| Tiger Rant|| re: Gausman sent to AAA Norfolk - TigerCard on 6/21/14 at 12:20 pm|
Looks like the O's got caught in a roster bind. He'll be back soon. I was actually having lunch in a tavern in Toronto this past Wednesday and saw Gausman work his way out of a bases loaded, no outs jam at Tampa Bay. Only got to watch about three innings, but he looked good, and I saw later that ...

According to ESPN... Zack Lee was ranked #75, for what it's worth. Here's the scoop on Gausman:
It wasn't the ideal year for Gausman in 2013. He probably should have been left in the minors for a few more months before he was given so much as a spot start in the majors, where he struggled over ...

Thanks! It's snowing right now, as a matter of fact, but warmer than it's been. I just remember reading something on the board about how Cam was still talking up LSU after his verbal so I wondered if we were still trying to flip him, especially with a new O-line coach. Thanks for the responses!...

I don't recall seeing anything about this, and I'm just curious. (I apologize if it has been discussed already.) I seem to recall some chatter a while back that Robinson was still somewhat attracted to LSU, even after his verbal to Bama. IF that was the case, and IF he wasn't an EE, does anyone t...

A lot of Brown's fans think Chud got a raw deal. Everyone was disappointed in the season, but there's a strong sense that he deserved at least one more year....
| Coaching Changes|| re: Greg Sciano to Cleveland? (A dumpster fire of epic proportions) - TigerCard on 1/21/14 at 4:03 pm|
I haven't heard anything about this from the local media. Browns seem to be interested in Denver OC, Seattle DC, perhaps the Bills' DC (word is they were really impressed with his first interview and he is supposed to come back for a second), and possibly Josh McDaniels (Patriots OC).

| Tiger Rant|| re: Keeping my word... - TigerCard on 1/6/14 at 3:18 pm|
Pretty good assessment....I think both QBs left some points on the field, but at least some of that was due to the quality of the defensive play. I honestly think if Mett had been in the game we would have scored at least one more TD, maybe two. Having said that, I think the game turned out pretty...

Thanks for taking the time to offer your take on the matchup. I think it should be a good game. Personally, I think the Tigers will be more motivated than most Tiger fans seem to be, especially after last year's loss. But we'll see....

This sounds reasonable. I don't think Texas will pull the trigger on Mack unless it is close to 100% confident that they have the position filled already. They are not going to fire a successful coach and then start looking around. If they don't have assurances that the coach they have identified...
| Coaching Changes|| re: Would Saban or any respectable coach jump into this dumpster fire? - TigerCard on 12/13/13 at 3:33 pm|
I don't know why you would characterize the situation like this. I doubt there will be a "search," unless it's just to keep up appearances. I suspect that Texas will not fire Mack unless it knows exactly who it wants and has the deal pretty much locked up. They are not going to cut Mack loose and...

Auburn deserves to be there. They earned it on the field. Yes, they got some breaks along the way, but that's always part of the equation.
I've always rooted for the SEC team in the championship (yes, even Bama), simply because I wanted to keep the championship "in the family." If FSU won th...
