| Tiger Rant|| For those who don't think underclassmen should leave - Buda on 1/1/15 at 11:03 am|
People keep saying they cannot understand why a junior or 3Y Sophomore would leave early. Let me put it to you like this:
Suppose you are at LSU majoring in engineering. And you are such a good engineer that, in the middle of your junior year, the best engineering company in the world, or NASA,...
| Tiger Rant|| Tack-ul-ing! - Buda on 10/7/14 at 9:36 am|
Folks, you can complain all day about the defensive schemes and in-game calls, but my observation is that the main problem is a lack of tackling. This team is very poor at tackling. Is that a coaching problem? Is it youth? Is it lack of strength conditioning? I don't know. But even more than b...
| Tiger Rant|| Tight Ends.... - Buda on 10/7/14 at 8:21 am|
Seems to me when you have a QB that is raw and needs some safety-blanket pass plays, you put in a few short passes to big tight ends who can use their bodies to shield a defender and make the catch - even if the ball is not perfectly thrown. Also, tight end quick-release plays develop more quickly ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Basketball Recruit Ray Ksongo....? - Buda on 8/15/14 at 7:33 am|
Anybody know anything about what's going on with this guy? I hear LSU has a shot at a late 2014 commitment from him and he's 6-8 and very athletic.
Appreciate any insights.......
| Tiger Rant|| Don't read this if you're stupid... - Buda on 7/1/14 at 9:58 am|
Here's something for all you "brilliant" football analysts to chew on:
I see all these anti-Les Miles fans out there that say stuff like "If we don't win at least two national champioships with all this talent, then Miles should be fired." So let's break down that logic:
First, such a stateme...
| Tiger Rant|| Observation about LSU Baseball - Buda on 4/18/14 at 7:35 pm|
We don't have ANY "scare the crap out of you" hitters any more. Seems like we're full of slap-hitting speed guys.
Wasn't long ago when LSU put batter after batter at the plate that intimidated the hell out of pitchers and scared the crap out of the opposing coach.
I understand that college ba...

| 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...

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 ...

I know we're not necessarily in the market for a new OC.

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 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....
