| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Did espn mention our class? - cphill on 2/5/14 at 8:49 pm|
To heck with ESPN.....their "experts" don't know any more than any average sports fan does. All the "elite" schools' classes look good on every Signing Day. In a couple of years - or less - we'll find out the truth. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: If Malachi Dupre commits, will he start next year? - cphill on 2/5/14 at 1:26 pm|
[quote]It never ceases to amaze me the people who every recruiting year think the new freshman will come in and play early, often, or start. It takes a spectacularly talented player in the right situation to play early. WR is typically not one of them. The complexities of route running and more imp...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU beat Auburn to a pulp this past season. - cphill on 1/8/14 at 7:38 pm|
Things change throughout the season. For instance, I think LSU would have beaten Georgia had that game been played in November. But Auburn might have beaten LSU had THAT game been played in November. Some teams improve, some regress. Sometimes, it's not WHO you play that matters, it's WHEN you play ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU will finish higher than Bama - cphill on 1/3/14 at 1:17 pm|
No they won't. LSU has one more loss, plus they lost to Bama. No case to be made for LSU finishing higher....
| Tiger Rant|| re: LF: most talented back LSU has had since Faulk? - cphill on 1/3/14 at 1:14 pm|
Let's let him play a few downs, first. I'll admit that he looked All-World in H.S., but "most talented" is yet to be seen....
| Tiger Rant|| re: What has to happen for LSU to finish in top 10? - cphill on 1/2/14 at 3:28 pm|
Probably no chance for a Top 10 finish.....but they did better than I predicted they would...I thought 8-5 / 9-4 might be the upper limit for a team that lost so much to the NFL....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Rank how big today is for LSU football - cphill on 1/2/14 at 3:21 pm|
Let's see which of the potential recruits actually sign....that will tell you if it was a "Big Day" or not....

[quote]When will the Tigers get that elite guy that sticks with this program and become known As the best to ever play in BR? [/quote]
Who knows?? I'd settle for a "good" QB along with a great defense....
| More Sports Board|| re: Do you guys think FSU is glad they won't have to play BAMA? - cphill on 12/1/13 at 2:53 pm|
I think FSU would roll over OSU. Auburn and Alabama (and maybe, Mizzou)are clearly than the Buckeyes. But, just like last year, they'll get a lot of votes from the East and Midwest. But I'm not putting the cart before the horse - MSU might shut the Buckeyes down. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Would you rather Auburn or LSU win? - cphill on 11/26/13 at 3:44 pm|
I'm never rooting for LSU to lose. I don't care about Auburn OR Bama. What kind of fans do we have on this board???...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How important is next year's Alabama game for Miles? - cphill on 11/26/13 at 3:41 pm|
Before you run Les off, consider this: He's lost ONE home game in the last three years, and if they beat Arky, they will will have won nine games with more than half of their defense from last year bolting for the NFL.
Yeah, maybe he's not Saban, but nobody else is, either. Yep....we could get ri...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How important is next year's Alabama game for Miles? - cphill on 11/26/13 at 3:33 pm|
We don't know a thing about how either team will be next year. Way too early for all that....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Anyone here worried about Arkansas? - cphill on 11/25/13 at 3:21 pm|
The only way we lose that game is by overconfidence. The Hogs are dogs....
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU Ranked #15 in both polls - cphill on 11/25/13 at 3:17 pm|
Seems about right. We might not be a Top Ten team, but we're definitely better than a Twenty-Something team....

[quote]LSU will defeat the Aggies in Tiger Stadium[/quote]
Maybe....maybe not....Their defense isn't good....ours isn't anything to crow about, either. The team that makes the fewest mistakes probably prevails....
| Tiger Rant|| re: We are going to find out a lot about Les Miles next Saturday vs A&M - cphill on 11/18/13 at 1:13 pm|
I don't think we're going to find out anything more about Les than we already know....win or lose. He's not Saban, but he's not the worst major college coach, either. Yep...we're 7-3...but we're not 3-7. Besides....anyone see Miles going someplace else in the foreseeable future?? Not me. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: What would our record be? - cphill on 11/18/13 at 1:02 pm|
Who knows?? We didn't go undefeated when they were here, did we?? Any hypothetical can be made into a positive....but it's still just a hypothetical....

[quote]Tigers will win ........[/quote]
Mmmmm.....They could win.....but can they stop Manziel?? That's debatable. Neither defense is great, and it might come down to the team that has the ball last. I have no feel for this game, at all....
| Tiger Rant|| re: A missing Ingredient for beating Bama - cphill on 11/12/13 at 12:33 pm|
Recruiting, player development and attention to detail.....Bama is the best in the country at those things......That's why we're falling behind them....
| Tiger Rant|| re: How do you see the rest of the season playing out? - cphill on 11/10/13 at 6:45 pm|
A&M - Loss
Arky - Win
Bowl Game - Who knows?? If it's against a team that has any offense, I always think that LSU might be in trouble, at this point....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Do you still think we best A&M? - cphill on 11/10/13 at 10:18 am|
"Curb stomp" them?? Yeah, right. Manziel is going to light us up like a pinball machine. I'm not saying LSU can't win, but our defense doesn't look like it could curb stomp a 7th grade varsity team....
| Tiger Rant|| re: The lack of belief on the rant is unprecedented - cphill on 11/5/13 at 12:09 am|
We can score points. But can our defense hold Bama in check?? I haven't seen any evidence of that. LSU is going to have to play a near perfect game to beat the Tide. That's probably too much to hope for....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Is Bama the most unproven #1 team LSU has ever played? - cphill on 11/3/13 at 10:03 am|
They look to be as good as ever, to me.
Until someone beats them, it's all talk....

[quote]FSU - how did it turn out these guys would be here and we wouldn't? [/quote]
Outside of Bama, they may be the best team in the country. They totally demolished Clemson - on the road. The Ducks may have a slightly better offense, but FSU's defense is far soperior, IMHO. LSU at 13?? Seems ab...

Mmmmmmm...judging from last night, I'd say the fans are better prepared for the games than the players a lot of the time. I'm not "bitching," just disappointed that our team played so poorly...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Difference between LSU and Bama? - cphill on 10/20/13 at 12:10 am|
Bama is prepared to play EVERY week. We're prepared to play about 80% of the time. The other problem?? Sabin doesn't accept sloppy play.....Les let's too much go....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Per Danny Sheridan, LSU would open as a 10-point underdog to Bama today - cphill on 10/16/13 at 5:06 am|
So what?? A betting line is just that....a betting line. Except for that BCS debacle two years ago, the Tigers usually play 'Bama close, either way. The Tide are good, but they're not "unbeatable." Maybe 'Bama wins by 10, maybe not....
| Tiger Rant|| re: No one should have been surprised by our defense yesterday - cphill on 9/29/13 at 10:43 am|
We're going to have a hard time beating Bama and the Aggies with this defense. Your offense can't always bail you out. Heck, even Arky might be a struggle for us....
