    At this point I think just about everyone knows how everybody else feels about O. I think it’s time to be fans and give him and especially the team our support and take a positive outlook. I don’t mean wear blinders if he screws up but stop looking for gloom and doom. Be prepared to criticize.....in the true meaning of the word as the season progresses.
    Wear your purple and gold glasses and cheer for the best rather than dreading the worst, until and unless it happens. He’ll taint will keep the rag on as much as necessary.
    The Miami game is perhaps the most critical game in O’s tenure here. A win against a media darling and likely a strong team could start the Tigers off on a memorable season. Let’s look forward to it with hope in our eyes.

    I'm waiting to see just what Burrow brings to the table. Everybody knows that Narcisse won't go the starter but with his skills I hope that E has a package to utilize his skills in certain situations much like Tebow was used in his freshman season.

    McMillan has the longest tenure in Baton Rouge but I don't think he would beat out Brenner if it were a head to head competition between the two of them.
    Brennan showed us some good things last season but he made mistakes too. He has the most upside of the 3 and could develop into a premier SEC WB in the future but he is not nearly there yet.

    So it's up to Joe if we are to get top notch QB play and leaders from the position. From everything I have read, and heard from the few Buckeye fsns I know he is the real deal. He just needs to get on the field and lead us to the promised land.

    But his last name is Burrow, not Montana.
    September 2nd can't get here soon enough.

    The loss of Ed Ingram hurts. What looked like a dominant O line is now in a bit of turmoil. No matter how good Burrow may turn out to be he will still need protection. I think the runner game will be better than most are saying but they still need the OL to open the holes. Clyde Edwards-Helaire could turn out to be special and I hope Curry can still be called Beast Mode once the real games start.

    Now that Kristian Fulton has lost his appeal who if anybody can step up to play corner opped Greedy Williams? I don't think the lpss of Taylor will have much effect on linebacker play other than the lack of quality depth.

    Had anybody see any reports from today's scrimmage? @bhelmLSU

    Idk why most are chalking up the war chicken game as a loss...iirc, we beat them last year with what I think wasn't as talented a team as this year's team... Didn't they also lose their best running back...

    Auburn was strictly a home-field advantage team last year. They were a perfect 7-0 at home, beating both Alabama and Georgia.

    It could be the same this year because I think they recruited fairly well.

    Sorry I can’t make any forecasts yet. I’ve only installed 35% of my predicting ability.

    This year when they try to do their Tom Petty salute, I say Tiger band starts playing Neck- with lyrics of course.
