re: Former North Texas head coach Tony Benford is expected to join LSU as an assistant - atltiger6487
some guys aren't good head coaches but are excellent assistants. Those jobs require different skill sets. No shame in that. If this guy is an excellent assistant, then good for Wade. ...

re: LSU is favorite behind only ALABAMA to win SEC this fall - atltiger6487

re: Hypocrisy of those who denigrate Dale Brown's accomplishments - atltiger6487
[quote]Some can say he put LSU basketball on the map while others would point out he had both Shaq and Jackson and still couldn't win a title[/quote] It's actually both. Dale should get immense credit for lifting LSU basketball from the dead, and keeping us nationally relevant for a 15 year sp...

re: Brandon Harris to UNC - atltiger6487
[quote]He read defenses better and had better poise?? I would say no to that,[/quote] you don't think Etling read defenses better and had better poise than Harris? I don't see how anything could be more clear. Etling was much calmer in the pocket, could read the defense, and check down when n...

re: Hypocrisy of those who denigrate Dale Brown's accomplishments - atltiger6487
[quote]"A level of integrity that is unparalleled"? Dale Brown? Guess he went out to L.A. and got J.Williams legit? Or perhaps the money men in Lafayette who were paying him cash under the table to match his paycheck for summer work.[/quote] I personally saw John Williams driving a new red 5-series...

re: Brandon Harris to UNC - atltiger6487
[quote], the only difference between Etling and Harris was that Etling used his head to make plays like taking off and running for a short TD when he couldn't find anyone to pass the ball to.g[/quote] That's the "only" difference?!?! Uh, how about the ability to throw an accurate ball? Ability ...

re: Spinoff: Honest question: why the hell are we opening with BYU in Houston? - atltiger6487
The primary reason is money. Another reason is that these types of games are high-visibility games, so that's a factor. And if you think BYU isn't a legit opponent, then you don't know them at all. Every neutral site game can't be against USC, Ohio State, Florida State, etc. TCU, Wisconsin, ...

re: CPM has allowed the game to past him up - atltiger6487
is it even possible for baseball to pass a coach by? The game is slow as molasses and, is itself, stuck in the past, and apparently wants to remain there. Yes, football has evolved and moved forward, and basketball too, such that the games are virtually unrecognizable from 30-40 years ago. Base...

re: Its a trap game. - atltiger6487
I don't think Troy is a trap game. I view trap games as ones that a team overlooks emotionally, and they usually occur the week after a big emotional game, and/or looking ahead to a big game. It's true that we go to the Swamp the week after Troy, but there's nothing before Troy where we'll expen...

re: Russ Reynolds interview after the game. - atltiger6487
[quote]There once was a time that we mocked ULL for having little man syndrome. "What?!?! Matt Heath stared in our dugout and disrespected us. Let's bean him next time!" Now LSU is the one with the little man syndrome. "SELU's coach had the umps check Reynolds' hat. That's calling us a cheater in fr...

re: Thoughts on John Brady as an assistant under Wade - atltiger6487
[quote]So who with the "Louisiana flavor" will Will Wade choose?[/quote] "Louisiana flavor" doesn't matter. Wade should get the best assistants he can find. Recruiting isn't rocket science. It's not hard for a new staff to learn where the best players are and to develop relationships with the im...

re: Hypocrisy of those who denigrate Dale Brown's accomplishments - atltiger6487
[quote]The problem was, that elite young LSU talent ran into just as elite older Georgia Tech talent. If memory serves me, GT had 3 guys who went on to be NBA stars. I believe we loss by 3, GT went to the final 4, and wasn't the game played in Ga.? People can knock Brown all they want, but the m...

re: Hypocrisy of those who denigrate Dale Brown's accomplishments - atltiger6487
[quote]Dale could take a team of solid, but not NBA quality players, and make runs in the NCAA tournament. As long as you weren't Indiana coached by Bobby Knight, you wanted no part of a matchup with an "average" LSU team. And he did achieve with talent during the first Final Four run. But somet...
