Check out the Ala/LSU series win/loss numbers before Saban and get back to us.

Edit: Coach Bryant went 30 years without losing to LSU in Baton Rouge (1970-2000).

Without reading, did that mad Georgia fan show up pissed you didn’t use the “per participant” metric he just discovered this year?

Yeah, good thing we have a good home grown five star qb coming in next year. Google Walker Howard.

If I'm reading that graphic correctly, that is a lot of instate elite talent that LSU passed on or missed on.

It really is a state that could succeed off internal recruiting alone. They just keep holes from forming in their fence.

Umm, you just proved what I was saying.


The article in the OP literally stated "Per Capita, LA is producing the Most NFL Skill/speed talent, by a large margin"

So my post actually supports the OP and is 100% consistent with the analysis in the article in the OP. Alabama has 350,000 more people than LA and only has 1 more NFL player from its HS ranks in the NFL. Per capita analysis is typically done per 100,000 population (e.g., number of Strokes, Heart attacks, Cancer rates, etc per some population, Crime stats are done the same way, Economic stats the same way).


So I think you need to get a better understanding of the concept of "per capita analysis".

Yes but all those things can happen to all races,age or gender.

HS FB players are a tiny subset of the population (male,16,17 and year old) and the subset actually has to participate in the sport.

A state with a higher percentage of that subset that actually participates in FB will probably have a "per capita" advantage over a state with a lower percentage in that subset.

It's not apples to apples.

Has nothing to do with the past 10 seasons, dumbass.

Which is the timeframe he asked about.

Bryant retired after the 82 season, genius

Your next 6 coaches before Saban went 11-11 against LSU

Bama fans love revisionist history. Without it they have about 10 less titles

Your post is a perfect example of revisionist history.

Nope. Louisiana doesn't produce enough talent at positions like offensive line, quarterback. Sure, there's enough talent at WR, RB, DB, that LSU can build a good class every year, but we just don't produce many SEC caliber O-linemen.

Except you already has a massive losing record to us before Saban even built your program. Try again.

Oh so now you argument is you could only manage a .500 record with superior talent against Bama during some major periods of sanction?

Nobody was arguing on the per capita dumbass. The debate was if it meant anything when it came to results on the field/recruiting. And the answer is no, the overall number is what matters.

Incorrect. Elite OL is hard to find down there.

Speaking of revisionism, Alabama claims 18 titles. Of those, 13 are titles awarded by AP, UPI/coaches, BCS, or playoffs. Three of the remaining five are undefeated Rose Bowl winning teams.

Now, you were saying?
