I travel a lot, and some times I get the same reaction. Several times people have told me they just like the colors, that's why they wear the hat, not because they are really LSU fans.
Oh, and more than once I've been overseas, threw one of my LSU hats on because it was a sunny day, and got a ...

Refer to Auburn 2010 for your answers.
Malzahn's offense with Cam Newton was a downhill, pulling guards, power rushing offense. If they made a first down, they usually went hurry up for the rest of that drive (but only after making the first first down, to give their D a rest if they didn't make...
| Tiger Rant|| re: what are the TCU team weaknesses? - NorfolkVATiger on 8/12/13 at 6:43 pm|
OL and LB, as others have stated. Losing a couple of starters, one at each spot this fall camp hasn't helped.
The DE Fields being suspended is a big blow also, especially for their pass rush....

He's bad when blocking in pass protection. Doesn't seem to even make an attempt. Wonder he didn't get one of our QBs killed.
Hope he does well in the NFL but he'll need to block on passing plays or he'll only be in the NFL long enough for a cup of coffee....

Confirms what we have seen in spring practice. Expect to see more one back. Couple of nice passes to the fullback. Using play action to set up throws to the TE over the middle.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Will our defense be even more agressive with Cam aboard ? - NorfolkVATiger on 2/28/13 at 7:35 pm|
If the offense is more productive, LSU should get comfortable leads early in 6 or 7 games during the regular season, forcing the other team to become predictable (i.e., throw the ball).
That does wonders for stats like sacks and interceptions, when the D can just pin their ears back and try to me...

[quote]A hot is tough when you are predominantly I-form play action. You have to be able to see it pre-snap and adjust your 7-step to a 3-step. It's just flat out difficult under center.

I am pretty sure there's a limit to how many coaches can be on the road recruiting at the same time - like maybe 7? Pretty sure you can't have them all gone at the same time.
If that's correct, it does seem like a crazy rule. Maybe somebody else can verify if that's true or if my memory is fail...

I thought this was a dumb subject line (not likely to happen) until I read your rationale.
Maybe it could happen. Our offense struggled at times to make first downs, especially early in games. If the passing attack helps us keep drives alive, we could have substantially more offensive snaps ove...

| Tiger Rant|| re: EGO Ferguson in 2012 - NorfolkVATiger on 7/19/12 at 10:17 pm|
Ego tended to stand up after the snap when he first got to LSU, allowing the OL to get under him and drive him back. He looked bad in the 2011 spring game.
I thought he got better in 2011 as the year went on, and gave us some quality minutes in relief. Remember at least one pass he batted down ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Which LSU RB leads team in rushing in 2012? - NorfolkVATiger on 7/9/12 at 9:03 pm|
Biggest impediment to Ford getting more snaps (and more yards) is that he's a pretty serious liability as a pass blocker, or at least he was in 2011. If Ford gets better at pass blocking, I would pick him to lead us again in rushing yards.
Doubt one back runs away with all the snaps this year - ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Scouting - Washington/Baylor Alamo Bowl replay on ESPNU - NorfolkVATiger on 7/8/12 at 8:50 pm|
Wilcox will get that defense headed in the right direction. They'll be much better on D this year.
Which means maybe they go from about 110th in total D last year to in the 60s this year? That would be a heck of an improvement. Doesn't mean it's going to be a GOOD defense this year.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Joe Robinson - NorfolkVATiger on 7/8/12 at 8:43 pm|
He did go to UNC. As I recall he was a DL coach, or co-DL coach, which was probably a "promotion" in terms of moving up the food chain of college coaches.
Of course Butch Davis got fired that first season and Joe lost his job along with all the other coaches....

How many times did they give up 40+ points last year? Quite a few as I recall.
They lost their only DL who was a serious threat to rush the passer (Perry), and a good DT.
