re: Coach O comments - agree or disagree - OldPete
[quote][quote]Curious...what were Orgeron's issues with Canada? Looks like he's given the keys of the offense to Brady and left him alone but didn't do the same for Canada. Read an article on Canada a month or so ago and some former LSU offensive players praised his offensive mind...just wondering w...

[quote]I’ll never see a World Series again. Never.[/quote] Well at least we got one...even though we should've had 3 or 4. Just happy that my Dad got to see 'em win a World Series before he died; that man was the biggest Atlanta fan in the world and that may have been the happiest I ever saw him.....

re: Hypothetical Playoff Scenario - OldPete
In that scenario, Clemson, Bama, and Wisconsin would definitely be in... The fourth spot would come down to Oregon and UGA...while UGA would have the better resume, wouldn't surprise me to see the committee go with a 1-loss conference champion Oregon. The other two times that 1-loss non-conferen...

re: Christian Harris is our most gifted ILB - OldPete
Thought the ILBs looked better as well as the defense as a whole... Didn't we have 5 true freshmen starting on defense Saturday? Dale, Eboigbe, Lee, Harris, and Battle...has that ever happened before at Bama?...

re: The quality of both pro and college football is complete garbage - OldPete
[quote]It isn’t the same game now that we all once loved.[/quote] Pretty much agree there as the game is much different today; the rules have swung way in favor of the offense as most fans tend to love that and it drives up TV ratings. I barely watch the NFL at all though, much of it to do with al...

re: Hypothetically speaking, pick your poison Tide fans. - OldPete
With the way the rules are favoring the offense nowadays, I think the days of dominant defenses are on the wane. When traditionally top defenses like LSU and Alabama are giving up huge passing numbers and lots of points, you know the worm has turned. Don't see this changing unless they make some c...

re: Saban's comments on the defense post-South Carolina - OldPete
[quote]Then let's do them a favor, and get them off the field?[/quote] Fine. Who do you suggest we replace them with? [quote]McClain, Hightower, DePriest, Nico Johnson Denzel Deval and a host of other LBers either started or played a ton of football for us as freshmen. [/quote] And how many ot...

re: Saban's comments on the defense post-South Carolina - OldPete
[quote]The problem with the excuse that our young LB's are the issue is that he also called a shitty game vs Clemson. If it was just this year I could understand the youth being an issue. If he had called a good game last season, I would easily be defending the guy. [/quote] When exactly did he ...

[quote]Golding just has not got this thing figured out. [/quote] Both first string MLBs are out for the season; McMillon, whom Golding had praised for his high football IQ and for getting players in the right position, looked like he'd be calling the plays. Then Moses, the best athlete and other M...

re: Yahoo - Does Alabama have a legitimate gripe about early kickoff times? - OldPete
[quote]That's actually not true, there just wasnt a twitter or a tigerdroppings back then to discuss.[/quote] Well, I'll take your word for it, but with all the SEC fans at my workplace back then, it was rarely discussed. Even when Tennessee was whuppin' us, none of the Bama fans I knew wanted to ...

[quote]Playing at night is tradition for us though.[/quote] Have no problem with LSU playing at night; before the SEC Network, we played several games at night in September as well. [quote]I'd think Alabama, who subject the entire league to a disjointed and unbalanced scheduling format just so t...

re: Yahoo - Does Alabama have a legitimate gripe about early kickoff times? - OldPete
[quote]Yeah but against cupcakes. How many people are watching those games besides Bama fans who identify with their team as though they play on the team (which is almost all of them)?[/quote] LSU just played a cupcake (Northwestern State) at home at night on the SEC Network. Do you seriously think...

re: Most of the problems with Bama’s schedule - OldPete
[quote]Alabama? Not so much. The regular season NC schedule is abysmal typically year in and year out.[/quote] The last two years? I agree. Typical year in, year out? Not even close. Since Saban's been there, prior to the last season, we've played traditionally good P5 OOC opponents (FSU x2, Clem...

re: Why is everyone melting over the defense? - OldPete
Thought Raekwon Davis and Xavier McKinney played well...Anfernee Jennings had the strip sack but didn’t really hear his name other than that and we didn’t generate much pass rush other than that either. Got killed on slants and crossing patterns and we didn’t set the edge well. Jump balls continue...
