    M.Hill is gone. Hawkins is LSU. Tony Bell is gone. Jones is LSU.

    For next year Nate Livings to right tackle. Melvin Oliver will probably take Hill's spot. No timetable on QB.

    Video shown- Pat White impressive. So is Hawkins and Xavier Carter. Carter looks a little raw to me. Ryan Miller looks great Tyson Jackson suprisingly good. Highsmith and Kuale are very good at linebacker. Big Herm will be dominant after conditioned a couple of years.

    No other schedule changes but

    Saban did discuss Virginia Tech and Marshall. Said they mainly backed off for tv money. Saban also said ESPN wanted LSU to play a Thursday night game(not sure against who). He told them no. ESPN said you will lose out on an ESPN game. Saban told them no we want because y'all will put us on tv no matter when we play. Who's your daddy ESPN.

    TIGERSKIN, what does no timetable on QB means? Does that mean that it is an open competition between the three but Randall will be given the most close look? Does he mean that a QB will be declared when it is obvious who is the best for the season rather it is after spring, before game one, or before the GA game?

    I would like us to play the Troy State game on Thursday. We are coming off a bye, so we would still have plenty of time to prepare and it is the only way that it would be televised.

    Marcus Randall will have

    a slight lead but the other two will be given the opportunity to win the job. Whoever can best move the football team will be the QB. This thing will play itself out. There will be no timetable such as before the end of spring practice, one month before the season, etc. The performance of the players will determine who and when the starter is named. I know it sounds vague but that is the point. It will be a judgement decision and Saban will decide when he and only he is ready to name a starter. And if that starter does not move the team he will sit.

    A thursday night game would be terrible. First of all, attendance may hit an all-time low (especially if its on tv and vs. Troy St.) Secondly, there's class/work on Thursdays. Lastly, there's work/class on Friday. I could go on, but hopefully no one else will mention a Thursday night game EVER AGAIN.

    THURSDAY NIGHT GAMES ARE RESERVED FOR AUBURN - IS IT JUST ME, OR DO THEY PLAY A THURSDAY NIGHT GAME EVERY YEAR? I GUESS THE PARKING WITH CLASSES AND A WEEK DAY ISN'T A PROBLEM SINCE THE ENTIRE PLACE IS A DAMNED COW PASTURE.
