| Tiger Rant|| re: QB Harris shines in practice. Miles: only game action can decide QB race - Manswers on 8/8/14 at 8:18 am|
No, there won't be another JJ/Lee saga. We had two below average QBs and Miles had to work with what he had. We have 2 QBs competing to the be the starter. There's no reason this can't be more like Russell/Flynn, Davey/Booty or Hodson/Guidry....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Decent SEC West Preview - Manswers on 7/29/14 at 1:37 pm|
It's not too hard to understand why the media are being cautious with us. We are replacing starters in all of the skill positions on offense. We have a true SO and a true FR at QB. We can expect a good season but we should expect about 3 losses, which would put us at best 3rd in the West. If we are...

What kind of prospect is Epps? It seems like folks on here rank him closer to Odo than Mickey. Why is that? Is he really raw or having trouble coming off an injury? I'm hoping he provides depth at the 4 or 5, assuming he doesn't have the handles or shot to play at the 3. I assumed he had better ski...

With our lack of depth at guard this year, any chance we can find a Charles Carmouche-type to fill a gap? Man, I'd feel so much better if we could just find someone like that for this year....

Given his measurables, I'd be shocked if Bridge gets more than 15 minutes a game at SF. Even though he hasn't shown he can shoot the jumper effectively, I'd prefer TQ at SF over Bridge. I'm hoping Bridge can be a poor man's Charles Barkley but that's asking a lot. Looking at this roster, Martin is g...

Graham has been and always will be a TE. He's one of the best TEs so he should command whatever salary he can. That being said, there's no way the Saints should be forced to give him top WR money because they used a franchise tag on him. The NFL considers TEs and WRs to be different positions. The S...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Top 10 LSU QBs - Geaux - Manswers on 6/5/14 at 1:31 pm|
Off the top of my head:
1. Bert Jones (with NO substitution by P. Lyons)
2. YA Tittle
3. Tom Hodson/with M. Guidry for a few drives
5. Mike Miley
6. Flynn/with Perrilloux for a few drives
8. Woodley/Ensminger combo

| Tiger Rant|| re: Is it safe to say Rettig is done? - Manswers on 4/3/14 at 9:32 am|
I agree that there are always folks that want the backup to be QB. That's not what I am arguing. I'm arguing that we shouldn't be speculating about Retting (a RS FR QB) transferring because "Les didn't give him a chance." Rivers had a chance but couldn't rise about the competition. Same with J. Rand...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Is it safe to say Rettig is done? - Manswers on 4/3/14 at 9:27 am|
Yes, I speculate that he is good enough to continue to be on the team and that he will be an SEC-caliber QB by his JR season. I speculate that both Jennings and Harris will, too. I think it is unproductive to speculate that Les did not give Rettig a chance or that Rettig is about to transfer. I also...

Exactly. No matter what the circumstances are Rettig is a RS Freshman. If he were a RS Junior, then it would be appropriate to speculate but not now. Some very talented players need more time to...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Is it safe to say Rettig is done? - Manswers on 4/3/14 at 8:58 am|
Can we please not start threads like this? This serves no purpose. Jamarcus Russell and Bert Jones were not even full-time starters in their second year in the program. If Rettig is seriously thinking of leaving at this point (regardless of the circumstances that him running with the 3's) he is bein...

They lost their top 2 centers - Nikita Wison (6'8" - grades) and Zoran Jovanovich (7'1" - injury). I think this was also the year that Tito Horford (7'1" - Al Horford's father) originally enrolled but then left/was kicked off before the season started. Oh, and Jerry Reynolds went pro a year early. ...

We overachieved last year. We slightly underach...
