| LSU Recruiting Board|| The whole "star" thing - Football_Freak on 12/17/13 at 6:14 pm|
In following rivals and other recruiting services over a 15+ year timeframe, I think it is safe to say that the star rankings DO matter.
Sure, there are always going to be notable and visible exceptions to point to, but if you took the overall stars and how many first string SEC snaps they got, t...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Over/Under on Actual LSU 5-star recruits - Football_Freak on 12/17/13 at 5:25 pm|
I think the number is 5.5 (edited from 4.5 since most think that is way too low)
| LSU Recruiting Board|| LSU return to having a dominant big-time Safety - Football_Freak on 12/14/13 at 9:01 pm|
Loston was ok, but no where near the days of Chad Jones and other great Safety's, which have been key.
Who is the most likely to emerge as a dominant safety ?
Who will be the hard hitting athletic Safety's for the LSU transition year in 2014, and in place for the National...
| Coaching Changes|| This Tiger fan wants Saban at Bama - Football_Freak on 12/13/13 at 10:21 pm|
Looking forward to the visit next November.
LSU will be ready. :geauxtigers:
I love corndogs too, and I bet most Auburn and Bama fans do also.
Bring it, Saban...bring it!...
| Tiger Rant|| Miles' dream running offense - Football_Freak on 12/7/13 at 6:56 pm|
Only he would try to do it with the option (like with JJ) and running up the middle off tackle every first down... :lol:
But seriously, Miles must be watching this game and anchoring himself to his running-the-ball heritage more than ever.
| Tiger Rant|| AJ10's release - Football_Freak on 12/7/13 at 3:37 pm|
I am stoked about AJ based on many things. I liked how he seems to have a good touch in his passes in the Arky game. The contrast to the darts on-a-line and quick release of Mett was striking.
What is the impression of his throwing mechanics?
Sure, it is a small sample size, and the results we...
| Tiger Rant|| Relationship Les - Football_Freak on 11/26/13 at 8:45 pm|
Leslie's key to success lies in his ability to develop and sustain relationships with young HS football players. He is GREAT at relating to these kids and attracting them into the program.
Many of us have failed to realize that this is where his genius mainly lies.
As long as he can do this, h...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| How is Quinn a 4 star? - Football_Freak on 11/25/13 at 10:29 pm|
Broke the national record.
Plays big boy 5A football in a football rich and competitive state.
Runs a legit and blazing 4.39 forty.
If he is not a 5 star, who is?...
| Tiger Rant|| DBU setting up for 2015 run to preserve the every 4 year NC game pattern - Football_Freak on 11/24/13 at 12:06 pm|
In 2015, RR, Tre and RickyJ will all be Jr's, and Paris will be a Sophomore.
Let's get the depth back on the Dline and some traditional Safety horses, and we'll be all set for a traditional shut down LSU D again in 2015.
I see promise in our future.

