While our defense has been in overdrive, our offense has been in neutral or reverse during his tenure.

Full disclosure: I will vote for Romney and believe he made a great choice in Ryan. With that said, I was watching Fox News and they had Karl Rove's map of the electoral college which showed how close Obama was to wrapping up enough electoral votes for the presidency.

| Tiger Rant|| Why did LSU retain Alleva - Soft_Parade on 4/13/12 at 3:22 am|

| Tiger Rant|| New Athletic Director - Soft_Parade on 2/5/12 at 8:00 am|
If LSU is fortunate enough to have another school (Tennessee was the first) dumb enough to offer Alleva the job and free the BOS from his new contract, the Baylor AD would not be a bad place to start. Their athletic programs seem to be doing well in Waco, repeat Waco, TX.
