| Tiger Rant|| With 85 scholarships, why don't coaches recruit more "specialists"? - Terry the Tiger on 1/17/15 at 8:36 am|
Back when I was at LSU during the Shaq years, I often wondered why coaches didn't ask a guy like Shaq to come play football to do things like try to block FGs or even to just stand in the end zone as a redzone or two-point conversion target. If you think that a 6'4" WR is a mismatch on a 5'11" CB, ...
| SEC Rant|| Are Bama fans concerned that no more games will be at home.... - Terry the Tiger on 12/2/14 at 12:11 pm|
This is not a flame. It is an issue that no one is talking about any more. Alabama's offense has not played well on the road or at neutral sites this season. In the second halves of 4 road SEC games, Alabama only averaged 5 points in the second half. And it was not because they took the foot off...
| Tiger Rant|| Does MSU benefit by playing teams after LSU beats them up? - Terry the Tiger on 10/26/14 at 2:26 pm|
So far MSU has played Auburn and Kentucky the week after those teams played the physical style of LSU. They also play Alabama the week after we play the Tide. It seems like that is an advantage for MSU.
I remember seeing a stat a few years ago where most teams lost the week after playing LSU su...

| Tiger Rant|| In second halves of 3 road SEC games, we have forced ZERO punts! - Terry the Tiger on 10/20/13 at 8:35 am|
And it doesn't look like that trend will change in Tuscaloosa. That is not on the "young and inexperienced" defensive players, but on the "old and experienced" defensive coordinator. The defense had the same problems at the tail end of last season with experienced players.
Teams have Chavis f...

Offense looks like. LSU had an advantage over TCU in that regard as they really didn't how too much to plan for. For example, will teams double team Landry on third downs.
I realize that we saw just the tip of the iceberg and that Cam will continue to implement more things. We didn't see any...

...all I need to know about this class. Most of the top classes have only a couple of spots left, yet LSU has half of its class left. My gut tells me that many of the instate guys are silent commitments and are just waiting for the All-Star games to make it public. Does that mean that LSU will ge...
| Tiger Rant|| Does anyone else every dream about LSU football? - Terry the Tiger on 8/10/13 at 9:17 am|
Maybe I shouldn't read the Rant prior to going to bed. Last night, I dreamt that LSU lost the home opener to Texas A&M 13-6. The defense played great against Johnny Football, but the offense looked just like last year's against A&M. The home crowd was booing during the game and was irate afterwar...

| Political Talk|| What will it take to unite this nation? - Terry the Tiger on 8/10/12 at 7:23 pm|
The division among the people of this nation is troubling, and our politicians continue to divide us even more. The poor are told to hate the rich. The middle class is told to hate the poor and the rich. Those that choose not to work are told to hate the exact people that support them. Racial mino...

....would for the season to play out for us this year like it did last year for Alabama. If we were to blow out everyone and then lose to Alabama at home in a close game, there would be no chance that the voters would allow a rematch if Alabama were to run the table. Even though the situation would...
| Tiger Rant|| What are our realistic expectations for LSU basketball? - Terry the Tiger on 4/15/12 at 11:26 pm|
What do you guys think are realistic expectations of the LSU basketball program? It seems that in recent years, the elite players all line up to attend UNC, Duke, UConn, Kansas, Kentucky, etc. I don't expect us to ever be in that group.
If Jones is successful given the resources available to h...

5 SCHOOL years to play 4 instead of the CALENDAR year. That would eliminate the early enrollee system that is BS IMO. Why should certain players get to get a "free" spring practice under their belt and not everyone? Same goes for summer school It gives certain players and programs a distinct advan...
