1.) Is it safe to say that our biggest needs are DB (safety) and WR?
Since DB is an early focus (Vorhees, Hardeman and Paris already committed) how will affect us with Brown, Jackson and Jones and any other DB targets?
WR seems to be another pressing need. Who are our top targets there other...

The National Championship is not supposed to be easy. 115 followers of college football and 59 coaches, as a collective group ignored what the computers said and voted to put Alabama against LSU in the title game. If in their wisdom, Alabama is the next best team - for the record, I agree - then br...

This is 4 years in the making. In 2008 LSU had the National Championship Hangover. Some of the players had to grow up fast. In 2009, LSU decided to win and win now with a defense and no-frills offense. It worked for the most part, but there were some issues. It ended with a loss on a crappy field to...
| Tiger Rant|| Eleven Weeks in, this is still the LSU quote of the year. - Tigersomething on 11/21/11 at 8:09 pm|
"LSU's unit is apparently composed of half human/half swamp mutant hybrids who spit diesel fuel and long to hear the terrified screams of small children."

Tigers may eat their young, but these fans eat young tigers.
The fans don't always drink beer, but when they do they drink Dos Equis.
| Tiger Rant|| LSU Defense vs Alabama - Tigersomething on 11/9/11 at 9:08 am|
Is anyone concerned that we had guys out of position, busted assignments, and more missed tackles again? This was almost as bad as the West Virginia game. Lucky for us, McCarron is not ready for prime time, yet.
How do you leave Trent Richardson wide open, TWICE?
Brandon Taylor should offer to...

| Conference Expansion|| I believe West Virginia should be Team No. 14 - Tigersomething on 9/27/11 at 7:40 am|
If you watched the A&M introduction last night, one of the things that I heard that I have always believed is that the culture of the SEC is special. You saw last night a very different culture with the Aggies. Male Cheerleaders, weird cheers, strange rituals, but mostly passion. Mike Slive went so ...
| Conference Expansion|| Do the Rules of Conference Expansion apply to the SEC? - Tigersomething on 9/20/11 at 6:37 pm|
Four people (Delaney, Scott, Slive and Swofford) know the rules at this point. I'm definitely not one of them.
So if the expansion rule its about TV sets and $, I get A&M. I can sort of get Mizzou. BUT, if these are the rules we need to rip the ACC to shreds, poach VT and UNC and take FSU for goo...
| Conference Expansion|| Fact or Crap: The SEC will have 13 teams in 2012-2013 - Tigersomething on 9/20/11 at 3:14 pm|
For me: Fact
I think that the SEC will have 13 teams. Its a strange number and will not help scheduling, but Texas A&M was a good fit for both parties, so it will work.
The SEC will be content to stay at 13 until they find the right fit. The right fit is based on Economic, Geographic, Cultural...
| Tiger Rant|| West Virginia Game Atmosphere + Other issues affecting this week - Tigersomething on 9/19/11 at 6:13 pm|
I'm not saying that WV is an "easy" place to play, but I have heard SEC-like.
Do the people (Herbstriet, et al) realise that:
1.) We play in these "SEC-type" atmospheres all the time. We call it Gameday.
2.) We prefer to play at night. Playing at night is not really an advantage for WVU. I...

The SEC is playing third fiddle (at best) in the whole conference alignment thing and everyone is thwarting our potential targets. ACC upping the exit ante, etc. Remember when the SEC was at the cutting edge in this game?
I hope the powers that be are working d...

25,000 people on campus, roughly half are boys and the best chance we have to get the ball into the endzone on a kickoff is a Kathy Ireland clone?
Surely we have somebody on campus who can kick the ball to the endzone. And don't say burn the redshirt off the kicker from Dallas Jesuit, because if ...

So far the start of this season has an eerie feel to it, like we've seen it before. Start of the year with two wins, one against a BCS Title Game contender and looking to play in SEC bloodbath after bloodbath.
We have Kentucky on the schedule and we have Tennessee replacing South Carolina. Our ch...

If the Saints coaching staff was in charge of the gameplan, practice all week and coaching in Auburn on Saturday, does LSU win?
My answer is no, but I'd be willing to hear the argument.
The issue I saw is that we got our butts handed to us on the line of scrimmage, and its hard to win any gam...

The "Your Turn" offense is really what is happening to the offense. This phenomenon is described as "Everyone on the offense is taking turns screwing up." When 10/11 players on offsnse do what they are supposed to, plays do not work. So on each play it's "your turn" to screw up your assignment, and ...

1. We were ouplayed the entire game. Ole Miss ran up and down the field, but we stiffened up in the red zone and mostly held them to field goals. Our TD in the first half came on a blocked FG, a luck play.
2. In the second half, Ole Miss had a chance to ice the game, but couldn't. Again our D he...
