| Tiger Rant|| Jared Foster in the lineup? - sportsfan on 5/28/13 at 9:00 am|
Did Jared Foster do enough this weekend to make him an everyday starter in the post season? I know CPM values defense, but Foster had a great defensive showing at the tournament and his bat is hotter than his competition.
Also, any word on Laird's injury? ...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU vs Arkansas Predictions - sportsfan on 5/23/13 at 9:12 am|
I don't expect a high scoring affair with Nola and Stanek on the mound (I assume Stanek is going to pitch). Last time around Stanek really shut down LSU's offense. Hopefully LSU can scratch a few runs early and we can ride Nola to a close win.
Taking my P&G glasses off for a second, I can see the...

How long do you expect him to go? Has CPM made any comments regarding how he is going to handle him? What are the chances he sees action this weekend?...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU Weekend Rotation - sportsfan on 3/25/13 at 9:11 am|
Does anyone think we may see a switch between Eades and Nola in the weekend rotation? I know there is not much difference between the two, but Eades is really turning into the pitcher we hoped he would be and Nola (although pitching well) is not the dominant Friday night starter we are accustom to s...
| Tiger Rant|| Jared Foster Playing Time - sportsfan on 3/18/13 at 1:33 pm|
I definitely don't think one homerun makes the kid an All-American, but the kid has performed well in limited action. 5 hits in 9 at bats, he played a lot last year, so it's not like he's a rookie. Could we possibly see him more at the DH spot in SEC play? Has CPM made any comments regarding Foster?...
| Tiger Rant|| Mark Laird - Stolen Bases - sportsfan on 3/14/13 at 9:07 am|
Granted I haven't been able to watch every game this season, but one stat that I'm curious about is that Mark Laird only has 1 stolen base on 3 attempts.
He has 23 singles and has walked 8 times...but has only attempted 3 steals on the season. Sure, I know sometimes there are runners in front of ...

I know Travin Dural and Kavahra Holmes will be each competing in 4 events tomorrow at the state track meet at LSU. And I'm sure Jeryl Brazil will be running in several.
What other future Tigers will be out there?...

I'm not asking for who you think were the best, but instead, who are the guys you miss the most. The guys who were just fun to watch, regardless of stats or post season recognition.
1. Eddy Furniss - the fact that he stayed 4 years at LSU and had one of the sweetest swings I've ever seen from the...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Dural and Thomas on campus this weekend... - sportsfan on 5/2/11 at 9:40 am|
at the 4A state track meet. Travin Dural qualified for the high jump, long jump, 200, and 4x200 relay. LSU fans will get a good taste of just how athletic this kid really is. He earned outstanding performer at the regional qualifier last week at ULL.
LSU signee Quentin Thomas will also be competi...
| Tiger Rant|| What will be the key lineup change this season? - sportsfan on 4/18/11 at 12:14 pm|
A couple of years ago, Helenihi gets inserted late in the year and that sparked LSU in the post season.
Then it was Nola being inserted at SS.
Last year, it was Katz in LF.
Who will it be this year? Clearly it won't be Dozar, Cunningham, or Ware. Who's left?...
| Tiger Rant|| Spring Game Kick Returns - sportsfan on 4/11/11 at 12:19 pm|
Ron Brooks showed great vision on all 3 of his returns during the spring game. He seemed to find the seem every time and made our coverage look very suspect.
I understand there was a light contact rule on kickoffs...do you think that made Brooks look better than he was? Regardless of the rule, th...
| Tiger Rant|| Hanover may be the catalyst - sportsfan on 4/4/11 at 1:02 pm|
I noticed after watching most of LSU's games this season that it always seemed like when Hanover had a bad game, LSU struggled as a whole offensively. You could probably say this about several starters, but I decided to check my theory with the stats.
In LSU's wins this year, Hanover has hit .353...
| Tiger Rant|| Kicker / Punter - sportsfan on 3/29/11 at 11:07 am|
Any word from spring practice on who is emerging as the starting kicker and punter for next season? How are they looking in practice? Special teams has been the least of our worries over the last few seasons with Jasper. Hope we can say the same for his replacement (and hope his replacement can tote...

I have been reading the rant for quite some time now and have really enjoyed the banter. I have wanted to chime in on a lot of topics but didn't want to get bashed by the always comical "it's your first post so your opinion doesn't matter" response.
So I figured I would use my first post to say h...
