re: Interview with a Miles Basher: Harris was hurt in 2014 - Bill77379
Why is that a problem? You think you change an OL from one offense to another overnight? Jennings had also practiced the pro set all of 2014 because Mett was the starter and that was what was run. LF came from a fairly similar offense. They started adding the pistol set and spread sets but changing ...

re: Harris makes little headway in LSU quarterback battle - Bill77379
I can't follow his logic. He says "making little headway". Then says that Harris is getting more reps with the ones. Then he quotes stats that indicate the passing game is in the 70% range which means both have improved. So it looks to me like both have improved and Harris has moved ahead. So I woul...

re: Spinoff from MSB; What's been the coldest game in Tiger Stadium? - Bill77379
The coldest game I ever personally attended was against Mississippi State in I believe 1951. If I remember correctly it was in the 20's. and with the high humidity and wind I would bet the "feels like" was close to zero. LSU crossed the 50 yard line 1 time and Cliff Stringfield(?)who was the QB kick...

I am. He was the senior leader on the defense. The D rotated on him because he was so familiar with it. He kept everybody in their place on the field....

re: Who's a player no one is talking about, but will make a significant IMPACT? - Bill77379
Actual Thomas is the dime. Jefferson is the nickle. What this does is release Mills to cover the slot and running plays. What is good about all 3 of these guys is that they can tackle and are strong against the run. This means you don't lose that much against the run by pulling a LB or 2 from the ga...

Yep, a wheel route. Sorry I couldn't remember the name for the pattern at the time. Don't get to be over 84. Of course the alternative is not good either....

re: Jim Kleinpeter - REALLY? - Bill77379
It wasn't a "swing route" off of a bunch set. He took off on a deep sideline off of a normal swing route from a bunch set. It was not the normal RB route off that set If he published the video after being asked to not do so, then he and all TP writers should be barred from practice. When I tried ...

re: LSU Softball Incoming Freshman for 2016 Season. - Bill77379
Were any of the LA girls on the LA Little League Big League Girl Softball Team. They just won the Little League (16-18) Championship beating California 9-1. The LA team is from Monroe. Lacy Hill had a no hitter thru 6.1 innings. She did not look 18....

re: The real issue with Miles and QB position - Bill77379
You must have missed the MSU and AL games in 2011 if you think JL should have started over JJ. You also probably missed the entire 2008 season. Miles would not talk about his decision on JJ over JL because he would not throw a player under the bus. Miles will never do that. If the fans don't get ...

re: What do you make of this comment from Les? - Bill77379
Both Jennings and Harris can run with the ball and Harris is adept throwing while he is moving. They will be in the read option most of the time. The defensive read is simple for each set. This allows the QB to make a read just before the snap and decide which of 3 options he wants: pass, hand off o...

re: A little surprising..... - Bill77379
Coach "spik" pushing Harris to keep working hard and not relax. It was no accident he only gave Harris one reps with the 1s in the spring game. Twofold thing. Not let any other team see him see him and prompting him to keep working hard....

re: Steele vs. Chavis Statistics - Bill77379
There is really not a lot of difference, but a key statistic was not shown. That stat is pass completion percentage and passing yards per game against the D. Can you calculate that? Chavis's D was designed to keep pass completion percentage low and limit first downs. Steele's D is designed to create...

re: MY outlook for 2015 (football) - Bill77379
The big thing is the OL. If it comes together the rest of the pieces are there. The OL candidates are there, but everyone is playing a new position except Posic and that is only because he has played virtually every position. Bit though talented, the OL must have chemistry and execution. The QB and ...
