re: Nothing to offer but "fiery speeches", good gumbo, and AARP membership - JohnnyU
[quote]that didn't keep O from getting whipped by Troy and MSU. [/quote] Saban lost to ULM and UAB. Miles needed a miracle finish to beat Troy in '08 while LSU was defending national champions. That whole narrative is getting stale and worn out. [quote]O doesn't hire up and coming young...

re: How exciting will a true QB battle be? - JohnnyU
[quote]This will be the most conservative "DO NOT LOSE" offense we've seen yet. Jobs are on the line.[/quote] It can't be. We don't have a Jeremy Hill, Fournette or Guice to rely upon. Ensminger was a passing quarterback so I'm sure his mentality will be different than previous coordinators. P...

re: What's up with fournette and the spin move - JohnnyU
[quote]because in the pros you have to make people miss and you cant just run over them[/quote] He has done that a few times, particularly with his stiff arm. I think Fournette missed three games this season and still had 1,000 yards. He hit a wall late with the long NFL season and he even admi...

re: Sullivan, McMahon, and Matt Moscona - JohnnyU
I have stopped listening to most of that stuff. I occasionally listen to Gordy or Rabalais when they join Hannagrif. I have stopped reading Higgins columns because he is so acerbic and negative and contrary to his belief, he is not witty or humorous. There is enough self-loathing among LSU fans b...

re: This is the bottom line concerning O - JohnnyU
[quote] I even think he knew this taking the job, he saw an opportunity to pad the bank account with millions and took it. Who can blame him on that one? [/quote] Do you realize the absurdity of that statement? Sure, money was his only motivation. Good grief. Seriously, the intellect and rea...

re: Are the 7 & 18 traditions dead? - JohnnyU
[quote]The 18 tradition will not die, but we seriously need a stud playmaker to wear #7. Don’t care what anyone says, Chark didn’t do that jersey justice with dropped passes, muffed punts, and lackluster play[/quote] Yeah, the least he could have done was have a punt return that turned the season...

re: Ryan Clark on the safety coach position - JohnnyU
[quote]Here comes the buffoons saying Clark doesn’t know enough to coach safeties.[/quote] No, that's not the point. Just because I guy can play and knows the position doesn't mean he can coach. It's no different than Mawae not getting an OL coaching position even though he is a potential NFL H...

re: “The Rant went wild when Miles was fired” - JohnnyU
[quote]How has that worked out for you so far all-knowing Rant? [/quote] Not bad. Orgeron certainly accomplished no less than Les. Miles' value is clearly demonstrated by all the offers he has received by P5 programs. Next question....

re: Miles worst lingering effects on the program...name them - JohnnyU
[quote]he majority of what Miles left behind were positive effects, not negative. Yes, the offense was stagnant under Cam, but the cupboard was certainly not left bare. Don't forget, Brennan committed while Miles was still around. Another thing to not forget is that O was the recruiting coordinator ...

re: Chances with Foster? - JohnnyU
[quote]ANY 4 year player is better than a kicker for 1 year.[/quote] We lost two games this year because of missed chip shot field goals. We recruit to need. JC players only give you two years but clearly we are better off with those we got in December versus taking 4 years players of lesser n...

re: If you still support O please post here and tell me why? - JohnnyU
[quote]“negatigers”[/quote] First that is ridiculous term. Second what is your motivation behind this? What are your alternatives to O at this point? The fact is that he is the coach and for that reason you should support him. A fan can support him even if he doesn't have a great deal of co...

re: By weeks end, shite will have hit the fan. - JohnnyU
[quote]Several donors to the program will be shutting off the funds they give to the university by Friday. [/quote] Those donors are probably a few posters on the Rant who collectively give less than $100 to the program or University. ...

re: Ed just bet his and Alleva’s jobs that they go 10-2 or better this year - JohnnyU
[quote] I think 7-5. Should be enough to get them both fired. [/quote] That won't get them fired. It's going to be a young team next year. There's no proven quarterback, running back or wide receiver. Barring total catastrophe in '18, 2019 will be Orgeron's make or break year. In 2019 he...

re: Stop with the "Relax" and "Calm Down" topics/posts! - JohnnyU
[quote]how about you man up, get off your asses, get fired up like you should be! [/quote] Since you’re so fired up why don’t you do one of the following: 1. Pony up the buyout cash for Orgeron and then bring in a sure fire, guaranteed, can’t miss head coach. Give Urban Meyer, Nick Saban or Bo...

re: If you couldn't tell, 0's propaganda machine is up and running on the OC situation - JohnnyU
the only thing that is busted is the segment of LSU fans on this forum who are hoping for ORgeron's failure and therefore LSU's failure. I wasn't thrilled about the hire but he is the coach. I don't know a thing about ATVS and its relationship to Orgeron. However it seems like they have been ...

re: I just wish Canada stayed. - JohnnyU
This is from Gomila at ATVS: [quote]Enter the Matt Canada fiasco — and that’s not a bad word to use. Basically, once the work became serious, Canada became a problem for virtually everybody in the LSU Ops Building to work with. Dave Aranda, in particular, very much wanted him gone. It wasn’t abo...
