re: LSU drumline during offensive plays back in the day? When/why did it stop? - Tigercat
SEC specifically has a rule that the band can only play after a play is whistled dead up to the point where the center is over the ball....

re: spinoff thread: Death Valley vs Seahawk's stadium - Tigercat
[quote]Their speakers play crowd noise, ours don't.[/quote] Even if that's true, and I've heard no evidence of that at Seahwaks games, that's not the key. Been to a few Seahawks Saints games up here, and if you ever find yourself in that stadium, listen to how much noise a small portion of the c...

re: Keiland Williams update - Tigercat
[quote]He was the best RB in 2006 & 2007[/quote] No one got a ton of carries in 2006, no one needed to be a workhorse with that QB/WR combination. Hester was used to perfection in 2007. Hard to argue with the results he got, even if Keiland was the more dynamic runner. Williams probably ...

re: T.Quinn vs A. Booty - Tigercat
[quote]I remember Booty was money and wasn't scared to make the catch across the middle. Is T.Quinn the same type of wr?[/quote] Booty's number 1 trait was his ability to get separation on the push off and a sharp cut; he had to do that because he didn't have the burners. (For a NFL comparison t...

re: What does it say about our QB situation when 3 QBs transfer - Tigercat
[quote]We recruited kids that don't fit into our system [/quote] Considering how successful our system was last year with Mett, and the differences in skill sets between Met and Harris, I don't think there is such a thing as a talented QB that doesn't fit our system....

re: Javi Sanchez leaving LSU (possible replacement in OP) - Tigercat
[quote]But those stats can't be right. Neither can what Rhymes said. Can't be true. Javi was awful according to everyone. [/quote] He either isn't good enough for a position at the LSUs of college baseball (he would have a similar job lined up elsewhere by now), or he doesn't have the passion f...

re: 2007-2008 Hornets named 29th best all time LA team - Tigercat
Turnovers are nearly as important as scoring plays. To ignore them because they are "one stat" isn't far off from ignoring TDs because they are "one stat." In both years the offense was amazing and the defense was vulnerable more often than one would like. But in 2009, the turnovers won games eve...

re: What your problem is with the new Star Trek films? - Tigercat
Action isn't anti-Star Trek, but has there been enough of Roddenberry's vision in the movies? I like the movies a lot, but where is the exploration? Traditionally, Star Trek is about exploration of the universe and of the human condition. The Wrath of Khan's spaceship standoff was great, but ...

[quote]Go back and watch the replay. He slid straight over the bag. It is the second baseman's job to get out of the way[/quote] He slid late, at the bag, in order to get contact. The rule says the runner must slide on the ground "before the base" for it to be legal. Most umps in college will in...

[quote]That was INCREDIBLY dumb by the runner going to 2nd. No way that they were gonna get the DP. [/quote] Exactly. The ump at 2nd called it right away, and called it exactly correct. If anyone wants to go all crybaby over the fact that the guy at first couldn't have been thrown out, be mad ...

[quote]And it is still laughable you mention Watkins and Edward as great.[/quote] The lineup had multiple great hitters, but no lineup has 9 great hitters. I never said that the team had 9 great hitters or that Edwards or Watkins were great individually. I find it laughable that you are the one ...

re: Does anyone want to fire Javi still? - Tigercat
[quote]First off you have a very loose interpretation of the term "great hitter". Watkins? Edward? Spencer Ware started games for that team for crying out loud. And most of the players you mentioned had good or great years. [/quote] Watkins had a decent OBP, and was a legit SB threat. You...

re: Does anyone want to fire Javi still? - Tigercat
My #1 example of Javi medocrity will always be 2011, which saw a lineup of: Mahtook, Rhymes, Jones, Katz, Hanover, Edwards, Watkins, Nola, and Ross. That is one of the more talented LSU lineups of all time, IMO. And yet the pitching took the fall that year, because Gausman was young and McCune w...

re: Bregman uses hitting instructor in New Mexico for recent improvement - Tigercat
[quote]You know what I'm saying. It was hyperbole. Just look at the stats I posted. I don't know what else to say. [/quote] Well let's try to be rational for a second and discuss what a hitting coach does. Do we really think he teaches top talent how to hit from scratch? No, of course not. He...
