Agreed. I had 'em to cover, but would have thrown smaller on the ML if I had it available to me. I like LSU + anything against Vandy, but not as much as the UF Game since I think LSU has trouble getting up for games that they don't perceive as important....

[quote]It was +525...[/quote]
Gross. I guess they knew something was up with where I play since they didn't post it. I texted my buddies suggesting they look at that game considering LSU can play with just about anyone when they're motivated to do so. Couple that with a down UF team with a few ho...

[quote]I dunno, why not try it out next game? Just see what happens.[/quote]
I think you run the risk of shattering Gray's confidence if you do this whereas what they're doing now is working. TQ continues to get meaningful minutes. I think the risk outweighs the reward. I'm totally onboard with y...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Josh Gray could easily be 3rd string PG - JR Hamilsbach on 1/21/15 at 1:07 pm|
I think Gray should continue to start. Jones has proven that he'll pull Gray if he makes mistakes. If Gray plays well, the team benefits from his ability to get in the lane and pass or score from there. The team is also deeper overall featuring him in the rotation early. If you sit him out the gate,...

[quote]LSU newcomer, safety Jeremy Cutrer, lines up on the left hash mark 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage. It is 3rd and 5 as MSU's senior signal caller, Dak Prescott, stands in the shotgun. Cutrer notices All-SEC wideout, DeRunnya Wilson in the slot and instantly recognizes the play.

[quote]Really TQ and (most of the time) Hornsby are LSU's best on ball defenders. While Hornsby's offense was outstanding last night, his defense on Moody was even better and THE KEY to winning that game. [/quote]
I agree with your assessment of TQ. Patterson is a better defender than Hornsby...

[quote]I think that's a testament to how bad our bench is.
This is the best bench we've had in years. TQ And Patterson are legitimate subs who are as good as the starters. We haven't been able to sub at all in recent years without taking a hit to the quality of the team we put ...

this is pathetic if it's true. Is LSU a dominant college program or a peewee football team?

Best surprise so far this season imo. I think the team plays best when he's on the court and he acts as a great facilitator helping get others involved. He also plays great defense and ap...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Jarrell Martin is soft right now..... - JR Hamilsbach on 1/11/15 at 11:26 am|
Martin looks terrible as the point man in our full court press. It looks like a combo of being too slow or fatigued combined with poor spacing and effort. Bridgewater cut angles better and actually looked to be busting his ass, which is needed in that role. If we stick with the press, I think Martin...
