| Tiger Rant|| Florida doing all it can to remedy schedule inequity - lsuexpert57 on 11/27/13 at 8:59 pm|
If Florida St. blows out the Gators this weekend it may do even more to fix our schedule problems.
As we all know the disparity between Florida and Tennessee has given Bama a big advantage in the compartive strengths of our respective schedules over the last several years.
These things tend to...
| Tiger Rant|| Why is Collins getting no love in mock drafts? - lsuexpert57 on 10/18/13 at 5:42 pm|
The guy has been a MONSTER at LT all year, and yet you are hearing little to nothing nationally about him.
Hard to believe he is flying so low under the radar to TAMU's and Bama's LT's, because to my eyes there certainly doesn't seem to be much difference in talent or performance wise!...
| Tiger Rant|| 2013 offense vs 2006-2007 offenses - lsuexpert57 on 9/6/13 at 6:40 pm|
For me the 2006 LSU offense was the most talented in the Les Miles era, with 2007 a close second.
The 2007 bunch won the BCS championship so its hard to argue against them....but when the staff turned JR and company loose....to me the 2006 bunch were the hardest to stop.
The 2013 version has...

And its not even close!
Found this on the "SEC Blog" on the ESPN website. SIAP

| Tiger Rant|| I really like how Cameron handles the Media. - lsuexpert57 on 8/12/13 at 9:02 pm|
Don't get me wrong, I love CLM, but his press conferences can be mind numbing. I mostly find his rambling and unique speech patterns to be quite humorous, but lots of times I just want him to cut to the chase. The Chief is just all business and coachspeak in his interviews, which is pretty much par ...
| Tiger Rant|| Anybody else suprised that Copeland didn't declare for the draft? - lsuexpert57 on 1/17/13 at 11:47 pm|
I mean, it was kind of a free for all for juniors leaving for the draft this year, and it's not like a FB is going to play his way into the first round.
In my mind Copeland was sorta in the same position as Brad Wing. He plays a position that is not a high value position in the NFL and spending ...
| Tiger Rant|| What is the true "rank" of LSU's offense? - lsuexpert57 on 1/13/13 at 5:48 pm|
Lots of folks like to quote where LSU ranks in the total offense stats for all D-1 teams. Do you think this is a TRUE rank of LSU's offense?...

