Evidently a lot of you did not catch the reference to Lane Mestepey .
A dog pile cost LSU one of the top pitchers in the US in 2003. Lane Mestepey, our ace, was injured in a dog pile and had to take a medical redshirt for the entire 2003 season. He never reached the level of his pre-injury pitch...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Farthest ball hit in old Alex Box was by a non-tiger? - Pietra on 4/15/14 at 9:34 am|
“…even tiger stadium were often hit on the bounce” – sounds nice, but I seriously doubt that Tiger Stadium ever had a bounce hit.
Using Google Earth: from the old home plate to Tiger Stadium is 1,002’ +/-, to the Admin Building is 625’.

Your topic reads: “Do other teams fans make fun of our mullets?”

The city of Cheyenne had a population of 115,000.

You have to remember that calls go back many years and were based on the common practice at that time.
The official clearly had his right arm up prior to the fumble. The play is dead not upon the whistle, but when the official determines it is dead. This goes back to when officials wore the whi...

No. 1 is a two layer metal piece that was never used as an LSU logo – just something marketed by LSU
No. 2 has been around a while – popular in the 60’s+
No. 3 is what you get when you out-source your logo design to Himalayan hermits.

I have watched the games in Tiger Stadium for over 50 years and have never seen anything used to get Mike stirred up. During the ‘60’s they might bang on the cage with open hands – he usually just ignored them - but no one would ever even think of physically abusing Mike in any way.
