| LSU Recruiting Board|| Question about Rivals site - Tigerpaul1969 on 2/7/14 at 8:08 pm|
You used to be able to go in the free section of Rivals and get team rankings by position but I'm not seeing it anymore. Did they do away with that or force you to pay for that now?...
| SEC Rant|| A little something for our Aggie brethren - Tigerpaul1969 on 2/5/14 at 10:49 pm|
If t.u. was in the SEC, their recruiting class would be ranked 10th, just behind Ole Miss and just ahead of Kentucky. If they were in the SEC West, their class would rank 6th.
This is based on 247, which I believe is the best current recruiting service....
| SEC Rant|| Mississippi State is so close every year - Tigerpaul1969 on 12/20/13 at 2:24 pm|
They seem to have the recipe for doing well in the SEC. A solid running game. Good up front, especially on defense. Typically pretty good secondary.
They were the only team in the SEC in 2011 to fight LSU and Alabama for 4 quarters. This year, the combined record of the teams they lost to was...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| How many spots does Bama have left? - Tigerpaul1969 on 12/13/13 at 10:24 am|
Has anyone looked into this? I'm posting here because of the fact that Bama is in on at least four players that we are on off the top of my head: Malik McDowell, LF, Tony Brown and Lorenzo Carter. They have 24 commitments currently, and there was supposed to be a hard and fast limit in the SEC of...
| Tiger Rant|| We've only played at Bryant-Denny 15 times - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/30/13 at 3:53 pm|
Our overall record there is 9-6.
BDS opened in 1929, and we only played there three times between then and 1988, when the series shifted from its then-home at Legion Field in Birmingham.
Since that 1988 game at BDS, we are 8-4 there. The four losses were in 90, 95, 99 and 09, and what's inter...
| Tiger Rant|| Basketball depth - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/25/13 at 10:14 am|
When was the last time we had this kind of depth on our basketball team?
I seriously think you have to go back to the Dale Brown era to find it. Brady's teams were hampered early with scholarship restrictions, and we had some great front line talent on some of his teams, but we never had guys wh...
| SEC Rant|| Saban has a great chance to win titles at three schools - Tigerpaul1969 on 9/20/13 at 10:41 am|
I think this would be the biggest lure to go to Texas. Let's face it, with their resources and state talent and playing in a fairly weak Big 12, he could easily win a title and possibly multiple titles there. His legacy, which is already as one of the greats of all time, would go through the roof ...
| Tiger Rant|| Josh Reed still has the record - Tigerpaul1969 on 9/16/13 at 4:10 pm|
Most receiving yards against Alabama in a single game - 293 yards.
Rohan threw for 528 yards....
| Tiger Rant|| Is it that important to blow people out? - Tigerpaul1969 on 9/2/13 at 2:28 pm|
It seems to me blow outs can mask weaknesses far more than hard fought wins. I'm reading a lot of pundits who say that LSU fans should be worried that we dominated but were only up by 3 with 6 mins to go. I think these types of wins both demonstrate the character of your team and build character. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Props to Elliott Porter - Tigerpaul1969 on 9/2/13 at 9:40 am|
All we heard all offseason was how Pocic was going to end up starting at center, and Porter quietly quarterbacked the O line in a great performance especially in pass protection. A true thing of beauty. For some reason, the media chose him as the face of the ugliness of grey shirting a couple of y...
| Tiger Rant|| O-line looked special last night - Tigerpaul1969 on 9/1/13 at 9:03 am|
I was there last night and the O-line really stood out to me. Other than being a bit weak at first blocking the run, they were absolutely outstanding. On passes, they were a brick wall. Then, when the running game got going, they were opening up huge holes. Landry and Beckham (yes he had two hug...
| Tiger Rant|| Media hypocrisy abounds - Tigerpaul1969 on 8/6/13 at 9:18 am|
I refuse to provide an audience for any of these sanctimonious morons who claim some type of football expertise because they've been sniffing jocks since they were in 8th grade. Will any of these self-righteous dickbags be around to defend Les to the administration and fans when we travel to Tuscal...
| Tiger Rant|| Is this the year we lose to Mississippi State? - Tigerpaul1969 on 7/30/13 at 1:33 pm|
This game really concerns me. They have played us really tough in Starkville the last two times we've played there (including the miracle goal line stand in 2009), and it's sandwiched between games at Georgia and against Florida. And, of course, we've won 13 in a row and 19 out of 20.
This one ...
| SEC Rant|| Spinoff thread-What SEC team would you least mind losing to? - Tigerpaul1969 on 7/24/13 at 10:25 am|
So, if your team went 11-1, which SEC team on the schedule would it sting the least that you lost to. For me, I would have to say Mississippi State....

