re: What is your favorite underrated LSU moment? - msbargas on 6/17/17 at 3:27 pm
1970 Norte Dame 3 LSU 0. Not a victory but nobody expected LSU to give #2 ND so much trouble. ND had the nation's #1 offense, but was shut down by Cholly Mac's defense: https://www.si.com/vault/1970/11/30/611874/notre-dame-goes-kicking-into-the-cotton...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote] In 1971 LSU played Alabama on a nationally televised game on a Saturday night losing 7-14, but Casanova did not play because of an injury. Someone check me on this, but i believe i’m right…. Just a great talent[/quote] He actually did play in that game. Alabama was held to 0 passing yards...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]He was always the best RB on the team but Cholly Mac was like Miles in that he insinuated we'd see a lot of TC on offense but it never materialized. [/quote] No, Mac was a much better on the field coach than Miles. He did let TC play tailback, but not in his senior year. Probably because o...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Exactly how good was Tommy Casanova? - msbargas on 5/18/17 at 2:45 pm
[quote]My dad talks about him like he was PP7 or LF7[/quote] Well he was an equally dominant player in his day. He was about the same height as PP7, but not as thick and not as fast. PP7 ran a 4.3 40. TC37 ran a 4.5. Having said that, straight ahead speed isn't everything. Both were excellent ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]I was really young but I'm pretty sure he played mostly CB at LSU, and safety in the pros. [/quote] Right. He could have played CB in pros, but he played with Lamar Parish, one of the best cover guys in the league at CB. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qKP-hECs8M0 He was only a second ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: How about this all time Tiger Defense - msbargas on 4/16/17 at 3:48 pm
"Capone was a good one but having seen him play as well he was not the dominant player that Michael Brooks or Eric Hill were." Like Estay, Capone was another one of Mac's smallish players who exceeded expectations in college. He was small even by the standards of the 1970s. He was all-American bu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: How about this all time Tiger Defense - msbargas on 4/15/17 at 7:29 am
[quote]I did see Estay play and he was a great DT[/quote] Estay was sort of an enigma. At 225 lb he was much to small for that position. Yes, even in the 70s DTs were generally much bigger than that (250-260) I recall quite vividly in the 1971 Alabama game when Estay was pancaked by John Hannah...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: All Time LSU Defense - msbargas on 3/27/17 at 8:08 am
Yes, on an interview he stated that he ran a 4.5, which makes sense since he ran a 9.7 100 yard dash on the track team, but that was nowhere near as fast as Al Cofee who ran something like 9.4. However he spent much of his senior year recovering from a hamstring injury, so when he was evaluated by t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
