re: Rundown of how the CFB playoffs will work - Carlos on 5/19/14 at 11:11 pm
I agree they should have just left the BCS rankings in place to decide the 4, but ultimately each team will control its own destiny. A one loss SEC champ should be enough to get in each year. I'm also glad they're leaving it at 4 teams, there are no more than 4 each year who deserve to be in the h...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

2000 was fun but it's difficult to top the second half of 2001. The monster offensive performance at Bama, then the four game run of Arkansas, Auburn, Tennessee, Illinois. A span of a five weeks saw our first ever division title, first conference title in 13 years, and first major bowl win In ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Well in 2011, you can at least say that a flipped result in the Jan 9 game means we win it. So we did control our own destiny until the very end. Depends if you think we were really better than them and should have beaten them in the Dome. I wanted to say 2012, from the standpoint that a flippe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Johnny Jones is in year one of a rebuilding project. In Saban's fist year at LSU, we were thrilled to win any SEC game. Hell, we rushed the field for an overtime win over 11th ranked Tennessee. Things are different when you're an established program. And then add to it, in football a single re...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Pit bulls have definitely earned their reputation, there is no doubt about that. I would never own one, too many better, more friendly breeds of dogs out there. But in this case, it's 100% on the parents of the child. Per the article, 1) the yard was fenced in and 2) the dog was on a chain. De...

re: '13 -Best/Worst Case Scenarios? - Carlos on 1/12/13 at 10:53 pm
To answer OP, we probably go 8-4. Losing to Ags, Bama, Georgia... then probably lose one out of Arkansas, Ole Miss, TCU, Florida and State. ETA: this is the best case scenario. Too many losses on the defensive side of the ball, and it's doubtful Miles will be changing his offensive philosophy...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

To answer the OP question, no. Even the staff of 1997 managed to lose three games inexplicably, to lesser talent. We were good for an occasional Atlanta run, that was probably the ceiling. Not enough emphasis on facilities at the time. This was a hallmark of Saban and Emmert. Our recruiting ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
