re: Should've never pulled Sanders - LSU GrandDad
[quote] Did anyone even pay attention to the interview they did with Mainieri before the 4th inning? He said he wanted to limit Sanders pitches today, and that's what he did. [/quote] not only that but there was a thread this morning which gave the pitch count of all of our guys in the tourney. ...

re: BBQ Hog anyone ? - LSU GrandDad
[quote] love seeing the flood of celebratory threads from LSU fans after games with us [/quote] yea, and y'all never start threads after you beat LSU either. of course, you don't beat LSU very often so maybe it's just the numbers game. ...

re: What were you thinking when Peterson walked up to bat? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]You don't understand baseball don't you? It's called showing up a team putting a pitcher up there to bat. You must be an Astro fan and watch too much National League or little league baseball. [/quote] it's amazing how much fail there is in this post. you must be one dumb mofo...

re: Athlon predicts what top 25 will look like at season's end: LSU not included - LSU GrandDad
Athlon is not even relevant any more and this shows why. Auburn ain't gonna be 7th, Florida isn't making 17th and the Aggies will not be ranked. LSU will end up in the top 25 though....

re: if LSU gets 8 wins does that mean they exceeded expectations? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]I say playoffs or fire Orgeron.[/quote] dumb. so we could end up 12-0 lose by one point in the SEC CG earn a rose bowl bid and he should be fired? If your bar is a playoff spot every year you will never attract a coach. that would gurarantee real destruction of the program...

[quote]Miss St, Miami, and Florida, I don't want to hear excuses about[/quote] excuses? either of those teams can beat just about any other team in the land on a good day. MSU returns just about every starter from last year and have a proven excellent QB. [quote] Losing to them is never accep...

re: my take on the 2018 football season - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Nothing anti O about anything I said. I’m not expecting an 8-4 season at all. I’ve been one of the biggest fans of this Burrow signing. It is a paradigm shifting acquisition for this program and we are all finally in a position to see the QB struggles that have haunted the program come to a...

re: my take on the 2018 football season - LSU GrandDad
[quote] You can't remember 2011?[/quote] oh, I certainly do. remember, we played bama twice. I think our regular season schedule is just as tough this year (Miami instead of Oregon) with MSU and maybe Auburn being better this year. I can't remember our other tough OOC opponent that year. west Vir...

re: my take on the 2018 football season - LSU GrandDad
[quote]8-4 is still the ceiling for this team.[/quote] I disagree that 8-4 is their "ceiling". it may end up being their record but I think they have the talent to be better than that, despite the toughest schedule I can remember. I think MSU, Bama, Auburn and Georgia are all playoff contenders a...

[quote]All of those teams had disasters at QB and very subpar defense by LSU standards[/quote][quote]If O goes 8-4 with a loaded Aranda D and an Urban Meyer trained fourth year player at QB he should be fricking toast. Period. [/quote] I somehow was hoping this would not be an anti O (or pro O) ...

my take on the 2018 football season - LSU GrandDad
I think this team has the POTENTIAL to be one of the best teams we have fielded for quite a while. the team seems very balanced for a change. 1. DEFENSE. frankly, I was disappointed in our defense a number of games last year. it not only failed to maintain the lead against notre dame but it gave ...

re: FWIW, Alabama grabbed Jake Coker from FSU as a grad transfer in 2014... - LSU GrandDad
tiger fans eat their own. our coaches are subjected, by some, to the harshest criticism no matter what they do. my consolation is I believe it is more of a message board thing than a person to person thing. just about every LSU fan I've met support the team and program and even while concerned are n...

re: Ensminger appreciation thread! - LSU GrandDad
I am a little skeptical of SE but imo, he has a bigger upside than our last 4 OC's. Canada, Camaron, Crowton and Stud. if Sullivan is indeed a teacher of technique and our QB can find our open guys (OL has to give him time) this may be a turnaround point for LSU's offense. how many years hav...

re: OK, now who transfers? - LSU GrandDad
imo, JM and MB definitely should stick around. JM may actually start the season and be the number one backup if he loses the job. the number 1 backup is always just one play away from being the starter. Plus, some running plays can be designed for him. LM seems to be the one with the most to los...
