| Tiger Rant|| SEC Stadium names / Tiger Stadium - HoopyD on 10/24/14 at 4:27 pm|
It never really dawned on me that Tiger Stadium is one of only a few stadiums in the SEC that isn't actually named for someone (The others being Kentucky, Missouri and Vanderbilt)
So if the stadium is eventually named after someone, who would it be?...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU faculty - Thoughts on head coach - HoopyD on 10/22/14 at 4:27 pm|
This is by no means scientific but I had the pleasure of visiting with 2 LSU faculty members on separate occasions this week. Both were involved with the footbal team to some degree under both Saban and Miles. Both had great things to say about Miles ("great guy", "remembers personal inforamtion a...

So I like looking at opposing teams' message boards prior to big games. An Ole Miss forum has a thread about horror stories from visits to LSU. One fan offered this gem....

Tiger stadium is at its best when a highly ranked team comes to town and we have a chance to upset them.
Not looking past Kentucky but the Ole Miss game should be a fun night. ...

What is the point of Strahan on GMA? His sole contribution is he introduces a story done by someone else who then gives another introduction to the story.
| SEC Rant|| LSU and Alabama betting lines seem like a trap - HoopyD on 10/13/14 at 3:02 pm|
Something seems off with both the LSU and Alabama lines. Both are favored by double digits.
Kentucky is legit on both offense and defense and took Florida to overtime. LSU has striaght up struggled on both sides of the ball this year.
Alabama's defensive weakness is in the secondary and its ...
| SEC Rant|| You can always tell which teams did well by the icons - HoopyD on 10/7/14 at 1:46 pm|
Ole Miss and Auburn all over the board. A&M, LSU and SC have gone into hiding. Alabama beat themselves ,as usual, so they only half vacate. ...

| Tiger Rant|| Why does Miles get the stubborn label? - HoopyD on 9/29/14 at 1:07 pm|
Except for the 2011 Championship game, he's usually pretty responsive.
Peveto/Mallory not working out. Changes coordinators.
Studrawa's O bogging down. Brings in Cam.
This years I heavy offense bogging down, changes QB and formations.
He doesn't play freshmen. Now plays more freshmen...
| Tiger Rant|| Meanwhile....on defense - HoopyD on 9/26/14 at 10:43 am|
With all the groaning and moaning about the offense, the fact that we gave up more yards than EVER during Miles' tenure (to Miss St no less) has been completely lost in the discussion.
Offense can be fixed. We are really young at critical skill positions but time will take care of that. The c...
| Tiger Rant|| Jennings and the QB sneak - HoopyD on 9/22/14 at 9:15 am|
MSU is just better than LSU this year. They are loaded with experience and veteran leadership. They beat a team that is young and inexperienced in key positions. Turns out losing truckloads of talent early to the NFL eventually takes a toll. THe loss can be explained.
What I can't figure out ...

Anyone else watching this? Great job by Ken Burns again.
Best segment so far..... Teddy was shot while on the campaign trail. The bullet went through a 50 page speech tucked in his jacket and lodged in his rib. He carried on and delivered an hour long campaign speech which began with "I don'...
| Tiger Rant|| Does LSU bulk up their RBs too much? - HoopyD on 9/16/14 at 1:07 pm|
Magee seems to have lost his burst and break away speed he showed last year. He also appears to be heavier than last year.
Spencer Ware was a break away threat in the Cotton Bowl and then turned into a battering ram the next two years. Same for Hilliard after his frosh year.
I realize the bu...

when MSU last beat LSU.
- Bill Clinton was president. So was Nelson Mandela and Boris Yeltsin.
- We were all getting ready for the Y2k bug
- George Clooney left ER
- Jerry Falwell thought the teletubbies were gay
- Our minds were blown at the end of the Sixth Sense
- War erupted in Kosovo
| SEC Rant|| If Auburn beats K State, it won't be because K State wasn't prepared - HoopyD on 9/15/14 at 3:36 pm|
I've always admired Bill Snyder as a coach. He's probably had plenty of chances to leave for bigger and better things but he's decided to stay there. As a result, he consistently fields a team that probably has no business playing with the big boys but does.
Here's a great article from several ...
| Tiger Rant|| Anyone else need a printed roster during the games? - HoopyD on 9/15/14 at 8:57 am|
We are 3 games in and I still have to look up players from time to time. Case in point.......#47 Moore was lined up in the backfield fairly early in the game. I still have no idea who that is.....
This is a really fun team to watch. Waves of talent just flying all over the field. They seem to...

How will any kid growing up today run for political office? Their entire lives are lived out in social media, complete with all of the photos and posts that they will regret someday. That stuff doesn't go away either. Even if they are incredibly careful with what they post, everyone has an idiot "f...
