[quote]And no Im not saying give Harris the reins now.[/quote]
I'm saying that. Anthony Jennings is a serviceable backup QB. He cannot beat a team if the running game is not working. He's a good system QB against rent-a-wins and teams without good defenses, like Kentucky. Against a credible d...

[quote]If this kid is good it won't matter[/quote]
Not really true.
If he's just "good" then he very well could be here five years (unless he is like Freak and thinks the NFL cares about his Rivals report).
If he's great, it won't matter.
The question is whether you let him play one ga...

Wat was our offense ranked in 2003, 2007 and 2011? I bet it was borderline top 25.
We have the RB (Fournette) to take us to the promised land. We have some really good WRs and I think Harris will ultimately be the guy and be better than any championship QB we have had (no offense to Mauck, Flyn...

The Tigers will not accomplish their goals this year (no NC, SEC title or SEC West title). But this year is still very important.
People do not like hearing the "we're young" excuse and I get that. We pay Les Miles $4+ million, our coordinators each make > $1 million and we expect them to tak...

A better question is why would you come out to earn a payday for yourself and your family and then screw it up royally by doing drugs?
Anthony Johnson is a life lesson for every other 4 and 5 star on the team. Lesson #1 - the NFL doesn't care about your rivals profile. People's bodies change in...

Houston is a very spread out city. The hotels by Reliant Stadium are not great and there is nothing to do over there but the tailgate/game. Downtown Houston has nicer hotels but it too is pretty dead on the weekend. Best area would be the Galleria area, at least for dinner/night life....

Very possibly. I probably put him at OT because we are so thin there.
We REALLY need the line to stay healthy next year and we need two or three OTs in the 2015 recruiting class. We're started off right with the Teuhema kid!

[quote]Harris behind Jennings[/quote]
You might be right. My theory here is that with the QB position, experience is really important and if Jennings got hurt in the first quarter, I expect Les would send in Rivers.
Now, Harris could light it up in the Spring and change the whole picture. Of...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Pre-Spring Depth Chart - Mike Linebacker on 2/6/14 at 2:46 pm|
I should have clarified that this is my shot at opening game starters (my opinion) prior to spring practice. I think Fournette is the main RB with Magee as the change of pace and Hilliard used situationally. Obviously, Hilliard and Magee will fight it out this spring to see who is the "incumbent" ...
