| Tiger Rant|| Kevin Gausman pitching well - lsuprof on 6/18/14 at 7:38 pm|
I see that Kevin Gausman had his third straight strong start for the Baltimore Orioles today. He has won his last three starts, allowing only two earned runs in 19 innings. Today he threw six innings of five-hit shutout ball. Overall he is 3-1 with a 2.74 ERA....

| Political Talk|| Interesting quote on election mandates - lsuprof on 11/16/12 at 9:51 am|
"Maybe peace would have broken out with a different kind of White House, one less committed to waging a perpetual campaign--a White House that would see a 51-48 victory as a call to humility and compromise rather than an irrefutable mandate."
Senator Barack Obama, 2004...

Does anyone else think that the timing in our running game looks off when Jefferson hands off or pitches to our running backs? It seems to me that our running game is just a bit out of sync with Jefferson at QB.
I notice that JL seems to look a bit smoother when he is handing off. Our running b...
