Everybody loves the underdog. LSU hasn't been in that position for quite a while. It brings a different kind of excitement to the game than when you're the favorite and "supposed" to win every game. ...

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.
What's the need? Base...

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.
I'll never understand the logic of the people who pay the money for tickets and take the time to ge...

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.
It's kind ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU-Alabama 2010 - Alt26 on 10/23/14 at 6:39 am|
2010 had a much better defense. I took a while for LSU's offense to get going that game, but the defense kept them in the game until it did. I'm not sure LSU's offense has that same luxury this year...
| 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 ...

[quote]LSU is averaging 35.6 pts/game, 26.8 v. the SEC, and has score 28 points or more and all but one game.
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]

First time I've seen the call in controversy. I think it was a great play design, but poorly executed. The ND guys didn't event try to sell it as a route. They clearly were blocking. You have to make it look like you "unintentionally" ran into the defender. They ran and set up to block....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why LSU Needs to Run on First Down Against Ole Miss - Alt26 on 10/20/14 at 12:48 pm|
Sometimes I wonder if people even pay attention to what's going on in the game, or if their preconceived perception just becomes reality. LSU essentially has no intermediate passing game. It's all virtually deep balls and short passes outside the hashes. That said, other than his first pass to Nei...

I have no reason to believe that UF of Michigan would make any sort of "big" hire. Just last year Texas and USC, with arguably two better jobs, basically had to settle for two underwhelming hires.
The money is good all across the country now, and I just don't think very many good big 5 coaches a...

[quote]Their philosophy is to take away the part of your offensive game that you do well. That forces a team to beat them in ways they aren't built to win. That is the perfect formula for beating an LSU team. That is how Auburn and Mississippi State did it. That is how Ole Piss will try to do it. [/...

No shit! Maybe OM will run a disorganized kickoff to start the game that allows a long return and commit a facemask penalty to boot. Then, they can give up a special teams TD.
