It's baseball. Even with a record setting regular season, this team (and any other team) could drop a game unexpectedly and fall into the losers bracket. All depends on pitching match ups and getting timely hits.
As Skip used to say "This is not football, this is baseball." That's why the re...

The announcers saw that and said that the umpire awarded Raph home plate but that it didn't matter because Raph got there anyway. The catcher was clearly moving up the line to field the ball, but Raph got to him a split second before the ball did. Looks like the ball might have hit Raph just as he...

Any time that ESPN wants to highlight LSU in a favorable way, I'm not going to complain. Inside the park home runs are rare and the cacther/runner collision on the base path ended up with Raph flipping head over heels, landing on his back and crawling to tag home plate.
All-in-all its a play ...

You talked about the reluctance to bench JJ. Im dorry, but Lee played a shite ton fir a back up. You also say this offense needs a dual threat. So if Mett struggles one game we should switch qbs? Les Stuck with mett last year and he has no escapability. He is going to play the qb he thinks g...

The most exciting thing is that he acknowledges that with good QB play this team was capable of winning multiple championships over the last four years. I hope Mett plays well this year and that Rivers, Jennings and Rettig all develop into effective QBs under Cam's tutelage.
But, here is the mos...

Rivers completed 70% of his passes for an average of almost 20 ypc.. Jennings completed 38% of his passes for an average of about 12 ypc. Doesn't look like much of a competition.
Everyone needs to relax and enjoy what we have. We have a clear No. 1 in Mett. Rivers this year under Cam's tutela...

With a good OC, we would have won at least one in the last two years, IMO. Too early to tell how the new QB's will perform in real games, but with the talent that LSU has across the board, average QB play in a well-designed offense will make LSU hard to beat. ...

I hope so. And I hope that Rettig is the truth, too. We haven't had two SEC caliber QBs since MF and RP in 2007. We needed both that year to win it all. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU letting the QBs get physical... - Fabius on 4/15/13 at 9:09 pm|
I love it. Mett proved his toughness last year. He stood strong and took some brutal hits but still stepped into his passes and delivered the ball. He's earned that green jersey.
For the backups, make them earn it. Find out if they can face a big league pass rush without flinching. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Who is going to be in line for #2 QB? - Fabius on 3/24/13 at 7:46 am|
Rettig was 4 for 6 with two touchdowns in the scrimmage. Pretty impressive for a first scrimmage. Jennings was only 5 for 11 and no TDs, but rushed for 25 yards on 5 carries. If he can get his completion percentage up to 60% consistently, then he might be a legit dual threat.
Rivers was 4 fo...

Terrence Magee was the leading rusher in the scrimmage and NOLA reported that he could be a Darren Sproles type player for LSU. Sounds like we once again have a four deep RB rotation, even withou Brazil.
Having said that, I think that they have to find a way to use Brazil's speed on offense if ...

I'll be curious to see his 40 time at the combine. Supposedly Tenn passed on him because his 40 time at one of their camps wasn't mpressive. If he runs a slow 40, then it would be easy for the scouts to decide that he is too slow to play CB and too small to play safety or linebacker.
On the o...

LSU recruits 4 star QBs almost every year. We probably have more QB talent on our roster than 90% of the FBS schools do most years. This year we have a top 5 pro style and top 5 dual threat QB coming in.
The problem is not lack of talent at QB or any other position on offense. ...

Stupid idea. Sends wrong messages at multiple levels:
1. To Mett is says that you don't have to be a man and face your fears. It's ok to hide from them.
2. To teammates it says that your QB, the leader of your offense, is weak, fragile and needs to be protected.
3. To the media it says...

If what you are saying is that for the last 5 years LSU has had less talent on offense than 75% of the nation, then that is inexcusable. Too much talent in this state alone to let that happen.. If LSU has the talent but it has not executed for five years, that is also inexcusable. Either way, the ...

I can't believe the posters who still want to blame our players rather than the coaches. Look at what you are seeing on the field with Bama's offense tonight. Three receivers flooding zones, throws to TEs and RBs, runs outside of the tackles, one back sets, no fullback leads. A real offense.

Wasn't Tenn '05 the game where Miles tried to call a time out at a change of possession? I remember Pelini sprinting down the sideline to grab Miles so that he wouldn't waste a time out.
My impression then was that Miles had better have a top flight assistant next to him on the sidelines during...
