Top 10 every year is not too shabby, and of course the SEC West gets more ESPN top 300 recruits than most other conferences do as a whole.
My only knock on Coach Miles, who I like, is his conservative play calling, predictable play calling, and dumb decisions like time management & discipline ...

Our inexperience at QB is directly related to coaching. There were several chances to let AJ or anyone at backup QB have some playing time late in games, but it never happened....

Great point Meauxjeaux, but we needed to be up by 2 TD's for it to be similar to what OU did last night. I loved how pressure on McCarron made him look very ordinary. Same thing happens to Brees unfortunately. That OU QB could elude the pressure and their screen passes over the middle were execut...

Oh you mean when Jefferson kept running that short side of the field option that Bama had been waiting for since 2 days before the game started?
I'm never mad when coaches try something new like play Jefferson when Lee is having a bad day, but running the same offense against a D that is clearly ...
| Tiger Rant|| Scoring on Bama's defense!!! Take note Coach Miles & Cameron - Tigerik on 1/3/14 at 12:42 pm|
The Alabama defense gave up 181 points this season. 121 of them to 3 teams: Texas A&M, AU, & OU. In their other 10 games they gave up only 60 points. That's an average of 6 pts/game vs. a 40 pt./game average against the 3 teams mentioned above.
After watching OU's win over Bama last night i...

Glad someone is saying it who others might listen to, but the question is will Les listen. He's got over 4 Million reasons to do whatever he wants to and not listen to anyone.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Guys it was just a Chik Fil A Bowl - Tigerik on 1/2/13 at 12:30 pm|
Clemson was averaging 42.3 pts per game all season. We held them to 25 with 100+ plays or 17.3 pts below their season average.
50 passes and 50 rushes. Imagine if LSU had rushed the ball 50 times. The score would have been 35-17
Our Defense played their butts off, even though we couldn't ...

Same thing happened to Rueben Randle in the NCG last year. He was a "non-factor" due to not being thrown to, and a QB who couldn't get him the ball.
Did anyone else see the over the db TD catch he made last week for the New York Giants who love him and are using him to his fullest. Eli, knows t...

I think the situations were very different in the 2 games, but my theory is that there is a connection between the Clemson and Bama games. This "whacky" play calling was a knee jerk reaction to not passing in the Bama game to clinch the win and catching hell over it I think.
If we play the odds ...

I heard this same excuse for the Bama loss, saying we didn't think it was fair to have to play Bama again so we weren't as fired up, but if we can't get fired up for a National Audience on New Years Eve we'll never be able to.
Sure it wasn't a BCS bowl but it was the best one last night and the o...

Clemson got 6 FIRST Downs on penalties. 6 of LSU's penalties resulted directly in first downs and I'm pretty sure LSU would not have given up all 6 to their offense.

#6 should have been doubled and chucked at the line all night and we win, especially on the 4th and long. To let him run free into routes was awful.
Offense lost the game, and it wasn't our right tackle, it was Mett not seeing the entire field, forcing a ball into coverage when we were threateni...

And a QB who can't get out of his own way or move his feet. Do you think that would have bothered Boyd? Heck no, he would have moved up under that rush and made them pay by running it.

Sorry if it's been said already but Miles looked embarrassed after the loss and he should have, horrible showing tonight. HE & his offensive coaches lost that game. The offensive play calls, ONCE AGAIN, doom a better than our opponent team to a loss.
