| Tiger Rant|| re: Wonder if ncaa considered going all wood bats like minors and big league? - LagdonCG on 4/16/14 at 3:16 pm|
MLB has offered to pay for the wooden bats but for some reason the NCAA has refused the offer. I remember distinctly Skip Bertman telling me this.
The game today is unwatchable. Go to MLB balls and wooden bats ASAP!...

Visited with him on pro day and must have been impressed because they said earlier he was not on their radar and would not bring him to Nashville.
Wizenhunt is new HC and he had similar QB in Kurt Warner.
Great landing spot for Zach.......

The hell of it is that Cohen was right...the ump kicked the call.
Cohen wanted to get tossed because his team was not playing well.
Guess that did not work either.
This usually happens with a culmination of bad calls and Cohen exploded.
It would not surprise me if the SEC did not suspend...

| Tiger Rant|| Basketball Team Conditioning - LagdonCG on 4/2/14 at 11:24 am|
It is mind boggling that any player on any team at LSU would need to go to the next professional level to work on his conditioning. Such was the moment yesterday from Johnny O'Brien.
In watching him play, it was obvious to me after the second game I saw on TV that he was gassed...even in the fir...

| Tiger Rant|| re: JOB?? - LagdonCG on 3/25/14 at 9:59 am|
He needs to move along. He is not a great player and is taking up a slot for someone else.
No jump shot, terrible D, and below average rebounder. Worst wheels I have ever seen on a big man.
Plays D on his heels with the legs apart....no way to recover....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Simple Question.How good would LSU be if Larry Brown coached us the last 2 years - LagdonCG on 3/25/14 at 8:23 am|
I make no comment about the level of our talent.
My concern is the way they played, defense, rebounding and smarts on court with is a reflection of negativity on Johnny Jones.
He gave up on the is team before the SEC slate began and that is unforgivable.
If he does not get off his arse for n...

Pathetic and disappointed....

It is solo hard to watch this LSU team that is so poorly disciplined and coached. LSU has the players to match up with anyone but our offense is ridiculous and we play terrible defense.
What we play is a posse version of street ball.
Just felt myself wanting to fast forward to the last four m...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Cam Cameron upset with offense (Video) - LagdonCG on 3/19/14 at 6:18 am|
I just hope LSU has the "chest" to play a freshman as he is far and away the better of the three.
If we have to suck this year, then play him anyway and build.
What we saw is lack of talent ...period....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Some LSU Basketball perspective for our program's direction - LagdonCG on 3/18/14 at 8:36 pm|
Honestly...I want to win...big time...but more important...the lack of focus and hustle, smart press defense and horrid rebounding upsets me more. That is pure effort and should be demanded by the coach not begged for. And when you don't get it, you put someone else in....

Jones in way over his head.
Unfortunately, he will be at LSU until he resigns....

The old adage goes that good pitching will always stop good hitting.

Offensively, I think it is time to worry. First series of the yea...

LSU does not deserve to play. The money could be better spent on recruiting.
This will also cost the team a week of being out of class.
Ready to move on to next year.

Here are the facts:
1.The bad weather is missing Nashville Sunday. We have had a whopping .18 of rain, nothing more than a heavy dew/mist. No lightning or fog. No wind. All I ever heard on the forecasts was a rainy day but no severe weather was ever forecast. No hazardous travel warnings.

It was hard to tell anything about LSU in the Vandy series. Vandy has a great team and plays very smart. The third baseman had a rough series but overall they outplayed LSU in every phase and should have swept the series.
Bregman looked awful all weekend. Very impatient and tried to pull every...

He cannot help us get to the next level. He has Dale Brownitis....does not get better at LSU......

F Major disappointment. You cannot coach shooting but the defense was horrible and rebounding pitiful....this is coaching.
I am beginning to think we made a mistake.
But since Brown and Shaq are behind him, he has at least another two years or longer.
Personally, I have seen enough and wish...

If you sit in outfield, no concessions or restrooms.
