificially inflates our rankings and then we come back down to earth when we get into the...

re: My hat off to "The Hat" - nf
[quote]I love how you have to have qualifiers for the stats to be in your favor. Not all conf schedules are created equally. Bottom line is lsu finished 4th in offensive yards per game and 3rd in offensive points per game.[/quote] You're comparing stats within the SEC then why not compare them W...

[quote]You mean like our 2015 offense? The offense that finished 4th in the sec in offensive yards per game and 3rd in the sec in offensive points per game? The offense that has been good 2 of the last 3 years?[/quote] When you limit it to conference games only (take out the cupcakes) LSU was 6t...

re: Transition from Chavis to Steele at DC... - nf
Chavis had his problems but his defenses were basically always in the top two in the SEC and top 20 in the nation, which is as good as anyone in the nation outside of Saban. The idea that a dude with a resume like Steele is going to be an upgrade over one of they very best DCs in the nation is dumb...

re: Why can't good highschool qbs realize that the qb position is the missing link - nf
[quote]Wow lol, you are dumb arse frick!!! Jimbo has been telling all his guys that they can be the next Russell, Ponder, Manuel, and now Winston. First round QBs who have made millions of dollars. You know what the first 3 have in common, they all sucked arse in the NFL. Or take Meyer for examp...

re: Why can't good highschool qbs realize that the qb position is the missing link - nf
Not directed at you, just didn't feel like scrolling back to find the guys talking about LSU QBs going to the NFL as if Jamarcus getting a shitload of money and then bombing out spectacularly is a good thing. Or Matt Flynn being perennially mediocre. If we're recruiting dudes whose biggest desi...

re: Why can't good highschool qbs realize that the qb position is the missing link - nf
Do people really think Jamarcus Russell and Matt Flynn are positive stories to tell recruits? "Come to LSU, you could be the next worst bust in draft history (but without the millions because of the fixed wage scale for draft picks) or a perennial backup who couldn't make it out of preseason wi...

re: Clearing up a couple of things on Steele - nf
[quote]If the guy sucked so bad and was demoted the 1st time he was at Bama, why did Saban hire him back after his stint at Clemson? Answer me this. [/quote] He didn't hire him back as his DC. If we hired him as a director of player personnel or linebackers coach he'd be a fine hire. This i...

re: Time to support our new DC - nf
[quote]Hurt feelings aside, it's hard to imagine Nick Saban having a guy on his staff that isn't very competent. Let's face it, Saban's known as a taskmaster and not in the business of making friends with his assistants. If you are there, it's because you bring something of value to the position. Ju...

re: 2013 LSU offense's misconceptions - nf
So no actual recognition of a record by the SEC. Gotcha. And now using conference games is cherry picking. Because conference games totally don't determine conference standing. You posted five times I a row with nothing at all to say. Though at least now you've moved the goalposts from "the...

[quote]No sec team plays the same schedule. Bama's east opp were at Kentucky and Tenn while lsu played Florida and at uga . Auburn played at tenn and uga. Who cared how many sec teams are in front of us. Doesnt change the fact that lsu finished very high in offensive stats last year. [/quote] We...

[quote]It isn't really arbitrary, centennials of carries are pretty standard measurements. [/quote] It's arbitrary because 200 carries is not materially different than 180 carries other than our preference for round numbers. It's also arbitrary in that a gap of 100 carries is relatively huge so ...

[quote]Wrong. [/quote] Nope. Limit the stats to in conference games only and see where we come out. Conference play is what matters, not stat padding against body bag opponents. When limited to in conference play only LSU was behind Alabama, A&M, Auburn and Missouri in YPA. ...

re: 2013 LSU offense's misconceptions - nf
[quote]There is minimum (200)on carries since your ypc usually goes down with an increase in carries. Jeremy hill owns the sec ypc record. [/quote] So he set a record for a rate stat as long as you apply an arbitrary qualifier (which he just barely meets, at 203 carries)? We're meant to believe ...

When limited to just conference play they were: 4th in yards per play 6th in points per game 9th in red zone conversion percentage 8th in rush yards per play They were a good offense. But they weren't record breaking and they weren't even the best in the SEC by efficiency, in a year where ...
