I went and we had a great time except obviously for the game. Had fun at Sky Bar also. Auburn fans were nice before and after. That's not the case with some other schools. My first time there since 2008 and will definitely go back in '16....

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
# 24 South Carolina at Vanderbilt
# 7 Texa...
| Tiger Rant|| re: If you had to guess, what time is the LSU/Auburn game going to be? - BigTiger80 on 9/2/14 at 6:22 pm|
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 ...

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....

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).:

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...
