| Tiger Rant|| Will D return to former dominance over next couple of years? - KnoxvilleBerryTiger on 2/14/14 at 9:42 pm|
I am talking about the type of D where the other team is doing good to simply get a first down, or cross midfield,and avoiding turnovers by not having it pried from their grasp,because getting into the endzone is next to impossible type D. Have offenses gotten the upper hand in the SEC with the lik...

So, I never heard of the polar vortex before this cold snap.
In hearing that the cold temperatures could be from global warming that has resulted in melting of arctic ice, and then learning that arctic ice has increases profoundly in recent years, I read up on it a bit and came away with questi...

| Tiger Rant|| How far has LSU Basketball fallen? - KnoxvilleBerryTiger on 3/20/13 at 9:12 pm|
I remember the good years under Brown, and the drought after, until our recent final 4 run. I thought we were back. But we weren't. And we aren't.
When will we be?
Shoiuldn't it be reasonable to expect LSU to make it in to a field of 60+ teams about every year?
I really have quit followi...

| Political Talk|| Do you see a way out of this spending? - KnoxvilleBerryTiger on 3/6/13 at 8:56 pm|
It looks like we spend $1000 every 1-2 seconds.
Yet, the debt seems to be going up by several thousands in the same time frame. Is this because wwe are borrowing 4 out of every 10 dollars spent, and the interest is swallowing us whole?
| Political Talk|| It's not the Republicans, but the Dems that are digging their own hole - KnoxvilleBerryTiger on 3/4/13 at 8:34 pm|
Allow me to cut through the noise for a bit.
Sure, the Republicans leaders have became distant and inept. This takes its toll on the party. They are a big letdown.
But, now that sequestration is in effect, the monkey is on the Democrats back.
Because they are politicizing a very s...

First, if he has the measurables

Third, is playing against talent in a district that cranks out D-1 talent, Faulk, Roman, Trev Faulk?, Alley Broussard, JV, Cutrera, Alleman, Desean Smith, etc.
Fourth, Pa Pa was a college coach

First off all, I love seeing my Tigers impose their will on the ground. We do it as good as anyone in the country.
But, that doesn't excuse our inability to effectively implement:
1. Marquee receivers year after year. On our current roster that would include players such as such as Landry...

among the most complete and deep group we have had in recent memory.
I think they will more than make up for loss of Ford and Ware.

| Tiger Rant|| As Good as our Talent is, How has our Offense Been So Bad? - KnoxvilleBerryTiger on 1/16/13 at 8:54 pm|
With Big Names Year in and Year Out, with multiple coaching changes including hires such as Kragthorpe and Ensminger?, and with a D that sets them up, it almost defies logic that our offense is as bad as it is!
Shouldn't we at least rank in the top 50?
If this changes, we can be back on top.
| Tiger Rant|| The Truth Hurts - KnoxvilleBerryTiger on 1/8/13 at 8:36 pm|
On talk radio here in TN after hashing out the SEC, and on ESPN post game commentary, we are an afterthought at best behind Bama, A and M, UGA, SC, and UF.
Heck, we aren't even in ESPNs early top ten. Perhaps rightfully so. We can't expect to be ranked high, if our offense is among the worst in...
| Political Talk|| On What Legal Premise is Secession Allowed/not Allowed? - KnoxvilleBerryTiger on 1/5/13 at 5:56 pm|
I just read a few bits from a Texas secession website, and I have never heard the legal explanation of a state's rights, or lack therreof, in terms of secession.
BTW, I am not looking for a hijack of whether or not states should.
My simple question can they? And how so?
Thanks in Advance. ...

I know there's been a lot of talk about this, but check this out:
There are at least 4-5 teams in the SEC right now, that will project to do well over time.
UGA (after their resurgence)
TAMU (They are a sleeping giant)
You could make the case for Arky, AU, and SC if they b...

I moved to Knoxville around the year we beat them for the SEC title, and knocked UT out of a 2nd shot at a national championship. In those days we were out of our league against the Vols. They recruited nationally, and Saban hoped to put up a fence around the boot. And he did. And Tennessee star...

After seeing RR suited up for the Giants last night, it occurred to me how much we miss without a player like him.
Our receivers are good, and Landry might be my favorite player, but we lacked a player like:

| SEC Rant|| Would Notre Dame be the Underdog to SEVERAL SEC Teams? - KnoxvilleBerryTiger on 11/25/12 at 9:10 am|
I'll give credit where credit is due. They ran the table with a reasonable SOS and deserve a shot at the title, but I think I would take the following over ND:
A and M
And to beat the dead horse, would they run the table in the SEC?
I am actually glad about this m...

Just checked the roster.
I didn't realize that Copeland and Ford are Juniors

Also, Blue will play as a Junior, right?
On D, did I hear the announcers correctly state that only 4 of our defensive starters are seniors?

I have limited knowledge in biomechanics, but in watching the replay, a few interesting points come to mind:
He never tries to secure the ball with both hands. Instead, he keeps his left hand up all the way to the ground. Why? Sorta like a bull rider keeping his hand out to stay in position ab...

I would go with the blowout Miami win after getting taken to the woodshed by UGA in SECCG in 2004 ( I think this was Miles first year)
It showed that we could regroup and dominate, and I think it kept the Saban recruiting machine in tact in our state. I know others have been pivotal since, but t...
