| Tiger Rant|| re: If Welter's Job Is to Line Up the Defense, Why Is Defense Out of Position? - rjokerlsu on 9/25/14 at 6:35 pm|
In response to both jeff 70121 and the post below it, I agree with you, jeff.
And on the comment about Beckwith being in the game for a big t.d. run up the middle, there is plenty of blame to go around when it comes to LSU's defensive effort last week. Few, if any defensive players looked very ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: NBC Sports - Appears Miles' QB decision written in erasable marker - rjokerlsu on 9/25/14 at 6:29 pm|
I was trying to give at least a little optimism to some disappointed supporters.
I would hope Miles would make a change soon enough to give the Tigers a chance to upset Auburn, esp. if Jennings struggles at the start of that game as so many of us seem to expect to happen.
But let's see if we c...

I actually thought there were too many different threads about this topic, but this one was to me, worthwhile.
Pretty clever--Rant consensus based on the way Miles has done it most years is that he is very stubborn about this, but maybe there is hope.
This game is sure a great chance for Harri...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Miles announces Jennings will start - rjokerlsu on 9/24/14 at 11:35 am|
I just hope Harris gets enough snaps in this week's game and plays well enough so that the coaching staff is willing to put him in the Auburn game before it is too late....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Mawae says LSU offensive line is a disappointment... was "2nd choice" for O-line - rjokerlsu on 9/24/14 at 11:26 am|
Finally someone posted that many are rushing to judgement on Grimes who has just been OL coach here for four games.
Let's see what happens the rest of this season and how the OL recruiting goes....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Should LSU put a spy on Dak Prescott for the entire game? - rjokerlsu on 9/16/14 at 6:35 pm|
Might be worth some serious consideration. I would hope it would not be the same player every single play who does this.
Also, has anyone else that MSU has played done that yet this season?...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Do 2 TE's on running plays make that big of a difference? - rjokerlsu on 9/16/14 at 6:32 pm|
Seems like the coaching staff really likes Jeter. I suppose he's a solid blocker, but they haven't thrown a single pass to him yet. But I know they really have barely looked at any TE's, since the two bad experiences in the opener vs. Wisconsin....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Per 247-Matt Womack LSU OL Commit is visiting Alabama - rjokerlsu on 9/16/14 at 6:21 pm|
Yes, good point about Andy Dodd, but I don't think he is the first one who showed serious interest in LSU that Saban offered just to upset Miles and the rest of the coaching staff....
| Tiger Rant|| re: An update on Valentine - rjokerlsu on 9/16/14 at 1:21 am|
Does Billy G still harbor a grudge against LSU?
We know Valentine is highly rated-- we can reluctantly wait a year for him, though he would be eligible to play if he was at Bama.
By the way is Valentine participating in any workouts or conditioning program currently?...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Brad Nessler, Todd Blackledge, and Sweetheart..err..Holly Rowe to call game Sat. - rjokerlsu on 9/16/14 at 1:06 am|
Brad and Todd are far better than Verne and anyone he works with. Holly Rowe can't even mess up Brad and Todd....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why does the Offensive Line seem to be underperforming? - rjokerlsu on 9/15/14 at 1:39 pm|
This was like a season opener for #55. Many were glad to see him return.
But overall, I am not sure the line is as good as rated, but hopefully they'll meet expectations. It's a team game--the team is 3-0, but there is always room for improvement.
On a blog during the ULM game, someone aske...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Per 247-Matt Womack LSU OL Commit is visiting Alabama - rjokerlsu on 9/15/14 at 12:05 am|
I still think it looks good for the Tigers for Womack.
Do you think Saban & 'Bama try to get on LSU's nerves by making offers and trying to arrange visits to players either committed or seriously interested in LSU?
Seems like this is not the first time this has happened....
| Tiger Rant|| re: LF's hand gesture after the TD run last night?? - rjokerlsu on 9/14/14 at 11:58 pm|
This is even worse than last week--much ado about almost nothing--dabbling in minutiae, whatever you want to call it. Do we have to start noticing LF's hand gestures every time he scores a t.d.?...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Kenny Young - apparently missed on a good one - rjokerlsu on 9/10/14 at 6:33 pm|
Can't get all the great LA recruits--just glad the Aggies didn't sign him.
I know during the build-up to the 2014 signing class, many posters were projecting Young would make an outstanding college LB. Not sure they knew it would be quite this soon....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Travin Dural injured in car accident. UPDATE - Likely to play Saturday - rjokerlsu on 9/10/14 at 6:31 pm|
Good news that he is at least okay, but it was unfortunate about the auto accident.
Just LSU's luck--I see that Dural received some Heisman very early mention, since he leads the nation in receiving yards per catch & has posted some impressive numbers so far this season. Then read this thread, t...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why is LF returning kicks? - rjokerlsu on 9/10/14 at 6:27 pm|
Yes, I think the RB's at LSU are taught to let the hole develop, then really turn on the jets.
But as far as LF returning kicks, I have to agree with the opening post--I don't really like the idea of his doing this. LSU has lots of team speed & they will depend upon Leonard a lot to carry the lo...
| Tiger Rant|| re: ESPN Calling out Fournette - rjokerlsu on 9/8/14 at 12:56 am|
The old expression "making mountains out of molehills" comes to mind regarding this, or even much ado about nothing.
ESPN & other blowhards need to move past this....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Anyone else kind of feel bad for LF - rjokerlsu on 9/1/14 at 9:49 pm|
Relax, everybody. LF is just saving it for the Alabama game....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Your Experience with Wisconsin Fans - rjokerlsu on 8/31/14 at 4:52 pm|
They are cordial and a pleasant group of people. They seemed to be a pretty well informed fan base. I spoke with Badger fans at both a restaurant here and at the game. In fact one of them was a Wisconsin alum who informed me that they have not had a baseball team at Wisconsin for many years becau...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How *mean* is this team? - rjokerlsu on 8/26/14 at 6:33 am|
Along these same lines if a team can develop a killer's instinct by getting a lead, increasing it and putting their opponents away, it would surely be great. But yes it is way too early to tell and we must see a few games to know if the Tigers can develop this trait....
