It appears that some of you all didn't read what I'd posted earlier. Coach Gunter had THREE LOSING SEASONS IN A ROW. Yet............. Joe Dean gave her another year and look at what she did. Let me make myself clear.............I don't care what record she finishes this season with. You don't fire a...

[quote] I think the biggest question is where do we draw the line? This is Caldwell's 4th year. These are her players. She does well when she has had talent (Even at UCLA). She just cannot seem to bring talent here to LSU. This is the major issue. Like I said half the players on the roster shouldn't...

[quote]ou can keep making this thread after every loss but it still won't happen. This year seems destined to be a failure but it'll be the first in her 4 years. She'll get a talking to about righting the ship and that's it. [/quote]
I agree with this (as I always do). ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

[quote]LSU's RPI is 195, La Tech 182, should be a close game..
sainstfan, lsualum? if we go 5-11 in SEC is that enough for you both to admit NC needs to go?
If not why...4 years, no incoming talent next year and plenty of coaches we could get for $700k (which Im glad to pay for a winner)..really...

[quote]I consider myself one of the more level-headed assessors of things around here….I am not one to immediately call for the firing of people after a couple of bad games and I like to see how things play out before I make a blanket assessment of the situation.
That having been said, one can lo...

[quote]True but still average. if LSU went 10-3 every season I would still be pissed knowing the potential of this program. The point is that since 2011 this program is average at best and that's unacceptable. [/quote]
And therein lies the problem. No where in America........save for Alabama........

I mean........................knowing what we had coming back this season, did y'all really think that the team was gonna be that great this season? Honestly? With Ballard, they're a good........not great or elite.........team. Without her they're average at best. I think our guard rotation is good ...

[quote]70-54 at home vs a mediocre sunbelt team! OK, I posted about my worries a few weeks ago, and I know it is game one, but this may be the 2nd worst loss in the past 15 years (NC also has the #1 worst). In any casae, year 4 for NC, I say SEC 10th place or worse under .500 in sec. .500 overall an...

[quote]In the short term, I'd look for a JUCO QB who can run and pass--and just as important, who can learn quickly. Very quickly.
Even IF we did something like this, that QB will need at least a year in the system to be ready. Why not just go with Harris plus we probably have Feleipe F...

[quote]And the conspiracy theories are laughable. To say that miles is a retard but calls all the play assumes he has the playbook memorized since he doesn't have the play calling sheet in his hands.
We don't pass because our WRs and QB suck. They suck because they don't have any experience. They...

Actually TCU is a pretty good example. Lets see what happens in the near future. I don't think the fanbase is holding out much hope though....

I will admit that I'm a little leary about this Arkansas game. With a team as young as ours, it's definitely possible that we come out flat................compounding our problem. :banghead:...
