| 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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

After reading multiple posts from WVU fans bragging about beating Chokelahoma & Georgia yrs ago, I posted this:

| Tiger Rant|| SEC Championship venue - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 7/5/10 at 9:31 am|
Will the SEC title game ever be played again somewhere other than in the GA Dome? I was wondering since I was listening to an ESPN podcast speculating about where the PAC-10 & Big 10 will schedule their games.
When the ADs voted in the past, the SEC East voted as a bloc, w/ maybe 1 defection...
| Tiger Rant|| weekend tournament - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 3/5/10 at 1:40 pm|
I like this arrangement that LSU has set this weekend by playing vs. 2 different teams. I remember they did something similar in '05.
I would like to see a 4 team tourney set up if some corporate sponsors would kick in some funds. It could something like the tourney that used to take place in t...
| SEC Rant|| Indy Bowl dropped SEC & Big 12?! - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 12/28/09 at 7:57 pm|
I just heard on the Indy Bowl broadcast that the ACC & MWC will send members to the game next season. If the bowl reps chose to drop the SEC & Big 12 in favor of those 2 conferences, then that crappy bowl will finally croak. At least, the SEC-Big 12 tie-ins gave them teams whose fans could easily dr...

Anyone know if Penn St. has an SEC team on a future schedule?

How many Saints fans appear among the crowd? It sounded like a lot of cheering after Meachem's TD. I'm listening to the game over NFL.com so I can't see the game.

Assuming LSU wins the next 2, what the chances LSU plays in the bowl formerly known as Hall of Fame? Assuming that UGA wins out, the bowl formerly known as Citrus is very likely to choose the Dogs. They have not played there in 4+ yrs. Would the former HOF Bowl take LSU over SC? The Cocks played the...
| Tiger Rant|| bowl preferences? - Bayou_Bengal@Irving on 10/29/08 at 12:37 pm|
I hope LSU plays in the bowl formerly known as Citrus or the former Hall of Fame Bowl. I like their chances much more vs. an opponent from the Slow 10. An invitation to the Cotton Bowl would most likely mean playing someone from the Diminutive Dozen Southern Div. Those teams throw the ball constantl...
