[quote]This. We have DE's that are faster than their RB's. LB's that can outrun their WR's. Cb's, safeties and WR'S that will run circles around all of them. Then you have Buga, he'll take his pick on whether he'll outrun them or just run them over.[/quote]
You sure do make this Wiscy game so...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Frank Wilson: Jamal ADAMS is monster - Dick Macho on 8/20/14 at 2:19 am|
It sure does look like the Chief will be calling much more aggressive schemes this year and that adds up to one or both of the safeties stepping up close to the LBs and focusing more on run support and covering guys that the LBs might have had to worry about last year due to the safeties backing u...

What if a coach says good words about a player's actions?
| Tiger Rant|| re: Frank Wilson: Jamal ADAMS is monster - Dick Macho on 8/20/14 at 1:43 am|
I love that Adams is looking so great and is getting alpha respect but if this kid has Honey Badger prowess at his size then he will rewrite record books on Saturdays and Sundays. Because Frank knows what he is talking about I am sure that he has the physical abilities that Tyrann has but if he h...

The fact that the biggest joke in the NCAA coaching world is in charge of that offense should be plenty of reason. Nick Saban hiring Lane Kiffen as his new OC is the same level of brain fart as taking the field for a home game in Bryant-Denny wearing a Purp and Gold LSU shirt....

| Tiger Rant|| re: Beckwith and the LBs - Dick Macho on 8/19/14 at 5:55 pm|
I think that the answer to this is not just about a personnel change at MLB because Beckwith wouldn't have been able to consistently handle RBs breaking free down the middle with OGs targeting him either. After all, an OG is used to blocking DTs right? An average MLB shouldn't be able to shed hi...

It's OK bro. Our Tiger brethren just don't understand your genius. I get that all the time.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Link: SEC Preview by Yahoo Sports - Dick Macho on 8/18/14 at 3:12 pm|
Reloading is not quite what comes to mind when our Tigers are developing five or six SEC caliber starters out of kids who graduated HS less than 6 months ago.
Reloading seems more like what happens when a senior starter who has left for the NFL is replaced by a RS junior or even a RS senior w...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Link: SEC Preview by Yahoo Sports - Dick Macho on 8/18/14 at 12:04 pm|
It really isn't about disrespecting LSU. It's just that nobody believes that any program could possibly lose such a huge group of NFL ready seniors and still come close to competing in our conference.
If the staff can develop a championship team this year then there will be no doubt where t...

It's official then! TV will be the biggest impact freshman for the Tigers this year. Write it down boys and girls, it's undeniable. The only reason why the NCAA ever holds up LSU freshmen until the very last minute like this is when the player is going to be a huge difference maker immediately....

That just can't be right guys. Tolliver would literally be able to play any position except DT at an All SEC level. Same durned thing on offense.
If Tolliver really is that big with CB speed and quickness then his future will be brighter at DE in Mingo's mold. And then he would make Ming...

Yeah, my vote is going to the 6 and a half foot DE named Hunter sporting LaRon guns. There is no way that every single QB won't have DH at the top of their "Holy Shit" list before every pass play.
I would love to see that guy wave his finger after every ball he swats down while shaking his h...
