| Tiger Rant|| What is the backstory with Jordan Allen? - TCUFan on 4/15/14 at 12:28 am|
Saw a tweet today that says he visited TCU today and will a few others (Cal, Arizona, etc.) and won't be playing at LSU his final year. Then read a post saying he couldn't get into grad school at LSU? What is the back story here? Did he get passed over at his position at LSU? How good of a playe...

[quote]False. they played in the mac. not one yeam remotely close in talent. Over the ladt 4 cycles, only OU and UT out of the Big 12 have had higher rated classes every year. you guys act as if they have no talent. they are one of the most talented teams in the big 12. [/quote]

[quote]I'm dead serious. We stopped Clowney with an injury riddled OL. We were finally healthy. Surely our tackles impressed you. Call a spade a spade. Your secondary was excellent. Our tackles were __________?[/quote]
My guess is you also had to double team Clowney a good bit to make that happe...

[quote]I don't think fields makes any difference. [/quote]
You cannot be serious. In a game that was more or less decided on 3rd down conversions, Fields would have made a difference if for no other reason that he creates a couple of stops either through sacks or QB hurries. Nobodies OTs are that...

[quote]Likely behind Bama and UF. Anyone I'm overlooking?[/quote]
Hard to determine this based on the evidence.
1. TCU did not have its best defensive player for the game who also happened to offer the one thing they lacked in the game (pass rushing skills). There is no question he would have...

[quote]What's the relevance of this? Not flaming, just curious. Are you saying that may be a reason why LSU fans would outnumber TCU fans?[/quote]
The game is in Arlington which isn't in Dallas. TCU's campus is in Fort Worth which is not in Dallas. The OP said LSU was going to take over Dallas wh...
| Tiger Rant|| re: TCU is scared - TCUFan on 8/11/13 at 8:41 pm|
[quote]So you think they hold LSU to under 150 rushing in this game?[/quote]
Hope so. That will be one of the keys to the game and is a focus of the TCU defense to stop the run first....
| Tiger Rant|| re: TCU is scared - TCUFan on 8/11/13 at 8:41 pm|
[quote]Their defensive line is basically west Monroe boys. Lathan, hunter, and McFarland are the real deal.[/quote]
Those guys should play a lot this year but Hunter was the only starter from last year. Hard to know right now how other players will fit in but Fields and Pierson will have DL starti...

[quote]I was responding to someone that said they'd want Patterson to take over for Miles when he calls it quits.

[quote]It will be 70/30 LSU [/quote]
My understanding is that Jerry World is only allowing 80,000 and TCU sold their allotment of 25,000. So TCU already has sold more than 30%. Now, of course, some TCU folks could sell those tickets to anybody but if past big games are any indication, it is more ...

[quote]Go away. You're an idiot. And TCU can't even sell out their tiny little stadium. [/quote]
Actually, TCU sold out all its home games last year and probably will this year as well. They aren't always in their seats but the tickets were sold out long before the season started. For LSU to do w...

[quote]Considering that LSU is expanding the stadium to 100k+ I think the AD is pretty confident we can sell 100,000 seats. Especially to a big game.[/quote]
That is not the same thing as selling a 100,000 seat allotment. In addition, it is a different animal at Jerry World as I said in the last p...
