re: Eric Reid takes a knee....on Veterans Day weekend - engl6914
Nobody made a big deal out of kneeling for a long time while it was going on. They were protesting police brutality, we understood. Fine. Then Trump made a deal out of it, saying it was disrespecting the flag. Now that’s all you hear about it. Where were all the “disrespecting” people before Trump ...

re: Buying away tickets through LSU - engl6914
I went to Tuscaloosa two years ago with StubHub tickets. Great seats. Sat with the Alabama fans which was fine—they were all very polite. The pom pom shaking in your field of view was annoying,but if you watch there are moments when you can take it and slide it under your seat. ...

re: Is it me or did we look more physical than Bama? - engl6914
If you go read on the Alabama board there are those saying that Bama was beaten on both sides of the line. Others, the ones who predicted on Friday a Bama win by 32-0 or worse, are saying LSU played way over their heads. There’s sort of a stunned and relieved attitude and a new sense they are not go...

re: LSU Fans, Never forget 2011! - engl6914
Best game I ever saw physically present in the stadium. Better even than the Florida game we made all the 4th downs. Next was the NFL title game 1966, in the Cotton Bowl stadium, the Cowboys and Packers the year before the Ice Bowl. I’ll stop before boring everyone. ...

re: Best place to park at Brant-Denny Stadium??? - engl6914
I always stay in Meridian Friday night then drive up to Tuscaloosa, exit I-59/20 at I-359 and drive into downtown. Generally park on the street and then barhop my way down University Blvd to the stadium. It’s all good area. Walking back to the vehicle from the stadium takes 20-25 minutes. Exiting th...

re: Can someone logically explain the -21 game spread? - engl6914
Odds are set so the gamblers betting will place half the total money on each team. Ideally each team will have the same amount of money wagered on it. When you see the original odds change it’s because too much money is coming in on one team. The bookmaker uses the money he gains from the losing tea...

re: For those who have been to Tuscaloosa - engl6914
I go to this game every every time. Stay in Meridian. Drive day of game to Tuscaloosa and exit on I-359 and go into downtown to Univerisity Blvd and park there. There are bars around you can watch TV and get taped up for the game. Walk down University Blvd to the stadium, about 20 minutes. Exit same...

re: How to beat Bama - engl6914
My thought is to move the linebackers a step or two closer to the line and create “seven in the box.” Do whatever has to be done to slow the Alabama rush game. If this works it channels the Alabama effort into passing and into our defensive strength—the defensive backfield. I think LSU will score s...

re: the irony about no one giving us a dog's chance in hell vs alabama - engl6914
[quote]No one thinks the team is intimidated. But that’s not the point. Bama has a better coach and has out recruited LSU, especially along the lines. And that is where the game is won. They blow us away on both lines. That’s reality. And we don’t have the QB to give us a puncher’s chance in thi...

re: the irony about no one giving us a dog's chance in hell vs alabama - engl6914
Who here, raise your hands, thought LSU had a chance when down three touchdowns to a top 10 team? Point is, this is an unusual team that doesn’t seem to be intimidated. There’s some personal factor you can’t put your finger on. All you can do is stand back and marvel at something rare and inexplica...

re: Don't bother watching, Hannigriff says LSU can't even compete with Alabama - engl6914
[quote]It's not realistic to believe LSU can be competitive in this game. [/quote] We could have had this discussion before the Auburn game. We could have had it again at the top of our voices when LSU was down by three touchdowns. How rare is it for an unranked team down by three touchdowns to c...

re: Was anyone on here actually at the Halloween Billy Cannon punt return game? - engl6914
Was listening on the radio in Shreveport. What I remember was announcer Politz marveling at the tackling pile ups. And then when Cannon got as far as the LSU 30 the screaming of the crowd drowned out Politz for the rest of the play. Finally you heard the shouted word “touchhdown,” though the screami...

re: Early spread on LSU vs. Bama: Tide -24. - engl6914
I’ve lived in Birmingham and know the culture. Things are very easy for Alabama now. They looked on Florida State as their big game, and perhaps Auburn. They think of themselves as entitled, and have a certain disdain for others. Sure Sabin is one of the great sports psychologists, but LSU beating t...

Has it happened before? Down three touchdowns to a top 10 team and come back to win? - engl6914
Sorry if this has been covered; time to read is an issue for me--but has any unranked team ever been down three touchdowns to a top 10 rated team and come back to win? It must be very rare. ...

re: And the Leading tackler in the SEC is? You only get one chance - engl6914
I've watched linebackers at LSU since Mike Anderson, and there are All-Americans in that group. But none of them have made me sit up in my chair and exclaim, "Whoa, dude!" until Devin White. The only other LSU player to compare him to is Tyran Mathieu. The only linebacker that made me sit up like...
