| Tiger Rant|| Joe Lunardi ESPN Bracketology 2/10 update - LSU still in "Last Four In" Group - BayouWolf on 2/10/14 at 10:21 am|
For everybody who seems to think that the UGA loss doomed this teams chances of making the tourney, it would appear you are off base. Plenty of other bubble teams lost too and there is still a month of basketball to be played. You need Insider access to pull up the article but i've copied a brief ...

Too early in the season to mean much but good to see we are getting notoriety and respect. Our early RPI numbers are strong as well. Would be nice to build momentum with a road win at Texas Tech tonight and home win over UAB coming up.

Looks like winning your conference will not be a criteria based on this preliminary article. I'm sure the final version of the proposal/change will be different but I would like to have the conference championship be a requirement. Whats the point of having conferences otherwise.

With 3 straight W's and a legit shot at finising 10-6, I would hope we get at least 9k actual in the PMAC Wednesday night.

Need ESPN Insider to access but LSU has had the hardest schedule in the country since starting conference play.
We all knew the first half of the SEC schedule was brutal but this backs it up. Hopefully we can cap...

Brutally tough stretch in the schedule but I'm proud of how hard this team plays. Could we have won tonight? Sure. That State team is senior laden with more talent, playing at home and ranked 16th and we gad it down 3 with the ball.
I think we will play well and hard against UK and will go 5-3 i...

SportsNation poll on ESPN homepage.
After 105,000+ votes, HB7 has 13% edging Richardson (12%).
Obviously, HB7 won't take it home but would love to see him beat Richardson just to watch the Bammers bitch and moan some more.

| Tiger Rant|| Bulletin Board material for BCS CG - BayouWolf on 11/19/11 at 10:09 am|
LSU won't need any further motivation in the BCS CG, but when we play either Bama or Oregon, there will be no shortage of quotes/video clips/etc of their players and coaches claiming "we outplayed LSU", "the better team didn't win", "We are still the best team in the country", etc.
The hype video...

Not always easy to see after a 40pt drubbing in Rupp, but we have talented young guards in Stringer and Turner. I can see Turner being a slightly better Antonio Hudson over his 4 years here.

Like many of the LSU faithful, i dissected and analyzed the game to death on saturday night and sunday. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Everybody on this board undoubtedly has a fierce loyalty to LSU and the passion is what makes Tiger Stadium a great place to watch a game, and hell for opponents.
That being said, you don't see a lot of optimistic/positive topics on this board. Most are based on worries about a variety of thin...
