Heard that Cleveland Brown fans were thinking of some new names for their 1st round QB draft pick - 2nd place was Johnny Backup, but the top new name was Johnny Bench. :cheers:...
| Tiger Rant|| Congrats to K-Rob for Cape Cod All-Star selection and Chinea keeps hot bat - WacoTiger on 7/22/14 at 6:24 pm|
Kramer Robertson was selected to the All-Star team in the Cape Cod league.
Last night, he and Chinea had a great night. K-Rob in the field and Chinea with his walk-off single off of Vandy Pitcher, Hayden Stone.
[quote] [Liam O'Sullivan (the Gatemen pitcher)]also credited his longevity on the ...
| Tiger Rant|| K-Rob hitting well in Cape Cod - WacoTiger on 7/8/14 at 9:17 am|
Kramer Robertson continues to hit well in the Cape Cod League this summer. He is 2nd on the team in batting, averaging .372, with 3 multi-hit games in his last 4 games. I knew he could hit, as he was second in batting on the LSU team in Fall scrimmages last year. I think he will have a great sopho...

Mahtook continues to hit lights out for Tampa Bay's Triple A Club - the Durham Bulls. Hitting .462 in his last 10 games and .335 for the season. He has hit 8 doubles in his last 10 games and 18 doubles for the 46 game season so far. If he keeps this up, he might get the call up for the 40 man rost...

| Tiger Rant|| Baseball line-up Changes this Weekend - WacoTiger on 4/2/14 at 6:30 am|
One thing I really like about Coach Mainieri is he is not afraid to shake things up when the team is not performing up to his expectations. Expect several line-up changes (speaking about the players in the field) this weekend. I expect several of those changes may even take place tonight, but not s...
| Tiger Rant|| Les Miles against Proposed Hurry Up Rule - or is he? You decide - WacoTiger on 3/10/14 at 1:15 pm|
Hopefully not Germans, but, when asked about the proposed NCAA rule change on stopping hurry up offenses, Les Miles came out against the proposed rule (I think) and had the following response:
[quote]Miles agreed, although as often is the case, his explanation was complicated.
"There's little ...

[quote]Kevin (Lafayette, La): Aaron, so glad to see the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns getting some respect… UL has a very solid team and very deep this year. What do you think our ceiling is, now that we've added some major depth to our pitching staff from last year? Also, we hope that you will start ...
| SEC Rant|| How many coaching mistakes did Saban make yesterday? - WacoTiger on 12/1/13 at 10:16 am|
I haven't seen the game on TV yet, but I did listen to the Auburn and Bama radio broadcasts yesterday. Saban appeared to make several critical coaching mistakes. Let's try to list some (you can add those that I missed):
1. Not kicking a field goal to go up 2 scores and going for it on 4th down in...
| Tiger Rant|| Bat Guano Problem at A&M - WacoTiger on 11/14/13 at 9:00 am|
If any Aggie mentions "corndogs" to you this week, you might remain them of the horrible stench in their stadium when we went last year. To put it nicely, I refer to it as Bat Guano. Legend has it that the bats actually migrate from Town Lake in Austin each evening, fly to Kyle Field, dump a loa...
| Tiger Rant|| Correction - Season Tickets Received today - WacoTiger on 8/23/13 at 10:26 am|
Just got the email that my season tickets are in route via FedEx. Then, got email for tracking and found out they were actually delivered today. Football fever is in the air.
| Tiger Rant|| Congrats to Raph Rhymes on his great summer in the minors - WacoTiger on 8/12/13 at 3:09 pm|
Rhymes was 2-for-4 in the ballgame last night and has hit safely in all 11 of his games since joining the Whitecaps on July 30. Since joining the West Michigan Whitecaps in Class A Midwest League, Raph is hitting .419. He was promoted from the Short A season team. Five of his eleven games have be...
| Tiger Rant|| UCLA's bunting - WacoTiger on 6/25/13 at 10:07 am|
Searched, but didn't find this discussed. When the UCLA batters bunt and run to first, they always run on the infield grass (not inside the marked 1st base running lane). This causes the fielder and/or 1st baseman to miss several balls and/or alters throws from the catcher. It certainly happened ...
| LSU Ticket Exchange|| Don't sell LSU tickets to Aggie Fans - WacoTiger on 6/24/13 at 4:49 pm|
FYI - most Aggie fans are just now finding out they didn't get LSU away game tickets in Baton Rouge this year from their Mother Ship. I think they are in shock. In any event, there will be several trolls on this board trying to buy LSU tickets from LSU fans. Our Motto - Real Tiger Fans don't sell...
| Tiger Rant|| My weekend so far - WacoTiger on 5/11/13 at 8:23 am|
Ok, so I've driven back and forth to College Station twice (95 miles each way, 190 R/T) and seen only 12 innings of baseball (had to leave at 11 on Thursday night after the 4th rain delay). Can't make the early game this morning, but I will be there for the noon game. Can't believe all the rain an...

Weather not looking too good for the LSU v. A&M baseball game tonight and tomorrow. We haven't had much rain in Central Texas and the forecasts are normally wrong, but 60% change of showers at game time tonight and 40-50% chance tomorrow night. Right now, in Waco, it is very dark and humid. Not a...

When we went to Kyle Field for the LSU vs A&M football game last fall, the north endzone smelled horrible. Apparently, the Aggie's stadium has been infested with bats and there was a horrible bat feces ($hit) smell. If any Aggie baseball fans ask why people in the SEC call us corndogs (they seem t...

Great Weekend for LSU - #1 ranked Men's baseball takes 2 out of 3 from Arkansas on the road, Women's softball takes 2 out of 3 from A&M on the road, including an 8 run rule today (10-2) - gotta love the old Southwest Conference teams now in the SEC. Next, LSU alumni David Toms shoots the low final ...
