"With all due respect to Vanderbilt and the lovely city of Nashville, that’s a move that any coach in their right mind would make. It was an obvious upgrade." Just how much "due respect" is that to Vanderbilt and the people of Nashville, Connor? All due respect to parents who name their kid Connor, but anyone in their right mind knows it's a dumb name. John is an obvious upgrade. (How's that feel?) Reminds me of the girl - you know the one - who starts the conversation with, "I LOVE her to death, BUT...(trashes her behind her back)." Man up and just say how you really feel O'Gara. We're all grown here, we can take it. Or better yet, if you can't say something nice - well, you know the rest. Your prejudice is showing....
Next SDS article... Pelini or Strong: Which former HC will again prove himself (again!) at DC?
Wonder how PG is going to take this? Would be hard not to feel overshadowed by Strong. Maybe this is part of Saban's plan - let Golding bow out on his own. Isn't this similar to how Pete was also hired?
I don't blame you for hoping that! Strong on Bama's sideline would be equally scary as him being on ours (or anyone's for that matter). Good luck with the replacement if that's what Bama fans want...
LSU not used to winning championships? What planet are you on??
Yeah, I know that BT. But, that's not what I said. And you know dam well what I'm referring to: head-to-head matchup for the Natty. You're no fun dude. AGAIN, IN THE CURRENT CFP ERA, THE CLEMSON TIGERS HAVE BEATEN THE ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE *TWICE* FOR THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP, WHILE ALABAMA HAS ONLY BEATEN CLEMSON **ONCE** FOR THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. REALITY. FACT. LIVE WITH IT. "I told you on the last article that I wasn’t the guy that got your mom pregnant on her shift at McDonald’s… I’m not sure why you’re so obsessed with me but I’m not your father…" BamaTime 2/17/2020. My mom's side of the family is from Tuscaloosa. You give Alabamans a bad name. Bear Bryant would take you out to the woodshed. So would Nick. Coach O - he wouldn't waste his time on you. This will be the last time I respond to you.
Well, can't wait to see him play at the college level. Hope it's a good game between y'all!
"We're in talks, but no decision yet. I'll let ya know ASAP. Please understand...." instead of "I'm not leaving." The odds are against LSU to repeat, but it's not unrealistic that they do. Because, college football.
Still can't get over "Clemsonitis" coming from a Bama fan. Does "now and then" indicate 2 times? Like, the 2 out of 3 times Clemson beat Bama for the Natty just recently?? If Clemson is blind, Bama must be deaf and dumb. That's just rich.
Any chance Bryce starts??
Pump the brakes on the Tua Tagovailoa hype? Dolphins reportedly not sold on former Alabama quarterback
Burrow and the LSU receivers put in an amazing amount of extra work between his junior and senior years, and that's what made the difference between them and other teams with outstanding talent at QB/receivers (like Bama). If you don't know about it, find the articles and read up - it's outlandish what they did. And Burrow's journey out of OSU is a great story as well. The guy was driven.
Pump the brakes on the Tua Tagovailoa hype? Dolphins reportedly not sold on former Alabama quarterback
Point taken. However, do you know about the work Burrow and his receivers put in during the off-season (and also overtime during the season) after Burrow's junior year? All at Brady's direction, at least as much that could be allowed (then they went at it on their own). Honestly it's not even believable. It's THE reason they did what they did. Tua had a great receiving corps as well, but I'm not aware that they put anywhere close to the same off-field time in as the LSU crew did. THAT'S what happened between Burrow's junior and senior years. Maybe you just don't know about it - really, go read about it, it's amazing what they did. Not trying to pick a fight, but calling it a "flash in the pan" is not giving them credit and bordering disrespectful after they EARNED it like they did.
And, maybe a few who are sure they will be ;)
I understand your argument RTR, but I'll have to check those stats before buying in. Gonna take some work to tease that out. Todd Harris' 2018 interception shows that Tua sometimes just puts it up, and counts on his receivers to outplay everyone -but not at DBU! Don't remember Burrow ever quite doing that (but I could be wrong? - show me). Both generational quarterbacks with different strengths. Might be having a slightly different conversation without the injury, but IMO not a different conclusion. Wonder what the draft will say? Could go either way, for lots of reasons.
.....hate to admit I believe in Nick, but I'm not.... well, stupid.
Coach O enjoyed The Perfect Storm, no denying that. Not quite sure *exactly* what made that happen last year? And I'm probably not being fair picking on Nick like I am. It will be interesting to see if he learned anything this year? Have to admit, Goat's posts had me cracking up (even if off-topic - but nice segue from Strong!). Fun to jump on that bandwagon. To be serious though, Nick's definitely had the talent, etc, to do something like LSU did last year. Especially recently with Tua and that receiving corps. Was it Cajun Magic?? Coach O's Special Sauce?? Is Burrow THAT good?? What gives?
