re: Underrated Recruit That LSU Missed Out On Recently That You Really Wanted - scottynola on 6/24/14 at 11:00 am
He wasn't underrated and it's been a few years but one guy I wonder about sometimes is Akiem Hicks. His recruitment blew up and he ended up in Canada, but from the way he looks in the NFL he would have been a big time player at LSU. Always need another great D-Lineman you know. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Jim Mora Coaching Tree - scottynola on 4/15/14 at 1:51 pm
I wrote a blog post today, part of a series of coaches who succeeded without sticking to a single system. I included Mora because he won in New Orleans with a great defense and so-so offense, and in Indy with a great offense and so-so defense. One item I mentioned was the number of future head coach...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)

re: Should we?? Alex Mack - Center - scottynola on 3/18/14 at 5:02 pm
The only way for this to happen is to negotiate a sign and trade type arrangement with the Browns. Some think that is against the NFL rules, not technically, the Patriots worked out something like that with the Dolphins for Welker a few years ago. Basically the Saints would have to negotiate a deal ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I saw that on NOLA.com and came over here to check and see if anyone had comments on how it might effect recruiting. It opens up extra scholly's, and I think this is a good sign. I kind of read the tea leaves on which athletes are being recruited heavily, and compare that to remaining scholly's a l...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: What gets a guy to the NFL? (Nature vs Nurture) - scottynola on 1/22/14 at 7:49 pm
Coaching only gets you so far, imo. Same with nature, honestly. If you look at NFL players they all have the genetic potential to develop the kind of bodies the NFL requires. Of all the guys with this DNA, of the ones who actually play in HS, excel, work out, and get enough exposure to get into foot...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

The best athletes can go three and out. If you want LSU to have the best athletes, then expect more three and outs. It should be a point of pride that we get more guys to the NFL quicker than other teams, and as a result there are more opportunities for talented young players to get on the field an...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
