Size wise, more likely to pitch for LSU than be a scout team QB under dad.
If he wants to play football, he needs to be realistic and check out smaller schools.
If he wants to play baseball, he may be a higher prospect there.

Ball control is your best weapon and that's what LSU did against A&M last two years while containing edges on defense with speedy DE's.

With future sec format coming in May to address bridge scheduling, we might break the record on the rant.
LSU's sec schedule has been tougher than anyone else over the last 20 years. Bama may have had Tenn every year but LSU had to contend with Spurrier who revolutionized offense...
| Tiger Rant|| re: The state of LSU football 4 years from now? - nicholastiger on 3/7/14 at 11:23 am|
Since the Saban rule did not pass, I expect the SEC to be a hurry up no huddle wide open breakneck field of non stop offense during SEC play. Chavis with Miles blessing has junked the size and physical nature of the LSU defense started by Nick in favor of smaller more athletic players to defend the...

I like LSU's chances if we can get to the bullpen this weekend
Brett Haan (16.20 ERA, 5.0 IP, 9 ER, .435 OBA), Kyle Wood (297.00 ERA, 0.1 IP, 11 ER, .900 OBA), and Patrick Kenney (45.00 ERA, 1.0 IP, 5 ER, .500 OBA).

The sad thing is you know who is going to pay these lawsuits, you the fan!
And if the players don't watch it - it's those fans they are on the verge of driving away from big time college sports.
Without the paying public, the NCAA, ESPN and TV can have college sports, I'm almost done with it....

Tenn has best possible coach they can get being on the border of a cold weather/warm weather team. Obviously he had a history at Tenn as assistant so he knew what he was getting into.

Not in favor of 10 second rule.
I think there are other ways to handle it.
Keep running clock like NFL after first downs because with TV timeouts game is long enough especially during SEC play.
Or they could allow a team to carry timeouts unused from first half to second half....

25 sec travel roster but I thought the SEC allows teams to bring an extra player or two in case of injury, they could only dress out if there is an injury.

Definitely chemistry issues, some players have been in doghouse all year including Ballard and Youngblood - would not be surprised to see those two move on after season.
Caldwell doesn't look like the easiest coach to play for either.
Get Kramer to lure Kim Mulkey in here....
