| SEC Rant|| Longest streak of being bad in a sport - HoopyD on 12/3/13 at 10:19 am|
Which SEC team has the longest streak of being bad in either football, basketball or baseball?
The one that comes to mind is Auburn in basketball (doesn't seem like they've had a good team since the Chris Porter days). Who am I not thinking of?...

I vote Murray. He basically had to carry the offense for long stretches of the season.
2nd choice would be Tre Mason. ...

In the pre-season, ESPN compiled a list of the top 25 players in the SEC for 2013. The list was as follows:
No. 1: J. Clowney, DE, South Carolina, Jr

| Tiger Rant|| Exceeded expectations / Fell short of expectations - HoopyD on 12/2/13 at 7:30 am|
Which player exceeded your expectations for 2013 and which fell short?
Exceeded - I'll go with Delahoussaye. Guy was money all year.
Fell short - A Johnson. I thought he'd have a Nick Fairley/Glen Dorsey type year. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Weird year for LSU defense - HoopyD on 12/1/13 at 4:45 pm|
A subpar LSU defense shut down one of the nation's premier passing offenses (A&M) and rushing offenses (Auburn).
How does that happen?...
| SEC Rant|| Illegal receiver down the field - HoopyD on 12/1/13 at 4:38 pm|
Tell me about this rule. Every time Florida would run the "jump pass" they would have lineman run blocking down the field. When Marshall threw the game tying TD, several lineman were down the field.
Do you get 5 yds or so of leeway? I honestly don't know and I'm curious. ...

And I can't think of a more entertaining game than the one that is going to geaux down this Saturday. One of the most dynamic players in college football history will be making his one and only appearance in Tiger Stadium. It will be cool, gray and rainy. The crowd will be hyped as we try to woo ...

True or false?
| Tiger Rant|| Aren't we one loss away from where we thought we would be this year? - HoopyD on 11/11/13 at 7:46 am|
The defense suffered major losses from last year and everyone knew this wasn't a championship season. Everyone had at Georgia and at Alabama pencilled in as a loss. The only surprise has been Ole Miss; and some poor decisions by Mett had something to do with that.

| Tiger Rant|| Tell me about Alabama's defense - HoopyD on 11/4/13 at 8:43 am|
Statistically, they are one of the best in the nation but they don't seem to be riddled with NFL talent like usual.
Admittedly, I haven't watched them closely this year. What's their strengths? weaknesses?...

| SEC Rant|| Am I the only person that is glad Marshall Henderson is in the SEC? - HoopyD on 10/29/13 at 11:32 am|
He's the guy that everyone loves to hate. He embraces his role as a villan and taunts the crowd. He's a personality in a SEC sport that deparately needs more attention and enthusiasm.
I could watch the gif of him taunting the Auburn student section all day long. Can't wait for him to come ...

| Tiger Rant|| What are our matchup advantages vs Alabama? - HoopyD on 10/28/13 at 9:49 am|
I'm guessing we like our WRs vs. their DBs but Saban has 2 weeks to come up with a scheme to take away Landry and Beckham as options. Do they double cover both and man up everywhere else?
Having a reliable third option in the passing game would really be nice now....

50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s themed parties would be easy calls. You could easily pick out something that everyone would identify with that decade.
What about the 00s? What would it be?
*inbefore 1800's and 1900's. ...

70s - Staying Alive - Bee Gees

00's - no idea. That decade really didn't have a feel. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Is the Ole Miss loss bad news for Bama? - HoopyD on 10/22/13 at 9:06 am|
LSU will have nothing to lose, will want to prove that it is better than the team failed to show up at Ole Miss, and will want to spoil Bama's title hopes.

Anyone who has ever played sports knows that strange, unexplainable things happen from time to time.
There are nights when a Buster Douglas dominates a Mike Tyson. When a ULM waltzes into Tuscaloosa and beats a Nick Saban coached Alabama. When a Princeton beats a Georgetown to advance in the N...
| SEC Rant|| A&M vs. teams with a pulse - HoopyD on 10/17/13 at 8:48 am|
In A&M's games vs. teams with a pulse, they have yet to put anyone away convincingly
Alabama - 42-49
Arkansas - 45-33
Ole Miss - 41-38
Heck, even Rice put up points. 52-31
So far, their best win is a loss in which last minute scores made it look closer than it was.
Are they overranked o...

Recently, we have played Ole Miss the week following or two weeks following the Alabama game. The Alabama game is such an emotional slugfest that really takes a lot out of the team.
Do you think that is one of the reasons why the OM/LSU game is typically close? Does playing OM prior to the Al...

And figure out how to compete with it.
Attendance issues and early exits aren't unique to LSU, It's conference, if not, nation wide. The issue, at its core, is that watching on tv is just a vastly superior experience now. HD quality, large screens, better angles, commentary.....all add up to a...

This Saturady, we will recognize the 2003 national championship team. One of the more memorable games during that season was the win at home over Georgia. While Skyler's TD was the most memorable moment, the one I won't forget is when DJ Shockley replaced an injured David Greene.
