| Tiger Rant|| re: Tiger Stadium - those Ole Miss and Bama games were such fun atmospheres - Captain Want on 12/21/14 at 8:03 pm|
The Ole Miss game from this year may get lost in discussions about classics at Tiger Stadium, but -- what a great atmosphere, and what a great game that was. Loud. An energy around campus that you could just feel all day leading up to the game. That same feeling in the stadium. The classic ending. E...

Glad you're posting, top100. A couple of questions/comments -- perhaps you can offer some insight:
(1) How can LSU get out of playing at aTm on Thanksgiving night? It was for our family a distraction from the holiday and in some respects an afterthought. I hope it never becomes a tradition at Tig...

[quote]Michigan announced today that it has retained Korn/Ferry, an executive search firm, to assist in its search for a new football coach.
Jed Hughes, a former Michigan football coach, is the head of Korn/Ferry's global sports practice. While at Spencer Stuart, Hughes helped in Michigan's hir...

This mgoblog site is a pretty good place to get information on the search. Here's what the guy says today:

I think he is related to one of the Lawtons. It will take a lot for him to be gone, if that's right.
McNeese as a whole has taken a step back in the last several years, between the quality of play and the caliber of the conference. They play a school now called Incarnate Word? How the hell is tha...

Unbelievable that the city's main newspaper would put that out there. It's a huge slap in the face to Miles and to LSU.
Having said that, Les has been underappreciated. There are plenty of idiots who think every coach in America except Bill Belichick will drop everything and come to the football...
| Tiger Rant|| Grateful to have Les as our coach - Captain Want on 12/3/14 at 9:46 am|
Go ahead and call me a "sunshine pumper", ranters, but I am proud to have a coach:
- who has the best record in the SEC, and perhaps the most wins nationally, over his ten-year tenure
- consistently has LSU in the running for the SEC and national title (more often than not)
- has a fun and ani...

Les is going to be the Michigan head football coach next year. I believe it.

...one of which is ranked #1 now, another ranked #5, and another ranked #9. In a year where the SEC West is the toughest division in the nation, and in a year where everyone acknowledged LSU was rebuilding, replacing virtually every skill position on offense.
Yet the sky is falling, Miles sucks a...

Not that year. JL had a long streak of no INTs and I believe he was among the leaders of QB efficiency that year.
Checking the stats, he ...

"Harris' stats were off the charts" against second team defenses or subpar competition late in the game. He got a look at a first team SEC defense in Auburn and looked downright awful. Just sayin....
