I just read through the entire "Best arse whooping LSU has given an opponent in the last decade thread"
Before I even opened it, VT in 2007 popped into my head. It is also the overwhelming most popular answer in the thread. This is not by accident-LSU fans want more if these games in Tiger Stadium...
| Tiger Rant|| Will 2015 LSU/SEC Football Schedule be another "Bridge" Schedule? - Smoke Dinardo on 1/14/14 at 1:16 pm|
In other words, when they finally do publish the completed 2015 football schedule (could be April, could be July, who knows?), will it be like the last 2 years where it's a bridge schedule and our East opponents make absolutely no sense?
Or will the SEC finally have a format that is universal for...
| Tiger Rant|| Future Game in Football with BYU? - Smoke Dinardo on 1/7/14 at 3:36 pm|
Found this with a simple google search of "2015 LSU football schedule."
I HATE not knowing who we are playing in upcoming years. I hate how they are "postponing" (canceling) the only good games (OU, ASU). I know the unkno...
| Coaching Changes|| Will Petrino benefit from any big coaching changes? - Smoke Dinardo on 12/13/13 at 12:49 pm|
Saban to Texas and then Bama hiring Petrino would be as close to a strorybook ending as I can think of.
Just curious if anyone else thinks Petrino might somehow benefit because it seems like if Texas does get rid if Brown, even if Saban does not leave Bama, it will have a huge domino effect....
| Tiger Rant|| If Saban goes to Texas, does possibility of Home and Home increase? - Smoke Dinardo on 12/11/13 at 11:17 am|
Pipe dreaming to think we may play in Austin because even if this did happen, we all know in today's pussified world it would be a neutral site game in Houston.
But if Saban goes there I can see this happening. Both he and Miles have alot of balls, think they would win, and would want to recruit ...
| Tiger Rant|| Iowa has always been in my Top 5 Most Hated Teams - Smoke Dinardo on 12/8/13 at 9:35 pm|
I've always hated them since I was a kid. Initially, it was because they were the team that hurt Alvin Mack in The Program. Then, of course, the Capital One Bowl debacle (I was there). In fact, I would say they are my 4th most hated team in the country.
1) USC-obvious reasons
2) Texas-because th...

| Tiger Rant|| Why are we playing Kentucky at home again next year? - Smoke Dinardo on 11/27/13 at 3:42 pm|
I have never been more confused about anything in college sports than this bridge schedule BS-----just seems like there is no method to the madness.
I am fully aware of the old rotation of opponents from the SEC east so no need to remind me. It's obvious the SEC heard the cry from LSU when ESPN t...
| Tiger Rant|| Coach Sean Payton at LSU/A&M game - Smoke Dinardo on 11/25/13 at 1:36 pm|
Did anyone else see him? I saw him going in the front gate about 10 minutes before kickoff. He had a 25 year old girl with him.
I sit in Sec 421 but the guy in front of me had binoculars and let me see him-he was sitting in the suite directly below the Billy Canon sign. He deserved a relaxing Sa...
| Tiger Rant|| Does Cotton not take us even if we beat TAM? - Smoke Dinardo on 11/12/13 at 2:37 pm|
If we lose on 11-23, at 8-4, I think we go to Peach Boel and will probably play some rediculous ACC opponent.
If we win on 11-23, some have us predicted to go to Cotton and play Texas. Even though I'm upset about the record, if we beat Texas in the Cotton I think it would be a memorable season. M...
| Political Talk|| Louisiana GOP Candidates for Governor in 2015 - Smoke Dinardo on 11/6/13 at 4:28 pm|
My first post on this board. I want to see the response. Out of all the "name recognition" GOP candidates rumored to run for Governor of LA in '15, who would you like to see the most (as Governor) and who would you like to see the least? Mine are:
Most- John Kennedy
Least- Scott Angelle
| Tiger Rant|| Did anyone actually at LSU when Saban was coach have run ins with him? - Smoke Dinardo on 11/6/13 at 11:26 am|
All this don't hate Saban talk got me thinking----did you ever actually meet the man?
He got here my junior year and his last year was my final year of grad school. So I was a student the while time he was here.
During his final season in 04, I think before the Vandy game. A friend got me into...

