I agree with the OP - well said. And dropping those short passes killed us - that's what everyone says we have to be able to do, and we had the play called and the pass there - multiple times. :banghead:...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Bottom line -- you can't win without QB play - cafeaulait19 on 11/9/14 at 9:08 am|
Bama just did (win without particularly good QB play). And don't forget we lost Zach Lee to baseball and then Gunner Kiel to chestlessness, so we had recruited two who were supposed to be 'all that' and ended up with zero. But I agree it's extremely painful to watch the very slow progression of ou...

So sorry to hear this - must be a terrible time to have a job like this. All the best to you and your family, Coach Miles - prayers sent.
| Tiger Rant|| re: SERIOUSLY: What's the best way to keep fans in the stadium? - cafeaulait19 on 10/21/14 at 9:09 am|
In 'the old days', the only way to watch the game was to go to the game - TV games were rare, and full game replays online, DVRs, etc, did not exist. They also did only a cursory check for alcohol entering the stadium. Both of those things have changed, and while the traffic was bad then, it's onl...

I remember wondering if the injured Gator was a LA kid that they all knew or something since the LSU players seemed more concerned than the UF players. I applaud our team leaders as well as the tone set by the staff - Jalen Collins and others seem to be class acts, too.

Yeah, he's one of my favorite guys - always finds the ball and makes the play - get back soon, Dwayne Thomas!

| Tiger Rant|| re: What will the split be in NRG be between LSU & Wisky fans..... - cafeaulait19 on 7/31/14 at 9:12 am|
I think LSU will bring the bigger actual fan base, but don't underestimate the 'JJ Watt' factor - he's a sports icon in Houston and his foundation is doing the Wisconsin tailgate. If he tries to rally the 'neutral' attendees, you may see a lot of red out there.
We'll be there (tickets through ...

What is it with the Astros and the Rockets? They'd rather have $ than players, I guess - new strategy :lol:

Good article - High praise to have the opponent say you've got the best stuff they've seen this year - hope he can keep it up and earn a spot in the regular rotation.

Good luck to Alfred Blue - hope he makes the roster and plays on Sundays. Glad to see LSU in Houston! :cheers:...

That's been the rumor - that they did a deal with New England to get Mallett. Not sure for what. Had hoped that was just a rumor, but with NE taking a QB and the Texans not, looks like it might happen. Not thrilled for the Texans...

And don't forget that Houston sports hero JJ Watt is a Wisconsin alum - anyone neutral will likely wear red for JJ.

I don't get it either - our own decisions and the umpire managed to kill any last gasp chance we had. And wiith Hale at the plate and a runner on, we had a chance!

That imploding is contagious - it spread from pitching to fielding and our whole team contributed.
That all those times we run ourselves off the base paths and lose possible runs can come back to bite us even with a 4 run lead.
That those Aggie cheers in the student section can get really anno...
