| Tiger Rant|| what is today's criterion of a good offense? - LSU GrandDad on 9/4/14 at 4:00 pm|
it seems to me that many, if not most people salivate over the offenses that produce the most yards and that everything else is secondary.
is this a by product of the video football games?
I know fast paced yard gobbling teams are fun to watch but winning the games seems more important. and t...
| Tiger Rant|| Spring game OL performance looked shaky - LSU GrandDad on 4/7/14 at 10:45 am|
watching the first half videos I noticed our front seven dominated our OL on a lot of plays. since we have an experienced OL and a new DL what gives? do they know our plays that well? :lol:...
| Tiger Rant|| Congratulations to Dale Brown - LSU GrandDad on 3/26/14 at 5:38 pm|
and Shaq too of course. But Daddy Dale was unbelievable at LSU and I think his departure stunk (for the reasons they said). He deserves this honor and I sincerely hope JJ can bring back the excitement that Brown's teams brought in. So many memories. The PMAC was one rockin' place in my day. :geauxti...
| 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...
