re: Jaluke and Craig not coaching at LSU - Lombardi44 on 2/2/17 at 12:15 pm
Good timing. Get those recruits signed and then fire the coaches who did the recruiting. Or was CEO dissatisfied with their recruiting efforts? (public school education gets me every time)...

re: Assessing the context of this class - LSU v Bama - Lombardi44 on 2/2/17 at 12:13 pm
I don't think Saban "worries" about anything that any other SEC team is doing. He is focused on developing the talent that he has collected and winning championships. That is what drives Saban, not who signed with LSU or Georgia or Tennessee. ...

re: #7 Recruiting Class - Lombardi44 on 2/1/17 at 5:26 pm
When you can't lock down your state, that is a negative. When you lose in state players to your biggest rival, that is a negative. CEO better be able to develop this talent or he won't be around to watch them graduate. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Fixed it for you. [quote]It is understandable why any prospect would want to play for Saban and Alabama; every class Saban has signed during his time in Tuscaloosa has won a national title, except for the 2016 class and they have 3 years left.[/quote]...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Interesting article in Advocate about LSU academics - Lombardi44 on 10/30/16 at 8:00 am
Her article was not about the athletic department's revenue and how they spend it. It was strictly comparing voluntary donations received by LSU, academic donations vs athletic donations. The point that I took from the article was that more people care about donating to LSU athletics than ca...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: TOPS payments stopped immediately due to state budget crisis - Lombardi44 on 2/11/16 at 7:25 pm
But if they put a "closed" sign on your school in April, I doubt they will be handing out diplomas. It's really just grandstanding but could be a problem. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
How much of an impact will the TOPS problem have on baseball? - Lombardi44 on 2/11/16 at 6:12 pm
LSU uses TOPS money for the in-state talent, freeing up more money for the out-of-state kids. Will they cut back on OOS money or just screw the local kids? ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Best advice on little league baseball - teaching your kids - Lombardi44 on 1/17/16 at 7:53 pm
Most of all, make sure HE enjoys it. As long as your son looks forward to playing, he will want to get better. Don't push. Encourage him and help him, but if he says "I don't want to play", be a good dad and explain the pro's and con's of not playing. Then accept his decision and move on to som...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Question for Alabama alumni - Lombardi44 on 1/14/16 at 9:32 pm
The main reason for the increase in OOS kids are the generous financial aid packages available. Alabama basically says, if you get "this test score" you get your tuition paid. No essays, no interviews, just get the score. That alone will draw a lot of kids, because most parents are going to b...
