| 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|| 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.
| LSU Ticket Exchange|| One Sam Houston Ticket for sale--Section 106 - timlan2057 on 8/25/14 at 12:40 pm|
Section 106, Row 34, Seat 1
I thought I was going alone, but my son decided to come down for the game, so I had to buy two together elsewhere.
I'll take face value: $60.
Please respond here or email me at email@example.com...

Does anybody know the answer before I spend time on hold with Cox?
Take the Sam Houston game. With stadium expansion, I could imagine the last thing LSU's athletic department and the SEC would want on Baton Rouge TV is a game with a lesser opponent where interest in being in the stands is not at ...

I've seen this both in Texas and Louisiana.
For example, the Tatum Eagles, a 2A perennial football powerhouse in northeast Texas, use this logo:
I mean, that's the exact logo of the Philadelphia Eagles. Aren't those NFL logos copy...

I posted this on January 10th but it quickly got buried amidst all the emotion. Maybe the point can be discussed rationally. This is not a "bash Les" post because I defend him and I hope we can rationally talk football here in the midst of the crazies.

Buddy Ryan's last game at Philadelphia before getting fired was a 1991 playoff loss to the Redskins where the Eagles' offense was horrible.
Buddy brought in Jim McMahon in the middle of the third quarter when Randall Cunningham was totally ineffective. Unfortunately for Buddy and the Eagles, Jimb...

I seriously doubt a college marching band can "prevent" an NFL team from warming up. :lol:

Is Matt Viator feeling any heat there in Lake Charles?
It seems like McNeese football has stagnated and been stuck on dead center the last few seasons, throughout the 90s and the first part of the aughts, it was almost a given that the Cowboys would go deep into the 1AA playoffs.
