| 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...

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.

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...

| Tiger Rant|| First Game Targets: WR 13; RB 5; TE 3 - Salviati on 9/3/14 at 12:22 pm|
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...

Just about four years ago, my brother was diagnosed with cancer in his tongue. I asked for the prayers of the good people on TigerDroppings, and he got better. I'm sure the radiation and chemo significantly contributed to the improvement in his condition, but I believe in the power of prayer.

Lots of folks talk about how A&M is the place to be if you are a WR: "They toss the ball at A&M"; "It's a wide open offense." Those folks may be right if a WR plans to be the third or fourth best WR on the team. Those tosses are spread among a bunch of players. That wide open offense does not benefi...
