Would never happen to any program outside of Bama and USC. Without ESPN shamelessly "promoting? Bama for the BCSNCG last year, they don't get in. Without the SEC office "giving" Bama a weak-ass schedule this year, they don't get in.

Time hire a new OC. Time to change offensive schemes. Time to get a real QB coach.

Don't disagree ... the offense needs a spark, but stability on the OL can do wonders for an offense.

Regardless of what you think. My family has been sitting in Tiger stadium since the late 40's and I have been going since 1964. Beating the Gumps has always been the gold standard.
Whether you realize it or not(Sabin knows)winning your bowl games affects recruiting in a positive way and will sometimes keep existing players from leaving for the NFL.

Your just making excuses. If LSU had addressed it's putrid offense sometime within the last 5 years it would be us with 3 BCSNC's not the Gumps.

re: Calling all degreed Psychologists!!! Can you Analyze Negative Tiger Fans?


I did say "losing 4 offensive lineman hurt an ALREADY struggling offense" in reference to their poor post season rankings over the past 4/5 years vs the defense top echelon rankings...meaning I give credit LSUs defense for getting LSU the majority of their wins...I'll tell you what though as I said with the D being stripped down...if Miles pulls out 10 wins next season..I'll be the first to come back on here and say I was wrong about the guy...you were right about one thing..I should have said that one thing first...

wow, welcome to the rant. one post yesterday and then POOF, gone like a troll.

anyway, i also call you bullshite! the majority of nega's are alcoholics and just talk negative b/c of their own self image.

most posi's are genuine fans who use their intelligence and logic to defend the young men athletes and coaches from nega-attacks. most posi's also understand the double disease of negativity and alcoholism, realizing that a bottom must be hit before any rationality can be introduced into the conversation.

this anonymous blog deals w/ much bigger issues than lsu sports. it is a psychological petri
dish exposing nature and nurture.

LSUPsych-ops, you is dumb as shite.

and some of our own "fans" call us "lucky."


So you think Miles' game plan was to have Dennis Dixon go down and then have Pat White go down? LSU was seconds away from 4 losses in 2007. They lost 2 games with a team stacked as it is. If you don't think LSU got lucky to make it to the NC, you don't know enough about football. It always takes some luck to get to the NC. It happens that LSU got really really lucky that EVERYTHING went their way on the last Saturday.

No he didn't. Ar-Kansas and UK were un-ranked at year's end. You're not one of those braniacs that uses game time rankings are you?

LSU's greatest accomplishment in their 100+ year history.


Weird, I would think the undefeated championship season in 1958 and the 1 loss championship in 2003 were better accomplishments than a 2 loss season... Just imagine 2011 being finished off properly.

yet we finished 10-3, less than 60 seconds from 12-1.


Let me interrupt your diatribe; why did LSU lose those 2 games? If you watched the Bama game, there is nobody else you can put the blame on but Miles. He even said it himself. If you watched the Clemson game, you watched some of the dumbest play calling in the history of college football. How does the sand taste for some of you?

quote:

Difference was, LSU scared the death out of Alabama and likely wins that game 8 out of 10 times,


Didn't realize "scaring" wins championships. LSU wins the Bama game and they get to play scrimmage against Not Damn. You guys should be pissed off that wasn't LSU, but instead you bury your heads in the sand, swallow some of Miles' gravy and call everyone who sees this a "negatiger".

If you had known before this season started that LSU would be without their Heisman-candidate DB, a starting LB, three (and sometimes 4) Offensive Linemen, and their starting RB, would you have predicted 10 wins this year?



And yet, with all these excuses, LSU was winning the Bama game and would have won the fricking game had Miles stayed out of his own way.

It is amazing how you pumpers just glaze right over that LSU was seconds from being in the NC and it's because Miles took it out of the player's hands.

I just don't get how these "positively on drugs" fans don't see this? The last 3 years of unreal talent on D is gone. LSU had the D, ST's, RB's, and even WR's to win 3 in a row. At minimum, to win in 2011 and 2012. Yet, you guys think "we'll get em next year..."?

