  1. Too Soon Jackwagon. I'm kidding, but I'm not. Everytime I think I'm past it, I see that frickin play or hear the Minnesota fans speak about their win and it just pisses me off.
  2. Place Kickers have always received the least coaching of any position on the team. At least in my lifetime. John Carney, a phenomenal, experienced, accurate Place Kicker used to try and take techniques and training away from Morten Andersen 30 years ago. It's not all just between the ears. You have to look no further than the Saints current Place Kicker Will Lutz and his story from Georgia State to Baltimore training camp and how's he performed as a Saint for two seasons. That will tell you a lot about kickers and what they do / do not recieve in the form of actual technique coaching. Hell, I remember Jason Elam and 'training camp legs' of the Broncos training camps teaching one another. I can't say I can recall a Place Kicker in an interview saying that his Special Teams coach is what helped him. It seems like most of the onus, teaching and learning is from Kickers to Kickers.

  4. Jarvis has 400 receptions in his first 4 seasons. Previous record was 342 by Anquan Boldin.
  5. If LSU wants to beat Alabama, it should hire Hugh Freeze as offensive coordinator Freeze would eventually again like to become a head coach. But like Lane Kiffin resurrecting his head coaching career by serving as Alabama's offensive coordinator for three years under Saban, Freeze needs LSU as much as Orgeron needs Freeze. There's one last compelling stat why Orgeron should hire Freeze. In LSU's last eight games against Alabama, beginning with the Tigers' 9-6 overtime win in the 2011 regular season followed by seven straight losses, LSU has scored eight offensive touchdowns. In Freeze's last three games vs. the Crimson Tide with back-to-back wins in 2014 and 2015 before losing 48-43 in 2016, Ole Miss scored 12 offensive touchdowns. http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2018/01/if_lsu_wants_to_beat_alabama_i.html#incart_most-read_
  6. To My LSU Family, My commitment to LSU in November of 2012 was one of the best decisions of my life. My five years at LSU has provided me with so many important life lessons that I will carry with me on my next journey. I have developed as a man and as a football player under some of the greatest coaches and defensive minds in the game. I am leaving with a quality education and I am currently pursuing my master’s degree. I have learned true commitment to something greater than myself, the LSU Legacy. It has been a tremendous privilege to wear the Purple and Gold every Saturday in Death Valley. To walk out of that tunnel, hit the “Win” bar, and see 102,000 of the greatest fans will be something I’ll always remember! I have gained best friends for life and consider my teammates my brothers. We worked so hard this year and went through so much but pushed through adversity. LSU and Louisiana possess the most special fans in all of college football. I would like to thank the coaches, my teammates and the former 18s for honoring me with this special number in my final season. I can’t express how much this honor has meant to me and my family to walk out on Saturday nights with this honorable number. I will carry LSU in my heart forever and will always return to support and cheer on the LSU Tigers. Geaux Tigers! #18 Christian LaCouture
  7. Bwahahahahaha The last word “I don’t yell at my assistants very much at all, I don’t think. I don’t ever recall getting really upset at Kirby.” — Alabama coach Nick Saban, referring to Georgia coach Kirby Smart
  8. Another OC who doesn't stay in one place very long. 5 teams in the last 6 years, we would be #6 in 7 years.
  9. Will be announcing today at noon at the U.S Army All American Bowl. James Smith's prediction: The pick: LSU I just do not see Joseph playing for any other program than his hometown Tigers. The Baton Rouge native has bonds with staff, players and students that trumps anything LSU's competitors can offer. If Joseph does commit to LSU and follows it with an official visit on Jan. 19, we expect him to shut everything down, thus cancelling the other trips on his calendar. We are fairly confident LSU will be the choice here and nothing has surfaced to sway us from that opinion.
  10. Very true. Very difficult to accomplish. Congrats to JD.
  11. I'm not saying you're incorrect, but if this is true, why didn't he have this stipulation in his contract increase from last offseason that made him the highest paid coordinator in the nation? College Station is less than 300 miles from Baton Rouge. Is this another FAIL on Alleva's part?
  12. For that type of money there should, at the least, be a stipulation that he cannot leave to another SEC school for anything other than a HC position. I don't see how that is unreasonable. http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/sports/lsu/article_bdbebfa2-f19b-11e7-bdc6-ff2a60f01c6c.html
