| More Sports Board|| What if Manti Teo is Gay? - Dignan on 1/17/13 at 7:03 pm|
That would certainly make things interesting. I can't recall an openly gay man being drafted in the NFL.
I feel sorry for the kid, regardless of what happens for here, but think about if this was the way that he was outed. ...

| SEC Rant|| Sympathy for the Arkansas Fanbase... - Dignan on 10/2/12 at 12:57 pm|
First and foremost, consider that I'm a die hard LSU fan. Arkansas always plays LSU tough and for some strange reason, most of the LSU fanbase does not take Arkansas as seriously as they should.
From one college football fan to another, I can't imagine losing 4 games in September after starting t...

| Tiger Rant|| Common Opponent of LSU/Oregon... - Dignan on 9/24/12 at 8:02 pm|
In two weeks, Oregon will play Washington. Based on the results of that game, and how LSU fares against Florida earlier in the day, should give the Tigers the opportunity to jump the Ducks in the polls.
Just curious as to what the Rant thinks the Oregon/Washington score will be. I say 49-10 Duck...
| Tiger Rant|| What Are You Hoping to See At the Game This Weekend? - Dignan on 9/12/12 at 1:52 pm|
First and foremost, injury free football, obviously. Beyond that, I'd like to see:
1. Mettenberger play as little as possible after the game is out of reach. Ideally, that would be one quarter. Let's see Rivers play 2 quarters and either Randall or Bolden play the 4th.
2. Get some of the guys...
| SEC Rant|| Did Tyler Wilson Actually Help His Heisman Campaign Last Night? - Dignan on 9/9/12 at 4:57 pm|
If Heisman voters select the most valuable player for their team, Wilson may have just shown how irreplaceable he is.
If somehow, he's able to pull off a miracle against Bama, I'd say he's right back in the Heisman race....

Why didn't we challenge the incompletion thrown to Shepard in the endzone with 5 minutes left in the 2nd qtr? We were only up 17-3 at that point and had all 3 timeouts remaining. I'm not say...

I'm drowning in a slow work day and was looking on youtube for some highlights of the game, but can't find any full game highlights. I find a fan clips from crappy seats, but nothing from the original broadcast.
Granted, it's Troy, and perhaps I'm the only football junkie that wants to see the co...

Edited 10 minutes after posting. For some reason the body was left out of my original post- stupid smart phone.
Anyways, my point was that Miles tells everyone how "vanilla" the game is going to be. The fan base and players have never experienced a more devastating loss and this would be a terr...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Why Does Everyone Buy Kiel's Excuse? - Dignan on 1/22/12 at 10:09 pm|
I don't know that Kiel will come straight out and say the real reason he decommitted, but I think distance and Mom card are too easily accepted. He already knew how far it was from home and it wasn't as if this suddenly became an issue overnight. He very well could be a Mama's boy, but I would think...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| What's the Rush in Signing a QB This Year? - Dignan on 1/17/12 at 10:35 am|
Don't get me wrong, if there are still some elite prospects available and we're able to snag one, great! If not, I don't see the need to take a lower tier QB for depth purposes. If Randall and Rivers don't pan out as backups, we can always go the JUCO route like we did with Mettenberger.
I don't ...

It's been a tough year for him, but I'm sure he's enjoying this moment.
Hooray for a true Alabama fan and great representative of the Crimson Tide fanbase!...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| No One Will Agree With Me on This, but.... - Dignan on 1/5/12 at 10:20 pm|
the lack of support by LC's family made me feel badly for him. I've been a die hard LSU fan all my life, but if my son or daughter chose a rival school over my alma mater, I'd support them all the way.
That was LC's big moment on national TV and his family couldn't be more supportive? That was k...
| SEC Rant|| Has a School Ever Had At Least 1 FB Championship Each 4 Years Over a 12yr Span? - Dignan on 12/19/11 at 2:45 pm|
Since 2000, each football player enrolled at LSU on scholarship that stayed all 4 years, has played in at least one BCS title game. Has any other school ever pulled off this feat (let alone win at least 1 title)
Think about that for a minute. From 2000 on, each player that stayed 4 years, could h...

Since 47 of the 50 states think Oklahoma State deserves to be in the title game over Bama, I'm guessing the backlash against the Tide will be huge.
It's kind of nice to know the hatred for Alabama football will be felt outide of the Gulf Coast. :cheers:...

I remember how painful the loss was, but necessary, if we were to get rid of the two headed defensive coordinator situation. I'm thankful now for Casey Dick's TD pass that seemed to be the final straw in putting that awful experiment to an end.
Timing is everything and I'm so thankful we ended up...
| SEC Rant|| Thank You Alabama.... - Dignan on 11/26/11 at 10:32 pm|
...for giving us at least one challenging opponent this year. As fun as it's been to watch LSU kick ass, it's also been somewhat of a bore with the lack of drama we're used to.
Bama is clearly one of the top 2 teams and I look forward to another epic battle. It's not that I'm overconfident to p...

Ok, Bama fans. Most of us Tiger fans have had our fun rubbing your noses in the defeat. Both of our fan bases can be out of line at times, but we all know how much losses like this hurt.
Props to both teams for giving us two weeks of excitement, building up to this game. It was the absolute battl...

Last week, I listened to Greg McElroy being interviewed by Paul Finebaum. GMac mentioned that LSU had the best defense he had ever gone up against. When asked how he thought McCarron would perform, he said (paraphrasing) "it would be a tall task and that after LSU keeps hitting you all game, it gets...

Most of us have had strong opinons regarding what is best for the football team- whether it's who should have started prior to the barfight, what JJ's role should be when he comes back, so on and so forth.
I have NEVER seen a TEAM block out distractions and opinions the way this team has and I've...

Just remember, it takes a big man to admit he made a mistake and an even bigger man to laugh at him....
