| Tiger Rant|| How much are we missing Russell Reynolds & Hunter Newman this season? - thunderbird1100 on 4/14/14 at 7:54 pm|
Seems like one of those would have been a lock for the rotation this year and given us a pretty good starting rotation and not the current black hole of a 3rd starter we keep trying to find.
Really unfortunate neither could play for us this season....
| Tiger Rant|| Not the season we wanted - thunderbird1100 on 3/24/14 at 9:53 pm|
But we do have a solid corps of players coming back and adding some really good ones. If we can get some much better coaching next season it's definitely a tournament team, just have to teach some DEFENSE....
| SEC Rant|| Big 12 was massively overrated - thunderbird1100 on 3/23/14 at 1:49 pm|
Mizzou should have gotten in
The entire top half of the Big 12 could be out of the tournament before the S16
With 2 of their higher seeds losing to double digit seeds...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Bruce Pearl's recruiting impact on us? - thunderbird1100 on 3/19/14 at 5:06 pm|
Haven't seen this talked about, but does anyone think he could seriously give Johnny Jones a run for his money on some Texas or LA kids? Auburn obviously holds some weight on LA kids with who they've gotten in football, and now with a strong recruiter in basketball, what are the chances they take s...
| Tiger Rant|| Cody Glenn - What's happened? - thunderbird1100 on 3/2/14 at 4:34 pm|
So Glenn has been getting smashed in 2 of his 3 starts so far, which begs the question what's going on there?
This was a guy who last year was pretty dang good, at times inconsistent, but he finished with 2.68 ERA on the season.
Do you give him 1 more chance to hold onto his weekend spot? Or d...
| Tiger Rant|| The team played really hard today, props to them - thunderbird1100 on 2/22/14 at 5:28 pm|
Let's keep in mind we were down 2 guys including 1 at the last second. We had to come in knowing our guards would get gassed tonight playing the entire game basically.
The Rupp refs absolutely sealed this win for UK tonight. We had to get this done in regulation with foul trouble and fatigue yet ...
| SEC Rant|| LSU will bring 2 scholarship guards to UK today - thunderbird1100 on 2/22/14 at 2:35 pm|
We so fricked :lol:...
| Tiger Rant|| Anthony Hickey settling into his role - thunderbird1100 on 2/2/14 at 10:14 am|
I think Hickey has finally realized he doesn't need to be the man anymore but rather create opportunities for our other players.
The last 2 games he has 12 assists to 1 turnover. That's SPECTACULAR numbers for a PG. He's never been a high percentage shooter and this is why he needs numbers like t...
| Tiger Rant|| Trent Johnson - thunderbird1100 on 2/1/14 at 2:44 pm|
TCU just lost to Texas Tech to drop them to 0-8 in the Big XII :lol:
Under Trent Johnson TCU is now 2-25 against the Big XII
Two and Twenty-Five :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:...
| SEC Rant|| SEC will finish bowl season 7-3 - thunderbird1100 on 1/4/14 at 1:45 pm|
Pretty damn good considering how "down" everyone else in the country was saying the SEC is this year.
| Tiger Rant|| G Michael Qualls - formerly of Huntington in Shreveport - thunderbird1100 on 12/26/13 at 11:58 am|
This guy is having a ridiculous season for Arkansas already. He was pretty mediocre last year but check out these numbers as a sophomore already...
45.9% 3pt (17 for 37)
Has a 24.1 Player Efficiency Rating whic...
| Tiger Rant|| What's the latest on Brian Bridgewater? - thunderbird1100 on 12/24/13 at 2:47 pm|
Considering this semester is already over and his case has been in front of the NCAA for several months now I figure they have to be making a decision soon. Is it possible he joins the basketball team to start the new semester?
If a decision still isn't made before this semester you have to think...
| Tiger Rant|| When do you expect us to compete for a National Championship again? - thunderbird1100 on 12/23/13 at 4:38 pm|
I am assuming most people are going to go ahead and write off next year since we will have a green QB and once again more likely unwarranted junior NFL defections.
2015 is a year I feel we should be setup very well to make a run. The top notch 2014 recruiting class will all have a year under thei...
| Tiger Rant|| Quinn Johnson just pancaked a guy on a Shonn Greene TD - thunderbird1100 on 12/8/13 at 4:18 pm|
Just got picked up by the Titans this past Wednesday and is flattening some guys today.
