re: Would it benifit Trump not to attend the last 2 debate? - Scoob
I think the 3 debate system may actually end up favoring Trump, in the end. Debate 1, there seemed to be a lot of questions about him. Tax returns, history of racial lawsuit, not being nice to women, etc. Hillary took shots, the moderator keyed on him, and he was defensive. She looked polished, ...

re: Saban considered to be a risk when he was hired @ LSU - Scoob
[quote]Saban considered to be a risk when he was hired @ LSU[/quote]He wasn't so much of a risk, as he was considered unproven at a high level thus far. Sports media raved about him even back then, they said he was definitely a brilliant young coach destined to land in the NFL. Him and Kirk Feren...

re: I Am Making My Bold Prediction Of LSU's Next HC Now; Feel Free To Make Yours - Scoob
My best guess is Herman, for however much money it takes to get him. Timing indicates that. Herman was probably the likely choice, and once Houston started out hot like they have, his name has skyrocketed. If you wait, someone else is going to make a move and pursue him. In contrast- the other ...

re: Anyone else actually feel bad for Les - Scoob
[quote]But you all were more than happy to make fun of him for you recent success against the Tigers.[/quote] everyone makes fun of coaches. Les did a lot of stuff that invited it. Nothing he did was horrible, none of the jokes were intolerable. Please tell me you aren't one of those guys who wa...

re: whatever LSU wants - Scoob
[quote]And his reasoning is exactly why LSU can't get whoever they want. 10 Win seasons for a decade straight, 1 NC, playing for another isn't good enough to be fired after the season at the least, move on "on your own" best case scenario. No, you are tossed to the streets like a dog for sta...

re: Clinton was the clear winner Monday night .... online polls vs real polling - Scoob
[quote]You are so anti-Clinton, you don't care if he is a danger to society[/quote]Many, many voters think Hillary is a danger to society- a more proven one. What Trump may or may not do is speculation. What Hillary states she will do is continue the current policies, and further extend them. W...

re: whatever LSU wants - Scoob
[quote]LSU sports radio guy Matt Mascona said LSU can get anybody they want[/quote]He was ranting, but what he said actually made sense. You fired a guy who averaged 10 wins a season, who had won a national title and played for another. You fired him in the middle of the season, and you're spendi...

[quote]Godzilla is/was the nuclear bomb. Something powerful, devastating, and uncontrollable by man (though, I guess the nuclear bomb is "controllable.")

re: LSU is going to make Jimbo Fisher the highest paid coach in CFB - Scoob
If you're going to spend a ton of money, spend it wisely, and from a business standpoint as well as on-field play. Compare Saban and Miles- not the playing style, but the business sense of it: both coaches won big here, both won national titles. Saban was "on the ladder" here, he was always seen...

re: LSU to guage interest from Urban Meyer and Nick Saban... - Scoob
Urban has already responded by saying he's going to be the coach at Ohio State. Saban has already responded by criticizing the mid-season firing of a guy with Miles' resume; sounds pretty clear that he doesn't approve of the business model and would want no part in it. Saban's response is a l...

re: O Look, another Orgeron Thread... - Scoob
The one solid benefit Orgeron would bring would be longterm loyalty to the program. I think he'd stay until we fire him. I don't think the same could be said of a guy like Herman; if he lights the world on fire here (our greatest hope), he'll have his pick of NFL teams before he turns 50. And sooner...

re: Herbstreit says the only call he'd make would be Tom Herman - Scoob
[quote]I think the only concern Herman is the fact that he's only 40. He has another 25 years of coaching left. And that much time, if he succeeds, the NFL will be calling. [/quote]Yeah, Herman might be the pathway to disappointment and frustration. If he pans out, we likely lose him within 5 yea...

re: Why did the clock keep running after our WR went OOB on final drive? - Scoob
From what I remember, this rule had changed quite a few years back (once upon a time, the clock stopped when a player went out of bounds. Period). It was changed to involve forward progress, and if, in the referee's judgement, forward progress is stopped, the clock can continue. To me, it's one ...

re: What about Mullen to LSU? - Scoob
I'm not generally a huge fan of Matt Moscona's opinions (I listen to his show on the drive home), but I do agree with his point today: You just spent multiple millions (10 mil, I think) to fire a coach with a national title, multiple conference titles, additional appearances in both the BCS and C...

[quote]but fella, he was 3-21 (!!!) in the SEC at Ole Miss. You can't just dismiss that because it was 10 years ago. It's the most relevant data we have on him. It must be considered. If Coach O wants a big-time HC gig, [b]let him go to a lesser school and earn his HC chops[/b]. Then the big boy...

re: Trump has more upside potential in next debate - Scoob
My objective take: Hillary looked like the more professional and polished candidate up there, but there were things that she said that made me cringe. Needing more gun control, we are all prejudiced, etc. Donald looked a little spastic up there, but he made the stronger points too (in my opini...

re: So how long until we start hearing some actual noise? - Scoob
Based on that Dallas news report, we've already reached out to Briles. That's not unexpected, the guy is available and last I read, not in prison. He also runs a great offensive scheme, something the fans have been salivating for. May mean nothing. [quote]Right after Louiville beats Houston [/quot...

re: The truth about Briles during the Baylor "scandal" (just FYI) - Scoob
It's a little interesting that Briles was considered the leading candidate to replace Mack Brown at UT, until he said he wasn't going anywhere after their bowl game. It wasn't until after he turned Texas down that the scandal came rolling in. Maybe the big-money Texas boosters were pissed at t...
