re: Aranda, Allen, Moses - ffishstik
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...

re: Need 2 of 4 - ppr - forte, ware, Ingram, ajayi - ffishstik
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
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...

re: The announcers were really talking up the LSU job and the program - ffishstik
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 ...

re: T or F .The country is basically acting as if our season began with Orgeron. - ffishstik
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...

re: Kevin Steele defense - ffishstik
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 ...

re: How important is it to you that we keep Dave Aranda ? - ffishstik
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...

re: A strange situation could occur at the Iron bowl this year - ffishstik
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. That...

re: Sec Country: LSU/UF fact and fiction(long) - ffishstik
[quote]10. Fiction: Giving up a home game to play Florida will cost LSU millions Fact: The SEC has a new lost-revenue insurance policy that went into effect this year. LSU reportedly makes $3 million per home game, and insurance would cover that. It already has to account for one Florida home game...

re: Best case scenario for LSU - ffishstik
[quote]This scenario is ideal IF Tennessee miraculously beats aTm and Bama in back to back weeks[/quote] Truth, they only have to beat one and then have that team beat the other. If, say, UT beats A&M and A&M beats Bama, still works for LSU. Ole miss can still hand A&M a loss as well. ...

re: Best case scenario for LSU - ffishstik
This will absolutely screw LSU if they play it the week before the A&M game, no matter how they shuffle it. It forces them to lose the revenue from a home game (and screws the LSU ticket holders, btw), creates a murderer's row where they have to play Alabama at home then Arkansas, Florida and A&M on...

Best case scenario for LSU - ffishstik
Posted this on another thread then jumped on and saw all of the crazy posts, so putting it out there. Things aren't so bad and, frankly, LSU SHOULD refuse to play this game later in the year if it comes up again. Look at it this way: 1. Take it as another bye week. LSU is banged up as well and th...

re: Screw a coaching search!! - ffishstik
Honestly, every goal that LSU had at the beginning of the year, aside from going undefeated and probably Fournette for Heisman, are still in reach. In fact, LSU would likely have needed to run the table from this point forward anyway to make it to Atlanta. So, if Bebe and the boys can accomplish tha...

re: Emotions aside which is the better scenario for LSU? - ffishstik
2. Truth, the best scenario is that Miles gets his head out of his arse and gets his arse out of the way and lets someone else run the offense, but we've seen enough to know that it won't happen. I still think Les is a great guy and we should handle this in as classy a way as possible, but at this...
