| More Sports Board|| Why Didn't Refs Notice Deflated Balls? They place balls before every play. - AlaTiger on 1/23/15 at 9:34 am|
11 of 12 balls were deflated. A Ref handled the balls before every single play. The inflation of the balls is TOTALLY up to the team with NO Referee oversight at all?
It is hard for me to believe that the balls would have been deflated to the point that they affected anything and that the NFL re...
| SEC Rant|| Georgia Should Be a Top 10 Program - AlaTiger on 1/22/15 at 2:22 pm|
Top 5 consistently.
This is a compliment to Georgia. They should be the dominant program in the East year in and year out. They have great recuitng grounds, resources, rabid fanbase, great university, academics, tradition, money - everything.
They should be really good at football, basketball,...
| Tiger Rant|| Why have a dedicated TEs coach instead of a QB coach? - AlaTiger on 1/22/15 at 11:35 am|
Seems like the WRs coach could coach TEs? Or, in LSU's offense, the OLine coach.
Why not put more of a focus on QBs than on TEs? I get that the OC works with QBs, but at LSU, we need all the help we can get for the most important position on the field.
Seems like it would help wi...

| Tiger Rant|| Clifton Garrett, Travonte Valentine, Rashard Robinson - AlaTiger on 1/16/15 at 1:04 pm|
If RR does what he needs to, the addition of Valentine and Garrett will play HUGE dividends next year.
With Steele coming in, you think part of the idea was trying to find a way to get Garrett and Beckwith on the field at the same time?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Best Meal in New Orleans for Under $10 - AlaTiger on 1/14/15 at 10:05 pm|
Any dish. Doesn't have to be a full meal. Could be a sandwich or an appetizer or just something different. Or, an entree too. Anything.
If you had a couple of days in NOLA and you didn't have a ton of money but you wanted to be blown away with food options, what do you pick?...
| SEC Rant|| Orgeron: "I don't care if they're committed to another school,..." - AlaTiger on 1/14/15 at 6:26 pm|
"...we're going to get them."
This will be interesting to watch.
| Tiger Rant|| My Opinion: Not Happy About This Staff - AlaTiger on 1/14/15 at 2:29 pm|
I am glad that Steele and Orgeron are good at recruiting. And, I am glad that Cam Cameron was in the NFL for so long. This is a great staff for convincing high school guys that they can come to LSU to make it to the NFL.
Where is the cohesive coaching to win at college football?
| Tiger Rant|| LSU Had 3 QBs Capable Of Winning a Championship in 2006 - AlaTiger on 1/12/15 at 11:24 pm|
All three at that stage of their career were capable of leading that 2006 team to an SEC and National Title.
Didn't happen, of course. :banghead:...
| Tiger Rant|| No Excuse for Such Horrible QB Play/Recruiting at LSU - AlaTiger on 1/12/15 at 10:35 pm|
Jones for Ohio State is unreal. He is everything that LSU wants from its QB. And, he was 3rd string.
I know that it has been talked about here ad nauseum. But, the point is that there should be no excuses for the abysmal QB play and horrible QB recruiting at LSU. We need to stop making excuses.
| Pelicans Talk|| Boston Is Horrible. How Do the Pelicans Lose to Them? - AlaTiger on 1/12/15 at 9:33 pm|
I read the summary thread and part of the game thread. So, I get what happened. But, I am a lifelong Boston fan so I follow them closely. They have no players. I mean, they have a few decent pieces in Sullinger and Olynk and Bradley and a few others, but they don't have a team. They are horrible.

Okay, we know that not all of the 1.5 Billion Muslims in the world are adherents of Radical Islam. Obviously, that is true or you would have millions and millions of terrorists. So, let's get that out of the way. This is not meant to bash Islam at all for anyone who gets the wrong idea. I am talking...

Every Southern state has its painful, horrid past on race, slavery, segregation, violence, etc. With Selma coming out, what is the opinion of those from Alabama about the past history of your state?
Why did white people in the past act that way?
Why was it so difficult for them to listen to an...

Saw it yesterday. Yes, the stuff with LBJ was fictionalized and that bothered me, but LBJ was a mean SOB anyway and I do know that he was trying to use/manipulate King in many ways. So, while the conversations are fictionalized, using LBJ to represent the white establishment that did oppose Civil Ri...

Just heard her on CNN.
Also wondering why these disaffected young men kept using Islam as a vehicle for their hate and violence.
So, is it an accident that Islam is being used as a platform for violence and the real fear is the Right? Is this the way that the Left is spinning this?

Saw where they are trying to get rid of Jeff Green and they want more draft picks. They have something like 1st round picks over the next 4-5 years - and a bunch of 2nd round picks too.
They won't use all of those picks. Are they just clearing everyone out and creating cap space and will then use...

Is there any answer other than Joe Montana?...
