re: Explain why the fans were storming out at half of an 11 point game? - Ace Midnight
It's the LSU Catch-22: IF it had been LSU 31 - SYR 3 at halftime? "Well, this is boring. Let's go." If it's LSU 28 - SYR 19 in the 4th? "Well, we're not watching this crap." So, it just doesn't matter. Until they start revoking/refunding TAF fees and season tickets for people who don't ...

re: Canada and Aranda - overrated? - Ace Midnight
I think it's fair to say Canada isn't a miracle worker. Aranda is proven. To be fair to both - the depth problems on both lines are really critical and the fault of neither....

re: Hannagriff starts at 11:15 - Ace Midnight
[quote]So then why in the flying frick did we give those dude a 12 mil buyout. [/quote] That was to protect Alleva more than O. Alleva knows his legacy is 100% on that coaching hire (he's dumb, but not that dumb) - so he wants to guarantee O gets "his" chance. ...

[quote]Why not move him back to defensive line since we have 0 depth there? [/quote] I don't care either way - he's got more value on either line than he does at TE, IMHO....

[quote]Unfortunately the "holes" are in positions that are really hard to fix in just one year. [/quote] Assuming all our young players are hits, we can have a solid 2-deep unit on both lines next year and elite in 2019. But, it will require 100% effort to build both lines....

[quote]Todd just said Will Clapp was good for us tonight. After that I cant take what this guy says seriously. [/quote] Honestly, I didn't see much of the first half - I think Will had a good second half. None of the OL got much praise for the first half....

Hanny: "It was 93 degrees when I left the studio today." McClure: "So, we need a dome?" :lol: We have to have something to laugh at when this is all over, right?...

re: Hannagriff starts at 11:15 - Ace Midnight
[quote] Hanna and Todd kinda went silent [/quote] Alleva has some say so in their jobs. I'm amazed Hanny is as negative as he is, but - like him or not, agree with him or not, but Hanny calls them like he sees him. I've always like Charles, even when I disagreed with him....

[quote]Can we add Todd to the shadow staff/ as a consultant the rest of the year? [/quote] I was skeptical about these former players being coaches, but McClure or Mawae would be a better OL coach than Grimes....

If O can't keep the effort and energy up, he has no value to the program - period. I say this as someone who wants him to do better, succeed and be our coach for a long time....

re: Hannagriff starts at 11:15 - Ace Midnight
[quote]What have they been doing until today? [/quote] Sometimes you can tell a young player something and he hears it and believe it, but doesn't really understand it or how to implement it until he sees it a few times. These reps will be valuable to the young guards as they mature. Very f...

re: Observation from Tiger Staduim - Ace Midnight
[quote]It was 2/3 full at the start and halfway full by the 4th quarter. [/quote] No way the lower bowl was half full early in the 4th quarter - maybe 1/3 - probably less. Syracuse fans were louder in the 4th quarter than LSU's fans were. Pathetic......

re: Canada is a total fraud - Ace Midnight
[quote]I said his hire was based off of one game vs Clemson, you take that game away and he's not very high on many people's radar.[/quote] He was the only OC Broyles finalist last year. I think he was a 1-year wonder, but let's be fair - he had a great year last year with Pitt's offense....

re: Why go to the game if you leave at the half? - Ace Midnight
They're trying to beat traffic. The game is either boring (LSU with a big lead) or "might as well be losing" (LSU in a close game and really needs the crowd). (These are actually reasons people will give with a straight face.) LSU has not been the hostile environment of old in about 10 year...
