| SEC Rant|| ncaa basketball - jim712 on 3/26/14 at 4:52 pm|
Between the commercial breaks and the constant trips to the foul line, I find ncaa basketball almost unwatchable. It's a great game but they've really done a number on it....

. . . and Trump? The republicans clearly have a problem on their hands. Not only are they fighting a massive demographic shift that does not favor them, they are on the wrong side of many social issues. What do they do?...

| Tiger Rant|| If Georgia plays LSU close . . . - jim712 on 12/2/11 at 12:51 pm|
that could quite possibly be another reason why Bama may get jumped by OK ST. Think about it; one of the primary reasons why Bama is perceived to be the far superior one-loss team is because they played LSU virtually to a tie. If Georgia should play LSU close, then some luster will have been remov...

Missed the game. Can anyone tell me when it will be replayed on CST or anywhere for that matter?...

"Jarrett Lee played another mistake free game as LSU rolled. Hopefully this will end the Jordan Jefferson chatter."

I still don't understand why we got the lesser matchup but anyway you guys need to represent....
| Tiger Rant|| Alabama gets the better bowl, better matchup - jim712 on 12/5/10 at 8:03 pm|
Unbelieveable. Bama gets a top ten, 11-1 Mich. St. in the Cap One (most prestigious non-BCS game) and we get 18th ranked, 9-3 A&M. I guess some Tiger fans got what they want. A classic no win situation for LSU. And a loss would be disastrous....
| Tiger Rant|| Oregon opener next year a mistake - jim712 on 11/23/10 at 11:44 am|
This game makes no sense to me. We already have strength of schedule (SEC!) so we need no help there. Why play a game that we could quite possibly lose starting the season 0-1 and then be essentially out of the race? Clearly the current system is overly generous to undefeated teams. Look how Boi...
| SEC Rant|| So Spurrier just gets a pass? - jim712 on 10/20/10 at 4:53 pm|
The ridiculous sequence of events at the end of the SC/Kent is as bad as anything Les Miles has ever done, and Spurrier lost! Miles, however, gets skewered nationally but virtually nothing is said about Spurrier's idiotic game management. It's annoying. (For that matter, has Miles ever potentiall...
| Tiger Rant|| QB comparison in the Advocate - jim712 on 10/19/10 at 11:01 am|
Just in case you missed it, there was a very good, strictly data-based comparison of JL and JJ in the paper this morning.
Analysis of last two games: JL has started 11 drives resulting in 8 (!) touchdowns. JJ has started 12 drives resulting in 0 (!) touchdowns.

"Miles was defiant in his postgame news conference. When asked about the criticism he took leading up to the game, he said he could 'give a rat's ass' about what people had to say."

Holy crap! Is this possible? I'm afraid it is. Offensive ranks as of this point in the season:
ULM: 95; ULL: 100; LSU: 102.

"The most impressive showing is by Louisiana, which ranked 25th in total population but has the sixth-most high school players in the NFL.

| Tiger Rant|| LSU football 2010-2011 - jim712 on 9/26/10 at 4:04 pm|
This year: 9 wins decent bowl (we are not going to beat upper tier SEC teams if we cannot complete a pass)
Next year: Because of the "success" of the year before (9 wins, bowl game), the whole crew is back again (Crowton, Miles, Jefferson, etc.) and the very same things plays out again. 8 or 9...

Thought you guys might find this interesting. On some youtube videos, you can click on a little soccer ball at the bottom of the screen and an annoying buzzing sound comes on that drowns out the video. Pretty damned appropriate although I don't see the point of it....

There doesn't seem to be an original idea anywhere. Shrek 4, Sex and the City 2, Ironman 2, Nightmare on Elm Street (remake)...
