re: Saban isn't showing the respect that Brandon Harris deserves"He's a good player" - oldmantig
I'm sure Saban thinks his defense can get pressure. Very little of which Brandon has seen this year. We don't know how Brandon will react to the pressure if it comes. I think he can handle it well but we don't know....

re: What about the weather for the game? - oldmantig
All that stands between Leonard and a Heisman is us winning 3 of the last 4 games and a strong performance at Alabama by Leonard. He gains about 150 at Alabama and I think the trophy is his. ...

re: Alan Risher - Harris is late on too many of his throws but he can sling it - oldmantig
I'd rather slightly underthrown balls than always overthrown. At least the receiver has a chance to make a play....

re: I may actually watch Paul's show this week - oldmantig
I'm not sure he is against LSU although there is evidence of it. He is, however, down on Miles. It is most apparent in the difference in the way he handles calls from Georgia concerning Richt being on the hotseat and his encouragement of hotseat talk for Miles. Whenever someone calls in to say Georg...

re: LSU Will Be Unstoppable - oldmantig
I don't watch a lot of finebaum but what does that guy have in for les miles. Last year a lot of Georgia fans were after Mark Richt and Finebaum would take the reasonable approach and say things like well fine and dandy but who are you going to replace him with and if he has a losing season then yes...

re: Irrational Exuberance or Rational Expectation? - oldmantig
I tend to agree that the offense will be better. The serious concern is the defense and particularly the defensive ends. Quarterbacks will be better. The irrational exuberance says Brandon Harris will be all conference, rational expectations says better than 50% of his passes complete and some key p...

re: Grave mistake at the end of last year's Bama game? - oldmantig
A couple of face masks that weren't called on Bama, one where Jennings came off the field with it pulled off. A downing of a punt on the one where the wrong official called it a touch back. The most bogus unsportsmanlike penalty I've ever seen where clearly several Tide players could have been calle...

re: Cholly Mac vs Les - oldmantig
I find the comparison eerily similar. Great success early followed by mediocrity afterward. While Miles was able to capitalize a bit more on his early advantage it remains to be seen if he can pull another championship season out of his hat. He has been a more determined recruiter certainly. Good me...

re: Out of Stater here, what the heck is going on to even hint that the school may - oldmantig
The cuts to higher education during Jindal's time in office have been brutal. It's to the point where if his proposed budget were to pass we no longer have public universities we have privately funded ones. When Jindal took office the state funded 70% of the cost of going to college at our state uni...

re: BAMA vs. Adams - oldmantig
There was so much shoving on that play that it gave the impression of premeditation. Not sure Saban would coach that way but there was a bunch of shoving across the field....

re: Jennings in for Harris vs Auburn '14 = Jefferson in for Lee vs Bama Nov of '11 - oldmantig
You fail to realize the performance of Jarret Lee was not due to newness and nerves. Alabama hit him in the mouth and he crashed and burned. Throwing 2 picks in as many tries following the hammering. This was due to fear throwing as soon as he finished dropping back without even looking at the targe...

re: I had a dream last night... - oldmantig
Dreams are just desires expressed while sleeping. It will be tough to be one of the best offenses in the nation unless Mettenberger improves dramatically. And dramatic improvement is seldom seen in the quaterback position. I'm afraid you are what you are there. However, I don't think we need to be o...

re: 1968 Sugar Bowl - LSU vs. Wyoming - oldmantig
I was there. It was my first live LSU Game. My father bought tickets for us for my 11th birthday. We rode a greyhound that dropped us off right in front of the stadium. We sat way up high but it was 50 yard line. What a comeback, so I was sold....

re: Running Backs- Comparison: Present - 07 - oldmantig
Agree whole heartedly. Lost in the Kentucky beat down is Kentucky with less a passing threat than us was consistently gashing the Gators D on the ground. On several occasions in the first half at least the moved the ball between the 20's with ease then bogged down in the red zone. Could be an excell...

re: LSU's PETA Probelm - oldmantig
PETA has run themselves out of rational people's consideration with their extreme views. However there is a much more dangerous group with similar goals but hiding behind a more rational approach and with a generally accepted name. Humane Society of the United States, HSUS, makes you think they are ...

re: Favorite Les Miles lines/quotes? - oldmantig
While this isn't the first time i've seen this thread, I'd just like to say we need to do more of this in Miles' case. Celebrate the man for what he is instead of constantly brooding over what he isn't. We've got a damn strong coach with character and he's very entertaining to boot. He may not be th...
