Lane Kiffin has a much better job right now. Why would he even pick up the phone?
Tennessee won't win a conference game for at least 2 years. Possibly 3. No one should want this job, because it is a career killer.
Best facilities and fan base...You mean mediocre (by sec standards) facilities, and a delusional dimwitted fanbase that thinks that they are just a few breaks away from glory once again. Funny how all of these advantages (that you think you have) haven't resulted in anything close to a great season well over a decade now.
Get back in the discussion? Discussion for WHAT? You are just one of those delusional dreamers that thinks a switch can be flipped, and UT will start magically recruiting in states that have infinitely better football programs. The state of Tennessee will never have enough prospects to elevate this program anywhere near the top. You people have been claiming you're "back" for more than a decade now, and you are right back in the abyss, staring at a 1-7 or 0-8 in the SEC record next year.
I wonder how many more Alabama could have scored on LSU about 6 weeks ago. That is the real question. No one I know was really satisfied with hanging only 55 on them. We all wanted 70+.
So, if you objectively look at LSU's last 9 seasons, are you saying that 2019 doesn't definitively stand out as the aberration, among all those 3-5 loss seasons? I'm not talking about ancient history in 2003 or 2007, so no need to go back that far.
LOL, at least he didn't hold people at gunpoint and get cut one year after being the Giants' first round pick.
Former LSU assistant reportedly ‘the favorite’ to be Urban Meyer’s offensive coordinator in Jacksonville
Linehan was run out of Dallas for good reason. Meyer should have noticed that.
Imagine that: Some LSU honk, trying to make his fanbase feel better after 55-17 and a misery-inducing 5-5 season, drums up this bit of propaganda. Here's the bottom line: It is 2021 and Alabama is champion. Alabama will be right back in the mix for the championship next year, while LSU continues to wait for the NCAA hammer to drop, and more quitters to "opt out" and others to jump into the transfer portal to escape a program in decline. LSU fans want to believe that 2019 was the "normal" but it is the only season since 2012 that didn't involve at least 3 losses. Aberration. Flash in the pan.
2001 Miami, playing by today's rules, wouldn't come close to scoring enough to beat either of these teams. Elite offense beats elite defense, and 2001 Miami's defense wasn't best in college football history.
Stingley was embarrassed both years by Devonta Smith. Pretending that Alabama wouldn't have a massive coaching advantage in this game is wishful thinking. As is pretending that LSU's OL (which featured no 1st round picks) could hold a candle to Alabama's 2020 OL. The only advantage LSU would have is Joe Burrow's mobility. They beat the weakest Alabama team in 5 years by 5 points. They wouldn't come within 14 of the best Saban team.
Barton evidently forgot everything he knew about college football, if he really believes in the potential of Vanderbilt football, because there is none in the SEC.
Will these people ever learn with Oklahoma? They are the same team each and every year. I cannot understand why everyone is so bullish on a team that loses to Kansas State every year.
I cannot imagine anyone wanting to coach a bad team in the city of Philadelphia. Their fans are worse than Euro soccer hooligans.
Alabama won't open the real poll behind Clemson. Any returning champion (that isn't a guaranteed disaster, like 2020 LSU and 2011 Auburn) is going to be #1 by default.
You may not call Evan Neal a superstar now, but he is probably a top 5 pick in the draft next season. He missed the Arkansas game with COVID.
Wish Florida hadn't mailed in their bowl game. The Florida team that Alabama beat in the SECCG was far more dangerous than either playoff opponent, and would have beaten them both.
I have seen a picture of Lane Kiffin with a bunch of Alabama players at the game last night, but Tua wasn't in the shot.
Oh, Imagine this, coming from a Barner. Never mind that 2019 LSU only beat your team by 10, and Alabama won by 29, and could have won by at least two TD's more, if they'd kept foot on gas entire game, the way Orgeron did last year. Of course it came back to bite him in the a$$ this season, when none of his backups had any playing experience, and were one of the worst defenses in SEC history.
Shouldn't you be watching the transfer portal, to make sure none of your other 5 stars are jumping that sinking ship?
Precisely. They won't be in the conversation next year either.
Rapid Reaction: Perfection! Alabama dominates Ohio State to win 18th national championship, 6th under Saban
Why don't you go watch your game against Oklahoma on Youtube? Completely embarrassed the SEC. Your players (outside of Pitts) obviously aren't smart enough to know that non-first rounders shouldn't opt out of bowl games.
Second thought, maybe we could play the game in Tiger Stadium, where Alabama has outscored LSU 84-17 in the last two meetings. It wouldn't matter anyhow, because all of the quitters on LSU would "opt out" before the contest anyhow. What is it like to be a fan of a team that no one really wants to play for?
Rapist U. has no chance of winning the SEC next year. Just try to do better than .500. Baby Steps. 55-17, loser.
Joe Burrow was on the 2018 Loserana State team. You know, the one that didn't score against Alabama. What's your point? 55-17, loser.
2019 LSU didn't come close to the awards that 2020 Alabama won, and that includes the Thorpe award that they gave to Grant Delpit, who was in fact a liability on defense. Keep sniveling all you want, but your 2019 team is now FORGOTTEN.
What a load of crap, but unsurprising considering it comes from the dunce that told everyone that Clemson was winning the national championship. Alabama would blast that 2019 LSU team. Your OL is a joke (notice, no first rounders, and Lloyd Cushenberry is the worst center in the NFL). No one cares about 2019 any more. The dust is going to get really thick on that trophy, because Rapist U. isn't coming near another one anytime soon.
Najee Harris has 27 total touchdowns this season. Trey Sermon has 4.
After Alabama’s latest commitment from Texas, Aggies defender calls out recruits for leaving Lone Star State
Kids want to play for champions, not those that always under-achieve and lose games to Big 12 dregs every season.
What I'll remember this season most for: Mac Jones making sure that I didn't spend the whole season sulking over the absence of Tua Tagovailoa. I simply cannot believe how well Jones has played this season. IMO he was better this year than Tua was in 2018 or 2019.
