I was there for that a few times in the early 80s. I was probably 6-10 years old. It made an impression and got the crowd wound up. They should bring that tradition back!...

| Coaching Changes|| re: Why are LSU fans so excited? - rusty w on 12/10/13 at 8:22 pm|
Because it will feel good to no longer have to face a coach, who we once loved, as a mortal enemy every year. We wanted him to be emotionally connected to our school...to love it like we do. We thought he might have a soft spot for LSU (national championship in 03) when he left for Miami. I would gu...

I saw him 3 weeks ago in Jacque Imo's (uptown New Orleans). We were both waiting for a table at the bar. I shook his hand and told him I'll never forget when LSU won the SEC in 2001...watching them beat Auburn, then Tennessee from N. CA (home at the time) and seeing that flag getting run around the ...

Saban jump hugging his douchebag qb, then the smug 1/2 smile he had on his face during the post game interview. He was unable to contain how happy he was to rub it in tiger fan's faces. He can say its "just another game" all he wants. He wants to beat LSU worse than anyone on their schedule. The gam...

My old man was a Navy brat who moved around every few years as a kid, so they had no true hometown. My Grandad & Granny were born in Cow Creek, KY (poorest county in KY) and Hazard, KY and had season tickets on the floor at Rupp. My pop and his two brothers are huge UK basketball fans.

Remove yourself from situations where you have potential to be tempted. Don't even go there...
Don't make it difficult on yourself. You'll be tempted when you least expect it, so why set yourself up?

I started at LSU in the fall of 1994 and left in the spring of 2001. The transformation over that time period was significant. Dinardo deserves BIG props. The "bring back the magic" game set the stage for some great wins/seasons/recruits/bowl wins. The man got the ball rolling BIG TIME. We were 3-8 ...

He used to drive to the Berry to coach me for track every now and then. My old man was kind of obsessed and one of his friends in BR dropped coach Garland's name. I went to LSU a few times to do some workouts with him as well. A very interesting character. There was a pack of people being coached/wo...

I saw him play in '93, my junior year, against my school (Catholic of NI) in our gym. He was guarded by one of my classmates who is the best white athlete I've ever seen first hand. My friend is one of those people who is almost head and shoulders above everyone around him at every sport he tried. ...

Both coaches set up their defenses to shut down the other team's running game. They essentially said beat us with the passing game.
Bama could do it and we couldn't. I don't know how the coaches could not have planned for that. Every dumbass fan on this site knew Saban would plan to stop the opti...

National media, BCS, etc. "give" Bama a rematch and they win:
Bama is not even #1 in the SEC, but is #1 in the nation....makes no sense at all.
We earned the right to not have to play them again by beating them at their field on 11/5. Its not fair that after running through one of the toughest...
