re: Would a running/mobile QB help or hurt Guice and LF's ypc average? - OldManRiver
[quote]Jake Coker - derrick Henry 2000 yards Jalen hurts - Damien Harris 847 yards[/quote] yeah, but Hurts + Harris = 1740, so you're getting the same production just spread out. Plus, do you think Harris is as good as Henry? From my limited view, I sure don't...

re: Why do we give up one of our rare top tier home opponents every year...... - OldManRiver
According to an Advocate article, last year ticket revenue for the year was $35 million. Add in parking and concessions and subtract operating expenses, and I'm not sure you can say that LSU would make near 6 mil a game. ...

re: Why do we give up one of our rare top tier home opponents every year...... - OldManRiver
[quote]If the game was Tiger Stadium it would still be on national TV[/quote] LSU makes the same on the TV contract regardless, so that's not the issue. The real draw is that if LSU plays Wisconsin in 2016 and BYU in 2017, they get 2.5-3 million per game guaranteed. If they did a home and home wi...

re: So Aranda Still Hasn't Officially Signed His Contract Yet? - OldManRiver
I'm saying that assistants have gotten raises before and nobody every said anything until the BOS meeting. I know we're all anxious and want 100% "confirmation" that he's staying, but I'm just not sure LSU is going to put out a press release just for that. We'll see...

re: So Aranda Still Hasn't Officially Signed His Contract Yet? - OldManRiver
Why does everybody think that LSU is going to announce a contract change? No matter what he agrees to it won't be ratified until the BOS meets early next year. Him initialing a piece of paper isn't really going to change his status...

re: We all know O is known for being a great recruitor - OldManRiver
[quote]Les was a great recruiter. That wasn't the issue.[/quote] I don't think that's 100% accurate. His classes almost always looked good on paper. But look at last year for instance. We finished #3 in the 247 composite rankings which averages the major services together. Pretty good right? Bu...

re: Someone please explain to me how Briles was the Baylor scapegoat - OldManRiver
[quote]It appears as if he acted honorably and the girls coach told investigators that he did act honorably and was quite helpful. He was a scapegoat for other incidents that did not involve athletes that he had no way of having any knowledge of. [/quote] You know who doesn't know about any of ...

re: Arden Key Sat Out...Why? - OldManRiver
There is an SEC travel roster limit, I think it's 70 players. So I would assume that only players that have a real chance of playing will make that trip. You wouldn't waste a roster spot on a guy who 100% won't play, and you aren't going to bring guys along just to stand around on the sidelines. ...

It's a damn shame that after listening to the radio, I think we would have a better shot of hiring Tom Herman if we sent Jimmy Ott rather than our AD...

re: LSU #21 in AP and coaches poll, Florida 15/16 Auburn 18/19 - OldManRiver
I know the CFP committee isn't really looking at "style points", but if Bama doesn't give up a TD to Florida Saturday, which is a very real possibility, then Florida will have 2 offensive TD in their last 5 games. I can't imagine them keeping a team in the top 25 with that type of offense....

re: Sugar Bowl here we come! - OldManRiver
It would take a 8-10 point drop for Auburn, and for us to get a LOT of respect of our win on Thursday. UF will absolutely drop after 2 straight beatings, and unles UT rallies in the next 4 minutes they will be out of the top 25...

re: Does LSU still have a shot at the Sugar Bowl? - OldManRiver
[quote]If Florida and Tennessee lose tonight then there will be five SEC teams tied for 2nd place in the conference with 4 losses each. In a situation like this one, what chance does LSU have to get the Sugar bowl bid?[/quote] There is no "second place" and certainly no tiebreakers involved. If th...

re: Dline coach rumors - OldManRiver
Well if that's true, he damn well better have already gotten the NCAA to give us another waiver so Austin Thomas can recruit in Jenkins place. If not, then we're already trending down b/c no way in hell 80 year old Jenkins gets the same results on the road as Thomas...
