| SEC Rant|| Bama Fans: Why Would You Want Kirby Smart to Replace Saban Whenever He Leaves? - AlaTiger on 12/5/13 at 1:42 pm|
I am not saying that Saban is going to leave this year. I have no idea WHEN he will leave, but he will leave/retire one day. So, whenever that day is, why do you want Kirby Smart?
He is a lifelong assistant/coordinator and he coaches in the area of Saban's strength and constant involvement. Do yo...
| Political Talk|| How Much Actual Racism Is There Really? - AlaTiger on 12/4/13 at 11:41 am|
Racism is when someone thinks that they are better than someone else or have more value becuase of the color of the skin, their race, etc.
I know of almost no one who believes this. Sure, people believed this 40 years ago. It was a leftover from Darwinian eugenics and Modernist thought that was d...
| Tiger Rant|| Does Terrance Magee Remind Anyone of Jacob Hester? - AlaTiger on 12/3/13 at 2:21 pm|
Watching the A&M game, I was thinking that he runs kind of like Hester - hard and low to the ground.
He seems tough as nails, too.
I really hope he doesn't think about going pro. I would love to have him back next year as the main back and as a senior. He has paid his dues. It is time for him ...

This team is not 4 TDs better than the Saints. It is a bad night for New Orleans and Seattle is playing out of their minds.
We'll get them next time. And, we will take Carolina twice too.

Explain this to me:
LSU blows out Texas A&M and Auburn ths year and loses to Georgia and Ole Miss by a field goal and gets blown out by Alabama.
Alabama squeaks by Texas A&M and gives up over 600 yards and gets beat by Auburn.
LSU and Alabama were tied 17-17 in the 4th quarter until Alabama...

| SEC Rant|| Who Are the 2 Best Teams In the Country? - AlaTiger on 12/2/13 at 9:29 am|
Based on what you have seen this season - forget about looking at records only and rankings - who are the 2 best teams?
I would say Alabama and Florida State.
Shouldn't they play for the national title?
I wonder if the voters will put these two teams in the BCSNCG?...

For the most part, Tiger Stadium did not empty out, even though it was cold and rainy!

Every. Single. Day. That is how often I hear charges and cries of racism from the Left. White Privilege. Race. Racism. Prejudice. Minority Oppression.
Can someone please tell me where this exists? I mean, really, what are people talking about?
Educate me. Help me understand why it is "Raci...

That was garbage. He said it was uncatchable. It was uncatchable because Gronk was pushed 3-4 yards away from where the ball was going BEFORE it got there and it was intercepted.
Guy is clearly a shill for the NFL. Gruden is right. Steve Young is right. Dilfer is right. Everyone watching this is...
| Tiger Rant|| Does Baylor Have Better Athletes Than LSU? - AlaTiger on 11/16/13 at 10:16 pm|
Yeah, they are in the Big 12, but they are really fast and are flying all over the field on offense. Their defense isn't any good, but ours isn't either.
Athletes or Coaching? What makes the difference? And, it isn't schedule. LSU wouldn't be scoring 60+ ppg in the Big 12 this year. ...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU fans left in 3rd qtr of Auburn game b/c it was hot/rainy/traffic/etc - AlaTiger on 11/16/13 at 2:48 pm|
As it turns out, that was the best, most dominating win of the year over what is now a top 10 team whose only loss was to LSU. Just thinking about what could have been and how our crowd used to be great. Then, I thought about how the best game of the season was one where the crowd left way early.
| Tiger Rant|| We Need to Change Our Bye Week Strategy - AlaTiger on 11/16/13 at 8:03 am|
We need a bye week before lesser opponents like Ole Miss, Miss. St., Kentucky, and then play the better teams right after that.
For example, it would have been better this year to have a bye before Ole Miss and then play Alabama the next week.
We need focus for the lesser teams talent-wise and...

He has played well in spots, but how consistent do you think he can be? Or, will Drew just get it to whoever he can unless his name is Jimmy Graham, his one consistent option?
Still is available in my Fantasy league and I might pick him up. I had him earlier and dropped him because of inconsiste...

| SEC Rant|| SEC Team Stats: LSU has the #4 Defense in the SEC? - AlaTiger on 10/16/13 at 7:41 am|
That was a real shocker for me. Judging by the comments here, I would have thought that LSU's defense was ranked around #12 or something.
I haven't seen this posted. If so, whatever. But, compare and contrast your team at will.

When have we ever fumbled this much? I think this is a fluky thing and I know the coaches are working on it. Our defense isn't creating a lot of TO's (ony 9 on the season so far), but we are in better position and could have had 3 INT's last game conceivably.
I think that one hidden stat is fixin...

Everyone complaining about the offense is just dumb. 175 yards rushing against the #2 defense in the country that had been giving up around 60 ypg? I will take it every day.
We could have scored a lot more if we would have tried to air it out. It was a different kind of game. Stop griping.
