| Tiger Rant|| T-Bob cut-up video (YouTube) - NorfolkVATiger on 4/6/12 at 12:27 pm|
T-Bob was one of our best linemen at getting to the second level and taking down linebackers, and we were fortunate (IMO) to have him as a utility interior lineman the last few years. He had some limitations too - struggled with larger, more powerful interior defensive linemen, that's for sure - bu...

Good stuff if you like to understand what the other guys are doing. I hit a lot of Georgia Tech websites before the Chicken Bowl a few years ago and it was nice when the game arrived, to actually recognize the plays as they happened, what the reads were, what counters might come out of a formation....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Two Texas HS Coaches Defend Lyles (Link) - NorfolkVATiger on 3/19/11 at 7:43 am|
Nice to see another side to the story presented. After Trevon Randle's high school coach made factual innacuracies about when Randle got interested in LSU that are easily disproven (by Shea's article from 12/3), and the writer and his editors made no effort to do any fact checking, I was wondering i...
| Coaching Changes|| Remember What Skip Bertman Said in 2007? - NorfolkVATiger on 1/8/11 at 8:31 am|
"Les won't go to Michigan, he just wants them to offer him the job so he can turn it down."
That was in September of 2007 after UM lost to Appy State and the talk first started. I always thought it was a very interesting thing to say. Maybe he was blowing smoke, but I wonder if there isn't some...

Yep, 100 snaps vs Mississippi State on Saturday night for their defense. Then a late-night trip home to Arkansas afterwards.
Think they might be a little tired this Saturday afternoon? I do....
| Tiger Rant|| Shep isn't just a finesse guy - NorfolkVATiger on 4/30/10 at 11:42 am|
Watching this video again, I didn't remember Shep breaking so many tackles or carrying guys for yardage after contact. Guess I forgot or didn't notice - he keeps his legs churning, and consistently gets yardage after being hit.
On the last play he carries a Bama player for another 4 or 5 yards a...

| Tiger Rant|| Here's a stat for you - Jordan Jefferson in 2nd half - NorfolkVATiger on 9/21/09 at 3:39 pm|
Jordan Jefferson is #5 in the country - tied with Colt McCoy and Tim Tebow - for best completion percentage in the second half of games.
By that time we're so frustrated from the first half (and drunk?) that it doesn't register?
| Tiger Rant|| LSU, Miami lead with 41 on NFL rosters - NorfolkVATiger on 9/17/09 at 4:29 am|
LSU and Miami had the most former players on the rosters (41 each), followed by Texas (37), Southern California (36) and Ohio State (36), then Georgia.
| Tiger Rant|| Why no pulling guards this year? - NorfolkVATiger on 9/14/09 at 4:52 am|
Pulling the guard has been a staple of our run game under Crowton/Stud. Until this year - we hardly did it at all against Vandy.
Have we changed our OL philosophy to more zone read?
Or are we afraid to pull the guard without having Quinn Johnson to pick up the unblocked defensive lineman, whi...
| Tiger Rant|| Only 2nd time Vandy has lost by 14 - NorfolkVATiger on 9/13/09 at 9:30 am|
since the start of 2008.
Only UF beat Vandy by 14 or more last year. Nobody else beat them by 14 in all of 2008.
Vandy is a pesky team with a good D that just hangs around on every one they play. I'm damn happy with the 2nd largest margin of victory over them in their last 15 games....
| Tiger Rant|| First Offensive Formation on Saturday? - NorfolkVATiger on 9/1/09 at 4:33 am|
I'll guess 3 WR, 1RB, 1TE.
More often than not, LSU opens 2 WR, FB, RB, TE, but with the FB situation I'm guessing they go 3 WR, especially since DB is a weak spot for UW.
Another other bids? 4 WR? 2 TE?...

Interesting - will LSU run it this year?
If so, who will play the various roles (McFadden, Felix Jones)?
Too bad so many of the highlights are against LSU :wah:

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Name the Les Miles "sleeper" recruits? - NorfolkVATiger on 7/24/09 at 4:07 am|
Curious who the Les Miles recruits that sort of came out of nowhere, and have had an impact on the field, might be. Guys that when they were recruited, nobody really knew much about or that weren't highly rated by the recruiting sites.
Richard Dickson maybe, I don't think he was real highly ra...

| Tiger Rant|| Excellent Q&A with Les Miles at Fan Event - NorfolkVATiger on 5/24/09 at 6:05 am|
He actually answered some tough questions directly.
Yes, he thinks Harry Coleman starts at OLB and Kelvin Sheppard backs up both MLB and OLB positions.
Yes, he thinks Shep ends up at QB down the road.
He leaves open the competition for starting RB. That was a bit of a suprise (thought that...
| Tiger Rant|| Have any Washington Huskies fans showed up yet? - NorfolkVATiger on 4/21/09 at 7:55 pm|
I don't remember seeing any on the Rant so far.
I checked out a couple of their websites and they seem more interested in blaming Ty Willingham and Emmert for the state of their program, while trying to remind Oregon and Cal that there's more history at UW and they are just upstarts. Not much i...

Haven't seen this posted here yet, it's a very nice video of last year. Not just highlights - tells the story of the season, and some of the bad plays are there at the beginning, like the tipped ball to Harvin and some of the picks, but it picks up steam after that.
I think it's really well made...

Terrell Pryor had a pretty good true freshman year...and he hasn't got the prettiest throwing motion, not even close.
Nice highlight video...will Shep get enough snaps this year (wildcat, whatever) for him to match this?

| Tiger Rant|| How does Chavis line up his CBs? - NorfolkVATiger on 1/18/09 at 6:59 am|
Does he keep them as left and right CBs all the time (as LSU has in recent years), or does he line them up based upon ball position (field and boundary corners), or does he flip-flop them based upon offensive personnel?

I know I'll catch grief for this, but I can't shake the thought that - if (God forbid) JJ is hurt, or ineffective - that the time off has allowed Jarrett Lee to get back mentally into the game.
