A brief break from the trolling and preseason threads. Does anyone know why apparel isn't handled at the conference level? The conference splits revenue and each school gets more as a unit in many other facets. It would seem that the brand names of the SEC would fetch a pretty good return if pack...

Les Miles has been very rightly lampooned here and other places for his very high profile mistakes in big spots. He has worked on these issues and they are becoming less frequent, though not totally eliminated.

Looks like Bama's Chris Black is on the list. What if anything can our Bama contingent tell me about him? I didn't remember hearing too much chatter about him or his injury last year.
Here are the other SEC entries:

| Tiger Rant|| With Glenn back, What is the Corresponding Roster Move? - therick711 on 6/3/13 at 3:23 pm|
There could be low-hanging injury fruit, like McMuffin, but I think he will be ok for the Super. So assuming a healthy roster, who gets axed? If it were me, I'd pick Berry, but I don't think Mainieri will take the senior off the roster....

[quote]Instead, I'm more skeptical about the other side of the coin. Mathieu has the skills to be a useful slot cornerback in the NFL, but I wonder how likely his "special" characteristics are to translate to the highest level of football. Mathieu has a well-earned reputation as a playmaker and turn...

Both are great assistant coach hires in their respective sports. If you were given a budget of $1 Million dollars to split between the two of them based solely on how good of a coach they are in their respective areas of expertise, how would you divide it.
This thread is intended to gauge Dunn's...

I read the series write-up posted on the State board. It says that DNF holds 15,000. Two questions, is that true and do you fellas ever get that many fans in there? I don't think the Box can hold that much at normal capacity (I think they bring in extra seats for post-season play). I know you gu...

| SEC Rant|| Dennis Johnson vs. LSU - therick711 on 11/26/12 at 8:39 am|
Flagshippers, as you know Dennis Johnson has had a pretty good career at Arkansas. He has amassed over 2,000 yards in his career. He also has had devastating issues against LSU. His fumble last year turned the game in favor of the Tigers, much like his fumble this year.
So I put the question t...
| Tiger Rant|| This season is exactly why 6-1-1 needs to die - therick711 on 11/12/12 at 9:06 am|
As we all know, many LSU fans find it inequitable that the schedule in conference is done with one so-called permanent opponent.
This year, LSU has played SEC East teams that are 9-1 and 8-2. Neither team has lost out of conference.
Bama, on the other hand has gotten to play 5 and 6 in the SE...
| SEC Rant|| Jonathan Wallace thoughts if you saw him this weekend - therick711 on 10/29/12 at 3:46 pm|
What's the story on Wallace? It appears he looked as good as anyone has for Auburn last weekend. I understand that he ran early and threw mostly late. Did anyone get a good look at his progress or was this the equivalent of the #Dakfense that we saw from the Grinders this weekend.

If so, you just put forward a quality big 12 defense...
| Tiger Rant|| Was LSU faced with taking either Reuben Randle OR DeAngelo Benton - therick711 on 7/25/12 at 3:46 pm|
Was Les Miles forced to choose between Benton and Randle? I remember there was chatter that Randle would not come if Benton was also taken. Does anyone know if that was the actual state of affairs in 2009 or just speculation?
If that was a case, that was an incredibly good choice. Are there an...
| SEC Rant|| A situational breakdown of Eddie Lacy - therick711 on 7/19/12 at 5:54 pm|
Many Bama fans are confident that Eddie Lacy will have a big season. Trolls and contrarians alike have posited that Lacy may have artificially inflated his 2011 numbers through what some have termed "garbage time" carries. Here is a breakdown that I found helpful re: when Lacy received carries and...

So Coach Cal is coaching the DR's national team against the US tonight. Why does he hate America? :usa:

Was there anyone better at scoring on the ground inside the 20 than LeBrandon Toefield? In 2001, Toefield had 19 TDs despite missing significant playing time due to injury. He was the fastest LSU player to 9 TDs needing only five games to eclipse that mark. The guy had great power and punched the...

Everyone knows that LSU has grounded into an ungodly amount of twin killings this year. Conversely, we haven't turned that many (which is an issue for another thread, I'm sure).
Is LSU a victim of being unlucky with regard to ABs in which a double play is possible? I'm not sure if there is an a...
