Exactly. It's time the SEC move the office to Atlanta and stop hiring Alabama alums. An actual real city with actual real legitimate hiring process based on qualification and not how far you lean towards Bama....

Wisconsin is not a perfect team and we aren't either. What Wisconsin did was show what really needed work. If we play Sam Houston first we blow them out and think we have this incredible team and you don't see the weaknesses. Wisconsin exposed the offensive line in the first half a case can be ma...

Injuries and depth are part of the game. It is one of the reasons the SEC has such an advantage over other conferences. Depth Depth Depth. It's like location, location, location. Look at the 2007 season when Glen Dorsey was chop blocked in the Auburn game. He wasn't the same until the BCS Champ...

Disagree, we are horrible in the middle. When DJ Welter is the starting MLB on an SEC school you have problems at MLB. He was an undersized, not that fast prospect with one other offer from Northwestern. We should be filling that position with a dominating player that does not get dragged all ove...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How many offensive snaps will Sam Houston State have Saturday? - texastigerr on 9/4/14 at 6:48 am|
I think its probably really bad news for SHS that we really pretty much played subpar across the offensive line and not really how the defensive line wanted to play either. Would have been a lot better for them if we had won some kind of blowout game. I don't think we sleep walk through this espec...

This. I really don't believe he is D1 talent. He had one other offer I believe and that was from Northwestern. Compared to other MLB's in this conference it doesn't seem he is at the same level. If Beckwith is capabl...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Do we have any MLB studs coming in this year?? - texastigerr on 9/3/14 at 6:50 am|
And he still can't play the position. He's just a guy who either gets dragged 5 yards everytime he makes a tackle or runs and jumps on top of the pile after someone else makes the tackle....

WR - A
TE - F; Dickson fumble, DeSean drop, seemed like lackluster blocking
OL - D- - didn't do anything until middle of third when they had lost their second starting DT. This Oline is supposed to be the strongest unit on this team and it was the weakest most of the game.
QB - B- (no TO's; see...
| Tiger Rant|| re: I think I was wrong about Anthony Jennings. - texastigerr on 9/2/14 at 6:41 am|
My only disappointment in the game was the offensive line. It should not have taken middle of the third quarter after they lost 2 starting DT's to get going. Factually speaking, their success came against Wisky's second string Dline. Won't work against any other SEC team we play....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Anyone else kind of feel bad for LF - texastigerr on 9/2/14 at 6:38 am|
I got pissed when Sean McDonough felt the need to say "this is highschool anymore" or whatever he said to that effect several times. The yards he did get were on his own straight up the middle. Actually I was kind of impressed with a 5 yard game with no blocking in the first half right up the midd...

Yes, both lines are extremely good. It's rare that each team could possibly be facing the best overall offensive lines they might see all year. Although, I don't know of any bad offensive lines in conference that we will face this year. For us the only exception might be Kentucky who I think is p...

1) [b]I would take any TE involvement[/b] in our offense. How refreshing that would be.
2) I'm sure they are saying the same thing about their Oline vs our Dline. I don't know the size differential their but both team's experience is along the offensive lines.
This is going to come down to...
| Tiger Rant|| re: I don't like the toss lead - texastigerr on 8/26/14 at 7:48 am|
I don't recall seeing any defense really act like they think it's a sweep. Most of the time it just seems like it results in 1 maybe 2 yards and a cloud of dust. Seems like an easy read for the defense and easy stop....
