re: Barrett Sallee: LSU's Scrimmage Numbers Don't Inspire Confidence - Alt26 on 3/28/17 at 4:46 pm
Who knows how accurate this shite is. Les used to come out and give the impression that LSU's passing game in the spring was second only to the Saints in it's effectiveness. We know how that turned out. This is the age of the internet and social media. Things that normally wouldn't be news beco...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Decommitted Univ. of Washington Basketball Recruits? - Alt26 on 3/28/17 at 3:23 pm
Good Lord! Is this question going to be asked every time a recruit recommits or is released from their LOI? Right now LSU only has one open scholarship available for next season assuming that everyone with eligibility returns (10 players) and the 2 signees enroll. That could change if some of t...

re: Is Gonzaga a lock to beat USC? - Alt26 on 3/27/17 at 12:38 pm
In no way are they a lock to win, but this is a different Gonzaga team compare to those from years past. This team defends. In fact, they are the best (statistically) defensive team in the country (South Carolina is #2). Couple that with their usual efficient offense, and they are a tough out.

re: The 2017 football schedule is surprisingly manageable - Alt26 on 3/27/17 at 11:06 am
I think the over/under line should be 9.5 wins. @ UF won't be easy by any means, but they lost a lot of good players from a defense that really carried them all of last season. Who is their QB? Del Rio who wasn't great or Franks? LSU has played well in the swamp over the last few years and UF...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: SEC media preseason basketball rankings - Alt26 on 3/27/17 at 9:39 am
So I guess the real question is "how hot are the seats of Billy Kennedy and Mark Fox next season?" I'm a little surprised UGA kept Fox after this season. He's really kind of been the poster child (along with Andy Kennedy) for "just good enough." Just like in football, you feel like Georgia shou...

To each their own. I don't wear LSU gear unless I'm going to a game or (occasionally) just sitting around the house, but that's just me. I do find it a bit funny to see the people who wear nothing but "college clothing" every day.

Not surprising.

It was either jump up to Indiana, or take a job that was not really all...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
