| SEC Rant|| Changing the current playoff ranking process-2 proposals - White Tiger on 12/7/14 at 7:43 pm|
It appears that the playoff committee's directive is to maximize CFB revenue rather than pick the teams that, through their performance in a given year, have merited playoff berths.
I propose two method that I think are clearly better, more just and, in one case, adds a broad based appeal with hi...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Franks from Fl has 9 SEC offers and has committed to LSU - White Tiger on 11/29/14 at 9:44 pm|
Does anyone have any idea how good the kid is? How much of recruiting is a crap shoot. If he is any where near as good has the interest in him suggests, maybe LSU can win the SEC in a few years....
| Tiger Rant|| Congratulations to the Staff for making some adjustments on offense - White Tiger on 11/28/14 at 7:26 pm|
for this game. The option worked very well, but one wonders what happened to AJ's "dual threat" capabilities during the 'Bama and Arky games. For example, why did he not run on 4th and 10 instead of throwing into double coverage. MSU for that matter as well, but never mind.
I still see no reas...
| Tiger Rant|| So, who is more likely to play on Thanksgiving? - White Tiger on 11/21/14 at 8:46 pm|
Brandon or Luke?
| More Sports Board|| How is ND ranked #10? - White Tiger on 11/1/14 at 10:16 pm|
They are not exactly killing Navy. The ranking system is a joke. Is there any site that continues to have the old BCS rankings for comparison's sake? Would like to see how it compares to the "unbiased" committee....
| Tiger Rant|| I'll say it. I do not think UGA beat Auburn without - White Tiger on 11/1/14 at 9:41 pm|
Gurley. They looked like road kill against UF. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Nick Saban v Les Miles - White Tiger on 10/31/14 at 9:20 am|
This has to do with demeanor and public persona. One has to credit Miles with having a much more positive bearing and likability. He almost always appears to be happy, even when serious. He looks at people and the camera when addressing them. He seems to have a good time coaching and I think his...
| Tiger Rant|| For you statisticians on the Rant - White Tiger on 10/26/14 at 5:05 pm|
Maybe the upside of all the miscues committed by the Tigers is good inasmuch as they made enough in last night's game to account for the rest of the season. Look for flawless or near flawless play going forward.

enough. Go ahead. Flame away, ranteros.
| Tiger Rant|| Is Bo Wallace a pouter? - White Tiger on 10/25/14 at 11:13 pm|
Leaving the field before the game is over. What does the RANT think of that?
| Tiger Rant|| Has LSU football improved under CLM? - White Tiger on 10/5/14 at 7:55 pm|
Serious question. When Saban left, the expectations for continued success was very high. LSU has realized "success" unlike anything else in its long history. I believe that CLM has 2 SEC titles to his credit and one NC. His teams have put a lot of players in the NFL. These are without question ...
| Tiger Rant|| I think the game hinges mostly on the O-line - White Tiger on 9/19/14 at 6:28 pm|
The offense has got to score early hopefully to alter MSU's game plane. Should LSU come out with passing to try to expose a weak Bulldog secondary or, per usual, run off tackle. I think the latter has a good chance of getting stuffed initially and maybe all night unless the O can get the ball down...
| SEC Rant|| Do games like LSU-SHSU et al hurt CFB? - White Tiger on 9/7/14 at 6:25 pm|
I think this is plausible. The games are in no way competitive and everyone understands this, but has no problem with it. Is not one of the NCAA directives to promote fair competition.
Our purpose is to govern competition in a fair, safe, equitable and sportsmanl...
| Tiger Rant|| Is it just my perspective or do teams like USC, Stanford and Oregon - White Tiger on 9/7/14 at 4:32 pm|
Look much more polished than does LSU? The PAC 10 looks really strong....
| SEC Rant|| The political economics of college athletics - White Tiger on 9/4/14 at 9:59 pm|
This is a compelling article about the oligarchy of the NCAA. It made nearly 1B USD last year 84% of which came from March Madness. (That actually surprised me). While I am a fan of college athletics, I think the time that the money made from it be distributed to the athletes who make it possible ...
| Tiger Rant|| Will CLM really give Harris a substantial number of snaps - White Tiger on 9/4/14 at 2:49 pm|
against SHSU? I wonder. He has always been "reluctant" to play back up QB even with the game completely out of hand. Do not recall that he has ever explained this e.g. Mettenberger, J. Lee etc.
| SEC Rant|| TAMU is my new #1 team after week 1. - White Tiger on 9/2/14 at 12:37 pm|
They look to have another great offense and very good QB- are you paying attention CLM?
The defense looks solid as well. I think they are the team to beat in the SEC West. UGA in the East....
| Tiger Rant|| O line is now the main concern - White Tiger on 9/1/14 at 9:43 pm|
imho. They got little to no movement early on and had many blown assignments. This year will go as the O line goes. I think AJ looked much better by the end of the game.
Also, lack of a credible pass rush is another serious problem....
| Tiger Rant|| What advantage, if any, is having rotating QBs - White Tiger on 8/26/14 at 8:12 pm|
I can think of no advantage for the offense. Does it not make it more predictable based on the skill set of the signal caller? How can it keep the opposing defense off balance? It just makes no sense to me.
My take is that CLM does not like what he sees in Jennings passing ability. I cannot b...
| Tiger Rant|| New perspective on CLM and Jarrett Lee - White Tiger on 1/4/14 at 5:52 pm|
We likely will never know the story, but this seems plausible.
JL did or said something "detrimental to the team" prior to the BCSNCG. It matters not what happened, rather that CLM wanted to keep it within the circle of trust. He decided to suspend JL for the game, but would take the heat for n...
