re: Whats the perfect offense for LSU? - Scoob
Count me among the pro style fans. We have the skill players to excel in it, and as we've seen this season, all you need is an average QB in terms of ability. The key to any offense will be the offensive line. Changing schemes won't hide the fact that our line can't play with Alabama's. If O...

re: Louisville Rushing Defense - Scoob
It's going to be a high-scoring game. I think Guice (and Fournette, if he plays) are capable of enough big plays, that even if we get behind, we won't abandon the run. The team I compare Louisville to the most is Ole Miss; not record, not actual play-calling, but potential. Remember, Ole Miss wa...

re: Why did Guice get so many carries late against A&M? - Scoob
I don't think it had anything to do with rewarding the player. Fournette against Ole Miss, we had pulled ahead and put them away. Guice was killing the clock acceptably, decent yards. Guice against A&M- while I thought it was too many carries and risked an injury, I understood it. The last cou...

re: Why is Les Miles name the most mentioned for most coaching vacancy? - Scoob
[quote]After his tenure at LSU and his release after a dismal start to 2016 season.[/quote]Wow. Best record in LSU history and a BCS title, with another appearance in the big game, during his tenure... and you think this is a negative? Remember, his worst full season here was still 8-5. 2016, he...

re: Conference title games may be on the way out. - Scoob
I could see it being phased out. The SEC game is an annual sellout, but the ACC, for example, looked like the upper decks were mostly empty. Teams risked injury, maybe to key players, and for what? SEC- irrelevant. Alabama was going in. ACC- risked missing out on the playoffs, if Clemson wou...

re: Fuente didn't even get a call or interview - Scoob
[quote]Have you checked out his buyout? [/quote]We ponied up $10 mil to get rid of Miles, who was "only" a guaranteed 8 to 11 wins every season, and who continually brought in top talent (other than QB). So with that as precedent, why are we now so worried about pinching pennies? I'm getting...

re: Briles and Aranda would be unbelievable - Scoob
[quote]Look it doesn't matter what Briles did or didn't do. But I can guarantee if LSU hired him and went on a championship run or needed the committee to pull for us, then ALL ESPN would talk about was rape stuff 24/7. [/quote]Well, to be fair, all they currently do is talk bad about our adm...

re: Does LSU have a realistic shot at playoff next year - Scoob
[quote]we have a better chance than all but.. maybe 5 teams.. [/quote]nope[quote]it's going to take some actual above average play at QB. and we'll need White and (I guess) Alexander to step up big time at linebacker. (barring a miracle the ILB won't be better than Riley/Beckwith). Safety is going...

re: Predict what we will be complaining/excited about one year from Today. - Scoob
This time next year, we'll be complaining about a loss to Alabama, Florida, Ole Miss, Tennessee, losing Aranda, and if Kiffin is the OC, losing Kiffin. Also complaining about how Jimbo has Fla St rolling at 11-1 and was worth it, and that Herman has Texas at 9-3 and "turning the corner". ...

re: Les Miles landing spot? - Scoob
I'm not too sure Miles is in a big hurry to land another job. Despite all the bitching, he had a hell of a career at LSU (a national title, of which we only have 3 in our history; and the highest winning percentage). He's nearing 65, his kids are in college now, he was making good money for awhile, ...

re: Guns every gun owner should have - Scoob
My take as must-haves: Handguns- a 1911 in USGI configuration, 45 acp, 5" slide. a fullsize 9mm doublestack that can feed HPs reliably, it can be a DA/SA like Beretta 92, or a polymer striker fire like Glock. A classic revolver in either 357 or 38 Special, either S&W or Colt. A pair of .2...

re: Is LSU more deserving to go to the Sugar Bowl than Auburn? - Scoob
Well, let's see: In LSU's favor, they looked better in their last game. In Auburn's favor, they won the head-to-head matchup; this can be overcome if we have a better record overall, and/or a better conference record. Auburn has the better overall record (same amount of losses, 1 more win)...

re: Aside from the coaching aspect, can Briles recruit? - Scoob
[quote]He used to be able to; but I don't think he can anymore. First off- the stigma will hover around him, and a lot of "decent" players and their families will not like that. Second- he brought in, apparently, a pretty large amount of thugs who could play. I don't see that type of guy bei...

re: Is LSU actually considering Briles? - Scoob
Les Miles was a standup guy, remember that poor kid with cancer over in Alabama that he corresponded with? That didn't keep him employed, despite the best record ever at LSU, and they almost fired him during a disastrous... 9-3 season. Orgeron has dirt on his hands from some of the Miami and USC...

re: How is O with Aranda and Kiffen different from Miles with Fisher and Pelini? - Scoob
Topwater Trout, tell me this- do you have a problem with the way Orgeron has handled the RB position? I do. I'm not saying Miles was any better, but O has left me a little worried about some things. Examples- - Fournette seeming to have final say on if/when he plays. o let him do this in the Fl...

re: Now that the regular season is over: A comparison of Harris and Etling - Scoob
Harris is by far the superior talent. Most of his numbers were not accomplished by scheme, they were due to his physical gifts. Go back and look at his highlights- he toyed with New Mexico St, he rolled away from probably sacks vs better teams and threw bombs (Fla game comes to mind), etc. Etling...
