re: TCU thrilled to have Diarse. - JohnnyU
it really wasn't the point of my response. It's hard to understand why LSU has been successful recruiting WR in the last several years when you consider what a dumpster fire our passing game has been [u]other than 2013[/u]. Our passing offense has been dysfunctional for years with so much empha...

re: Jacob Hester joining radio broadcast team - JohnnyU
[quote]Just for the record, dude's awful.[/quote] I don't think so. He's new and different. Most of all he is not familiar to his audience. His voice and calls are fine. Plus, it's not exactly like he's had a lot to work with in terms of offense. 23 PPG (only 16.7 vs P5 teams) is not the st...

re: Don't be surprised if only small changes on offense - JohnnyU
No one should expect a new offense. Just better, less predictable play calling. Guice and LF on the field together (when LF is healthy). Rub routes, drag routes, etc. The plays are probably there. You can run more multiple receiver sets and less 2 TE's. ...

[quote]The average career of an NFL WR is 3.3 years ( SOURCE). RR played for 6 years. [/quote] Did RR play on the 2011 team? Let me see. I think he did. So he played in the NFL 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and released this year. That is four years....

re: Official Prediction Thread: LSU vs Missouri - JohnnyU
Mizzou 28 LSU 27 Mizzou has a dynamic passing offense and there are still too many blown assignments and breakdowns in the secondary. LSU's offense is inept until proven otherwise so 27 may be optimistic. ...

[quote]Another poster that has no clue what he's talking about. [/quote] That's laughable. I have plenty of clues. [quote]Oh, you're trolling. Ok, my bad.[/quote] No, not at all. The sad fact is that we LSU's offense is laughable under Miles and Cameron and the record shows it. Fact:...

[quote]Dwayne Bowe Rueben Randle Odell Beckham jr. They said you should give them a call[/quote] Bowe was a Saban Recruit. He played for two years under each of them. Rueben Randle was released after a short NFL career. You think Beckham wouldn't have been a star somewhere else?...

re: Tearing down Miles' legacy requires tearing down LSU's legacy - JohnnyU
Through 2011 he had established a great legacy. That cannot be diminished. His last few years are the definition of mediocrity. Taking sentimentality out of it, it was time to move on. Nothing more. LSU is still a great brand the brand belongs to LSU and not Les Miles. ...

[quote]I'll say it again, would anyone really play him over Dural, Dupre, or Chark? No, no you wouldn't.[/quote] How great are Dural, Dupre or Chark's numbers? Most of the time we are only putting two receivers split out and it was frequently only one receiver formations in the past. Up un...

re: TCU thrilled to have Diarse. - JohnnyU
[quote]Miles scared off three very good veteran receivers in the offseason[/quote] What's amazing is that they came to LSU in the first place. I've been an LSU fan since I was a small boy (I'm 66 now) and, if I had a grandson who was an 4 or 5 * WR recruit I would not have wanted him to go to LS...

TCU thrilled to have Diarse. - JohnnyU
Diarse only caught 3 passes his first two games with the Frogs but has had 13 in the last two and become a favored target of the TCU Qb, Hill. For perspective, he caught 28 passes in two years with the Tigers. ...

re: One thing hasn't changed! - JohnnyU
You guys are ignorant. The Twins are great supporters of Tiger athletics. His brother was a primary driver of getting the PMAC updated years ago. They were once part of the legendary Krewe of Ragoo. Great hosts and ambassadors for LSU at tailgates. They are both incredibly nice guys. ...

re: Is this the reality (Dodd article)? - JohnnyU
[quote]That's a dumb argument. It's all relative. Everyone else has similarly invested in the last 15 years.[/quote] No it's not. Saban laid out parts of his plan in his interview. He asked Emmert why LSU had such poor academic record with it's football program. He created the roadmap. LSU ...
