“I would have to guess that we would continue on the path that we’re headed, and that offensively, we would maybe be as talented as we have been with some of the newcomers that will be here even in January,” Miles said after practice Tuesday night. “It will be a nice kind of pick-me-up on th...

I was just thinking today ... with all the hoopla about 13-1 from last year ... I wondered if one of the players would make a statement by requesting the # 14 and exhibiting some truly great leadership by owning the issue and keeping the team motivated to achieve the 14-0 goal....

I am a former yearbook sponsor for a high school here in Mobile ... hard to shoot and look at photos without thinking up those captions. Old habits die hard.
I am glad that you enjoyed them. :)...

not to be a big dork but what camera and lens did you use and where were you sitting?
I was sitting on the 50 yard line in section 103 ... about halfway up (where the aisle going up forms a "T," if that means anything). A little further than halfwa...

Any tips on photo hosting (PhotoBucket or what not) and linking?

I am still new to trying to figure out how to post photos here (finding a photo hosting service ... tips anyone?)
Anyway, I am posting links to my public photo album on Facebook if anyone is interested in viewing.
Enjoy (and Geaux Tigers)!

| Tiger Rant|| Pete Jenkins on Paul Finnebaum Show Wednesday - LSUTigerBand85 on 12/29/11 at 2:57 am|
Did anyone hear the interview?
Pete said that he "bleeds purple and gold but I cannot pull against Coach Saban because Saban has been so good to me and my family."
He said he did not watch the first LSU-Bama game and will not watch this one either. When Paul pressed him on what he would rather...

I am an eighth grade English teacher in Mobile.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Did the field at the Cotton Bowl have a drain crown? - LSUTigerBand85 on 1/9/11 at 1:31 pm|
I liked my position in the bottom of the L.
Once you got past the TTR, it was gravy ... right near the student section.
One of my favorite memories was playing the Star Spangled Banner and hearing those champagne poppers going off in the student section ... they sounded like field cannons!...

Los Angeles Tiger,
I was in the first row at the bottom of the "L" ... it had been raining hard the day before and you know how the field gets closer to the sidelines.
I planted my foot for the turn to the rear (in those great smooth-soled marching shoes) and when I transferred my weight, the ...
| Tiger Rant|| Did the field at the Cotton Bowl have a drain crown? - LSUTigerBand85 on 1/9/11 at 12:22 am|
I ask this because when the band was shown during the pregame, they seemed to have a horrible time keeping their lines straight (this happened in two or three lines marching down before the TTR and forming the LSU).
Then again, since it was on TV, if there was a drain crown on the field, the came...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Tulane Fans - LSUTigerBand85 on 12/29/10 at 11:03 pm|
From the way I have heard it explained in the past, in the old days (1940s-60s), if you lived in Louisiana and your family had money, you went to Tulane. Many people in that time period looked at LSU as a poor man's university. I heard this from my uncle who attended Tulane.
It reminds me of a b...

I have Jarrett second behind Zach (due to JJ's injury). I will put JJ second when he recovers. Jarrett has great throwing power but is just not mobile enough to get around Bama's pass rush.
Then again, it could be this old guy's decision making that needs to be benched. ; )...

last week. I was playing in my online dynasty with LSU when Jordan Jefferson went down with a fractured ankle (out for 8 weeks).
Zach Lee came in to replace him (no Dodger cash allowed in the OD).
Anyway, the game ended with an LSU win and JJ gets player of the game honors. Guess what? Mr. Br...
| Tiger Rant|| re: The 1988 football schedule - LSUTigerBand85 on 7/25/10 at 2:47 am|
To apply a semi-current argument to an 80s situation ... Arnsparger was wining with Jerry Stovall's redshirts and recruits.
When the well was running dry, he saw it was time to leave (I would love to see who Arnsparger recruited). This, I believe, led to Mike Archer's downfall and the eventual d...
| Gaming Board|| re: What is the best D to run? - LSUTigerBand85 on 7/14/10 at 12:08 pm|
Like Bug, I use 4-3 and then blitz and mix coverages from the Dime.
Word of caution ... when doing this, make sure you have your D Line hyped up and red first or else you may get trashed.
In the past (like 09 and 10 versions), if you switched from a 4-3 to another defense for the whole season,...
