re: Etling did indeed have back surgery - LSU GrandDad
[quote]So now we are starting the 3rd string qb from a 3-9 purdue team who is coming off back surgery. [/quote] some of you people are asshats. yes, he WAS not the starter at Purdue. but, he WAS competing for the job and very well could have earned it had he not transferred. AND, he actually DID ...

re: Lindsey Scott will score LSU TD's against anyone, LSU owes him an opportunity - LSU GrandDad
[quote]This is unacceptable, given that Scott was promised a real opportunity and has shown in just a few reps that he can be a difference maker, with his feet or arm. [/quote] how do you know this? I mean, these coaches see him at every practice and Canada came here with no axe to grind and th...

re: Ed O Post-Spring Game Presser: Long overdue candor from a HC - LSU GrandDad
[quote]If you can't get your team prepared to practice, why should fans think you can get them prepared to compete to win in the SEC?[/quote] I would probably get fired answering this question.

re: I understand why some of you want CPM fired, I really do. - LSU GrandDad
I mostly agree with everything you said poncho. our pitching lost this series but it would have been our hitting had our pitching done well. opposing pitchers from UNO to McNeese to every weekend pitcher not from UGA have feasted on our ineptitude at the plate. we seem to have faced great starte...

re: Our Hitting Has Got to Improve - LSU GrandDad
we live off of "seeing eye" singles with an occasional homer and even more rare knock in a gap. it's hard to tell what pitches we hit but it looks to me that they ain't off speed pitches, esp curves or sliders. i'm afraid the book on our hitters is widespread and we can't hit breaking stuff. ...

our Offensive Line looked shaky - LSU GrandDad
I saw some good holes opened up by the purple team but the white team struggled. I saw some poor pass blocking by both lines. maybe we just don't have enough guys for two complete lines but poor pass protection has been a problem for awhile. any thoughts? hell, we didn't get to see much....
