| SEC Rant|| Most Iconic college uniforms? - Scoob on 8/17/14 at 9:58 am|
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"...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Random rookie free agent question - Scoob on 6/19/14 at 7:58 pm|
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...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Next year draft- serious question - Scoob on 5/10/14 at 9:44 pm|
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...
| Tiger Rant|| Will the media call Urban out, like they do Les? - Scoob on 1/4/14 at 12:05 am|
In case you missed the end of the Orange bowl:
Clemson has the ball around midfield, less than a minute left. Ohio St has 2 timeouts left. So you can run the clock out, right?
Not so fast- Clemson player gets penalized after 1st down, running onto the field with no helmet. 15 yd penalty, and a...
| SEC Rant|| SEC related- who's our allies in the playoff format? - Scoob on 12/8/13 at 11:21 am|
First off, congrats to Auburn, and Go War Eagles :cheers:
Now- I haven't seen a thread on this, so point me to one if it's already established.
We swap away from the BCS after this season to the 4 team playoff. It's already been established that a "committee" will select the four, and not a t...
| SEC Rant|| Almost over; check in if your team won the BCS - Scoob on 12/4/13 at 10:21 pm|
This era is coming to an end; the playoff will be weighted towards conference champs (1 SEC team out of 4). We likely won't see another stretch of dominance like we just went through. not just one team (although Bama certainly put an exclamation point on it), but conference-wide: Fla, LSU, and Bama ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Sean Payton at Tiger Stadium- wonder who he scouted - Scoob on 11/25/13 at 6:56 am|
I'm sure he mostly was enjoying the rare day off, but he probably can't NOT scout/profile players when he watches.
I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't draft someone out of that game. The obvious candidates are the WRs, as Evans looks like a Colston clone, and both Beckham and Landry would be j...
| Tiger Rant|| Cautionary note to the "Fire Les" crowd - Scoob on 11/23/13 at 11:24 pm|
look at Florida today. Lost to a FCS team at home, 4-7 and going to be slaughtered by Florida St.
[i]"But... it can't happen to us! We're LSU..."[/i]
Well, we're LSU, but then again, they're Florida. Their record for the last decade was right there with ours, and before Meyer left, was home to ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Seahawks game will be a win for the Saints regardless - Scoob on 11/22/13 at 10:36 am|
Sorry if already posted, but I didn't see anything similar on the first page.
This upcoming game should be great for the Saints, whether they win or not. For once, "just get the W" doesn't actually apply. Reasons:
This game isn't as important as the Panthers games; if we beat Seattle but lose ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| here's a band-aid: Ed Reed - Scoob on 11/13/13 at 11:40 am|
I don't usually post "should we's", but it's worth a thought, at least.
Ed Reed is about to be cut by the Texans [link=(http://theadvocate.com/sports/saints/7565027-123/ed-reed-to-be-released)]LINK[/link], and we coincidentally just lost Vaccaro for a couple games to a concussion. We're in the m...
| SEC Rant|| Question for A&M fans... bowl predictions - Scoob on 10/21/13 at 12:00 pm|
latest predictions have you in the Cotton again. It's a nice bowl, no doubt. Not saying it isn't;
would y'all prefer that at this point, or do you want a different destination? Try out some of the Fla bowls (my understanding is it's been forever since you've played in one of those)?
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Way too early playoff thoughts... - Scoob on 10/8/13 at 4:50 pm|
With the Falcons crumbling and the Bucs in freefall, the Saints would have to [b]totally[/b] collapse to not win the division this season. I realize it's very early, but seriously- we basically have the NFC South in hand, with 2/3 of the season left.
Right now, we have one legit weakness, and th...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| What is Ryan's defense, really? - Scoob on 9/1/13 at 1:56 am|
We've been calling it a 3-4, but is sure doesn't look like one. Will Smith was planned to start at one "linebacker", and now, we are keeping 3 "true" OLBs on the roster (I put "true" in quotes, because Galette has never played LB prior to this year, and Wilson, while a former LB, had also just moved...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Do the Saints have the balls to make a big trade? - Scoob on 8/26/13 at 2:06 am|
Ok, here's a risky idea, but one that could help the team- trade a starting WR for a hot young linebacker. A guy who might be backing someone up as of now, but will step in and start for the Saints.
Insane? Answer me this- how deep is our WR group right now? When you need a big, physical receiver...
| SEC Rant|| Coaches All SEC team out - Scoob on 8/22/13 at 1:17 pm|
wow, Manziel, the reigning Heisman trophy winner, isn't 1st team. That's gotta sting :lol:
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Who are the special teams locks? - Scoob on 8/21/13 at 8:43 pm|
looking over the roster, we got a good feel for the starters at most spots (and the top 4 WRs for sure).
But then you get into backup territory, and it gets a little iffy; we gotta field a good set of special teams too, and most of those guys won't be our starters. And while somebody might be a ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Rufus Johnson vs Chase Thomas - Scoob on 4/28/13 at 11:25 am|
Rufus drafted (6th rd, I know) on pure potential; but we don't have the slightest clue if he will make the 1st cut.
Chase went undrafted completely despite a stellar career; hell he was All American in 2011. I guess the knock is- he's max'ed out his physical potential... but damn, he seems like a...
| More Sports Board|| UDFAs who will stick - Scoob on 4/27/13 at 9:16 pm|
Just my guess on guys who are practically locks despite not even being drafted:
DaRick Rogers, WR Bills
Chase Thomas, OLB Saints
these guys might end the season starting.
Who else ya got? ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| our new defense, against the Falcons - Scoob on 4/27/13 at 2:03 pm|
So, the plan is that Vaccaro blankets Gonzalez in key situations. Jenkins sits his large arse in the middle of the line and makes life hell for Turner and/or Jackson.
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Here's a weird thought... - Scoob on 4/25/13 at 9:45 pm|
The only times Harper has looked good is when he's up in the box. He plays solid against the run, and he's honestly been one of our best pass rushers on the blitz.
Other than his (obviously small) size, he plays like a ... outside linebacker.
Not that I would want this over a true linebacker ...
