| Tiger Rant|| 25 years ago tonight LSU was robbed by Dick Burleson against Florida at Tiger - I-59 Tiger on 10/7/14 at 4:29 pm|
Stadium. Dick, as he should be aptly referred to,was the head official that night who miraculously decided that Kyle Morris' pass thrown out of bounds indeed crossed the imaginary plane with :01 left after the clock went to 0:00 (basically this led to the ability for QBs to ground/spike the ball wit...

| SEC Rant|| Jordan-Hare is the most underrated stadium in America - I-59 Tiger on 10/6/14 at 7:34 am|
its certainly one of the generally "nicest" in terms of looks.But it is also one of the loudest,period. Oddly its rarely brought up when "top stadiums" list are listed.
Congrats. Solid whipping. :cheers: ...
| Tiger Rant|| I've always liked Miles, but the way we played was inexcusable - I-59 Tiger on 10/6/14 at 7:30 am|
what is so frustrating is Mississippi State laid out the live practice tape for the Auburn game. Sure, it would have taken a herculean effort and some turnovers to have won. No one wants a "moral victory" but with the new players we have a loss to Auburn in and of itself wasn't unexpected.

was in 1988. LSU won 7-6 and Ole Miss won, 22-12.The Earthquake Game and the brick through Bill Curry's window. That game also gave rise to the legendary Cotis Nunley who watched the Tide's QBs go 0-fer passing that day and decided to walk-on. :gmt:...

looking at the map on LSU Sports and it indicates turning left or right on River Road. But at the nearest lot on River south of the intersection it show an arrow going North only.
