| 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...

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...

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.

The reason the I want LSU to play OSU is so that they will have the chance to beat three BCS conference champs in one season. Then when people talk about best seasons ever, how many teams could claim to have done that?...

Oregon players want a rematch because the "gave LSU 21 points". If I were a reporter, I would follow up with this question, "Why did you do that? Giving anyone that good 21 points seems stupid to me. If you had a decent defense, they maybe would have had to earn th...
| SEC Rant|| What if LSU were to lose to Arkansas, could LSU still play for the BCSNC? - Terry the Tiger on 11/13/11 at 8:07 am|
Let's say Arkansas beats LSU and passes LSU in the polls. Would LSU be behind Bama in the BCS? If not, Arkansas would advance to the SEC Championship game. With an Arkansas SEC championship and an OU win in Bedlam, who would you put in the BCS?
The main players would be Arkansas, Bama, LSU, Or...

| Tiger Rant|| Dont be down on this offense just yet. - Terry the Tiger on 9/5/11 at 10:35 am|
This first game might be a microcosm of our season offensively. It was ugly early on but got better as the game went on. I expect the same as the season progresses. This offense will continue to improve.
This is an offense that had the plays called by an OC that has only been on the job for a ...

2.) Some members of the group of players removed the driver from his car.
Then I would explain the playe...

What are players' parents thinking these days? With all of the smoke that came out of Auburn this past season, I wouldn't let my son even visit Auburn, much less sign to play there.
I thought the exact same thing when Saban returned to Alabama. After lying to everyone about not being the ne...

I just noticed that ND has received commitments from 7 DEs in this year's class. 6 of the 7 are 6'5" or taller. They have two 5-star commitments, which just happen to be the #2 Weakside and Strongside DEs.
I think that 7 DEs equals the number of defensive player Charlie Weis recruited his entir...

I wish the NCAA would crackdown on the multiple caps as a player announces his selected school. First of all, it has been played out for a decade. Second of all, it is an dig at the schools that are not selected.
What is wrong with standing there, announcing the school that you selected, and pu...
