| LSU Recruiting Board|| I'm nervous about both sides of the line of scrimmage - LSU GrandDad on 2/6/14 at 10:17 am|
i saw where FSU signed 7 OL and 7 DL yesterday and other schools signed a lot also. looking at our DL this year and our projected OL next year ('15) we look really thin in the two deep.
we need to step it up, esp on OL. I guess that's why stud got canned.
sorry to be negative today. other tha...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| What's the deal with recruit "handlers" - LSU GrandDad on 1/13/14 at 8:14 am|
are handlers really that big of a deal in today's recruitment process? with the cam newton situation where it was OK that his dad got money as long as cam was unaware of it, has this now become the norm? i't also seems that colleges have unusually large recruiting budgets; more than enough (seemingl...
| SEC Rant|| I believe Kiffin was brought to USC as a probation stop gap - LSU GrandDad on 1/12/14 at 8:01 am|
He was suckered in to leaving UT and USC knew it was just to be a temp during the probation bad time.
He may be a pretty good OC though as much as I hate to say it....
| SEC Recruiting|| how come ole miss is suddenly a big player in recruiting success? - LSU GrandDad on 1/4/14 at 10:49 am|
what is freeze doing? he's outrecruiting coach o even. my first impression is that illegal inducements are being used. i say this because of the abrupt difference in recruit quality and the fact that ole miss has a history of shady recruiting....
| Tiger Rant|| I was impressed with LSU as a team yesterday - LSU GrandDad on 1/2/14 at 9:59 am|
our starting qb went down and we were forced to start a rookie. the coaches stepped up and devised a great game plan; the OL stepped up and played their best game of the year and our defense played so well it amazed me.
for the first time i am very hopeful we will field a damn good team next yea...
| Coaching Changes|| tejas university is not as good of a job as many think it is - LSU GrandDad on 12/15/13 at 11:09 am|
there are a number of jobs as good or better when one considers the overall conditions. some folks seem to think that texas oil money will be showered on the HC and also think recruiting texas is as easy as falling off a log. never mind that what got mack in trouble to begin with was lazy recruiting...
| Tiger Rant|| Looks like Baylor and Oregon are indeed not invincible (LSU related) - LSU GrandDad on 11/24/13 at 6:48 am|
You xbox guys that think that teams that put up tons of yardage with the pass happy spread concept are unstoppable just don't get it. every year we hear how great they are and annoint them as NC winners and every year they crash. It appears pro style or modifyed pro style wins again.
| Tiger Rant|| The players respect for Manziel - LSU GrandDad on 11/24/13 at 6:05 am|
Last night I noticed that after several plays an LSU player helped up an aggy player. Manziel was helped up more than once and a coupla times a short conversation ensued and ended with a mutual helmet tap by both Manziel and the LSU player.
Maybe it was just we were kicking arse but it appeared t...
| Tiger Rant|| If LSU wins today, get ready for the Aggy fan stories - LSU GrandDad on 11/23/13 at 8:59 am|
-My 110 yr old grandmother and my 6 mo old baby were yelled at in their face. This caused my baby to have nightmares and my grandmother to wet herself.
-We were physically assaulted by a barrage of piss balloons, whiskey bottles and other debris
-We were verbally assaulted by classless little ...
| Tiger Rant|| This defenses problem is not the linebackers - LSU GrandDad on 11/13/13 at 10:19 am|
we have a mediocre to bad defensive line. i believe that's why miles and company want beckworth at DL. i actually feel pretty good about next years defense knowing the talent we recruited at DL last year. i think we will see much better LB and secondary play immediately if we can put an improved DL ...
| Tiger Rant|| Juniors leaving early befuddles me - LSU GrandDad on 11/3/13 at 8:46 pm|
sure, i understand a lot of guys leave early for financial reasons but what i struggle with is the number of guys that leave early that aren't drafted that high. today i heard that both ferguson and the freak are likely to leave. they just don't seem to be that good. what's up? it seems that lately ...
| Tiger Rant|| what nick saban did for LSU - LSU GrandDad on 11/1/13 at 10:34 am|
contrary to some on here, esp the younger ones, nick saban did not create LSU as a national power. he did not "make" LSU. LSU was not a dismal program before he came and resurrected it.
nick saban is not the reason LSU has a great program now.
but nick saban was very important for LSU's climb ba...
| Tiger Rant|| Can an out of state GeauxZone member get audio of game tonight - LSU GrandDad on 10/26/13 at 10:57 am|
i see where the video is limited to La or SC customers only but can i get the radio stream living here in houston? ...
| Tiger Rant|| Is doing away with the student section a good option? - LSU GrandDad on 10/17/13 at 10:34 am|
still allow the students to attend by selling them tickets but the tickets are interspersed throughout the stadium. ie, put students in with the general population instead of segregating them....
| SEC Rant|| A&M is 1-3 against top SEC opponents sinced they joined - LSU GrandDad on 10/15/13 at 1:07 pm|
with auburn down and arky down, the ags have played 4 games against top opponents. they lost 75% of those games and three of them were at home in kyle field.
and arky beat 'em every year before petrino got canned.
