| LSU Recruiting Board|| Caveat Emptor for the Recruit - "Program on the Rise" - Mike Linebacker on 2/5/13 at 12:16 pm|
The recruitment of Robert Nkemdiche has been pretty interesting. It reminds me of the recruitment of Sam Montgomery. True, Montgomery wasn't the #1 overall recruited, but he was very highly rated. Like Nkemdiche, Montgomery for whatever reason wasn't interested in his home state schools. He flir...

| Tiger Rant|| Enough griping...legit theoretical football question - Mike Linebacker on 1/3/13 at 10:42 pm|
Oregon wore out Kansas State with hurry up. We traditionally wear out people with power. What if we started doing both next year: hurry up power football as opposed to hurry up spread. If defenses get gassed by tempo and worn done by power, it seems to me to stand to reason that the combination coul...

Speaking of Twitter, someone at work told me that Boone has some tweets today implying he has made a decision, followed by his mind is made up. I don't tweet but has anyone heard any issue with him or is this another chicken or beef lunch decision that people are blowing out of proportion?...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Does Urban Meyer Going to OSU Impact Kiel? - Mike Linebacker on 11/29/11 at 11:14 pm|
Seems like everything is going awesome with Kiel but with him being from the midwest and tOSU inking Urban, is there a concern we'll lose out on this kid?
I would imagine that the prospect of sanctions and the loss of talent from tOSU plus LSU being pretty set for next year and beyond would sway ...
| Tiger Rant|| SEC Championship - Mike Linebacker on 11/29/11 at 1:15 pm|
LSU has been playing football in the SEC for 79 years. We have only won the conference 11 times.
Saturday is a BIG DEAL.
I'm pretty sure (at least I hope) that the team gets this and will not be caught dwelling on who we might play in a game 40 days from now. But the fanbase sure is. And th...

| Tiger Rant|| The Official We Will Beat Whoever Is Given the #2 Rank - Mike Linebacker on 11/26/11 at 9:46 pm|
I don't care if it is Bama. I relish beating them twice. It won't be as close this time (we will have the home crowd, we are better on offense now, we won't leave #3 uncovered inexplicably).
I don't care if it is Oklahoma State. We've beaten two other higher powered offenses. They have no defens...

Was traveling today and missed the Iran/Iraq War (aka the Iron Bowl). Did Gary opine on whether a rematch was justifiable?
| Tiger Rant|| How Loud Can You Be? - Mike Linebacker on 11/25/11 at 7:59 am|
Les Miles has urged all Tiger fans to be loud. So have several players. LSU fans demand outstanding performances from our players. We demand outstanding performances from our coaches. Today, we fans need to do our part and make Tiger Stadium very inhospitable to the Arkansas Razorbacks. It need...
| Tiger Rant|| Fans Need to Relax - Mike Linebacker on 11/13/11 at 8:57 am|
First sign of adversity (in a 33 point blowout) and you all get nervous again.
It was obvious that the team was flat emotionally and it is obvious as to why.
I think Les used the game to experiment a bit.
I think Lee played very well in his one real series. I think JJ played decently alt...
| Tiger Rant|| missed FGs - Mike Linebacker on 11/6/11 at 6:52 am|
How long were they? The first one was a makeable one. But I don't think any of the other three were high percentage shots. In the airport so if someone knows the distances, please respond.
If I'm a Bama fan, I wouldn't blame the kicker (except for the first one). I blame the head coach for decid...
| Tiger Rant|| Temple! - Mike Linebacker on 11/5/11 at 10:05 am|
Shows stats are meaningless when you don't play the same level of competition.
Temple is ranked higher than LSU in scoring defense. Bama, Temple than LSU.
BTW, Temple, like Bama, played their toughest competition against Penn State...

| Tiger Rant|| Perspective on the Situation - Mike Linebacker on 10/19/11 at 9:03 pm|
I actually went on twitter to see what all was being said. The fans need to understand that the players have a tight bond. Moreover, these are guys who have been star athletes with hangers on their whole life. They have lots of experience where the same people praising them one week and tearing t...
| Tiger Rant|| The backjudge is the culprit - Mike Linebacker on 10/9/11 at 11:02 pm|
On Wing's TD, neither the line judge nor the field judge were fussed by Wing's excitement. It was the backjudge. The same douche who is seen yelling at Ware post-TD is the guy who threw the flag. Bet he has a degree from Bama or Auburn.

I'm going to the Kentucky game this weekend and have a shite ton of work to do. With the announcement that JJ's suspension is lifted, the Rant has now become unreadable. So now one of my main productivity distractors will not impact me on Thursday or Friday.
Oh c'mon, you have to find silver l...

In a break from the hysteria over Jefferson's reinstatement, I have a question on pregame logistics.
Taking my 8 and 5 year olds to the game Saturday. What time do you think the team and band will come down the hill to enter Tiger Stadium. Figured the kids would like that. Isn't it usually about...
| Tiger Rant|| Poor tackling - Mike Linebacker on 9/26/11 at 9:11 am|
Enough about the 463 passing yards. The defensive problem from this game that is actually applicable to future games against SEC offenses is the really poor tackling by our DBs and LBs. Claiborne had a pretty bad game (which was erased by his KO return). Only Mathieu tackled well.

I have to say, the WVU posters this week are top notch. They are giving the Va Tech guys from 2007 a run for their money. They have thick skin yet defend their team passionately.
Kudos to you guys.
I wish I could go to Morgantown this weekend, but alas too much work. To the Tiger fans who go...
