| Tiger Rant|| Is LSU football becoming turning into Kentucky basketball? - Purple and Geaux on 1/6/14 at 6:45 am|
With all of the early departures into the NFL Draft, it seems to me that LSU football is turning into Kentucky basketball in that players come and enter the draft early.
Coach Calipari has always said that it is an advantage in recruiting for his program when players get picked up in the draft....

LSU is underrated in this, but at least we are starting to talk about Regionals. LSU is predicted as hosting the Baton Rouge Regional with a possible Super Regional matchup with Texas A&M. Aggies are the #3 national seed.

| Tiger Rant|| Why does someone in the AP still vote Boise St. #1? - Purple and Geaux on 11/6/11 at 3:55 pm|
This may have been explained before, but Boise St. won at Georgia and they are a top 20 team, but LSU beat 2 top 6 teams on the road and this AP voter wants to vote Boise State #1 over LSU?
I'm not trying to be greedy for votes but I don't see how Boise has proven that they should be #1 over LS...

| Tiger Rant|| ABC saying OU deserves #1 now? - Purple and Geaux on 10/9/11 at 12:53 am|
During the LSU-West Virginia game, Bret and Kirk as well as a couple of ESPN articles were saying that LSU deserves the #1 ranking because they beat 3 ranked teams on the road while Oklahoma just beat 1. I remember Kirk saying "You gotta look at the body of work and LSU has had a much tougher road ...

| Tiger Rant|| What LSU QB had to deal with the most negativity? - Purple and Geaux on 7/23/11 at 10:54 am|
Jordan Jefferson, Jarret Lee or Jamie Howard?
The negative attention Jefferson gets is still going on, and most have forgiven Lee for his RS Freshman year, but Jamie Howard had to deal with death threats after the '94 Auburn game after throwing all of those pick 6's.
These days, LSU footba...
| Tiger Rant|| WHEN LSU makes it to the SEC Tourney - Purple and Geaux on 5/14/11 at 11:29 pm|
Hear me out here. Let's just say that LSU makes it in as a #7 seed (it isn't out of the picture). They would be in the same bracket with #2 SEC West winner, (let's say Auburn) and #3 (let's say Florida) and #6 (let's say Arkansas).
LSU had chances to win in both the Friday and Saturday games ...

| Tiger Rant|| Is Tim Brando calling SEC refs racist? - Purple and Geaux on 10/4/09 at 1:06 am|
He was saying that the refs call the celebration penalty too early and that penalty should go away. Most would agree with that.
Then, he says that the SEC calls celebration penalties more than any other leage in ...

| Tiger Rant|| What would you say to Austin Wood if you saw him last night? - Purple and Geaux on 6/27/09 at 11:00 pm|
I was at a Texas Rangers game on Friday and I saw Austin Wood and a UT buddy of his hanging out. It was definitely Wood.
I was wearing my LSU basebal hat and I thought about all of the bad comments that Texas fans had about LSU fans, and how classless we are, so I decided to take the high road...

I grew up in Virginia Beach and my brother is good friends with one of the football coaches for another team in Virginia Beach.

The Vanderbilt/South Carolina game won't even start until at least 9:15 because UGA-Arky are in a tie ball game going to the bottom of the 9th.

Ok, I see this complaint is on the Rant at least once a week about the LSU logo of Toonces or the traditional one that remains on the football helmets. I want to get to the bottom of this, so let’s put it to a vote. If someone could help me with tallying up the results, that would be great.

It is less than 2 days from #11 Ole Miss coming to town and it seems like no one is talking about them. Harvard has way more threads than the Rebels do. If I remember right, Ole Miss was one of the last series we lost last year before that amazing 20-something win streak.
