re: Media picks are in - profwilson
[quote]just because we arent bowl eligible all of the 4 star and 5 star players on the roster arent going to be benched.[/quote] I agree with this (I know, cue Kige). The only danger would be that, if Ole Miss encounters a little early-season adversity, the players might pack it in because they ...

re: Phil Steele Dissing LSU Receiving CORP - profwilson
[quote]The fact is we have zero proven guys past Chark. The fact also remains those are some REALLY talented guys.[/quote] This is exactly right. If LSU goes 8-4 or worse this year, which could happen, it will NOT be because of the wide receivers. It will most likely be because of too many key ...

[quote]At the high end level it boils down to recruiting and recruiting at a high level for each position.[/quote] If this is true, then we will be fine with Orgeron. The one thing no one has ever knocked him for is his recruiting prowess. If everybody agrees that Orgeron is a great recruiter a...

re: A final desperation plea for the Sugar Bowl - profwilson
While I would really love for us to go to the Sugar Bowl, I'll be really surprised if it happens. Believe it or not, the committee is going to spend the vast majority of its time over the next week figuring out numbers 1-4. They will not spend too much time finely parsing the relative merits of 4-...

re: Well i guess the myth that lsu is great job is finally done. - profwilson
[quote]We just hired a coach that wasn't getting coordinator offers[/quote] I'm not a big fan of the Orgeron hire either, but I don't necessarily agree with this criticism. Coordinator and head coach require two different skill sets, and people who are good at one aren't necessarily good at the ...

re: How great would this be? - profwilson
Unfortunately, there is a VERY real chance that this happens. As we are finally learning, we can't money whip other big-time programs. If a place like Texas or Alabama wants to keep/attract a coordinator, we will NOT be able to outbid them--no matter how much we saved on our bargain bin head coach...

re: Parking and traffic tips for Bama Game. - profwilson
If you don't mind walking a little bit, park in one of the lots off Dalrymple by the LSU Lab School. There is a little traffic getting out of there after the game, but it's generally not too bad. We are usually--after staying until the end--out of that lot and onto I-10 West within one hour of the...

re: Serious question: Why was the LSU vs UF game rescheduled for Baton Rouge, rather - profwilson
Ok, so I'll take a shot at giving you an ACTUAL answer. After Florida decided not to play the game at any point during the October 8-9-10 period (people can decide for themselves whether that was a reasonable decision or not), there were no truly good alternatives left. Without moving the SEC Cham...

re: How does a blowout win over Missouri make LSU world beaters - profwilson
It's the only chance we've had to see what a post-Miles LSU team might look like, and it was very encouraging. There was a reason that everybody and his brother had LSU picked in their pre-season top 10--we have tremendous talent and considerable experience on both sides of the ball. With the rest...

Interesting recruiting stat - profwilson
From an ESPN article on the Miles firing: [quote]LSU is one of three schools to have a top-15 recruiting class every year since the ESPN 300 debuted in 2006. The other two schools are USC and Georgia.[/quote] It's ironic that all three of those schools have now replaced their coaches within th...
