Obviously, we stepped up our attention to Jamal Adams when it looked like things were going south with Hootie. We'd love to have you, Jamal. Have you seen all of the DBs starting in the NFL from LSU? Way more than Alabama....

| Tiger Rant|| re: We've only played at Bryant-Denny 15 times - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/30/13 at 11:06 pm|
I was mostly intrigued by the fact that we've played so few times in BDS given the long history of this series. It is also interesting that we have a winning record there given how Bama has historically dominated this series, but when you realize that we didn't start playing there regularly until 1...

Let's just say that he has certain "otherworldly" connections that only Ron Howard knows about (and maybe Hume Cronyn). Also, he's going to need a good supply of body bags....
| Tiger Rant|| We've only played at Bryant-Denny 15 times - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/30/13 at 3:53 pm|
Our overall record there is 9-6.
BDS opened in 1929, and we only played there three times between then and 1988, when the series shifted from its then-home at Legion Field in Birmingham.
Since that 1988 game at BDS, we are 8-4 there. The four losses were in 90, 95, 99 and 09, and what's inter...
| Tiger Rant|| Basketball depth - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/25/13 at 10:14 am|
When was the last time we had this kind of depth on our basketball team?
I seriously think you have to go back to the Dale Brown era to find it. Brady's teams were hampered early with scholarship restrictions, and we had some great front line talent on some of his teams, but we never had guys wh...

This demonstrates that Auburn would have been a much more natural fit in the East with their permanent opponent being Bama, and the only reason they ended up in the West was so Bama could keep that game and the Tennessee game....

| Tiger Rant|| re: why are teams still loading the box? - Tigerpaul1969 on 10/6/13 at 9:51 am|
For the last two games, the opposing defenses have had good game plans against us and have executed well. Look at last night...MSU had three sacks and were getting good pressure on many of our pass plays. The difference this year has been outstanding execution by Zach, OBJ and Jarvis. Zach is put...

I'm not trying to get rid of him. I'm just saying I could see that as a lure to him. What does he have left to prove at Bama? That he can win titles there? You know he likes a challenge....

I think this would be the biggest lure to go to Texas. Let's face it, with their resources and state talent and playing in a fairly weak Big 12, he could easily win a title and possibly multiple titles there. His legacy, which is already as one of the greats of all time, would go through the roof ...

With that name, he's got to go to LSU. I'm from LaPlace and before East St. John was built in 1980, the high school was named Leon Godchaux High School, after the sugar magnate of the same name who employed so many people in the River Parishes for so long....

I'm partial to AJ Duhe because he knew my family and was from Reserve. He was 1977 Defensive Rookie of the Year and had three interceptions (including one for a touchdown) against the Jets in the 1982-83 AFC championship game. David Woodley was the QB on that team, by the way.
I think Steve van...

I said it. Or something to the effect that Blue would be every bit as effective as Hill. He absolutely has NOT been, but I think he has been tentative after his injury. I hope he can come back better because I think he has great talent. Hill has been a beast. He looks better than last year. Of...

Think of it this way, Ole Miss fan. A win over Texas this weekend would not be as impressive as our win over TCU given how BYU DESTROYED Texas. Also, if you don't gain at least 500 yards on Texas, you are not as good as BYU....

A&M - 42-20
Has anyone else noticed that every pundit says the same thing about how bad Bama's O-line looked in the first game? It goes something like this: "Yes, Bama's offensive line was manhandled by Virginia Tech, but Virginia Tech has a great defense and Bama will get it fixed." For the r...

Can you name a player from LA we lost to Alabama that made a significant contribution or that we sorely missed? I don't count Eddie Lacy because we never really went after him since we were already loaded at RB AND we didn't think he would qualify. He magically did though....
