| Money Talk|| Vanguard Roth IRA Funds - AlexLSU on 10/8/14 at 12:05 pm|
I've done some searching through the different topics covering this in the past, but instead of bumping an old thread, I'm going to start a new one. Little background on me: 25 years old, don't contribute to company retirement because it sucks, no kids. I've got some money set aside as an emergenc...
| Tiger Rant|| Leonard Fournette vs Derrick Henry So Far - AlexLSU on 10/6/14 at 3:11 pm|
Just a little perspective for everyone since Henry was viewed as one of the country's top backs coming into this season:
LF - 66 attempts, 364 yards, 5.5ypc, 4 TDs, long rush of 40 yards, 5 receptions, 88 yards
DH - 70 attempts, 357 yards, 5.1ypc, 2 TDs, long rush of 25 yards, 1 reception, 25 ...
| Tiger Rant|| Diarse & Quinn's Roles Moving Forward - AlexLSU on 9/30/14 at 9:28 am|
I think it's pretty clear to everyone that Dural and Dupre are the main targets on this team due to their size and leaping ability. However, I think we'd all like to see the ball distributed more to the guys underneath. Jennings really locked into Dural, and while Harris seems to favor Dupre, he d...
| SEC Rant|| Les Miles is 7-2 Against Auburn - AlexLSU on 9/29/14 at 10:28 am|
Conversely, Auburn is 2-7 against Les Miles. If Auburn wins on Saturday, then in 2015, then in 2016, then in 2017, and then in 2018, Miles will be .500 against the paper tigers. I'm not a college football aficionado or anything, but I'm pretty sure that 2-7 qualifies as being another team's bitch....
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Thoughts on Flex? - AlexLSU on 9/18/14 at 9:16 am|
.5 PPR, here's my options:
RB - Bradshaw @ Jax
RB - Miller vs KC
RB - Gerhart vs Indy :yack:
WR - Fitzgerald vs SF
WR - Cooks vs Min
Leaning Bradshaw but Miller should get a lot of touches....
| SEC Rant|| Why Can't A&M's Defense Stop Rice? - AlexLSU on 9/14/14 at 10:33 am|
Outgained for two consecutive years, giving up a total of 990 yards. Pretty shameful IMO. ...

UF @ Bama 2:30p

| Tiger Rant|| LSU vs SEC Teams - All-Time Records - AlexLSU on 7/29/14 at 10:32 am|
Easy to find on the homepage, but here's all the records. Are any of these surprises? I didn't think that the USCe record would be that lopsided.
UF - 26-31-3
UGA - 16-13-1
Tenn - 9-20-3
UK - 39-16-1
USCe - 17-2-1
Vandy - 22-7-1
Mizzou - 0-1
AU - 27-20-1
Bama - 25-48...

| More Sports Board|| Isaiah Austin - Drafted by NBA - AlexLSU on 6/26/14 at 11:05 pm|
There was a thread earlier this week about this kid being diagnosed with Marfran syndrome which effectively ended his hopes of playing pro ball. Silver and the NBA with a very nice gesture giving him his moment tonight.
| Help Board|| Updating LSU Football History on Home Page - AlexLSU on 6/20/14 at 2:58 pm|
Overall records do not reflect 2013 season results, which I find to be unacceptable for a website with the resources and capabilities of Tigerdroppings Inc. Let's make it happen guys! ...
| More Sports Board|| 2014 Finals Much Like 2004 Finals - AlexLSU on 6/12/14 at 11:32 pm|
Home court was flipped obviously, but it took a big game from Kobe in game 2 of the 04 Finals to squeak out a win before ultimately losing in five, and this series is following the same narrative. One team has the best player and superior star power, while the opponent plays team basketball and can...

I noticed this myself when I picked up a rocketballz driver that was $200 off msrp. Dick's has a ridiculous amount of space dedicated to golf, and almost all of the me...

Kill me now. Train has gone forward and reversed two separate times and has stalled out for the past 20 minutes. Avoid Jefferson Hwy near Ochsner at all costs...
| SEC Rant|| SEC Titles in the Big 3 Sports (Reg Season) - AlexLSU on 3/12/14 at 2:55 pm|
Here's the rundown for LSU:
Football - 11 titles (4th Overall)
Basketball - 11 titles (2nd Overall)
Baseball - 15 titles (1st Overall)
I believe LSU is the only school with double digit titles in the big 3 sports.
Here's Arkansas for comparison's sake:
Football - 0 titles (tied for las...
| Music Board|| Third Eye Blind - NOLA HOB - December 1st - AlexLSU on 11/6/13 at 3:57 pm|
Anyone going to this, and if so, when did you get your tickets? Tickets appear to be sold out, so not sure if I'll make it. The band took a huge dip when Cadogan left, but they still put on a good show.
Self-titled and Blue :bow:...
| Tiger Rant|| Can the Players Control the Student Section Chants? - AlexLSU on 10/15/13 at 11:06 am|
Specifically with Neck and the infamous STTD,B chant.
There's obviously a disconnect between students and administration over certain songs, but the only reason we have a band, 92k seat stadium and Tigerdroppings is the football team. If they play a video before the game on the video screens w...

| O-T Lounge|| Uptown NOLA Road Closures? - AlexLSU on 10/12/13 at 10:34 am|
Anyone know what's going on? Sat in traffic around Magazine/State for a while, and it looked like traffic was backed up starting around Audubon. Tried to detour but couldn't get to St. Charles via State or Nashville due to police road closures. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Does Mett Break the Single-Season TD Mark? - AlexLSU on 10/1/13 at 9:44 am|
If so, what's his final total?
Mett currently sits with 13 TDs through five games. With at least eight games remaining, Mett has a great shot at breaking the single-season TD record of 28, held by Mauck and JR.
@ MSU (33rd in Pass D)
vs UF (6th in Pass D)
@ Ole Miss (45th in Pass D)
