re: Who was the old LSU football player who thew a cop through a window? - Bill77379
Piggy Barnes 330# threw Apple Saunders 310# out of a window in the Pentagon when those were the athletic dorms in the 40s. Saunders was the center and Barnes was an OG. When those guys spoke up in those days people listened. Barnes was an All Pro Guard for the Eagles for a number of years. Someone ...

re: The Offense Hasn't Been the Main Problem - Bill77379
I have a bigger concern with the D for a number of reasons. It is mostly because of the starting from scratch in everything. If Aranda gets it installed and we have the players to do the job I will be much relieved. Everything is just so new. Getting Valentine back will help also....

re: Aranda as a recruiter - Bill77379
Aranda is terrific at evaluating personnel to fit his scheme. at Wisconsin he did have a rich group of players from which to select, but he always found adequate talent for a good defense. He also talks well to the players and they rspond to him. Evidently LSU players feel he is really smart and lis...

re: Bregman with 2 HR, one of them a walk off - Bill77379
If Bregman is on the Hooks he is on the fast track. As a matter of interest the Corpus Christi Hooks are the Astros AA team. I believe their AAA team is in CA or somewhere. Because CC is so closed to Houston they put the best young players there where they can visually watch them easily and ...

re: Why and the hell is it such a big secret for LES to give some real stats? - Bill77379
IMO he doesn't have the official stats or hasn't had time to digest them as the media meet is immediately after practice. So he wings it. They are mostly correct and he just is really trying to give them the feelings he felt while at the practice. The best thing I liked of all his comments was t...

re: IMG Academy could 'destroy our profession,' - Bill77379
I think what he means is if schools like IMG proliferate and create a group of super teams interest in local HS football will decline. Texas HS football is also structured on the premise that HS teams can't recruit.Therefore IMG is anathema to UIL rules and philosophy. The only place to which a HS a...

re: Why Alabama is Alabama and LSU is LSU - Bill77379
It is simple. AL alumni recruiting machine is way better than anyone else. When they get a coach who is a great recruiter they are tops. AL has twice as many elite players on their roster as anyone else and everyone in the US should be playing for 2nd place. It is not numbers like 6 to 4 or 10 to 5 ...

re: With possible tropical development next week, let's talk about WKU - Bill77379
We should be more worried about Western KY. They are at least feisty. They were slaughtering NTSU last nite and had a sign in the stands saying, "LSU, you are next." I am not too concerned but they have a little fight in them, ...
