re: Why does there appear to be talk about Fedora and Kingsbury at LSU? - Baloo
Fedora went 8-0 in the ACC regular season last year, and that's with a ton of off the field distractions. Fedora's certainly not my first choice, but he's a great Plan B option if Jimbo/Herman say no. He's a safety option. Kingsbury, OTOH, is just insane. That guy hasn't really done anything at ...

re: Interesting question on Herman on college sports nation - Baloo
Greg Ward isn't that good. He has a pretty lousy arm, and he still looks like the converted WR that he is. He's excelling almost solely because of the system. Also, Herman has a long track record of great offenses that didn't have Greg Ward at quarterback. ...

re: The case for Briles - Baloo
I hold a degree from Baylor (and LSU) and I find it repugnant than any school would consider hiring Art Briles. He, in the most friendly reading of the facts, willingly turned a blind eye to a massive structural criminal problem with his program. And, given Title IX laws, he didn't just open up the ...

re: Gomez now raking for Rangers - Baloo
Of course 366 is unsustainable. But his 291 average is certainly sustainable. And while he won't hit THIS many home runs, he does give the Rangers another legit power threat in the lineup. Also, short series and all. Anything can happen. ...

re: Athletes who died in their prime (or before) - Baloo
Len Bias Hank Gathers Valeri Kharlamov (33). Widely considered the greatest left wing on the Soviet team, his death in 1981 robbed him of a few more World Championships. The Mikhailov-Petrov-Kharlamov may be the greatest line in hockey history. He did in a car accident. ...

re: LSU Needs Home Run Hire but Competition Could Be Tough - Baloo
If Texas opens up, it's a different kettle of fish, but I think LSU is more attractive to Herman than USC. He already has loads of recruiting ties to Houston and Texas, and he won't have to re-establish relationships. The coaches he knows in Houston are in LSU's footprint. It's a much easier transit...

re: Can we all just agree to Support LSU's new Coach/ team for the rest of season - Baloo
I will always support LSU and root for them to win every game. If you were rooting against LSU before, we'll let bygones be bygones. Get back on board. But you should cheer for the Tigers regardless of who is the head coach. Unless we hire Art Briles. Then I'm out. ...

re: Best and Worst Finales? Updated with votes - Baloo
I thought the finale of Seinfeld was a betrayal of the ethos of the show: no lessons, no hugging. Instead, it makes the whole show a morality play. Worse yet, the episode was a clip show/greatest hits package. Six Feet Under is far and away the best. ...

re: Loss 100% on players. Not Miles. Not coaches. Not plays. Not fraud clock guy. - Baloo
Honestly, I thought Etling handled the final set of downs pretty well. LSU picked up a 1st down at the 13 with 54 seconds left and the clock ready to restart. At this point, you have to assume LSU has four plays left, limited by downs, not time. :54 1st down whistle/clock stopped This is where...

re: Legit Replacement Candidates for Les Miles - Baloo
I'd object to Jimbo on the same grounds as Petrino: I don't trust him as a human being. Florida St has had serious off the field issues that have largely been swept under the rug by a compliant local police department. I don't think he's a bad guy (and Petrino is), but I do think he turns a willfull...

re: Legit Replacement Candidates for Les Miles - Baloo
I would always rather get an up and comer than an "established" coach who will bail on a big time program. It's extremely rare to win a title at two schools, which is what makes Urban and Saban so special. But I don't want a guy who has already reached the plateau. I want a guy still hungry and clim...

re: Drive-By Truckers: American Band (First Listen) - Baloo
Counterpoint: ain't never gonna change. I do think its funny people are just noticing DBT is an extremely political band. They always have been. I haven't heard the new record yet, so I have no opinion on it other than I heard Cooley writes more songs on it, which is always a good thing. Cooley i...

re: Are music fans blinded by their fandom? - Baloo
[quote]I think more people are blinded by their nostalgia for music that they liked when they were an adolescent through college. But I have no way of proving that, but can only say based on posts on here and from people that I know IRL. [/quote] I think this is very true, but that also makes a l...
