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...

re: What is a acceptable record for Coach Ed Orgeron this year? - Tom Bronco
[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 ...

Everyone wore Converse back then. the only options were high top/low top and black or white. If I am not mistaken, Joe Dean was a Converse salesman to college teams at the time....

re: Will Antonio Blakeney get drafted tonight? - Tom Bronco
Blakeney and Wade had conflicting (well somewhat) agendas. Blakeney would have only come back if he thought he would look better to the pros after another season. Given there would be a new system he would have to adopt to and more people to share the ball with, that might not have happened. Wad...

re: Tiger Basketball Lands Tremont Waters - Tom Bronco
I hope you are right and that we can have a good team with freshman, transfers and leftovers from last year but there are a lot of uncertainties. We are depending on two highly touted freshman. There is still going to be a period of adjustment from high school. What is the chemistry going to be like...

re: Conn. Guard - Tom Bronco
I hope Mays has improved his shot because he is going to be a 2 guard now and Tremont will be the point guard. Of course they will both be playing both part of the time as Wade substitutes due to fouls and trying to find a combo that grooves. ...

re: Here's the next kid up for Wade, I'm told... - Tom Bronco
Here's hoping. He would be a terrific pickup this late in the season, espedially after we lost Alstork. This guy looks like the second coming of Josh Gray but with a much better shot. Let's hope if we do get him that we can integrate him into the playbook a lot better than we did with Josh. Of cours...

re: The team Will Wade is Building - Tom Bronco
[quote]We once started Hickey and Stringer. Together. Liked both guys and both MAYBE 5'10" [/quote] True and I agree they both had ability despite their size. Andre will always be one of my favorite LSU players. They were Trent recruits right? CJJ had them for one year together and then sent Hick...
