| Tiger Rant|| Les Miles: Give that man a raise? - tiger88 on 11/10/13 at 4:06 pm|
OK, I predicted a 55-17 Bama score a few days ago, and it turns out I wasn't too far off; in fact, I called it perfectly for LSU. As an alum and lifelong Tiger fan, my stomach turned to make such a call, but I've been following LSU a very long time and saw it coming.
I must say congrats to the B...
| Tiger Rant|| Bama 55 LSU 17 - tiger88 on 11/8/13 at 3:11 pm|
I have no faith.
The man, Les Miles, has proven he doesn't even know how many minutes are on the clock in crucial times in a game much less that they have a connection to a down, a series, a quarter, and therefore, a game and its outcome. He hasn't learned this fundamental and potentia...
| Tiger Rant|| if Miles' FB program were a ship at sea... - tiger88 on 11/4/13 at 4:57 pm|
and a direct hit by a torpedo (i.e. marked "Alabama") represented a loss for LSU, would you consider Miles' ship:
b) severely listing?
c) damaged, but readily repairable?
d) struck but a ship that can take many more hits and still be fine?
Me, I'm going with "b)"

| Tiger Rant|| am I the only one who sees the freight train coming? - tiger88 on 10/26/12 at 9:30 am|
this line with Bama -- 8.5, 10, whatever. :casty:
In all my years as a fan, which has been a goodly while, I've never been so concerned about a blow out against LSU, and I've never "bet" against LSU.
However, I think the Tide is going to embarrass the Tigers, and by at least 3 touchdowns.
| Tiger Rant|| Passing offense advances team... - tiger88 on 10/14/12 at 11:43 am|
glad to see that series last night where Mett threw like 4 straight completions, advancing the team in a fashion I've not seen since the T. Hodson days. Then we got into the redzone and fizzled out for lack of creative play calling. This might've been the drive where we decided to go for a field g...

to a reasonable degree this game, one that shows he truly, to use his own words, "has a want" for success, I just might boo and boo loudly.
Five years without a respectable offense, the 3-inches-and-a-puff-of-dust as his core offensive philosophy, around which is built an overall scheme that is p...
| Tiger Rant|| LSU: weak in the QB stable - tiger88 on 1/31/12 at 11:06 am|
seriously, after Mett we have basically an average bunch of horses in the stable, and I'm including all recent committments. And the scary thing is, we really haven't seen enough of Mett. And this is, in my opinion, an unacceptable liability to a program such as LSU's, or should be given the $ bein...

| Tiger Rant|| Why do you guys assume Mett will start next season? - tiger88 on 1/18/12 at 2:58 pm|
Given Miles' predilections for a run-oriented offense, are you sure Mett will be his first choice?
think about this for just a moment.
It's too early to tell, isn't it? Just as it's too early to predict Mett will be the starting QB lighting up the field with 50 yard passing routes....

A co-worker of mine, who is from Big 10 country and pulls for a Big 10 school, asked me a couple months ago if I had accepted Les Miles as LSU's coach, pointing out his record to date at LSU. I told him that he was growing on me, but there was something about him I couldn't quite figure out, and p...
| Tiger Rant|| Probabilistic quantum leap for JJ?... - tiger88 on 1/9/12 at 11:01 am|
JJ has played at times at one level, a high level, then regressed to a lower, then up again, then down, and so on. At some point, his "level of play" should stay at the higher level where he begins to perhaps intermittently reach yet a new high. Problem is he's got only one game left to get to t...

Want = ignited motivation, passion, desire
Process = mechanically following a fixed formula based on prior success
In the latest research on talent and achievement, on balance, Want should beat Process any day. I noticed in one of Les Miles' locker room sermons where he said something along t...

I've not even tried to look for the absurd from their fans, yet I noticed these rebuttals from 'Bama fans in the loss to LSU.
a) OT doesn't count; ergo, while Bama didn't win, they didn't lose either. Bama has sworn affidavits that they never agreed to the tie-breaker format when it was insti...
| Tiger Rant|| SECC game - helps or hurts? - tiger88 on 12/6/11 at 4:55 pm|
Did I read comments on here that the extra game hurts us some way? How?
I think on the contrary. With LSU having played the SECC game and with the long break gives Les time to take the additional lessons learned from this game to bolster strategy for the big dance. The team has shown at least tw...

No, I aint telling. I can't tell, for obvious reasons.

I respect the guy. But really, enough of your Michigan point of view of everything; our coach, and last night, the honey badger. STOP IT.

| Tiger Rant|| Why JL came in at the very, very end... - tiger88 on 12/4/11 at 9:11 am|
Miles told Tracey Wolfson at the half that there was a very good possibility that we'd see JL. And Miles didn't want to lie.
I'm not questioning Miles' decision to not play this kid, JL, but there has got to be something we don't know. I'll leave it at that, as outside of some inside info coming...

| Tiger Rant|| How much should Mett play vs. West Ky - tiger88 on 11/9/11 at 4:52 pm|
