Actually, I think it is a low percentage. I think it is closer to 99%. What program wouldn't want an average of over 10 wins per year, 2 SEC titles (toughest conference in USA), 1 BCS national title, 2 BCS appearances, a 12-0 regular season, etc? All while Nickie is coaching in our league. I can...
| SEC Rant|| How many coaching mistakes did Saban make yesterday? - WacoTiger on 12/1/13 at 10:16 am|
I haven't seen the game on TV yet, but I did listen to the Auburn and Bama radio broadcasts yesterday. Saban appeared to make several critical coaching mistakes. Let's try to list some (you can add those that I missed):
1. Not kicking a field goal to go up 2 scores and going for it on 4th down in...

An Aggie was hired to work at the M&M factory to proofread, but he got fired because he kept throwing out all of the W's.
Why don't Aggies like peanut M&M's? Too hard to peel.
Did you hear about the Aggie that was raking leaves and fell out of the tree and broke his leg?
Aggies were drivin...

Went to their newly renovated baseball field this year as well and they have the same problem as their football stadium. Seems bats just love to sh#t on their heads.
| Tiger Rant|| Bat Guano Problem at A&M - WacoTiger on 11/14/13 at 9:00 am|
If any Aggie mentions "corndogs" to you this week, you might remain them of the horrible stench in their stadium when we went last year. To put it nicely, I refer to it as Bat Guano. Legend has it that the bats actually migrate from Town Lake in Austin each evening, fly to Kyle Field, dump a loa...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Serious Les Miles question - WacoTiger on 11/12/13 at 8:54 am|
What was handed to him in 2004? A team that lost 3 games, including to Iowa in the last seconds on a hail mary coached by a team known for defensive backs? A team that was 1-2 in the previous 3 bowl games? Sounds to me like he was handed a Ford in 2004 and turned it into a Mercedes. I've had mor...

So, before Miles got here we were a top 3 program? Are you serious? We lost 5 games in 2002 and 3 games in 2004 (after the national championship year). We lost 2 out of 3 bowl games before Les arrive...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Rashard Robinson - One Mistake and Done. - WacoTiger on 11/11/13 at 11:39 am|
So, we give up only 179 passing and one play was 52 yards, so we give up about 125 yards the whole game. That was "going after #28 all night"? In fact, we only gave up about 75 yards passing in the 2nd half. It wasn't the pass defense, it was the run defense that killed us. Not defending the mov...

Good enough for 9 -10 win? How about 13 wins in 2012, 12 wins in 2010, 12 wins in 2007? Is that not good enough for you? Sure, we lose 9 players early to the NFL from a championship defense and we only lose 2 games this year by a combined 6 points on the road and our season sucks? I'm sorry, but...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Art Briles, Chris Peterson, Cam??? - WacoTiger on 11/1/13 at 1:44 pm|
I think it would be a lot easier just to replace you as a fan. I have several Texas friends who would give their left nut if their school was anywhere close to be where LSU has been for the last 12 years. You are easily replaceable as a fan and it wouldn't cost LSU anything. If you have season ti...

Just get the radio off the internet (find a radio station) and it will be behind the TV broadcast. Slow down the TV broadcast to sync with DVR. That is how I do it, but then I realize how many times Hawthorne says an opposing receiver is "wide open" every time a catch is made or when he says Hill ...

Great (sad) story about Pacific Edge.

You really don't know much about football and clock management, do you? LSU managed the clock exactly the way they wanted to and the only downside was they only got 3 points instead of the 7 points everyone wanted. They kept TCU off the field and LSU scored. How could that be wrong? Bad officiat...
