| Tiger Rant|| Les Miles = Sausage - Buda on 1/1/14 at 9:42 pm|
I've learned something watching Les Miles and LSU for the last 9 years: With Miles, you have to approach a football game and season like a good sausage - look only at the end product, not what it looked like as it was being made.
Every year and every game, he does things that make any knowledgea...

| Tiger Rant|| Mickey Johnson? - Buda on 10/9/13 at 12:20 pm|
With all the talk abou tthe lack of depth at DT, I wonder what the deal is with Mickey Johnson. Is he just not good enough to see more PT?
| Tiger Rant|| Clock and Helmet issue at the end of the first half - Buda on 9/3/13 at 10:35 am|
Ok, here it is:
If a player loses his helmet during a play, he must come out the game or the team must call a time out - unless there is a clock stoppage anyway (like out of bounds or incomplete pass) in which case he can play the next play without having to take a timeout. Also, if the ref dete...
| Tiger Rant|| Les Miles - Buda on 9/1/13 at 9:27 pm|
More wins in the last 8 years than ANY coach (including Saban) with the only one ahead of him being Peterson from Boise.
Higher winning percentage of ANY LSU coach ever.
42 straight non conference wins.
2 SEC championships
Played in 2 national championship games
| Tiger Rant|| I love ranters... - Buda on 6/19/13 at 4:01 pm|
...who honestly belive that they could coach better than Manieri or Miles. Both of these guys have a national championship and a few SEC championships under their belts. They've been doing this full time for their whole lives.
And in this world of great coaches, both are unquestionably at the v...
| Tiger Rant|| Congratulations to LSU Baseball Team!! - Buda on 6/19/13 at 8:50 am|
I know it didn't end like we all wanted, but congratulations on a great season: SEC Champions, Regional Champs, Super-regional Champs, first trip to CWS in 4 years, record number of wins.
Great season, fellas! On behalf of all fans of LSU...
See ya next year........
| Tiger Rant|| Here's one that bugs me in baseball... - Buda on 6/17/13 at 12:39 pm|
I know most will not agree, but I do not and never will understand why hitters don't have the green light on 3-0. The pitcher is bearing down to throw a strike and he's not trying to go low or outside. That ball is coming right down the pike.
I'm not saying full swing away - tell batters to swi...
| Tiger Rant|| Miles should come out and address the departures - Buda on 1/10/13 at 8:54 am|
He needs to have a press conference and explain why/how this is happening and what he plans to do to keep this from happening every year.
Every big-time program has juniors that can come out. And many top-level juniors come out every year.
But to have virtually an entire senior class abandon ...
| Tiger Rant|| Thought about a possible OC - Buda on 1/4/13 at 10:50 am|
I know we're not necessarily in the market for a new OC.
And this is just an off-the-cuff idea, but...
Mario Cristobal just got released as the HC at FIU. His offenses were always creative. He is a young and energetic former QB and offensive-minded coach. he is especially good with QBs.
| Tiger Rant|| Great words about Tiger Stadium on ESPN - Buda on 11/5/12 at 12:06 pm|
Tiger Stadium on a Saturday night: Man, what a place to watch a college football game. I can still hear the roar from the crowd in my ears. Bear Bryant once said that being in Tiger Stadium was like being inside a drum. He nailed it, because there’s nothing else like it in coll...
| Tiger Rant|| A few "MUSTs" for an LSU victory.... - Buda on 10/31/12 at 12:41 pm|
To win, LSU MUST:
1) Score early on offense. We MUST establish early that our offense can move the ball and at least get 3 (preferably 7) on one of our first two drives. If we let their defense get psyched up early and our O goes into sleep mode, it could be another long day offensively.
| Tiger Rant|| We need a defensive or ST score this week - Buda on 10/12/12 at 10:57 am|
I think with one big defensive or ST play - preferrably a scoring play, we can win.
We also need the O to stay on the field a lot and not get many 3 and outs. And to put up 10-14 points.
