re: Spivey from Richwood to Moo St. - mdwilkins
[quote]Q. Spivey of Richwood has committed to Mississippi St. I just heard. Big kid who is really athletic. I consider it a loss. [/quote] if they recruited him, they would be crucified for recruiting another 3 star player. we have a ton of F-Back/TE on this team. We need linemen and wide rec...

re: Top Ten All-Time LSU Basketball Recruits - mdwilkins
I believe John Williams should be 3 or 4. Pete is from a different era. Too hard to compare anything before the internet. Kinda applies to early Dale Brown recruits as well. Randy Livingston should be 1. Two time high school player of the year. Tied with Kidd the first year. ...

re: Does Canada use RPOs? - mdwilkins
I believe that RPO is a true option. It can be a triple option as well. After the snap, the QA can hand off if the keys are right. If not, he might roll out. At that point, he either runs or passes depending upon what the defense is doing. :geauxtigers: I don't think we do RPO with Etling, bu...

re: Ed Orgeron Recruiting vs. Les Miles on Travis Etienne - mdwilkins
[quote]His highlight tape from high school is electric. I never understood why we slow played the kid. We need multiple backs in last year's class.[/quote] The reason was simple. LSU thought that the number one RB in the country was coming (went to FSU instead). ...

re: Theriot just buried Mascona and other media who are crying over the media ban - mdwilkins
[quote]Mascona didn't really have a comeback except to call him stupid then cut him off going into the brea[/quote] He backtracked later. bottom line, it is not the most important thing. But it does show a lack of confidence, a good deal of paranoia, and a bit of cowardice. His mentor, Pete...

re: Official LSU Softball Recruiting Thread: Commits & Targets - mdwilkins
[quote]It'll be interesting to see the two transfers battle it out, both do bring pop in their bats, which we needed anyways. A freshman or two usually sees the field, but it definitely seems like Sunseri and Antoine seem to be the more talented players in this class, along with Caccamise. Should be...

re: Dennis Briggs DT Class of 18 - mdwilkins
[quote]He's on board and wants to be a tiger!! I think he'd be ok with that plan haha [/quote] I think there is a two way street here. I think there are a lot of guys who want to go to LSU. The key is that the Coaches have to have him evaluated as highly as you do. I agree that stars can be ove...

re: Early, early Signing Date for Football - mdwilkins
[quote]If a coach takes another job or is fired you could maybe allow the player a window to choose to reopen their commitment or stay with school.[/quote] I think the early period should be for players that are truly signing with the school rather than the coach. if they are concerned about the...

re: Your all-time LSU BASKETBALL team - mdwilkins
CJ's strength was his quick shot. how would that be an advantage on a team with Pete and Shaq? He was a phenom with the quick shot and the 3 point line, but I was never that impressed with his defense and passing. both things we need with Shaq on the team. BTW Pete was not known for any defens...

re: Your all-time LSU BASKETBALL team - mdwilkins
I look for a team in addition to individual excellence. In my mind, Pettit/Pete/Shaq are head and shoulders above everyone else in LSU history. Need to fill in roles after that. My greatest regret was "If Livingston could average double digit assists on one leg, what could he have done if he was ...

re: Is Trent's Return Next Season a Done Deal? - mdwilkins
I think people are forgetting that one of the main goals for the hire was to clean up the APR issue. I think one of the reasons that the administration is happier than the typical fan is that TJ has done a good gob with the academics. Most fans care only about the wins and losses. I hope he ca...

re: If someone pledged up to $1 billion for a "state of the art" replacement for TS - mdwilkins
Well, the first thing they would do is move the stadium out of the core area of the campus. This is why they moved the baseball stadium. They want more space in the core area for day to day facilities rather than a stadium used only a few times a year. I don't have a problem with it. Since LSU...

re: Honest Question about the Les Miles show last night - mdwilkins
I believe the core of the Penn State problem derives from a culture of wins equals lack of accountability. Every time someone like yourself implies that no one has the right to question the coach, I see that same culture developing right here. I am no spring chicken and I have always respected c...

re: Honest Question about the Les Miles show last night - mdwilkins
I have supported Coach Miles since he was hired here and continue to do so, but I am stunned by the Penn State situation. The answer to your question depends upon what you think about the Penn State situation. Was it a culture of "Ask no questions" and "No Accountability" for Paterno because he wo...

re: Cowboys stadium spoiled me - mdwilkins
I think they should reduce the number of seats in the bowl. I have not been to Jerry's World, but the Ga Dome has far better seating, more leg room, all seat backs, and shorter rows. This comes at the expense of numbers. You could put an expansion around the south end zone to bring the numbers ...

re: Explain to me what I am missing here... - mdwilkins
a better question might be "What athletic dorm?". The main difference between the preferred walk-on and the regular walk-on is that the preferred walk-on can report today. the regular walk-on has to wait until school is in session. I am guessing there are other minor perks not involving money. O...

re: What coach in his right mind would come out and say that he's against... - mdwilkins
The last I heard, only two athletic departments did not get subsidized in any way by their school. That was LSU and Nebraska. I guess you could argue that they could reduce the amount they are paying the coaches to raise the funds, but I think you are still only talking the top 25 or so schools. ...
