    Kevin Faulk was really hoping he didn't have to unleash that smoke. Fucking Breckyn got what was coming to him.

    Apparently this douchelord got into it with an FSU staffer last year on the sideline before a game. He was pushed away and told to get away from the staffer, walked away punching himself in the head, then went back and shoved said staffer again. Apple doesn't fall far from the trees in that family.

    Sounds like Dameyune Craig is what started it. He is a coach at A&M. He was with Fisher until 2012 and went to Auburn in 2013. He was famously stealing our signals during the first half of the national championsip until the genius Fisher finally covered them up. He then went to LSU before being fired by Coach O. I guess after the win Sat night he ran over talking all sorts of shit to the LSU sideline. And this douchelord Cole followed him.

    I love that ESECPN has not yet identified this guy as Fishers nephew. And titled their article Kevin Faulk gets into shoving match.

    I can't remember being completely disinterested in a season, 9+ months before it even starts. :laughing:

    I think he still has a job for 3 reasons:
    1.) No 'permanent' President at the university at the moment. Interim Pres (and by extension Swann) likely don't have the horsepower to make any long term changes.
    2.) Dr. Perv at the med campus was a PR disaster, and is going to cost the school a fortune. Helton isn't likely to attract the NCAA's bloodhounds any time soon, so at least there's no scandal there.
    3.) Who is going to replace him?

    In general terms, I'm all good with keeping a coach after 1 bad season....particularly when he was 21-6 in the previous two, including a Pac12 title and a Rose Bowl win. I don't want a revolving door of coaches, so I'm good with giving coaches a mulligan.

    That being said....
    I don't think Helton is as good of a coach as the 21-6 indicates. I think Darnold's heroics bagged him far more wins than he 'deserved.' And it's not just the 5-7 record this year. It's the way the team played that is hard to swallow. Totally undisciplined, and soft as butter. Every game was the same: score 2 or 3 times early and look decent for a quarter or so, and then bend over, grab the ankles, and hang on for dear life while the opponent ripped off as many points as they wanted. That's all coaching.....or lack thereof.

    It'll be interesting to see what the crowds look like next year. The renovated Coliseum debuts, including a bunch of new suites (that people paid between $1m and $8m for)....and this is the product they're being offered?

    $8 million for a Coliseum suite to USC football and people say Disney Cruises are overpriced. :laughing:

    Eh - you were a wee babe when Paul Hackett was coach, but the pattern was very similar - jump out to a lead early, on the backs of the speedsters USC always seems to have at the skill positions, then watch that lead erode, fade, and turn into a deficit as inferior coaching and lack of adjustments take hold.

    It was like giving an addict $5000 to turn his life around where at first he gets and apartment and a bus pass, applies for jerbs, and looks like he's gonna be okay. Then, after not finding any jerbs, gets discouraged and buys a six-pack to chill out, which morphs into trying to score smack with his old dealer who has now jacked up prices. Pretty soon he's deeply in deficit again and smoking pole to get his fix.

    But really - I fully expect nothing better than a 7-5 record next year, and that's probably wildly optimistic. I predict we will lose to the rivals, as well as Stanford, UW, and Oregon. The rest of the schedule is a toss up, as Cal has broken whatever mystique we once held over them, the Arizonas are going to be tough (for us) and Utah and Colorado likewise. Furthermore, we face Fresno in the first game. They're going to be coming off a strong season and have always been a tough out for USC for various reasons.

    So, next year at best will be highly mediocre, but it could also be a 3-win unmitigated disaster, with attendance figures in the 40-45k range.

    I'm not going to defend that chode Fisher, but unless there is more we don't see on video here, Kragthorpe was exaggerating as fuck.

    So upon further review, Fisher didn't really do shit wrong. He was trying to keep Dameyune Craig away from the LSU sideline and then ended up getting bumped from behind by Kragthorpe. This reddit post has all the evidence.

    Kragthorpe is a liar.

    lol what? That is nice spin. The video shows him pushing Kragthorpe in the chest after Craig had already left. And then continues to get into the faces of everybody there. Now can that be interpreted as a punch by a guy with a pacemaker? Maybe, could he be embelishing the force? Maybe. But Cole Fisher is a hothead as witnessed last year when he went at it with an FSU staffer twice before a game. He went after people employed by his uncle. The guy doesn't make good decisions.

    At best you have him trying to get a coach on the A&M staff from getting into a fight after the game. And then himself getting into a fight. At worst the guy with a history if fighting on the field with non-players backing up his coach and then getting into it with Kevin Faulk and apparently a safety for LSU. Who punched him in the head and settled him down.

    Neither outcome looks good for A&M imo.

    That ain't what I saw, b. He was chasing Craig the entire time. He got him away from the sideline and was heading back. Kragthorpe came up behind him and bumped him. He then pushed Kragthorpe away. At no point did Kragthorpe buckle over or get hit out of nowhere.

    He also got sucker punched by an LSU player and Faulk didn't really do shit to him if you watch the video. He never even buckled and gave one back.

    Weird that a FSU fan would try to spin this as a bad thing for A&M

    I am relaying what happened last year with the same guy as he went after an FSU staffer. But do you think this is this a good look either way for A&M? A coach running over like that to talk shit and get in the face of the opposing team? And the nephew of the head coach getting into it with them as well?

    It probably isn't, but to me, it is a worse look on LSU with a lying corch and a sucker punching player.

    "I got punched in the pacemaker" Fuck off man. He knew that was playing on errybody's sympathy and we all bought it.

    I can admit that was no punch. But to Kragthorpe on the receiving end it may have felt different. But after pushing Kragthorpe what does he do? Runs into the LSU mob and gets in their faces.
