That brings up a few good questions. Was JJ really THAT bad? Or better yet, was Mettenberger really THAT good? If you compare Jefferson's best season (09) and Mettenberger's best season (13) in games that really mattered (i....

Dale Brown certainly pushed the limits of what was "legal" under the NCAA bylaws. However he did it not because he was a slimeball, but because in an era before their was talk about whether or not college athletes deserved to get paid, he truly believed that the NCAA was an oppressive institution. ...

You must not have been on the Rant prior to the AU game this season. There were many who just KNEW Harris was the key to this offense being explosive; AU wasn't very good based upon their performance against KSU; and LSU was really turning the corner after the ULM game. We all know what happened t...

Not just two TS legends, but two guys who made probably the most memorable plays against OM in LSU history.
To Ole Miss this is a big rivalry game. To LSU, not so much. Maybe this game and this season's circumstances will restart that rivalry on LSU's part....

Absolutely. But I don't think it's so much that AJ can't beat OM with his arm. He delivered with his arm in the 2013 game against Ark. (not just the TD to Dural, but the pass to t...

It would be one thing if it was just the Titans who thought that he couldn't be a successful NFL QB. It's another thing when the entire league is of that opinion. NFL teams are in the business of winning and generally do not pass on guys who they legitimately think betters their chances of doing s...

The NFL seems poised to do everything they can to over-saturate itself. More teams; More games; More playoff participants; Expansion to regions that really couldn't care less about American football. It's as if they are doing their best to fix something that isn't broken.

When you have 80K - 100K people for an event, there is always going to be a number who leave early or don't show for whatever reason: trouble getting to game; unexpected emergency; illness; etc.

It wasn't so much that Mettenberger all of a sudden became a good QB that night, it was that Les was backed into a corner in the first half and realized that he HAD to throw the football to try and win the game. Bama wasn't going to just let LSU line up and run the ball over and over.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Offense is steadily improving. - Alt26 on 10/22/14 at 11:21 am|
I'm going to have to disagree a bit when it come to Jenning's "lack of pocket presence". If you watch the games you'll see that he's not afraid to stay in the pocket, or "climb" the pocket as the outside rushers close in (unlike Harris against AU). His biggest issue is like most inexperienced QBs ...

So, no. It's not that big of a concern. Sure, it's possible in the sense that anything can happen on game day, but it's not keeping me awake at night.[/quote]
