re: Booger McFarland on off the bench this morning - atltiger6487
[quote]Like it’s not the Coaches fault Danny Etling can’t hit a deep ball to an open Chark. [/quote]true, but if the coaches know a QB can't make that throw, then design different plays that the QB CAN make, based on the particular QB's skills. In other words, run an offense and call plays that f...

[quote]You are making a parallel where there is none re: Orgeron and Aranda. [/quote]I did no such thing. I merely said that after the O disaster, we're going to hire a proven head coach. I never implied that O also had no head coaching experience. We all know about the Ole Miss disaster. ...

re: Clay Travis predicted LSU's top 3 candidates if a change is made this year - atltiger6487
I'm not a fan on any of those, but Kiffin will land a P5 job soon enough. I realize he's a turd personally, but he's a really good offensive coach, and I think he rehabilitated his image enough at Bama and now at FAU. One more great year there and he'll get a lot of interest from bigger schools. ...

there can still be returns, it's just up to the receiving team. And it's not being a pussy to understand that brain injuries are a very real and very severe issue. To simply say "MAN UP" and don't make changes to the rules is simply burying your head in the sand. Football will change (and has...
