[quote]Yes. Occasionally during pregame they will show a video where they go "full screen " and it's like night and day. You suddenly realize just how much of the screen is being used like a static billboard rather than a video screen. It's actually plenty large enough and looks great.[/quote]
| Tiger Rant|| re: Are there enough scores on the adboard in TS? - PacWilly on 4/8/14 at 10:23 am|
Real question: Without making physical upgrades, can the portion of the board that includes the coke, verizon, capital one and mcdonald's ads display live video feed? OR is it static?

Sure, as long as you also bring along a flatbed and forklift. Those shipping containers are pretty heavy. Definitely not convenient. Better off to build this on the back of a sturdy 16-foot trailer....

First, I didn't dream it; I saw it several times on practice videos. I can only dream of the times he took over OL drills that I was not able to wi...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Opinion - RB carries this year...Percentages - PacWilly on 2/26/14 at 12:04 pm|
LSU will rush the ball 40 times a game next year and pass about 25.
Day 1 will look something like this...Magee (15), Hilliard (10), Fournette (10), Team (5)
By season's end, it will look like this...Magee (15), Fournette (15), Hilliard (5), Team (5)
If Fournette is the next coming of He...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Ultimate Jeremy Hill Highlights - PacWilly on 2/19/14 at 8:11 am|
Hill will be missed. I expect a drop off at RB. Magee and a young Fournette will be good, but Hill was power and a home run threat every time he got the ball. It will take Fournette some time to get to beast mode.
I'm hoping improved OL play will offset the temporary drop in RB play so that ove...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Ncaa proposed rule change for no huddle - PacWilly on 2/13/14 at 12:16 pm|
I don't have a problem with this. The primary point of the rule is defensive substitutions - not the time and total plays. Because of the increase number of plays (generally), the defense should be able to substitute if they want to regardless of what the offense does. Nowadays, the offense can ho...

I'm sorry, but I took this article as showing RP as the opposite of him being humbled and instead blaming his circumstances for his own lack of self-control.

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: UCLA has a LOT of guys outstanding - PacWilly on 2/3/14 at 1:20 pm|
I would never second guess a recruits decision to attend UCLA or any other school if his reasons are "the football program" in general, academics, location, etc. However, I think it is foolish for a recruit to choose a school solely because of a coach (e.g., Jim Mora Jr.).
In the end, that recr...
| Tiger Rant|| re: What do you call somebody that has not watched an LSU - PacWilly on 1/26/14 at 12:32 pm|
That's a bandwagoner. I consider myself a bandwagoner and I watch more than you.
I watch LSU basketball when there is good basketball to watch (if it's on tv, I will tune in). I did not watch much during Trent's years. I will keep track of box scores during these years but I will not alter my ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Jimmy Graham "not too keen" on being franchise tagged - PacWilly on 1/26/14 at 9:17 am|
Agree with OP. It's business. And the guy disappears in big games. In fact, the coaches call for formations that do not include him many times in big games. He's not irreplaceable. In reality, Saints would be better with a true #1 WR. We Need speed.
Tag him and take your chances next yr. ...

IMO This would not factor into his decision. Hill would have received 20 carries/game regardless. The only way he would not is if he didn't prepare his body in the offseason. Hill would have been the featu...

I'll go with this. I'm not sure it's the best, but I think this is a good comparison. McAllister had that second gear in college like Hill has. Hill is a little thicker, but overall pretty good comparison....

| Tiger Rant|| re: Kevin Mawae to interview for OL job - PacWilly on 1/9/14 at 5:00 pm|
I am not confident in my abilities to evaluate coaching talent; however, read up on Mawae's resume and it's hard not to get excited about the possibilities.
LSU - played Tackle, Guard, and Center
NFL - played Guard and Center
8 time pro-bowler
president of NFLPA - that's respect right there
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why do you think studrawa left? - PacWilly on 1/9/14 at 4:14 pm|
If you watch clips of practice, over half the time Stud is not even coaching the OL...Miles was hands on coaching them. I always found it odd that Miles was so hands on with the OL but now it makes sense. I think Miles knew the job wasn't getting done by Stud, stepped in, and then finally got tire...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Ranking the 16 BCS National Champions - PacWilly on 1/8/14 at 12:34 pm|
Trying to be objective here...It's hard to argue too much with where LSU is on that list. the 2003 team might be moved up a couple spots into the top 10 based on that defense alone, but our offense was nothing to write home about. We won with Matt Mauck at QB, a pure game manager at best. We lost...

Mark Emmert had the vision to hire the best coach that wanted to rebuild LSU and money was no object.
