re: Stars DO matter? - I20goon
[quote]quote: this recruiting class is going to finish in the top 10. I would be highly impressed if this is true but doubtful. Soon see but CO and staff seem to be doing a good job so far.[/quote]Well, to intentionally introduce a sidetrack here... This, and many other threads, question th...

re: LSU is making progress with several... - I20goon
[quote]If the JUCO guys are counted as "transfers" they go against the 85 and we'll be able to sign 25, PLUS those 3, making a total of 28.[/quote]True. JUCO guys are always considered transfers, but they do have to count against some class. I'm just not sure which one the transfers in (last year)...

re: New signing rules and attrition - I20goon
[quote]Terry the Tiger[/quote]Most of the time...yes, agreed. Transfers like we had this offseason aren't going to happen every year. If the NCAA would like to force the old "preferred walk-on" system that Nebraska used so well, I'm all for it. I think LSU and this staff pulling from LA & TX ta...

re: who i would like to see LSU finish with - I20goon
1. A QB I think we will take a QB. Following Canada's "fool's errand" trip they'll evaluate chances and narrow it down to one and tell him "we've decided we want you in this class". Right now: Foster, Rogers (long shot flip?), Bohannon. Maybe Corral gets an offer depending on how Canada percieve...

re: Class star average according to Rivals - I20goon
[quote]I really want to not be ugly. Lol. But it honestly appears like you have never followed recruiting before and you get your info from the rant. In 2014, we lost Cam Robinson. That's really it. We passed on Hootie for Jamal Adams. We weren't after Cam Sims. In 2016, the totality of the players ...

re: Austin Thomas mentioned as a candidate for a job at UT - I20goon
[quote]he's almost assuredly not going to be allowed to recruit at UT AT recruiting was a freak occurrence last year and it's criminal that he was allowed to recruit for LSU this year. we got lucky by a stupid decision by the NCAA in allowing O to sign an ancient positional coach so that AT coul...

re: Stars DO matter? - I20goon
I think in the grand scheme of things, 4* and 5* need to be considered basically the same. Too many moving pieces to separate them especially position coaching (i.e. development) and their own individual effort. That being said... I don't think 3* should be considered in the same breath as 4*. ...

re: Austin Thomas mentioned as a candidate for a job at UT - I20goon
[quote]quote: There is the possibility that AT would recruit in that coaches spot, not the DL isnt Meatball the new DL?[/quote]yes, but instead of recruiting for him the point I was making is that as of Jan 9th there will be a 10th coaching spot that he could recruit for. Possibly. Once Pete's...

re: Class star average according to Rivals - I20goon
[quote]Most of the 3 star kids that have exploded at LSU were Louisiana kids. Texas 3 star kids seemed to fail or underachieve.[/quote]Never thought about looking at a singular star rating vs home state. Very interesting. Just for noting that trend you deserve a round of thanks. Not because of so...

re: Coach O will build LSU into a powerhouse again - I20goon
[quote]Sometimes it takes a serious humbling (Troy) to make the overall team better than the individual parts. [/quote]I'm casting a very wary eye that isn't required every year. Ok, fine... if it took that and was a one time thing and it that has lasting effect over seasons, many seasons. But...

re: Class star average according to Rivals - I20goon
[quote]quote: 2012 was Miles worst class at 3.22 That was a complete stinker[/quote]In my view that was the year/class that started our problems in the trenches. Studrawa was overwhelmed being OL coach and OC, and Haley just seemed to get lazy after being awesome (or was copying Chavis). ...

re: Austin Thomas mentioned as a candidate for a job at UT - I20goon
[quote]Not "always". Only since Orgeron hired Jenkins when he got the interim job last September. They obtained a waiver from the NCAA for Austin to recruit for Jenkins. They structured Jenkins deal so he was a transient employee (basically month to month) and this allowed them to get the waiver for...

re: Saddick Charles looked good this year. - I20goon
[quote]Is Traore a true LT?[/quote]damn sure a true OT. No conversions here. He's tailor made for being on an island. On the Left? Depends on whether they can "tweak" some of his technique/posture enough. I say he's got the feet. Obvious he's got the length (hence the two together = range)...

re: CC: Grimes listed as a possible candidate for OC at BYU - I20goon
[quote]Bentley is a pipe dream. He’s comfortably running his elite training camp. IF he ever decided to, he’d be devilishly successful. The guy’s credited with techniques that have significantly improved the pro game. Kevin will always be a warm fuzzy pick for me and I would love to see it. ...

re: CC: Grimes listed as a possible candidate for OC at BYU - I20goon
[quote]That's bizarre. Grimes was never an OC. Seems like a strange move.[/quote]He's been a AHC and a recruiting game coordinator at 3 stops (incl. LSU). All at P5 schools. Granted, RGC means different things at different places, and it's not coordinating, but it always has alot to do with both...

re: Boom! #1 JUCO OT Badara Traore Commits! - I20goon
[quote]He was just being polite to Texas writers. He had his mind made up a long time ago.[/quote]Appears to be the case. Also appears he was heavy lean before game visit, and that sealed the deal (judging by the article tke857 posted)....

re: Canada making headway with Matt Corral - I20goon
[quote]I guess the question is "is he worth the gamble".[/quote]Simply from a strategy standpoint, not knowing jack crap about his real attitude, I'd say yes because we will have a rsFR and SO QB that we have high degrees of confidence in already. IF you are going to take the risk, this is the year...

re: Austin Thomas only makes 125k and needs a raise - I20goon
[quote]Again, what do other schools pay their version of Austin Thomas? [/quote]There's only two GM's in CFB. He's the tip of the spear... so we're talking more of value in the term "market value". And do remember NCAA and budgetary limitations. AT is doing several of those jobs you mentioned f...