| Tiger Rant|| The Traffic Test on Nicholson - Football_Freak on 11/22/13 at 10:25 pm|
If those LSU officers block off one lane on Nicholson again, creating an artificial bottleneck that backs things back to the Miss River, I'll move the LSU operations management grade from a D- to a F-on-steriods.
Tomorrow will be a heck of a test for the competency or lack thereof of the traffic ...
| Tiger Rant|| Miles orchestration - the big picture - Football_Freak on 11/16/13 at 10:49 am|
Throughout his time when he was accountable for talent/coaching on the team, much of that time we lacked either/or offensive line talent, with some occasions of poor assistant selection.
Of course we had to persist through the numerous Malveto and Stud-OC experiments which we mostly knew where th...
| Tiger Rant|| Mid November, and major thread is about baseball - Football_Freak on 11/14/13 at 9:24 pm|
That speaks volumes about the LSU football state of affairs......
| Tiger Rant|| Recruiting/Coaching Ratio - What is the formula? - Football_Freak on 11/14/13 at 3:56 pm|
Miles and Saban are great recruiters. Saban is broadly considered an appreciably better coach.
So, how can Miles get back on course?
Is it possible for Miles to consistently out-recruit Saban?
If he goes toe-to-toe in recruiting, in 10 games, how many could he beat Saban?
| Tiger Rant|| INTERIM FEEDBACK - On a scale of 1 -10, where are you on Miles - Football_Freak on 11/12/13 at 8:05 pm|
10 - Miles is simply the best, and we're gonna hear him roar for a lot more.
9 - Miles is damn strong
8 - Miles is a high qawality coach
7 - Miles is pretty damn good
6- Miles is solid.
5 - Miles is Average as a coach - and we've seen the best of him at LSU
4 - Miles ...
| Tiger Rant|| SEC. SchmeshEC... - Football_Freak on 11/11/13 at 7:57 pm|
No way do I tow the SEC rooting banner. Screw that. I actually want the SEC to loose every once in a while, and since we Tigers have a very non-special 2013 edition, this is the best year to root for a non-SEC team in the BCS NCG.
Go anyone but the SEC!
Screw you if you have a problem with thi...
| Tiger Rant|| Les Miles = Charles Barkley - Football_Freak on 11/10/13 at 11:43 am|
He is as hard-headed and egotistical as Barkley.
Both are quirky and well known.
I know Miles has a national champoionship, and Barkely lacks an NBA championship, so that is not the prime element of this comparison.
They are the same because each of them would rather loose with their own ph...
| Tiger Rant|| Why will the defense perform better? - Football_Freak on 11/8/13 at 10:30 pm|
Will Louis actually get most of the play time versus Welter?
Will Tre and RR be more mature in performing up to their amazing-but-not-yet-displayed potential?
Will we get some actual speed on the field to blitz with the nickel/dime package?
Will Loston actually play disciplined against the ...
| SEC Rant|| 6 out of 7 at T-Town and 4-4 versus Saban: Can Les make it happen? - Football_Freak on 11/6/13 at 10:32 pm|
There is no doubt that Bama has a special thing going. 3 out of 4 national championships means you ARE THE TEAM at the current timeframe. Period.
Be that as it may, and it is unquestionably the case, this is about the mindboggling trend that is possible to happen this upcoming weekend.
| Tiger Rant|| First to 40 - Football_Freak on 11/6/13 at 5:56 pm|
Yes, LSU and Bama are historically great defenses, but neither have anywhere close to the personnel they normally have.
Both offenses are capable of significant scoring.
I doubt this will happen again in a long time where both have less-than-stellar defensive units at the same time, as well a...

Ole Miss wanted it more than us, but who thinks that Hill fumbling made the difference in the Ole Miss game?
What would we be ranked right now if Hill had not fumbles and Miles would not have sat him?
Yes, it is freakin hypothetical, so work with me...
| Tiger Rant|| 6 out of 7 in T-Town - What are the chances? - Football_Freak on 11/2/13 at 6:43 pm|
During the last 6 trip to T-Town, LSU has won 5. During this time span, LSU and Bama have both had strong programs for the most part.
This year, the LSU defense is probably about a C-, while Bama's is probably a B+
LSU's Offense (good Mett shows up version) is an A, and Bama's Offense is an A-...

| Tiger Rant|| Compete versus Contend - Football_Freak on 10/20/13 at 12:25 pm|
It seems that the LSU admin and decision makers have it as a goal to be competitive.
That is an Ole Miss like goal.
Ole Miss knows they cannot contend for championships on a year-in-and-year-out basis, so they compete for 3-6 years and then every once in a while, they rise up and contend for a...
| Tiger Rant|| Can Chief change? - Football_Freak on 10/20/13 at 9:21 am|
Sure, there have been in-game adjustments, yet when the game gets down to when it matters, it does not matter if He is coaching in Orange of Tenn or Purple and Gold of LSU, his philosophy is identical...
and Third and Chavis is highly-accurate as a description of his philosophy.

The title is a tease..But it is the truth about the rankings....If you take the offensive rank out of 14 teams and the same for the defense, and add up the total, Miss State has the lowest overall number in the SEC at this time...here is the link..

Ok, now that we know we have a legit offense with a QB that has grit, skill and consistency, let's look at this possibility
Florida and Ole Miss are far from given wins, but they are both looking more like wins than a few weeks ago.
TAMU will give us fits, but their defense is worse than UGA's...
| Tiger Rant|| Will we need to score 50+ to beat TAMU? - Football_Freak on 9/29/13 at 8:41 pm|
It would have taken upper 40's to beat UGA
Do we need to put up Oregon points to beat TAMU?
