re: Only ranters could melt down because we got paired with Notre Dame in a bowl. - droliver
Maybe it's just an Alabama thing, but we enjoy beating ND as much as Auburn. It just brings out this visceral response to Bama fans. Definitely routing for LSU in this one. Can be cold as balls in Nashville sometimes at that time of year. Last music city bowl we went to in 1998 was in freezing ra...

re: Who ya got? Amari Cooper or Julio Jones? - droliver
If you believe reports, Cooper was running in the low 4.3 range this summer, and is certainly faster then JJ in game conditions. He has better hands and is a much more elusive route runner the Julio as well. He reminds scouts of a bigger Marvin Harrison. Julio OTOH is just the prototypical physic...

re: The words everyone hates to hear "The Decline" - droliver
From the outside it just looks like LSU is in a rut, kind of like Nebraska under Solich was about a decade ago. Miles has not shown that he's the guy to rehab the program from good to consistently very good/great. The inconsistency on the field just seems to reflect the culture Miles fosters off it....

re: RB depth chart for 2015? - droliver
If Drake can run full speed by the time of the draft, he'd have to give some consideration to coming out, no? He's already show he can be an explosive runner and pass catcher. I don't know that his value goes up by just coming back as another back in the rotation. If he can run a 4.3 in the sprin...

re: Blake Sims is my favorite QB ever - droliver
I hate to nit-pick, but are we watching the same guy? He's very inconsistent with his throws on swing passes and on across the middle in terms of putting it in the right spot. Some of those slow cross field throws he makes also give me heart attacks as he doesn't really have the arm to make it. L...

re: Bama fans....in all honesty. Bama vs lsu series - droliver
The talent level between LSU and Alabama has been fairly level (slight edge UA) for the last 7 years or so, but Les Miles' coaching and personality is so unpredictable it's going to cost you some games you should have won. Without a doubt, LSU is one of the most [b]undisciplined[/b] good teams e...

re: So youre telling me theres a chance! - droliver
Going to hard to thread the needle with this scenario. I do not see MSU or Auburn losing 2 more games. Auburn will be favored in all but the iron bowl, and that's only because it's on the road. MSU will be favorites in all but the Alabama game. LSU will also be a home underdog against Alabama. To...

re: 5-way tie atop the West, does LSU win the tie? - droliver
With multiple teams tied who've all beaten the others and all have the same division record, doesn't it go to some strength # of the cross division opponents in the SEC? LSU: UF, UK UA: UF, UT MSU: UK, Vandy OM: Vandu, UT AU: UGA, USC Auburn has the best opponent record with UGA in the m...

re: Hypothetical tie-breaker situation - droliver
I think Alabama wins that 3 way breaker (with MSO & OM), just as Auburn would win it for the right to go to the SECCG. There's a pretty good chance that an 11-1 team from the West who lost that tiebreaker could make the final 4 as the last team in....

re: Ok Florida Fans..Who do you want as your next HC? - droliver

re: Playoff Scenario: 3 1 loss SEC Teams - droliver
Multiple scenarios to end up with 3, 1 loss SEC teams. Scenario 1: MSU loses to Bama, beats Ole Miss, and we end up with a 3 way tie with MSU, OM, & UA. Assuming UGA only has 1 loss that would leave 3 teams with 1 loss whoever wins the SECCG. Scenario 2: Auburn beats UA,UGA, & Ole Miss. OM bea...

re: Ok Florida Fans..Who do you want as your next HC? - droliver
You have to think it's Mullen's job if he wants it, no? Him aside, you look at current head coaches who might leave their current gig. If it was me looking for a home run, I'd focus on [b]Bryan Kelly[/b] @ Notre Dame. It's been well documented he's been frustrated with the academic challenges of ...

re: How do the playoffs shake out if so many of the top 5 are in the SEC? - droliver
"Well it is impossible to have more than 2 one loss SEC teams when the selections are made." Wrong. Scenario 1: MSU loses to Bama, beats Ole Miss, and we end up with a 3 way tie with MSU, OM, & UA. Assuming UGA only has 1 loss that would leave 3 teams with 1 loss whoever wins the SECCG. Sce...

re: The Worst What If for SEC - droliver
SEC is not getting 2 teams in the playoff without mass chaos. Would need Mich state, OSU, Orgeon, and Arizona to all have 2 losses or the Big 8 champ to end up with 2 losses, based on Sports Illustrated insights into how the committee will work for them to bypass the champion of those 3 conferences...

re: LOL @ Lou Holtz Current Playoff Projection - droliver
Holtz is just ignoring the schedules coming up with something stupid like that. There really is a pretty clear shakeout so far: 1. SEC champ 2. FSU/ND winner 3. Baylor/Oklahoma winner 4. Oregon or Michigan State (presuming one or both win their conferences with no more losses) I don't se...

Has LSU football improved under CLM? Yes, without question. LSU has been a perennial powerhouse for a decade, having nothing like the kind of sustained success you've seen. CLM is a goofball and not the OCD administrator Saban was, but he's been very, very good. ...