Again Topwater apology for that posting mistake I made a couple days ago...new to rant and learning.
Has anyone seen the OP reply with anything? I guess that "we'll get 'em next year" philosophy makes the Sunshine pumpers feel better?

Yet the "catastrophe syndrome" persists. Google "Nick Saban quote LSU fans Catastrophe Syndrome". Circa 2002 & 2004. A strange phenomenon indeed, no one explains it better.
---newsflash!!!!! What the hell do you think BAMA fans were doing when Shula was there>? What do you think led them to back the Truck up to Miami and dump all that money on his front yard? I'll tell ya, people that wanted better, expected better and knew they could get it. Louisiana State University fans do not have a "copyright" on that "strange phenomenon"
quote:

Dont take my word for it, hear it from the horse's mouth. We have a vein of negativity in this fanbase that is unparalleled nationwide/historywide. And Saban has coached all over in all sorts of programs/regions/situations.
Not gonna take your word for this, because you have no damn clue what words have come out of the mouth of every fan in every fan base all over the country. I can however read the interwebz and everyone bitches about their team....it's why it's called "their team". It's silly for you to insinuate that all the other fans in the country except LSU have excessive amounts of composure and refrain from posting their "negative rants" on their team site.



Let me end this by saying, i don't want Miles gone. I want him to fricking make the improvements to keep up with BAMA and he is not. Yes he's been the most successful in LSU history...it's somehow really not good enough to get out of the shadow of a team up the road. I just don't like being in the mix once ever few years when the "other team" is in it ever year.

It's all good. After I replied I figured it out. I just saw the post and said what the hell. Then I saw how many posts you had and figured that is what happened.

To expand on this further...I wonder what happens if LSU sits all their starters in the 2011 SEC Championship and purposely loses...

Does Alabama vault us? Does Okie State? Do we still get to go to the National Championship?


We actually discussed this scenerio at work last year. It was SAID that if Lsu lost to Georgia, we would have still went to the BSCNCG. So with the rules of on 2 from a conference, We should have sat our starters, lost then Georgia to the Sugar, LSU to the BSCNCG, and Bama would have gotten shafted. It would have been LSU vs OK St.

Yep, that's what I said, you got it. It was all in his plan.

quote:

You're not one of those braniacs that uses game time rankings are you?


Well, according to this logic of yours, if LSU beats say a #20 in a bowl game, and that team finishes unranked in the final rankings because of their final loss, then that would not be a victory over a ranked team? Listen, its always looked at by statistical analysts as what the team is ranked at the time. Perhaps it is you who needs to know your ball a bit more.

According to this thinking of yours, LSU does not have the record of 7 wins over ranked teams (most all time in NCAA until we broke it by 1 in 2011). But yet the record books say that we do and it was, again, widely mentioned by the press and coaches as why LSU was so great that year (making the case for us to appear in the NC game).

The poster was trying to downplay the strength of the teams we lost to that yr even going as far as to distort facts, hoping no one would notice, a classic move by a "negatiger". Kentucky was in fact ranked. And that's simply a fact. Check out all the sites and publications that have schedules of teams from the past with scores next to them in graphs for statistics.

They ALWAYS have the ranking of the team (at the time of the game) next to them, and the final ranking is never mentioned in the graphs. That's because when a team loses, the rankings change. And one team has to lose, so it distorts the stats accordingly if you were to use the final ranking. For rankings are mostly based on wins and loses, and unfortunately not much else, an inherent flaw. Most bigtime college ball fans know this.

BTW, your use of "braniac" is ad hominem, sign of weakness and insecurity in the substance of one's argument. Plus, maybe before attempting to call someone a brainiac in a derogatory manner, you might want to at least spell it correctly, especially considering the epic irony of such an error.

After all, what is a "braniac" anyway? One who is known for their flowing love of bran muffins? More fiber! GTFO bra, poor showing indeed.

Well, yes, 2003 was a great accomplishment, perhaps LSU's best, but we did lose to a Ron Zook coached team at home by 12 points, certainly not in triple OT. And FLA that yr finished 8-5 as well, but no one seems to be bringing that up when trying to poo-poo on Miles and his '07 season's accomplishments.

