| Tiger Rant|| re: Jim Hawthorne retiring in 2016 - drdrfaulkner on 2/12/15 at 9:58 am|
I thought no one could replace John Ferguson--and I still believe he was the best LSU has had, but--whether errant or not in some calls--Jim has been the "lighthouse" guiding a lot of us to LSU broadcasts over the years. Here in Central Florida, I can (faintly at times) pull in WWL and monitor what'...

[quote]Was just a part of LSU sports. I haven't had to listen to him in a good while, plus it's not as easy anymore living in Florida.[/quote] I live near Melbourne, Florida, and can pick up WWL (in spite of a little interference from Hispanic and other stations). Whether or not JH is positive or no...

What would be really interesting is to have Fournette and Brandon Harris as 1-2 in the race. Of course, I am dreaming again--I might be awake when the recurring offensive nightmare happens again......

| Coaching Changes|| re: Steele was not fired at Clemson - drdrfaulkner on 1/13/15 at 11:10 pm|
From what I read, the offense in the last game he coached as DC fell completely apart. It was a complete team fail--the defense did give up over 500 yards, though. Everyone is pointing to that as a black eye, but that is one game out of many. I have a "wait and see" approach, but I will cheer 100% f...
| Coaching Changes|| re: List of LSU DC Candidates to date...can you help me list them? - drdrfaulkner on 1/13/15 at 1:29 pm|
Another couple of questions: 1. How many of those listed were either given better contracts and/or extensions as a result of their names appearing on Tiger Droppings? 2. How many administrators actually read Tiger Rant or Coaching Changes to see if any of their personnel are being considered?...
| Tiger Rant|| re: les would burn the clock out instead of score - drdrfaulkner on 1/13/15 at 8:32 am|
Perhaps running up the score at that point was Urban's way of indicating what dominance OSU had in the game. The score could have been far worse than 42-20....

[quote]2012 - Out of it by early November [/quote]
Had LSU beaten Bama that year, they would have possible gone to the SEC Championship game, so I differ that the team not making it was totally on the shoulders of Les Miles. I seem to remember some other factors that played in the mix. ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: so what happens if harris wins the job - drdrfaulkner on 1/6/15 at 4:09 pm|
I get the impression there is some sort of strategy going on in the mind of Les Miles and the LSU Admins that--though it doesn't make sense right now--will in time. Perhaps this season was a testing for something greater to come--or there was some trimming down that needed to occur. Chavis took the ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: My best case QB scenario - drdrfaulkner on 1/6/15 at 4:00 pm|
If Harris redshirts next year and comes into his own the following year--her might forego his senior year and bolt for the NFL. Don't count on "two years" if he redshirts next year. And possibly--it is not safe to even count on any if he redshirts....
| Tiger Rant|| re: My best case QB scenario - drdrfaulkner on 1/6/15 at 2:32 pm|
All this talk of adding OSU QBs is a little obnoxious to me. First, LSU recruits Harris then lets Jennings start. Harris has ONE bad game (Auburn) and then doesn't play much for the rest of the year. Jennings has several mediocre games and they leave in. I just wonder if Harris's weaknesses are stro...

College Sports (in order):
1. USA Jaguars

4. Anyone who plays Notre Dame (with exception of #3 above).
Pro Football: Saints and then whoever has former LSU play...

So how does that work when facing a hurry-up offense? Chavis (in the booth) communicates to Miles and then Miles to the defensive captain? Seems like the play would be over before the captain...

I am not for firing him, but the antithesis of this might be how much the program loses over those same years for a coach who can't live up to expectations?
Speaking of expectations: they must be spelled out in the contract, and there are more factors to a coach being relieved of a position than ...