Our D will hold down Lattimore and company. If we can get 17-21 points somehow, we should win....
| Tiger Rant|| How many hits does SB have? - Buda on 6/10/12 at 9:07 pm|
through 5+ innings?
| Tiger Rant|| Where is the hitting? - Buda on 6/10/12 at 9:04 pm|
These pitchers are good, but I'm amazed at the lack of hitting from the Tigers
| Tiger Rant|| Hit the ball down and hard dammmittt!! - Buda on 6/10/12 at 8:46 pm|
Quit trying to hit the HR. We need base runners!...
| Tiger Rant|| This is just a very good team we are playing - Buda on 6/10/12 at 8:38 pm|
They hit like LSU USED TO hit. Every guy is a threat. Doesn't matter if they're up or down in the count.
We need our hitters (Katz, Rhymes, Nola, etc.) to step up. Don't need homers. Need base runners....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Let's be realistic... - Buda on 2/1/12 at 1:30 pm|
Many of you on this board rag each other as being too optimistic or two pessimistic, so let's look at what this year's recruiting class really is:
1) We got a top 20 recruting class. That's obviosuly good, but not up to the standard we've gotten used to over the last few years.
2) In that cl...
| Tiger Rant|| Step back and think for a minute - Buda on 1/11/12 at 3:45 pm|
We lost to Bama in the National Championship game. Our coach and starting QB (indeed the whole team) looked bad.
We went 13-1 - arguably the greatest season in LSU history. And one of the greatest in college football history. even the loss to Bama willbe historic because of the great...
| Tiger Rant|| Believe it or not.... - Buda on 9/1/11 at 3:52 pm|
I think this year's secondary will actually be BETTER than they were last year with PP.
Mathieu will have an unbelievable year. He will even eclipse Claiborne - because people will not throw at Claiborne as much.
Claiborne will have a great year, stun people with his athleticism at teh combin...
| Tiger Rant|| People calling for Jefferson's head... - Buda on 2/10/11 at 5:01 pm|
...are just as follish as those calling for Miles' head in the middle of the season.
The same thing is true of Jefferson now as was true of Miles then: he is the best QB we have. And you don't replace him unless there is someone better.
Mettenberger is an unknown. Until we see him at practic...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Where are the LBs?? - Buda on 2/2/11 at 7:25 pm|
Once again, no really big LB recruits. We're hurting in that area!...
| Tiger Rant|| Observation #3: We're stillin pretty good shape - Buda on 10/25/10 at 9:04 am|
All the above being said, this team (with veryu poor QB play and very poor on-field coaching) is still 7-1, #12 in the country, and stillhas a shot at an SEC title.
Somebody's doing something right.
Don't give up yet.......
| Tiger Rant|| Observation #2: A good coaching staff/offense we are NOT - Buda on 10/25/10 at 9:02 am|
So, we get the ball, tied at 17 with about 5 and a half minutes left - in the biggest game of the season - on national TV - with momentum going our way. All we need is a drive for a TD to get the W and propel us to instant national prominence.
The mark of a truly quality coaching staff would be ...
| Tiger Rant|| Observation #1: Jarett Lee is NOT the answer. - Buda on 10/25/10 at 8:59 am|
I know many of you keep calling for Lee and wondering why he's not in there more or starting over JJ. But take a close look athis play at Auburn and you'll see why. Plain and simple: he's scared of getting hit. He gets happy feet as soon as he gets a rush. He doesn't set his feet and throw. Bot...
| Tiger Rant|| For all calling for Miles' head... - Buda on 9/6/10 at 4:10 pm|
Still: best 5-year winning percentage of any LSU coach - EVER. Sitting at 1-0 against a ranked team. Ranked in top 25. On national TV regularly. Top 10 recruiting class virtually evry year since he's been here....
Look, I think he makes a lot of poor coaching decisions. Crowton consistently ...
| Tiger Rant|| For all those calling for Miles' head... - Buda on 11/23/09 at 9:47 pm|
Yes, I hate that stupiod loss.
Yes I hate going 7-8 in th elast 15 SEC games.
yes we should do better with the athletes we have.
But, four things make me want to give Miles some loyalty:
1) He genrally seems to be a good guy. makes bad calls in games sometimes, but ALWAYS owns up to it...
