Any chance Valentine gets cleared? - Tigerpaul1969
I mean, in time for the Alabama game. I would assume the folks in Birmingham would want LSU to be at full strength for the big game, right? Given that the NCAA took about a week and a half to clear him, it seems like 10 weeks should be long enough for the nice folks in Alabama (the state, not the ...

Defensive end questions - Tigerpaul1969
Is Bower next man up after Rasco and Hunter? With Neal pitching in on the interior, we don't have that many names left at DE. What about Maclin? Will he see the field? I'm assuming Patterson and Bower are the 2 deep but who comes next? Anyone know anything?...

Mickey Johnson and DT depth - Tigerpaul1969
With QT getting hurt, I hear Herron's name a lot. I also hear Bain, Gilmore and even Valentine as guys that need to step up. Is Mickey not a viable option as a guy with at least some experience in this defense at that position? I never really hear his name mentioned....

Rarely mentioned players who can have a huge impact - Tigerpaul1969
I have two in mind. Evan Washington-I know most seem to think Fanaika has the RG spot locked up, but even if he does, we'll need Evan to step in and not lose a step. I've been expecting a lot from him since we signed him in the 2005 class (yes I know, it just feels like it was that long ago), bu...

Will Auburn really do what they did last year? Who else might? - Tigerpaul1969
Am I the only one who doesn't think Auburn repeats what they did last year? Does anyone not remember: Four games they pulled out of their butts with back-to-back all-timer miracle finishes Blowout loss to LSU Very tight game against Wazzou? There is a fine line between going 12-1 and 7-5, a...

Les Miles in Tiger Stadium - Tigerpaul1969
Les has been head coach for the entirety of the two longest home winning streaks in LSU history: 22 (2009-13) and 19 (2005-07). We're currently at 9 straight, which is 7th on the all time list. The current streak should hit at least 15, depending on what happens against Ole Miss. I will continu...

Question about Rivals site - Tigerpaul1969
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?...

A little something for our Aggie brethren - Tigerpaul1969
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. Just sayin. This is based on 247, which I believe is the best current recruiting service....

Mississippi State is so close every year - Tigerpaul1969
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...

How many spots does Bama have left? - Tigerpaul1969
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...

We've only played at Bryant-Denny 15 times - Tigerpaul1969
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...

Basketball depth - Tigerpaul1969
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...

Saban has a great chance to win titles at three schools - Tigerpaul1969
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 ...

Is it that important to blow people out? - Tigerpaul1969
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. ...

Props to Elliott Porter - Tigerpaul1969
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...

O-line looked special last night - Tigerpaul1969
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...

Media hypocrisy abounds - Tigerpaul1969
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...

Is this the year we lose to Mississippi State? - Tigerpaul1969
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 ...

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....
