re: Anyone else think that Brandon Harris starts Saturday? - engl6914
Because Coach's job is threatened I think we will see Etling start. Coach Miles's job being threatened changes everything. Without the job being threatened I'm not sure we would have ever seen Etling. I really hate seeming cynical, but that Jefferson/Lee thing left its brand on me. It would ...

re: Pump the brakes on Etling - engl6914
[quote]Gordy Rush said on Thursday show that DE does a a better job avoiding rush, stepping up in pocket and going through his progressions than Harris. Based that on his viewing of practices and scrimmages. We all saw same thing sat night. [/quote] The puzzle I'm trying to solve is the a...

re: Is Harris Salvageable? - engl6914
One of the principle teachings to a quarterback is for him to decide, before he arrives at center, what he is going to do if he is pressured by a defender. For whatever reason, Harris has not been taught or has not learned this. I say this after watching our last play yesterday, and many other pla...

re: How horrible would removing kickoffs be? - engl6914
I say eliminate the punt. The most exciting moment in football occurs when the offensive team breaks the huddle and comes up to the line for a fourth down play. That play would occur over and over again...

re: LSU will beat ALA - end of discussion - engl6914
Alabama has lost a game and LSU has not. Does that mean anything to anyone? And Alabama almost lost yesterday to UT, at home. There's not a team out there that can stop our offense now that Harris has learned his position. Our QB, running backs, receivers, and offensive line will be the differen...

re: Playing in BDS - engl6914
If you've ever been to BDS or Legion Field when we win it's an experience you'll never, ever forget. Coming down the ramps after the game, tens of thousands of people moving down, and NOT A SOUND! I was talking to my date, and then she nudged me and said "Dumb ass, listen. Your voice is carrying ...

re: Rap Music in Tiger Stadium - engl6914
Two years ago I was at Bryant-Denny to watch our game, and the rap being played before the game and at half was loud, irritating, and just destroyed my mood. I've been to BDS and Legion Field many times to watch us play, and I enjoy the atmosphere, but that rap was just bad. I said you'd never hea...

re: One play that is being overlooked. - engl6914
I saw the play. If he's second string I'm thinking of four years ago when we had a second string defensive lineman (I think an end) who was first on the team with tackles for loss. That's what's called depth. This team is the 2011 team brought back to life, except this time we have a quarterback ...

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 ...
