I guess Gorilla Ball is way gone. With all the bunting, perhaps we ought to call it "Squirrel Monkey" or "Capuchin Ball" (perhaps ther latter would belnd in with the organ playing during the games).

Not that it matters much, but I am seeing license plates using the word 'alumni' quite much. The word 'alumni' is plural--'alumnus' is singular, even if you graduated twice (like I did from the University of South Alabama). The word 'alum' is a chemical term--short for hydrated potassium aluminium s...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Tony Robichaux on 910am - drdrfaulkner on 2/25/14 at 9:57 am|
The present CWS format has a best-of-two format. I only see one game on the regular schedule. I remember a few years ago when Florida beat LSU during the regular season only to get knocked out by LSU later--when it counted most. A loss to UL@L this early means nothing in the big picture. ...

There may be something other than a chance to play QB involved as well--remember, he came from Penn State just after the Sandusky firing/football program shutdown. We do not know all the details of the Bolden departure, but perhaps Rob is grateful to have an opportunity to separate himself from the ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Should we just say the hell with it and start claiming bogus titles? - drdrfaulkner on 1/31/14 at 3:31 pm|
Perhaps the question to be asked is if any major rating service recognized anyone as National Champions the year the team claims they won it. I mean, Joe FlyByNight may have recognized a school as winning it, but is that NC legitimate when considering all the major rating services? If none was award...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Did Bo Jackson ever play in Alex Box Stadium? - drdrfaulkner on 1/27/14 at 9:08 am|
According to the Wikipedia, Bo was injured in 1984--no stats. He played in 1983, 1985, and 1986, and I would assume he played at Alex Box. Unfortunately, college baseball was a "second tier" sport at the time, and game stats are difficult to locate. Jack Lamabe was the coach in 1983; Skip began the ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Boring Sunday, LSU has a losing/.500 record against these football teams UPDATED - drdrfaulkner on 1/27/14 at 8:46 am|
Back in 1959--the game after the "Halloween Game"--Tennessee was leading 14-7 when LSU scored to make it 14-13. Rather than agreeing to a tie, LSU went for two, and Billy Cannon was stopped short of the goal line. Final score was 14-13. That game was LSU's only loss until the Sugar Bowl. LSU played ...

Seems like everyone seeks to think Bama is the "mecca" for football. Yes, Bama has been successful over the past few years, but not over the last century. I sense that something is "slipping" at Bama and the success will begin to diminish a good deal as other SEC teams (and those outside the confere...

If the SEC is the measuring stick, the rest of the country will catch up or employ a better success strategy.

Let's not forget the 1959 Sugar Bowl game against Clemson: LSU's first score came in the third quarter, as Billy Cannon threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Mickey Mangham as LSU went ahead 7-0. The defenses from either team would not allow any more points, as LSU won the game. Billy Cannon was named Su...

I was at the Capital One Bowl when LSU and Penn State played. It was pouring down rain just before the game.

Perhaps you could play one down, and allow the crowd to have a chance to thank you corporately as you leave the field, this time in honor. The way you leave LSU sho...
