I don't think Les gets enough credit for the winning records during the lean years. We were starting Andrew Hatch and a freshman Jarrett Lee in 2008 and beat Tuberville and Spurrier on the road, and took Saban's unbeaten squad to OT after throwing 1,000 picks against them. Then, in 2009, we had se...

You used to be able to go in the free section of Rivals and get team rankings by position but I'm not seeing it anymore. Did they do away with that or force you to pay for that now?...

If t.u. was in the SEC, their recruiting class would be ranked 10th, just behind Ole Miss and just ahead of Kentucky. If they were in the SEC West, their class would rank 6th.
This is based on 247, which I believe is the best current recruiting service....

I really don't get all the Auburn love. What they did this year was fantastic, but they needed two of the most incredible finishes in Auburn football history in back to back games to get to where they were. They struggled with Wazzou and Miss. State and could have easily lost to Texas A&M and we b...

Isn't the main reason the West itself? I would argue that there are now 4 teams in the West that could win the division in any given year AND two more in OM and MSU that will push for division titles but maybe not every year. If Bielema can right the ship at Arky (pun intended), all 7 West teams w...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Does LSU have the best backfield going into 2014? - Tigerpaul1969 on 1/8/14 at 3:14 pm|
The best part about this is the amount of pressure it takes off of Jennings or whoever gets the starting QB job. What a luxury to be able to hand off to that backfield. It's like Bama's backfield of Lacy, Yeldon, Drake and Fowler last year....

I don't get the "terrible" Ole Miss thing. They lost to Bama, Mizzou, A&M, Auburn and in OT to their rival, Miss. State. Every loss was close except for Bama, and they absolutely should have beaten A&M. They also won their bowl game. LSU should have beaten them, but they are by no means a terrib...

| SEC Rant|| Mississippi State is so close every year - Tigerpaul1969 on 12/20/13 at 2:24 pm|
They seem to have the recipe for doing well in the SEC. A solid running game. Good up front, especially on defense. Typically pretty good secondary.
They were the only team in the SEC in 2011 to fight LSU and Alabama for 4 quarters. This year, the combined record of the teams they lost to was...

Did you happen to look at Ole Miss' losses? Four of their five losses were to Missouri, Auburn, Alabama and Texas A&M, and as you recall, the Auburn game was close and they should have beaten Texas A&M (just like last year). They had one bad loss themselves, to a Miss. St. team whose worst loss wa...
| SEC Rant|| re: Who controls the line of scrimmage in the NCG? - Tigerpaul1969 on 12/20/13 at 10:24 am|
I think we'd know more about FSU's offense if they had played Va Tech this year. That's the only ACC team with an SEC level defense. Putting up 37 against Florida was OK, but they were a shell of the early season defense. I mean, Mizzou put up 36 and Vandy put up 34 in the Swamp. So maybe FSU's ...
| SEC Rant|| re: Who controls the line of scrimmage in the NCG? - Tigerpaul1969 on 12/20/13 at 10:19 am|
That's true. The point is they are an excellent passing team, but they also run the ball well. It will be a hard stop, but the guy mentioning Ellis' strategy against Mizzou had a good point. It will be interesting to see how it plays out....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Throwing out W-L, what is the real expectations for the LSU football team? - Tigerpaul1969 on 12/20/13 at 10:00 am|
I agree that the most realistic expectation is that we compete late in the season every year to get to Atlanta. The main goal in my mind is to win the SEC, and to win it, you have to get to Atlanta.
If you go back and look at it, we've made 3 SEC title games, and have been in the hunt in Novembe...

I love what Auburn did this year. They're scrappy and fun to watch.
However, I worry about this game for them. When you look at the yardage totals for each of the biggest games this year, it's really ugly. For the games against LSU, OM, A&M, UGA, Bama and Mizzou, Auburn gave up an average of 5...

Les went 10-1 his first year before losing to UGA in the SEC title game with his only loss in OT to Tenn after the second hurricane the team had to deal with. Considering the team barely practiced for a month, I'd say he did pretty well that year. He finished 11-2 and in the top 5....
