| Tiger Rant|| Kudos to our Special Teams - another solid year! - TigerStuckinOkieland on 11/29/09 at 5:27 pm|
As undisciplined and disorganized as LSU's coaching appears to be at times, especially in the past 2 years, our Special Teams continue to shine.
Good job in getting Helton and Jasper on board to replace Colt David and Fisher - we take our kickers for granted - we've been fortunate to have solid k...
| Tiger Rant|| Final Key Comments from Hitt - Let's get the whole truth! - TigerStuckinOkieland on 11/24/09 at 10:50 am|
LSU did only rush for 40 yards on 27 carries in the game.
"I question plays, but at some point you've got to let go and just do your job," Hitt said. "As much as I wish the coaches had more confidence in the run, I can understand why they don't."
| Tiger Rant|| Positives from Last Weekend's Screw-Up - TigerStuckinOkieland on 11/24/09 at 10:29 am|
1. The National spotlight is directly on Miles and the media will be less critical of LSU and its administrators for making a HC change if Miles is given 1 more year to "fix things", and if the results aren't positive. We will have a very difficult time hiring a great coach at LSU if the perceptio...
| Tiger Rant|| Simple question - have the players given up on Miles? - TigerStuckinOkieland on 11/23/09 at 7:49 pm|
I damn sure hope not! As much as a supportive fanbase can help a head coach and a football program, it's ultimately the players who determine whether they're motivated to keep playing hard the rest of this year and thru a bowl game -or- chalk it up for the year and get ready for Santa Claus.

.....especially on the college level.
If Steinbrenner's NY Yankees aren't a good example of that, then what is? Sure, they won the World Series this year, but how long of a drought did they go thru with constant 2nd place finishes against their main rivals for many, many years - in spite of thei...
| Tiger Rant|| INT Correct Call - Strong Possible Outcome - TigerStuckinOkieland on 11/10/09 at 5:52 pm|
For those who want to totally discount the fact that LSU still loses the game (i.e. Dukke, the hard-headed idiot)and others, I submit the following scenario - granting, of course, the possibility that Bama's Defense continued to play LSU tough in the remaining 5+ minutes after the INT.
1) LSU get...
| Tiger Rant|| What's the mood this week for our Tigers? - TigerStuckinOkieland on 11/6/09 at 1:21 pm|
Haven't read much other than a bit of "coach speak" from Miles.
I was wondering if anyone on the Rant has some inside info as to how well the team practiced this week, whether working more on fundamentals, opening up the playbook, etc.
I know I won't get anything too specific, but curious as t...
| Tiger Rant|| Self-Criticism is Healthy, but can skew reality - TigerStuckinOkieland on 10/4/09 at 8:13 pm|
I like what Carl Dubois had to say about "questioning inwardly at ourselves and wondering whether we could've done better, and coming up with no response"....... and, it got me thinking.....
I've watched several football teams play this first month of the college season, and several looked to be ...
| Tiger Rant|| Kudos to JJ for that rifle throw over the middle on 3rd down - TigerStuckinOkieland on 10/3/09 at 10:11 pm|
3rd and long, and I thought we might be "done for", and the guy throws an absolute rifle shot 25+ yds for the 1st down. My daughter's boyfriend, who is an OU/Bradford homer, was watching the game, and when he saw that throw, he looked at me and said "WOW"!.....as did I!! That's got to be one the b...
| Tiger Rant|| Anybody think Scott's lost his Touch now? - TigerStuckinOkieland on 10/3/09 at 10:01 pm|
Absolutely fitting end to this game was Sir Charles' great breakaway run for a TD - took some of the salt out the wound of watching replays of Moreno burning us last year at Tiger Stadium.
Great Game, Charles!!...
| Tiger Rant|| Two Bad Coaching Decisions Today - TigerStuckinOkieland on 10/3/09 at 9:17 pm|
1) Clock Management at end of 2nd Quarter
2) Piss Poor formation for 4th and inches play
Other than that, I think the coaches called a pretty good game all around. Yes, we sucked inside the red zone, and I screamed thru the TV a dozen times in the 1st half because of our ineptness in scoring. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Notice to LSU Players & Coaches - The Heat is Off - TigerStuckinOkieland on 9/28/09 at 2:28 pm|
The heat is off because the best prediction I've heard or read for the final Tiger Win-Loss record comes from the great state of OkieLand; this morning, the Sports Animal "experts" in OKC who saw the MSU game, agreed LSU looked bad, but were willing to bet LSU would lose "only" 3 games down the stre...
| Tiger Rant|| Spread = Wide Open Offense?? - TigerStuckinOkieland on 9/17/09 at 9:48 am|
I am probably going to get hammered for bringing this up, but I'll go on record as saying I prefer a more "pro-style" offense like we ran pre-Crowton days. Running out of the I-formation is the best way to play "smash-mouth" football, which historically has been our forte'. Certainly, a dominant O...
| Tiger Rant|| Personal Observation - Taking a Cue from UH Offense - TigerStuckinOkieland on 9/13/09 at 11:36 am|
It appeared to me last nite during the 1st half that LSU's option formation worked very well, especially early, when we had a split-out sprinting back across the line in motion, thus creating a bit more confusion for Vandy's defense....somewhat similar to what Houston ran yesterday very effectively ...
| Tiger Rant|| Kudos to Murphy, RJ Jackson, & Brooks - TigerStuckinOkieland on 9/12/09 at 10:28 pm|
All three played with a lot of fire and performed well when given the chance. Great catch by Jackson - was probably one of the top 3 plays of the game.....Brooks was a madman on the special teams - great to see some other guys get a shot, especially those who've been there for more than a year or s...
| Tiger Rant|| Scott's Lack of Production is not his fault - TigerStuckinOkieland on 9/12/09 at 10:00 pm|
He's a power runner whose best success is running out of the I formation. This year he has inconsistent inside blocking, an inexperienced fullback, and he's getting the ball with no headstart.
Therefore, Miles is doing the right thing by going more to KW this year - it will require mo...

| Tiger Rant|| Horns or Sooners - Which fans annoy you the most? - TigerStuckinOkieland on 6/23/09 at 4:59 pm|
My vote is still the Sooners - by far. Main reason is that the Sooners rely heavily every year on Texas players, yet despise anything Texan. Plus, I've still had to listen to the poor losers of the 2004 NC game talk about how much they hated their trip to N.O. - rudely treated by LSU fans and LA c...
