re: Can everyone forget about this Tom Herman crap remember - profwilson
[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: LSU @ #19 In Coaches Poll - profwilson
[quote]LSU would beat the shite out of 12 of the teams ranked ahead of them[/quote] I tend to agree. I think LSU would be favored by at least a touchdown on a neutral field against all of the following: Nebraska Baylor West Virginia Florida State Boise State Florida Oklahoma Utah Tenn...

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: Piped in Music is killing the Tiger Stadium atmosphere - profwilson
[quote]That music is what the players and the students like to hear.[/quote] You mean the students who apparently love it so much that they leave at the earliest opportunity? Look, the great thing about the classic Tiger Band music is that it unites fans across generational, racial, and socioeco...

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...

re: Being average is LSUs oldest tradition. - profwilson
In order to even the all-time series record with LSU, Ole Miss would have to win every game between now and 2034. LSU has won 11 SEC championships to Ole Miss's 6. LSU has 3 national championships to Ole Miss's 0. LSU has outperformed Ole Miss, based on cumulative AP poll rankings, in each of the...

[quote]Change this to 2 games. Loss to Bama at home and any other game, minus a playoff or SEC Champ game, and he is gone. [/quote] There is no way that this happens. We will not fire an 11-2 coach with a team that would be top-10 in the nation. We would be crucified in the national media. I...

re: Sirius College Sports channel has gotten pretty bad - profwilson
Yes, the "Camp Tour" segments get pretty old. There are only so many times you can hear about how amazing everybody's facilities are and how every program in the country is "on the way up." Each one of the stops is basically an extended infomercial for the program in question. The interviews aren...
