All the other major confrences have a thread, so the best conference in the country should have one too. For a little bit of information to get it started, I go to Ole Miss and we learned today that it appears DT Jerrell Powe, at one point the #1 recruit in his class, will be academically ineligible yet again (3rd year in a row).

Blake Mitchell...lol. He looks like a damn mole.

Anyway, LaMarcus Coker was reinstated onto the team, but won't make the trip to Cal. He wasn't gonna start anyway, but he could have been an asset with his breakaway speed on a number of touches between the 20s. At least he'll be back for the UF game.

I thought they had just said suspended indefinately. During the press conference, they said he had "fulfilled his obligations to the team, and was allowed back with the team". I also believe he is meeting with counselors on a regular basis. There was alot of speculation on what he did, but all that was officially released I believe was that it was "personal reasons". I'm pretty sure he had a death in the family recently, and wasn't in class at the start of the semester. There were also rumors of drug use, but just rumors.

With the lack of offense that V TECH brings LSU is a legit 12.5 point favorite. Is there any chance V TECH starts their freshman qb in this game?

How bad is V Techs offense though? If ECU dont throw that interception for a touchdown. ECU has a great chance of winning that game. As far as LSU I cant see them losing this game. Mississippi States defense played good. It just seemed like LSU scored on all of heir turnovers. I wouldnt say V Techs offense is as bad as Miss State because the qb had 6 ints, but V Tech has a really poor offense. I wouldnt be shocked if this line moved up to about 16 before kickoff.

VT's offense really isn't that bad. I'm sure this past game was filled with anxiety and emotion which led them to struggle a bit. I would imagine that now that they got this tribute behind them they are going to focus a lot more on football and calm down

I don't think Glennon is terrible. He might not be a superstar but he's efficient enough to succeed on the college level. I honestly don't think the Les Miles/Gary Crowton conservative playcalling will be able to move the ball on Tech's defense.

How can you not see that? Glennon misses wide open recievers so much, and he's not mobile at all. Mobile QB's are a better fit to VT's offense, and Glennon's just a sitting duck there behind that poor OL this year. Glennon has almost no arm strength, and it shows on his deep throws, they're very poor. Same with drew weather.. weather... weather..........

Virginia Tech is certainly overrated. Their defense is worthy, but they have lost 3 games in years when they've had good to great offenses with Randall and Marcus Vick. They should be top 20, but not top 10.

SEC-wise, LSU might be the best defense in the country, but Flynn is not gonna win a national title any time soon, and the rest of their offense is not that great save Doucet. They lost Davis, Russell, Bowe, and Landry all in the first round last year, I don't see them not losing less than 1 or 2 games at least. I think Arkansas might be a surprise team in the SEC this year and have a real shot at going back to the championship game where they will play Georgia, mark it down.

That was mostly a good play by the linebacker, rather than a bad throw from Glennon. Threw it straight at his chest? We must have seen two different plays.

And if you think that their freshman QB gives them a better chance to win than Glennon does, you're on drugs. Tyrod Taylor has a great chance of being overwhelmed by that defense, by that thundering stadium, and under all the pressure. If LSU if favored by 2 TD's with Glennon as QB, then they should be favored by 3+ with Taylor as QB.

Matt Mauck won a national title, why can't Flynn? LSU has weapons on offense (Brandon LaFell is a really good #2 receiver and there are 4 solid tailbacks they cycle in and out). They have a good enough defense to carry them all season and the offense will eventually gel. I don't think it'll be a juggernaut, but they're good enough on defense to score 17-21 points a game and win.

I can definitely see them dropping a game (at the most. Auburn or Alabama worry me the most right now) but I think they're easily the best team in the SEC right now.

Although we may very well be conservative, you really have no substance to back that conclusion.

We played vanilla last week, as Keiland Williams said we used maybe half the offense.

Its really not much of a stretch, to be honest. Russell was a hell of a special talent, but he was really..dumb. He made bonehead play after bonehead play and really killed a few games for LSU.

His stats look great, but he put up huge numbers on weak teams.

Flynn is probably better suited for the college game than Russell, especially with the system hes in right now.

I'll break it down.

DE-Kirston Pittman-Senior, Gone.
DT-Dorsey-Senior, gone.
DT-Marlon Favorite-Junior
DE-Tyson Jackson-Junior, could declare for the draft
LB-Darry Beckwith-Junior
LB-Ali Highsmith-Senior, gone.
LB-Luke Sanders-Senior, Gone

"You do understand that the entire line is back, sans Dorsey. The LBs are still gonna be there minus Highsmith. The same line with a ton of depth and freshman that could start this year. "

The most dominant defensive player in college football, a guy whose passrushing and disruption are the axis around which the rest of your defense turns, is going to be gone. And your best linebacker. I mean, LSU certainly has a lot of talent stockpiled, the defense will probably be pretty good, but to posit that it will even be in the same league as this year's version is fairly homeristic. Saying the defense will be back "sans Dorsey and Highsmith", with the undertone of oh well its only two players, is like saying the Colts offense will be back... minus Manning and Harrison (hypothetical). Yeah, players are returning, just not the important ones.

saintsfan912
11-01-2007, 06:52 PM
Actually Highsmith is NOT our best LB. Darry Beckwith is the 2nd best player on that defense, he just gets no recognition. I don't see Jackson declaring with this semi-down year he is having. He will pull a Dorsey and come back for his senior season. Luke Sanders is nothing to replace, come on in Cutrera or whoever is next. The corners won't be that hard to replace. I mean, I love Chevis and Zenon but they haven't been playing the best ball the past few games. Eugene will prove why he was the best DB coming out of highschool. ****, even Chad Jones could probably play corner if we needed him to.

And where did I say this defense would be better? I'm just stating that there is TONS of great depth on the defense and its possible to be in the same league. NOWHERE did I say they would be better than this year.

Like just about every SEC team this year we have looked great some games and terrible at other times. Our offense is getting better every game and that is to be expected with 3 freshman OL, freshman HB and sophmore QB. The key to offense is Moreno who has over 1,000 yards while splitting carries with Thomas Brown until the last 2 games. The UF game showed how good Stafford can be with a little help from the skill players. Stafford hasn't played perfect, but he is improving every game and thats all you can ask for with a young QB. His has thrown 13 TD and 5 Int. so thats a big step in the right direction. Our defense and WR still scare me though.

themaninblack
11-02-2007, 02:12 PM

The WR's have improved catching the ball from last year. I still don't like the "WR by committe" that we are doing and Sean Bailey isn't at 100%. The biggest thing is that they get no separtion from DB. Every time Stafford makes a pass he has to be perfect since a CB is right behind the WR.