Plus we had to stop Chokelahoma on the last drive to win in the NC game avoiding overtime. In '07 we embarrassed and throttled OH state, in the same stadium (it was over by halftime, and 31 unanswered thru the early 3rd).

My comment on this point was actually pertaining to the fact that not only did we win the NC that yr but that we throttled the #1 defense in the NC game in spectacular fashion and simultaneously set the all time record for wins over ranked teams all time in the NCAA.

And also, although 1958 was a great accomplishment, it was not in the modern era and was pre-integration, so to me, I think its not quite the same as our NC's from the 2000's. The game has changed enormously since then. In my opinion, average teams post-integration in the modern era would wipe the mat with national champions from the 50's, just my opinion.


quote:

Just imagine 2011 being finished off properly.


And yes, trudat, if we would have finished properly this would not only have been our greatest accomplishment ever (also a very young team btw) but we would have set the record NCAA all time of wins over ranked teams at 9, completely putting it out of reach for almost any team going forward, and we also would have set the largest margin of victory over ranked teams in combo with the other record (btw, all with Stud as the OC, hard to fire a guy 1 yr removed from that). But we still broke the old '07 record by 1 with 8, even tho the debacle occurred on 1/09/12.

That night was as painful for me as any other massive Tiger fan. But I think the 2011 season really sheds light on the old, seemingly ever present, argument of Les only having success with Sabin's playaz. U dont hear that one as much anymore.

But honestly, although there were coaching blunders in the 1/9/12 game by Les that are obvious by his extreme lack of attempt at adjustment. I dont necessarily feel like crucifying him for the very uncharacteristically poor performance of the OL and JJ's complete meltdown (which was a long time coming actually IMO).

And I think honestly with the pass rush we were sustaining that night, if he put Lee in, he probly would have been injured on the first series he undertook (not to say that I didnt shout at the screen as loud as I possibly could as we all did to simply put the dude in the game and lets exhaust all our options before basically forfeiting at that point). It will forever be a mystery why that truly occurred.

But lets consider this point when thinking of 2011. LSU actually was an overachiever that yr considering the vast youth of the roster and we even still beat bama (2011 being possibly their best team ever) in their house (completely dominating them in overtime, we "made their arse quit" as satan would say), but we did this with what NFL scouts projected from our team as 11 (younger) draftable players to bama's projected 17 (more experienced).

We never should have won on Nov 5th (on paper), for those reasons, but we overachieved. I personally think that is a massive credit to Les' ability to motive men in hardcore fashion. I personally dont think any team in college ball history could have beat bama's 2011 team in a revenge game vs one of their main rivals in a stadium w/ 2-1 bama/opponent fans on that night. Also, with the pretty much greatest college coach of all time being 2 games down to a "retard" coach who consistently had less NFL talent than his teams did and the title on the line ($abin's entire legacy depended on that win).

But Miles never backed away in pussyish fashion from playing them again when asked. But I betcha lil satan would have squirmed publicly if he were in that position if asked the same question had he won on Nov 5th. And that's one of the main diffs b/t the men.

That all pertains to the scheduling that Les supports and why he even has those two records to begin with (most wins over ranked teams in NCAA history '07 and '11). So yes, I think its at least on par with our greatest accomplishments at LSU, if not the best ever ('07).

The point of it all is perspective. We all choose our perspectives many times. Sometimes its not a choice, but most times it is. Any champion in any thing will tell you, that if you lose perspective and focus mostly on the negative and hence lose hope, you will never get anywhere in anything truly difficult.

The point of many in this thread is to show what some continually choose to focus on. I for one don't subscribe to the Catastrophe Syndrome, especially during these times in the program's history. Some may choose otherwise.

I guess if that makes me a "pumper", well, than believe what you want to believe, most people will do that anyway. I choose to be supportive of LSU, not foolishly positive even when things suck, but optimistically supportive, there's a difference. Hope ya'll out there on the fence or slightly leaning one way or the other can hear me on that a bit.

I personally believe these Tigers are far from finished under Les. Now, how's that for a diatribe? Take it for what you will.

I thought this was a great post. Illustrates much of what some of the older Tigers feel. Kind of like what the Saints fans deal with after the trauma from the old days.
