re: I'm pulling for O to succeed - LSU GrandDad
Coach O is what, 16-5 as our HC and 10-4 in the SEC games. he's lost to bama twice, florida and msu once. he's had an okay start. i'm definitely pulling for him but he has to keep trending up. last years recruiting (partly miles but you've got to credit O for pulling it out) and this years is a g...

re: How good would lsu be??? If only they had a - LSU GrandDad
Etling is a pretty good QB. but not a guy that is a game changer. it's been so long since we've had a really good QB I can't even remember. seems like we've been playing with one hand tied behind our back. the last time we beat y'all in the SECCG it was our special teams that did it; mostly t...

re: who i would like to see LSU finish with - LSU GrandDad
[quote] No QB. Prob good enough for top 10, which is fine. A lot better than where it was a couple months ago.[/quote] sure top 10 is fine. but I am not hung up on that at all. at this stage of the game I think needs should trump ratings. I would rather sign 2 RB's and a QB than have too many DB...

who i would like to see LSU finish with - LSU GrandDad
imo, we are loaded at safety and CB already. I would really like to see... -both Joiner and Pooka. I think Joiner is a bruiser and Pooka would be great in Canada offense -Marshal; even tho I think this class is loaded with WR, marshal is a future superstar -either Rodgers or Foster at QB. w...

re: Defensive depth chart for next year will be crazy deep - LSU GrandDad
our depth at safety makes me wonder why we are even recruiting on this year. and I think we don't need a lot of CB's either. 1 or probably 2. this class needs a quality QB and a quality RB (maybe 2 more) and a quality WR. I just hate to see us have so many guys on the bench in the backfield and ...

re: New Years Day will decide if we are truly "coming". - LSU GrandDad
not at all. that would make us 10-3 and that's "okay" as far as performance goes. NEXT YEAR will really define if O is on the rise or not. he will not be able to afford a slow start like this year as we have a monster schedule. Miami will kill us if we start like we did this year. it is uber impo...

re: Longhorns hire TCU AD - LSU GrandDad
this seems to be a damn good hire. their interim was not so hot. ex player turned trial lawyer. if tejas really wants a successful football team I think this man can get it done. and that doesn't mean with herman. it means herman better start performing. ...

re: Class star average according to Rivals - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Plus, there is a direct correlation between recruiting class rankings and ranking in final ap poll.[/quote] of course there is but there is not a direct cause and effect in every instance. for example, miles was bringing in top 5 classes but not finishing in the top 5. using only average s...

re: Class star average according to Rivals - LSU GrandDad
[quote] It’s very possible this class ends around a 3.7 average [/quote] this is very respectable. once again I stress the importance of balance and recruiting for future needs. in the past we got off sync and, as someone said, we were over loaded at some positions and weak at other positions. I ...

I guess it depends on ...

re: Austin Thomas mentioned as a candidate for a job at UT - LSU GrandDad
[quote]What are you talking about his job has diminished? [/quote] the fact that he can no longer go out and recruit literally means he has less job duties. less means diminished. when one's job responsibilities are increased they usually get more money and vice versa. with the hire of a recr...
