| Tiger Rant|| Who's it gonna be in 2012? - therocketscientist on 6/8/12 at 10:33 am|
Will this year be that we don't have that one player that every one seems to pick on?
I think it might be that year, but a LB seems to be the position that would most likely be that player. But, I think this will turn out to be one of the best LB crews LSU has had, as there is more experience and...

I had a conversation this morning with an Auburn dude, and he thought LSU was a long shot to make it to Omaha. I know, it is an Auburn grad....
Anyhoo, I told him we had about a 60% (just a random number indicating greater than 50-50) to make it based on #7 seeding, home field, experience, pitchi...

No use bitching about this one, as it is completely out of our hands.
As a season ticket holder, I am VERY pleased to have the Florida game on the schedule at home every other year. This means we have either Florida or Bama at home each and every year. With the advent of the TAF/Tradition fees an...

Who the hell is Ralston Turner? I've never seen him on the offensive line depth charts! And I thought I knew all the recruits and players names. Pheewwww. It's a basketball guard.
I guess I am just so focused on football. Is it Sept yet?...

A real offense to go with a real defense and a real special teams - woo hoo!

ATTN SEC foes: LSU has been playing with 2 hands tied behind its back for 4 years, but clearly a new day has arisen.
LSU will now go to a way above average offense with a way above average passing game and 4 or 5 RB's who could start for most if not all teams, and the defense will be about the s...

Anyway, throwing it all together, the number 650 seems like a number to thro...

Has anyone ever seen it. I mean not just saying "cover 2" every once in a while, but really talking x's and o's.

I love this statement. The arm str...

They failed on this one also.
They have nothing on-the-field as evidence, even after looking at this under the microscope, that shows anything outside of the on-the-field rules. All clean and legal hits, even the shamefully over-played media video of Kurt Warner and Brett Fahhhvrey,,,Nothing.

Ok, part of being a Tiger fan is having a favorite player. Mine is Kenny Hilliard at this point in time.
Since the backfield is probably the most talented in all of college football, and since Ware and Ford are now upper classmen, and since Jeremy Hill is possibly a beast that could make it onto ...

[i]Up front assumptions..1)Modern Day College Football is defined as the last 25 years. This is based on incorporation of 99.9% of the athletes being born in the time being considered, and since this would be ~ 23 years old, we'll round up to 25 years. By coincidence, this is probably a good timefra...

I love this turn of events. Now, all of a sudden, OU has to go to TCU and WVU for the 2012 schedule.
The days of OU getting a relatively easy schedule are gone. Same for UT.
In most years, they had to play each other and typically 1 other "strong" team where they might not be out-right favored...

I hear them talking on the radio about what I have been wondering about - the NFL can't think much of JJ calling out a coach who had this back more than any player in the history of sports. That cannot bode well for his consideration.
Maybe he can explain it in the interview and it will not be a ...

It would seem that even Miles now would realize that LSU has developed a reputation as being unfriedly to receivers. 1/9/12 was a punctuation on the period of ineptness for the LSU offense.
Everyone thought it was Crowton. He left. Everyone thought it was JJ/JLee, now they are gone.
