    We've had some talent, I hope he does more with it than the last guy.

    Exactly. We've had talent and good production through the years, but it always seems harder than it needs to be w/the o-line and running game. Hopefully, better technique, cohesion, etc, and we will perform as expected or above and the talent will reach its potential at LSU, rather than later in the NFL.

    HalloweenRun I'll try to be nicer, if you try to be smarter!

    I played football in junior high and high school. Started to try out at Navy, but chickened out. Big regret and black mark on life.

    Anyway, I hated playing in rain and mud. People always say "football weather." Not. I don't know anyone that liked playing in the cold rain. It sucked. Maybe manly, but not illustrative of what either team could do.

    I loved playing slop ball but hated what it did to the field.

    It's a mindset. I knew plenty of guys who hated the wet and cold, but then there were those of us who ran out with no sleeves, no extra gear during the cold. We refused to wear raingear on the sidelines. Perhaps it just makes you feel tough, trying to look tough. So much of the game of football is more mental than physical. The idea that the elements have no effect on you while you physically dominate the man in front of you as he shivers from the cold before sulking his way back to the huddle for the opportunity to come right back and get another taste of what he just received. is not a new one. It's probably a point of pride more than anything.

    I always loved playing in a downpour or bitter cold. I think most lineman feel like the nastier you get the more fun you have. A nasty wet tore up field is a great equalizer and at LSU speed is key to our defense success and that makes me love sunshine and 60 great pic though!
