re: Debate Settled: Tyrann Mathieu was a consensus 3-star - LSUFreek
Prior to him committing, he was a "consensus" 3-star. After Rivals upgraded him to a 4-star, then he became a "composite" 3-star....

re: Debate Settled: Tyrann Mathieu was a consensus 3-star - LSUFreek
[quote]He was ranked as a 4* after he camped at Tennessee I think[/quote] Technically, you are not wrong. But more accurately, he was changed from a 3* to a 4* by only one recruiting service [b]after he committed[/b] to LSU. It's in my OP....

re: Debate Settled: Tyrann Mathieu was a consensus 3-star - LSUFreek
[quote]It had more to do with his camp circuit[/quote] No doubt. Barton Simmons was at the Tenn camp and I think Rivals would have eventually upgraded him based on [link=(http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/lsu-recruiting/barton-simmons-take-on-matthieu/14319179/)]Barton's evaluation[/link]. ...

Debate Settled: Tyrann Mathieu was a consensus 3-star - LSUFreek
...before he committed to LSU. I went back [b]1297 pages[/b] on the Recruiting Board to [b]July 22nd, 2009[/b], the day Mathieu committed. He was a [b]consensus[/b] [b]3 star[/b] on Rivals, Scout & ESPN and some RB posters were freaking out there wouldn't be spots left for [link=(http://www.ti...

re: Scout.com in financial trouble - LSUFreek
Good for those dicks. I was in (what turned out to be a brief) financial crisis two years ago and I had to cut a lot of "luxury" expenses, one of them being a Scout subscription. When I called to cancel, I was told I was one day late on the annual renewal date. I asked if they can work with me...

Anybody else worried Guice will hurt himself? (running-style) - LSUFreek
I love Guice and he makes some amazing "I-can't-believe-he-is-still-not-down" plays. But when he goes down, he goes down hard and awkward. Usually it is because of his spin move which he can do multiple times during the same run. While it breaks arm tackles and gets him extra yards, when ...

re: Cam Akers a twin of Spencer Ware - LSUFreek
Similar in terms of Spencer's solid frame/build, but Cam has much better speed, agility, quickness and acceleration, imo. Spencer was very athletic and a multi-sport athlete in HS but ran a 4.62. Worst forty time was 4.72. He has very little lateral agility. Akers runs an estimated 4.4 (and it...

re: RIP to Recruiting Board Legend Joe McKnight - LSUFreek
Dude could return a KO for a TD. Make an INT and return it for a TD. Then take a handoff at the 20 and return it for a TD. It's why it stung so much for me when he rejected LSU. He was a Louisiana legend. Didn't have the college career or NFL career I thought he should've had, but in HS, he ...

re: Update on Jacoby Stephens, # 1 Safety... - LSUFreek
[quote]What makes you guys say his motor isn't always at 100%? [/quote] The HS games I watched, he plays both ways, offense and defense, so he conserves a lot of energy. When on defense, he only puts an effort into the guy he is covering. When the ball is say, ran to his side, he doesn't attem...

re: Now that the regular season is over: A comparison of Harris and Etling - LSUFreek
[quote]Screw the statistical comparisons....a lot is because of the intangibles[/quote] I agree. In Etling's first game, he [b]audibled[/b] at the goal line for a TD. Before that, I'd forgotten what an audible looked like at LSU. It was nice to see Etling drop a shoulder against an outside ...

re: Check in if you're cool with Ingram. - LSUFreek
[quote]Maybe its been the fact we have had a HOF QB who converts 71% of his passes and gets 1st downs like no tomorrow. [/quote] That's a nice fall back. Not a gameplan. Payton would prefer to have a ground game that produce more than 2000 yards. He is more effective with a balanced offense. ...
