re: If there is no FB season whether fall or spring how will schools like La Tech - LSU GrandDad
the answer to your question can be found the the financial reports of a public university. i'm not going to do the work but i strongly suspect that schools like Tech LOSE money on athletics; yes, including football. it should be easy for the college financial dept. to come up with a calculation ...

re: What Mullen did last year was amazing - LSU GrandDad
Mullen's a damn good coach; he's who i wanted LSU to hire when we canned Miles. of course, i'm glad we hired Orgeron but Mullen would have been damn good too. people just don't like him very much. he's so nerdy he's kind of creepy. :lol:...

re: Do we really want to lose our seniors’ eligibility for a farce of a season? - LSU GrandDad
look what happened to college baseball when the seniors did NOT lose their eligibility. you end up with gazillions on players on each team and there's not room for that. it's a lose/lose deal...

re: So instead of 1 out runners 2nd and 3rd CPM got 2 out - LSU GrandDad
idiot. the blame goes clearly on the shoulders of the hitter. the dude is a sophomore and should be on the damn bench. in fact, he should have immediately been benched. he not only missed the pitch, he half heartedly swung at it. it's clear to me he has a piss poor attitude and has no damn business ...

[quote]To use another sport, if on 4th and 4 would Coach O call for a qb sneak and then fuss at the players for not executing?

re: To all that are bitching about pitching changes.... - LSU GrandDad
true post BUT people ALWAYS bitch about pitching changes if the outcome isn't perfect (like Hill on Friday). it's like if it doesn't work it's a bad move in their heads. perhaps they, unlike the rest of us, can actually forecast the future. and, of course, they are much better in knowing than ou...
