| More Sports Board|| Have the "Harden will be a bust as a starter" people come back to eat crow? - timlan2057 on 2/23/15 at 11:58 pm|
This board was filled with Rockets haters and Harden haters the last couple years--experts who declared James Harden would be a bust when thrust into the role as "the man" on the Rockets.
Have they been back to apologize and eat crow yet?...
| Tiger Rant|| Josh Gray Tries to do Way too Much - timlan2057 on 1/17/15 at 1:22 pm|
After playing somewhat within himself against Ole Miss, he was back to his old and bad habits today.
Driving into heavy traffic when no outlet is available, jacking up shots mere seconds into the shot clock in crunch time ...
He apparently thinks he is still playing juco ball where he can driv...
| Tiger Rant|| Jarrell Martin's Height - timlan2057 on 1/17/15 at 10:32 am|
Some "experts" here lately have been claiming he is not near his listed height of 6-10. A couple here posted that he was not more than 6-7.
If JM is not every bit of 6-10, I am an astronaut.
During warmups, he was talking to ER III, while standing next to him. They were exactly eye-level, with...
| Help Board|| Why was my Steele-Recruiting Question Thread Anchored? - timlan2057 on 1/14/15 at 11:48 am|
Okay Chicken, now I can understand you guys anchoring threads with irrational hate and no substance. You should.
But my thread had substance and was thought out, like all my thread star...
| Tiger Rant|| Steele as a Recruiter in 2014, not 2005 - timlan2057 on 1/14/15 at 11:16 am|
We know this guy's record as an x's and o's coordinator and as a hands-on coach is a dumpster fire. I'm quite concerned with his psychological problems such as fainting on game days and crying in the arms of another coach. And hey, you can be a loser as a head coach and it not necessarily be a bad s...
| Tiger Rant|| Instead of Third and Chavis ... - timlan2057 on 1/13/15 at 6:20 pm|
It will now be ...
First and Steele ...
Second and Steele ...
Third and Steele ...
and even Fourth and Steele....
| Tiger Rant|| I Am Officially Off the Les Miles Bandwagon - timlan2057 on 1/13/15 at 6:10 pm|
I've defended him on here for ten years.
Now, he can't be fired soon enough for me....
| Tiger Rant|| Ideally, Our Offense Should Be the Dallas Cowboys' - timlan2057 on 1/11/15 at 2:22 pm|
It's primarily a conservative offense with a power running game with a feature back, and a dependable tight end.
You have one featured receiver, but plenty others who can make big plays with a gritty, competitive quarterback who may not be the best pure passer, but who has pocket awareness and c...
| Tiger Rant|| If Defensive Coaches Signed Extensions Without Chavis ... - timlan2057 on 1/8/15 at 12:19 pm|
Then we can bitch and moan all we want about how Chavis fricked us over, but this is ultimately on Alleva.
If he is not enough of an executive to have the foresight to know something fishy was up when Chavis wouldn't sign, then he doesn't deserve to be the Athletic Director at LSU.
Either they ...
| More Sports Board|| Ara Parseghian: Did any other "great" coach walk away so young? - timlan2057 on 1/3/15 at 7:55 am|
Ara Parseghian is now 91 years old and no doubt has lived a long and fulfilled life.
My question: has any other coach considered among the all-time greats just completely walked away from the game at the relatively young age of 51 and never returned?
It's unreal that he was never lured into co...
| Tiger Rant|| Orgeron's First Team Meeting With Ole Miss - timlan2057 on 1/2/15 at 11:05 am|
Yeah, this is germans for some.
It's from Bruce Feldman's book Meat Market.
When I first read it years ago, I thought the guy was bat shite crazy.
But hey, I'm a positiger who admits that we need more intensity.
I guess I'm ready to sell my soul. As someone said on another thread: "He may ...
| Tiger Rant|| Ed Orgeron--He Has Overcome (Book Excerpts) - timlan2057 on 1/2/15 at 8:12 am|
[b]Yes, I am bumping my own thread.
He comes off as a buffoon, and for a long time that's how I thought of him.
But there is a lot about Ed Orgeron to admire.
The way he overcame terrible personal problems means that the Ed Orgeron story is ultimately a story of triumph.
| Coaching Changes|| Is Matt Viator at McNeese Feeling any Heat at All? - timlan2057 on 12/7/14 at 6:43 am|
A local said that he has a cozy relationship with the boosters and donors, but c'mon.
After starting the year looking great against Nebraska, the Cowboys looked like they might return to their 90's-early 2000's form when they regularly went deep in the 1AA playoffs.
But then they go into the ...
| Tiger Rant|| Les Chewing Out Mett in Practice - timlan2057 on 12/6/14 at 12:43 pm|
This vid may be old news, but I just saw it for the first time.
Les chews out Mett as well as Saban could have.
I'm glad Les doesn't go crazy on the game sidelines like Saban or Saban's mini me Muschamp, but this vid refutes those who think he carries that zany, head-in-the-clouds persona into...
| Help Board|| Why Was My "Manny Factor" thread deleted from Coaching Changes? - timlan2057 on 12/4/14 at 8:05 am|
No, there is no canned answer in FAQs.
Why the hell was that thread deleted?
It was pertinent to the issue of a possible Miles to Michigan, and I see no possible reason why some jackleg should RA that thread and get it deleted.
What's going on, Admins?...
| Tiger Rant|| Mark Hudspeth? - timlan2057 on 11/16/14 at 12:08 pm|
Hey, I figure I have just as much a right as anybody to start an idiotic "let's fire Miles--this guy is the answer" thread....
| Tiger Rant|| What REALLY happened on our final kickoff after the FG? - timlan2057 on 11/11/14 at 7:32 am|
It's an honest question, I haven't heard it analyzed deeply.
I know Les said that he told Domingue/BDP to "kick it out of the back of the endzone."
So did Domingue muff a standard kickoff THAT badly?
Was there miscommunication somewhere between Miles and Peveto, the squib was on despite Mil...
| Tiger Rant|| Hats off to Alleva and visitors' seating - timlan2057 on 10/25/14 at 10:35 pm|
Ole Miss brought a lot of fans tonight.
There was the limit of about 1500-2000 in the SEZ lower, but the sea of red was at the very top of the east upper ... they had a better view of New Orleans than they did the field.
Their crowd was absolutely not a factor.
Good job Joe, of putting mos...
| Tiger Rant|| LF--Will his 4.3 speed translate into a "first burst"? - timlan2057 on 10/14/14 at 7:20 am|
To me, it wasn't so much his vision improving that led to LF's "coming out" against Florida. He ran with violence and anger, trucked people, and was a mean SOB.
His cuts while maintaining the same speed are amazing. But what I haven't seen, is a "first burst" of speed where he simply hits the cor...
| Tiger Rant|| "Taking the Crowd Out of the Game" - timlan2057 on 9/21/14 at 10:40 am|
I have to hand it to Mississippi State.
While I have my gripes about modern-era Tiger Stadium fan support, after the strip and TD to make it 17-10, on MSU's next possession, Tiger Stadium was as loud as I've heard it in over forty years of going to games. It was like sitting inside a jet engine.
