re: Transition from Chavis to Steele at DC... - nf
Chavis had his problems but his defenses were basically always in the top two in the SEC and top 20 in the nation, which is as good as anyone in the nation outside of Saban. The idea that a dude with a resume like Steele is going to be an upgrade over one of they very best DCs in the nation is dumb...

re: Why can't good highschool qbs realize that the qb position is the missing link - nf
[quote]Wow lol, you are dumb arse frick!!! Jimbo has been telling all his guys that they can be the next Russell, Ponder, Manuel, and now Winston. First round QBs who have made millions of dollars. You know what the first 3 have in common, they all sucked arse in the NFL. Or take Meyer for examp...

re: Why can't good highschool qbs realize that the qb position is the missing link - nf
Not directed at you, just didn't feel like scrolling back to find the guys talking about LSU QBs going to the NFL as if Jamarcus getting a shitload of money and then bombing out spectacularly is a good thing. Or Matt Flynn being perennially mediocre. If we're recruiting dudes whose biggest desi...

re: Why can't good highschool qbs realize that the qb position is the missing link - nf
Do people really think Jamarcus Russell and Matt Flynn are positive stories to tell recruits? "Come to LSU, you could be the next worst bust in draft history (but without the millions because of the fixed wage scale for draft picks) or a perennial backup who couldn't make it out of preseason wi...

re: Clearing up a couple of things on Steele - nf
[quote]If the guy sucked so bad and was demoted the 1st time he was at Bama, why did Saban hire him back after his stint at Clemson? Answer me this. [/quote] He didn't hire him back as his DC. If we hired him as a director of player personnel or linebackers coach he'd be a fine hire. This i...

re: Time to support our new DC - nf
[quote]Hurt feelings aside, it's hard to imagine Nick Saban having a guy on his staff that isn't very competent. Let's face it, Saban's known as a taskmaster and not in the business of making friends with his assistants. If you are there, it's because you bring something of value to the position. Ju...

re: 2013 LSU offense's misconceptions - nf
So no actual recognition of a record by the SEC. Gotcha. And now using conference games is cherry picking. Because conference games totally don't determine conference standing. You posted five times I a row with nothing at all to say. Though at least now you've moved the goalposts from "the...

[quote]It isn't really arbitrary, centennials of carries are pretty standard measurements. [/quote] It's arbitrary because 200 carries is not materially different than 180 carries other than our preference for round numbers. It's also arbitrary in that a gap of 100 carries is relatively huge so ...

[quote]Wrong. [/quote] Nope. Limit the stats to in conference games only and see where we come out. Conference play is what matters, not stat padding against body bag opponents. When limited to in conference play only LSU was behind Alabama, A&M, Auburn and Missouri in YPA. ...

[quote]There is minimum (200)on carries since your ypc usually goes down with an increase in carries. Jeremy hill owns the sec ypc record. [/quote] So he set a record for a rate stat as long as you apply an arbitrary qualifier (which he just barely meets, at 203 carries)? We're meant to believe ...

[quote]What? Jeremy hill set the sec season record for ypc, had the second best rushing season in LSU history, and has the second best yards per game season in lsu history. [/quote] Over his career maybe. Magee had a higher YPC than Hill last year. And a handful of other SEC RBs did as well. A...

When limited to just conference play they were: 4th in yards per play 6th in points per game 9th in red zone conversion percentage 8th in rush yards per play They were a good offense. But they weren't record breaking and they weren't even the best in the SEC by efficiency, in a year where ...

re: should Cam Cameron be held accountable for the state of our pass game - nf
The defense handed the offense the ball on the 6 yard line in a tie game and less than two minutes left with a chance to put it away and they ended up taking a field goal from the 20 and leaving 50 seconds on the clock. They deserve plenty of blame for putting up a putrid 10 points outside of tha...

re: should Cam Cameron be held accountable for the state of our pass game - nf
People calling the 2013 offense record breaking are being disingenuous as hell. They were 6th in scoring offense, 6th in passing offense, and 7th in total offense in the SEC. They were good *for LSU* but they were middle of the road for the conference, much less nationally. Says a lot about how...