jff is the difference in that program. even though he can't win much against t...
| Tiger Rant|| So, UF players called our team out after last year. - LSU GrandDad on 10/13/13 at 9:35 am|
i guess they were wrong. hell, last year our D was on the hot, hot, hot field so long they wore out. i think our D played like they had something to prove and they did. i loved the near altercations at the end of the game; mett pushing their trash talking player down and the near fisticuffs that wer...
| Tiger Rant|| our offense had a bad game today - LSU GrandDad on 10/12/13 at 6:05 pm|
at least our passing offense; mett missed more open receivers than any game he's played and there were a coupla key drops. boone was wide open on that one play and mett threw it about 5 ft over his head and then our TE was open for a TD on a play where florida had busted coverage. now that's it's ov...
| Tiger Rant|| If you have not read Dandy Don today, you should. - LSU GrandDad on 10/9/13 at 10:39 am|
scotts interview with mike detiller is a very good read, esp concerning our defense. it's not sunshine pumping and it's not sky is falling stuff. i found it a realistic look at the state of our defense and a view that some struggle with because of our purple and gold glasses and others struggle with...
| Tiger Rant|| This is going to be a really close game - LSU GrandDad on 10/8/13 at 9:15 pm|
just like they all are when two SEC powers meet. if our offense plays the game we know they are capable of and our defense and special teams play well we should pull it out.
the difference is it's in TIGER STADIUM! the place is gonna be rockin'...
| Tiger Rant|| Breaking in our #2 QB; How? - LSU GrandDad on 10/6/13 at 6:52 pm|
a recurring point on here is that we continue to leave mett in after the game is decided.
my question, hopefully to be answered by savy fans with some experience, is exactly how is this done w/o letting the other team back in the game?
it seems to me just having #2 come in and hand the ball o...
| Tiger Rant|| i have to wonder about our d backfield coaching - LSU GrandDad on 10/3/13 at 10:43 am|
it seems that since we lost cooper, we have struggled. i know we lost claiborn and peterson and reid but the guys we have now were just as heralded coming out of high school. i also know our db coach is an ex player and a Tiger through and through. does anyone out there have ACTUAL playing experienc...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU DEFENSE: It is what it is gentlemen - LSU GrandDad on 9/30/13 at 9:50 am|
we lost the core; the heart and the soul of the defense to the NFL. all of the kool aid drinkers said that didn't matter and that with our talent we would just reload. well, the guys on the bench always seem to be more talented to some on here.
we lost too much and our new defense is really strug...
| Tiger Rant|| The "breaks" are gonna determine this game - LSU GrandDad on 9/25/13 at 4:54 pm|
a turnover, a db dropping a sure interception, a penalty nullifying a cruial play, a blown coverage, a RB that comes up inches short on 4th down.......you know those kind of things. ido understand why uga is favored but this game may be the SEC determinant. ...
| SEC Rant|| Attention Gator and Gamecock fans that love LSU - LSU GrandDad on 9/23/13 at 4:33 pm|
it's probably tough to digest but you are LSU fans at heart. am i right?...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU fans don't know how to dress properly - LSU GrandDad on 9/22/13 at 12:29 pm|
i have read many times today that fans left early because they were cold, wet and very uncomfortable. and their childrens lips were turning blue. it appears hypothermia was about to be a problem.
ARE YOU FRIGGIN' STUPID. there are products readily available to prevent this discomfort. ask any du...
| Tiger Rant|| what happens if lsu, bama and a&m end in a tie? - LSU GrandDad on 9/18/13 at 10:18 pm|
i've searched and couldn't locate the tie breaker. if we beat bama, a&m beats us and bama beat a&m and we all go 7-1 who goes to atlanta?...
| Tiger Rant|| The ole toss sweep play - LSU GrandDad on 9/15/13 at 1:02 pm|
i am shocked that cam dialed that play up last night considering the rant seems to hate it so much. :lol:
me, i love it and have since USC used to dominate college football with it. i think it's the perfect counter balance to our runs between the tackles and forces the defense to spread out. it ...
| Tiger Rant|| Dumb question: how is the winner of the west determined? - LSU GrandDad on 9/15/13 at 12:49 pm|
is it the best SEC record or the best SEC west record?
i think it's the former and if so LSU could go undefeated in the west and still not "win" the west and go to atlanta. something just doesn't seem right about that.
i know, i know, we just need to take care of business....
| Tiger Rant|| the TCU defense - LSU GrandDad on 9/5/13 at 9:52 am|
did y'all catch where coach miles said that the TCU defense ripped off an LSU players helmet on 3 different occasions. so they must have been trying to get our players to miss a play or to burn the 10 seconds where it applied. that go me to thinking that TCU was damn lucky that big 10 officiating cr...
| Tiger Rant|| TCU's HC; paterson, peterson, whatever impressed me - LSU GrandDad on 9/3/13 at 12:41 pm|
my impression before the game was that the guy was a whiny bitch that actually looks like a frog (look at his face and tell me otherwise). but i have changed my mind about him; he really has a very well coached squad and they were damn motivated. i'm surprised another school hasn't hired him away fr...
