| Tiger Rant|| Ah, we are on the eve of one of those magical days that don't come around often - Methuselah on 10/24/14 at 6:57 pm|
A home game against a highly ranked SEC opponent.
Tiger stadium should be rocking. Campus will be electric. And the football will be two strong teams going head to head.
Thank you football gods for tomorrow. :lol:

| Tiger Rant|| How will OM at LSU 2014 compare to USCe at LSU 2012? - Methuselah on 10/23/14 at 11:54 am|
The opponents seem similar. I think the Gamecocks came in #3 and I think they were undefeated. They had the Jadaveon Clowney on their D-line. In both case the opponent was/is a team without a strong recent history of being near the top the the standings. But in both case they were/are team havi...
| Tiger Rant|| Miles seems to be in a great mood this week. - Methuselah on 10/22/14 at 9:28 pm|
I caught part of the Wednesday night "radio show" on t.v. as well as the replay of Monday's press conference and the clip with him after practice getting a dig in at Herbie.
The dude seems to be enjoying the heck out of this week.
Now, I don't know if that is a good or bad thing necessarily. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Orgeron on starting the younger player to prepare for the future - Methuselah on 10/21/14 at 12:28 pm|
Was listening to 104.5 this morning and they had their weekly segment with him.
He always has some good recruiting talk and stories. But this morning he was asked about whether he used to start a younger player that had the potential to come on strong over an older player who was playing a bit b...
| SEC Rant|| Actually watched a few minutes of Finebaum for the first time. - Methuselah on 10/20/14 at 8:04 pm|
At least the part I saw didn't seem as bad as I've always heard it was.
Sure, it was a little public access-y but Finebaum didn't seem to be going out of his way to bash other teams.
He did make a hell of a lot of weird faces though. Like he was trying to establish that he was above callers l...
| Tiger Rant|| Matt Flynn calling Jennings with support and advice. - Methuselah on 10/20/14 at 7:04 am|
Gotta love it when the past players take time out to pass on a little support and wisdom to the current players. Dude has class:
[quote]The ex-LSU quarterback called Jennings to offer advice and...
| Music Board|| Anyone else ever do a YouTube surf of songs? - Methuselah on 10/17/14 at 8:08 pm|
Every once in a while I'll find myself pull up a song on Youtube and then just go from song to song picking each new one from the bar on the right side of the screen that gives suggestions.
I've gone through a wide variety of artists and even genres from the song I start with by the time I finish...
| Tiger Rant|| Les MIles' Show in game thread - Methuselah on 10/15/14 at 8:14 pm|
Show is on CST.
So far: Miles praises the DB's hustling to keep Fla. out of the end zone on that long pass play (where they stopped him at the 2). And praises the D for forcing the field goal. 4 points would have made a big difference.
Says Fla. was "fortunate" not to get a 5 yard delay of ...
| Tiger Rant|| What stud receivers do we face the remainder of this season? - Methuselah on 10/14/14 at 8:49 pm|
(Other than Amari Cooper who seems to be a given here).
- It seems like our DBs are pretty good at actually staying with receivers most of the time. But there have been a couple of instances where either the receiver just won the battle for the ball (or they drew an interference call).
| Tiger Rant|| I humbly take credit for this win - Methuselah on 10/12/14 at 10:24 am|
I just know that it was my great pre-gamem NSFW babe rally thread that did it. Even though it was posted 24 hours before the game and was short lived before getting the whack, it was the thread I tell ya.
OK, maybe BUGA and Rickey Jefferson and Colby Delahoussaye had something to do with it as w...
| Tiger Rant|| So, does the "no events on Saturdays in the fall" lose some steam in down years? - Methuselah on 10/10/14 at 4:33 pm|
Mail comes and we get an invitation for the wedding of the son of one my wife's co-workers (and pretty close friend of ours). It is at 5:00 on the day of the LSU/Alabama game.
My wife is all "I don't know why they put it on that day. You don't have to come to it". (this principle has been lon...
| Tiger Rant|| Anybody else up early watching the 1988 LSU/Auburn game - Methuselah on 10/10/14 at 6:49 am|
Dang. Talk about offensive struggles. Throw and catch at the end made it all worthwhile though....
| Food and Drink Board|| What are some good moderately priced Italian restaurants in B.R.? - Methuselah on 10/9/14 at 7:53 pm|
I figure this must have been discussed on here at some point in time but did not see anything with a search.
So, what ya' got?...
| Tiger Rant|| Think I'll just put this here - taking the field against Oregon in 2011 - Methuselah on 10/8/14 at 9:18 pm|
With all the wailing and gnashing of teeth going on lately, I thought a little scene of some of the memories made by the Tigers in recent years might be appropriate:

| Tiger Rant|| Why did the first down runs work so well? - Methuselah on 10/8/14 at 12:07 pm|
We seemed to run the ball very well on first down. I was kind of surprised because I would have thought Auburn would have been looking for that and stuffed it. I always figured passing early would soften up the front of the defense.
I've seen different opinions on what formations we ran on 1st ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Wait, that awful KISS football show is on AMC? - Methuselah on 10/7/14 at 9:37 pm|
Dang, I didn't realize that.
WTF AMC, WTF?...
| Tiger Rant|| Hypothetical - if the BCS had matched LSU up against Okie State in 2011 ... - Methuselah on 10/7/14 at 6:47 am|
And LSU had won the national championship, would your opinion of him be different?...
| Help Board|| Is there any way we can get a bigger font for the SEC Rant? - Methuselah on 10/6/14 at 7:57 pm|
That tiny type is really hell on us old blind guys....
| Tiger Rant|| Which of the following programs' last 10 years would you trade LSU's for? - Methuselah on 10/6/14 at 6:40 pm|
- Georgia under Richt
- Florida under Myer & Muschamp
- Auburn under Chickz & Gus (and whoever else coached them during that time).
- Ole Miss under whatever succession of coaches they have had
- State under the coaches they've had
- TAMU same
- south Carolina under Spurrier
- oklahoma under ...
| Tiger Rant|| Lunch with Les in game thread - Methuselah on 10/6/14 at 12:48 pm|
Likes his team. Going to develop.
"Don't read the papers. Don't listen to the Radio. On purpose".
When he pulled up at facility, there was a guy in a black SUV with a guy that yelled "keep fighting coach".
Great group of kids....
