Does it not make you worried that we are going into the 2014 season with only two quarterbacks, one a sophomore who has played on game and one drive and true freshman who has not played a down of college football?
What happens if Jennings goes down, all we have is a true freshman with zero colleg...
| Tiger Rant|| Stop beating up on Coach Paul Mainieri - mike4lsu on 6/9/14 at 12:11 pm|
There is way too much parity in college baseball today. I mean there are 296 division one college baseball teams and anyone can beat anyone. If Kennesaw State ( apologies for the wrong spelling ) can advance to a super regional and Stony Brooks to the College World Series, there is a lot of parity b...

-- Not much difference there
Alabama 1 SEC Championship (2012)

-- No difference there
Alabama 2 Nat-Champs
LSU 0 Nat-Champs
-- Winning conferences is about playing good football, winning Nat-champs is about luck. LSU was lucky to get i...
| Coaching Changes|| Should the NCAA cap coaches salaries? - mike4lsu on 12/15/13 at 11:41 am|
I mean this bidding war for Nick Saban has gone out of hand. Every year at this time Jimmy Sexton becomes the king of college football.
I mean a college kid has to go to school, maintain a reasonable GPA and also have to play like a pro athelete and then get ripped to shreads by the media, fan b...
| Tiger Rant|| Question with regards to Mett's draft stock? - mike4lsu on 12/4/13 at 5:36 am|
Will Mett be able to attend the NFL combine now that his acl is torn. What happens to his draft stock if he cannot attend the combine.
This story on Mett makes me sad. Mett has more talent than Matt Flynn and Matt Mauck and had a better work ethic than Jamarcus Russell. He had all it takes to suc...
| Tiger Rant|| Who picks first Cotton or Outback? - mike4lsu on 12/2/13 at 8:35 am|
If Cotton picks first do they not take a 2 loss South Carolina over a 3 loss LSU? Especially since we began the season in Jerry world.
Honestly am not that excited about playing Baylor. They will be sky high and our guys will play soft, looking forward to the NFL combine. Baylor and Briles will h...
| Tiger Rant|| The difference between Miles and DiNardo,... - mike4lsu on 11/13/13 at 11:43 am|
Dinardo followed Curley Hallman. Miles followed Nick Saban.
After three winning seasons, Dinardo felt, considering that expectations were low, he could hang it up and open a restaurant.
Miles knows, so long as Saban is in the league and winning national championship after national championship...
| Tiger Rant|| Is Jennings that good or Rivers that bad? - mike4lsu on 11/13/13 at 11:28 am|
Next year we will have a virtual redshirt freshman starting at quarterback. Last time we did that was with Jarrett Lee in 08 and what a disaster that was.
That year was because, the projected starter Ryan Periloux was kicked off the team. But this year is different, we have Rivers on the sidelin...

Auburn has 1 major game left in their schedule. They will finish with 2 losses, the other one being to Alabama. I think they will beat Georgia. They will be 2.
Texas A&M wins out behind Manziel. They will have 3 losses.
Ole Miss, I think wins out from here on. They have no big games left. They...

That is the problem. We have won way too many since 2000. 4 SEC championships, 2 national championships. Back to back 10/11 win seasons, etc.
Our fans leave at the middle of the game to party.
Our players are just not up and ready for anyone other than a big opponent.

Just thought I will remind folks here. 6000 brave Americans died defending freedom and opposing tyranny.
Most them were in their teens and early 20s and had never married and had no children. No one would remember them, personally after they were gone.
But their sacrifice should not be forgot...

| Tiger Rant|| Between 2009 - 2012, Saban has been beaten only by a mobile QB. - mike4lsu on 1/16/13 at 11:26 am|
In 2008 - Tim Tebow.
In 2009 - Undefeated
In 2010 - JJ/LSU, Cam Newton/Auburn, USC QB (Spurrier coached)
In 2011 - JJ/LSU
In 2012 - Johnny Manziel.
I think the key is in evading the bliz
What bothers me is we do not have a mobile/dual threat QB on our roster. I do not think we beat Alabama u...

you know what, I think we should consider quitting the SEC and moving to ACC. It would unbalance the league and they would lose one of their top sporting institutions, if not academic. Then they can take in TCU/Texas/Texas Tech or whoever.
We have to play Florida year in year out where Alabama h...

Miles runs this offensive play calling. No other OC will be effective. We have seen that with Jimbo, Crowton and Studrawa. There is no need of a new OC.
Besides you would have to fire Steve Kragthorpe. That would be bad karma, considering his conditions.
