re: What will be JBE’s legacy as Governor? - macaoidh
Outmigration. He'll be known for outmigration. Something on the order of a net loss of 200,000 outmigrants. We're Ireland or Italy now....

re: Jordy Culotta said Woodward and the admin. are getting tired of coach O’s off the field - macaoidh
There is absolutely zero doubt at this point that Woodward is building a file on Orgeron. Everybody you talk to at LSU knows it. It isn't a secret over there. IF you didn't know that, this spring when Woodward went on Jim Engster's show and threw Orgeron under the bus for "politicizing" LSU fo...

re: GOP just won an election in suburban ATL by 26 pts...djt won by 4 in 2020 - macaoidh
Your interpretation is, well, your interpretation. Another interpretation is that those suburban wine moms have seen six months of what Democrat rule looks like and are horrified. They're back on the GOP. And yet another interpretation is that when you run an honest election and not one pollut...

re: Wade has a new member of the staff. - macaoidh
He was a manager at VCU when Wade was an assistant there under Shaka Smart. And he worked under Musselman at Nevada, then under Johnny Jones at Texas Southern. It looks like everywhere he's been their team has won. Not a bad hire of a young guy....

re: Is this an Omaha team next year? - macaoidh
You're a solution at catcher, whether that's a summer addition or a developmental win from the current roster, and a Friday night pitcher away from being a top-8 national seed. If they can teach McManus to be a serviceable backstop who can occasionally throw out runners (or, probably more likely,...

re: Weekend rotation options next year - macaoidh
There are a couple of others from the transfer portal who might figure in as well. They've been talked about here, and neither have been drafted in the first two days so they're definitely in play. But you should throw Fontenot into your list, because that was his ask in coming back. He's going t...

re: Y’all think JJ gives Fontenot a chance to be a starter? - macaoidh
My understanding is that's what the 11 p.m. meeting at the coach's office was about and it was a pretty short conversation. "Coach, all I really want is a shot to be a weekend starter." "Seems like we have an opening. If you want to audition for it, done." "Great. Thanks. I'm coming back."...

re: Official MLB Draft Thread (Dugas & DiGiacomo Returning) - macaoidh
[quote]Moscona keeps saying that no matter how you slice it, this was a bad day for LSU baseball. Seems like nothing unexpected happened and we got a good pitcher and Dugas and Fontenot back. Seems like we made out okay to me. Am I missing something?[/quote] We really wanted one of those catchers...

re: Any Chance of Carter Jensen or Ian Moller coming to BR? - macaoidh
[quote]This. I can’t imagine JJ would find it to be ideal having to go this route. At least he could take a shot at the Meridian CC guy.[/quote] The argument that we have three guys coming next year makes some sense to mitigate going after Priester, and maybe you're looking for a one-year transfe...

[quote]but I don’t expect McManus will even start at catcher next season. Why wouldn't he?[/quote] His defensive stats at Samford this year were... Not awesome. For most of the year there was another guy starting behind the plate for them and McManus was the DH. The guess is we're going...

[quote]Paul Gervase Why are you considering him a draft risk?[/quote] His summer league performance and the fact that they'll look harder at tall kids like that than they will normal-sized kids. Bollman is the bigger draft risk than Gervase. So far it looks like we'll have both in here, w...

re: Any Chance of Carter Jensen or Ian Moller coming to BR? - macaoidh
I wonder if Johnson won't make a run at Blaise Priester from Live Oak. He was one of the top-rated catchers in the draft and he signed with Meridian CC out of high school rather than a college, presumably thinking he was going pro. But with the job sort of open here, the NIL and Priester not hav...
