| Tiger Rant|| Let's talk about the R guard position, Hoko or Evan Washington - banone74 on 7/23/14 at 8:21 am|
IIRC, someone on the rant stated it was Hoko's to lose. Here's my take:
Fanaika- Big arse Pacific Islander!! If I was building an offensive/defensive line, I'd start there. Those guys are built for it. Thick lower bodies, very powerful & aggressive. We can only hope to build a pipeline. I was pump...

I always preferred Electric Company to Sesame Street as a kid. I remember Spidey being on but never really thought about why until these threads. It just seems so random :lol:...

Holy crap was that interesting. I got home from work & had no intention of watching tv for an hour, just turned it on for noise. No shit, once I got into it I stood for 45 min & didn't even notice. Sorry if already discussed, but if you haven't seen it, check it out. It's basically Mike on stage...

Asking him over and over "do you know your responsibilities"? That's not your place asshat to drill him like he's on trial, took all the joy out of the moment ...
| Outdoor Board|| Ruger mini 14, why do I keep hearing about it? Educate me - banone74 on 3/2/13 at 6:45 am|
I've just heard it mentioned in a few conversations but never asked. Is it because it's on potential ban list? What makes it a target for the hippes, length? Just wondering if I should add it to the arsenal :lol: I already have 2 ARs, is it worth it? TIA, this board kicks arse

| LSU Recruiting Board|| If you were a stud University High recruit, would you go to LSU? - banone74 on 2/26/13 at 5:11 pm|
I'm sure I'll get blasted for asking, but I think it's a legit question & topic. Say you were at U-High for 4 years, how excited would you be about staying another 3-5 years in the same place? I assume this scenario doesn't apply to die-hard tigers. But what if you didn't grow up bleeding purple/go...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Is Chavis changing his philosophy of lighter, faster DEs - banone74 on 2/6/13 at 4:08 pm|
or just a coincidence that who they targeted just happened to be a little bigger? It just seems that Herron & Bower are different style of DE than Mingo & Sam. Either way I think this DL class as a unit is just sick. Imagine these guys in 3 years :ahh: ...
| Tiger Rant|| Chavis is going to do it AGAIN with Barrow - banone74 on 1/19/13 at 9:59 am|
Take an after-thought of kid out of HS, coach him up, and send him off to the NFL in the 2nd or 3rd round of the draft. Because if Barrow moves to MLB, is leader of D, & stays injury free, he's gonna blow up like those before him. Kelvin Sheppard & Perry Riley, not THAT highly recruited. Chief coac...
| Outdoor Board|| Where do y'all store your ammo? - banone74 on 1/16/13 at 2:09 pm|
Somebody at work today said not to keep ammo in the safe. He said if there's a fire & enough heat builds up, they could explode & destroy the contents of safe. Any truth to that? My safe is fire rated for an hour I think. And if not there, the garage, closet? TIA :cheers:...
| Outdoor Board|| I just bought the last Bushmaster at Sportsman's Warehouse, for no good reason - banone74 on 12/31/12 at 10:08 am|
When I pulled up there was a line of about 25 dudes outside. I figure no big deal bc these tards are freezing their butt off for ARs & all I want is a 870 20G. So the doors open & it's Black Friday, I mean a dash to the gun counter. There is no sense of order, dudes just hollering out "AR, AR" :rot...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Lewis Neal has more pass-rush moves than any DE on LSU's roster - banone74 on 12/17/12 at 4:52 pm|
I rarely watch recruits film but I did for Neal and wow! In the first minute I saw a bull rush, spin move, dipping of shoulder & ripping thru OT, swim move, & speed rush. I am a little dissapointed in the lack of technique by the M&M boys. They've been here too long to not develop those moves. I'm ...
| Tiger Rant|| Trai Turner matches up with Jesse Williams MUCH better than Williford - banone74 on 10/15/12 at 9:36 am|
Turner & Williams are both round 6'2 325, very strong with low center of gravity. Josh W is listed at 6'7 and just can't get low enough to root a stout NT/DT out of the hole. Turner on the other hand seems capable. Not once have I seen Josh W, in all of his snaps, explode off the line, drive, & kee...
| Tiger Rant|| What's the point of hurrying & quick snapping on 3rd & 2? - banone74 on 10/8/12 at 9:39 am|
The answer is to catch the D unprepared & possibly lined up wrong. But here is where Miles fails big time & just doesn't get it. This offense is not capable, at this point, to execute such. A first year QB who is struggling w/certain aspects/command of the O combined w/a retooled O-line spells troub...

Should be an interesting match-up. I've seen a little of Robinsin in action this year & IMO looked pretty good. During the summer I was sure he would get abused on the edge against us, and he might, but dude looks to be a player. Will be a game within the game to keep an eye on. :geauxtigers:...
| Tiger Rant|| It's nothing but stupid to keep starters in late of a blowout game!! - banone74 on 9/10/12 at 1:27 pm|
And this is not prompted by Mingo in walking boot. Why was 68 in the game late? To learn a new position, gain chemistry w/L'aell? Both of those should be secondary to keeping him healthy. How screwed are we if Josh goes down? Hurst w/bum ankle in late, why? Let me guess ranter answer, to get in...
| Tiger Rant|| All this exterior work to Tiger Stadium is nice & all, but the bathrooms suck!!! - banone74 on 8/24/12 at 10:27 am|
For the life of me, I can't figure out why the bathroom situation in the lower bowl hasn't been addressed. The lines for the men's room are insane. There are basically 2 times to piss, before and after the game. Anytime else and you are waiting a looooong time. How hard is it to remedy, seriously?...
| Tiger Rant|| Anybody else rooting for Chris Davenport? - banone74 on 8/23/12 at 1:19 pm|
He came in as a highly touted 5-star DT & for whatever reason it didn't work out there. After being asked a few times, he sawlloed his pride & switched to OL. I've seen a little practice video of him & he looks better suited at OL & actually looks like a legit lineman. Some kids would've just faded ...

I've got the ole Christmas tree plus some limbs/brush I want to sink. Yall use cable, rope, nylon? Does it even matter? I also need to incorporate some decent weight as I am on the TN river & there's a decent to kick arse flow. I've been putting this off too long. In the mornings when I'm leaving ...
| Tiger Rant|| Any concern over Lonergan's injury history and/or his back-up? - banone74 on 3/2/12 at 4:15 pm|
Say what u will about T-Bob, but he was a reliable reserve at a difficult position. Whoever it is (Porter or the walk-on) needs reps w/the ones in a bad way. But then again, PJ & Mett need reps also. Hopefully it's all moot bc PJ will play every snap. ...
| Tiger Rant|| If you want the 5 best OL out there, does Williford make the cut? - banone74 on 2/3/12 at 12:00 pm|
Don't want to bang on Will too hard, he has filled
in nicely I guess. He seems to end up on ground
often after contact, rarely see him on second
level. IMHO, the 5 should be:
RT E Washington
I have no reason to put Wash at RT other than I
liked him as a ...

So the ACL tear was early in his SR season,
but I assume he didn't come back late in year
right? Any news on his rehab? And, does he
need a year to get that knee stronger, hate to

| Tiger Rant|| I feel bad for RR, his other college choices were OU & Bama - banone74 on 1/12/12 at 7:45 pm|
At OU, he would've played in a big time offense &
likely have sick numbers. At Bama, he would've
replaced Julio as the big go to receiver, have 2
MNCs, go pro this yr & go early1st rd. At LSU, he
was completely wasted. Good luck to ya RR
whatever you do, the first half of this year sure
