  1. We are witnessing a team that is Weak, Weak, Weak in the trenches, undisciplined in general, and has nothing it can hang its hat on. That was pathetic and we got exposed in a major way. We had two warm up games and still came out and layed an egg. I suspect this will be a season of survival.
  2. This is a complete team embarrassment. [poop], even against Bama last year, or in the 2011 NC Game, you could admire the defensive performance. This is the most embarrassing game since? Perhaps since sometime when Nick was coaching. I don't give a [poop] how young the players are, how new the Coordinators are, how improved Miss. State is. CEO deserves to get raked over the coals for this just the same way Les would have last season if this happened on his watch. Incapable in every phase of the game. This game hasn't been competitive for nearly the entire game.
  3. Open Carry State Mom. =)
  4. Never been to a game in Starkville. I'd imagine those damn cow bells must be more annoying than your wife yelling at you on the morning of your worst hangover. I know the SEC is supposed to have some sort of rules to this, right? Noise makers. But what is really going on in there, because anyone can skirt the rules. Are you allowed to just bring in your homemade cow bell?
  5. Yeah, the Seahawks early 2nd round pick this recent draft was very badly hurt in what was reported as an ATV accident. No further info has come out because the family has asked for privacy, but before the kid could even get his career started it appears he's already out for his rookie season. Some have speculated it could have been life threatening and may still derail his entire NFL career. Soulja boy, Kellen Winslow Jr., screwed up his career by trying to do tricks on a motorcycle. He was able to play again, but was never the same and cost himself millions of dollars in the process. On the field he's like the Tasmanian Devil, but off the field Guice needs to start making business decisions. He's about to become very, very rich so he needs to keep himself clean.
  6. Gotta say, Minter was a tackling machine at LSU. His pro career has been so-so. But Kwon switching to the middle at the Pro level, then Debo going to the middle, now Duke kind of switching from more of an inside guy last season to weakside in the Falcons defense..... These damn NFC South opponents are seeing talent and plugging it in. Kudos to our LSU LBs and guys that waited their turn, believed in the team aspect and the guy in front of them, then capitalized once their opportunity was there to shine.
  7. LSU leads all of college football in most colleges represented on 2017 NFL opening day rosters, according to the NCAA. The list includes players on active rosters, injury reserved lists, practice squads and the commissioner's exempt list. LSU's 51 players is easily ahead of the two second-place teams, Florida and USC, which have 45 players each. Alabama tied Miami for fourth place with 44, and Georgia was tied Clemson at No. 8 on the list with 38. Other SEC schools in the top 20 are No. 11 Auburn with 34 players and Tennessee and Texas A&M tied for No. 20 with 29 players each. The NCAA website said of LSU, "The Tigers are the lone program to reach the 50-player mark. Although LSU hasn't fulfilled its national championship aspirations in 10 seasons, a lot of talent comes through Baton Rouge, and purple and yellow still runs deep in the NFL. "LSU has produced elite talent on both ends of the ball with the likes of defensive backs Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu (Arizona Cardinals), as well as star wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. (New York Giants) and Jarvis Landry (Miami Dolphins). Look for rookies Jamal Adams (New York Jets) and Leonard Fournette (Jacksonville Jaguars) to make immediate impacts as well this season." http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2017/09/lsu_has_more_players_on_nfl_op.html#incart_river_home

  10. Heard JJ's now surpassed $18 million after starting with a goal of either $200,000 or $1 million depending on which article you read. Even up here in Seattle, as I pay for my groceries through the credit card reader, I'm offered the chance to donate to the Hurrican Harvey Recovery. That has to be making a difference if it's happening nationwide. Clerks here must be trained because if they see you've chosen a couple bucks to aid the recovery, they thank you. All the times I've given to Children's or other ones, they haven't been going out of their way to purposefully thank the customer. Pretty cool our technology is so that very quickly we can aid the recovery nationwide. Sure damn hope it ends up in the right hands (fingers crossed). Tough times. When the flooding in BR happened last year my brother's company took people off of jobs and sent them to do relief work throughout the area. There were some great things about it and some pretty sad/rude responses to it from some ungrateful residents. It's clear to me that there are much greater resources and organization to this response when compared to Katrina. And thank heavens so. Let's keep it going.
  11. Piggy backing off of Hou, he did look good and, from all accounts, even this early in his career he's shown he belongs. LSU has had an incredible run of RBs with nary a year off. IMO '18 had a greater question mark at the RB position than any season I can recall in recent history. This is partially due the injuries and unproven nature of Nick Brossette, lack of depth, etc. With Clyde showing up and knowing he's going to see the field quite a bit this season, it puts my concerns at ease. I suspect we'll take minimum three RBs in the 2018 class.
  12. And then what is O going to do? I'll just go ahead and enjoy this run because these two are the best. I'm excited.
  13. Correct. And it's a distinct possibility over the next couple of offseasons.
  14. Not if we lose our top notch Coordinators. Success always leads to your guys moving on to promotions. And the Brain Drain is real and it affects the team. Mightily in our case because O can't call a game in any way shape or form.
