* Edited thread title due to people needing their ADD medication
First CFB game of the year on t.v.
Sam Houston State @ Eastern Washington
2 FCS powerhouses and one of our opponents later this season. Sam Houston State lost their coach to Georgia Southern this offseason. No telling how good...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Ben Simmons NOT Selected for the Aussie National Team - thunderbird1100 on 7/27/14 at 6:55 pm|
Wow, kind of a slap in the face to him. Although he is very young, he'd be a starter on that team.
Dante Exum, who is a year older, got chosen.
Simmons said he was very disappointed on twitter....

You might have to actually do a double take on this but Chinea and Robertson are destroying things in Cape Cod this summer. Laid, Stevenson, Hale and Zardon are all doing very very healthy themselves. Unfortunately Fraley is struggling quite a bit. Also, not cape cod related but Bregman is hitting j...

| Tiger Rant|| Anyone take a guess how many home runs have been hit in CWS? - thunderbird1100 on 6/17/14 at 10:30 pm|
Oh hell I'll cut the suspense out now
Over the course of 8 games no home runs have been hit by any of the 8 CWS teams. It's still hard to believe the knee jerk reaction the NCAA had going to these new bats and totally not even thinking about changing the ball until "oh w...

That closer is burned up likely for tomorrow.
McCune likely doesnt pitch again this tournament....
| Tiger Rant|| Watching Bama/FSU @ FSU makes you appreciate our fans - thunderbird1100 on 5/31/14 at 12:42 pm|
FSU in an elimination NCAAT game at home has managed to fill up maybe half their stands on national t.v.
A team with great NCAAT success (sans the championship itself :lol:).
Sometimes fans can will their teams, doesnt look like FSU will get any willing from their fans today....
| Tiger Rant|| Anyone subscribe to Perfect Game? - thunderbird1100 on 5/25/14 at 11:52 pm|
I am thinking of getting the "College Baseball Ticket" subscription for $7.95/month.
My question is how much does this cover the description of it doesnt sound like it shows recruiting classes/rankings really...just shows current college players and whatnot:

| Tiger Rant|| So this team has proven they have what it takes - thunderbird1100 on 5/25/14 at 6:55 pm|
I honestly didnt think this team had what it takes to make it to Omaha but what counts is how you're playing right now and the fact is winning 8 straight blowing everyone out sans the #1 team in the country (but winning the championship doing that) headed into the NCAAT is a great telltale sign of w...

| Tiger Rant|| LSU passes up UGA for all-time draft picks - thunderbird1100 on 5/11/14 at 3:04 pm|
We are now 13th all time in draft picks, fast approaching Florida (only 5 more than us) and Miami (only 7 more than us).
Florida had 4 draft picks this year (5 less than us) and Miami had 3 draft picks this year (6 less than us)

Not sure if anyone watched enough of VA Tech but that's pretty damning of those 3. He was awful (but hey he's tall, big and has a big arm!)...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Kadeem Allen gets JUCO NPOY over Josh Gray - thunderbird1100 on 4/21/14 at 9:21 pm|
Thought Gray would get this with his insane point totals but low and behold they gave it to the #2 guy in scoring in JUCO this past season.

| 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....
