re: How much does a BB coach count? - macaoidh
Jones lost the team in the second half of the Wake Forest game. He's not getting it back. How many points a game are you talking about? As many as the opposition wants. They're not even competitive at this point; the effort isn't there....

re: Special teams coordinator - macaoidh
As good a recruiter as Thomas is, if you can keep April around as a shadow-staff guy I might consider having Thomas be the special teams coach under April's tutelage. Let him learn from one of the best in the game and ultimately be special teams and recruiting coordinator. That's a nice path to adva...

re: In the event Etienne doesn't come... - macaoidh
[quote]Scott what are you hearing on the basketball front? [/quote] That they'll make a change at the end of the season, but unless Alleva gets lucky and finds a Beth Torina at Chatanooga or East Tenessee State or somewhere don't expect anybody earth-shattering to replace Jones. Apparently F. Ki...

In the event Etienne doesn't come... - macaoidh
...how does the board feel about giving Patrick Queen a shot at tailback? Assuming they make a sizable haul at linebacker, that is. Say Phillips and Gay and Brooks, and Chaisson or Allen or Bryant or whoever. You take those guys and you have enough linebackers that you can spare one. And then ...

re: Does anyone here really think Alleva will get the Bball hire right? - macaoidh
That's the problem. Good AD's don't have coaches "forced" on them. Good AD's are in control of things within their job description. A good AD would have had Dale Brown and Collis Temple come to him and make demands, and he would have calmly said "Fellas, I'm gonna hire a coach so good you won'...

re: Too early to start discussing Bball changes?? - macaoidh
[quote]What about the Iona coach? They've been pretty good the past few years. Might be a realistic choice too??[/quote] The thing about Cluess at Iona is he's a little old. I think he's like 58. Kermit is 57, but Kermit's got more connections down this way. You hire an old coach who's never w...

re: Too early to start discussing Bball changes?? - macaoidh
A few names to toss out... 1. Kermit Davis - he's the "inside" hire given the time he spent as an assistant to Brady, and it's certainly tempting to dismiss him as a candidate because it would make sense to have a clean break with LSU's mediocre history, but the fact is Davis has done extremely w...

re: Brandon Harris tweets he will not transfer - macaoidh
He'd never agree to it, but it wouldn't be horrible if he redshirted and you'd get him as a 5th year senior in 2018 with a year of development under Canada to his name....

re: Chidi Okeke Transferring. - macaoidh
They're going to need to move Caleb Roddy to tackle. No point in having a 6-6, 280-pound tight end when you don't have any tackles....

re: Filling Out The Class - macaoidh
Reid is apparently in here this weekend and his other official visits so far are Iowa State and Tennessee, so I'm going to say there's a pretty good chance we land him on that visit. He's not all that highly rated and he's a little on the small side, but if you watch his Hudl he'll hit you and he...

re: Filling Out The Class - macaoidh
I'll take a whack at it... 1. Cam Akers, RB 2. Marvin Wilson, DE or Phidarion Mathis if you miss on Wilson 3. Todd Harris, FS 4. Devonta Smith, WR 5. Levi Jones, ILB 6. Isaiah Wilson, OT or Elliot Baker, OT (flip from Bama), or worst-case scenario Adrian Ealy, OT 7. Baron Browning, OLB or K...

re: Another Alleva screw job. - macaoidh
[quote]What in the tupenny frick could Alleva had done to play 12 games? It was UF/Foley's arrogance that prevented the game from being played on Sunday in Gainesville that week. Alleva lobbied to get that game played. Come on man.[/quote] South Alabama offered to play us on Oct. 29. Alleva tu...

re: Blayne Enlow, RHP 2017 baseball commit - macaoidh
St. Amant. Here's what you worry about - does his family lose everything in the flood? If so, he might not be in a position to turn down 2nd round or sandwich round money. I hate thinking like that. But it's where we are....

You guys knew this was coming - the Ieshia Evans fark - macaoidh
They're making this out to be the new Tiananmen Square image, which might be a little much. That just begs for farking. So knock yourselves out. [img]https://cdn.theatlantic.com/assets/media/img/notes/2016/07/RTSH3XR/lead_large.jpg?1468180530[/img]...

re: We stacked next year - macaoidh
The guy y'all are not considering who might well end up a loss to the draft is Freeman. Next to Fraley, Poche and Newman who were all locks to go out, Freeman might be the one who's played himself into some money. I wouldn't expect Reynolds to stick around either. He's been here four years; if...

What about Lewis Neal as a big London Fletcher type inside linebacker? - macaoidh
I'm intrigued by the idea of having Neal and Beckwith as the two inside linebackers and Key and Bower as the outside guys. You watch that video of Aranda and DiNardo talking about the disorganized front he shows the offense to disrupt their protection calls, and then you consider what you could h...

re: MLB Draft (IS CLOSED) - Where our recruits/players stacked up - macaoidh
Saw a couple of items, which I am too lazy to Google and provide links, to the effect that Cole Freeman could play center field. He apparently has Laird/Stevenson speed. But he was also a JUCO Golden Glove winner at shortstop, so he might end up winning a job as a middle infielder....
