Hey Saints board,
I'll be in from Cali for christmas (home is baton rouge) but would love to catch the home game vs. the Bucs. On Ebay/Stubhub/etc. the tickets are in the 110-115 range minimum for terrace and that seems a little pricey? They oughta be cheaper day of right? The bucs aren't very g...

I figured 2-3 losses and consider that acceptable. I thought Bama and A&M would be closer games though. Losing 8 starters on D can't be understated in the SEC.
The most disappointing thing about this season was how me...

The proof is in the pudding !
The only decent team we beat this year was auburn!
If we played Auburn today they would beat us!
Their coach is getting 150% out of his players.
Miles needs to go!
Charlie Strong unfortunately will be hired by Florida .

| Tiger Rant|| re: Most impressive thing to you from last night? - JTacoma03 on 9/1/13 at 3:12 pm|
Most impressive to me was how smooth the offense looked, especially given it was the first game of the season, new OC, etc. blah blah blah.
- We converted 3rd and 5+ yards consistently.
- Mett showed poise in pocket and was decisive with the ball
- O-Line gave him time
- WR's made catches they...

Thanks for a logical, rational thread.

These threads always serve to remind us who should never, ever, EVER try their hand at coaching.
