re: Imapct of the Evangel Trio - LSU GrandDad
[quote]I still can't believe that some of y'all take this so seriously[/quote] recruiting is the life blood of the program. as good as our recruiting rankings have been, we have been mediocre in recruiting certain positions, mainly the lines of scrimmage. coach O has certainly greatly improved ou...

re: Golf Board: Worst swing related advice you've ever heard someone say? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]the golf swing is literally an inclined baseball swing. exactly the same fundamentals. [/quote] not anywhere close. the body in a baseball swing is "in a barrel" and the swing is very compact. otherwise you couldn't even get around on a 90 MPH fastball. and of course the grip is completel...

re: Baylor associate AD was arrested after altercation with reporter - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Love nothing more than watching holier than thou organizations who do shitty things in the name of religion and status burn to the ground. [/quote] I do not like Baylor at all but this is really a biased statement. they are not "holier than thou" and they do not do "shitty things in the ...

re: Brennan Breaux...why isn't he a pitcher? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]I only casually follow baseball, but isn't he known for throwing his players under the bus to the media? So he's much worse than that in reality?[/quote] baseball, which is a team sport, is still a game played and determined by individuals. it is not unusual for one player to determine the...

re: My Bold Prediction for LSU Baseball - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Dunn's confidence in Pap allows our staff to throw consistent 2 strike "out" pitches in the dirt with RISP, and if he throws out 30% or better of attempted steals then those two combined are worth 100+ points and 25 RBI's at the plate. [/quote] probably 70+% of the people on this board do...

re: The vast majority of Arkansas fans approve of the job Bielema is doing - LSU GrandDad
[quote] He's just facing an uphill battle the whole way, so they're not going to be consistently dominant. Perhaps he will take them to the mountaintop. I wouldn't be surprised, at least no more so than I'd be surprised that a university in a deadly conference in a deadly division with mediocre-to...

re: I finally understand Alleva's logic re: coaching changes and hires - LSU GrandDad
I finally understand your post. it is not brilliant. in fact, it proves you don't know how anything works. changes coaches is not so simple and it is very expensive. one doesn't just sit behind a desk and push a button. and comparing the Miles situation with JJ is ludicrous. they are in no way even ...

re: David Feaster not the villain people make him out to be BAMA BANNED - LSU GrandDad
[quote]He may have made some good points but he came across as a bitter douche. [/quote] yea, he did. BUT, i'm reserving judgement because today's "media" records everything people say and repeat it out of context or in their own context to support their agenda. now, make no mistake, i'm not talk...

re: Saturday down south article on Harris. Enlightening - LSU GrandDad
[quote]agree but that still doesn't explain why Les refused to modify the system to fit the guy better. Sometimes you have to update the scheme with the times and he refused to do that. Which, to my point, is what i meant by putting them in a position not to succeed.[/quote] I do understand tha...

re: Saturday down south article on Harris. Enlightening - LSU GrandDad
[quote]but year after year of poor QB play tells you he wasn't putting these guys in a position to succeed.[/quote] QB in a pro style system is tough to learn. when high schools played it there were more successful ones in college. it still took a couple of years of college to get good at playing...

re: Brandon Harris to Transfer - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Wish he could've had some better coaching while here.[/quote] if there's one thing Cameron did at LSU was coach Brandon Harris. and so did his personal coach. if anything, he was overcoached. his problems on the field did not stem from coaching. he did not have a good pocket presence a...

re: Harris was going to have a fresh start with Canada - LSU GrandDad
Canada's been on board for a few weeks now. Harris waited to announce the transfer. I would be shocked if his decision did not come after talks with Canada (and Coach O). look, we fans don't know the behind the scenes stuff but i'm sure Canada watched lots and lots of LSU film with both Harris and E...
