  1. Well, he came in at 5'11" and 175, so I'll stick with my prediction of 2nd rounder. But, I must admit, buzz is abound, so we'll see. It's always good for any Tiger to get drafted in the first and certainly it would help keep up the DBU moniker.
  2. He can go sell that ish somewhere else. In the year we signed Malachi and Adams, I was very pleased and wrote so on this forum. This time around, we lost out big time at a position where we have an incredible reputation, playing time to offer and a serious need for top notch talent. We're going to have to hope that our emphasis on the trenches pays big dividends. And fast.

  5. It's Official. Kevin Faulk hired as LSU football's Director of Player Development http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2018/01/lsu_announces_the_hire_of_kevi.html#incart_most-comments Faulk will join the staff as the Director of Player Development. According to an LSU press release, Faulk will work with LSU's football student-athletes on their academic direction, social development and overall quality of life with the goal of enhancing their development in the classroom, the community and on the football field.
  6. Either you're not reading well or I'm not explaining it well. You wrote DAM IT! And I explained to you that LSU, with the settlement, is actually saving money by having done the settlement.
  7. I'm all for it!
  8. We'll have to wait to see how much his new gig pays, but with it being Maryland, my guess is it won't be big, big dollars. He was owed $3.3 or $3.4 million from LSU over the next two seasons depending on which source you read. So let's just say $1.65 per. The last OC at Maryland was making $500k annually. So with that offset, LSU would have still been on the hook for $2.3 or $2.4 million. LSU paid out $1.7, so when the numbers come out, you can bet on LSU having saved some money in the settlement deal, no matter how inconsequential that amount is because it's peanuts in the grand scheme. From the bigger perspective, it isn't my money and there is no salary cap or such for paying NCAA coaches, so the dollar amount really doesn't matter. It's more about how LSU keeps making poor decisions, the optic that creates for the administration around the state and the nation, and how it impacts the team / program.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

  12. Jarvis has 400 receptions in his first 4 seasons. Previous record was 342 by Anquan Boldin.
  13. 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_
  14. 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
