re: Andy Cannizaro removed as head coach - paper tiger on 2/20/18 at 10:45 am
I wonder of they had gone 3-0 this weekend with twelve home runs if he would have been fired. In the real world, coaches and players who are successful get a whole lot more slack than those who are not. Bobby Knight had annual meltdowns at Indiana throwing chairs, berating players and even a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Looks like another year of leaving pitchers in way too long - paper tiger on 2/17/18 at 8:25 pm
[quote]I thought we would have fixed that problem by now. it was the same thing last year. This is ridiculous and bush league.[/quote] I thought we made it to the finals of the World Series last year. Wouldn’t the coaches have to have managed the pitchers reasonably well to make it that far? Do...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

[quote]There is no silver lining[/quote] So I have written twice now that not getting Surtain and or Goodrich was a fail. Of course we needed corners this year.

[quote]That is, unless one goes down this year..way too thin.[/quote] Well to be fair, I didn’t write that it’s a good thing we did not sign a corner this year. It was a fail. The silver lining is that the 2019 corner class in La is about as stacked as it possibly could be. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Cornerback fail silver lining - paper tiger on 2/13/18 at 10:14 pm
Five of the top fifteen players in Louisiana for 2019 are cornerbacks, including the number one corner in the country and a total of four top in the top 250. Losing Surtain probably increases our chances of getting Stingley and perhaps two of the other four: Derek Stingley 5 star Devin Bush ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (12)
re: why is everyone so upset at O? I thought LSU recruits itself - paper tiger on 2/10/18 at 11:05 am
Does any coach at LSU have a built in recruiting advantage over most other schools? Sure, it’s the only flagship school in a talent rich state. Will some coaches at LSU nevertheless recruit better than others? Absolutely. LSU had terrible classes under Hallman. Les Miles was an excellent re...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Some perspective - paper tiger on 2/6/18 at 7:33 pm
I think most people know some three stars will be all American and some five stars will bust. But on average a team of five stars will slaughter a team of three stars. That’s what you get when Alabama plays Vanderbilt. You don’t go looking for short quarterbacks because Drew Brees is short. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
The final four - paper tiger on 2/6/18 at 3:10 pm
Obviously there are no guarantees when dealing with what 18 yr olds will do, but the consensus among those who claim to know seems to be that LSU will get: Joseph Chase Surtain While no one seems certain on Surtain, most seem to think he is probable. Hopefully the biggest mystery will ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)
re: QB Jordan Loving can throw the football - paper tiger on 2/3/18 at 1:20 pm
Loving has a very odd throwing motion to me, he looks as if he is pushing the ball rather than throwing it. It’s hard to tell from the video how strong his arm is. That said, his release once he decides to throw looks mighty quick. And he is accurate on the film I saw. He looks like an ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Patrick Queen, RB - paper tiger on 1/25/18 at 6:55 pm
I did high school radio for playoff games and saw Queen and White in action, both played both ways. Queen was good, but did not stand out as much as White. Livonia had several college prospects that year. White and Queen could play on either side of the ball in colege. Had LSU had a need...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Early enrollees with the best chance to play early. - paper tiger on 1/24/18 at 11:59 am
Terrace Marshall - it’s a mystery why wr is considered a position of need, there might not be any position on LSU, other than safety, as deep in talent and potential than wr. There is a lack of playing experience though, and no one on the roster came to LSU as a true freshman more ready to play th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)
re: Randy Moss’s don - paper tiger on 1/24/18 at 8:05 am
It seems one thing Thaddeus Moss does is fly well under the radar. He is by reports a very reserved kid and hard worker. In some respects he fell a bit far from the tree, He stays out of the news. He was a theee or four star recruit, depending on the service, and did little his freshman year. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

LSU Nick Foles story - paper tiger on 1/21/18 at 8:55 pm
I have known Nick since he was born. His dad and I are old friends and business partners. Nick was a three star qb from Westlake where he broke many records of Drew Brees. That same year Jarret Lee was a 4 star Texas qb. How Lee who had only played a year or two was higher rated than 6 foot 5...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (31)
