re: Who in the media will hold Les Miles accountable? - engl6914
I think the best thing we can do is just chill. Yeah, it was a disaster, and Miles contributed to it, and so did some players. But it's the kind of thing that just happens sometimes, in football or war. The best we all can do, including us, players and coaches, is to just put it behind us and not...

re: Why not try another QB? - engl6914
Well, it's kinda like leaving someone out on the mound who can't throw strikes anymore, is getting hit and getting frustrated. The more he throws, the worse it gets. Baseball managers don't have problems changing pitchers. I honestly don't understand not trying Harris. We had nothing to lose and...

re: They Seem Pretty Confident On Tidefans - engl6914
Count me as another banned from Tidefans. I got an undergrad degree from LSU and graduate degree from Alabama. No matter. Though I was listed as an Ala fan from when I first signed on I made a comment they thought too slanted toward LSU. I was then labeled an LSU fan and banned. They have no cursing...

re: So the vols ran for 181 yards on Bama? - engl6914
[quote]ready4something So the vols ran for 181 yards on Bama? Saban is gonna stack the line and dare Jennings to throw. [/quote] Ole Miss didn't stack the line against us. Jennings isn't a real passer, but the passing plays are called just often enough and he passes just well enough to kee...

re: Experience Matters - Please be Patient - engl6914
We've been through a year like this before. My first game at Tiger Stadium was Miss State in 1960. The year before we were 9-2, then a whole slew of seniors graduated, and in 1960 we went 5-6-1. The whole team were sophomores (freshmen couldn't play.) The next year, 1961, with experience we went...

re: Harris will be what Perrilloux could've been - engl6914
I've thought the best talent I've ever seen come through Baton Rouge since 1960 when I saw my first game were Casanova, Cecil Collins, Ryan Perrilloux, and Tyran Mathieu. This Harris may belong to that group. We'll know a lot more after Saturday's Auburn game. This kid just seems to have a feel f...

re: What seems so special about Brandon Harris.. - engl6914
I'm reminded of the Bernard Malamud novel, The Natural, and the movie version with Robert Redford. The down and out team, and then the introduction of one player who seems to be able to do anything he wants. We'll see if this is true after we see how he handles what Auburn has in store for him....

re: Les Miles demeanor today - Thoughts? - engl6914
[quote]Jennings got a lot of cred after a great second half against Wisconsin and Harris was truly struggling to pick up the offense from everything we've heard. [/quote] This, too, is part of the problem. Where was Harris struggling to pick up the offense? I haven't seen him struggle in the le...

re: Les Miles demeanor today - Thoughts? - engl6914
[quote]Seems like Les was a little down today. He seemed annoyed. In the past, he is usually up beat, full of energy at his Monday press the week of a big game. Got a feeling he is tired of the LSU fanbase[/quote] I'll tell you why he's down. He spent the whole of spring and fall practice arrang...

re: Are we seeing a change in coach Les Miles? - engl6914
I'm thinking of the 2011 Bama game in Tuscaloosa--the one we won 9-6. Jarrett Lee threw two interceptions, almost costing us the game. Miles took him out and the young man hardly took another snap as a Tiger. Jennings committed three turnovers in a short period of time. So, no, this isn't out ...

re: Anyone consider putting the OLine under pressure was the goal last night? - engl6914
The answer to the original question is "yes"--the offensive line and the runners were put into the Power I and assigned to win the game. The early dropped passes and the interception led to the decision. This is the Big Cat drill brought into the game. Miles wants every opponent to know we can do th...

re: Why does the Offensive Line seem to be underperforming? - engl6914
UL Monroe was known to be a good defensive team and played like it. Had we not dropped some of the early passes the first half would have been better for us offensively. However, we were predicted to win by 31 points and won by 31 points. The coaches chose to wear down Monroe, and did. It was a grin...

re: Les Miles is the most successful coach in LSU football history! - engl6914
If I had to pick right now between Miles and Saban I would take Miles. I like guys who work off of intuition. He's one of the great recruiters and makes a powerful presence in a living room with a prospect's parents (I know Steven Ridley's mom). He is the well respected leader. He is Coach....

re: Your Experience with Wisconsin Fans - engl6914
I sat in the Wisconsin section. Best mannered people I 've been around in a stadium. Nobody snarled about bad calls or the play of their QB or how weak the coaching was. It was a nice experience, and I would enjoy them as a traditional year to year opponent. They're looking forward to playing us aga...

re: LSU No. 8 - College Football’s 10 Most Iconic Uniforms (CollegeSpun.com) - engl6914
The article concerns uniforms as an icon, meaning widely recognized teams easily identified by their uniforms and that those uniforms have a traditional classic look. But there are other teams having great uniforms--I think Ole Miss has the best uniforms in the SEC, hands down, and better than the F...

re: Who is your favorite football Tiger of all time? - engl6914
My favorite is the best--Tommy Casanova. Could play both ways, All American. Outstanding character. And he went through medical school and residency while playing for the Bengals. Except for him I don't think that's ever been accomplished or even attempted. I'm a physician and am just agog at t...

re: LSU vs. Bama 2011 = 42 NFL Draft Picks - engl6914
I was there sitting in the middle of the Alabama fans. The best game I have ever seen at any level, live or TV. On most plays as the offensive team broke the huddle everyone went to their feet. Like fine cognac. Walking out of BDS it was like a tomb; tens of thousands coming down the ramp and on...

re: Don't mean to anger anyone with this but I have a question regarding Saban. - engl6914
It was Emmert who got Saban. Dean wanted to keep Dinardo for the sake of having some consistency at the coach position; we had gone through Archer, Hallman, and Dinardo and the last year under Dinardo we were the pits. One bad event on the field and the whole effort would collapse. Emmert, perhap...
