re: Just saw this on Thinking Out Loud... - Tom Bronco
[quote]Simply amazing that LSU has all this NFL talent and cannot stay at the Top. Nothing short of bad coaching at the Top[/quote] It takes more than five great players in a given year to produce a great team. For instance, one of our CB's is supposed to be containing the perimeter on a given pla...

re: What will it take to get Myles Brennan on the field for legitimate PT? - Tom Bronco
Danny has looked good so far. Why are you even questioning his ability at this point. The freshman got in and looked far worse last game although he did have a couple of drops by receivers. The word has been that Danny was injured all last year and is now able to throw much better. What I see on the...

re: What happened to playing Tulane every year? - Tom Bronco
You ever heard about shutting down the state when it comes to recruiting. Amost every other SEC team has another football school that they compete with that is in state. As long as Tulane keeps their lowly status we don't have to worry about them. If we let them play us and they somehow managed to k...

re: melt on the cougar board - Tom Bronco
Everything they are saying is true. I don't get why some of you don't agree. Our talent level is easily twice theirs. They were and are a very bad team. Surely none of you think they will have a winning season?...

re: LSU just has to prove themselves - Tom Bronco
Well your title says it all. Realistically a forecaster shouldn't pick LSU too high because we have so many new players, a new offense (and coach), injuries (anyone else queasy with the pre-season injury to Guice getting aggravated in games), transfers, etc. Plus the competition, as we know, is very...

It is my understanding that the kid from Oregon has to sit out a year? Thus he doesn't count against scholarships this coming year....

re: Will Wade addressed incoming freshmen at Stripes event in Tiger Stadium - Tom Bronco
TU, I agree with your assessment of CJJ. I let his likeability cloud my vision especially when he came in with that first team and broke even in conference. But I always knew that last year would be his make or break year and boy did he break! I think Sampson will be a key player this year in on...

re: Shareef O'Neal - Tom Bronco
And how did that turn out? Not well! Another O'Neal would be the worst thing for this program right now. I, for one, have had enough one and done prima donna's to last a century!...

re: What offensive changes are you most hoping to see vs. BYU? - Tom Bronco
Only one change. Take what they give us instead of playing to their formations and strength. So any kind of play is okay as long as it works. If our offensive line can dominate then run it down their throat. If they are blitzing us and getting through then run screens and draws. If their linebackers...

re: Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf playing on TV right now - Tom Bronco
Everytime I read someone saying that someone loves their country or died for their country, I want to know what is a country? Some arftificial lines drawn on a map? A flag? The head/leader whether you call them President, King, Emperor or whatever. When was the last time we entered a war because ...

Will Wade interview with Jordy Hultburg - Tom Bronco
If enthusiasm translates to wins then we are in good shape. The main thing I got was that he is looking for players who have high energy and play with everything they have all the time. He looks for them moving all the time. He wants guys who play with toughness and grit, who will be good teammates,...

re: What is a acceptable record for Coach Ed Orgeron this year? - Tom Bronco
[quote] Nope. Losing talent to the NFL is an every year thing. This year is a little worse than average, but it's not "the worst ever." That's just dramatics. [/quote]Dramatics? You can make an argument as to what year was the worse for losing key players but it is hardly dramatics to acknowledge...

re: Pretty insightful interview with Smacker Miles - Tom Bronco
[quote]I'm still shocked he hasn't found a coaching job. The media and a bunch of LSU fans think LSU was crazy to fire him. He's always been a great guy and you can tell he's a really good dad. Hope the best for the Mad Hatter.[/quote]The media ridiculed Les for years and then when we fired him, all...

[quote]Miles winning 9 wasnt good enough so why would it be for O? Must win 10 or more or what was the point? [/quote]It's his first full year and he has some new coaches who will have to get their system up in a hurry. I also believe we lost more high quality talent to the NFL than we ever have be...

re: Jalyn Patterson will redshirt for 2017-18 season - Tom Bronco
I respect both coach and player here. We had six scholarship guards and I suppose Wade had told him that he wouldn't be getting much playing time. But he is letting him keep his scholarship so that he can complete his academic work and graduate. Then as a graduate transfer he can play for anyone wit...

re: Based on this boards response to Ed O hire and since - Tom Bronco
It is really more on Canada's shoulders than O's. O will rise or fall depending on how well the offense plays. I think everybody knows we have the real deal in Aranda and the defense will be good. For me the test as always will be Alabama. Can we finally have play calling that will give us a chance ...
