Yes, the man has done well for LSU, the winningest coach in LSU history yada yada yada...(cue insults for not focusing only on Miles' record) but eventually, his time here will end, and I for one will welcome it.
I am an older guy who grew up on LSU football in the 70's, but I'm ready to see LSU...
| Tiger Rant|| Credit UGA's O line...I know our D needs work, but give credit where it's due. - roscoe mike on 9/29/13 at 9:48 am|
With all the D bashing going on this morning, and I'm not saying it's unwarranted, does anyone recognize that UGA's O-line is beastly??? And for that matter their D-line wasn't bad either yesterday...They were the more physical team on the LOS overall...not by much, but it was the difference in the ...

| Tiger Rant|| The Key to the Success of the 2013 Football Season will be 3rd Down... - roscoe mike on 7/5/13 at 3:59 pm|
I'm liking the fact we have an experienced, senior QB and a fresh OC. I'm hoping the combination of Mett, Cam, and catching the football will result in a high 3rd down completion percentage. If this happens, this team will be equipped to beat anybody.
The D will be plenty talented enough with th...
| Tiger Rant|| Thank You 2013 LSU Baseball Players and Coaches! - roscoe mike on 6/19/13 at 9:21 pm|

Thanks again for a great season!
Coach Mainieri, you have done a great job with these young men and I am ...
| Tiger Rant|| Is CPM the best coach in college baseball? - roscoe mike on 5/25/13 at 6:41 pm|
It's very impressive how he's managed his pithing staff and dealt with injuries. Considering he followed in the footsteps of a living legend and failed successor, he has kept LSU baseball at dynasty status in an era where the competition is tougher than ever.
And what has Notre Dame baseball do...

| More Sports Board|| Tiger Woods will win a major this year. - roscoe mike on 1/27/13 at 10:50 pm|
Maybe two. I know it's early, but the three things that make him great appear to be back: power, mid-irons, and short game.
It would be some dramatic theater if Tiger and Rory lock up on a Sunday final paring in a major. ...
| O-T Lounge|| Any Samsung Galaxy S3/former iPhone owners (Verizon)? - roscoe mike on 1/24/13 at 8:01 am|
Thinking of switching from the i to S3.
I heavily use GPS apps. Is the S3 the same, better, or worse than iPhone in GPS functionality?
And, how difficult / aggravating is it to extricate one's self from iTunes?

| LSU Recruiting Board|| La. recruits signed by Bama from 2007-2013. - roscoe mike on 1/17/13 at 11:17 am|
With the commitment of Tim Williams to Bama, I began wondering how many La. recruits have committed to Bama since Saban took that job. This is not meant to be an indictment of CLM, just an observation of the facts.

Time to let it all go.....ie: CLM is terrible, CLM is the best ever, Bama and Saban blah blah blah, ESPN and the SEC hate LSU, and so forth and so on.
The truth in any matter usually lies somewhere between the two extremes, so in the midst of all the opinions and assesments about the state of LS...

| Tiger Rant|| Will a 3-5 loss rebuilding type season be acceptable in 2013? - roscoe mike on 1/6/13 at 10:56 am|
With the loss of personnel on D growing and the rise of power in the SEC West, it is getting more and more unlikely we can contend for any championships next season.
I am ok with this if improvement is obvious as the season progresses. ...
| Tiger Rant|| If Les is willing, is it time to revamp the offensive system? - roscoe mike on 1/5/13 at 11:49 am|
The up tempo, spread out the defense type systems, ala Oregon, aTm and others, works and is exciting to watch. There are many variations and it doesn't mean abandoning the running game. Even some NFL teams are incorporating this into their schemes.
With next season being Mett's last, and the pla...
| Tiger Rant|| Will LSU ever have a starting QB in the NFL again? - roscoe mike on 1/3/13 at 9:12 am|
Seeing RG III, Luck, and Russell Wilson lead their respective teams to the playoffs in their rookie seasons, it makes me wonder if we'll ever see something like that from an LSU QB. ...
| Tiger Rant|| The missing ingredient for the O all these years is "rhythm". - roscoe mike on 1/1/13 at 12:47 pm|
A good rhythm is the best way a coach can help his QB during a game, which is accomplished with sensible play calling.
Of course there are times, when a good D just won't allow the offense to establish any rhythm. But even against poor defense, the times are few and far between that we see any t...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| How much longer can Brees play @ an elite level? - roscoe mike on 12/9/12 at 5:30 pm|
Not saying he can't anymore. I'm throwing this season out due to not having S. Payton. Maybe Drew wins MVP next season. Who knows. Just saying his performances the last few weeks make you consider his run won last forever.
What's the strategy going forward? Is Chase Daniel the answer? (I don't ...
| SEC Rant|| Congrats Bama and UGA....Great Game!! - roscoe mike on 12/1/12 at 7:09 pm|
This is why SEC football is the best, including the NFL.
Congrats Bama on winning the SEC. You earned it.
UGA, you have no reason to hang your head. We'll all try again next season along with you.
P.S. Fan bases insulting each other really detracts from the fun of football season. ...

I say yes. If there's anything left in their tank, they will muster it. Reminds me of Pitt @ W. Virgina last game of the season in Morgantown in 2007. And it sure seems like the gumps don't even know they have a game between now and UGA. Sounds like the perfect recipe for disaster. WDE!!!...