It's just that, people act like Alabama and Nick Saban are the greatest things that have EVER happened to college football. Yes they're good - I actually like Alabama. But other teams are good too, and many of those teams have actually beaten Alabama (and Nicky) many times over the last several years. Including in the games that count. Tide lost 2 Sugar Bowls in a row 2014 & 2015 (not too mention 2009 - ouch!), and Clemson edges them in NCs during this current CFP era. To insinuate that Alabama dominates college football, like so many on here do, is simply not true. Or that they have more of a Tradition than the rest of - again, like is implied (or outright stated) by some SDS posters- is simply ridiculous! Don't believe me? Tailgate for ANY game at Death Valley in Baton Rouge on any Fall Saturday, then head to Bryant-Denny the next weekend. You'll see what I'm talking about.
Ok glad it's not just me noticing BT gets....upset. "I'm not listening to you, YOU CRAYzee!" Jack Black/Nacho Libre 2006
LSU also has multiple NCs. And, I've always believed in "Quality over Quantity." So I have to admit this is GOAT's argument, and I'll shut up about it after this. But Coach O achieved GOAT season pretty quickly. Nick has had the time and talent to pull it off for many years - but hasn't. Just sayin... HOT BOUDIN! COLD COUSCOUS!! C'MON TIGERS LET'S POOSH POOSH POOSH!!!
Oh sorry missed the compliment that last time as you were LYAO. Trolling and bashing others? Maybe go read your own posts! I simply express a valid point of view backed by facts, and you become unhinged. But I've seen you do it before so no surprise there. If hearing other points of view gets you that upset, maybe consider something else. Just sayin...
Bamatime y'all lost 2 games last year. No playoff. Relegated to playing Harbaugh postseason. Ranked what, 8? 8..... Coach O's your daddy for now. Fall in line, or change it this year. In Death Valley. Good luck!
“Congratulations (LSU) on possibly the best season in CFB.” BamaTime, 2/16/2020. “Congratulations (LSU) on being behind Bama in the series, number of championships, win pct and total wins.” BamaTime, 2/16/2020. “You know what that (past titles/wins) means for next season? Absolutely nothing….” BamaTime, 2/16/2020.
chirp chirp chirp......crickets
Nice post! Leave it to a fantasy football god to have all the scoop. My take is, deep down (actually, closer to the surface) Bama fans are worried. They should be - if they're smart. You're right about the O line reloading not rebuilding, my point was that Deculus is the only "full-time" starter returning from last year's unit (I wasn't counting Ingram, behind Magee - but your point is fair). They might not win the Moore Award this year, but I don't think anyone in BR is worried about the personnel. Agree about Brennan, no controversy there - O'Gara's just meeting his word quota and nice-trolling for comments. Coach O's not looking for a graduate transfer. I understand that it's just easy to criticize whoever follows Burrow, but it kills me when posters here dismiss Brennan - in January and February. Considering Bama's partial drop-off at receiver and LSU continuing DBU (Stevens #18; Stingley #7??), look for crow on the Death Valley menu in November.
I'd take Coach O over Nicole Satan anyday. Coach O can win a Natty, just like Nicky. Can Nicky put together what was likely the best season in the history of college football? Well, he’s had plenty of chances – and failed. O did it just 2 & 1/2 years in. But more importantly is how you treat people. Nick doesn’t even belong in the same conversation with Ed. While I’d pay good money to go to a crawfish boil and drink beer with Coach O and his fun-loving attitude, you couldn’t pay me to be in the same room with miserable Saban and his condescension for any amount of time. GEAUX!!!
Since 2000, LSU has 5 SEC Titles starting in 2001. Bama has 6, but only since 2009. LSU has 3 Nattys since 2003. Bama has 5 – again, only since 2009. Let that sink in for a minute…. Does Bama have the better overall record? Yes. Has it been “domination” over LSU like Bama Homers like to tell themselves on long, cold, dark lonely nights in 2020? NO – not even close, and quite laughable to even suggest. In fact, one way to look at it is that LSU, while not having as many titles as Bama this century, has actually been the better long-term performer. Valid argument. In other words, Bama’s only consistently been in the conversation since 2009; LSU, since 2001. So please save the “blind squirrel” aphorism Warren. Sometimes, I wonder if the Bama posters here have been alive any longer than the Saban era? GOAT is right – Bama will never duplicate what LSU just did. And I’ll definitely take “GOAT” in the midst of a close rivalry. Better hope LSU isn’t reloading like it looks like they are…….

There y'all go with "one-and-done" again. Doubt it. And if any one of you took the time to see what's REALLY going on at LSU, and not just talk homertalk, you'd know what I'm talking about.
