| Tiger Rant|| Kevin Sumlin direct quote. LSU related - LSU GrandDad on 10/19/14 at 5:06 pm|
in this mornings' Houston Chronicle, Sumlin quotes.."we need to examine what we're doing schematically".
this is after rushing for 31 yds yesterday. (1.3 yds per carry). also, his offense had only 8 first downs and was 19-31 for 141 yds.
similarly, West Virginia (of all teams) virtually shut d...

what are they good at? offense, defense, running game, etc?
I have not seen them play....
| Tiger Rant|| After watching the replay of the Florida game - LSU GrandDad on 10/13/14 at 9:10 pm|
it is amazing how long it takes to get a play called. and how does a team get a delay of game penalty following a time out?
there is something wrong with our OC. seriously. he's either indecisive as hell or he is a micro mgr and has to give 50 instructions along with the play call.
we won the...

NO MATTER WHAT, this is going to be a tough 5 game stretch. this board continues to harp on the coaches and players incessan...
| SEC Rant|| What teams in the west have a legitimate shot at last place? - LSU GrandDad on 10/12/14 at 8:08 pm|
ok auburn, bama, ole miss and msu are out of this competition. they just don't qualify.
that leaves us with a&m, lsu and Arkansas. and this is going to be some close race.
A&M: self anointed playoff candidate in August has now hit a wall. they have lost 2 in a row and still have to play bama, ...
| Tiger Rant|| Improvements on offense I saw last night - LSU GrandDad on 10/12/14 at 6:38 pm|
not saying we are a well oiled machine but from an execution standpoint we made some attempts and some strides last night.
1) blocking by OL much improved
2)blocking by WR's and TE's much improved; even saw some downfield blocking by the WR's
3) AJ suffered several coverage sacks. these may be ...
| Tiger Rant|| This team has "bottomed out" - LSU GrandDad on 10/12/14 at 9:36 am|
we will still suffer some tough patches and will lose some more games but we are on the rise.
our offense needs to continue to improve on execution and our Dline needs to continue to improve on it's run D.
I saw a lot of good things last night that give me optimism for the future. esp if we c...
| Tiger Rant|| we have nothing to lose. we need to play like it. - LSU GrandDad on 10/9/14 at 4:20 pm|
somewhere during this season the pressure will subside and everyone will take not take LSU as seriously.
maybe then we will perculate and start playing well. ...
| Tiger Rant|| can talented and well coached athletes still play bad as a team? - LSU GrandDad on 10/7/14 at 1:37 pm|
anyone that has played at a pretty high level (high school on up) will probably know the answer to this question. I don't mean sitting on the bench, I mean guys that have been players know that there are a lot of factors that determine how well a team plays.
| Tiger Rant|| is this week end the game that our D gives us a chance to win? - LSU GrandDad on 10/7/14 at 9:57 am|
Florida's offense is terrible and they lost their "new found" QB yesterday. I am hopeful (not sure if optimistic) that our defense can keep us in the ball game and give our offense a fighting chance to win the game.
maybe our QB will stay in the pocket this week. and look for open receivers. and ...
| Tiger Rant|| We played poorly but what i don't understand about this team. - LSU GrandDad on 10/5/14 at 6:44 pm|
we knew we were going to struggle at QB and at DL before the season started. and probably WR.
but our pass defense seems to have just gone to hell. auburn set up their running game with it last night and nick friggin' marshall is not that accurate of a passer.
and, of course, our OL. they actu...
| Tiger Rant|| the ole 2 QB system is very wierd - LSU GrandDad on 9/25/14 at 1:29 pm|
I have seen it where one plays the first half and one the second half (coach mac's spproach), and I've seen it where they actually alternate series. even when one masters a long drive to score, boom! he sits and waits his turn. and then there's the old "feeling" approach; just change when the "feeli...
| Tiger Rant|| how does this problem get solved? - LSU GrandDad on 9/25/14 at 10:42 am|
imo, the current state of our football team...
DEFENSE: real weak up the middle. seems to be a
lack of talent at DT and MLB
OFFENSE: OL is lost. blocking by other positions
weak. therefore, we can't run the ball.
QB has no touch on short to mid passes,
| Tiger Rant|| I've read often that we should "let the QB's loose" - LSU GrandDad on 9/22/14 at 11:14 am|
exactly what does that mean?
do you think either of our QB's read defenses well enough to allow them to audible out of a call?
do you think either QB goes down his progressions before throwing the ball or just pre selects his WR?
Do you think our pass protection is good enough to be a pas...
| Tiger Rant|| this team is not as bad as it looked last night - LSU GrandDad on 9/21/14 at 2:01 pm|
but it's not good enough to play a pro style offense. we have some deficiencys that are going to bite us in the arse sometimes. mainly our run D and our line blocking is mediocre. add that to the freshman inconsistency and the qb inexperience and we don't run on all cylinders on too many plays.
| 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...
