re: Roy King Fired - TigerCard
[quote]Roy not only controlled the stipend money that every member of Tiger Band received, he also controlled the full scholarships that the Band used to recruit top high school musicians who were interested in playing in Tiger Band. These scholarships also include requirements for those musicians t...

re: Roy King Fired - TigerCard
[quote]Be very careful about Roy King's attorney's comments. What she says doesn't make sense. Looks to me like the administration handled this one fairly well - for a change.[/quote] Stay tuned...I think you'll be changing your mind on this as the facts come out....

[quote]And maybe now they will consider playing actual lsu tradional band songs instead of coming up with new bullshite[/quote] And, of course, other people complain that they don't play enough new music. There is no way to win. Students are not the only people in the audience, and some of the o...

re: Roy King Fired - TigerCard
[quote]The band degraded massively with him at the helm. The quality of band from, say, 2011, put this year's band to shame. That's pretty much true of almost any band from the 2000's as well. The last couple of years have been horrible in comparison to what it used to be. [/quote] The scholarshi...

re: Petition to support Roy King - TigerCard
[quote]Roy may administer the band budget, but the budget is under the athletic department and thus not at the discretion of any one individual, be it Roy or anyone else.[/quote] Yes, Roy administers the budget for the Athletic Bands as directed by the athletic department. That means he is trust...

re: Petition to support Roy King - TigerCard
[quote]Once the facts come out we will know more. If funding related, that's on him and he has to do what his superiors tell him. [/quote] Well, the scholarship money in question is to be used specifically (and only) for Tiger Band students and is provided for that purpose by the Athletic Depart...

re: ESPN on our chances to win NC next season - TigerCard
[quote]I think it was about what it appeared to be. We had some pretty good passing games, but during the meat of our schedule for the last five games, we had 4 TDs and 6 INTS. Against aTm in the home finale, we had 83 passing yards and were just barely hanging on 13-6 until Fournette scored with ju...

ESPN on our chances to win NC next season - TigerCard
Interesting to see what they say about our passing game last year. [quote]The Tigers' passing game was their biggest weakness last season, yet in reality, it was a lot better than generally thought.[/quote] [link=(http://espn.go.com/college-football/insider/story/_/id/14934942/lsu-loaded-win-c...

re: LSU Navy Helmet Concept - TigerCard
My problem with every variation of this helmet is that the dark band across the lower back makes it look like those California Highway Patrol motorcycle helmets the guys used to wear on the old TV show CHiPs. So when I see it, my first thought is always "bad 70s TV." [link=(https://en.wikipedia....

re: LSU's natural recruiting advantage - TigerCard
I don't think anyone would argue that we can fulfill all our needs with Louisiana players. Of course we need to go OOS for great players or to fill in holes in our depth chart. (Even there, however, we have a geographical advantage, with Texas right next door and with talent-rich states like Georg...

re: How good is Etling? - TigerCard
[quote]I'm not trying to be a dick, but he had to transfer from Purdue because he couldn't win the job.[/quote] Well, for the sake of argument, Jake Coker couldn't win the job at FSU, and he turned out OK. Sometimes it just takes a different environment. And sometimes it just takes some QBs lon...

re: Miles on Cam coming down to the field - TigerCard

[quote]Give the guy a break......he is making one of the most important decisions of his life on where to play ball for the next 4 years. Im sure he just wants to make sure he chooses the best school for him.[/quote] I agree. And I'm not surprised he's upset about Eason visting UF. And it doesn...

re: Pete Fiutak is smoking crack!!! - TigerCard
[quote]I wouldn't put any stock into what that guy says anymore. There was a time when i thought he was the only guy that "Gets it" and I still like the way they do their poll but he has gotten to the point where he seems to favor being controversial over being logical and that makes him end up look...

re: The Official Bradley Dale Peveto Special Teams Thread - TigerCard
[quote]He won't be fired. Not Les' style. Plus, who we realistically getting at this point? He won't be here next year though.[/quote] I would agree with this. Les will never embarrass one of his coaches in public, nor will he ever openly fire a coach. If Les wants Peveto gone (and this migh...

re: Stadium atmosphere - TigerCard
I would generally agree. I wasn't in town for the '14 Ole Miss game, so can't compare that. The two craziest games I've attended were '79 USC and '12 Bama. Last night was great, but perhaps a slight bit less intense than those two....

Great article on Fournette by Ivan Maisel - TigerCard
Maisel compares Founette to LeBron, Bryce Harper, and others because of his desire to not just be better than everyone else, but to be the best he can be. [link=(http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/13817380/lsu-leonard-fournette-lebron-best-kind-different)]LINK[/link] Sorry if this ...

re: ESPN already doing their part to make LSU's canceled game an issue - TigerCard
Who cares?! If we take care of business, we'll be on top. If we don't, well...we won't. Bottom line: It...does...not....matter where we are in the polls right now. (If we were ranked 18th with a so-so schedule, yeah, it might matter, but with our schedule, if we win, we won't have to worry about...
