re: If I'm a pitcher looking to have a long career, I don't go to Coastal Carolina - LSU GrandDad
[quote]His job is to win baseball games, not protect his pitcher's arms for the show.[/quote] this attitude is one of the primary reasons most high school pitchers choose the pros over college. college rosters are large enough not to ruin a kids arm. I will concede that some kids can throw man...

re: Would college baseball be more popular..... - LSU GrandDad
nah. Omaha is the mecca. and fans all over the country love it there. the new park is not very popular tho. it seems the wind blows in most of the time and it just kills extra base hits, esp HR's with today's bats. college baseball is more popular now than ever before. why doesn't it attract more...

re: Y.A. Tittle is the best QB to ever come out the SEC.. - LSU GrandDad
He was damn sure the toughest. :lol: yes, he was a great QB in the NFL; one of the best ever. I believe it impossible to accurately pick the "best" at any position. and comparing eras is also tricky. have you ever seen Unitas play. how about Starr, Stabler and others. they were some great QB...

re: What if Saban never left LSU - LSU GrandDad
[quote]greed. You are completely sane, as shown by Saban's lack of success in recruiting and winning at LSU. I mean, it's not like his recruits won a natty there and contributed at some level to a second. If they had, then your posts would be a symptom of a victim mentality. Saban was a mid-tier tal...

re: Can you rescend an offer? - LSU GrandDad
you are opening up a can of worms man. the skinny: if LSU adjusts and finds room for the new 5 star guy, it's OK. if Saban does it, it's evil. processing, ruining kids lives, etc i'm sure that there are some "hardball" being played. it's the nature of the beast at the top level schools. ...

re: List what you want to see in the opener. - LSU GrandDad
1) balanced attack. I hope we have enough points to let our passing game get reps 2) much improved coverage on punts and kick offs. we saw it at the end of last year and that has to continue 3) improved short to mid passing game execution. all three phases; blocking, passing and catching. 4) I w...

re: Reasons why A&M will beat LSU in 2016 - LSU GrandDad
[quote]they signed 0 DTs in the 2016 class and have none committed so far in 2017.[/quote] that's what happened after he was at LSU for a few years. also, linebackers weren't signing either. everyone knows to be a winner in the SEC you have to have dominant LOS's. I just don't see Sumlin maki...

re: What if Saban never left LSU - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Would he have had more success, less success or the same success at LSU [/quote] saban won the natty at LSU and basically turned very unhappy with college football. he lost a lot of his intensity in coaching and recruiting. in life, sometimes success does that in the short run. his eyes w...

re: Acceptable Pass vs Run ratio? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]As long as we keep defenses honest and guessing, I dont think the ratio should matter too much.

re: LSU losing to Coastal Carolina looking less bad - LSU GrandDad
some LSU fans are baseball snobs. because our program has had so much success we are supposed to be "better" than these schools few have even heard of. just like stoney brook, coastal Carolina was one heck of a scrappy team. they put constant pressure on our pitchers and defense until a error or...
