No I don't know if he's gone or coming back. But make what you will of it but here's an update. Arby Fields is at this very moment playing center field and is the lead off hitter for the Santa Barbara Foresters against Team Vegas in Las Vegas. This is a California Callegiate League game, same leag...
| Tiger Rant|| Who scores more points, LSU on defense/special teams or Bama Offense? - TigerinSoCal on 12/25/11 at 11:44 pm|
My money is on the Tigers' special teams and defense. Throw in a more productive offense and I don't think it will come down to which team has the better field goal kicker this time around. LSU 42-13...

I know it's the heart of football season but the baseball team started workouts on Sunday and scrimmaged Tuesday and I believe Monday as well. Anyone with an update?
Edit: to clarify days...
| Tiger Rant|| Baseball "hype" videos - are there any? - TigerinSoCal on 7/26/11 at 5:55 pm|
Just looking at the posting of the new defense video and given all the others that have been posted about LSU football got me wondering, are there any similar videos for the baseball team?...
| Tiger Rant|| Halfback option TD pass - anyone see what happened? - TigerinSoCal on 1/8/11 at 3:24 am|
Anyone see what happened to the defender on the ground near the goal line on this play? Looked like Loston was dropping back to cover but never saw how he ended up on the ground? Slipped? or was he knocked down by the receiver? someone else?...
| Tiger Rant|| Potential TD pass to Randle in 1st Quarter - broken up by ULM but - TigerinSoCal on 11/14/10 at 3:30 am|
should it have been a penalty?
I am just watching replay so missed this if it was discussed. The ULM player just about ripped Randle's head off reaching over from behind and pulling his head back by the helmet (if not actual face mask). Shouldn't that have been a penalty? The play was reviewed...
| Tiger Rant|| A novel concept - perhaps Miles isn't so dumb - TigerinSoCal on 10/25/10 at 5:04 am|
as many here want to make him out to be. I know this won't be popular around here, but if you step back a moment and put aside the frustration at how close we were to getting a win on the plains, perhaps there was some actual method to his madness.
We've all criticized the game plan against Aubu...
| Tiger Rant|| Gotta love Lee's attitude inspite of not getting the start - TigerinSoCal on 10/21/10 at 1:19 pm|
Though most everyone thinks Lee has earned the right to be the starter, you gotta love his attitude. Here's to Lee having a break out game on Saturday!!

[quote]Moral of the story: How the hell did they get there? I think we all know that this is not going to last. LSU is not the sixth best team in the country, and they are certainly not better than Alabama. [b]The good news is that they should be out sooner rather than later.[/b] They...

I will be in Glendale, AZ, this weekend. I know the local fans get together in the Phoenix area (Alice Cooperstown?).
Will the game be on in the Glendale area and, if so, what location for the LSU crowd?...
| Tiger Rant|| Miles or Crowton? Anyone know who called the last series? - TigerinSoCal on 10/4/10 at 5:32 pm|
Forgive me if I missed this in all the topics about the end of the Tennessee game, but seriously, what I want to know is who made the decision to:
(1) switch to Jefferson on 2d and goal to go from the 2 yard line after Lee led the team down the field to get in position to score;
(2) only had ...

I'll be in enemy territory for the Labor Day weekend for a baseball tournament. I am sure the game will be on everywhere, but does anyone know of any LSU hang outs in the Cary/Raleigh area?
(Sorry, couldn't find the list)...

| Tiger Rant|| The loss to Ole Miss - 4 straight to Nutt/McCluster TD pass - TigerinSoCal on 11/23/09 at 2:53 pm|
We can debate the reasons for the loss (take your pick - Crowton's play calling, bad clock management, not planning for if we got a first instead of a TD on the 4th down with 9 seconds left, etc.), but what I hate most about the loss to Ole Miss:
1) 4 straight losses to Houston Nutt!! Unfricking b...

There's a lot being kicked around as to the problems with this year's team and what needs to be done to fix the perceived problems. One thing I haven't seen mentioned much is the effect a good game plan can have on a game. It's one of the most crucial aspects but often overlooked in simply looking...

Matt Barkley has been named the starter at USC over sophomore Aaron Corp, and Mitch Mustain, who's been trailing behind the other two since spring practice. I didn't think it was a good choice at the time when Mustain decided to transfer to USC, and it sure doesn't seem that way now that's he 3rd s...

I've always been impressed with Coach Mainieri, from when I first looked at his resume when he was announced as the new LSU coach, to watching him quickly turn the program around. However, in addition to his on the field accomplishments and, of course, winning the 2009 CWS Title, I'm even more impr...
