re: Sam Spiegelman’s second Dandy's recruiting dispatch from The Opening Finals, July 3, 2018 - TigerBlood17
Apparently Sopsher has not been all that impressive. He ran a slow 40, and got beat by an Oklahoma QB in the medicine ball long toss. I still think he is a must get and a really good player, but he may fall in some rankings. Don’t shot the messenger ...

re: Anybody seen Michael C. Hall’s new show “Safe” - TigerBlood17
I just finished it. Binged it the last couple of days. I was hooked after the first episode. I thought it was really good. Hall’s accent was kinda weird but it was good to see him in this type of a role. The show kept you on the edge of your seat through 8 episodes, which isn’t easy to do. Not a ...

re: 9/11: The Falling Man - TigerBlood17
Number one take away: If I worked in the new World Trade Center, I would have an emergency parachute in my desk. But in reality, in this extreme situation, the other people fighting for their lives would probably murder me and take my parachute to save themselves. I would have to fight off dozen...

re: Will the loss of Patrick Surtain jr be the biggest loss ever - TigerBlood17
If he chooses Bama, this is the biggest loss in recruiting I can remember. Bigger than Landon Collins, Cam Robinson, etc. It will be a real shocker too. Everyone thought that he would choose LSU up until today....

re: Does anyone feel there are only two possible outcomes to the Ed O experiment? - TigerBlood17
[quote]Either O bombs and Aranda takes over, or O gets us to the playoffs in the next few years[/quote] How would the fan base respond if we promoted Aranda? Wouldn’t Aranda be partly to blame if Coach O does indeed fail?...

re: Selling the fans on this OC hire matters none. - TigerBlood17
[quote] quote: because he will be fired if we fail next year. What's fail (just so we are clear)? Looks to me like O and his supporters will just move the goalposts when the time comes. [/quote] In my opinion, 9-3 and he is back, 8-4 is iffy, and 7-5 he is gone....

Selling the fans on this OC hire matters none. - TigerBlood17
In this situation, it doesn't matter. In some hiring situations it matters. "Winning the press conference" can motivate the fan base and the boosters and provide energy to a program. This can help in recruiting and translate to on-the-field success. This is not that situation. The only thing ...

[quote]How good is he at managing money when he gives Ed Ogeron, a coach no other AD would hire as an HC, a $12 million buy out.[/quote] The buyout will likely be less than $6 million before any serious discussion about a buyout happens. Very manageable by today's standards. Probably helps recr...

re: Does everyone realize that the LSU athletic dept has a metric f#@k ton of money? - TigerBlood17
[quote]Then he should've countered Texas on Herman.[/quote] Alleva’s only good quality is money management. He didn’t want to over pay for Herman because he had Orgeron. He thought a Orgeron would be a great hire and would be cheaper than Herman. Flawed thinking, but doesn’t mean we didn’t have th...

[quote]You do realize athletic and academic money are two different things? The academic side has been hurting a LOT over the past decade.[/quote] Of course I do. F. King is the one that falsely blended the two so he could appear as if we have no money, in order to get more state funding. Politics....
