| Tiger Rant|| re: Tigers v Bama v Ole Miss remaining schedule - JPLSU1981 on 4/20/14 at 9:16 am|
I think everyone respects the season Bama is having thus far, no question, but considering their final 4 series include arguably the top 3 opponents on their entire schedule, it's pretty fair to say Bama has on paper a tough stretch run. Hell even the fourth series (MissSt) could be a trap.

Hard for miles to lose control when he never had it...he has mastered the art of winning in the midst of absolute chaos. The miles era at LSU has been 4 things: wild, stressful, fun, and shockingly successful.
All that said, At this point miles can call it quits whenever he wants. His recruiting,...

SIAP, but this hit me the other day...don't like the recent trend, although the positive is that there's rarely a championship game in any men's sport these days that doesn't at least involve an SEC team.
We need to put an end to this in June (CWS) and In January....

Depreciation (your lease payments) + residual = total value of car.
If they set a high residual, your payments are lower. If they set a low residual, your lease payments are higher. In either case, it is basically dollar-for-dollar increase/decrease.. In either case, and excluding interest of cou...

Personally, I think it's stupid to buy a car when you could lease a car, give yourself an out, and still buy the car at the end of the lease and be out of pocket for the exact same amount that you would have paid had you bought up front with no option to walk away. It's a no-brainer...anyone that th...
| SEC Rant|| re: Official SEC Baseball Power Rankings: Week 5 - JPLSU1981 on 4/19/14 at 4:14 pm|
I think LSU has taken over the 3 spot....and better yet, lsu's schedule, on paper, clearly eases down the stretch with 3 of their final 4 series against 11-14 in the standings (tenn, A&M, auburn)
I predict LSU goes 8-4 down the stretch to finish 18-11-1... IMO the big question will become top8 se...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Tigers v Bama v Ole Miss remaining schedule - JPLSU1981 on 4/19/14 at 4:00 pm|
Yep, lsu's schedule certainly eases down the stretch....3 of our final 4 series are against 11-14 in the standings.
That said, regardless if the schedule looks favorable on paper, we need to take care of business and go 8-4 or 9-3 in the final 12 games....
| SEC Rant|| re: Why are LSU fans so obsessed with Bama on here? - JPLSU1981 on 2/8/14 at 5:46 pm|
Top two teams In cfb year-in-year-out (generally speaking)...LSU and Bama
Nick Saban coaches Bama, and is casting a large shadow over LSU since Bama started winning the titles.
21-0 hurt and won't go away until LSU wins it all again
Take Saban/Bama out of the picture, and lsu probably wins...

His recruiting class is littered with stars and there's no doubt in my mind they'll get LSU another national title in the next 3-4 years....

Hey team, what was the deal with OM receiving an unsigned LOI? Joke someone played on them or something else?
Not that it really matters , just curious. It's obvious that DG has always wanted to be a tiger ...I'm sure he is fond of OM as well, it's a good program on the rise....
| SEC Recruiting|| re: From Godchaux on twitter last night - JPLSU1981 on 2/8/14 at 11:11 am|
Certainly appears to me at the very least there was some late movement towards Ole Miss...I'd guess he was thinking of committing to OM, but his parents and the LSU coaches talked some sense into him And/or calmed whatever concerns he had.
Regardless of how it played out, I'm just glad he stuck w...

We were easily outnumbered by Iowa 65-35 and it indeed was probably our worst bowl turnout since 2000, but LSU had at least 10k in the stands. It wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting.
I wasn't embarassed like I thought I would be...we had a good turnout considering I was expecting 6-8k.

Unfortunately our program is showing the negative symptoms of success.

Yeah, LSU coaches know recruiting and have been doing this a long time. They aren't gonna let "hurt feelings" get in the way of a player that can help the program.

There's more to this story that's out there IMO.
