| Tiger Rant|| re: For those who complain about Jim Hawthorne. Please read - WacoTiger on 2/17/14 at 9:22 pm|
I agree about his negativity. For example, while listening to his broadcast of football games, every time the opposing team's receiver catches a pass, he says "he was wide open." I listen to the broadcast while at the games and the opposing receiver is only wide open about 10% of the time. He has...

First, Kentucky flies in to BR today (most teams fly in the night before a road game). I am assuming the weather is fine for travel today. Kentucky will play LSU tomorrow (Tuesday) night. The fact that fans cannot attend the game does not factor into the equation. Kentucky may not be able to fly...

[quote]I came out of the fall with the idea that we’d end up playing a freshman at second base, either (Danny) Zardon or (Kramer) Robertson. We had recruited a kid named Conner Hale, thinking he could replace Christian Ibarra at third. What happened is Christian was drafted in the 32nd round and de...

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...

Why don't Aggies like peanut M&M's? Too hard to peel.

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.

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...

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...

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...

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 ...