Hope he gets retained long term :bow:...
| SEC Rant|| Anthony Grant - thunderbird1100 on 12/8/13 at 11:54 am|
Thought his time had possibly run out after last season but what's the general consensus around him so far this year? Not exactly the start any were hoping for. It looks like Bama still has at least 2 more sure OOC losses to pile on the 4 already too which means the tournament is a distant dream for...
| Tiger Rant|| Player people seemed to have biggest knee jerk reaction... - thunderbird1100 on 12/5/13 at 11:07 pm|
At the start of the season but didn't turn out as it so looked.
| Tiger Rant|| UMass basketball is now 6-0 - thunderbird1100 on 11/24/13 at 10:45 pm|
With wins over Clemson, Nebraska, Boston College, New Mexico, Youngstown State and us.
We had the closest game with them as well, without arguably our most talented player....
| Tiger Rant|| We are Top 25 in the country in Total Defense - thunderbird1100 on 11/24/13 at 1:21 pm|
#23 to be exact
This defense is obviously not like a typically good Chavis D, but considering our personnel losses from last year, the Chief still can put together a MUCH better than average defense compared to the rest of CFB....
| Tiger Rant|| Trent Johnson is now 11-23 at TCU - thunderbird1100 on 11/17/13 at 6:04 pm|
Started off this season 0-2 with losses to SMU and Longwood.
But hey, he did land a Top 50 recruit for TCU for this season! Remind you of something similar? :lol:...
| Tiger Rant|| Lets talk about Jordan Mickey - thunderbird1100 on 11/17/13 at 4:47 pm|
What are the chances he leads the SEC in blocks per game this season?
Right now he is #1 at 5.5 blocks per game.
#2 is Aaron Jones of Ole Miss at 2.5 blocks per game.
| Tiger Rant|| Dak Prescott - thunderbird1100 on 11/2/13 at 1:44 pm|
I honestly thought he could be a competent QB, and could see why we offered late at the time.
I was wrong, dude is awful, 4 turnovers today...
| Tiger Rant|| Why would you not take the last TO - thunderbird1100 on 10/20/13 at 11:13 am|
When there was still 25 seconds on the clock?
I mean, I guess it's much smarter to just let it run all the way down and give your team no hope if they make the final FG, but hey I guess some chance afterwards (as little as it would have been) is worth nothing.
Clock management struck again. I ...
| Tiger Rant|| Ego and Freak - thunderbird1100 on 10/13/13 at 1:14 pm|
Through half the season (:pimp:), here are their numbers.
Ego - 31 tackles, 2.5 TFL, 1 sack, 3 PBU, 1 QB hurry
Freak - 24 tackles, 5.5 TFL, 2 sacks, 1 QB hurry, 1 INT
Ego on pace for 62 tackles, 5 TFL, 2 sacks
Freak on pace for 48 tackles, 11 TFL, 4 sacks
Pretty huge numbers for DTs :bow...
| Tiger Rant|| UGA loses RB Keith Marshall and WR Justin Scott-Wesley for the season - thunderbird1100 on 10/6/13 at 5:04 pm|
Also, WR Michael Bennett is out next game.
Wow, imagine if we had them this weekend with no Gurley, Marshall or their #2 and #3 WRs.
Still probably give up a bunch because Murray, but quite the different ultimate outcome likely....

| Tiger Rant|| Anyone find it funny now that Delahoussaye is a walk on - thunderbird1100 on 9/29/13 at 1:00 pm|
And Hairston has a scholarship. :lol:
Place kicker who is perfect on the year pays his own way
Kick off guy who we mostly want to just boot it through the end zone has a scholarship
We have a scholarship offer out to another pure kickoff guy too who is committed for next year :...
| Tiger Rant|| Anyone worried about playing @ Mississippi State next weekend? - thunderbird1100 on 9/29/13 at 10:23 am|
'Cause I'm not.
Thank God for Moo State, each and every year :cheers:
| Tiger Rant|| The biggest differences from yesterday are in the box score - thunderbird1100 on 9/29/13 at 8:37 am|
Specifically in defense. We had 2 tackles for loss all game, UGA had 7. We had 0 sacks, and Murray escaped a few pressures. UGA had 4 sacks, and Mettenberger took 2 of those pretty unnecessarily (had more than eno...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Storm Johnson - thunderbird1100 on 9/28/13 at 11:16 am|
This is one I wish worked out for us. Kid is really good for UCF, runs really hard and has some good moves....
| Tiger Rant|| We've turned the ball over 6 times this season - thunderbird1100 on 9/22/13 at 2:17 pm|
1 by downs
Opposing team has scored a TD on 4 of the 6 subsequent drives and a FG on another 1.
Definitely seems like our defense has bouncing back issues after a turnover....
