[quote]How did Plaisance do? Appeared she had problems against Michigan
Plaisance scored 10 pts today. She's not been scoring quite as much as last season. But that's mainly because, the scoring on this team is much more spread out................which is a good thing. Even McKinney has...

[quote]I will not mention players but I thought the team met expectations. Preseason I thought we would go 9-3. Although I did not factor in the OM loss or thought that Florida would be that bad. I felt like we would struggle on defense early and we did. In hindsight we could have easily have been 1...

I'm really not as concerned about Quille as I am Dupre and Noil. But, if that helped convince him so be it.

That this will still be a program to be reckoned with and that we'll have a capable QB next season and in the near future. I sure hope so. Hope Fournette, Noil, and Dupre were watching.

I would agree.......
In fact, I don't believe they'll lose to anyone else until they play Tennessee on January 2nd (that would include Tulane and LaTech). The game in Knoxville should be a good one for sure!

Actually, I was at that game in Louisville. The game was close up until around 11 minutes left in the game (six point game) at that point, Louisville went on like, a 20-0 run. LSU never recovered from that. It wasn't so much that our posts were "lazy". It was that Louisville's post were WAY QUICKER ...

As far as recruiting, I don't see a problem with how she's done.
When she got here, Van had pretty much taken the program to the point where it was DIFFICULT to draw in the kind of recruits that a UConn or Tennessee draws. However, she's done a VERY good job bringing in some top talent. In her fi...
