I was at the Capital One Bowl when LSU and Penn State played. It was pouring down rain just before the game. During mid-week that day, another Bowl game was played, so the field wasn't invery good shape after the deluge. It was a light rain but started clearing somewhat. Everything was wet and a col...

This past Iron Bowl sort of reminded me of the Capital One Bowl game he coached when he left LSU (2005)--although everyone already knew Nick was departing.
On another note, I have heard a number of preachers AND football coaches who have denied they were leaving and then did. Perhaps it depends o...

I tore mine playing softball and still batted that night. Running to first was VERY difficult. Convalesced for a month and returned only to do it again. The BIG difference between Mett and mine was about 25 years, and my knee wasn't hyperextended. After a Physical Therapist showed me how to stretch,...

Zach--I know you may not be able to sustain much, but I believe you should be honored at the bowl game. I hope they let you dress out. 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...

I don't know about Louisiana, but we in Central Florida are inundated with Snowbirds who are Ohio State fans.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Distraction for Coach Control aka Saban?? - drdrfaulkner on 11/6/13 at 10:12 am|
If Bama increases Saban's salary, all the assistants will be looking for raises or opportunities elsewhere. If I were an assistant coach, and didn't get a substantial raise, I'd consider other opportunities. Coaches on successful teams are Cream of the Crop and get high considerations elsewhere. So,...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Isn't 80% a low 'B' ? - drdrfaulkner on 10/26/13 at 9:51 pm|
If I see this correctly, what the 80% represents is possibly a win-loss record. If this is LM's "exam," then his year-to-year scores (W-L) would be cumulative and possibly show reliability and validity. However, Les Miles was not hired totally on a win-loss exam score, but on how well his job perfor...

Neither. It's time for a non-Alabama team to be in the National Championship. LSU still has the chance to play in the SECCG but have nearly (barring a MAJOR meltdown of every team with no defeats at this point and a 67-7 LSU win over BAMA) been eliminated from the NC Game. However, I have seen some ...

Actually, the pivotal part of the 4th quarter came when LSU couldn't score the TD after the muffed punt.

It could be an instance similar to the idiom "Familiarity breeds contempt." Bama has been winning so much that some "fans" begin to take winning for granted, so the enthusiasm wanes for many. It could be the same as The President making a speech and the rest of us taking a "ho-hum" attitude towards ...

Several observations (opinions): 1. Just like in 1997, after LSU defeated #1 Florida, they seemed to let down and then lost to Ole Miss (however, unlike this year, in Tiger Stadium). There seems to be a trend over the years for LSU to get a bit "heady" and think they are better than they are. This s...
