| Tiger Rant|| Permanent Opponents - Simple Solution - Tiger Phil on 12/26/12 at 4:31 pm|
The SEC should come to a compromise solution. Basically, the schools that want permanent opponents can keep them, while the schools that do not want permanent opponents can not have them.
If we assume that Alabama/Tennessee and Auburn/Georgia are the ones that want to to keep, then we could sche...
| Tiger Rant|| Any Referees? Question about "Forward Progress" - Tiger Phil on 11/24/12 at 9:10 am|
I have a genuine question about the application of the principle of "forward progress" yesterday in two cases. I would love for someone who has been trained and works as a referee to offer an opinion. There must be a couple on here.
1) The biggest one is the fumble. Seems that the ball was st...
| Tiger Rant|| A&M rout of Miss St bodes well for LSU - Tiger Phil on 11/3/12 at 1:01 pm|
So, Alabama's best SEC win was it's domination of Mississippi State at home.
Right now, Texas A&M is dominating that same Mississippi State team at MSU.
Logically, one can conclude that in dominating MSU, Bama only showed that they are as good as Texas A&M. And we know that Texas A&M is n...
| Tiger Rant|| 80s and 90s Series A&M Contract blah blah blah - Tiger Phil on 10/14/12 at 2:16 pm|
Can someone refresh me on the details of this contract dispute regarding the series that we played with A&M from 1986 - 1995? I know I read an intelligent article (or post) on it a while back, probably in the lead-up to the Cotton Bowl. It had something to do with a different interpretation of the...
| Tiger Rant|| Argument against a rematch - Tiger Phil on 11/7/11 at 9:09 pm|
While LSU and Alabama may well be the two best teams in the country, as of right now, there is no doubt whatsoever in which order to place them. LSU first, and Alabama second. If LSU wins out, this order cannot change. We know that LSU is the best team, and Alabama is no better than second best. ...

Arkansas - Dallas
The exact dates haven't been determined yet. ...

Holy Crap. That has to be the worst missed call in the history of soccer. Yes, even worse than Thierry Henry.

MSU - 18-1
Arkansas - 11-7
Ole Miss - 11-8
Alabama - 10-9
Auburn - 9-10
Florida - 6-13
Surprised to discover that we have the second most wins against Arkansas. To hear them t...

| Tiger Rant|| LSU Rivalry vs. Alabama - we hold our own... - Tiger Phil on 11/7/10 at 12:00 am|
Over the last 11 years, we are 8-3 against Alabama.
Over the past 29 years, we are 14-14-1 against Alabama. This stars with the 1982 game where we broke an 11 game losing streak against Alabama and beat Paul Bryant in his last season at Alabama...
This is a rivalry, yeah....

This is how Les Miles-coached teams win games.
It's not how most coaches that win, win. But it works for Les.
Stop trying to make him normal - he'll never be....
| Tiger Rant|| This is what you get with Les Miles - Tiger Phil on 10/9/10 at 11:42 pm|
I think it is clear that Les doesn't coach football like all those other coaches coach football. He does things differently.
Like going for it on all those 4th downs against Florida in 2007.
Like seemingly forcing every game to be close just to torture the fans.
But you know what? IT ...

Please help me understand the reasons why folks believe that Jack Del Rio would make a good college football coach. And approach it as though if you were the AD responsible for hiring this coach and your job was on the line based on this hire.
There is a mountain of evidence to suggest that it's...
| Tiger Rant|| "Third and Chavis" - Stats? - Tiger Phil on 1/7/10 at 11:42 am|
One reads over and over on this board how "Third and Chavis" killed us time and again this season.
Yet, not once has anyone (that I've seen) produced some stats to verify this.
Can someone please produce stats to tell us how the LSU defense ranked in:
3rd down conversions longer than 5 yard...
| Tiger Rant|| Kris Brown misses a 49-yarder to win the game - Tiger Phil on 11/23/09 at 11:55 pm|
Which is how far the lsu kick would have been after the lafell completion. It was too long a field goal to settle for. The coaches were right to stay agressive at that point in the game.
Just not with deep drops and swing passes....
| Tiger Rant|| Miles & the LSU Coaches made SEVEN critical end game errors - Tiger Phil on 11/22/09 at 12:00 pm|
1) Approximately 4:20 left in the game, and we finally stop Ole Miss and they are going to be forced to take a field goal, which will put them up 8 points. We should have called a timeout in order to not let 35 seconds wind off the clock. We did not.
2) After driving down the field, we score a to...

| Tiger Rant|| Ole Miss beat a team in disarray; LSU suffered a Trap Game - Tiger Phil on 11/21/09 at 8:30 am|
I think people are reading too much into last week's win for Ole Miss. Tennessee was all out of sorts because of the deal with suspended players. They just weren't ready.
Contrarily, LSU was sleepwalking through their game against La Tech and did not have our QB.
| Tiger Rant|| LSU should play Boise St. in 2011 - Tiger Phil on 11/11/09 at 9:12 am|
Was reading about their plight to find quality non-conference foes. They are willing to play anyone from a BCS League without requiring a game back in Boise.
We share the same open date in our schedule right now - September 3, 2011.
Come on, Verge! Make it happen!!...
| Tiger Rant|| Bad news, gang... - Tiger Phil on 10/18/09 at 9:59 am|
LSU slipped to 112th in total offense in the nation.
Verily, we are doomed.
Our coaches are imbeciles who have demolished the Peter Principle by rising above the level of their incompetency.
Our players were extremely overvalued and are, in fact, 1-star recruits at best.
LSU will be the ...

Good grief. I really can't stand all the doom and gloom that is being spewn about on this board.

I said it over and over all summer. Ole Miss is a mirage. They are over rated. They did not deserve the accolades.
Their rep was built on three games that can be explained away:
* They snuck up on Florida. Classic upset game. Florida was, and is still better.
* They pounced on LSU afte...

Hey Husky fans,
You're gonna lose tonight. Let's get that part out of the way.
But I have always rooted for Washington. Loved it when Tuiasosopo was the QB there, Napolean Kaufman, etc. I love Seattle and the state of Washington. Deception Pass is incredible, breathtaking.
But I wan...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU's Road SEC Record under Miles - Tiger Phil on 8/19/09 at 1:42 pm|
Our home SEC record during the same time?
So when people say that LSU can't beat Ole Miss and Alabama on the road, they are trying to apply a truism of college football that really doesn't apply to LSU.
I know what you are going to say, "but 3 of the home losses came last ...

He was at North Carolina for only 3 years. The 2001 - 2003 seasons. The man who succeeded him is still there - Roy Williams.
After the 2000 season, when Bill Guthridge retired, the school tried to hire a well known coach from a power school, but he turned them down. That coach's name? Roy Wil...
