re: Trying to understand our ineptness versus Arkansas in football - atltiger6487
[quote]quote:There are only a few times per year where a team can get "up" and play at max intensity[/quote] [quote]Really??? So what happened against MSU and AU and ND last year????? Why couldn't LSU get "UP" for Arkie last year?? I know they were somewhat spent after the Bama game, But how did...

re: Trying to understand our ineptness versus Arkansas in football - atltiger6487
a lot of it is where they fall in our schedule. It's after Bama and our other big SEC games and we're emotionally spent. There are only a few times per year where a team can get "up" and play at max intensity. Arky's not one of those for us, but I think it is for them. ...

re: LSU's offense will be dynamic in 2015 - atltiger6487
[quote]When AJ is a senior and is not still a bad QB, I assume you'll do the right thing and acknowledge that it was his youth - he wasn't just bad.[/quote] my quibble is that you're saying AJ is not a bad QB [i]now[/i]. In my opinion, that's absurd. By most metrics, he's far below average. ...

re: LSU's offense will be dynamic in 2015 - atltiger6487
[quote]Hard to make an offense work when you have to rely on a first year starter and your other, more talented option doesn't know the playbook. :/ Oh and Cam's only been here two years. [/quote] uh, Lane Kiffin was in his first year as Bama OC and Sims was a first year starting QB. Bama some...

re: 1989-1990 LSU Basketball: What do you remember the problem being? - atltiger6487
[quote]Yeah. He just knew he wouldn't get t'd up for acting like a madman at the scorers table, or that a freshman guard would miss a one and one. It's a cute statement, but he was very fortunate against Dale and LSU. [/quote] It's not all Fess Irvin's fault. We blew a sizable second half lead....

[quote]I'm not saying it didn't happen, but you implied that he sent the team onto the court with no idea of what to do. That's ridiculous.[/quote] I'm not implying it, I'm saying explicitly that it happened. And yes, it IS ridiculous. But that's what Dale did, and other posters have said t...

[quote]You know that most of the time, coaches aren't "drawing up" plays in huddles right? It's kind of a rarity. [/quote] wow, are you really using that argument??? Whether or not a coach actually uses a marker on a board??? Of course that isn't the point - the point is that Dale didn't ev...

[quote]LSU 86 (I believe). At Georgetown, down 1. Time out. Instead of drawing up a play, all Dale did in the huddle was say "Jose, don't shoot the ball. Jose, don't shoot the ball. Jose, don't shoot the ball." The camera was in the huddle. Everyone saw it. They come out of the time out. Jose Varga...

[quote]Do you remember the game versus Mississippi State where Dale was mic'd up? Dale didn't draw up one game time situation play. Every TO was a motivational speech. The "group think" in this thread is pretty accurate.[/quote] This is EXACTLY correct. Dale did the same thing against Florida...

[quote]You have 0 perspective on historical home run rates[/quote] I didn't mean for my comments to be limited to home runs. I actually don't like home runs that much - a guy hits a ball over a fence and jogs around the bases). I don't really care much where the scoring comes from, just so lo...

[quote]Jennings should wear 18 some day for the way he has handled things. [/quote] What "things"? You mean like dealing with the pressure of playing QB at an elite football school? Which he signed up for, voluntarily? After playing very poorly last year, where criticism should be expecte...

[quote]You could say that there's a not inconsiderable racist element on here that wants Jennings to fail because, well, you know. Tigrlee isn't the only one by a long shot.[/quote] Right, because all the racist fans want the black starter gone so the backup can play. Oh wait.......
