re: Who will be the most dissapointing team in the SEC? - LSU GrandDad
[quote] but LSU is being hyped like they are Alabama... and they will end up 3rd in the West, at best... and they still won't fire Les Miles. [/quote] us LSU fans, in general, deserve this treatment. I know I do. I was highly critical of Mark Richt. pretty much used the same words you used for se...

re: Why is Tennessee so important to the SEC? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Tennessee is an afterthought in today's college football landscape.[/quote] and ole miss has been an afterthought since the early 60's. at least UT won a Natty in '98 and has played for the SEC title in this millennium. you kids think the world started the day you were born and anythin...

[quote]when spurrier was looking to get back into college he went to UF first and foley tried to legit interview him and ask about his resume and whatnot, before he then told him to look in the trophy case. [/quote] I've heard the same thing. I think Spurrier didn't like foley much and if anyon...

re: What are your expectations for the OL? - LSU GrandDad
[quote] thought the same last year and was really dissapointed in their play in November[/quote] I think their run blocking was very good last year. it's hard for me to blame them for the problems against bama DL and also against ole miss. against arky, they were beat up all to hell. their pas...

re: What SEC school has the most built in advantages football wise? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Georgia and LSU, each are the only "major" program in states that produce more per capita NFL players than just about anyone else. [/quote] Louisiana is a much, much smaller state than Florida or Tejas. LSU cannot field a top team with only Louisiana recruits; there are simply not enough ...

[quote]I really hope our OL is better across the board this year.

re: Anything been done about Special Teams? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]The worst part of last year was kicking the ball out of bounds on the kickoff.

re: Will there always be an SEC Big 6? - LSU GrandDad
over the years, the big 6 have earned their ranking. in the long run, yes, that could change. but the other 8 in the SEC simply have not sustained excellence for a long period. and call Georgia non deserving is a crock. if some of you frickheads want to move up, earn it. ...

re: Here is why Devonta Smith isn't coming to LSU.... - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Fair enough.. Completely respect that decision. Some people just want to go out of state for school for a different experience.

re: Detiller - "season opener. Any concerns there" "No question. When you have - LSU GrandDad
Key is not the "key" to LSU stopping the running game of the teams that have awesome running attacks. and that usually includes Wisconsin but you know who in the SEC i'm talking about. Saban beats Miles with Miles own gameplan. wear down the front 7 and cram it down their throat. ditto with Arky...

re: The Offense Hasn't Been the Main Problem - LSU GrandDad
any way you slice it, all 3 of the teams need to be at a high level to win the SEC west. our defense was horrible at times last year and our special teams were horrible until the last few games (coverage and punting). our offense actually overcame that in the early part of the season but pretty much...
