Discussion in 'LSU RECRUITING' started by Tiger in NC, Jun 1, 2012.
Once again this staff has been doing a great job this year. Very good pickup.
I think all of us fans were quite shaken with how LSU played in the NCG against Alabama. It was a disaster, sure woke-up some some old questions and I really think that LSU was on a slide after that game with recruiting and overall fan & even players morale. Good news is, even though no coach may ever admit it, a lot of lessons may have been learned from that game.
CLM never said that promoting two assistants to be co-defensive coordinators was a mistake, but that "mistake" was corrected and not to take anything away from CLM, but it was a bit of good luck that an experienced defensive coordinator was tossed out at Tennessee just when we needed one. However, I don't want to even think about why we kept one "not to be mentioned offensive coordinator" as long as we did.
Was it a mistake in 2011 not to play Mettenberger more to have him available for the NCG, we'll never know, but surely the lessons learned with having a young quarterback thrown into the fray too soon have been learned from a past season and while LSU does play a lot of younger players which I think is great, there is some balance with rewarding seniors which has its merits as well.
My point is that the LSU staff sure does learn and while there may be some big bumps in the road from time to time, no fan, especially ones who have been around for a while like me, can not be anything but thrilled with the ride starting with Saban and continuing with CLM.
Ya remember the good old days when one of the biggest issues of the anti Miles crowd was..."He only plays the seniors. He won't play the more talented underclassmen."
Times have sure changed.
Well said. I still have vivid flashbacks to Curly ball.
One of my main expectations for a head coach is that he doesn't make the same mistake twice. And except for possibly being to too stubborn or slow to fix a mistake every now and then, Miles sure seems to learn and adapt quickly.
If recruiting keeps going this well, the future is looking bright.
Awesome, if the 2012 season doesn't go well, 2013 is sure looking sweet
Yes with the 85 limit, Les played 82 last year......
Herron is doing well at The Opening up in Oregon. Here is a clip of him blowing by 4 start OL Nico Falah. http://espn.go.com/ncaa/lsu/index
He goes 1:44 into the clip. Looks fast.
IMO, Herron was the best DE I saw on the clips...Vanderdoes the best DT....and Raulerson a Texas commit the best OL. Christian Lacoutre that LSU was in on as a DL looked OK but he got buried by the first OL (perhaps a tad of holding but who wasn't) and he looked better on the 2nd and 3rd goes at it. However, the OL he was going against at that point was Skyler Phillips who has a grand total of 0 offers. I guess since the guy was fairly close by (Eugene), they probably invited a few locals to make sure they had enough guys.
