| 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....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Name I haven't heard much. - rjokerlsu on 8/20/14 at 6:17 pm|
Are we certain that Diarse will start?
Seems like the Tigers have plenty of candidates for both WR & TE positions....
| More Sports Board|| re: Pat White Odd Fact - rjokerlsu on 8/17/14 at 9:38 pm|
That has been a few years, but if memory serves me correct, I believe that is right--that Saban tried to recruit him as a DB.
Seems like he was classified as an "athlete," i.e., capable of playing more than one position on the collegiate level....
| More Sports Board|| re: Pat White Odd Fact - rjokerlsu on 8/17/14 at 5:06 pm|
Hope he continues to star for them. Apologies for bringing up bad memories, but wasn't White an LSU commitment before switching to West Virginia?...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Kirk Merritt - rjokerlsu on 8/17/14 at 12:15 am|
Just hope Merritt goes to a school outside the SEC, if he doesn't select LSU.
I know this is no consolation to many of you, but remember, as we clearly saw in the 2014 class, you can't get them all. Tigers will still have an outstanding class, with or without him!
| Tiger Rant|| re: How many true freshman play against WIS? - rjokerlsu on 8/17/14 at 12:05 am|
That list sounds reasonable.
I haven't read as many reports on what Teuhema and Garrett have done as the others that are listed.
Hope they can contribute a lot. Also saw Teuhema may have played some LB last year at Keller High and was wondering if he will eventually play a lot of snaps on def...
