[quote]Loser: the self-important fan with no skin in the game. [/quote]
Just to let you know I do have skin in the game, you have missed my point and there is no reason to call me a loser. It's just an opinion. The point of my post is that they do make a lot of money.............but in a very s...

Just a couple of points from a guy who thinks this will hurt college football.
First, Here is a link to a story that was in S.I. a while back that puts the "money" aspect of this argument into perspective.. "Sports Illustrated found that after two years of retirement, 78 percent of NFL players...

I'm a L.S.U. fan and I was hoping that the Orange and Blue Tigers would take it all.
My friend, you did not win the big one, but this is a season and a football team that people will be talking about for as long as they play college football. Congratulations on a great year......

BILLY CANNON JR.
At the time, LSU was struggling, we were losing recruits to out of state schools, and the son of the greatest football player ever to wear the purple and gold signed with Texas A&M.
He never produced much in college but the image of Billy Cannon's son spurning the Tigers was dev...

When the game was over we still had traffic and drunks to contend with, but just seeing the Tigers play was enough of a thrill to s...

The empty stadium was mentioned by Holly Rowe and by the two announcers as if the whole nation couldn't see the empty seats for themselves. I watched football yesterday from the time Game Day came on air on E.S.P.N. I didn't see another stadium empty as early as Tiger Stadium ........especially wi...

I saw three games in 1958 when the Tigers won the National Championship. I saw the Tigers beat Hardin-Simmons (20-6), Ole Miss (14-0) and Kentucky (32-7). We bought the tickets the night of the game on the "family plan". Adult tickets were four dollars and my ticket cost fifty cents! This was ba...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Complete flip in the Rant fanbase? - Eauxld Geauxld on 1/1/13 at 1:27 pm|
This is the second year in a row that LSU had been embarrassed on a national stage. Look at the stats. We're lucky the game was as close as it was.
LSU has had a real issue on offense for too damn long and the only reason I am upset is that everyone can see that EXCEPT for Les Miles.
