re: New playoff format... Would this work? - TDlurker
Existing 4-team playoff format. Conference champs (heck, make it ALL conference champs, not just P5) are eligible, so long as they finish the regular season ranked __ or higher. As long as you're eligible (highly ranked before championship game), and you go on to win the conference championship,...

re: Have to admit pretty disappointing what this playoff system has turned into.. - TDlurker
[quote]Teams that don’t play in the CCG should definitely be excluded as long as you hold the CCG result AGAINST the loser.[/quote]Couldn't agree more now that all P5 conferences have a championship game, and it blows my mind that the committee doesn't limit entre to conference champs. It would hav...

re: If the D can put together a complete game - TDlurker
Against Texas, Florida and Alabama, LSU gave up 5, 4 and 4 third down plays of 10 or more yards. Against Auburn and Miss. St., LSU gave up only 1 long 3rd down play each. With it's reliance on the run, I'm guessing OM will have less 3rd luck than even Auburn. Meanwhile, the Ole Miss defense is ...

re: Anyone know what the fine is for tearing down the goalposts at someone else's stadium? - TDlurker
It almost happened in Kentucky after the Bluegrass Miracle. Security was overwhelmed with the KY fans who had stormed the field and were already in the act of tearing down the goalposts at the other end of the field. The TD was scored directly in front of the LSU fans, many of whom stormed the fie...

LSU vs Alabama record - TDlurker
Started looking through the record books to examine how much of the lopsided record of the LSU vs Alabama series is attributable to Bear Bryant and Nick Saban (answer: most of it), but what’s really interesting is how much scheduling ‘luck’ has played in helping Alabama pad the series record. Alabam...

re: Very bold prediction for Saturday - TDlurker
Tua doesn't start, and after stuffing them on 2nd down, Delpit gets a pick 6 off a rattled Jones. Next possession, Burrow trucks a DB on 3rd and long, igniting the LSU bench, and the rout is on....

re: The hype for Saturday doesn’t match 2011 - TDlurker
[quote]there was more urgency to win in 2011 under the BCS[/quote]Up until that point, it was thought that the BCS Championship Game's creation in 2006 had solved that problem, so yeah there was more urgency on winning your conference that year. Whatever you think of the playoffs, you are experienc...

re: Hypothetical North End Zone expansion... - TDlurker
[quote]Tiger Stadium was optimal at 82k[/quote] This. The problem isn't just parking and ticket demand, but ingress and egress. With the river to the west, the lakes to the east, there simply isn't enough street access to campus to accommodate game day crowds as it is. In fact, I believe that th...

Progression of LSU's Defense - TDlurker
Ignoring possessions where LSU's defense did well (i.e. 3 and outs, or limited yardage), here is how quality opponnents' possessions looked against the LSU D. Not all of these possessions resulted in points, but if they were sustained drives that helped to tire the LSU D, I counted them. The posit...

re: What is it that makes LSU football so important to us - TDlurker
I grew up on LSU football, attended LSU, made my best friends there, met my wife there. It's a part of me. LSU is my alma mater. Fond memories attending LSU football games as a kid, and later as a student wakens a tender glow that recalls a familiar love of the place. LSU molded me into a man. I...
