Coming off a national championship season, Nick Saban took his team on the road to play a talented team, a team largely comprised of the same players he had been embarrassed the year before on his march to glory. Early into the ensuing season, this talented team appeared to be still suffering a han...

| Tiger Rant|| LSU Defensive Speed - The_Pistol on 3/22/12 at 2:46 pm|
With Hatcher and Francois running a near 5-second 40 yd-dash, is there any doubt that the front 7 will be overall faster in '12 than it was in '11?
It's also surprising the Baker ran a 4.88 at the combine.
With the exception of Claiborne/Simon and possibly Taylor/Loston, the defense will be as f...

| Tiger Rant|| Bama is synonymous with #2 - The_Pistol on 11/19/11 at 11:38 pm|
If LSU beats 'Bama twice in the same season to claim an undefeated, undisputed National Championship, I propose that Bama be forever synonymous with #2.
I just filled up on Taco Bell, and now I have to take a "Bama."
"Al Gore finished a close Bama to GW Bush in 2000."

| Tiger Rant|| LSU faces former Fighting Irish O-linemen. - The_Pistol on 10/10/11 at 1:10 pm|
Last week, LSU easily handled Florida's OG, Dan Wegner who starts for the Gators after starting 19 games on the O-line during his 4 years at Notre Dame. Wegner, a Florida native, was granted a 6th year of eligibility by the NCAA but decided to transfer to UF only after Notre Dame refused to medical...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU/Bama Nov. 5 - I'd love a tie. - The_Pistol on 10/9/11 at 9:21 pm|
This is just for the fun of fantastical speculation. If fanciful hypotheticals aren't your thing, just quit now.
Nobody necessarily wants a rematch in the NC game. But what if the first matchup were undecided? If the Nov. 5 Clash of Titans game is called as a tie late in the 2nd half due to ...
| Tiger Rant|| Public Service Announcement - Getting drunk at a game - The_Pistol on 9/15/11 at 2:49 pm|
It's no surprise that LSU fans as a collective whole love to drink at football games. And according to researchers at the University of Minnesota, getting drunk at the ol' ballpark and hopping in your car to drive is like a national pastime.
| Tiger Rant|| Mississippi State - Looking Past LSU? - The_Pistol on 9/14/11 at 10:46 am|
When the masochists at MSU's football scheduling office decided to give their Bulldogs 5 days of rest between a road trip to Auburn and a Thurs. night game versus LSU, surely they assumed that the LSU game would be a loss. It's the only explanation. Most teams try to schedule a cupcake or a bye we...

[quote]When asked about who he thought was the toughest running back to bring down in the SEC, LSU linebacker Ryan Baker didn’t hesitate with his choice. He remembered his struggles with him, could see his face and his jersey clearly in his mind. But his name? Not so clear. “I was really impressed w...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU's smashmouth identity has historical strengths and weaknesses (long) - The_Pistol on 9/6/11 at 1:12 pm|
Now that Week 1 is behind us, there's no doubt about LSU's identity. LSU is the bare-knuckled pugilist of the 1920's, built to brawl, bleed and bruise the opponent for as many rounds as it takes for that man to drop.
LSU will win with a punishing defense, a strategic punting game, and a grinding...

but instead of kicking a football, I'd like to see a Tiger eating the opposing team's mascot then laying some tigerdroppings on their sideline.
If anyone with GBFT can make this happen, thanks in advance. ...
