| Score Board|| re: Another brain dead decision by Les - BigTiger80 on 8/31/14 at 12:04 am|
When Wisconsin was getting ready to punt I thought about how disastrous a fumble would be. We fumble and lose the game I guarantee there would have been comments on here questioning why we even had someone back there to field it.

I flew to Los Angeles from Augusta, Georgia in 1984 for the USC game.
I drove to Bloomington, Indiana from BR in 1978 and to Boulder, Colorado from BR in 1979.
Also went to Notre Dame in 1998, Tucson in 2003 and to Phoenix in 2005 while living in Georgia.
I plan to go to Lambeau in 2016 and...

I don't see any chance of Bama losing to Florida in Tuscaloosa. It would be a major shock if Tenn or Miss St beat them and Ole Miss..well they are still Ole Miss.
I don't Bama losing more than 1 game during the regular season and may even go 12-0....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Any early predictions on LSU FL football gametime in Gainesville? - BigTiger80 on 7/11/14 at 6:02 am|
Unless both teams have multiple losses, it is highly likely that CBS will televise the LSU-Fla game at 2:30. Both teams are national brands (which drives ratings) and there is not another SEC game that day in which both teams have national appeal....

| Tiger Rant|| re: Best guess on Florida kickoff time? - BigTiger80 on 6/9/14 at 6:07 pm|
The games that day include UGA at Mizzou, Ole Miss at A&M, Bama at Ark and Aub at Ms State
I would be surprised if it wasn't LSU at Fla in the 2:30 CBS slot given the national prominence both programs have. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Rotation - Can Les phase the team back to elite level? - BigTiger80 on 1/17/14 at 6:58 am|
I would give the defense a C grade. They gave up alot of points and were shredded by Georgia but that was early in the season with a retooled defense.
However there was no excuse for allowing Ole Miss to drive down the field and beat us. The Rebs don't have the studs on offense that Georgia has.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Miles needs a Payraise?? - BigTiger80 on 1/17/14 at 6:41 am|
I support Miles but he is being paid very well. He shouldn't be given a raise just because other coaches are being paid more.
Any raise should be based on merit in my opinion, such as winning championships.

The top 15 of the latest AP poll before the bowl games is in parenthesis. I am using the AP poll because there will not be another BCS poll and the AP selects a National Champion. The team in front of the parenthesis is where I believe they will end up(this doesn't mean I agree with this).:
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU number 7 in the way too early poll - BigTiger80 on 12/20/13 at 6:13 am|
Obviously Jennings is the key.
I think Georgia is ranked too low. They have about 17 starters coming back and Mason is a really good QB. Like us, their defense must be better or they will have a similar season.
Noone has commented on Florida at 23. I'm not sold on Muschamp. Yes he did win 11 g...

Iowa Fan, please excuse some of the childish responses here. I don't know why some our of fans can't take constructive comments from opposing teams.
Not making excuses, but I was there in 2005 and the team and fans were down from the departure of Saban to the Dolphins. I stayed at the team hotel ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Bowl Projections : Looks like LSU vs. Iowa in Outback - BigTiger80 on 12/1/13 at 9:23 pm|
LSU is going to the Cotton Bowl.
If FSU and Ohio St play in the title game, the winner of the SECCG goes to the Sugar and Bama goes to the Orange. The Cap One will take SC because they will be ranked higher than the loser of the SECCG. The loser of the SECCG goes to the Outback, LSU to the Cott...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Here are the facts about the SEC's bowl tie-ins & LSU's bowl chances - BigTiger80 on 11/26/13 at 4:59 am|
Another point about Georgia is they aren't even ranked. LSU is 15th in the polls and the Cotton/Outback/Cap One will take a ranked team first. Yes, they aren't obligated to do so but you better believe the TV networks will not be happy about an unranked team being in one of those bowls when they cou...
