Saw many of his freshman games and almost all of his varsity games at home. Was at the game when he broke the NCAA career scoring record. He kept passing the ball instead of shooting, building the drama it seemed. Finally got a breakaway layup. Cow Palace went crazy.
His most amazing performan...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Who was a better coach while at LSU, Dale Brown or Charlie Mac? - kjacksonp on 1/9/14 at 7:20 pm|
For improvement in status of a program from start to pinnacle: Dale Brown without a doubt.
He was a great recruiter, had uniquely designed defenses that confused even really good teams, BUT had no clue about offensive strategy--street ball was as good as it got.
His failure to take Shaq, Ch...

Ole Miss--historically, after Tulane way back, our biggest rivalry. And they don't know how to act like they've done it before when they finally win one.
TAM--again, historically a big rivalry

Never hated him. Did not appreciate his dishonesty when being recruited to Bama. I saw him apologize recently for that lack of integrity (more or less his words) on the CBS special done on him.
He made a mistake; not going to hate him for that. Never hated him for going to Bama. It was the bes...

| Tiger Rant|| re: The Rant, Week in Review: LSU has not improved during this season. - kjacksonp on 11/15/13 at 2:29 pm|
I do think the attitude of our fan base is BCSCG or the season is a loss--meaning that the UGA loss made the season a loss as a whole to many fans.
Decades ago, a team could have 2 or 3 losses and still play a "meaningful" bowl game. In '65 LSU was 7-3, not in the top 10, and beat #1 Arky in the ...
| SEC Rant|| re: Do Auburn fans think they can really beat Alabama? - kjacksonp on 11/14/13 at 3:32 pm|
Saban will put 8 in the box, shut down the read option, and dare them to pass. Unless the passing attack is being hidden (7 passes against Tenn. with the only TD being for TD) they don't have a chance.

With the dollar up in value gold and silver have fallen. They seem to keep bouncing off of about the same resistance (high 1200's for gold, around 20+ for silver).
For those who are interested in buying either gold or silver for "safety" against fiat money inflation or hyperinflation, is this a...
| Tiger Rant|| re: INTERIM FEEDBACK - On a scale of 1 -10, where are you on Miles - kjacksonp on 11/12/13 at 9:27 pm|
8 as an accumulator of player talent and coaching assistants with ability.
6 when it comes to achieving consistent production throughout games.
8 based on record.
