I would not been surprised if Pelini moves Jacoby to an OLB/S hybrid. This would give him some flexibility in his 4-3 for better pass coverage. The DL will be the pride of the team next year. everything I am seeing is saying they are expected to be one of the best groups in the SEC....Defense will be fine. As far as offense, the OL might take a step back, but every other position should on par with last year (except Burrow. No one will ever replicate that season, but that don't have to)
Weren't you the same guy guaranteeing an Alabama win last season? All of these guys talking about how LSU will be next year were the same ones saying the same nonsense before this last season...like I said to the UGA guy DoubleOseven...pure hope and speculation.
What exactly are you using to base your "projection" on? Looks like pure hope and speculation to me. I bet that he passes for over 65% and I highly doubt he throws double-digit INTs. the LSU offense is a high percentage pass offense.. there are always check-downs and dump-offs when the QB is in trouble.
yeah, he isn't Burrow. You are correct...but what is he? As far as heart, leadership, fearlessness, and completive edge...we don't know. What we do know is that he is taller (they are listed the same, but seeing them side-by-side, Brennan is taller), faster and has a better arm than Burrow. The rest, we will have to wait and see.
Yes. Linehan came in to "tweak' the offense and "teach something new" (O's words). he will most certainly be the x's and o's guy with Brennan's development. Steve E is a really good coach. I've said it for a long time. he is just not known to have the most ingenuity. he does know how to develop skill though...and the players love him.
Venables is an anomaly. Either he doesn't want a HC job or they have some serious dirt on him. I guess that it's possibily tgat at 52, Bo just wants to make 20-25M over the next 8-10 years and call it quits.We shall see.
I had a comment with the word"D-A-M-N-I-T" in it and it is still waiting for a moderator....6 hours later.
OHIO is not LSU...it may look as if Pelini didn't give Nebraska what they wanted, but his worst season there was 9-4. they have only sniffed a winning record once since he left. I would imagine they would be very happy to have him winning there again. Bo is coming to LSU with the hopes of restoring his name and getting another Power 5 HC position. If LSU's defense is good, he will not be there longer than 3-4 years.
is there a such thing as a permanent DC for a school like LSU? I think 3-4 years is a good run. Either they are winning and he will become a HC or they are not and he will get canned.
No, the DC will need to be a recruiter. That is certain. O can't be everywhere.
if they get all 3 of the Dolphins 1st-rounders, they could get a quality QB and 2 other skill players. that would be a huge addition. It would be hard to pass a deal like that up.
I hope not.
Is coach O talking to him? We do not know. Coach o hasn't confirmed anything. these are all rumors. Also, even if he is talking to him, it could be just to make the boosters happy. Unfortunately, the head coaching position is a very political one. you have to make the guys with the money think you are listening to them. Honestly, none of us know anything. I just really, really, hope that they don't hire this jackass. IMO, it would be a very bad fit.
You are assuming that LSU is going to hire this guys. Don't get ahead of yourself. this is a rumor that is likely be spread by Pelini himself. I'm sure there are some boosters who still like him and he is trying to get pressure from within to force O's hand.
I bet all Bama fans like the idea.
I'm not sure what there is to like about it.
I would be really, really surprised if he gets the job. We will see, though.
Do you remember the Pelini days? Raymond did his recruiting for him as an intern in 2006 and an assistant in 2007. Also, his temperament is so drastically different from Aranda's, the defense would be in shock. I just don't think he fits the culture...unless of course, he has drastically changed his personality.
I was thinking the same thing..."I will continue to drive your already mediocre program in the ground if you don't hire my brother."
I could see O punching him out on the sidelines when Polini yells at him for something.
I'm pretty sure that Pelini's agent is the "source" for this article. his last contract with YSU was just over 200k. I'm pretty sure that he would love to get back to a DC position with a major program. As a fan who watched Pelini when he was at LSU previously, I do not like the idea. he has a reputation for being a hot-head who doesn't like to recruit. maybe, since getting run out of Nebraska, he has decided to change his was. I'm just know sure tat5 he is a good fit for the culture of the program. We have to trust O, though. He seems to know what he's doing.
So, we can most assuredly say that Saban is a Top 5 coach. would you say that the Tide has "skipped a beat" this year? I would say so, for sure. that doesn't mean that he isn't still a great coach, but that he had some attrition that affected the team. An 11-2 record is still really good and if LSU goes 11-2 next year, it would not mean that O isn't a great coach.
And there is still roster and staff continuity. There will always be some continuity and some attrition. That is the way CFB is.
So, by your logic Alabama is the middle of the pack in the SEC West, correct? Is this really difficult? Also, your are using you're prospective record to assess their ranking in the SEC. that's pretty ridiculous. why should anyone care what you go an record with? You're original statement was that they were middle of the pack prior to Brady and that is clearly an inaccurate statement. If you can't even properly assess previous seasons, you probably shouldn't make a habit of projecting future ones. take your "middle of the pack" Tide team and go somewhere else with that nonsense.
To be fair, though...no team has ever been as good as the 2019 LSU team....ever! So, yeah, they won't be as good. I don't see more than 2 losses though. they still have a lot of talent on the team.
2 consecutive top-10 seasons is considered "duplication of success", I would say.
The vast majority of the talent they lost was on the defensive side of the ball. the same people who are saying "one and done" are the say guys who said "LSU's defense is trash". Well, if they had a trash defense what does it matter of they lost 6 underclassman on defense. clearly offense wins championships now, right? They will not be as good in 2020 as they were in 2019, but NOT team Ever has been that good, so.... LSU will still have an elite offense. They still have the best receiver in football and several really good WR's with him. They still have 3 RBs who would start for almost every team in the country. They still have an elite 11 QB who has studied under JB for 2 years. They have the highest rated TE ever coming in. They still have a top-5 Db who will be a So next year. They still have a great D-line that will have more experience and will be stronger than ever. really, the only two areas that are a concern with this year's losses are the O-line (but they do have some experience coming back) and the LBs (that is an uncertainty for sure, but they have some talent on the squad that could fill the gaps there...see Jacoby Stevens) Will they go 15-0 and win another Naty next year? probably not. Will they be a strong team and compete in the SEC? Most assuredly!
Middle of the pack? What game are you watching? certainly not CFB.
he actually didn't have a sideline pass. last I heard was that LSU was investigating how he got on the field after the game. Of course, the program could just be saving face. Imagine though, you are a security guard making $10-$15 an hour and OBY hand you a wad of cash le look the other way for a second while he walks past.
LSU was awarded, but did not claim the title in in 1908, 1935, 1936, 1962. and 2011 for sure. They claimed the title in 1958, 2003, 2007, and 2019. I'm not sure about the 1959 and 1967 titles, though. Either way, if LSU were to claim everything that they could, their program would be just as historically dominant as Alabama's.
