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...

[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 ...

[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...

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....

[quote]But those stats can't be right. Neither can what Rhymes said. Can't be true. Javi was awful according to everyone.
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...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: 2007-2008 Hornets named 29th best all time LA team - Tigercat on 6/9/14 at 11:51 am|
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...

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 ...

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...

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]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.
Watkins had a decent OBP, and was a legit SB threat. You...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Does anyone want to fire Javi still? - Tigercat on 5/27/14 at 9:49 pm|
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...
