| Tiger Rant|| Thanksgiving - Thankful for LSU football - Salviati on 11/27/14 at 3:47 pm|
I'm thankful for LSU football. I enjoy following the program and watching the games.
It was a tough transition year, but I'm thankful that the program is in good hands. I'm thankful for so much realistic optimism for 2015.
I'm thankful for the 2014 recruiting class, and I'm thankful that the ...
| Tiger Rant|| Any word on Porter and Alexander? Tough to win without those two. - Salviati on 11/16/14 at 2:56 pm|
Any word on whether Porter and Alexander will be back in time for Texas A&M?
It's tough to win SEC games without two starting linemen, and then LSU had Pocic playing out of his natural position. The entire interior of the offensive line was out or out of place.
It particularly sucks since the ...
| Tiger Rant|| The QBs Recruited by Les Miles Improved While at LSU - Salviati on 11/14/14 at 10:37 am|
Les Miles' OCs and QB coaches developed the QBs recruited by them and Les Miles.
Although there was one year of regression for Lee (2009) and Jefferson (2010), they both improved 3 out of 4 years. Mett also improved.
Regular season SEC ga...
| Tiger Rant|| Winners do not quit in the face of adversity - Salviati on 11/13/14 at 1:10 pm|
When LSU lost to Auburn, there were posters who said that the season was lost, championships were out of reach, and LSU should play for "next year." The team and the coaching staff could have quit. They could have gone the way of South Carolina mid-season. South Carolina quit and has continued to lo...

In the first three games of the season, Jefferson completed 29 of 45 (64.44%) for 410 yards (9.1 YPA), 3 TDs, and 1 Int. (Stats for the 11/5/2014 are not currently available.

With no opponent this week, I have no sense of urgency in analyzing anyone or anything.
Sunshine Pumpers are out crowing from the rooftops. In my opinion, it's not cool.
Perhaps they can redirect their energies to ranking Rant posters in the spectrum from Negative Nellies to Sunshine Pumpers...
| Tiger Rant|| Jennings is Effective and Improving - Salviati on 10/27/14 at 8:06 am|
For LSU to win, it must have an effective rushing offense.
For LSU to have an effective rushing offense, it must have an effective passing offense.
For LSU, an effective passing offense means that it keeps extra players out of the box. Without extra players in the box, defenses have difficulty...
| Tiger Rant|| Grimes . . . Maybe He Knows What He Is Doing - Salviati on 10/26/14 at 9:48 am|
The offensive line performed brilliantly last night.
There were a lot of TD posters questioning Miles for the hire and questioning Grimes in particular.
It takes a bit more thought to view a set of facts and circumstances as a dynamic, constantly evolving framework. However, to properly analyz...
| Tiger Rant|| Anthony Jennings QB Comparison - Salviati on 10/13/14 at 10:08 am|
People who refer to Jennings as “2.0” or the “Second Coming” may be right.
Jennings' Florida game stats look eerily familiar to stats of the past:
10 of 21 (48.0%) for 110 yards (0 INT; 1TD) [107.3 Rating]
I have to admit, I have a strong feeling of déjà vu: an LSU QB who plays okay du...
| Tiger Rant|| One Poster and One Issue at a Time: LSU Targets TEs - Salviati on 10/8/14 at 10:30 am|
Some posters refuse to stick to one issue. When you correct them on one issue, they crawfish or slime over to another issue. When you correct them on that issue, some moron will jump back to the first issue.
So let me start with one poster and one issue.

| Tiger Rant|| News Flash: Harris is a True Freshman - Salviati on 10/6/14 at 12:20 pm|
[b]DISCLAIMER 1:[/b] Harris has many qualities to be a terrific QB. He has a strong arm. He is fast and elusive. He improvises well when the play breaks down.
[b]DISCLAIMER 2:[/b] This is not a post to advocate for Jennings. He is a true sophomore and is going through his own growing pains.

There's no award or milestone for being here ten years, is there?
If there is, I'd like a hug from Rummy or a beer with Baloo.
Don't worry. There's still time....

Jennings' first four games of 2014 have been better than Lee's first four games of 2011 (or 2008) and better than Mett's first four games of 2012:

| Tiger Rant|| Growing Pains: Talent and Experience - Salviati on 9/25/14 at 1:53 pm|
The LSU football team has talent. No sane person would argue otherwise. Miles typically signs top ten recruiting classes every year. Indeed, Miles signed the #2 recruiting class in the nation last year.
However, much of the top talent from 2011 left after last year. These are the players who woul...

For those who want to get the TE more involved in the passing game, Cameron sure delivered: Dickson got 2 targets, and Smith got 1 target. That accounts for about 15% of the pass attempts. Unfortunately, there was only one completion, and it resulted in a fumble.
The RBs got a lot of targets too:...

There have been some posters who suggested that Lee's development was seriously hampered by having him start as a RS Frosh in 2008. The theory being that if Perrilloux had not gotten himself removed from the team, Lee would have developed into a better QB when he later got his chance to play, rather...
