re: Jake Holland award AKA worst starter on your team - thunderbird1100
[quote]You are right. Minter played in many different configurations that year. Given that we played mostly nickel all year because you don't ever sit the badger, the point is the production out of the mlb spot was about 40-50% higher than what Welter gave, which is consistent during the Chief's ten...

[quote]This is a good time to point out that Baker and Minter both played MLB. [/quote] It was actually Karnell Hatcher and Kevin Minter at MLB in 2011. Yes, Chavis still had a slight hard on for Karnell Hatcher, for whatever reason...and didn't let Minter really take the reigns till later in ...

re: Jake Holland award AKA worst starter on your team - thunderbird1100
[quote]Ryan Baker started 13/14 games. Stefan Francois started 10/14. Kevin Minter started 11/14 games. [/quote] Minter was splitting snaps that year, hence why he only started 11 of the 14 games, and probably only got about 60% of snaps each game....

re: Jake Holland award AKA worst starter on your team - thunderbird1100
[quote]Yeah, because two people split time there. Guess how many solo tackles they had together? 44. Again, I actually watch the games so I'm at a distinct advantage in this argument. Just trust me.[/quote] Seriously, it was painful watching Welter the last 2 years. One of those players when in...

re: Jake Holland award AKA worst starter on your team - thunderbird1100
[quote]Again, I'm not saying Welter was even above average. I'm merely stating that he was not as bad as y'all want him made out to be, certainly not the worst player on the LSU squad in 2014. [/quote] I'd put him right down there with Jennings. He was absolutely miserable. Easily the worst LB a...

re: Jake Holland award AKA worst starter on your team - thunderbird1100
[quote]Minter was an all-SEC LB and a second round pick. I'm not saying Welter was a stud, I'm just saying he was more than serviceable. The worst player on LSU's 2014 team was Anthony Jennings, bar none. [/quote] I dont think you understand the difference in 55 and 25 solo tackles by ...

re: 2017 5* OLB/RB Dylan Moses decommits from LSU - thunderbird1100
[quote]I'm sorry, maybe he mistakenly mentioned "doing what's expected" of him twice in his message? [/quote] Because he grew up around LSU and his family is all LSU, it's expected that kids go to LSU in that situation, not hard to pick up on. That doesnt mean they pressured him to commit t...

[quote]He could want to and be pressured. I don't understand the backlash im getting for a pretty normal comment. [/quote] Because you're just speculating and trying to stir up shite in reality. You act like a gun was held to his head as a 14 year old to commit to LSU or else. LSU was his dream ...

[quote]In 2013, Welter had 80 total tackles, 4.0 TFL, and 2.0 sacks in 13 games, which are pretty solid numbers for an SEC linebacker. [/quote] Stats hardly tell the story here, he was late getting to the ball carrier COUNTLESS times. Only 25 of those tackles were solo. By comparison, Minter the...

re: Jake Holland award AKA worst starter on your team - thunderbird1100
Really tough to say not knowing how the new starters will look but if I had to pick a returning guy it would be Lamar Louis - not sure if he'll even start again but he's the definition of average at best....

[quote]He made it clear that he had done what was "expected of him" ... Not saying LSU isn't the favorite, just that he clearly wasn't ready so he was pressured by someone, probably his family. I'm sure he got a lot of pressure from family, friends. Community, and LSU. [/quote] He was in the 8th...

re: 2017 5* OLB/RB Dylan Moses decommits from LSU - thunderbird1100
Hoping this is just an attention thing. Being committed so long takes a lot of interest away from other places, and it's not the same recruiting process. Certainly would like for him to help recruit for the 2017 class being the #1 overall player, but it looks like he'll be a NSD decision now. No ...
