re: Prolly Germans but LSU to gauge Interest of Meyer and Saban - Meathead
What harm does a call to Sexton do? "Hey Jimmy, we have a vacancy in BR. Any chance Miss Terry would be interested in coming home?" "Well Joe, I'm not going to lie, she has always been in love with Baton Rouge & never really liked Alabama other than it being closer to the lake house. I'll se...

re: Are season ticket holders ok with tradition fund increases to get their #1 guy? - Meathead
Pretty sure you completely misread my post. Last year athletics sent a $13M+ payment to academics to cover tuition payments for athletes. After that, there was a $7M+ payment made as part of an academic support program. Athletics sent an extra $3M on top of that, so $10M in non-tuition related at...

re: Does Saban retire earlier now that Les isn't in the SEC anymore? - Meathead
On second thought, I think Saban is forced out at the end of the year just so Bama can zero in on LSU's top candidates & outbid us for them. It's the ultimate "frick you" from Tuscaloosa....

re: Are season ticket holders ok with tradition fund increases to get their #1 guy? - Meathead
[quote]I would go for it if the AD would stop the insanity of giving money to LSU's general fund.[/quote] The bulk of that money sent to the academic side is to pay for the scholarships that all the players (in all sports) get. Yes, in several years past, there has been a transfer above & beyond, ...

Saban couldn't give a wet fart about what LSU did with Les Miles outside of Jimmy Sexton using the possibility of LSU wanting him back to try & squeeze another $1M out of the Bama boosters....

re: Are season ticket holders ok with tradition fund increases to get their #1 guy? - Meathead
The boosters wanted Miles out. They will (and should) fund the full buyout, so the AD should not have to finance that. The salary of a new HC will be more than what we were paying Miles, but I would guess that the support salaries will also go down. Miles overpayed his staff for what we got. Des...

re: Spinoff: LSU will be screwed under the "playoff" system - Meathead
I know this is a wildly unpopular opinion, but I think a requirement to be in the playoff is that you have to win your conference. How can you say that you are the best team in the country when you aren't even the best team in your conference? Yes, the SEC is a better conference top to bottom th...

[quote]If this is true, no way Fla St gets left out. The only undefeated's we have hope jumping are Ohio State and Louisville. Ohio State isn't even a given IMO. Now you're talking about having 4 other undefeated teams? No way. We'd be Sugar Bowl bound.[/quote] http://www.teamrankings.com/col...

re: Flexible Pricing, Tradition Fund Increase Incoming? - Meathead
I'm all for LSU raising the prices to keep up with the top tier of athletics in the nation, but 2014 is a bad time to do it. The home slate in 2014 is not something that a lot of fans will look at & say "Yep, I think it's totally worth it to pay more for this caliber of home scheduling" Price in...

re: Fire at the LSU Fieldhouse - Meathead

re: Why aren't student tickets free as they once were? - Meathead
I was at LSU from 94-99. General admission student tickets were $3. Reserved student organization seats (i.e. Fraternities) were $7 & each student could buy 2 sets (date tickets). It sounds like student tickets are now $12 a game which is a far cry form the $70 I paid for each of my Florida ticke...
