| Tiger Rant|| Opening Line: LSU +3 @ Vandy - BayouWolf on 1/23/15 at 2:52 pm|
Somewhat surprised to see us as a 3 point underdog. We've historically played poorly at Vandy and they did play well at UK but was assuming it would eseentially be a pick'em or us as a slight favorite given we've won our last two road games.
What does the rant think?...

Too early to mean much outside of our OOC schedule and performance is respected more than previous years. The WVU win is paying huge dividends and the guys avoided any truly bad losses (Clemson is bad but not horrible...)
| Tiger Rant|| Keith Hornsby respect - BayouWolf on 12/4/14 at 8:41 pm|
Struggled shooting in some games this season but he hit some huge shots including the late 3 to go get the lead. Guy plays 110% every play and is going to be a big part of this team the next 2 seasons. Huge win for the resume. ...

I don't agree but interesting that he may not even start and if he does start or get meaningful snaps it's likely at safety. Link requires insider access. Excerpt is below:
"Mills has very good height for a corner and should continue to fill out his frame. His top-end speed is above-average but n...

Is this old? Haven't seen it discussed but can only hope they aren't doing a black out game...at least not with those jerseys.

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.

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...

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.
