re: Devonta Lee emerging! - Metaloctopus
[quote]If he can’t see the Wr talent he’s not looking very close. Once Dillon is healthy and McMath emerging with the big 3 the wr room is fkin stacked. [/quote] Yeah, he just kind of named off a few guys, and sounded very unsure of what to expect of anyone. His take on the group seemed to boil d...

re: Devonta Lee emerging! - Metaloctopus
Good to hear. It's funny; listening to Jeff Palermo in a radio interview the other day, he sounded like he was having a hard time naming viable candidates for targets, outside of Jefferson, Chase and Marshall. I think we have plenty of candidates. He said Trey Palmer has looked impressive, but...

re: Saints don't look the same without joe brady - Metaloctopus
Man... I hope all of this Joe Brady hype amounts to something; anything. But there are some strange conclusions being drawn from next to nothing. The Saints never look like the Saints in preseason, and the Saints have been an established offensive unit for 13 years. Let's not pretend Brady invented ...

re: Austin Nola with a solo HR today - Metaloctopus
[quote]Who?[/quote] The guy who was drafted 23rd overall, and who was widely considered as a Carl Crawford type of prospect. Jared Mitchell. As good as all of the other guys on the team were, no one came close to making scouts salivate as much as Mitchell. It just hasn't worked out....

re: Austin Nola with a solo HR today - Metaloctopus
Man, he looks different. I've checked in on his stats from time to time, since he graduated, but that video is the first time I've actually seen him in 7 years. He stands taller, has a much quicker looking swing, and just physically looks nothing like I remember. Good for him. Think about how man...

re: Coaches rank LSU basketball as the 6th best job in the SEC - Metaloctopus
Is there any actual reason that Arkansas, Tennessee and Missouri should be considered better jobs than LSU? Especially now that we have an AD who seems ready to make improvements to facilities? At this particular time in LSU basketball, and in LSU athletics, in general, this should be considered ...

re: Sports Illustrated Top 25: Texas #5, LSU #8 - Metaloctopus
[quote]They have a top notch QB and a great coach, two of the most important things a college team can have. [/quote] They have a good QB, but I wouldn't label him as top notch. And Herman has not proven to be a great head coach, at this point. I'm not saying he doesn't have them moving in the...

re: Sports Illustrated Top 25: Texas #5, LSU #8 - Metaloctopus
I don't care about rankings, usually, but putting Texas at 5 is really ridiculous. Do they know how much that team lost from last year? Do they believe Herman is some kind of magician? I think they're top 20, but that's about it. Their defense is probably going to be really bad again....

re: 12 gumps on preseason all sec first team...such bs - Metaloctopus
[quote] moaning about every little thing like this that’s “disrespectful”[/quote] I don't think it's "disrespectful", I just think it's lazy. Individual awards and team success are two different matters. No one is arguing that LSU should be considered the favorites. Until they beat Bama, they hav...

re: Will Emery and Davis-Price be the new version of D. Davis and L. Toefield? - Metaloctopus
I think they CAN, absolutely. I liked that tandem, but it wasn't my personal favorite. I think these two could be as good as any tandem we've had, if they live up to their potential. I'm definitely most excited to see how they perform. I'm not hyped about the "new" offense, and won't be until I s...

re: 12 gumps on preseason all sec first team...such bs - Metaloctopus
i realize Bama has a lot of talent every year, so I'm not going to sit here and say "they ain't got no talent, mayne". But I think the perceived level of talent over there is highly over stated. I would rather do just about anything else, other than compliment Saban, but I have to in this case. T...

re: Eric Reid critical of LSU's lavish new locker room - Metaloctopus
A lot of people in here saying Reid has been misinterpreted. I wonder if those people just don't want to accept that Reid is a terrible ambassador of LSU. It's not that complicated to read between the lines of what's he's saying, from where I sit. By saying that the locker room he had 7 years ago...

re: Baseball #8 - Metaloctopus
My guess is it will go to Cabrera by default. The whole number 8 thing used to be about the guy who was not only one of the best players on the team, but who was seen as the emotional leader of the team. But sometimes you really don't have those kinds of guys who stand out in the emotional leader...

re: ESPN Way too Early Top 25 Basketball Poll has LSU at 24. - Metaloctopus
Looks like the media learned nothing from last year, when they criminally underrated LSU in the preseason, and then took forever to acknowledge the Tigers after they started slaying the SEC. The lesson was that Will Wade can coach. And there is more than enough talent on this team, with Wade at t...

re: Where is Bregman’s MLB power from? Only 21 HR’s at LSU 3 years - Metaloctopus
Bregman hit the ball insanely hard for the majority of his career at LSU. But he had a habit of lining out to left field. He lined out in that direction so often that, after a while, I stopped calling it "bad luck" and and just started saying "that's what he gets for pulling everything". He was much...
