| Tiger Rant|| Leadership, and how most of you know nothing about it. - tenacious on 1/12/12 at 12:54 pm|
I am the leader of an organization, and I've learned a lot in this role that makes me more forgiving of coach Miles than many of you seem to be. Here are a few facts about leadership that I'd like for some of you to consider before you continue to pile on coach Miles:
1. Leaders care more about ...
| Tiger Rant|| This team reminds me of Florida in 1995 - tenacious on 1/10/12 at 6:48 pm|
Undefeated SEC Champs, on top of their game, and a ton of swagger. Then they went to the title game and got absolutely embarrassed by Nebraska, 62-24. Tommy Frazier ran all over them, and all that swagger went down the drain.
The next year (1996) they won the SEC again and destroyed #1Fla St, 52...

| Tiger Rant|| What do we call this game? - tenacious on 10/26/11 at 8:12 am|
I saw in one article that they called it "Armageddon in Alabama". That's ok, but I'm sure the rant can do better. I was thinking "National Championship Game 1". ...
| Tiger Rant|| Name one other team who could do this - tenacious on 10/20/11 at 8:38 am|
Can you think of another program that could lose a Heisman hopeful, their leading rusher, and one of their best db's and still be expected to beat a top 20 opponent? The cupboard is full, people. The coaching staff has done a fantastic job of recruiting. Despite these off-field issues, it's a great...

Africa - Some think they look alike, act alike and share the same notorious fearlessness, but not all are happy with the comparisons. I am, of course, speaking of Africa's Honey Badger and LSU Football's Tyrann Mathieu. Despite their obvious similarities - a blonde mane, the ability to not give a sh...
| Tiger Rant|| Can't believe how many tackles we missed - tenacious on 9/26/11 at 8:36 am|
Mo Claiborne swung the momentum back to LSU on that fantastic return, but he missed a ton of tackles in the game. For a guy who everyone says is faster than PP7, he sure can't tackle anything like Peterson. PP7 wrapped people up, and if they did complete a pass on him, he clamped down on the WR and ...
| Tiger Rant|| Here's this Team's weakness... - tenacious on 9/19/11 at 9:09 am|
Like nearly every team we've fielded over the past 7 seasons, this LSU team lacks the ability to separate from their opponent. They did it against Oregon, but O turned the ball over several times. If teams don't turn the ball over, our offense isn't designed to score points quickly and create early ...

Miles has compiled one of the most impressive records in college football in his time at LSU. He is 62-17 as the LSU coach in 6 years, compared to Michigan's record of 42-33 during the same period. Miles has won 23 games over foes ranked among the nation's top 25, and has five-straight recruiting ...
| Tiger Rant|| Stealing Auburn's Thunder? - tenacious on 1/11/11 at 3:01 pm|
I love it that the day after Auburn's big night, Les Miles is stealing the headlines for staying at LSU. Don't get me wrong... I'd rather have a nc, but it's good to see the sports news lead off with Miles staying at LSU!...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU hates ESPN - tenacious on 1/11/11 at 1:09 pm|
People on this board are fond of saying that ESPN hates LSU, but I think it's time we flipped that around. The Worldwide Leader in Sports now has egg on its face for the 2nd time when reporting "major" LSU news. Personally, I love it!

| Tiger Rant|| The Reaper will claim another soul this weekend - tenacious on 10/21/10 at 5:40 pm|
Auburn's Gene Chizick has a tough soul. Remember when an Auburn fan shouted at him to go home while he was still on the tarmac before he was even announced as the Auburn coach? Man, if that moment didn't steal your soul, what possibly could?
Well, I'm glad you asked. There is a simple answer. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Les doesn't just want to win... - tenacious on 10/14/10 at 12:09 pm|
I have a theory about Les Miles. I don't think he just wants to win. I think he wants to steal souls. If you've watched opposing coaches at their post game press conferences after playing LSU, it's clear that they are only shells of their pre-game selves.
Urban Meyer looked sullen and lifele...

I know PP was penalized for that little Heisman pose Saturday night, but it was pure genius. He has single handedly thrust LSU into the national spotlight. Before his statuesque stance, no one was talking about LSU, but now the Tigers are the talk of the national media, and Peterson is front and cen...

VA Tech in '07. That was the last truly complete and dominating performance by an LSU team in a regular season game. I am pumped to get back to Death Valley!
Here's why going to an LSU football game matters so much to me:

| Tiger Rant|| Drop Coverage - tenacious on 9/7/10 at 8:55 am|
I kept wondering during Saturday's game why our defense wasn't dropping DE's into coverage to take away some of the short slants that UNC was converting at will. Marcus Spears used to drop into coverage quite a bit and picked off several passes. I remember him doing that in the NC game against OU....

...with running the ball to the short side of the field? I re-watched the MIss. St. game, and LSU hardly ever runs wide, but it seems like every time they do, they go to the short side of the field. I can see doing it every once in a while to keep the defense honest, but I can't for the life of me...

I was watching last year's LSU vs Auburn game, and LSU went 89 yards in 1:26 at the end of the 3rd quarter to take the lead, 17-14. It all started with an interception by Chris Hawkins on an Auburn 4th and 1. LSU gets the ball at the 11 yard line, and goes on an incredible drive:
