re: LSU is currently 4th in the COUNTRY in kickoff return defense - Tom Bronco
Exactly what I thought. This is one of the most irritating things that Les does. He actually coaches them to aim for the corner of the end zone rather than having them kick through the end zone. I suppose his philosophy is that we can get them back further than the 25 by doing this. And of cours...

re: SQ: If Etling is that good - wouldn't the coaches have seen it in practice? - Tom Bronco
Harris was going to start because of more game experience, more knowledge of the playbook and that is just the way Les is. He sticks with a player way too long out of ? loyalty? just the way it is? conservativeness not liking changes? Do not discount Harris as an athlete with a strong arm and goo...

re: Get on record for offensive blame - Tom Bronco
[quote]Cam for shitty play calling? I don't think anyone can pretend to know how much or little Cam actually does for this offense. He and Strudawa come from polar opposite ends of the scheme spectrum yet the offense looks essentially the same. [/quote]This is so obvious that I can't understan...

re: Basketball Recruiting Board - Tom Bronco
I did a post on basketball recruiting here - [link=(http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/lsu-recruiting/basketball-recruiting-anyone/64913236/)]LINK[/link] I was kind of shocked that Darcy left so late in the summer or at least didn't announce before then. It was also rumored that Bridgewater was b...

re: Basketball Recruiting Anyone? - Tom Bronco
[quote]We will not be good at basketball. Johnny Jones is our coach. This will be the answer to all LSU basketball questions till further notice. [/quote]The post was about recruiting not whether the team will be any good. How good the team is will be determined on the court. I for one will never w...

Basketball Recruiting Anyone? - Tom Bronco
I only know two things. Darcy Malone is transferring and won't be here for his senior year and we have one commitment for 2017, Galen Alexander a 6'6" small forward who is ranked a four star. i am assuming that CJJ is not going to replace Darcy since it is rather late to be announcing it. I wond...

re: What are our chances for Shaqs son - Tom Bronco
[quote]Let his son go where there is less pressure of being Shaqs son. I understand him going somewhere else. [/quote] Do you think he will not be under that pressure no matter where he goes? Especially if it is in or near Los Angeles. Shall is much more known as a Laker than a Tiger....

re: How can LSU be #5 in ESPN poll but no. 16 in the AP poll? - Tom Bronco
The real question is why you pay so much attention to polls, especially this time of year. They are only opinions and everyone has one....

re: Les Miles / Jimbo Fisher Story - Tom Bronco
How about a nice balance between the two? Otherwise known as keeping the defense guessing. And just as an after thought, how well did our running backs do against Bama last year?...

re: Russell "Slash" Shepard! - Tom Bronco
To me it just looked like really bad defense. He was wide open and his defender tried to close way too late and then the other guy took a really bad angle to try and tackle him after he caught it. Not to say it wasn't a good play for Shepard but not a highlight film play either. ...

re: Quarterman gets a partially guaranteed two-year deal with the Trail Blazers - Tom Bronco
[quote]quote: my guess is he's getting a couple hundred thousand guaranteed for this year Probably 50-100k but could be lower if hes unlucky [/quote]That is way off unless he actually makes the team. I am sure he is not signed for more than the minimum NBA salary which is $525,000. The part...

re: Quarterman gets a partially guaranteed two-year deal with the Trail Blazers - Tom Bronco
[quote]It means if he doesnt make the team he doesnt get paid (outside of the time hes on the team). Something like that. Hes really just a preseason body [/quote]Yeah that is pretty much it. He is guaranteed a place in training camp which theoretically gives him a chance to make the team altho...

re: Got my basketball ticket renewal form in today... - Tom Bronco
I'm pumped also South. Somehow I never give up on the Tigers. I always approach every new season with optimism and then let them prove me wrong. One of these seasons the optimism will be true. I think this coming year just not being slammed in all the national sports outlets will be a cause for happ...

re: Shaq changes Tune...says son should play at LSU, UK or Mich St. - Tom Bronco
I'll stick with what I said in a previous post. This last season left a bad taste in my mouth for prima donna "super prospects". Basketball is a team game and it is truly at it's best when you see five guys out there pulling together. Each one knowing what his skill set is and what role he should b...

re: Simmons at LSU: Mission Accomplished? - Tom Bronco
I was just using Iverson to illustrate the athlete that was so good he thought he was privileged and didn't have to follow the same rules everyone else did. Iverson seemed to get worse as his pro career gained longevity. Let's hold our judgement and see what Ben is like and how well he does after fo...

re: Simmons at LSU: Mission Accomplished? - Tom Bronco
A pretty fair estimate of the situation but still missed some things. 1. Both Simmons and Jones were responsible for last season's meltdown. Jones was unable to inspire his players to put aside jealousy and egos and play together and Simmons used it all as an excuse to stop going to class, not p...

I don't want his son on the team. I am tired of individuals getting all the attention rather than the team. Enough of the overinflated egos. Let's play team ball. ...

re: Skip Bayless doesn't seem impressed with Simmons - Tom Bronco
[quote]And his shot doesn't need to be built from scratch, his form isn't broken. He needs more reps and confidence.[/quote]Not true. His biggest problem with shooting is he can't make up his mind whether he is right handed or left handed. Shoots every drive with his right hand but free throws and j...
