| Tiger Rant|| re: How will LSU's offense be in 2014 - DrD on 7/20/14 at 7:56 am|
Simple fact of the matter is we should have a great O-line and LSU has major top-level talent at the skill positions - including QB's that can scramble/run and pass. Like Les said in his press conference "I like our chances in every game." Could be a very special year in 2014 - especially on offen...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why Are People Surprised LSU Is Not Getting Praise? - DrD on 7/15/14 at 7:17 pm|
We have mobility at QB and another chance to be one of the best running teams in the country. Defense will be solid under Chavis per usual. We also brought in a top tier recruiting class to address needs for 2014. We get through 1st month of the season unscaved - look out! GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!

None if he coaches like he did the last time he had the opportunity - that was pathetic!
| SEC Rant|| re: Is anyone here besides Ole Miss or Vandy fans still watching the CWS? - DrD on 6/16/14 at 9:42 pm|
Geaux SEC! I will watch a few innings just to catch up on things. The fun is getting to Omaha just like making Final 4 in basketball. Everyones' a winner! Congrats to Vandy and Ole Miss. Vandy came back nicely after LSU blew them out in SEC tournament. Sometimes that's what it takes. I hope V...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Malachi Dupre - DrD on 6/16/14 at 9:36 pm|
If QB can get our receivers the ball LSU will be an exciting football team to watch in all areas: defense, special teams, passing and running. Nothing new.... Geaux Tigers!

| Tiger Rant|| re: How many years will it be until LSU wins a game in Omaha? - DrD on 6/5/14 at 3:47 am|
LSU's team is not suited for championship success in the regionals/CWS. Not enough pitching (depth) and not enough small ball hitters. Gorilla ball is a thing of the past. LSU baseball is living in the past. For example just look at bottom of 9th on Sunday. Middle of the lineup and everyone goe...
| Tiger Rant|| Houston getting lots of ink as NCAA baseball playoffs approach - DrD on 5/29/14 at 7:34 am|
H-town is abuzz about the Cougars college baseball team w a nice writeup about how they are potentially "Omaha bound" in 2014. Their pitching staff has 3rd best ERA in country and they have half-dozen pitchers that are outstanding. Rice is usually the team they write about here in Houston b/c of t...
| Tiger Rant|| nine-game winning streak outscoring opponents numbers - DrD on 5/27/14 at 10:17 am|
Germans but here's the latest:
The Tigers are in the midst of a nine-game winning streak in which they've outscoring opponents 87-5 including 31-4 in the tournament.
Time to refocus for playoffs. Great job Tigers! You earned a top 8 national seed!
:cheers: :nana: :cheers:...
| Tiger Rant|| re: If we lost to Florida do you think we are still the 8 seed? - DrD on 5/27/14 at 7:26 am|
Germans but the ESPN talking heads and the leader of the selection committee speculated that there were others waiting in the wings for the coveted #8 spot - including Vandy and Rice. LSU whipping Vandy and then winning the SEC tourney IMHO was the difference. NO we would not have gotten #8 seed. ...

I remember it well - I was actually coming back late from Arlington to Houston after kids volleyball game. It was the most frustrating and exciting game all in one. 5 hour trip back was enjoyable towards the end. Hawthorne made it sound like Troy was dropping pass after pass and that's why they w...

THIS game was perhaps the best I saw on TV. The LSU vs USCw in late 70's was awesome to listen to on the radio even though it was an "L." Geaux Tigers!

Anyone who says give me the national championship is not "living in the moment" w current LSU football. Maybe for Auburn that's o.k. but not my Tigers.
I prefer being in the hunt for the national championship EVERY year. That's what makes LSU special.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Does the Shutout tonight convince Tiger Fans yet? - DrD on 4/23/14 at 7:20 am|
I agree that pitching and defense are the keys for CWS championships these days. Gorilla ball is out! IF the Tigers can get timely hitting in regionals and CWS they have a shot at another championship. Still suspect on the clutch hitting when it counts. No problem with the pitching and defense. ...

Some of my favorite memories were sitting in our family living room listening to the LSU football games with my father and 2 younger brothers. The colorful radio coverage of the game made you feel like you were there! Condolences to the family. Walter Hill will live in LSU football lore forever! ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: SEC basketball bracket - LSU opprotunity knocking again - DrD on 3/10/14 at 8:46 am|
Did not say "easy" game - just winnable. Kentucky game (if LSU gets there) and wins will be significant. Mighty MO is important! Georgia has beaten LSU twice handily this season. That is enough motivation (IMO) to make this a winnable game for the Tigers. We shall see....
| Tiger Rant|| SEC basketball bracket - LSU opprotunity knocking again - DrD on 3/9/14 at 11:47 am|
LSU has a great opportunity to get to the championship game this season in the SEC tournament. If they can get past Alabama in 2nd round they get Kentucky and then probably Georgia. These are all winnable games. Might be enough to get them to NIT...... I know it's a crap shoot with this bunch bu...

Hard to mess up beer? Thought that was pretty good - and cold.... All day long Baby!
Food could/should have been better. I ate a few plates so can't complain too much but I agree with the overall complaint about food. You drink enough beer it shouldn't matter... Just saying
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: number one class actually. - DrD on 2/7/14 at 10:22 am|
I agree with most everything including the QB situation. Miles should be learning from past Heisman winners that a Freshman can compete and win at the highest level. I would rather have best QB from Spring practices on the field early in the season in preparation for the SEC battles. Problem with...
| Tiger Rant|| re: don't put the blame on the refs, poor defense - DrD on 2/7/14 at 10:15 am|
Worst defensive effort I've seen from a basketball team in quite some time - at any level. Amazing how they played so well defensively the last few games. Having JobIII in foul trouble was a killer. He could not play aggressive the entire night. We'll be all right. Just stay out of foul trouble...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: So who went to the Bash? - DrD on 2/6/14 at 4:24 pm|
Pretty much agree with everything posted by dgtiger3. The food could and should have been better considering the cost per table. Jambalaya and small chicken drumsticks (which were ok)? Plenty of beer and drinks! Corporate sponsors for the most part so if you knew anyone that had a table you pret...
