re: Column: Like it or not, ESPN isn't sticking to sports - nvasil1
[quote]“Hey, ESPN: Stick to sports.” I’ve read thousands of social media posts and reader emails about ESPN over the past 15 months. If there’s one phrase that tends to surface most frequently, it’s that chestnut suggesting the network’s only proper place is in the athletics lane.[/quote] It's a...

re: Lindsey Scott will score LSU TD's against anyone, LSU owes him an opportunity - nvasil1
Yep, Etling did well under the circumstances last season. With Canada, I feel good about getting the best out of him. He doesn't have to be spectacular for us to be successful either. Mauck and Flynn weren't....

re: Lindsey Scott will score LSU TD's against anyone, LSU owes him an opportunity - nvasil1
[quote]Just want the best guy. But, using rankings is not a great predictor. Danny (who I think is a good QB), was a 4 star. Does that mean he will light it up. NO. Rankings are rankings[/quote] Agreed. I think I mentioned in this thread or another, Lee and Jefferson were 4-stars (JJ may not have b...

re: Lindsey Scott will score LSU TD's against anyone, LSU owes him an opportunity - nvasil1
Could be wrong, but I don't know if he said Scott would overtake Etling. Don't get me wrong, I'm riding with Danny right now. If we get through the summer and Canada wants another guy to start, I'll trust his decision. But Canada needs more than spring ball to install the offense and evaluate th...

re: Lindsey Scott will score LSU TD's against anyone, LSU owes him an opportunity - nvasil1
He's just saying that recruiting rankings aren't always predictive of how good a guy will be. It doesn't mean Scott will be good, just that we don't know for certain right now....

re: Lindsey Scott will score LSU TD's against anyone, LSU owes him an opportunity - nvasil1
You're the one saying you've seen Etling play, so we should find our entertainment on Xbox this fall if he's the starter. Seems like you're being the irrational one without seeing what Etling does with Canada....

re: Lindsey Scott will score LSU TD's against anyone, LSU owes him an opportunity - nvasil1
[quote]In 2017 we get to see if LSU found a coach that can develop QB's, we'll also get to see who was truly full of shite, because neither of the true freshmen QB's will play in 2017.[/quote] So we'll be able to fairly judge if Canada can develop QBs after less than a year on the job, with a senio...

re: ESPN Layoffs Today: "Around 50 names you will recognize" - nvasil1
[quote]but when you are doing layoffs, you can't really lay off the people who are netting you the best ratings, even if they are easily replaced. HQ, PTI, and First Take are successful in part because of the individuals involved. They are also successful because they are on ESPN in certain time...

[quote]She works on TV. She gets shite on daily. Again, today was the day to stfu about being upset bc people are upset you still have a show. It's petty as frick[/quote] Considering what kind of a day it has been for her company and colleagues, I am surprised she wasn't told by ESPN to ignore provoc...

re: How the hell did SAS survive the ESPN layoffs? - nvasil1
I like SAS, but I'm a little surprised by the posts saying he might be ESPN's most valuable on-air personality. The line graph on page 1 illustrates that First Take's ratings took a noticeable hit after Skip left. ESPN also gave SAS his own show before which was a disaster that lasted a little o...

re: One of the best takes on today's ESPN layoffs - nvasil1
[quote]Loud, controversial, and often unfounded takes are all the rage today. Turn on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, etc. and it is truly embarrassing, but those programs are increasing their viewership, something ESPN needs desperately. They're just trying to do what seems to be working elsewhere[/quote] I...

[quote]Like I said earlier, she's a provocateur that that's why she's featured prominently. Her talent is getting under people's skin.[/quote] And like I said, if that is her talent, why wasn't she featured prominently sooner? Perhaps she crafted her shtick over the years to put her where she's ...

[quote]Just curious, can you name or point to an offensive coordinator that never had dud games from time to time?[/quote] No, because of course they all do. My point was I don't know if you can totally put the offense's performance in the '06 Auburn game on Les, based on some of Jimbo's games with...
