Looking to acquire two sacks on the West Coast. Anyone have any previous good/bad experiences?...
| Coaching Changes|| Jim Leavitt... - Tigercat on 11/22/12 at 10:26 am|
One day soon a college team is going to hire him and get a damn good coach. If you hire him plus a recruiting guru (Orgeron may be available soon?) you have the beginnings of a staff that is VERY SEC worthy.
Luckily, I think Arkansas and Tenn are more worried about dropping big names in the hat ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Announcing pet peeve: "Missed tackles" - Tigercat on 8/17/12 at 7:18 pm|
Am I the only one that gets upset when any announcer (not just during a Saints/LSU game) calls a blocked defender putting one hand on the ball carrier, and sometimes not even one hand, and not making a tackle a "missed tackle" ?
Defenders in most blocked situations don't have the chance to make a...
| Food and Drink Board|| Best NO crawfish dishes/best vegetarian restaurants - Tigercat on 3/28/12 at 3:31 pm|
So I have a friend of mine coming in town who is a vegetarian, but her one meat indulgence is crawfish. She's been to NO many times before, but has been away for 6-8 years now. Looking for good dishes anywhere that feature crawfish, and any restaurants that really cater to vegetarians. I know the...
| Tiger Rant|| Honey Badger first Sophomore(edit) defensive player as a Heisman finalist? - Tigercat on 12/5/11 at 5:41 pm|
I can't recall any others, hard to believe there was another unless I am missing someone obvious. Even if there was a junior out there, even harder to believe he wouldn't be the first underclassman.
Edit: Woodson was a Junior, like Honey Badger he made plays as a freshman and soph, so easy to fo...

[quote]Jarvis Jones: "Everybody praises LSU's defense ... But I think our defense is just as good as theirs if not better."[/quote]
[quote]Georgia safety Shawn Williams not shy when comparing his team's defense to LSU's: “I really do think we’re better than they are."[/quote]
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Ran into Orgeron at the NO airport today - Tigercat on 12/10/10 at 8:45 pm|
Didn't present myself as a LSU alum/fan or any of that, just said hi and asked if he was on the road recruiting. "Yea, recruiting some good Louisiana boys. Hoping to get LSU upset by stealing a few of them!" He said it in a fairly good natured way, but funny how he mentioned LSU with no solicitat...
| Food and Drink Board|| Inform restaurant about special occasion? - Tigercat on 11/30/10 at 11:55 am|
Fairly inconsequential question here... Taking someone out on their their birthday to a fairly upscale place. If the restaurant calls back to confirm the reservation, should I mention that it is their birthday on the off chance (they are a smaller intimate place than others) they might have someth...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| A quick thought on perceived physical limitations of recruits - Tigercat on 9/20/10 at 6:41 am|
I see fans/experts talk about guys like Rivers, who many are sure has a sub par arm even though he can't show it off, and I am reminded of Dez Bryant. Yea, stick with me here.
Revisionist history says Bryant couldn't get the big offers and attention early and often solely because of his grades. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Lost in the ending, the team was ready for Bibona - Tigercat on 6/4/10 at 8:57 pm|
You can credit coaching for preparing them, or just the players for executing, but either way there was some sick contact on some good pitches early in the game. The Gibbs HR was an out of the Zone pitch that should have been an easy swing and miss if Gibbs didn't know it was coming. That definite...
| Tiger Rant|| 3rd and Chavis as something that cost LSU = Myth - Tigercat on 1/7/10 at 12:06 pm|
Went through all the 3rd downs for LSU's losses. Didn't count 1st downs achieved through penalty yardage or those plays that were de-done by penalty yardage. So is 3rd and Chavis on 3rd and long something that cost us games? Absolutely not.
Florida game, overall 5 of 12 on 3rd downs. 4 of 8 on...
| Tiger Rant|| South Carolina was winless in 99, but a good team in 2000 - Tigercat on 9/6/09 at 5:54 pm|
1-10 in 98 and 0-11 in 1999 as a major conference team to 8-4 Outback Bowl winners in 2000. Any team that would have traveled halfway across the country to win in Columbia that year would have done something positive, even with the Cocks record in 1999.
I am not saying Washington will be like th...
| Food and Drink Board|| Oak Grove vs Zatarain's - Tigercat on 8/12/09 at 7:07 pm|
Yes, I use mixes during the week, and usually further doctor them up. I enjoy instant-esque jambalaya from time to time when I don't have much time to cook.
I normally use Zatarain's, not out of any loyalty, just because it is the best one I have tried. But after all the Oak Grove love and Zata...
| Political Talk|| National Flood Insurance = US Gov. success in insurance - Tigercat on 7/17/09 at 1:17 am|
But oh no, the Government could never succeed as an option in helping to insure the public. Well I have never heard someone complain about the flood insurance they have purchased. I have heard plenty complain about just about every other insurance program out there.

Were they selling standing room tickets? Want to know what kind of chance I have of getting in tomorrow without tickets in advance....
| Tiger Rant|| Miss St. shot 33% today; it is the officating. - Tigercat on 3/14/09 at 2:15 pm|
For all those that think officiating didn't play a role today.. That is only 2% better than us, they committed one less turnover as well. We outrebounded them by 1 and outshot them from 3 point range.
If you think officiating wasn't the biggest reason why we lost, especially by 10, you weren't p...
| Food and Drink Board|| Any good restaurants near UNO? - Tigercat on 3/2/09 at 5:17 pm|
I didn't get out there much before the storm, and nowadays I really have no idea if there is any place decent up there. Anything worth mentioning? Or should I just hit up someplace good in Metairie on the way for an early meal before the game?...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Remember Nick Saban's public rant over Archie Mcdaniel..? - Tigercat on 2/4/09 at 10:22 pm|
Switching his commitment to Texas AM on signing day? Part of me hates contributing with an Alabama or Saban thread, but I think the hypocrisy of that moment to now should be noted....

Looking to try out the Pelican Club for the first time this month for their holiday tasting menu... But while I had heard almost exclusively good things previously, when I mention the place lately I have heard quite a few negative experiences. (Well maybe not negative so much as a lot of "I wasn't ...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Shep could run a "wildtiger" formation? - Tigercat on 9/27/08 at 12:19 am|
I am surprised by how many assume that Shep possibly not winning a starting QB job in college would mean an inevitable position switch. With the number of athlete at QB formations teams are running today, that seems pretty short sided.
Just because Shep might not win out as a team's main passing...

Has anyone ever thought about doing something about the term? Maybe filtering it out? Or calling out its use a bit? The amount its used today is ridiculous. It doesn't add anything to the discussions on the sports boards, its often just used as a way to kill discussions that the using poster doesn...

Or at least no more so than everyone else.
