Sammy Martin was fast, but man was he skinny. How did he not get cracked in half? Between he and Harvey Williams, that was one heckuva speedy backfield. Speaking of Harvey, he grew up near College Station and chose LSU in a made for TV moment on signing day. The Aggie fans have hated their homebo...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Tournament pitching strategy - Iam4LSUnTN on 5/19/13 at 3:29 pm|
Don't understand this "who cares" attitude about the SEC Tournament championship. Vandy wine the regular season championship. I for one would love nothing more that see an LSU-Vandy showdown in the championship game with Nola on the mound as his second game in the tourney. Could be a primer for the ...

1982 Bama game at Birmingham Legend Field. 0 first downs in the first half. And Bama had a top 5 team going into that game. Bear Bryant's most humiliating loss in his career. ...

Ok...for you young buck Ranters...John Adams was an All SEC DE AND punter for LSU from 77-81. One of the very best players in that era. Played with Woodley, Ensminger John Ed Bradley, Willie Teal, and many others who left there mark at that time. He was a phenomenal athlete and competitor. Drafte...

I spent 2 hours with Johnny and the team along with Ferguson at the SEC Basketball Tourney LSU Pep Rally in Nashville. Johnny is building something truly special. He talked at length about the importance of not only playing and practicing like a champion, but being a champion in how you interact w...

I really like the home page of the site with Scott's pic behind to the left as if "in the shadows" of Dandy Don's pic. Their resemblance is uncanny. Very classy.
And the content is perfect for those of us who seem to live life on the run and only have a quick view minutes to get a summary of LS...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU Baseball Quotes and Fan Appreciation - Iam4LSUnTN on 4/12/13 at 10:01 am|
Those Skip quotes are priceless. He was the needling nemesis to Miss St in the same way that Spurrier was the needling nemesis to TN when FL always beat them.
I love that type of coach trash talk. ...

Bust - Simon as a 3rd round pick...too inconsistent.

This year reminded me of the 1978 season when we were "left at the alter" with no post season bid after an "emerging" season with a very similar record. The next 5 years brought 5 NCAA tourneys, 3 Sweet Sixteen, 2Elite Eight, and 1 Final Four Finishes.
If we can replicate that, then LSU basketba...

I was at the game, so don't know what he was sayIng on the radio. But can tell you their inability to consistently make FTs was excruciating to watch, and they did look like they were playing not to lose in the 2nd half.

Living in Nashville and having seen Courtland Finnegan emerging years in the NFL, I can vouch that this is an excellent comparison. Small in physical stature, but cat quick, instinctive, with a mean streak that backs down to nobody. Finnegan turned from a 7th round draft pick into a Pro Bowl selecti...

At this critical point in TM's life, it's all about building Trust with high integrity. Best way to do that is make darn sure your actions (or inaction when it comes to weed) are consistent with his stated intentions. In time, he will redeem himself in the NFL if he gets this priority down first. ...
