| Tiger Rant|| re: Coaches "Blown Out" in National Championship - drdrfaulkner on 8/19/14 at 4:54 pm|
My view: It wasn't Les Miles (or any other coach listed, for that matter) that got "blown out". The REAL LSU Team we saw for the previous 13 games never stepped on the field. It seems like the players were all awaiting a "spark" that never seemed to happen--like in other games when the Honey Badger ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Who will make the call on the starting QB for Wisconsin? - drdrfaulkner on 8/19/14 at 4:39 pm|
My opinion: If there is no distance between #1 and #2 (Harris and Jennings): 1. Let each play 2 series of downs and see who has the hot hand. 2. Let both start at the same time and keep the defense really confused. 3. Start Jared Foster in the Wild Tiger for a series and then rotate between the two ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: I already see a big problem with SECN - drdrfaulkner on 8/19/14 at 9:26 am|
I know this is the Rant, and people hereon aren't really highly opinionated. However, there seems to be a worldwide problem that seems to center on sports teams and their fans. Many elevate their favorite team to a "god-like" status and continue to worship these man-made gods to the point of insanit...

Steve was the brother of Ebert, another stellar LSU Tiger. Both played for the Eagles....

If we do, we will need some additional nicknames (to be qualified for Buga). I can see it now--in the nation of Wotongo we speak Buganese....

| Tiger Rant|| re: One guy no one is talking about but will ball this year - drdrfaulkner on 8/12/14 at 4:09 pm|
[quote]is the title missing a word? ball is not a verb[/quote]
As a verb, "ball" has several meanings (besides the vulgar one). There is a Greek word, though, "ballo" from which we probably derived the word "ball" that is translated as "cast" in the Old King James. It appears in I Peter 5:7 in th...

[quote]I read that each provider should have an overflow channel.[/quote]
Sounds good. Then we don't have to split time between games (or get blacked out). Here in Central Florida, I have found that some games have been blacked out even though the game was played 200-300 miles (or more) from my h...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Looking over the roster and wondering about the QB's - drdrfaulkner on 8/6/14 at 9:15 am|
I searched for info on Bergeron, but there is nothing in the googlings that indicates he is not still at LSU. He is on neither the depth chart or roster at Dandydon.com, but is on the roster at LSUSports.net....

What is interesting is the September 6 schedule, which lists 2 games for three different time slots (one of which is Sam Houston State at LSU). Of note also (as would be expected) is t...

My Dad graduated from LSU in 1950 (when I was 1 year old). As an earlier student (a few years before Mom and he married), he lived in a Dorm room therein. During some of the time he was there, he did a lot of snake hunting in Louisiana and contributed snakes to the Biology Department for part of his...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Fall Weddings...Zero Tolerance - drdrfaulkner on 7/23/14 at 4:30 pm|
Our wedding was at 7:00 pm on Saturday, September 17, 1983. Neither of us really seemed to care about the football games as the wedding event and being together that night. I had to check later about the football scores and was not really "up" about LSU football since the Tigers had lost the weekend...

I was told by someone at Dish yesterday that the SEC Network was going to be available at no extra charge to those on the America's Top 120 (AT120)and higher. I have the AT200 here in Central Florida, so whether or not Comcast includes it is a non-issue for us....