Is that a bad omen?...
| Tiger Rant|| What's the story with Evan Washington? - Tigerpaul1969 on 4/10/13 at 1:18 pm|
Is he going to get any PT this year? I really had high hopes for this guy and he's been snakebitten with injuries. Most projected depth charts I've seen don't even have him listed in the two-deep....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| National presence - Tigerpaul1969 on 2/6/13 at 12:21 pm|
Yes, I know we got 0 commits from Texas, but check this out (based on Rivals rankings only):
We got the highest ranked QB from California and Georgia.
We got the highest ranked DL from Tennessee, Nebraska and New Jersey.
We got the highest ranked OL from Illinois and Georgia.

| SEC Rant|| Kevin Sumlin=Larry Coker? - Tigerpaul1969 on 1/10/13 at 3:25 pm|
Coker came in and inherited a bunch of talent and won immediately but the program went south after the last of the Butch Davis talent left the program.
Will the same fate befall Sumlin? Obviously, Sherman could recruit given that he recruited ALL of the contributing members of this year's team.
| Tiger Rant|| Do Les and staff get any credit for managing all the attrition etc.? - Tigerpaul1969 on 11/26/12 at 10:08 am|
I mean, disregarding all of the key losses to the NFL in the offseason, I'm talking about all of the losses of key starters in August from an already young team. We lost perhaps the nation's best defensive player and a top punt returner in a very publicized way one week before the season started, t...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| The numbers game - Tigerpaul1969 on 11/14/12 at 10:37 am|
Has anyone done an analysis of exactly how many recruits LSU can take in this class? I know there's been some discussion that some of the EE's will count against last year's numbers, and I'm assuming so will Avery Johnson. What about the other casualties from last year's class? How does D'haquill...
| SEC Rant|| SEC in the championship game - Tigerpaul1969 on 11/12/12 at 1:30 pm|
I love how all the pundits presume that the three unbeatens ahead of the SEC crowd will all remain unbeaten. Have none of these people ever learned from history? Who thought before Saturday that A&M would beat unbeaten Bama? Not even A&M fans thought it possible.
Notre Dame has to play at USC....
| SEC Rant|| Texas A&M v. Missouri - Tigerpaul1969 on 11/12/12 at 1:23 pm|
Why is everyone assuming the Aggies win this one? Seems like A&M has played better on the road than at home this year. And, Mizzou has owned A&M recently (in College Station). Plus, Mizzou has actually had a ton of experience defending the type of offense that A&M runs.
I'm not saying they win...

| Tiger Rant|| 2003 Tigers - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/29/12 at 1:59 pm|
Just remember, the 2003 team, maybe the greatest LSU team of all time, lost to Florida AT HOME 19-7 and did not score any offensive points, with the lone touchdown coming on a Skyler Green return. That was a Ron Zook coached Gator squad, not one of the better teams in Gainesville.
I'm just sayin...
| More Sports Board|| Kansas State keeps grinding - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/28/12 at 9:54 am|
They must get a kick out of all the talk about how great ND is because they just beat OU in Norman when K State was the first team to do it this year snapping that long home winning streak. K State also blasted WVU in Morgantown, obliterated TX Tech and demolished Miami. K State is easily the most...
| Tiger Rant|| Any chance we have some option/read type plays for Bolden v. Bama? - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/23/12 at 10:41 am|
Bolden actually played almost the entire game against Bama last year at Penn State so he is very familiar with their personnel and tendencies. He has tons of game experience so it wouldn't be like bringing someone totally green out there. It would be fairly unexpected so it might take Bama several...

Last night was the most recent example of a defensive back making an interception that hurts their team, but they get patted on the back for doing it.
Trufant from Washington makes the pick at his own 8 yard line on a 4th and 4 play with 1:45 left in the game and Stanford holding onto two timeout...
