Biggame against their big in state rival ULM and all they care about on their message board is whether the announcer calls them Louisiana or Rajun Cajuns. Some threaten to quit going to games if not called Louisiana. When someone points out how stupid the name thing is the first reaction is to atta...

How different would it be for Joe McKnight had he played for LSU?
Instead he goes to USC , chasing Hollywood dreams and has less than spectacular career, leaves early for NFL, has decent start, but now cut by the lowly Jets. Throw in a little trouble with the law , a few injuries and it appears his...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| How did Ole Miss pull off 2013 recruits? - kingfish on 2/7/13 at 10:11 am|
From reading about the success of this year's recruiting class for Ole Miss there is an underlying , unspoken wink , wink that all may not have been above board and within the rules. Not that there is any evidence of that, just sayin.
So lets just come out and say it, what did Ole Miss do to sudde...

If there was ever proof of ESPN's hate of LSU , a poll of the top college recruiters that does not include LSU says it all.

For fun I admit I sometimes troll the delusional ULL message board. Pretty funny stuff over there. With 2 New Orleans bowl championships behind them the Tiger hating fan base wants big bucks to be spent on stadium expansion and improvements. Forget they only average less than 20,000 attendance per g...
| Tiger Rant|| More Dan Partick - kingfish on 11/29/12 at 12:41 pm|
He blasted Miles the entire show today for talking to Ar Kansas while being under contract with LSU. Tried to get Troy Aikmen to agree, but Troy just said that is the business or words to that effect.
I love Miles, but really wish he would have handled this thing differently. Like telling ArKansas ...

I like to go home at lunch and watch Dan Patrick, but have to record and fast forward as I can't stand the narcissistic, juvenile danettes. I don't find Fritzy funny and McLovin is the biggest jerk/nerd I have ever seen/heard.
Too bad, because Dan is really good at interviews and I generally like ...

| Tiger Rant|| A&M can teach us something - kingfish on 10/29/12 at 2:15 pm|
One thing I learned at the AM game is that the fans never boo.
They don't boo the opposing team and they certainly don't boo their own team (referees are fair game)
For this Bama game can we all agree we will not boo our team or our coaches, nomatter what happens?
That is all....

| Political Talk|| Vitter vs Jindal - kingfish on 4/16/12 at 11:16 am|
Looks like Viter likes to take a shot at Jindal at every opportunity. Now it is about legacy lawsuits. Before that it was using one time money to fund ongoing expenses.
Looks to me like Jindal wants to be in Washington and Vitter wants to be in Baton Rouge. It does make La. Politics interesting .
| Political Talk|| Jindal exempts from state employee retirement - kingfish on 4/4/12 at 6:48 pm|
Just like a Congressman, Jindal exempts himself and other statewide officials from the proposed employee contribution to the state employee retirement system. Enough of this special treatment.

It is beyond belief that the best coach in LSU history has to face public criticism on what player he chooses to play. I love my LSU Tigers but the fan base no doubt contains a bunch of idiots.

I've been to a lot of road games and four at Bama. The Alabama fans at this game treated us with respect and friendly rivalry.

Is there anything Billy Nungesser won't do in order to win this election? This week the Mayor of Grand Isle invited a number of fellow Mayors for breakfast to hear Nungesser speak.
