re: Myles Brennon and maybe Artur Sitkowski - AlwysATgr
Thanks for the OP but shouldn't this be on the Recruiting Board?...

re: 72 years ago today - AlwysATgr
[quote]I just have to ask, what makes the so-called "Greatest Generation" any greater than those that fought in World War I or the Civil War? Or hell, what about the generation of 1776? Those men were pretty damn fantastic.[/quote] Comparisons like this leave me uneasy. For one who cherishes free...

re: Kroger / Rouses rumor? - AlwysATgr
I'm familiar with Publix (from years in FL), Rouses (from my time in LA), Krogers (NC and TX - there's also one in Suplhur just north of I-10), and HEB. My HEB (Fry Rd and Grand Pkwy in Katy) is the best grocery store in the world less the grackles that congregate there in the the evening. A go...

re: What was Poche's final stat line? - AlwysATgr
[quote]You posted in multiple threads that you were "scoring" the game. Sounds like you are just a fan who can't enjoy a fricking game. [/quote] Lighten up man. Lots of fans 'score' games. I can remember sitting in Wrigley in '73 as a kid watching the Braves (Hank, Garr, Evans, Niekro, Dave John...

re: Slade Bolden needs to be offered. - AlwysATgr
I'd be ok offering and would almost want to make it "mandatory" that he play both sports. Our baseball team gets lots of exposure and like Kramer's mom, every time he's on the field it'll get mentioned that he plays football as well. At some point in the future there will be a high-profile recrui...

re: List of QB's signed in the Les Miles era - AlwysATgr
[quote]For the record, ive repeatedly said Miles shouldve been fired at the end of 2015.[/quote] C'mon man. Why you gotta keep beating down Les? Give it a break. He's been gone for months. ETA: why do I keep seeing a picture of a Jacksonville State QB on an LSU site? That's what the picture sh...

re: List of QB's signed in the Les Miles era - AlwysATgr
[quote]Please name another 63 year old coach getting major job offers.  [/quote] How many are actively looking? And how many can whip out a resume comparable to his? If Les has the sterling resume you assert that he has then his age isn't a deal breaker. What overshadows all that Les ac...

re: List of QB's signed in the Les Miles era - AlwysATgr
Ricky, I commend you on your first three. I think they're pretty close to the root cause of Les's woes. But Les's troubles in finding a new gig have little to do with his age and more to do with the reputation he accrued here of being an egregious underachiever. Saban, Belichick, and Carroll a...

re: Brandon Harris to Transfer - AlwysATgr
Sorry to hear this. When someone comes to play for us I want them to be successful so it's disappointing. Best wishes to Brandon. Some don't understand when it's said that he wasn't put in a situation to be successful in. QB'ing demands playing with confidence, not being tentative. Part of that ...

re: Best athlete from LSU - AlwysATgr
When I think of "athleticism" I usually think of speed, quickness, strength, leaping ability (vertical), long jump, and the like. But I would also include reflexes and hand-eye coordination in some measure. Before my time, but from what others have shown, Billy Cannon makes a strong case. Few ot...

Why Was Charles McVay III (USS Indianapolis) Ashes Scattered at Bayou Liberty? - AlwysATgr
Watched the movie this weekend with family. Although I was familiar with the story they weren't. So I did a little reading about him and was surprised to learn that although he took his own life in Litchfield, CT, his ashes were scattered at Bayou Liberty (just west of Slidell). Anybody know wh...

re: Why Did Alleva Give-up on This Team? - AlwysATgr
Maybe that too is part of Joe's strategy. Let the program bottom out so that there will be zero expectations for success for a few years. How did we get to such a wretched state?...
