When their Heisman QB is ruled ineligible, their class is going to collapse.

| Pelicans Talk|| Darrell Williams in the Advocate thinks Kirilenko would fit - GOP_Tiger on 7/1/13 at 8:04 am|
Obviously, Evans seems to be the choice right now. If that doesn't work, should we consider AK47? He's old but played well last season. With him and AD, we might lead the league in blocked shots. What do you think?
| Pelicans Talk|| 2nd Unit Next Year Will Kick Butt - GOP_Tiger on 6/27/13 at 10:11 pm|
Let's say for now that we keep Vasquez and pick up a starting SF with our 4 million in cap that we have left. Our 2nd unit next year is:
PG - Vasquez
SG - Rivers
SF - Aminu
PF - Anderson
C - Smith
That's really a great 2nd unit. It will be a lot of fun to watch that group come off the be...

I had a good chuckle at the thread that this is somehow Roger Goodell's payback against Drew Brees for the CBA negotiations or something, because there's probably no one happier about this situation than Tom Condon.
The one thing that Benson absolutely cannot allow to happen is for Drew Brees to ...

| Tiger Rant|| Biggest difference this year = Steve Kragthorpe - GOP_Tiger on 11/25/11 at 7:03 pm|
The throws that Jordan Jefferson made today, and the improvement in Jarrett Lee that got us our first eight wins---there's no way that this team is 12-0 without the dramatic improvement in our QBs.

Here's the list: [link=(http://espn.go.com/nfl/players?college=103)]LINK[/link]
For best player, I'm going to argue for Kyle Williams, even though he just got injured and is done for the rest of the season. It's hard to say who the biggest star is, but I might go with Joseph Addai just because ...

I'm trying to plan my daughter's birthday party for November 19th. I'd like to plan it for the afternoon, but I'm worried about the game time.

Amidst all the adulation for T-Bob Hebert for "saving" LSU by having the sense to snap the ball, I am going to present a contrary viewpoint -- that he blew it and nearly cost LSU the game.
The play was going to be a pass play. There are trips left and Terrence Toliver is in the slot and headed f...
| Tiger Rant|| It's Gary Crowton's fault for the mess at the end of the game - GOP_Tiger on 10/4/10 at 1:59 pm|
I'm not absolving Miles and Jefferson from any blame in the disaster, but the primary responsibility for the disaster rests with Crowton.
It's Crowton's job to call the plays. If he is sending in Jefferson for a running play, then Crowton is responsible for sending Jefferson in with two plays.
