Reaaaaally delayed reply (sorry), but I was referring to the fact that LA funding is in jeopardy. LSU is likely looking at institutional equivalent of bankruptcy. Even though their accreditation might be ok, their departments (and therefore educational quality) will suffer.

I don't know about osu's Chem E program, but my brother went to UC and is working for marathon. Also, I've got to imagine that a Chem E from a good institution like osu would be better than a petrol degree from a place like lsu.

I agree; my sentiments were more directed towards a feeling that our players have been generally undervalued.

Comment 03 May 2015

The thing I hate is that they undervalue our guys (who dominated top draft picks), and when it turns out they're actually good and win starting positions, they're not getting paid as much as the first round busts.

But how about Braxton with decent receivers? It's not like there's a great disparity among the three qb's in terms of accuracy (all within mid 60s and again Braxton had bad WR). Not to mention the whole "cardale can throw it the furthest therefore he should start" thing doesn't matter unless we need to throw a Hail Mary from the 20. If Braxton is healthy (like actually healthy) he should be able to throw it 50 yards which should be enough in most cases.

Well if tylerbush12 can be trusted, it's his left ankle ("because his grandpa broke his ankle to"). But he's 12, so there's that.

Comment 28 Apr 2015

Him talking about years of eligibility and the fact that cardale/JT were fortunate to have good skill players really does say to me that this is an open race. I know he's already said that before, but this really solidifies to me that Braxton truly could get the job.

Comment 23 Apr 2015

I think the whole thing is ridiculous to assume that he thinks he doesn't have a chance at competing with JT and cardale. He was an incredible QB that carried the team when we had NO ONE. He could be phenomenal with a good OL/WR group, so it makes no sense for him to go and compete in a new system with new players and coaches against guys who already know it.

Comment 23 Apr 2015

I must say, although this is basically fabricated/exaggerated, it's really annoying how players/media say "oh, Ohio state already has too many at that position", but that doesn't happen at Alabama or other similar schools.

"know everything about football, we're SECCCC fans"

Is that a drawn out C or are they repeating the C? When they're repeating the C, it means they're broken and usually need to be hit on the head to stop it. The drawn out C is normal for them, but that can also be interrupted with a hit on the head if they get stuck.

Comment 22 Apr 2015

Exactly. This is the main reason I don't believe he would want to transfer. I think he would have a difficult time getting acclimated to a new school, team, coach with his personality. Set aside the fact that he can't fully practice probably till August, and he still would need to form relationships with new players and coaches. I just can't see him wanting to do that.

Thought this was gonna be a thread about the panda bear (technically jane) song... Oh well :/

Comment 28 Feb 2015

probably a very similar outcome, but a more consistent pass rush. according to ash, that was a very basic defensive play that led to the int.

Comment 09 Feb 2015

He always has the guys hitting their stride in February-March. For this sport, you can't ask for much more than that (and getting top recruiting classes to a "football school")

Comment 08 Feb 2015

seems like he'd be slamming on his brakes too often and then ramping over other cars. unsafe. friends don't let friends let braxton drive
