Great summary by Wilknutz. Funny how things don't change much in 25 years from when I lived in Tampa back in late 80's.
Only thing for experiencing a full contact sport for adults only, the best "Shoe Show" in town is at Mons Venus on S. Dale Mabry. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Plenty of Sizzle - Iam4LSUnTN on 12/9/13 at 7:59 am|
I felt humiliated at the 1/1/2005 game. Lived in Iowa and the family flew down to the game on a Iowa Hawkeye Alumni Charter. That flight back was excruciating.
So yeah...time for pay back. Both teams have a really strong and proud fan base. Can't wait. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Iowa vs. LSU in The 2014 Outback Bowl - Iam4LSUnTN on 12/9/13 at 7:43 am|
Rantes who say Tampa/St. Pete is a poor venue for a bowl game are just wrong. I lived in that area for 4 years. The stadium is a first rate experience. And besides the game, there are lots of entertainment alternatives including Busch Gardens with the kids...Mons Venus to watch the "shoe show" with...

One of the most insightful analysis ever read on the rant. Great stuff. Some of which was not obvious or intuitive for the casual basketball fan. Thanks...you are an anvils basketball junkie! Keep it up. :dude:...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Cam coach in waiting.......nola.com speculation - Iam4LSUnTN on 12/5/13 at 5:57 pm|
We should assume just because Cam failed as a HC in the NFL at Miami, that he is not a major college HC material. Case in point...Bill Arnsparger failed in a very brief stint as the HC for the NY Giants, went back to Miami as a dominant DC. For us older "Ranters" we all know his brief success as LS...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why is Landry not nominated for any awards? - Iam4LSUnTN on 12/5/13 at 5:31 pm|
Jarvis reminds me so much of Hines Ward...toughest SOB as a WR ever seen in the NFL. Even though had average speed out of GA, dude would take your head off as a blocker, had the heart of a champion, Velcro hands, and absolutely 0 fear. Darn if that just also described Jarvis Landry. Hope he has a ...

Tampa a great destination Bowl/ vacation...Ybor City for cigars and spanish food at the Columbian Restaurant, then night life. Wake up with a hang over and head across the bay to Clearwater beach with front row view of the hard bodies. Next day take the kids to Busch Gardens. Take in the free Buds...
| Tiger Rant|| re: On a scale: P&G gameday shirt to obnoxiously obsessed, which LSU fan are you? - Iam4LSUnTN on 12/3/13 at 7:12 pm|
I am much like what you described. Graduated from LSU in 1981, left LA for my career, married my college sweetheart and 8 moves later, never came back to lice in LA (yet). But my love for the state, the people, the culture, and LSU has not only endured, but is stronger emotionally attached than eve...
| Tiger Rant|| re: OL for 2014...how do you see the line shaping up? - Iam4LSUnTN on 12/1/13 at 9:10 am|
Agree...we actually have quality depth in OL.
Has anyone heard though about the extent of Porter and Hawkins' injuries from Friday toward the end of the game? Hope they were minor, but Porter seemed to be in a lot of pain. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Gonna be sad seeing another memorable season come to an end - Iam4LSUnTN on 12/1/13 at 8:54 am|
Agree. My Son and I started the season watching the TCU game streamed onto his computer sitting on an ironing board in St. Andrews, Scotland Hotel room a with a 2AM wake up call. We then celebrated the victory with 36 holes of golf at KingsBarnes the best golf course in the world IMO. No matter wh...
| Tiger Rant|| re: looking like lsu vs iowa (or Michigan St) in outback bowl - Iam4LSUnTN on 12/1/13 at 8:23 am|
Actually hoping for Outback. Tampa is a great destination...underrated...with beaches across the bay. Frankly, much better than Dallas or Orlando (unless your family is into theme parks).
And an LSU -Iowa rematch 9 years later would be nice. For those who think Saban is some football genius, he ...

To also make a statement...at that moment, I recall thinking our D was really lacking hustle...not moving their feet.
Also makes a statement to the other team about our quality depth. We havent been able to say that for eons. ...
| Tiger Rant|| The Catch...and The Freshman Drive - Iam4LSUnTN on 11/30/13 at 12:32 pm|
The AR game will go down in Tiger Lore with 2 memorable story lines...
1. "the Catch - Landry's 32 yd one handed catch over the back shoulder of the defender that was a critical 3rd down conversion and irronically was the same play that Mett was injured.
2. " The Freshman Drive" - Then 2 OL...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Mettenberger is my all time favorite LSU QB - Iam4LSUnTN on 11/30/13 at 11:38 am|
Mett is Bert "The Ruston Rifle" Jones reincarnated.
Thanks for the memories Mett. Hope your knee recovers in time for one last "Curtain Call" at the Bowl game. Then off to a successful NFL career. :cheers: :cheers:...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Jennings is our answer for bama. - Iam4LSUnTN on 11/30/13 at 11:33 am|
This is a dumb topic. It suggest Mett was not the answer. He only had 2 great performances last 2 years against Bama at QB. W/O Mett, we lose worse.
Not taking anything away from AJ. He is our future, and his "Cool Hand Luke" performance yesterday was truly special. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Ego and Johnson, what's the percentage they return next year? - Iam4LSUnTN on 11/28/13 at 8:59 am|
Johnson for some reason has not looked near as cat quick and fast in open spaces chasing QBs or RBs as he has been billed or as we saw early in his career. As some posters have suggested, it is logical to wonder if he has been dealing with minor injuries plaquing him all season. Hope he returns to ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Connor Neighbors 2014 - Iam4LSUnTN on 11/28/13 at 8:48 am|
Not sure why Ranters have to compare every decision one makes to the NFL draft status. In the case of Neighbors, he is the classic feel good, work hard, get good happy endong story that makes college football so darn awesome.
I love this guys attitude. The link story was terrific. ...

Some of the negative hyperbole about our recruiting is really ridiculous rants. :usa:

Terrific post and linked article. I remember that game like it was last season. Mainly because of the bitter taste of ending in a tie when we outplayed the Buckeyes. It was as intense before kickoff as any game ever at LSU because of the 2 episodes noted here. They finally made both teams enter the ...
