No Ego because hw didn't have him going in the draft. I think Hill is about right based on how the NFL looks at running backs now. Harris and Zierline are very impressive with their scouting. They talk to a lot of scout and review a lot of film. I think its all about right...
| SEC Rant|| re: LSU fans are overrated. - Houston Texas Tiger on 12/13/13 at 2:46 pm|
The out of state isn't an excuse for why it should happen its a fact dor why it does happen. Historically lsu has been predominantly in state and now they are recruiting a lot more out if state for academic reasons. I know bama does as well the difference is bama is more national. You also have a to...
| SEC Rant|| re: LSU fans are overrated. - Houston Texas Tiger on 12/13/13 at 2:32 pm|
Geographically lsu is at a disadvantage for traveling. You will see the same challenges for Missouri and ATM long term when they start going to the same bowls. You need new locations to create an excitement in traveling. We also spent bowl type money for the game in dallas this Year.

I think 8 to 10 teams is the max. Maybe have a wildcard type with the top two teams getting bye weeks....
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU Construction Pics - Houston Texas Tiger on 11/27/13 at 2:35 pm|
The issue with Bamas stadium is the 50 yard line seats are a long way away from the field. It is more circular where LSU's goes straight up from the sideline. Bama's stadium is one of the best in the country, but I still prefer a night game in Baton Rouge....

| Tiger Rant|| re: Look for the LSU cheerleaders to be holding these Keep It Clean signs - Houston Texas Tiger on 11/20/13 at 9:58 am|
The best way to handle the STTDB is to play it during commercial breaks. That way it doesnt offend the cbs audience and tiger stadium still gets to do the cheer. I say anything that keeps the student body engaged in the game is a great thing. IT beats the wave. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Will the weather play role in attendance vs TAMU? - Houston Texas Tiger on 11/20/13 at 9:21 am|
If you watch the Auburn game it was pretty full at kickoff. Then the real rain hit and kept coming. Once we got up big at halftime I think a lot of fans had had enough of it. I think Atm will be much better, people will come prepared. And there are a lot of fans that really just wanted to see th...

If you consider yourself more of a driver enthusiast go with the vw. Much better handling and responsiveness. If you are more about a car getting you from point a to b the corolla or camry are the best choices. Actually the civic or accord would probably be the best if you are ok with their styling...

[quote]that like gets me so mad you don't even know [/quote]
Does it really? Its not a knock on JFF. I think he is the most dynamic player in college football but can get a little careless with the ball at times. I just think Evans is a more complete player and has a higher upside. I Think Evan...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Can we all agree the Tigers are AVERAGE ... - Houston Texas Tiger on 11/14/13 at 8:38 pm|
Average would mean we are ranked around 60. We are not average, we play in an above average league and are talented but can lose when we play poorly. This year we are about where we have been on average historically. All teams have flaws, some are more defined than others. Any reasonable fan saw...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU needs a win to salvage the season against A&M - Houston Texas Tiger on 11/13/13 at 6:23 pm|
I think the ATM and South Carolina wins were big last year. The year before winning at bama was huge. To say miles doesn't have big wins is not appreciating what has been accomplished. There have been some great teams over the years that have lost games. For those who say ATM isn't a big game and im...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Just Back From Tuscaloosa--Impressions: - Houston Texas Tiger on 11/12/13 at 7:25 pm|
I have mentioned this before but Lsu does a horrible job with their alumni fund raising. My wife graduated from the university of Texas and they have student workers who call every 3 months requesting donations. Lsu should do something similar. Even if every alumni donated just $100 a year it could ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Just Back From Tuscaloosa--Impressions: - Houston Texas Tiger on 11/12/13 at 4:18 pm|
I agree with the OP. The strip is really nice, good to see the campus and nearby downtown areas blend together. The buildings aren't architecturally as interesting as LSU but they are spread out and has a good college feel about it. I think LSU's sorority row is nicer than anything on bama's camp...
| SEC Rant|| re: Bama-LSU second most watched college football game of 2013 season - Houston Texas Tiger on 11/12/13 at 3:34 pm|
A bama loss had huge implications for a handful of teams. They aren't as polarizing as Notre Dame but they are getting there. Also the LSU bama game historically has been a great game to watch. Through 3 quarters it still was this past weekend....
| SEC Rant|| re: Les: It could have easily been a 24-point score for us with a half to play. - Houston Texas Tiger on 11/12/13 at 2:34 pm|
I agree totally with What miles said. But I think Bama scores 38 regardless and I am not sure how many more points we would have scored with a different score near the half. The issue with the Fumble is it was demoralizing. I found more issue with some of the self inflicted penalties. I still thi...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU programs worse loss Saban or Emmert? - Houston Texas Tiger on 11/12/13 at 2:11 pm|
They didn't hire Miles because he was the opposite of Saban. Why would they do that, we didn't run Saban out of town, he got an opportunity to coach in the NFL. The other candidates were petrino and Jack Del Rio who are both very different from Miles.
I think Emmert was a very knowledgeable pre...

We would be the most inconsistent team in the SEC thats for sure. Lets see how everything plays out before we start saying we are the best. Sometimes the Best team in september and october is not the best team in Nov and December. Also the best team doesn't always win either....
