Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Tiger fans - Scoob
we've had a great 15 year run so far. This move seems sloppy, but let's hope that this season is our rock-bottom. If so, a winning record and a bowl game is a hell of a lot higher than most program's crash, and should be easier to rebound from. Let's hope we get the right coach, and that he's the on...

Another troubling thought about this all... - Scoob
So, Miles is being forced out with one of the best resumes in the business, and the clear motivating factor is his failure to win another national title, or at least to beat Alabama more consistently. For those who say "no it was the 3 straight blowouts", no, you don't fire the winningest coach in y...

1911 question - Scoob
Okay, I've owned plenty of fullsize 9mm's, but never a 1911, until now. Came across a Tisas Zig M 1911 used, at a good price (definitely under the listed new price I see online), seems in excellent/ almost new condition. From what I can tell it probably doesn't have more than 100 rds through it, if ...

What will Fournette's totals be against Arkansas? - Scoob
He just got embarrassed big time. Had his worst game since... the last Arkansas game. Will the Hogs shut him down too, or will he redeem himself?...

Harris deep jump balls- a good call? - Scoob
I'm kind of torn on this; for a couple games in a row, Harris has just thrown the ball up for grabs on deep routes, and LSU has scored on these. Are these bad plays, or part of the designed offensive scheme? Bad- there's no timing on the play, people are just standing around waiting for the ball....

Need to rotate the backs more - Scoob
Not a criticism, just an observation. When Fournette is in and the offense is clicking, we look great. But there were some things we saw today... Seems like Fournette can break so many runs that he tires himself out. Think we saw that today, as he looked a little gassed towards the end. At the...

Brandon Coleman- why a lock? - Scoob
Yes, I know another thread was asking on this, but the question was never answered (it veered off into why Snead is better than Toon). I'm not challenging that Coleman should make the team, just asking what is actually going on with him. The guy is big, and his college highlight film looks goo...

Vintage 80's/90's semiauto pistols - Scoob
Ok, I have my own ideas, was curious to see what others thought. Let's say you wanted a collection of various pistols; the usage would be range fun, keepsakes, and just because. Looking at the era between the revolvers and the Glocks; the "real steel" 9mms. Basically the same era as heavy metal b...

On a different note- do we have an extra pt QB on the roster? - Scoob
Now that the kicks have been moved back to the 15, things are going to be interesting in cold weather games (not that the Saints have to worry about this). I wonder if Tebow, in Philly, will be the main XP option the second half of the season. And Cam certainly would be dangerous in that spot. Wh...

El Rey network? - Scoob
Anyone watching this? I just clicked a link, and am intrigued by the concept. In BR, it's on Cox lo-def channel 210 (I think). I've always blown right past it while surfing, assuming it's yet another Spanish channel.. but apparently it's not. It's a Robert Rodriguez/Univision channel, in Engli...

Is this the Golden Age of actors? - Scoob
This is a spinoff of several threads, mostly the CGI and "____ is the GOAT" threads. We're seeing CGI get better and better with facial effects, such as the age-changing of Michael Douglas in Ant Man, and on the other hand we are seeing some iconic actors command a ton of money to make a movie. ...

NOLA Indy Car Grand Prix - Scoob
Anyone going to catch this on Sunday? It's in Avaondale, and this is the inaugural race. I just looked up the track, it's not an oval (Indy 500 style), it's "Grand Prix" style with a bunch of turns, including some real tight hairpins, and two long straightaways. They are racing Indy cars (open top w...

Johnny Jones is not like Dale Brown - Scoob
So many times, people make the remark that Jones is Dale Brown 2.0, that he can bring players in but not win with them. This is not the case, and never was an issue with Brown. People look back at the CJ/Shaq team and use this criticism, but the problem was internal conflicts. I knew members on ...

Random Washington State football question- RPM offense? - Scoob
They had a team back in the 80's, with the "RPM Offense". I remember: "R" was Mark Rypien, QB (had a good career in the NFL); "M" was Reuben Mayes, RB (and Saints favorite for a couple years); Anyone remember who "P" was? ...

Josh Gray's importance to this team - Scoob
I finally saw Gray's importance, and why he can be key this season and next. He's wild and out of control at times. Very raw for a junior, lacks discipline. BUT- here's the thing: he's here now, and will be here next year too (kid's not an early draft prospect). And inside all that wildnes...

SIAP: but Boise to the Fiesta Bowl? WTF?? - Scoob
I see the Fiesta is still paying premium dollar (18 mil) even though they aren't in this year's rotation. So they are doing some nice funding for teams. So, how the hell does Boise merit this monster payout? Note, this is 15 million more than either TCU or Baylor will recieve. A quick breakd...

Coaching on offense seen last night - Scoob
We get so worked up complaining, that sometimes we miss things. Case in point- the "time management" issue. There's a thread on our "problems" again. And of course, there's always the "playcalling sucks" threads. We did have that "3 stooges" incident, with too many people on the field coming out ...

Most Iconic college uniforms? - Scoob
There was a thread on the Rant [link=(http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/display.aspx?p=51599062&pg=1)]LINK[/link] referring to this article. Note that some folks had difficulty separating "iconic" from "coolest" or "best"... The 10: 10) USC 09) Florida 08) LSU 07) Ohio St. 06) Nebr...

Random rookie free agent question - Scoob
Because I'm bored, there's no real sports to dig into right now. So, a question for the NFL personnel gurus: This Armstrong kid, the center from Grand Valley St, he got invited to the NFL Combine from a division 2 school. How do those guys (kids from lower levels that get invited to the Com...

Next year draft- serious question - Scoob
Someone on the SEC rant posted about the RBs dropping out of the 1st rd (we all know you can get good value later). The poster asked about Todd Gurley, and whether he'd go in the 1st next year, or drop like we've seen recently. I wonder- would the Saints pass on him next year in the first? You go...
