re: Interesting recruiting stat - profwilson
True. Also shows the importance of player development and of recruiting depth in the trenches (not just stockpiling 4 and 5-star skill position players)....

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...

re: ESPN: Predicting November Headlines - profwilson
[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...

re: LSU not ranked by ESPN as one of 8 "Blue-Blood" CFB Programs - profwilson
I think it's just about right. We're a top-10 all-time program, but just a notch behind the elite of the elite. Two or three playoff appearances over the next decade (coupled with Nebraska's ongoing irrelevance) would vault us into that top group....

re: Where is everyone staying in Green Bay? - profwilson
Staying at the Hampton Inn Green Bay Downtown. It's right next door to the Hyatt, and apparently supposed to be pretty nice. I'm using points for the stay--cash price would have been $475 per night. Ouch!...

re: Walk-on punter Bailey Raborn arrested for OWI - profwilson
This is obviously a stupid decision on his part, and merits some suspension as punishment. That said, unless he injured someone and/or is in line for jail time, it should not be a career-ender. Suspending him for more than a few games would seem to be an overreaction, unless there's more to the st...

re: Will there be a drop off in support next year? - profwilson
It will be interesting to see what kind of LSU turnout we get for the game up in Green Bay. For most LSU fans, going up there means plane tickets, secondary market game tickets, a couple of nights in an overpriced hotel room, a car rental, meals, etc. All in all, for two people, you're probably ta...

re: Question for Vegas gurus - profwilson
According to this site, 67% of the money has gone on LSU. Despite this, the books have not adjusted the line downward. Generally speaking, that does not bode well. It suggests that they are content to have more money come in on LSU. [link=(http://www.scoresandodds.com/casinogrid.html)]Vegas od...
