re: Les Miles : Class Act - nvasil1
[quote]As bad as the AU game was, the UF game still pisses me off more for some reason.[/quote] I feel the same. The Auburn game had shitty offense throughout. It looked like we had the better team against Florida, yet we lost. That will always bother me because I think we would've crushed F...

re: Les Miles : Class Act - nvasil1
[quote]Honestly I’d take the 06 team as his best team that should have probably won a championship[/quote] Agreed. I hate to go down the referee rabbit hole, but it was tough to accept the calls in Auburn and Gainesville that year. Corso's comments about our matchup with Notre Dame in the Sugar ...

re: Les Miles : Class Act - nvasil1
[quote]Love Les as a man but I can’t forgive him for the mismanagement of his most talented teams. 11’ 13’ 16’ [/quote] 2011 was mismanaged for one game. He doesn't get a pass for that night, but if not for the system giving Bama a mulligan, Les would still be here with one of the greatest...

re: Olbermann back to ESPN - nvasil1
[quote]If he sticks to sports then everything's good, right?[/quote] Theoretically, yes. He just doesn't seem worth the headache anymore. Frankly, I think he's more likely to stick to sports on-air than play nicely with others off-air. And if he really offered that much to ESPN's programming, ...

re: Active shooter detained at Indiana Middle School - 2 taken to hospital - nvasil1
[quote]Could it be they've been "brainwashed" by video games[/quote] I've never bought this excuse. Before video games, kids had cap guns and played war out in the yard. Before violent movies, there were violent plays. Do we blame Romeo & Juliet for spikes in teenage suicide? I do believe the...

re: Life In A Socialized System - nvasil1
I saw a flier in my neighborhood this week for a socialism conference in Chicago this summer. It was equal parts comical and terrifying. It wasn't very clear what they'll be doing for three days, but they used these photos, so I guess a lot of this. [img]https://socialismconference.org/wp-c...

re: Olbermann back to ESPN - nvasil1
Olbermann is truly at his best doing sports, but even if he wasn't unhinged and notoriously difficult to work with, I don't see how he moves the needle with ESPN's audience these days. His peak was nearly 25 years ago....

re: 100 things to watch 100 days until college football kicks off (LSU related) - nvasil1
[quote]If I were Orgeron I’d plaster them all over the weightroom, meeting rooms, everywhere[/quote] I agree. Orgeron has been more forthcoming about his failures as a head coach than most of his defenders on here. He'd be the first person to admit a 7 or 8 win season would be another one. E...

re: So can we stop with the Warriors are best team of all time bs? - nvasil1
[quote]I'm honestly not convinced that Kerr or Longley would see any playing time on this Warriors team. I'm not sure what to think about how Harper and Rodman would fare. [/quote] I agree with most of your post, but I don't like comps across eras like this. It assumes all things are equal. Lik...

re: So can we stop with the Warriors are best team of all time bs? - nvasil1
The Warriors are great, but their legacy might be just a team of frontrunners, if they lose this series. They played like arse down the stretch of the last two games and I don't believe they get enough grief for blowing a 3-1 Finals lead as a 73-win team. All-time greats don't do that IMO....

re: Fans don’t think LSU is a blue blood - nvasil1
[quote]Gene Stallings[/quote] Can't believe I forgot about him. He's really the only example of a head coach who won a national championship after failing at his first job. And like you said, he was a Junction Boy and actually won the SWC one year, so he had a little more clout behind him....

re: The big question: What is Paul’s injury? - nvasil1
[quote]It's amazing a team with 4 All-Pros, a team that literally had a player beg KD on the phone in a parking lot to join their 73 win squad, is counting on a player being injured to even win their conference.[/quote] Greatest team in the history of sports. Right?...

re: Fans don’t think LSU is a blue blood - nvasil1
[quote]Has any one of those programs ever hired a head coach with a losing record?[/quote] Of the recognized blue bloods, Paul Hackett is the only one I can think of. John Blake was a career DL coach when OU hired him, although he hadn't been a HC before. I might have missed somebody, but the...

re: Fans don’t think LSU is a blue blood - nvasil1
[quote]They dropped off because they refused to change and the game passed them by. Sticking with the option offense killed them. To many athletes now, the option doesn't work anymore.[/quote] That's revisionist history. They fired Solich after a 10-win season, two years after playing for the nati...
