    What if Davey had played all of 2000 in addition to 2001? Has anyone else ever thought about how things might be a little different? I read in another post on here about Davey being pretty awful against Auburn in 99 (I was there.....terrible), and then shining when he had the chance in 2000, a la UT and GT. Our offense was horriffic in the games against UAB and Arkansas, two games that we lost. Not only was the offense terrible and couldnt score points, Booty was giving points away. Our defense was actually pretty good and kept us close. Ive thought that if Davey had been in those two games, we would have won them. 9-2 sure sounds better than 7-4. I know "what if's" are useless, but anybody else feel that way?

    But it did not happen

    Maybe Burt Jones has eligibility and he can come play QB. I got one If Terry Bradshaw has a son maybe in 2015 he can come and play at LSU that is if we can get him out of TECH country. Lots of things happen in sports you can not control and injuries are on of them Davey was hurt most of the 2000 season and Booty as a Starter was I believe 6 and 2( not sure on that) but Josh had a pretty good 2000. If you knew the whole story at the peach bowl Josh might have played the whole game but things did not work out in the first half.

    PS I am not a Josh Booty Fan either

    Personally I think Josh Booty held our program back and is mostly responsible for the decline.

    Think about it. Georgia, Alabama, UAB, Arkansas. The list goes on with games that HE made a mistake. Yes the team should have not put Josh in that situation but he was and he blew it.

    Plus I heard the team would not play for him. I am not saying he was a bad guy. But people cannot relate to him. But RO. He was a working class man. He would never go down without a fight, he was down to earth, etc etc.
    You saw how the same team of men were completely different depending on which guy was under center...

    Thanks, Deaf. I know it didnt happen. In fact, I said myself that "what if's" are useless, but I was bored and posted. Im not really sure what you are saying about the Peach Bowl, but thanks anyway for that nugget of knowledge.

    Yes, you are right, Booty was 6-2 as a starter in 2000, but remember, Davey only started against Auburn (hurt after throwing only one pass...Booty comes in to lose), Tennessee (win), and Florida (reinjured in 1st half, Booty comes in to lose). I certainly dont blame Booty for the Florida loss, Davey would have lost that one, too.

    Here are a few stats for you.

    Booty was 145 for 290 for 2121 yards, 17 TDs, and 15 INTs with a rating of 120.44.

    Davey was 38 for 59 for 577 yards, 7 TDs, 1 INT with a rating of 182.32.

    I could whip out 1999 stats, too, but I wont compare Saban to DiNardo.

    I'm just glad everything worked out the way it did for both years. I couldn't have written a better script. For Booty, the Georgia game was just one of those things that happens in football, but the Bama game was inexcusable. Although people will probably forget his 2000 season (because of comparisons to Ro's 2001), he did alright after UAB. I'm just glad he's gone and I'm hoping the Booty with three names (Billy Bob Booty?) still in HS goes somewhere else. We don't need another soap opera like that.

    I dont think John David Booty will even visit LSU. His parents "are mad" at LSU because and I quote "Treated their boys very poorly"

    Although the Booty's are amazing talents. The baggage and headaches of them are not worth it. Josh and his stuff. Abram and the pacifier he needed and their parents saying LSU fans are to hard on their little babies.

    Have fun in the Big 12...

    Daddy Booty

    Daddy Booty has already said that John David Booty will not play at LSU. But you know what, how many great talents from Evangel have actually become big time 1 A players. The only one that might be big time is Steve Lee the DT at Texas and he has not played fulltime yet he is splitting time with another. He will be a Jr next yr or a Red Shirt Soph. I know Bock Berlin... But, you know what he still has not become the Starter anywhere yet either.

    So let the Bootys be the Royal Family of Shreveport We all know that on a Scale of 1 thru 10 the Bootys Start out at # 4 with QBs out of Shreveport Behind Bradshaw Fergusen Bradshaws Brother who started in Houston for the Oilers a couple of Games and actually the best of all was LSU football freshman that Died in Vietnam Trey Prather. I think the problem these days is the media gives these High School kids more credit than they deserve. Daddy Booty and his Ego might have something to do with the Booty brothers Problem.

    By the way John David is going to be a UCLA Bruin mark it.

    You know, I wouldnt be at all surprised if Berlin doesnt even get the starting job at Miami. I also want to add that I have met Josh Booty on a few occasions and he is a pretty nice guy. I dont hold anything against him as a person, I just know Davey is a better QB. Although Josh did have a string of about 5 good games in a row.

    Hey TigerStagg,
    I didn't realize that you're last second field goal to defeat Abram and win the Baton Rouge National Championship of EA College Football had such an impact on Abram's confidence. First he gets beat out as the possession receiver by Jack Hunt shortly after and now this. You should have let him win.
