| Tiger Rant|| re: Spring Game set for April 5th.......time TBD - hogeb on 2/7/14 at 11:26 am|
I'm most interested in seeing how the defensive players are utilized. Particularly Beckwith, Feist, and Louis at linebacker. But also Herron, Bain, and Gilmore on the DL. I'm hoping to see players settle in to their best positions, and I'm anxious to see how Chavis puts it all together....

This is a great article that really puts things in perspective. These are kids living their dream. The parents are proud as peacocks, and the schools care about the kids and want what's best for them. For fans to become jaded about "the process" and post negative comments about these kids is asinine...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: No. 9 overall recruit Adoree' Jackson is the highest ranked prospect yet to comm - hogeb on 2/4/14 at 12:52 pm|
After reading that article I think he would flourish under a coach like Miles. He needs a players coach who makes playing fun. Hope he feels the same way.
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: How does LSU Finish this Class? - hogeb on 2/3/14 at 8:46 pm|
I agree with this list, plus there may be a chance to add Pfau and McCray. We can only hope for Jackson or Carter....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Calipari gives LSU all the credit - hogeb on 1/29/14 at 6:58 pm|
Yes, I remember that about Brown. That's why I respected him so much and enjoyed rooting for him. From what I gather from following KentuckySportsRadio (I grew up in KY but attended LSU), Calipari is similar, though he doesn't have the length of career, so I wouldn't say he has done as much, but I ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Calipari gives LSU all the credit - hogeb on 1/29/14 at 11:29 am|
He's actually a lot like Dale Brown, in my opinion, and I really liked Dale Brown. He may not always toe the NCAA line, but he does right by his players....
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU vs UK 1/28 - hogeb on 1/28/14 at 8:10 am|
LSU seems to be getting respect from KY fans. This is from KentuckySportsRadio:
[quote]LSU has two really good bigs in Johnny O’Bryant and freshman Jordan Mickey, who was named to the Wayman Tisdale Watch List for best freshman of the year, along with Julius Randle and James Young. Cal called O’B...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU vs UK 1/28 - hogeb on 1/28/14 at 7:29 am|
Yeah, I did mean Young. I have dyslexia with those two, I don't know why. I grew up in Richmond, though I haven't lived there for over 30 years. I try to keep up with KY BB, somewhat. I agree that they seem to be coming together, and I think they likely beat LSU by between 5 - 10, but if they are vu...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU vs UK 1/28 - hogeb on 1/26/14 at 10:08 pm|
KY is not as good on the road as at home, so there's a chance, though a slim one. The Harrison twins are getting better, and that's a bad sign for LSU. Cauly-Stein also broke out of his slump against Georgia, so he could be dangerous. KY may be finally settling in as a team and not a group of freshm...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: LSU Is Going To Land Three More 5 Stars In This Class - hogeb on 1/26/14 at 10:44 am|
I think we are fairly likely to get Dupre, Valentine, Kelly, and Trey L. I have my fingers crossed for Adoree, Carter, and Young, but would be pleasantly surprised by any of them. I also think we will pull 2-3 others, depending on whether we get any of the three or none, from Porter, Granier, Gage, ...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Let's finish #1 in recruiting!! - hogeb on 1/7/14 at 6:14 am|
LSU is in on a lot of national recruits and often finishes 2nd, but we finish first quite often, too. I'd say our ratio is better than most. Not being able to get all of the best high school players in the country every year is not a bad problem to have....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Matt Elam in play? - hogeb on 1/4/14 at 10:24 am|
Valentine is going to visit UK. Kentuckysportsradio is suggesting that it may be due to his friendship with Matt Elam. They say Elam and Valentine have developed a good friendship and may want to play together ([link=(http://kentuckysportsradio.com/main/three-of-the-many-reasons-why-matt-elam-will-p...

I think there are tiers of need and likelihood.
If we can get any 7 of these players, we'll have a very strong recruiting class

The Big10 is a aquatint themselves pretty well this year. Nebraska and Michigan St. look good. Iowa's defense and running game were legit, so this was a good win for LSU....
| Tiger Rant|| re: How many here really think the way Jennings played today - hogeb on 1/1/14 at 4:44 pm|
It looked like Cameron used the extra time to add blocking schemes against the Iowa linebackers and not a lot of new stuff for Jennings. I doubt we got any type of preview of next season at all.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Les Miles Winning Percentage at LSU - hogeb on 12/12/13 at 7:46 am|
Most unrealistic expectations come from a lack of perspective. Three things most people forget:
1 - These are still college kids. Getting them prepared, keeping them motivated and focused, and managing off the field distractions are major challenges for any college head coach. Miles does a pretty...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Tigers Toyed With Auburn....WTF Happened? - hogeb on 12/8/13 at 10:19 am|
Auburn is riding an emotional high. That explains their season's crescendo. The long delay between now and the BCS champ game will hurt them, but we'll have to see how much. It could bring them back down to earth, or it could sustain their current level of play if Malzahn can keep their confidence s...

S. Carolina will most likely have 3 losses since they will probably lose to Clemson. The worst case scenario, bowl wise, for LSU has Auburn beating Alabama, TAMU beating Missou, and then SC beating Auburn in the SEC Champ game. That puts Auburn, Alabama, SC, and Missou ahead of LSU and no SEC team i...

| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU defense needs some work - hogeb on 9/15/13 at 10:13 am|
Didn't Kent St. actually have the ball about 11 minutes longer than LSU? That may be why you think they "ran the ball up and down the field". Since LSU scored quickly, Kent State was on the field more, but they weren't running the ball up and down the field....

Sorry, didn't read the thread title closely enough. I agree with Miss St. then, their offense was terrible. I didn't see any of our opponents look particularly good yesterday. A&M looked okay, but their defense looked pretty bad....
