| Tiger Rant|| re: Jalen Collins 40 time Updated - BayouCowboy on 2/23/15 at 10:19 am|
Regarding the RR vs Collins debate, both players showed flashes and both had struggles. Collins was burned early and often when he first started before being dropped on the depth chart. He turned it around last season. No coaching blunders, no conspiracy theories, the guy manned up and stepped up...

[quote]After watching the highlights, I see several things that made DJ Welter a very poor middle LB, besides being undersized. 1) Welter's feet always stop on contact. He never keeps his feet moving through the tackle 2) Welter never stopped someone in their tracks in the hole. It was always a f...

I'm really hoping Valentine impresses and gets to start. His size will not only clog up the interior line and draw double teams, but he would be able to keep the LBs free to roam....

[quote]Well the WR recruits apparently love him. And everyone is saying he's a damn solid position coach. I am happy.[/quote]
If Ball can coach up the WRS then that will more than draw interest for recruits. If they develop and go on to the NFL there is no greater recruiting tool. He'll be land...

[quote]Cameron eluded to changing the offense up after the loss to ND. Hopefully Miles allows him to do so. Need to get our RBs and QBs in open space more. Use the whole field. We shall see. I'm optimistic though![/quote]
I'll be curious to see that because we run a pro-style offense out of heavy...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: The Table is Now Set for Harris! - BayouCowboy on 2/5/15 at 7:46 am|
Les, Cam and our QBs need to step up their game because we have the pieces in place to make this a great offense. It's really on all of their heads if we don't produce this next season....

Outside of Fournette, Valentine was the guy I was most excited about playing. I think he'll be such a force in the middle that it will transform the D. We were soft in the interior. With TV and Beckwith that will no longer be the case....

[quote]I still don't understand why we are going hard after CBs. We have 6 on roster and 2 more who will sign on NSD. Even if you say Lewis will be a safety, 7 is enough for a 2 man rotation, 3rd string for both spots, plus a nickel corner. Then Lewis will play down at nickel if we happen to need hi...

I get that Harris may not have been ready to take on a significant role, but I do wonder why they didn't have certain packages to get him on the field more.
I've heard all the rumors about his maturity and dedication, but I also know from family and friends up here in NWLA that Harris is a good...

We ranked 2nd to last in QB play (yards/TDs/rating) ahead of Driskel and FLA and dead last in SEC completion percentage at 48.8% (121st in the nation out of 123 QBs rated according to ESPN). I get that Jennings is still learning/developing, but considering teams load the box to stop the run due to ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Chavis's departure will end up being a blessing - BayouCowboy on 1/20/15 at 1:31 pm|
I don't follow recruiting closely, but it does seem we recruit far better at safety and CB than we do at LB and DL. We may start to see more NFL size LBs on the roster rather than guys that look more like safeties. Beckwith and Garrett was a start in the right direction and it took a year to get B...
