Kevin Gausman ranked #23 among baseball's top 100 prospects - TigerCard
According to ESPN... Zack Lee was ranked #75, for what it's worth. Here's the scoop on Gausman: It wasn't the ideal year for Gausman in 2013. He probably should have been left in the minors for a few more months before he was given so much as a spot start in the majors, where he struggled over ...

Grimes and Cam Robinson - TigerCard
I don't recall seeing anything about this, and I'm just curious. (I apologize if it has been discussed already.) I seem to recall some chatter a while back that Robinson was still somewhat attracted to LSU, even after his verbal to Bama. IF that was the case, and IF he wasn't an EE, does anyone t...

CFN's Fiutak on LSU's offense - TigerCard
In his weekly "Final Thoughts" before the weekend's game, Pete Fiutak (one of the best college football writers in the business) had this to say about this year's offense AND how close we've been over the past two years. "I’m not going to argue if you want to make a case that LSU is the best team...

Gausman ranked 19th best MLB prospect by ESPN - TigerCard
This was on a list of the fifty best MLB prospects. He is ranked 19th now, and was ranked 26th at the beginning of the season, so his stock has gone up some, at least in the writer's opinion. Here's the comment on Gausman: "In hindsight, Gausman came to the majors too soon, but it doesn't tell ...

Pat Forde argues for a nine-game SEC schedule - TigerCard
[quote]There is no longer a viable excuse for the rich not to play a nine-game conference schedule. The SEC mansion needs quality competitive furnishings, not knock-offs from the FCS thrift store. The Pac-12 is doing it now. So is the 10-team Big 12, which doesn't have a title game and doesn't need...

Cleveland fans on Mingo and LSU - TigerCard
I was driving home last night listening to the Cleveland ESPN station. The commentators and the fans who called in were pretty psyched about the Browns getting Mingo. Some would have preferred Dee Milner (wanted to pair him with Joe Hayden in the backfield), but the prevailing opinion was that Min...

I've been thinking about this since the end of football season, but haven't had a chance to post anything about it before now.

I knew we were a little young this year, but this was surprising. - TigerCard
Rabalais had this litle factoid in his article this morning. "LSU has played 15 true freshmen this season, [b]more than any other FBS team[/b]." This undoubtedly is a one of the major reasons the team has struggled a bit out of the gate, and also might suggest that we will get better as many ...

Question about our receivers - TigerCard

At halftime, the first thing the studio analysts said was that we didn't have a Tolliver or Randall out there who you c...

Were we better off because we lost that first fumble at Auburn? - TigerCard
Don't know if anyone else has discussed this, but I wonder if we ended up better off for having lost that first fumble, since it led to the safety...which led to us getting the ball back with a short field...which led to our only TD. Of course, one could argue that had we scored on that first d...
