no, YOU'RE off topic
T-Bob must feel like a kid whose dad got thrown out of a little league game for arguing with the umpire, except this was the National Championship game and Hebert kind of has a point. I thought Miles showed great restraint given the circumstances.
Read an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal over the weekend (link). The age old story about how a Defense spent the summer getting to optimal weight / power / speed, and wound up loosing the former, and becoming more effective. In this case LSU in preparation for Oregon.
So we had Barwis, who seemed to be on the path of tear out the bad weight and build them up , and stories of our linemen adding weight each season. And then we had all the complaints about undersized line, compounded by a 3-3-5 front. Throw in Wisconsin's loss to TCU, and how our guys have been consuming salmon like no one's business, and ... worry beads:
1) Will we wind up too heavy?
2) Do we have to be too heavy to win the Big Ten, positioning us poorly in subsequent bowl games against speedier opponents?
According to the Baton Rouge newspaper, The Advocate, police were at Jefferson's home this afternoon looking for evidence from the LSU football player fight last week. This keeps sounding more serious by the day.
Also, a video which is purportedly from the fight has been posted on the Baton Rouge sport talk station's website. Not much of anything to decipher though:
Didn't see this posted yet so here it is.
With this incident happening so close to the season, it will almost certainly have an effect on the Tiger's game verses Oregon. Especially since it involves multiple starters, including Jordan Jefferson.
Will Miles do the right things and suspend all these kids or will he continue his reputation as a less than reputable head coach?
Here's the link:
I realize everyone is excited about Greg Mattison, and I certainly understand that. But, there are other important college football issues to discuss. For example, Les Miles' dye job:
He's currently front-and-center here, too:
This was a revelation to me; I can't recall ever seeing him without "the hat."
I don't think the Michigan wine 'n cheese crowd (Mary Sue excepted) would be comfortable with that.
Whether or not it's my naivete, or sense of pride that no Michigan Man would turn down the opportunity to return, I still do not believe reports that DB offered Miles the job. Even though they are former teammates and Miles is a higher-profile Michigan Man name, I think with all the smoke around Les about potential minor violations and other general shenanigans would have kept him from doing so:
In any event, I think we're going to be better off, but just curious to hear what others think of these reports?
