| Tiger Rant|| LSU's football team w/ a chance for rare status - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 12/11/14 at 1:49 pm|
If LSU beats Notre Dame in the bowl, it would share a distinction w/ only 2 other NCAA programs (Michigan & Nebraska). LSU would be 1 of the 3 programs who have played ND 10+ times & have any winning record vs the Irish. BTW, UM is 19-15-1 vs ND. Nebraska is 8-7-1. ...
| Tiger Rant|| How do visitors to Auburn remove the stench of cow dung from themselves? - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 9/29/14 at 4:30 pm|
Any LSU fans headed to Allbarn for the 1st time will need some advice on how to remove the stench of bovine feces which permeates that village. I know the odor clings persistently b/c it's combined w/ a thick & sticky layer of envy toward their big brother on the western side of their state. Can any...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU ever had this lack of pitching depth? - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 6/2/14 at 9:43 pm|
When was the last season LSU has such a huge dropff in talent from its ace to the rest of the pitchers? Off the top of my head, I'm thinking '94 w/ Scott Schultz. ...
| Tiger Rant|| attendance question for those @ the Box - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 6/2/14 at 7:19 pm|
How many Houston fans were there last night & tonight? They sounded very loud on espn3.com. I was wondering if that's due to large numbers or just the placement of the field mics by their seats....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Looking @ next season's schedule - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 1/13/14 at 4:52 pm|
All teams being treated equally by the schedule-makers, the Saints have a 1/6 chance of playing @ Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. (The Cowboys have to host an NFC opponent then due to networks' rotation on that day.) The other possible opponents are the Giants, Redskins, Eagles, 49ers & Cards. My ...
| Tiger Rant|| ESPN Bowl Challenge Cup - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 1/4/14 at 12:53 am|
According to my review of bowl scores, the SEC only needs to win 1 of its 2 remaining bowls to win this trophy. Right now, the SEC has a 6-2 record. The PAC 12 is 6-3 & has no teams left to play. The AAC is 2-2 w/ 1 more game left. The Sun Belt can't win it despite possibility of finishing 2-0 since...

| More Sports Board|| "Tiebreaker" on Big 10 Network - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 11/17/13 at 10:33 pm|
Anyone watched this documentary? I understand that Michigan was angry about OH St. being voted to go the Rose Bowl. What I don't understand is why the Big 10 wouldn't let Michigan or anyone else go to another bowl. I don't see any downside to that, especially for a team that won a share of the confe...
| Tiger Rant|| Suggested songs for the band to play - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 10/23/13 at 3:53 pm|
Considering some songs have been removed from the playlist due to vulgar chants, does anyone want to suggest some alternatives? For my part, I'd like to recommend a selection in honor of Miles' post-game rant from a few weeks ago: "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel. ...
| SEC Rant|| Bo Pelini's comment on the SEC - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 8/27/13 at 5:14 pm|
I laughed tremendously @ this quote from Bo Pelini: “I guarantee there are a lot of teams in the SEC that aren’t Alabama that wish they were Nebraska, that wish they were Michigan, wish they were Ohio State,” Pelini said in July. “So don’t talk to me about the SEC. Let’s compare specific programs. T...
| Tiger Rant|| Odd # season means reason to expect more this season? - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 8/23/13 at 1:09 pm|
Here's a comparison of LSU's seasons, even vs odd numbered years since 2000.
Odd Numbered Seasons: SEC West tiles (5), SEC titles (4), BCS titles (2)
Even Numbered Seasons: no titles of any kind
Since the 1992 season, LSU has had to play @ Auburn, Florida & Arky in even # yrs. LSU has never...

To all the Cow Patties who are talking like their football program has been relevant nationally in the past 30 yrs, I dedicate this song in your honor.

[link=(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UC7oYrseI2U)]'96 Peach Bowl[/link]
I remembered feeling the game shouldn't have been that close, 10-7. After seeing this vid, I remember why. Richey missed 2 FGS. La Fleur dropped a pass that hit him in the hands while he was wide open in the endzone. Clemson...
| Tiger Rant|| another meaningless historical fact - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 11/2/12 at 11:39 pm|
Since the Gumps love to point to games from last century as though they have any relevance to the present, I looked up LSU's results vs. mUlligAn the yr after the Gumps won the AP's or coaches’ polls or some other mythical nat'l title.
1926: Bama won 24-0 @ Tuscaloosa
1927: 0-0 tie @ Birmingham...
| Tiger Rant|| state law for UL system establishment - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 9/1/12 at 1:35 pm|
Does anyone have the link to the LA law passed in '98 allowing universities to change their name to "Univ. of LA @____" but forbidding anyone from having exclusive right to the name "Univ. of LA". I need this link to settle a bet. I had it on my previous hard-drive but it crapped out last yr. I trie...
| Tiger Rant|| Alex Box vs. other regional venues - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 6/3/12 at 12:22 pm|
I went to 2 games this weekend @ Sunken Diamond. I've never attended NCAA regionals other than @ the Box before the past 2 days. I loved the huge trees ringing the stadium. I stood under that shade for a few innings when the temps rose for the afternoon games but still had a great view of the field....
| Tiger Rant|| My message to LSU's defense (It's long & don't give a $h!+ that it is) - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 1/11/12 at 2:32 am|
To LSU's defense, I applaud your persistence past the point to which most players would have continued to struggle, knowing their efforts were in vain. You held off mUlligAn & kept the game w/i a 2 possession deficit until less than 5 min. left in the game. You did everything that a person could rea...
| SEC Rant|| Big 10 vs. SEC - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 1/2/12 at 5:51 pm|
In 5 most recent seasons' bowls...
2011: 1-2, Big 10's sole win was in 3 OTs.
2010: 1-3, Big 10's sole win was later forfeited for using ineligible players.
2009: 1-1, SEC's win was in 1 OT
2007: 1-2, SEC champion beat Big 10 champ
That's 5-9 but officially 4-10 after the forfeited...
| Tiger Rant|| An idiotic response from Mountaineer - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 9/24/11 at 12:43 pm|
After reading multiple posts from WVU fans bragging about beating Chokelahoma & Georgia yrs ago, I posted this:
"Since you mentioned games from the past in expecting some nat'l respect for WVU, you overlooked some when WVU was in the nat'l spotlight. Remember your team going 11-0 in '93 & w...
