re: The “greatest team ever”* only had 10 players drafted?

By the end of the year, I off the top of my head i can count these players that didn't play for LSU:

Arik Gilbert
Derek Stingley
Racey McMath
Jamar Chase
Terrace Marshall
Tyler Shelvin
Neil Farrell
Justin Thomas
Kary Vincent (Drafted)

Most Started in 2019... There are waaaaay more.

A microcosm of the SEC in General as referenced by your many posters that say that LSU opted out....disparaging their competition, just like they said that ND and OSU didn't belong there.




LSU was not a microcosm of anything but LSU. LSU had BY FAR the most COVID issues in the country of a power 5 team.

The SEC, in general, did not have a ton of COVID opt outs compared to some of the rest of the country. LSU was hit the hardest and there really wasn't a close 2nd other than maybe South Carolina once their season collapsed and Muschamp was fired.


But yes, as noted, I'm not arguing best of all time or anything. I think this team could have done it in a normal year (and would have), but they didn't get the opportunity and they had to do it in a weird year.

kentucky was floating the idea of not even playing you.

let's not float this season as a regular 10 game SEC season. you can do that if you want....but it wasn't. still a great team and an amazing season.

but this board is proof itself. the bama posters had it right....OSU had no right to be there. beating these *teams is still a righteous thing.

let's not act like it was the most amazing season ever.

They had serious COVID issues and that game was by far the one that was the most effected. I doubt that game is 63-3 if they have all their guys playing. It's not 30-23 or anything, but it wouldn't have been nearly as bad.

oh, i thought one post ago, that LSU was the worst off and only a microcosm of itself.

Kentucky's issues were for 1 week because of contract tracing.

LSU's were players leaving the team/choosing not to play the season.


You obviously understand the difference, right?

any other 90 degree bending the conversation you'd like to add, Gumby?

So what is the excuse for OSU....I heard here that they "didn't even belong in the big 10 championship....and they'll get smashed by us (BAMA) because they don't even belong in the first place."

after you've walked between those rain drops we can talk about any other teams that were missing "non NFL" draft players.

You keep presenting me with arguments made by other people - and talking to me like I'm some sort of fool, I might add. Not really necessary or worth responding to. I'm not one of your in the gutter buddies that you fight with about whether this is an LSU forum or not.

I've made my points pretty clearly and summed up my feelings and reasons for them on this matter.

re: The “greatest team ever”* only had 10 players drafted?
individually making exceptions for each team that had players or not is not really addressing a stat that I pointed out.

quote:

forgot one stat....



went 15-0 vs fully rostered teams:
it's kinda a big one.
additionally if LSU were to have this kind of asterisk season, you'd be one of the stat guys talking about all of the shortcomings of LSU's schedule and weak competition as noted here in this forum.

mind you, what i said in that last paragraph is not a fact.

but 15-0 vs fully rostered teams is a fact, which i was more than happy to give you. you are more than happy to tap dance all around that stat, as much as you like.

you are also not the slackjawed writer that early and cajun are.....you happen to be one of the smarter ones which is why i respect that you are ignoring that stat altogether.

Are you arguing with a brick wall or something? Who the hell are you talking to?

What facts? That this was a weird season that can't be compared to others? The point I've now made twice in this thread?

quote:

I've said multiple times that 2020 is a unique season not really comparable to others


quote:

2020 was a unique year and it's difficult to compare to others, IMHO. I hate it, because it robbed something from this group, but they made the best of it and dominated everything in front of them.



So again, who the hell are you arguing with about 15-0 vs 13-0 or comparing rosters or something?

Our 8 or 9 posts have been discussing the extent of COVID attrition on rosters in 2020.

Our 8 or 9 posts have had absolutely nothing to do with 2019 LSU or comparing 2020 Alabama to anyone else from any other season.

disagree

gaudy offensive numbers can be racked up on covid/furloughed teams to where the comparison is bunk.

walk between these rain drops all you want. but calling alabama 2020 goat is not possible.

Me : I don't think you can compare 2020 Alabama to any other season. It was unique and different.


You : SAY WHATEVER YOU WANT BUT CALLING ALABAMA 2020 GOAT IS NOT POSSIBLE

He's too dumb, he'll keep trying to use the broken one to keep digging. It's sad how attached he is to his one little season. I guess that's what happens when you go .500 the next year and have multiple agencies investigating your programs.
