Someday, people will look at the Greenbay record books and go, "I've heard of Farve, Starr, and Rodgers, but who is this Matt Flynn guy who holds records for biggest comeback and most touchdown passes?" :lol:
Great job, Matt Flynn! ForeverLSU...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How important is another LSU player winning the Heisman for you? - cafeaulait19 on 12/9/13 at 12:04 pm|
Not important - to me, it's as much about the best media blitz as it is the best player. Seems like more a distraction than a benefit to the team as a whole. ...
| More Sports Board|| re: So how would the four team playoff work if it were in place this year? - cafeaulait19 on 12/8/13 at 6:57 am|
I agree - conference championships should be viewed as a defacto first round of the playoffs. If not, get rid of them because it makes no sense for a team to watch a conf championship game from the couch and still be in the same 4-team playoff as the conf champ. Playing a conf champ game should be...

Landry has given 110% since he started out on special teams making killer tackles - we are lucky to have witnessed his many great catches as a Tiger! ...

I'm driving in from Houston and we'll be there, rain or shine! (hoping they sell LSU ponchos on campus...) I asked my college student the same question and she said the rain games are the most fun. Hope it's packed!

We miss his leadership and energy on D as much as we miss his skills. Hope he keeps it together and continues to succeed!...
| Tiger Rant|| re: A 10-3 finish - cafeaulait19 on 11/13/13 at 7:52 am|
A win over A&M would be huge - we REALLY need that right now, and I think it's very achievable. Might be a shoot out like Georgia game, and we will need to score on every drive, but we can't let the Aggies take one from us at home! :geauxtigers:...
| Tiger Rant|| re: The secret to team depth and player retention - cafeaulait19 on 11/13/13 at 7:48 am|
[quote]I was contemplating this very subject yesterday, wondering how Bama is able to hold onto guys that are obviously ready to move on in their careers and make millions, i.e. Fluker, Mosely, and the LB that came back last year among many others. Well, we got a little insight from Fluker's situati...

[quote]The SECs only shot for an NC is Bama this year and they do not want to miss the last shot of the BCS era. [/quote]
Exactly, and more importantly to the SEC, lots of money on the line if SEC is shut out of NC game. I can't see this being a game LSU can pull out at the end, regardless of h...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How many LSU fans actually hate Nick Saban? - cafeaulait19 on 10/30/13 at 7:38 am|
I hope he never wins another game anywhere, ever.
Don't hate him personally, and don't find it that unusual that he lied about taking a pro job. Didn't like it, but not surprised.
But taking a job at a rival school in the same conference feels a LOT like betrayal. Now, if he were losing al...

MLB season should end with the World Series around Labor Day (late Aug/early Sep).
NFL should get rid of pre-season games entirely and just play the regular season.
MLB should not be allowed to draft players from high school - must be out 3 years like football....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Sam Montgomery Passes Drug Test - cafeaulait19 on 10/24/13 at 8:03 am|
Wow, if true, ESPN should be accountable for reporting damaging rumors. (like that would ever happen....) The Texans got rid of him for whatever reason, but to falsely turn it into a drugs issue is irresponsible at best....

[quote]Sam shoulda been smoking with starters, just gave the Texans an easy way out to get rid of three scrubs. [/quote]
Yeah, can't help but think Kubiak needs to add some guys with all the injuries, and these 3 just gave him an easy way to free up roster spots.
Really sad that these guys h...

This does go hand in hand with everyone griping about the gameday experience - people show up later, stand around in the shade by the concession stands, leave early, etc when it's a 2:30 or, God forbid, an 11:00 AM game in 85-plus de...

Agreed - Oline - stay healthy and play smart so Mett has time and doesn't get hit/sacked too often.

Zach to the Texans - could be drafting in the 20s; lots of clamoring for a QB over here.

Sad for guys like Katz, Cotton, etc who have had their one CWS go up in flames.
Disappointed that a team this good looks so bad when it counts. Kinda like football but less devasted.
I really thought they would make it to the final series, though..
