[quote]Didn't both of those qbs have first round draft picks playing in front of them? [/quote]
Hard to imagine Tannehill and Manuel having more pure talent. What set them apart was experience.
I'll stick by my original point that Jennings has an edge simply because he has a full year in the sy...

[quote]Should the most talented player play?[/quote]
Eventually, yes. But we should all realize there is more to the QB position than just talent. Wasn't Winston and Manziel the most talented QB on their team as a true freshman?
I don't expect Harris to redshirt, but I'm not expecting him to t...

Like the thread asking if Harris will produce like Winston did last year? :lol:
Too many fans discount a redshirt year or limited playing time, especially for a QB. Jennings should have the edge right now. I'l...
| Tiger Rant|| re: where are visitor section seats now? - JustSmokin on 6/30/14 at 9:41 am|
Effective this year, the SEC requires home teams to provide a minimum of 2,000 seats in the lower level, 1,000 of those in a single block. The remaining tickets can be located throughout the stadium.
Some will be moved to the new upper. Not sure what sections, tho.

[quote]None of them get drafted this year if they come out IMO after this epic run. [/quote]
Teams don't draft based on team performance and coaching. It's all about individual potential and upside. Mickey would be easily drafted. JOB may be a late 2nd round pick. No way on Martin.
| Tiger Rant|| re: What gets us in the NIT? - JustSmokin on 2/12/14 at 10:16 pm|
We were 19-12, 9-9 last year and didn't make the NIT. With 4 road games left, finishing 18-12, 9-9 isn't out of the question. Then we have the SEC tourney.
If we can't win a road game, NIT might be a stretch....

It's clear there isn't much coaching going on with the defense. Bottom of the league last year and again this year. If we're not going to stop them from scoring, at least tell the players to stop fouling on that end....

| Tiger Rant|| re: When will LSU start selling beer at games? - JustSmokin on 2/12/14 at 4:55 pm|
My guess is LSU doesn't want to be the leader in this area. There are inherent risks and expenses associated with doing this. LSU will likely wait for someone else in the conference to start selling beer and see how it goes before making that decision.
| Food and Drink Board|| re: Crawfish pot for boiling - JustSmokin on 2/12/14 at 1:14 pm|
You should consider how many sacks you will be boiling. If it's normally 1 sack, an 80 or 100 qt pot will work. If you like to add more than just corn and potatoes, go with a 100 qt pot.
120 qt pot if you need 2+ sacks.
