Read it, know it, live it: The Habit of Winning by Vince Lombardi - Iconoclastic
Winning is not a sometime thing. You don't win once-in-a-while. You don't do things right once-in-a-while. You do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing. There is no room for second place. There is only one place in my game, and that is first place. I have finished...

re: miles haters need to read this about the LSU football program - Iconoclastic
You seem to be perfectly satisfied with second place, but the second-place finisher is only first among all the others who didn't finish in first place, either. ...

re: miles haters need to read this about the LSU football program - Iconoclastic
Branding Miles' critics as "haters" is a trick intended to discredit his critics, without having to respond to the content of their criticism. How many times does it have to be said that name calling is the last refuge of the intellectually bankrupt?...

re: Any LSU fan that will root for Bama because they are in the SEC - Iconoclastic
On some level, I understand the concept of SEC loyalty, but I don't understand how it could ever extend to any LSU fan ever pulling for Bama against any other team in a NC game. Bama should always be persona non grata, especially during the Saban era. ...

re: Love or Hate Miles, he's still a grt coach!!!! Gotta take good with badd - Iconoclastic
Miles is not a great coach. Basically, he's an average coach, but he's a very good recruiter. As far as player development goes, which is the other aspect of recruiting, he's average at that, too. Most of the time, he wins because he has better players and more of them....

"A fish rots from the head down." - Iconoclastic
From an outside perspective looking in, this adage appears to be an apt metaphor for much of what is wrong with our football program. Miles is too much of a "players coach" and not enough of a "martinet" (a stern but fair disciplinarian). As such, Miles is mostly responsible for the off-the-field is...

re: The SEC's headquarters - Iconoclastic
There is no perfect location, but Birmingham is a small, insular city, which is Bama-centric. Even though UGA is in Athens, Atlanta would be a much better choice than Birmingham because Atlanta is a major, cosmopolitan city populated by people from all over the nation, with a world-class airport an...

The SEC's headquarters - Iconoclastic
If Bama bias exists, how much of it derives from the fact that the SEC is headquartered in Birmingham and that for many years, Bama and the Bear were largely responsible for keeping SEC football in the national discussion? ...

re: You can NOT have it both ways - Iconoclastic
The only statistic that matters is the score. You're making an argument for a moral victory, and that's a loser's mentality. As long as Miles is the coach, it's very unlikely that we'll win another NC, unless Saban retires or takes a job in the NFL....

Bama's OL, Nick Saban and Michael Jordan - Iconoclastic
If you watch enough college football, you'll see that many offensive plays, which provide pass protection for as long as Bama's OL usually does, result in a holding penalty. Although Bama has a very good OL, they rarely get called for a holding penalty, even when the pass protection is for an extend...

re: only 1 difference between these 2 teams - Iconoclastic
I wish I could disagree with you, but I can't. However, like any other team, Bama can have a bad day, and LSU might, finally, play up to its potential, on both sides of the ball, for 60 minutes. I really don't like saying "Bama can have a bad day" because that could imply they might beat themselve...

It's time for us to close ranks. - Iconoclastic
Enough of the good-natured humor, and even criticism, that so many of us have directed toward some members of the coaching staff and some of the players, this week. Collectively, we should all employ the power of positive thinking about our prospects for victory this Saturday night. Let's never fo...

The Vegas bookies - Iconoclastic
They have made LSU a 10 1/2 point underdog, at home. As far as motivation goes, this can be added to the list of intangibles, which are already in LSU's favor. Intangibles alone won't be enough to win Saturday night but as far as the intangibles go, it probably couldn't get any better....

Einstein's definition of insanity: - Iconoclastic
"Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." According to Brian Griese, who said he reviewed the game tape, LSU ran the same 2-man, pass route 18 times against USCe.

"A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens - Iconoclastic
Bo Schembechler is like the ghost of Christmas past who haunts Miles in his dreams. Miles needs to wake up from his nightmare, smell the cafe au lait and tell Schembechler's ghost that he can go to the "dickens" with his 20th century, Big Ten style of offense, because it is demonstrably ineffective ...
