re: CollegeHoopsWatch -LSU Basketball is on firm ground with the talent and overall foundation - Alt26
And they will still be picked to finish 6th or 7th in the league this year. That shows both the expected strength of the SEC this season AND many coaches'/media's refusal to give Wade the benefit of the doubt due to the off-court stuff. Over the last three seasons only ONE school has finished in...

re: McConnel buys ads on 100 radio stations urging people to get vaccinated - Alt26
Serious question, to what end? Does more vaccinations = a return to "normalcy"? And if so, what level of those vaccinated throughout the country equates to success or "enough"? That's been my biggest gripe throughout this whole episode. There is no metric of "success" or goal other than, pres...

[quote]So play Bama, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Arkansas twice. Tough schedule, but should be exiciting.[/quote] (At least until the conf. expands) LSU always plays Alabama, Arkansas and A&M twice per year. However, that is a tough draw to get UK and Tenn. as the rotating 2x teams this season. T...

re: SEC Men's Basketball Opponents Announced - Alt26
On July 28...on paper...that is a pretty tough conf. schedule The two rotating home-and-home opponents are Kentucky and Tennessee. Both are projected to be Top 25 teams to start the season. Then LSU gets Auburn (possible top 25 team) and Florida (LSU hasn't played well there). There are ra...

re: I can't rewatch games with Jordan Jefferson. - Alt26
[quote]Know why this is true? With the exception of Mettenberger's last year at LSU, we didn't have a QB that could consistently go through progressions and throw the ball accurately down the field. So our QBs actually handcuffed our offensive philosophy, not the other way around. [/quote] What ...

re: I can't rewatch games with Jordan Jefferson. - Alt26
First, he graduated nearly 10 years ago...let it go. There have been worse LSU QBs. Second, it's hard for me to blame ANY LSU QB from 2009 - 2016 (perhaps a few years longer) for poor play as the general philosophy on offense was to avoid the middle of the field in the passing game at all costs ...

re: 100% objective QB stats last year for y'all to interpret - Alt26
If I were making the choice I would go with Johnson. The reasons are because, while not a "burner", he is mobile enough to impact a game whereas Brennan isn't, at all. Also, I think Johnson showed the ability to make more, different, throws than Brennan. No question Brennan has the stronger arm. ...

re: 100% objective QB stats last year for y'all to interpret - Alt26
The combined stats aren't the best basis of comparison. In two of the 5 games Johnson played he came in during blowouts (Alabama and Auburn). That's a whole different situation than starting a game when it is 0-0 or playing in a pressure situation. To lesser extent, you could say the same for the...

re: Louisiana covid curve is steepest in nation right now….months of progress gone in 2 weeks - Alt26
I'm sure it is multi-faceted, but what is all of a sudden causing steep incline? It's just seems to defy logic that right at the beginning of January there is a huge peak...then a seemingly just as abrupt and sharp decline...only to now have a ridiculous incline seemingly out of nowhere? I doubt t...