How many SEC schools would have offered his brother a scholly?...
| Tiger Rant|| Trai Turner to center in 2013? - lsuexpert57 on 12/18/12 at 7:48 pm|
I haven't heard anything about a move like that, but if Chris Faulk returns from his injury next year as good as new it may be something the coaching staff will try.
Turner certainly seems to have the build for center, being the short and squatty type that seems to end up there alot, and we shoul...
| Tiger Rant|| So we fell victim to the "even number year" curse again! - lsuexpert57 on 11/25/12 at 6:57 pm|
The good news is that next year is an odd numbered year! We're gonna rock the '13!
Since 2000, LSU has gone the SECCG every odd numbered year except for 2009. When in doubt go with history and bet on the streak!...
| Tiger Rant|| Whats the most teams the SEC has ever had finish in the top 10? - lsuexpert57 on 11/24/12 at 8:12 pm|
I can't remember a year recently when we have so many premium teams in the league. If Ga beats Bama and USCe beats clemson, the SEC will likely finish with 6 of the top 10...
| Tiger Rant|| How certain are you that Mett doesn't go pro after this year? - lsuexpert57 on 11/13/12 at 8:47 pm|
I'd say I'm about 50/50 at the moment depending on how he finishes out the year. If he continues to blow up in the last two games and then kills the bowl game his stock will be very high.
His physical skills are apparent and of course pro coaches always think the sooner they get their hands on hi...
| Tiger Rant|| So do we really call that a "wildcat"? - lsuexpert57 on 10/14/12 at 1:57 pm|
Seemed more of just put Ware under center and do a QB sneak...not that I don't think it can be effective in the right spots.
Like most though, I sure would like to see a series of Ware in the shotgun with Shep coming by in jet sweep action...I got a feeling that would be tasty! Its not like our ...
| Tiger Rant|| Next option if Josh D goes down Saturday? - lsuexpert57 on 10/10/12 at 10:59 pm|
Josh looked pretty good after Hurst was benched Sat...and with help is probably our best shot at LT this weekend. He has been fragile this year, so who do you think we try at LT next?...
| Tiger Rant|| Clement is looking really lost in the passing game. - lsuexpert57 on 9/24/12 at 10:04 pm|
He really looks like he is struggling to get out quickly and find open spots in the zone. I think Mett would like to give him a few more shots, but he didn't get open much against Auburn. This is another position I wish we had a few more options at....
| Tiger Rant|| So far, we really seem to be missing Reuben Randle the most. - lsuexpert57 on 9/24/12 at 4:21 pm|
None of our receivers has stepped up to be "that guy" that can be counted on to make the big play in the passing game. I can't help but feel, that if it had been RR on the end of both of those long passes that Mett threw to OBJ and Shep, those catches would have been made. Losing him has been a bigg...
| SEC Rant|| How long till TAMU and Mizzou feel like "SEC" teams? - lsuexpert57 on 9/10/12 at 10:24 pm|
This weekends games, GA/MO and TAMU/FLA felt a lot more like OOC games than conference games. I'm thinking its gonna take me a couple of years to start thinking of them as SEC brethern. I'm loving the newness of playing them though....better than the same old songs....
| Tiger Rant|| Where are all the tards that complained about the play calling last week? - lsuexpert57 on 9/8/12 at 11:16 pm|
You know who you are. You are the ones who don't understand football and whined and complained about all the bubble screens and lack of downfield passing last week. You thought you understood more than the coaching staff and wondered aloud on this forum if the coaches understood that you have to thr...
| Tiger Rant|| How much will the new kickoff rules affect the game? - lsuexpert57 on 8/31/12 at 4:14 pm|
It seems to me that since touchbacks get out to the 25, coaches will be telling the return men to just kneel on it every chance they get. This probably will mean fewer chances for our return guys to affect the game...but also means that there will be more chances to play things safe in tight games l...
| Tiger Rant|| What is your favorite trait of a Miles coached team? - lsuexpert57 on 6/18/12 at 8:20 pm|
Mine is the fact that his teams seem to do well when preseason expectations are high. Many teams (Clemson, Georgia and TAMU to name a few) seem to have trouble handling high expectations but Miles' teams, for the most part, have ended up fairly close to their predicted finish. To me this indicates ...
| SEC Rant|| Bama/LSU poised to become the Miami/FSU of the next decade. - lsuexpert57 on 12/30/11 at 6:28 pm|
I remember watching all those games in the 80's and 90's and they always seemed to be an elimanation game for the NC. With the way both schools are recruting we are set up to reach that level of annual intensity....
| SEC Rant|| Mizzou and TAMU fans, what are your feelings towards the new schedules? - lsuexpert57 on 12/28/11 at 10:35 pm|
For us SEC fans, we really are only adding one new team apiece....but ya'll are adding a whole new slate of teams...exciting no?...
| Tiger Rant|| Overheard bama fans talking at Beau Rivage poker table - lsuexpert57 on 12/10/11 at 4:44 pm|
Before they knew I was an LSU fan, they were talking about the NCG and the guy sitting next to me told the other that Bama had better win because he wasn't going to be able to take listening to the LSU fans brag all year!! He said the last couple of months had already been more than he could take.
| SEC Rant|| The BCS screwed LSU/SEC! - lsuexpert57 on 12/5/11 at 11:13 am|
To me, one of the most enjoyable things about whomever the SEC sends to the BCSNCG or any BCS bowl for that matter...is watching one of our teams beat up on teams from another conference. It would have been much more fun watching watching us beat OSU 41-21 and watching Bama beat Michigan 52-10.
| SEC Rant|| If LSU loses to GA, does that increase the chance Bama gets left out? - lsuexpert57 on 11/26/11 at 10:46 pm|
That would leave NO unbeatens and all the once beatens would start chirping for their shot. LSU's resume is clearly head and shoulders above everyone else and theie loss to GA hurts Bama's resume.
I think for the time being LSU/Bama is a lock for the BCSNC...but an LSU loss could be the Tide's n...
| SEC Rant|| If you favor a CFB playoff then you should favor a BCS rematch. - lsuexpert57 on 11/21/11 at 9:23 pm|
If CFB ever goes to a playoff...even just a plus one, then a Bama/LSU type rematch will become much more common. It's exactly this sort of situation that playoff opponents point to. One of the tradeoffs will be that it makes the regular season less important.
If for instance, LSU and Bama do pla...
| Tiger Rant|| I wonder how much Ensminger talks to JJ/JL about his QB years at LSU - lsuexpert57 on 11/15/11 at 7:57 pm|
considering he lived through much the same type of controversy that they are going through. Virtually the entire 1979 season the fanbase was split and screaming for either Woodley or Ensminger and kind of the same issues. Ensminger was strictly a pocket passer while Woodley was the better runner. Fu...

Since they will essentially be CHOOSING the SEC west rep with their vote. I just wonder how many will be fully versed on the SEC tiebreaker rules, and how important the exact order of LSU, Bama and Ark will be. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Bama never got further than the LSU 17.... - lsuexpert57 on 11/9/11 at 3:42 pm|
and only got in the red zone ONCE the whole game, yet for some reason that fact isn't getting much play from them as a possible reason they lost. HUH, go figure....
| SEC Rant|| Bama needs to do what we did, hire a coach with balls after Saban rebuilds you - lsuexpert57 on 11/9/11 at 3:00 pm|
Saban turned around both LSU and Bama, a rebuilder with no peer, but as Bama is now seeing, it's much more enjoyable to follow him with a fun loving, risk taker for a head man....