Last night's WWL Channel 4 in NOLA sports segment quoted Miles as saying "I have had no problem getting the team motivated to play Alabama-I could not get the team motivated to play Furman, but I guarantee you that is not a problem this week".
If even the players cannot get motivated about playin...

| Tiger Rant|| Possibility of LSU/USC Home and Home with Orgeron or Del Rio - Smoke Dinardo on 10/4/13 at 3:44 pm|
Both have Louisiana connections. Del Rio's daughter went to LSU. Orgeron is from the bayou. The chances of this happening are much better if one of these two takes over as USC Head Coach.
| Tiger Rant|| LSU vs Colorado - Smoke Dinardo on 9/30/13 at 9:58 am|
I remember having so much fun at Arizona State in 2005 because it was something different and in another part of the country.
I also remember seeing a home and home on the "future schedules" list with the University of Colorado with dates somewhere between 2006-2010. I circled it on the future s...
| Tiger Rant|| Does anyone know why we rarely played Auburn in the 60s, 70s, and 80s? - Smoke Dinardo on 9/22/13 at 1:36 pm|
When they showed the series history last night it made me think it was low for another team in the West. That prompted me to go to tigerdroppings LSU football history and there I found we only played Auburn once in the 60s, twice in the 70s, and three times in the 80s.
I don't know much about SE...

Was just reading another post about LSU traditions and it reminded me of how sad I was when I came into TS for the first game a few years ago (someone can help me on the year) only to see they had removed this sign and replaced it with, of all things, advertising. I think was comparable to The Intim...
| SEC Rant|| Why do idiots on TD call it " USCe"??! - Smoke Dinardo on 8/29/13 at 10:55 pm|
A simple google search will tell you the University of South Carolina was founded in 1801 and the University of Southern California was not founded until 1880-that's 79 years later. Most of us know this country was settled east to west. It seems like we should refer to that school in Cali as "USCw",...
| Tiger Rant|| Will the "market" ever abolish cupcake games? - Smoke Dinardo on 8/23/13 at 10:51 pm|
Been a season ticket holder from 1998-2012. Last year went halfsies with a friend. I left BR and going to every game is now impossible. When I saw the 2014 schedule, I am now inclined to relinquish my tickets and just scalp for the 3 or so games I want to go to each year. This is 100% due to the cup...
| Tiger Rant|| Method to appease you idiot neutral site supporters - Smoke Dinardo on 8/16/13 at 7:23 am|
The only thing worse than wasting a marquee non conference game on TCU in Dallas is the fact that we are playing Wisconsin at not one but two neutral sites. I have said many times how the neutral site thing is ruining college football and have heard all the supporters' arguement s and don't buy Amy ...
| Tiger Rant|| If you could pick one team to play on "Rivalry Weekend" who would it be? - Smoke Dinardo on 7/30/13 at 7:38 am|
Regardless of all other rivalries. Would it be Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas (keep), A&M, Florida, Tulane, Ole Miss, or someone else?
Mine would be Texas A&M-----now that they are in SEC, it is just the most natural to me becuase we actually have alot of history. I have always loved the Arkansas game...

Mine is 2000 Tennessee in Death Valley, hands down.
| Tiger Rant|| Are all of LSU's NCG Appearances "Controversial"? - Smoke Dinardo on 7/25/13 at 11:33 am|
2003-we will always hear USC should have been there and they would have beat us. And why do they get labeled a co-national champ just because the liberal communist Hollywood media gave it to them when that is exactly why the BCS was created in 98? (See co-champions Nebraska and Michigan in 97).

Ironically, all of mine are variations of things SOME teams and conferences already do. So I guess what I really want is CONSISTENCY across the board,at least for the 6 BCS conferences.
1) NO team in a BCS conference shall ever play an FCS school non conference. It's one thing for ULL to play McN...
