re: Make the Call: Most Controversial LSU Football loss you witnessed - oiltiger
1970 Notre Dame in South Bend 1979 USC in Tiger Stadium I don't know which one I would put at number 1 because both were absolutely terrible calls. The Chicago paper said after the Notre Dame game that if Notre Dame was number 1, then LSU was 1A. LSU should have tied Notre Dame and beat ...

re: What is the story behind the Spurrier "Non-Hire"? - oiltiger
A friend of Spurrier told me that he is still pissed off about the way he was treated. When he asked why he was taken to the Capital instead of the campus, they replied "Boy, you don't understand Louisiana politics". He has not forgotten....

re: Worst LSU coach in history? - oiltiger
Asw I said in post some time ago, Spurrier was not only not given the coaching position instead of Archer, he was highly insulted and taken to the Capital instead of the LSU campus when he arrived in Baton Rouge, While there and being call a boy that doesn't understand Louisiana politics, Archer was...

re: Worst LSU coach in history? - oiltiger
Shortly after Hallman was hired, we had him at a function to welcome him to LSU. I by chance happened to be standing with him as we went through the buffet. As I was sitting down after listening to him, I said to myself, it is obvious that I don't know anything about football because the smart peopl...

re: 9-1 in 1969 and no bowl - oiltiger
Notre Dame and the Cotton Bowl screwed us and I have never forgotten. It is hard to judge teams from different eras but in my opinion, the 1969 team was the best team LSU ever had....

re: The "Going to Dallas" Multiple Choice question (Cotton Bowl) - oiltiger
In 1969 the Cotton Bowl invited LSU. After the invitation, Notre Dame decided they would change their policy of not playing in bowls and would accept a bowl bid. The Cotton Bowl recinded their invitation to LSU and took Notre Dame. LSU, which had maybe the best team ever, did not go to a bowl be...

Let's stop talking about bowls - oiltiger
We have three more games to play. Let's win them and then see where we are. How many times over the years have we had an outstanding season ruined by losing to Arkansas when we never should have. Often in the last few minutes. Let's concern ourselves with Mississippi State, then Ole Miss, and the...

re: Did Bennie Logan tell Spurrier to STFU? - oiltiger
Spurrier's attitude to LSU is a result of the shabby way he was treated when he came here to be interviewed for the head coaching job. Archer got the job but Spurrier was demeaned by the people who picked him up at the airport. They took him to the capital instead of the campus. He asked why because...

re: Great Article! , maybe Germans - oiltiger
<<It was as if some order was restored. LSU is still LSU, and South Carolina is still South Carolina. At least for one pivotal night. After the game, Spurrier threw his quarterback under the bus, saying, ''I don't know if he got hit in the head tonight or not. Some of his decision-making was a littl...

re: Zach Mettenberger= Ryan Leaf, with a chance to fix - oiltiger
In some ways Mett reminds me of Bert Jones first year. I have always defined it as POISE. Bert looked like a deer in the headlights and was sacked often his first year. Of course we had the two QB philosphy then and maybe he was only trying "to not make a mistake". Look how Bert developed and the...

re: Paul D/Cholly Mac vs. Saban/Miles - oiltiger
/Chollly Mac lost support of the fans because they were not satisfied with winning 9 games and losing to Alabama. His recruiting suffered and the program went down. Both Paul Brown and Don Shula said the Mac was the best coach to do what he did with the poor material he had to work with. I think ...

re: 1962 Orange Bowl vs Colorado - oiltiger
Some thoughts: No free substitution in those days. People played both offense and defense. Our only loss that year was to Rice. Defense was emphasized and LSU often kicked on third down. Field position was important. There was not as much passing as shown in that video. LSU had to hav...

re: Ive been watching Mett pretty close - oiltiger
It seems to me as I watched it closely that he hit Boone on stride on Mett's first touchdown pass this year. I was amazed at the accuracy of that pass. Maybe its time to fire Miles and get our third team quarterback in the game!!!!!!! GET REAL AND APPRECIATE WHAT WE HAVE...

Although a pit came to my stomack and tears came to my eyes when I read Dandydon this morning, I was a least cheerred up when I read all 260 previous posts and they were all positive. It has really disturbed me to read all of the negative posts about Mr.Long on this board over the years. He was a tr...

re: Notes from Miles on the team. - oiltiger
I listened to Coach Miles last night and am in agreement with the reports of the thread. Coach seems as relaxed as I have ever seen him, telling stories about family, etc. He really didn't say much about football that we already didn't know. The only thing discussed that was not wishy-washy was ...

re: Looking to clairfy some "myths" about LSU Football - oiltiger
After enduring the rain, wind and a 44 to 3 beating, what realy PO'ed many of us was Ruffin Rodique saying that "the score didn't indicate how close the game really was". I am still mad about that comment. Steve Spurrier was in Baton Rouge for the interview when the players "struck" for Archer. S...
