The amoeba (otherwise known as Naegleria fowleri) prefers to inhabit warm bodies of water. While in water they are typically in a flagellate stage meaning they have the means to be mobile.
From what I remember from my Parasitology class, to stand a chance of infection - contaminated water basical...

Personally, I consider a 10+ win season a fairly good season in the sense I can say I enjoyed our team for the majority of it.
But I think with where our program has been this past decade, it is a let down when we don't win or play for the National Championship. It's a solid chance for us to make...

The "mistakes" of Miles are only mistakes because they didn't work. The only play I am critical of the coaching staff is in the final 2-3 minutes.

I was saying throw for it during the game. No way you take off nearly enough time off the clock to think your defense can comfortably just slow them down.
Game winning drive while your QB and WRs are hot and playing well, let them win it....

| SEC Rant|| re: The best part about last night - TigerSauce on 11/4/12 at 7:37 am|
Was a good game all around. LSU played extremely well especially in the 2nd half. I don't think the coaches out coached anybody. You could argue Saban was stumped in the 2nd half on how to stop the tigers but it's hard to adjust to an offense that showed nothing all year and suddenly became a differ...

Really, I don't think we're able to speculate.

Bama shows up strong but hasn't shown what they can do against a competitive top ranked team. Miss State was top ranked but the schedule ...

While most AA already voted dem, Obama's status as a black man probably drew out even more black voters that wouldn't normally vote. Not a stretch to say he probabl...

I wouldn't say we beat them handily. If it ends up 2 score difference, the second unanswered score would be very late off of a mistake or a tired out defense.
As well oiled of a machine Bama is now, I have to agree that their schedule leading up to playing us isn't very strong or helpful to them....

I think Mett played very average against USCe. He may seem inept or uncommitted to many, but maybe that's just how he looks?
The team seems to have a different opinion of his demeanor. Everything he says post-game about offensive struggles, he's owned up to it and shouldered the blame. He's state...

The game was won and well in hand with the physical ability of the line and our RBs. It was the right decision to center around the run with the TOP battle largely in our pocket.
The only reason that game came within 2 points is due to:
1. The interception
2. Special teams play

Consistent execution imo.
With that comes discipline and focus.

| Tiger Rant|| re: What is wrong with the offense??? - TigerSauce on 10/9/12 at 3:25 pm|
The offense's scheme is not ideal and the play calling is not that great either. I agree in the SEC you have to have the ability to adjust your gameplan otherwise you end up too predictable, it allows the defense to get confident and comfortable. If you never take advantage of that, you're going to ...

Agreed. Dropped passes and losing big plays to a turnover is much more detrimental than the 1 pick that was thrown (Why didn't OBJ jump like he always does?) Not good when the defender plays for the ball and the receiver lets it sail.

Depends on how hungry USCe is, if they're truly a national championship team, they will battle through the adversity and come off with a win.
It's an uphill battle for them though, I think our players will bounce back after this loss but honestly, there's nothing in the offense's personality that...
