| Tiger Rant|| What do you think Kentucky game time will be? - Smoke Dinardo on 9/24/14 at 9:11 am|
I want to bring my 1 year old to a game this year but it has to be a 230 game. Is Kentucky likely to be a 230 game maybe on the sec network? Please advise. Thanks...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Even with more seats Tiger Stadium will never be like it use to be - Smoke Dinardo on 9/23/14 at 9:06 am|
The people that made Tiger Stadium aren't going to as many games anymore because of neutral site and cupcake games. I know because I am one of them. I never thought something like scheduling would affect my desire to attend games but it has. I am not going to pay full price for season tickets with 3...

I googled LSU 2016 schedule because I wanted to know when we went to Green Bay and saw this (see the link). It says we are playing Penn State in a neutral site in 2020? Any validity to this? If so where? Would be another let d...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Best Les Miles Quotes - Smoke Dinardo on 7/24/14 at 6:17 am|
Can someone tell me when and where he said this:
It was a few years ago. He was heading in for halftime and some girl (might have been Erin Andrews) was asking about the other teams defense and Les described the other team's D line was starting to look a little bit "toughy". Yes sounds like tuffy...
| Tiger Rant|| How Much does Scheduling factor into your enjoyment of College Football? - Smoke Dinardo on 5/3/14 at 10:33 pm|
Scale of 1-10?
For me it's a 9. This decade so far compared to 2000-2010 had been a major let down for me.
1) I have always been against scheduling cupcakes. I would be okay with one a year. But Sam Houston, Towson, Furman??? Come on.
2) I hate neutral site games. If you want to see a ga...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU to play Arizona St. & UCLA - Smoke Dinardo on 4/3/14 at 10:34 pm|
1) I went to ASU in 05 and it was awesome! Not sure why we need to do another home and home with them? I think that was a break even and don't think either school owes the other anything. Though I will go back to Tempe.
2) I'm still really pissed off Wisconsin is neutral site and we cannot go to ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Worst thing to happen while you were at LSU(Sports Related) - Smoke Dinardo on 3/3/14 at 5:38 pm|
No question. My last game as a student in grad school-Capiral One Bowl loss to Iowa in 04. Saban's last game. Just left a bad taste in my mouth...
| Tiger Rant|| re: What was the best/favorite thing that happen while you were a student? - Smoke Dinardo on 3/3/14 at 5:24 pm|
Did undergrad and grad school back to back and was there between 98 and 05. So I was there during the football turnaround, which was not a single event, but great to be a student during. Had a baseball NC in undergrad and a football NC in grad school. Both were awesome .
But the best was Auburn g...
| Tiger Rant|| re: VT Game in 2007 - Smoke Dinardo on 2/26/14 at 11:38 am|
Someone said nobody is upset about playing at Lambeau. Not true. That's probably what I am most pissed about because I have always wanted to go to Madison/Camp Randal for a good ole fashioned college game day experience. Now I probably won't in my lifetime.
This is why I like college football mor...
| Tiger Rant|| VT Game in 2007 - Smoke Dinardo on 2/25/14 at 11:35 am|
I just read through the entire "Best arse whooping LSU has given an opponent in the last decade thread"
Before I even opened it, VT in 2007 popped into my head. It is also the overwhelming most popular answer in the thread. This is not by accident-LSU fans want more if these games in Tiger Stadium...
| Tiger Rant|| Will 2015 LSU/SEC Football Schedule be another "Bridge" Schedule? - Smoke Dinardo on 1/14/14 at 1:16 pm|
In other words, when they finally do publish the completed 2015 football schedule (could be April, could be July, who knows?), will it be like the last 2 years where it's a bridge schedule and our East opponents make absolutely no sense?
Or will the SEC finally have a format that is universal for...
| Tiger Rant|| Future Game in Football with BYU? - Smoke Dinardo on 1/7/14 at 3:36 pm|
Found this with a simple google search of "2015 LSU football schedule."
I HATE not knowing who we are playing in upcoming years. I hate how they are "postponing" (canceling) the only good games (OU, ASU). I know the unkno...
| Tiger Rant|| re: SEC needs to move a "good" bowl tie in west - Smoke Dinardo on 12/24/13 at 9:58 am|
Yes I have always wanted this! I hate bowl tie ins. I hate how if we don't make the NC there is a finite amount of destinations we can go to. I don't agree on Houston or St. Louis-I think it should be further west. More exotic like Phoenix or San Diego. The biggest point here is- why is there no bow...
| Coaching Changes|| Will Petrino benefit from any big coaching changes? - Smoke Dinardo on 12/13/13 at 12:49 pm|
Saban to Texas and then Bama hiring Petrino would be as close to a strorybook ending as I can think of.
Just curious if anyone else thinks Petrino might somehow benefit because it seems like if Texas does get rid if Brown, even if Saban does not leave Bama, it will have a huge domino effect....
| Tiger Rant|| If Saban goes to Texas, does possibility of Home and Home increase? - Smoke Dinardo on 12/11/13 at 11:17 am|
Pipe dreaming to think we may play in Austin because even if this did happen, we all know in today's pussified world it would be a neutral site game in Houston.
But if Saban goes there I can see this happening. Both he and Miles have alot of balls, think they would win, and would want to recruit ...
| Tiger Rant|| Iowa has always been in my Top 5 Most Hated Teams - Smoke Dinardo on 12/8/13 at 9:35 pm|
I've always hated them since I was a kid. Initially, it was because they were the team that hurt Alvin Mack in The Program. Then, of course, the Capital One Bowl debacle (I was there). In fact, I would say they are my 4th most hated team in the country.
1) USC-obvious reasons
2) Texas-because th...

I have never been more confused about anything in college sports than this bridge schedule BS-----just seems like there is no method to the madness.
I am fully aware of the old rotation of opponents from the SEC east so no need to remind me. It's obvious the SEC heard the cry from LSU when ESPN t...

Because it is in Atlanta-America's worst city by leaps and bounds. Omaha is more fun and had more character.
The only location that would be worse for a bowl game in America would be the halls of Congress....
