| 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...

Have not seen anything confirming one way or another...
| 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|| A very telling set of stats from the Ole Miss loss - Buda on 10/21/13 at 12:18 pm|
3rd and 10 at MISS 49 Bo Wallace pass complete to Ja-Mes Logan for 13 yards to the LSU 38 for a 1ST down.
3rd and 9 at LSU 37 Bo Wallace pass complete to Vince Sanders for 16 yards to the LSU 21 for a 1ST down.

| 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...
