re: Pitt Fan's Thoughts on Matt Canada (LSU related) - dimet
It was more of a personality conflict between Doren and Canada. NCSU had some personnel issues that Canada could not address even with Jacoby Brissette. As my friend said when he was hired by Pitt, 24 hours after being let go by NCSU, "He didn't stay fired long". ...

re: Great Example of LSU Good Ole Boy Network Re: Stovall Firing - dimet
We keep forgetting that Coach Stovall was never the real choice for LSU football. He was this "stop gap" measure put in place by Paul Dietzel. He was never truly given any chance to succeed as in that time, assistant coaches were hired on 1 year contracts. All of his assistants until Coach Nix in '...

re: fedora would be an absolute disaster at LSU - dimet
Fedora is a good coach. Is he that "walk on water", "sure thing" kinda guy...absolutely not. He's Mike Gundy with a beard. Offense will be the strong suit but his teams always find a way to lose 1-3 games a year without reason. They just get out played. He is not a home run hire......

re: Goodnight H. Lawrence Fedora - dimet
David Cutcliffe is one of the few guys in college football who's seen it all...he's as smart and clever as they come on a football field. HS coaches here in NC love him as he comes into their office as one of them...no ego, no pretense...just a good, smart man. Would do wonders with major talent....

re: PETE Jenkins factor - dimet
Understand that Pete Jenkins has created a system of D-line play. Watch d-linemen when they attack the offensive LOS. Coach Jenkins has taught a technique that is the MO for defensive linemen. He's truly one of the greatest d-line coaches ever......

re: So Cameron's playbook didn't have quick slants or "easy passes" - dimet
The difference between last night and the previous nights was that the play did not run through Coach Miles. I would find it difficult to have to run a play through someone for approval every down, every series, every game. Time management difficulties can be attributed to being forced to come up wi...

re: Someone educate me on Sam Nader - dimet
Sam Nader started as the TE coach for Coach McClendon. If you ever watch vintage Tiger film from the late 70's, Coach Nader is the man signaling in plays/formations with the groovy red sweat bands. An absolute gentleman...was Coach Stovall's and Coach Arnsparger's recruiting coordinator. Just a terr...

re: I Want To Know About This D-Line Hire... - dimet
Pete Jenkins was initially hired by Coach Stovall to coach the Dline. He is an icon among dline coaches. Techniques he devised are in play today. There truly is a school of d-line coaches that are Jenkins acolytes. Start in 1980 and go through the Archer tenure and a while for Coach Saban and if the...

re: The problem is Cam - and here's proof - dimet
Coach Cameron is on a very short leash. The calls are relayed through Coach Miles only then approves or disapproves. We can scream all we want about the calls but if one looks at Cameron's system in the NFL, his RB's all were utilized to a greater extent than they are here. It really is a shame that...

re: Why are we subsidizing dumb poor people to have kids? - dimet
We are in the era of entitlement...rich, poor, all ethnicities. I teach...I've taught for 31 years. I have students who make me feel very optimistic about the future. And there are some I worry about. We scream about food stamps and kids and the other stuff. But I have students that come from 200K i...

re: Obama lying - dimet
What President Obama has done is pull the bandaid off quickly. I find it astute and appropriate that the leader of the free world speak with a measured, thoughtful dialogue. We ain't all white and middle class. The sad thing about this is that we are all in this boat together and we need to be rowin...

re: LSU/Tulane 1984 Fight Night - dimet
James White started the rhubarb. There was a bit of pushin' and shovin' and James didn't appreciate it and let loose with a kick after the PAT. The Tulane player with his helmet off is Richard Williams. In the tunnel after the game, Coach Arnsparger stated "we won the game and we won the fight". Abo...

re: Hokie Gajan, beloved former Saints & LSU player, dies at 56 - dimet
Hokie was a great athlete coming out of Baker. I played against him in high school and later at LSU. I remember seeing as an equal to both Leroid Jones, a 9.5, and LeRoyal Jones, 24 foot LJ'er in HS. Baker was LOADED that year with the Jones' brothers, Hokie, Tremaine Johnson and Terry Davis. Studs ...

re: Still looking after all these years, any tape of end of 1984 Tulane game fight? - dimet
It was on the kicking reel of the game film. Offense, defense and kicking reel were the film watched at the time. It was sent to a former coach who had moved to the pros when Coach Arnsparger was hired. I wonder if he still has it! I'm certain LSU has it in their archives. Shawn Burks and Darryl Day...

re: Serious Question for LSU fans - dimet
3 man surface with the Sam backer providing the 4th rusher. Loved man coverage which caused some issues with LB coverage. DLineman read the run on the way to the QB. Seemed much more prone to man coverages than zone...maybe because his CB's could run......

re: Ruffin McNeill out at East Carolina - dimet
Great guy...his staff did more to develop 1 and 2 star players than any staff in NC. Great recruiter and a man that wanted, truly wanted, to be at ECU. He lost his starting QB the 1st week of summer camp and played the rest of the year with a 2 completely non-descript QB's running his offense. Linco...

re: 30 for 30: Bo Rein..."The Bo you don't know " LSU Football coach for 42 days. - dimet
Coach Stovall retained every one of Coach Rein's assistants. That staff remained intact for the first 2 years of Coach Stovall's tenure until Greg Williams, the DC, Bobby Morrison, the LB coach and Bob Gatling, the OC, were dismissed following the 1981 season. During the 1981 season, Coach Stovall h...

re: Success Academy (NYC Charter School) doing WORK - dimet
Public schools are being asked to become the Swiss Army knife of society. Politicians, from both sides, have incentivized the programs or courses of study or areas of concentration only to have it fall out of favor next year. With this change comes more money down the tubes, more children left stagn...
