re: Forget OC, our first hire needs to be that strength coach from Bama - Hoya Saxa on 11/27/16 at 5:19 pm
After the UF game it was obvious that LSU's O-line needs more strength. They were getting pushed back in the final goal line drive. I remember being in the stadium when LSU held Notre Dame there for four downs only six inches from the goal in that same spot in 1971. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Atlanta, Memphis, or New Orleans for nominally neutral sites with good air access. Dallas, St. Louis, or Louisville would be good neutral cities. Lots of good options not on Bama's doorstep. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
