| Coaching Changes|| re: Bobo taking assistants with him? - BigTiger80 on 12/23/14 at 6:17 pm|
This may just be a rumor but I've heard that A&M is reaching out to UGA DC Jeremy Pruitt. He's making $850,000 and the Aggies would at least double his pay.
Again this may not be true....

I just don't see Saban going to the Bears or to the NFL. In fact I don't see him finishing his career anywhere else but Bama.
I think if he would have left it would have been last year for Texas. I wonder if the real reason he didn't take the job was because he wouldn't have had full control and ...

"Damn you are dumb.
As far as your question goes, michigan doesn't even want him. Les isn't going anywhere."
How do you know they don't want him? I find it hard to believe that Michigan has not reached out to George Bass about Miles. And no I'm not a big fan of Miles.
If anything your comme...

I don't think there is any doubt that Bama had better players on offense than us. Cooper, Yeldon and OJ Howard are among the best players at their position in the nation. The same can't be said for our counterparts in those positions.
Sims is nearly 4 years older than AJ but he also has had bette...

Maybe he isn't a splash hire but he is definitely an upgrade over what they had.

Othello: "Bo should have been fired but I guess a lot of possible coaches were turned off by the idea of them firing a pretty successful coach and that their options were few.
Still a bad hire, IMO."
I think you are spot on....
| Tiger Rant|| re: A reality check to actual LSU fans - BigTiger80 on 11/29/14 at 3:31 am|
I believe 2 big concerns have to be exodus of 3rd year players to the NFL and our lack of a passing game.
No school loses as many players early as we do. Something is just not right as Alabama generally has the top recruiting class if not one of the top classes and doesn't lose nearly the number ...

I was a student then and I recall the week before we played a lousy team and after the game the LSU students were yelling "USC! USC!" as we were leaving the stadium.
I've been a season ticket holder since 1982 and that is the loudest and most exciting game I have ever been to at Tiger Stadium. T...

| Tiger Rant|| re: SEC Using 6 Day Option for LSU - Florida Weekend (Oct 11th) - BigTiger80 on 9/29/14 at 12:10 pm|
I would think that the games they are closely looking at are Ole Miss at A&M and Auburn at Ms State. If Bama, Auburn and Ms State win this weekend, I believe they would select Auburn at State. I don't see any chance of LSU-Florida being selected unless LSU, Bama and State win this weekend. Of cours...

These are the games for Sept 20. I would think the LSU game is the second choice that day and would be on ESPN or ESPN2 at 6 or 6:30.
Indiana at # 20 Missouri
Northern Illinois at Arkansas
Florida at # 3 Alabama
Mississippi State at # 10 LSU

LSU and Auburn have national appeal and will generate ratings and so does A&M and obviously Bama. The Mississippi schools do not. Miss St has not had a winning SEC record since 1999 and Ole Miss last won the SEC over 50 years ago.
If LSU and Auburn are both undefeated they will be in the top 10 ...
