re: Did LSU fans feel slighted when Paul Dietzel bolted for Army & later USCe? - dimet on 1/22/17 at 9:20 am
Yes. He swore that he would never leave LSU. Talk to some of his former players about the loss they felt. He did have a very strong connection to Army from his time there with Red Blaik and they were going through an extremely difficult time at West Point with the academic scandal. West Point needed...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Look into his family history. Abuse, neglect, isolation can all lead to this behavior. This behavior may not be your normal but it seems to be your child's normal. Have him evaluated by a behavior therapist and see what the results are. I applaud you for your willingness to foster a child...brave, k...

re: Why was Canada fired from NC State? - dimet on 12/14/16 at 8:50 pm
Debbie Yow, the AD at NCSU, needed to appease some of the powers that be. She told Doeren to fire Canada to achieve that goal. They had some slip ups and Jacobey Brissett had plateaued a bit but they had some serious injuries to their best RB's. Canada was on VACATION when he got the call. As a frie...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

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". ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

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 '...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

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.
