[quote]Probably still strikes out too much to make it in bigs[/quote]
He had a very low SO ratio and a very high OB percentage this spring. All reports out of Chicago are that he will probably join the team at some point mid-season or towards the end of the year. :geauxtigers:...
| Tiger Rant|| re: OU Fans already calling for revenge... - rossman on 3/13/13 at 2:58 pm|
I spent 3 years in Norman. The main difference between OU fans and LSU fans is this: If LSU loses, "the coach is an idiot," "our qb is a moron and the 2nd stringer should be starting (no matter who it is)," "the players are a bunch of bums!" If OU loses, "the refs cheated that game from us," "the...

1. Listen to music while your run. It helps keep rhythm to your breathing. Also, push through when you don't think you can keep going. Once you push through the wall, adrenaline kicks in and you will be fine. The hardest part of running (at least for me) is the first 5-10 minutes.
2. 90% ...

This pisses me off as well.
Another huge problem I have is the lack of stats and other game scores updates. I've never been in a stadium that shows the in-game stats and scores of interest less than they do at LSU. It is almost comical. That is what most places use the ribbon boards on the u...

[quote]I didn't say that being at LSU negates your NFL chances merely that LSU is a more run heavy team and your production is bound to be low.

Just a heads up: Tiger Terrace is not the same thing as the club. Tiger terrace seats are the first ~2 rows of the upper deck and have chair backs. They do not have the amenities of the club level. You are in the upper deck. They just named them "tiger terrace" so they could charge an additiona...

You said that Les Miles is not an elite coach because, and correct me if I'm wrong, he lost games he had no business losing. (In fact, you used the word elite before I did....and consequently it was not in quotes....so I'm not sure how it is my word. But that is besides the point).
