| Tiger Rant|| 30 yrs ago today the Bill Arnsparger Era and the early "SEC Game of the Week" - I-59 Tiger on 9/8/14 at 10:59 am|
started in Gainesville and ended in a 21-21 tie. WTBS showed a handful of night games in 1983, including LSU at Tennessee but they started their 11:30 package which became JP,etc. The first game was this LSU-Florida game.
Florida had played a game a week earlier vs defending champion Miami in a ...

| Tiger Rant|| LSU - Wisconsin was cable's third highest rated show this past week - I-59 Tiger on 9/4/14 at 9:35 am|
4.7. If you compare it to the 'network' shows this game would have been 22nd or 23rd beating out Modern Family. :geauxtigers:...
| SEC Rant|| Is there some story behind Missouri playing at Toledo? - I-59 Tiger on 9/3/14 at 12:19 pm|
Is it some type of 5 for 1 deal or are there some inordinate amount of Missouri players from Toledo playing back home like some teams do in basketball? Other than Vandy I don't recall any SEC teams playing a football road game at a MAC school....
| Tiger Rant|| Sept 2: The DiNardo era started in 1995 and the Saban era started in 2000 - I-59 Tiger on 9/2/14 at 9:33 am|
both in broiling hot weather. LSU put up a good fight vs A&M College Station before losing 33-17. LSU crushed Western Carolina in 2000. Ironically Saban's first game at Alabama was vs Western Carolina....

| SEC Rant|| I can't see Finebaum taking idiot callers helping the SEC-N on TV - I-59 Tiger on 8/15/14 at 3:52 pm|
nationally. Guy down from me has Finebaum on radio. Overheard that idiot Legend calling in railing about how great Bama is how everyone else sucks. That nonsense was one thing on JOX and then when it was syndicated across the South. But I can't believe that ESPN wants him taking calls everyday from ...
| SEC Rant|| South Carolina fans, why was Richard Bell fired in 1982 after just one year? - I-59 Tiger on 8/13/14 at 1:08 pm|
guy was 4-7 but it wasn't like South Carolina had been a national power with one bowl after another.
Seems odd. :confused:...
| SEC Rant|| Give your age by providing the Year and opponent when your team scored that # - I-59 Tiger on 8/13/14 at 11:58 am|
I've done this most years here and some find the header confusing,but I don't know how to craft it any other way. Basically when you respond, don't say your age but think of a time your team scored that number in a game and put the year and opponent.
For example,lets say you are 45 year old Alaba...
| Tiger Rant|| Best guess on Mississippi State - LSU kickoff time - I-59 Tiger on 8/13/14 at 10:05 am|
plan on making this one. If its 11 ish (yuk) or 2:30 I'll drive back. Night and drive down and go back Sun.
Florida-Alabama is that day,too. I'm thinking CBS wants this one or Miss State-LSU....
| SEC Rant|| Bobby Humphrey brought JPW and Brandon Cox to our youth "Kickoff" Sunday - I-59 Tiger on 8/13/14 at 9:36 am|
and Antonio Langham. (JPW is John Parker Wilson,fwiw). Pretty cool of these guys, especially Humphrey. A guy at our church who is big Alabama fan has known Humphrey for 25+ yrs or so and asked him to do this about 5-6 yrs ago.
We have all of the youth come to the old Berry HS field and play touch...
| SEC Rant|| The ESPN Classic SEC game marathon is pretty sweet - I-59 Tiger on 8/5/14 at 8:07 am|
Keith Jackson and Frank Broyles doing the 1981 Georgia-Florida game last night was awesome. The 'slo-motion' replay showing the player's name in big graphics and showing scores periodically were neat. We have too much junk now.
Anyway, Keith and Frank from 1979-1985 :bow:....
| Tiger Rant|| LSU - Wisconsin last meeting -- 1972 - I-59 Tiger on 7/29/14 at 8:54 am|
LSU won in Madison 38-28 in 1971. Wisconsin came down the next year as LSU won, 27-7. #21 for Wisconsin is Rufus "Roadrunner" Ferguson who was their first 1,000 yard rusher.
Here Gerald Keigley takes a Bert Jon...
| More Sports Board|| 40 years ago tonight the World Football League started - I-59 Tiger on 7/10/14 at 10:58 am|
Legion Field, the Birmingham Americans vs the Southern California Sun. Well,there were other games that night,too. Fun stuff at first and pretty good crowds. But when college football and the NFL got going,they were cooked. Birmingham won this game, 11-7.

Prior to Corbin's arrival Vandy baseball was worse than the perception of the football program. No winning record in the SEC from 1980 to 2002. Unbelievable ! :usa:...

I watched the game and was excited. But I know nothing about the strategy and do's and don'ts.There are probably a lot of other folks that would benefit in a crash course or tutorial as to what to look for in the next game. :usa:...

Probably resonates more with the older folks on here.I remember watching him in '78 when he was 21 just 5 yrs older than I was thinking this guy has it all. Now he's died, just five yrs older than I am. Circle of life can be chilling at times. Here's the clip from the game ending at bat. Epic season...
| SEC Rant|| Tip of the hat to Mitch Gaspard - I-59 Tiger on 6/1/14 at 9:15 am|
that guy has a resolve and finds a way to channel it to his team. I know Mike Martin always fields one of the best teams in America until Memorial Day and collapses, but winning that game down there was huge.
Much like Miles and the Louisiana hurricanes in 2005, I don't think Gaspard gets enough ...

I'm not a real big SEC rah,rah, guy but this just tickles me. Knowing how the SEC's domination drives Jim Delaney out of his mind, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when the pairings came out. :lol:
And before some jackass chimes in on "baseball isn't big nationally" remember, Del...
