For those interested, Jamal Adams will be on "Off The Bench" tonight at 7.

Moscona just played something on AFR. Hunt Palmer recorded a postgame interview with Jarvis and he had some interesting comments.

He was just on AFR as I figured this would clear things up for people.
[quote]He was enamored with Nick Saban since he was a sophomore. The allure of playing in their defense was something very important to him. This had very little to do with anything LSU did "wrong" and more that he wanted t...

| Tiger Rant|| Our guys deserve credit for a whale of a ball game. - Mattwells90 on 11/23/13 at 10:41 pm|
People carried on about how Mett didn't have a signature win. I think he ended that conversation today. Really happy for him. DJ Welter played much better ball along with Lamin Barrow. I also felt we saw our secondary begin to grow up today. There's been a lot of negativity around the program these ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| LSU making a push for 2015 Top 100 OT Sterling Jenkins. - Mattwells90 on 11/22/13 at 11:35 am|
Per Shea Dixon. He's a literally massive prospect from Pennsylvania.
| Tiger Rant|| Zach Mettenberger appreciation thread. - Mattwells90 on 11/11/13 at 12:01 am|
I always liked Mett's toughness. The guy took an absolute beating last game. He refused to lay down and quit. I wish Zach the best on the rest of this year and a long healthy NFL career. I'm proud to have ZM as our QB.
I'm absolutely disgusted with our offensive line for letting our leader get...
| Tiger Rant|| The decline is real, sorta. - Mattwells90 on 11/10/13 at 1:03 pm|
After watching the Alabama game last night something has become abundantly clear to me. In a way LSU is in decline but not in the sense that most people are alluding to. Most are claiming this to be a decline into 90's era however I feel this season is about the low point of it. I also think th...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Scout.com saying Hootie Jones may have already made decision. - Mattwells90 on 11/8/13 at 11:13 am|
It's an insider article but the caption sure insenuates that he has told his mom where he wants to go. Not sure what this means for LSU that he may be decided before his OV to either LSU or Alabama.
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Not sure why all the panic over next years offense. - Mattwells90 on 11/7/13 at 2:04 pm|
I love what Mett has done along with Hill, OBJ, and Landry. I however feel like if this class comes together and finishes like it's expected to, the offense could be even more explosive next season. Leonard Fournette at tailback is a better athlete than Jeremy Hill. The guy is incredible. I love Met...
| Tiger Rant|| What if Tyrann Mathieu was still on this team? - Mattwells90 on 11/4/13 at 7:01 am|
People forget this was the year Ty was attempting to come back for prior to the arrest with KH and JJ. How different would this defense look with the Honey Badger still on it? I still think they have issues with him but they maybe make more big plays. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Could it be current defensive players are a bit "uncoachable"? - Mattwells90 on 10/27/13 at 12:37 am|
I've watched LSU for some time now and I've paid close attention since Chavis arrived. I bleed LSU but it would be intellectually dishonest to not admit the truth on the defense LSU has always fielded a defense that is fast, physical, and disciplined. I wonder if this years players aren't taking the...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| 2012 recruiting class statistically explains LSU defensive woes. - Mattwells90 on 10/21/13 at 1:26 pm|
Most people argued that LSU could not have a talent problem because we get the cream of the crop on state every year. But what happens when the in state talent is sub par? These rankings are according to rivals which we can argue has a bias but it illustrates the point.

| LSU Recruiting Board|| Shea Dixon on AFR - Mattwells90 on 10/14/13 at 4:55 pm|
-Obviously covered Ben Simmons. Huge commit and is a program changer. Biggest basketball commit in a long time, bigger than J Martin (and that's no slight to Jarrell)
-Patterson was not a take to get BS. He's a good player in his own right.
-Sione Palelei does indeed have an ACL injury and w...
| Tiger Rant|| Section 236 - Mattwells90 on 10/13/13 at 11:46 pm|
I've only gone to LSU games since 2009 but I've noticed that section 236 (north end zone under left side of scoreboard) is always the last place to fill up and usually if there are empty seats, it's there. Is there a reason for this? Is that part of the student section? I was always curious about th...
| Tiger Rant|| The A&M Ole Miss game is going great for LSU in regards to next week. - Mattwells90 on 10/12/13 at 10:45 pm|
LSU has to go to oxford next week as we know. So far this game is going perfect for LSU. An A&M blowout would be the worst scenario for next week. It works out either way because if OM wins, they have the victory hangover from an emotional win. If they lose, it's heartbreaking and they fall to three...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Hootie Jones' actions indicate LSU - Mattwells90 on 10/10/13 at 10:46 pm|
Wanna know why most insiders knew Cam Robinson was going to Alabama? He spent much more time at their camps than he did at LSU's camp. He took every chance to visit Alabama that he could. He maintained that LSU and Alabama were 50/50 but his actions indicated differently.
Lets fast forward to Ho...

I remember hearing stuff like this weeks ago. With the trouble in the secondary you wonder how much meat there is to this.
[quote]The word is the staff is trying to get another true freshman, Rashard Robinson, ready to step in for Mills and move Mills to the third cornerback spot. [/quote]
| Tiger Rant|| Is it time we stop banging on welter? - Mattwells90 on 9/30/13 at 7:11 am|
At least just welter. A lot of people love to pin our defensive problems on welter because he isn't an adequate replacement for K Mint but I'm yet to see a thumper physical LB on our squad and that includes Lamin. Kwon has played ok but isn't lighting the world on fire. I just wonder if welter has b...
| Tiger Rant|| The communication of this defense looked like Saints defense last year. - Mattwells90 on 9/29/13 at 9:46 pm|
I take kwon and barrow at their word. They were quoted saying that communication was our biggest issue saturday. If you read a lot of the Saints defensive players comments this season on the improvement, they say that last year they were constantly confused, playing uncertain, and simply didn't know...

One thing I really love about this years team is our ability to get out to quick starts. We have been able to jump on teams early and coast to wins mostly. When you look at the rosters you have to say.
Mett > Murray
Gurley = Hill
LSU WR's > UGA WR's
LSU O line > UGA O line

| Tiger Rant|| Why does LSU play best as an underdog or when backed into a corner? - Mattwells90 on 9/23/13 at 10:27 am|
Any reason for this? I've noticed this a lot under Les Miles that every time we seem like we're going into a game we can't win, they play well. South Carolina last year, after Florida people didn't give us a chance. After auburn in 2010 we beat Bama. It just seems like doubting the tigers or countin...
