Don't know if you noticed my posts, but I'm trying really hard to organize a road trip to Bama 1/25/14, in support of the guy's bball team. I'm trying to reach TD readers to generate interest. Apparently there has never been a bball road trip, so it's long overdue!
Is there a way that I ...

I've been busy.
I've reserved a bus - $65 return per person, including transfers from hotel to game.
Got a block of 15 Hotel rooms at the same hotel as the team reserved.
Got a block of 10 rooms reserved at slightly cheaper hotel.
Discussing a block of game tickets with LSU Bball operation...

I've reserved a 50 ppl bus. If we can fill it bus ride will be around $60 per person return, including transfers from hotel to game and back. Don't think you can drive yourself for that.
Waiting on hotels for group pricing. Likely around $120 per room for individual bookings. (Some hotels fully b...
| Tiger Rant|| Any interest in a road trip to Bama for LSU men's bball game? - Britgirl on 12/3/13 at 6:23 pm|
Just throwing the idea out there.
Game is on Saturday Jan.25th.
Approx cost for trip based on 4 ppl sharing a hotel room would be around $150 per person. Includes return trip on a luxury coach, bus transfers from hotel to game & return, 1 night in a hotel. It doesn't include meals or game tick...

I don't know if someone's wanting to start a thread on tonight's Bball game - real important game for us - can you put a note on your "rant closed" thread telling bball posters to post on the score board please & thanks...
| Tiger Rant|| Old spice Classic Hoops Tournament. Anyone going? - Britgirl on 11/21/13 at 8:07 pm|
My husband & I are going 'cause it coincides with a business trip to Pensacola, and a visit to relatives in Sarasota. So [b]OF COURSE[/b] we had to extend the trip to Orlando!
I really hope some others can come, but know it's difficult due to holidays and cost. :geauxtigers:...

Anthony is a really good kid, even if he has some trouble being on time and organized (the stuff that gets him into trouble).
Some of you may have already seen this article, if not take a look:
I'm pretty sure he'd be...
| Tiger Rant|| Anyone know the current status of Brian Bridgewater? - Britgirl on 11/16/13 at 10:28 am|
I'd almost forgotten about him. He was missing a credit and therefore ineligible to play until that was fixed.
He's enrolled, but unable to practice with the team.
It's a similar situation to Odo last year, but I read a comment from JJ that they were waiting to hear from the NCAA then he'll be rea...
| Help Board|| When will the Tiger Rant be unlocked? - Britgirl on 11/10/13 at 9:30 am|
Although I realize that football posts will be dominating still, I was hoping that by now (9:25am)it would be open again.
I'd like to start a basketball thread and have no interest in football.
Is there a way that any football threads can be re-directed to the Score board?
| Tiger Rant|| Men's Basketball (for a change! ) - Britgirl on 9/6/13 at 12:11 pm|
I know football is the most important LSU sport right now (& for the whole season :lol:)but I'd just like to draw your attention to the upcoming basketball season.
A top 10 recruiting class + great returning players means a competitive and entertaining season.
I'm encouraging you to come out and s...

The Men's basketball team, including coach Jones, Coach Leonard, and Tom Kelsey (Dir. of Basketball Operations) plus student managers, participated in the Ascension Parish Inclusion League's (A.P.I.L.) final TBall game of the season, yesterday.
APIL is an organization, run by parents and volunteer...

Tennessee fans a close 2nd.

| Tiger Rant|| Which LSU player is gonna step-up as leader in SEC Tournament? - Britgirl on 3/11/13 at 1:14 pm|
Who's going to put the team on his back? I think a player needs to take that role on, for us to go deep.
Carmouche and JOB are injured, so not expecting either of them to be able to do it.
Curious to know what you think.

There's going to be a pep rally for the team at the Double Tree Inn, Nashville, on Wednesday evening.
I know a lot of fans would like to be at the SEC tournament, but are unable to go for various reasons. I know that many fans would love to be at the pep rally and support our team.

I just called the ticket office there. The visiting player's family/guest reserved seating area are in section 124.
There are some tickets still available for the general public in that section. Should be some player family members there so you know you'll be near LSU fans for sure!
Also if you...
| Tiger Rant|| Bob Petit & 1953 Final 4 team honored at Sat. Game vs Miss St. Come out for it! - Britgirl on 2/13/13 at 10:34 pm|
Bob Petit, Joe Dean etc, deserve a nice turn out at the PMAC to celebrate their 60th anniversary.
The current LSU team deserves a good turn out to help them beat Miss. st. As well.
Game time is 4pm.
| Tiger Rant|| How can we get more people in the PMAC in spite of our record? - Britgirl on 2/10/13 at 5:01 pm|
And don't say "win more games", because real fans will watch regardless. Where are the TRUE fans? There's got to be at least 10-15,000 people interested in basketball in the BR area!
There's not much loyalty to the bball program and it drives me nuts!
I'm talking about generating in...

My husband & I will be at the Hilton Garden Inn's restaurant or bar before the game.
We'd love it if other fans join us. We'll buy you a beer!
Think we'll be there by 1:30 to 2;00pm.
The team is staying there and it would be nice for them to see supporters there, if they happen to come by...

Just watched Fla take Pressey right out of the game. Mizzou looked stunned on defense and didn't fight back anything like LSU did against Fla.
Forced Pressey to make [b]9[/b] turnovers!
Maybe we CAN beat Mizzou?

Dunno what time the boys got back last night, and dunno if they had school work to do today, but they worked their butts off this afternoon.
I was lucky enough to sit in on practice today, and if they were down after last night's game they didn't show it. The coaches had them playing extremely phy...
