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....

Yes, I know we got 0 commits from Texas, but check this out (based on Rivals rankings only):

| 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...

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...
| Tiger Rant|| Andy Staples SI Power Rankings/Last year's game v. this year - Tigerpaul1969 on 9/25/12 at 2:09 pm|
So, Andy Staples at SI just came out with his weekly power rankings and dropped us three spots to No. 5. Fine, whatever. We'll get to prove ourselves over the course of the next few weeks after the Towson game. But something he said caught my eye:

I don't give a crap what all the haters say about the ugly win at Jordan-Hare. I'll take it every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Saban had three shots to win there with his LSU squad and NEVER DID IT. I'll bet Florida fans would have taken the win there in 2006 when they won the national ti...
| SEC Rant|| Arkansas and the Saints are eerily similar - Tigerpaul1969 on 9/24/12 at 9:43 am|
Here's what I mean: Two teams with great offenses and quarterbacks and so-so defenses that lost their coaches in the offseason and are now struggling mightily with a band-aid of a coach until the real one comes back. At least JLS provides some comic relief, Arkansas fans.
I guess these situatio...

I think Miles was holding him back to make sure he was 100% for the Auburn game.
He is hungry and is ready to knock some SEC heads.
He'll hold Blue back even if he's OK to make sure he's solid for the stretch run later.
We may see a whole bunch of Jeremy Hill v. Towson in two weeks to give ...

| Tiger Rant|| Has anyone listened to the CBS SEC preview podcast? - Tigerpaul1969 on 8/30/12 at 10:15 am|
It featured Jerry Hinnen, and they went through the SEC talking about "contenders" "maybe contenders" and "pretenders." When talking about the West contenders, they put Bama, LSU and Arky in that category, but Hinnen then went on a 5 minute Bama lovefest about how they are so much better than anyon...

| SEC Rant|| Pick an SEC team other than Bama or LSU who could win it all - Tigerpaul1969 on 6/28/12 at 4:20 pm|
Anyone can go chalk and predict that last year's national champion and last year's SEC champion will battle it out again for a spot in the national title game and either will beat whatever team shows up.
What about ANOTHER team from the SEC that could up and do it this year?
