[quote]I would understand if it's necessary. Question is, would he be expected to stay out longer?[/quote]
That would be crazy unless he is really hurt bad. I understood it to be a simple ankle injury. He needs reps against lesser teams to get adjusted before playing an SEC game. If that happen...

LF7 has never hyped himself, everyone else has. O line did not open holes for nearly 3 quarters, then Hilliard got all the carries. Magee who is a good back got nothing yesterday. LF7 was your l...

Sorry but there is no excuse for a starting middle linebacker to have one tackle against a team that runs between the tackles constantly. May be a good idea to let Beckwith take over. ...

Disagree. Magee is a proven back and a Senior, and Fournette ran better than he did thanks to the O line getting whipped the first half. Fournette was...

| Score Board|| re: Leonard Fournette's debut: 8 carries, 18 yards, 2.3 YPC, 0 TD - la champ1 on 8/31/14 at 12:24 am|
Magee is a good back and he got nothing tonight. Hilliard got nothing in the first half. Fournette was the best looking back in the first half and that's not saying much. Wisconsin must have confused and outplayed the hell out of our o line. Hilliard had gaping holes in the fourth quarter. ...

Wisconsin is a good program, but they have lost a lot also. They are starting a true freshman safety. I believe our younger defensive guys have improved greatly from their experience last year. Don't get this guy talking like this Wisconsin team is all world. They are good team and if we fail to li...
| SEC Rant|| re: Is Kevin Sumlin best in the SEC at QB development? - la champ1 on 8/22/14 at 8:02 am|
He is the best at designing a system that can produce monstrous numbers with almost any decently talented QB. Far as QB development, absolutely not. Manziel is still trying to get used to the huddle, some drops, and and other things that should be basic for a rookie QB in the NFL. ...

[quote]You guys predicting a blowout against Wisky might be in for a rude awakening. The last time a Wisconsin team lost by more than 10 points was October of 2009 to the eventual Rose Bowl Champions. They're in every game they play because they're big, physical and can eat up clock. Yes, they've lo...

[quote]There are very few just "pocket passers". Nearly every at least decent QB to come into the league the last few years, are either dual threat, or very mobile.[/quote]

Disagree. The best QB's in the league today are pocket passers still. All this kapernick craze and some of these others really have benefited from there defense and running games more than there quarterbacking abilities. If they surround him with the right people, he can have a very good career. Bec...

| Tiger Rant|| re: William Clapp on the D Line ? - la champ1 on 8/11/14 at 10:37 am|
Hard enough for a freshman to adjust to playing a position he's likely played most of his life at a high caliber college level, much less switch to a new position and play that at a high level in his freshmen year. His time will definately come on the o line. He has potential to do great things. ...

Mett was money and very impressive in his debut. The fumble was caused by weather, the int by deflection off RB hands. His pocket awareness was good, he got rid of the ball quickly, and more than anything he understands what "NFL open" is thanks to cam Cameron. Manziel was looking for wide open guys...
