re: If our hitting continues to suck should javi be let go mid season? - tiger lady
Brady Wiederhold was the pitching coach when Smoke was at LSU. Mainieri brought his assistants with him from Notre Dame (Rooney and Godwin I believe)....

re: Baseball team arrives at Alex Box at 1 PM today. GEAUX support if you can! - tiger lady
I took my son out to the Old Box to meet the 2008 team when they came back from Omaha. That day has so many special memories for him. He is 15 now and just told me that we need to do the same thing again now because this team was such a fun team to watch and they really need their fans now. I ...

re: Speaking of Smoke Laval - tiger lady
Was just about to post that. Zinsman was recruited along with Todd Linden, if I remember correctly, to bolster our hitting in an effort to try to get Skip back to Omaha for his last year in 2001. I think that Zinsman was asked to leave the team after that one season. Any other old timers remember...

re: Post Season Section Rotation - tiger lady
It's even worse when the visiting team fans sell the tickets to the games their teams are not playing in. Then you get to watch LSU fans who don't usually buy tickets sit in your seats while you are stuck out in left field. Just letting you know about that because it will happen. We got bumped tw...

re: Tanner was offered by LSU...correct? - tiger lady
PM did try to run Louis Coleman off when he first got here and got rid of so many players. If I remember correctly, Louis was told that he could try to walk on if he wanted to stay with the team. Things like this are glaring examples of his inability to evaluate talent. Everybody knows that had C...

re: Hard SEC #s for those who continue to complain about LSU hitting this season - tiger lady
I remember that Brad Hawpe actually did hit for more power, and then he got really frustrated after one of the many changes to the bats to tone them down. He was not hitting homers like he had been in prior years. Hawpe gave loads of credit to Turtle Thomas for working with him on his swing to sort...

re: LSU baseball all time defensive team by position - tiger lady
Nola is an outstanding shortstop, but I agree with you about Andy Sheets. We used to yell out "Hooooover" in our section every time a ball was hit his way because he just vacuumed it up. Nothing got through....

re: Win or lose should Javi be relieved of his duties? - tiger lady
Thank you! That is absolutely what a hitting coach should be doing. It is something we have not seen in our program since Javi arrived and we won't ever see it again until we hire a real hitting coach. ...

re: Why is no one blaming the players for poor hitting? - tiger lady
Sorry this is a bit long, but you asked a question, so here you go: Because the problems at the plate are not seen with just a few individual players. The problems are pervasive throughout the entire line-up and they have not been addressed at all, by this coaching staff. They cannot recognize ...

re: to our seniors - tiger lady
Thanks, guys! We have enjoyed watching you play the last four years. We will surely miss you for your skill and leadership, but we'll miss you most for the way you always played with the pride and heart of a Tiger. Thanks for four great years of Tiger Baseball! Good luck!...

re: Pat Cantwell and Ryan Eades in the Cape Leauge. - tiger lady
That is true, but that was BEFORE Alan Dunn arrived to work with our pitchers this past Fall. The best Cantwell can give them in the way of a scouting report will be based on outdated information regarding Ryan's pitching tendancies and the variety of pitches he had available to him at that time. ...

re: Batting: Sanchez's Fault or Lack of Talent? - tiger lady
Catman, I agree with you 100% about both Grewe and Sanchez. We lost Rooney and Godwin to UCF and replaced them with these two questionable hires. LSU baseball deserved much better than Maineiri hiring friends and family, and we are going to pay for that until Javi is gone and a real hitting coach is...

re: Does Nick Saban film other teams practice? - tiger lady
I remember that, but Stoops didn't complain until AFTER we beat his team. He brought up the fact that the Tigers had entered the Superdome before his team had finished their practice session on the first day the teams were allowed in the Dome. I do not know how to find the news story, but I rememb...

Does Anyone Remember Video From 2003 LSU vs GA Games? - tiger lady
It was made by a Tiger fan and featured the traditional CBS SEC football music. It had lots of clips from both the regular season game and the SEC championship game. The thing that made it really great was that it focused on all of the talking heads that said, "The best team did not win today" aft...

re: Auburn Band & "Eye of the Tiger" - tiger lady
I think that was the game honoring Bill Conti (LSU Alum) who wrote the score for the first "Rocky" film, and I think some of the subsequent ones as well. If I remember correctly Conti was invited to conduct The Golden Band from Tigerland for that part of the halftime show. Am I remembering it corr...

re: Does Miles get a contract extension? - tiger lady
Are you kidding me? No way! This coach will continue to hold us hostage for several more years with his present contract which is already way too fat! Hopefully the people in charge of these decisions have learned that they are supposed to be looking out for LSU, not a coach. ...

re: Does Les Miles Contract get rolled over after this year? - tiger lady
Please, no. I hope that those now in charge of making this decision exercise some common sense and fiscal restraint. Their job is to do what is in the best interest of LSU. Those in charge a few years ago gave away the candy store to Les Miles and his agent. Both of those gentlemen are making mo...

He more than owed us that call after suddenly deciding to squeeze the strike zone on Coleman to start the bottom of the 9th. That high pressure situation does not happen otherwise. Fantastic game by all of our Tigers tonight!...

re: Game tonight - tiger lady
Truth is stranger than fiction! I'm giving away my age here, but back in the late 80's they really did use an Acadian Ambulance helicopter to try to dry out the field! It was covered in standing water, and they had to try to get the regional tournament games in to determine who would advance to Om...

If you have a really good picture of Death Valley (in the size that you want it to be on the cake), just bring it to a bakery and ask them if they can scan it onto rice paper. Gambino's here in Baton Rouge just scanned the book jacket of the last Harry Potter book onto rice paper and then put it on...
