    IMO, losing a heartbreaker like this builds more character than a blowout loss. It's damn tough to take, thinking what might have been. It takes big balls and big guts to move forward, but we can take solace in knowing that the Saints left it all out on the field and we'll be motivated next year. After the shock is gone, it's empowering.
    That's why I'm so excited they're moving in another direction on defense. Look, Gregg Williams brought us to the promised land where our defense STUNK before. But it was a flash in the pan.... 1 and done. Once the rest of the NFL figures out what you're doing, they adjust.

    Glad we have something to look forward to!

    My thoughts exactly, Mark. Great comment.

    Kudos to Bama. They came prepared and kicked butt. Kudos to Nick Saban who prepared his team. Bama's d-line was overwhelming LSU's o-line.
    I noticed Bama was dug in the trenches ready to stop LSU's option attack.

    So what does LSU and Les Miles do? The run the option and ONLY throw screens to the corners.

    I wasn't at this game as I was lucky enough to attend the last 2 BCS Championships LSU won. I read that receivers were open down field most of the evening.

    I believe if LSU moved to a straight up running game and pro style offense, Bama would have been caught off guard.

    As for Les.... SHAME ON YOU for attempting to destroy the potential PRO career of Jarrett Lee. SHAME! LSU was 8 - 0 under Lee. Les, what you did was hurt Lee's career, but you also hurt Jefferson who is NOT pro quality to start with - and he proved that in the big game.

    Penn State: Does "Fanhood" blind?

    apparently joe pa didnt know exactly what happened. he went to his superior to ask what needed to be done just like any employee at any job would've done

    to say he was required to do more is all based on morality and not legality

    fwiw sandusky has not been convicted of any crimes and has not admitted to any wrong doing.....you cannot fire someone in good faith without knowing all the details

    if a company is willing to fire employees without knowing all the facts that shows people that no matter how long you've been a member of an organization and no matter how many great things you've done.....a negative allegation is more than enough to not support you in any way whatsoever and completely drop you from affiliation you have with said organization

    regardless....joe pa deserved and earned the benefit of the doubt over his countless years of service to penn state university.....at least until all the facts were known

    Students rally in defense of Paterno

    Thousands of Penn State students rally in defense of Paterno


    It gets worse...
    Quote:
    Lamp posts were tipped over and broken on Beaver Avenue, part of the campus business district, where students were met by police and pepper spray. A television truck was overturned, and students rushed the university's administration building, "Old Main," a couple of blocks away.
    Students chanted "We Are Penn State," "We want Joe" and "One more game" and yelled Paterno's name as they rushed the building, where a half-dozen police officers waited on the steps, preventing the mob from going inside.
