re: Does JJ cost Alleva his job? - ffishstik on 1/18/17 at 9:04 am
If so, at least one good thing came out of the hire. Sorry, but this dude was dead to me after Lester Earl and Alleva, who came from a basketball school, didn't have the sense and/or the balls to go after the best coach available rather than taking the easy approach of capitulating to the Dale and T...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Bama Plane at BTR - ffishstik on 1/17/17 at 2:06 pm
Purely from a talent standpoint, if LSU pulls in Phillips and Gay, that's an awesome job and losing Allen isn't as big. BUT, I really want this kid at LSU because he is from Baton Rouge. It would be a step in the right direction for getting that cocky sawed-off little prick out of our state. It woul...

Still say we need someone close to him whispering in his ear. "Nick, you're awesome! Greatest [i]college[/i] coach ever! You're no Belichik, you REALLY sucked in the NFL, but hey, nobody's perfect. Not everyone can handle the NFL, there's no shame in not measuring up at the highest level."...

I LIKE Les Miles, I really do. I would have much preferred for him to retire than to be fired, but it was past time for him to move on as the Head Coach and I just don't see him as an AD. I hope he does well and would love to see him succeed with ESPN....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

He'll be another high profile LSU alum killing it in the NFL. That can only help the Tigers, especially when paired with the image overhaul that I think we're about to get with the new staff. On Saturday you see the Tigers dominating on the field and having fun doing it with former NFL players in th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Aranda, Allen, Moses - ffishstik on 11/30/16 at 9:17 pm
People in general don't like uncertainty. Firing Miles, even if it was the right move, was going to have a negative impact on recruiting for this class. I'm not overly concerned, this staff will absolutely get it done and there is more than enough time to bring in what will still be a great class. I...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Need 2 of 4 - ppr - forte, ware, Ingram, ajayi - ffishstik on 11/29/16 at 11:16 pm
Ware and Forte without hesitation. Indy's defense is abysmal and Forte should be huge. Ware put up respectable numbers against a great Denver D last week, and the Falcon's run defense is one of the worst in the league. Ingram has looked a lot better, but it is still the Saints offense. They will...

re: ATTN: Random LSU Hero re: Tom Herman - ffishstik on 11/15/16 at 9:27 pm
I hope that it is true and that he is out of the running. IF the rationale for hiring Tom Herman was that we want a proven coach, I still don't see where Herman is any better than what we already have. He's done ok, but he's dropped games this season against teams that they should have beaten and st...

Ok, I'll play devil's advocate here. I understand that LSU should be able to lure almost any coach to Baton Rouge, but honestly, what are you looking for in a coach? The big things are: Can he recruit the state? Can he recruit nationally? Can he consistently win in the SEC? Can he win the big ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

True, and I've actually made that part of my argument on why LSU is primed to leapfrog other potential playoff teams with 2 losses and possibly a team with only one loss. It will be tight, but I believe this team will be in the playoff if they win out and Bama beats Auburn. Ironically, Bama is one o...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Kevin Steele defense - ffishstik on 11/2/16 at 7:50 am
and it doesn't hurt that they actually have an offense that keeps the defense off of the field occasionally. Aranda's defense is going to be insanely good here. Since coach O took over, I think the only time that they've spent too much time on the field is when the new offense scored 3 TDs in 7 ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

It is one of many reasons why I want Coach O to be the main guy next year. IF they win out with this group, I would be perfectly happy to see this staff remain intact for next year. Hell, I would even be ok with keeping Peveto if they win out. I don't know what the love affair is with Herman, ho...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

It would be intriguing on the playoff front if that were to happen. I really wanted A&M to beat Bama for this reason; A&M doesn't have the same amount of love nationally and they would not be as compelled to place a one loss A&M team ahead of an SEC Champ LSU as they would a one loss Bama team.
