I normally don't give a shite about our opponents, but ... I feel sorry for, you. Not so much that I'd want to win the game, but ... well, you schooled us–assuming that is, that Miles can learn a lesson from this game. That's a big if.
Tough loss, fellas....
| Music Board|| Lee Dorman: Inna-Gonna-Da-Vida - Tigerwaffe on 12/22/12 at 7:07 am|
Iron Butterfly bass player found dead in L.A. at age 70. I remember seeing the I-G-D-V lineup at the Swing Auditorium in San Berdoo in 1969. I always thought Dorman was underrated or maybe just overlooked as an excellent bass guitarist because IB was slagged a lot by the press even in their heyday. ...
| SEC Rant|| Belated congrats to Ole Miss - Tigerwaffe on 11/17/12 at 8:29 pm|
I missed the 4th quarter of the game; had to take my kid to a sleepover. When I left the score was 28-20 Ole Miss. I just got back so I don't know how we ended up winning. But:
• The first 3 quarters of the game Ole Miss gave LSU its worst thrashing in the Les Miles era. As I wrote in another post ...

From today's Advocate:
“They had a tremendously talented offensive line,” said A&M defensive end Damontre Moore, who leads the Southeastern Conference with 91/2 sacks (including one Saturday). "This was probably the most talented offensive line we’ve played all year. They were talented athletically...

| Music Board|| Another guitar search: Your suggestions? - Tigerwaffe on 7/29/12 at 4:04 pm|
I've got about $1,000 to spend and I'd like to pick up a 6-string acoustic-electric. I have a Taylor 110e which I like quite a bit, but I'm reading that some other guitars—certain Martin models for example—offer a deeper sound than Taylors, and are well-suited for strumming (which is how I play for ...
| O-T Lounge|| "dominatrixes deemed him too creepy for "swingers parties" - Tigerwaffe on 7/14/12 at 5:49 am|
Here's an interesting article about an L.A. S/M club employee who murdered his boss. The reason: he was forbidden to be a house slave at the club's swingers parties because employees and customers considered him to be too creepy.
This is a must read for those of you who either patronize or work a...

| Tiger Rant|| Thank you Tiger o-line - Tigerwaffe on 11/26/11 at 8:22 am|
Aside from a false start or two, you dudes played magnificently—scary good in the second half. You guys are the unsung heroes, but as yesterday's game shows, you're the engine that powers our offense. You guys are tons of fun to watch; I hope you rip the guts out of Georgia next week.
| Tiger Rant|| Bama has the better team - Tigerwaffe on 11/6/11 at 9:51 am|
I'm not getting this. After all, we:
• Played in their house
• Played against the Heisman trophy winner
• Played against the "best defense" in college football
• Played against the "best coach" in college football
... and we won. With all those overwhelming advantages, and still losing fair a...

I bought a Taylor 210 acoustic-electric yesterday. At $800, it's the cheapest guitar I've ever owned, but I wanted to see if a low-end Taylor is as good as I've heard in write ups and reviews. You guitarists out there: what are you playing? What would you like to own and be play?...

"I'll remember Jordan as Mister Prove It,'' [Patrick] Peterson said. "I'll remember him as the best kind of teammate anyone would want.''

| Tiger Rant|| Down to the wire: Can any team top ours? - Tigerwaffe on 10/10/10 at 4:16 pm|
Since the start of last season alone, I count 8 games (Miss St., UGA, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Penn St, North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida) that have been decided in the last minute, on the last play and even after time has expired. That's 8 of our last 18 games, almost half. I can't think of another ...

Congrats to the Men of the Tiger D for holding WVU to 177 total yards, and their top two RBs to 49 yards on 21 carries. Devine had me scared before the game, but the real scary thing was how well our boys shut him down.

They should put together a reel of JJ's best passes—like the Randle TD pass v. UNC and the passes to Randle and Toliver last night—and make JJ and the WRs watch them over and over and over. If for no other reason than to drill it into everyone's head: We CAN do this. Sort of a self-actualization thi...

Any predictions on how our QBs and o-line will rank in the SEC at the end of the '10 season? To go 10-2 or better, I figure our QBs and/or o-line will have to rank among the top 3 in the SEC at the very least (that's just my guesstimate). So what do you think?...

Seems like a lot of posters don't think so. I thought he played well in a number of games:
Washington: 11-of-19/172 yds/3 TD/0 Int
Miss St 15-of-28/233 yds/2 TD/0 Int
UGA 18-of-27/212 yds/0 TD/1 Int

At the outset of the tourney, I decided to assure a Tiger championship through a fail safe method: betting against the Tigers.

In 2009 we finished 11th in the SEC in rushing with 123 yards a game, 3.7 YPC. I figure we'll do better in 2010 (we have almost nowhere to go but up), but I'm not confident we'll finish in the upper half of the conference. Shep should help spike the numbers, but Ridley and Murphy are still question ...
