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...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Here are the facts about the SEC's bowl tie-ins & LSU's bowl chances - hogeb on 11/24/13 at 10:54 am|
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...

I wouldn't mind playing Clemson in the NC game, which is possible if Clemson beats FSU, Oregon loses to Stanford or UCLA, and LSU jumps OSU. That's my ideal scenario :nana:...
| 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....

2007 O-line was pretty good:
This year has the potential to be better and probably has more talent across the board, but they need to show they can control the game the way the 2007 line did on the field first. I think they will
| Tiger Rant|| re: Favorite LSU game - hogeb on 8/24/13 at 10:07 am|
I was in the student section for the earthquake game, but at the time I didn't think it was any louder than most other games. Arkansas in 2007 was louder, I thought, but we had an obnoxious hogs fan in the seats next to us so it may have just been them :lol:...

If you sign up for a difficult class, study, and work hard, you expect an A. You would probably be more dissapointed with a high B than a D because the B would show that you fell just short of expectations while the D would indicate that you'd over-estimated your abilities and you were lucky to pass...

Last year we had three Jrs and a senior start on the DL (Mingo, Downs, Logan, Montgomery) withe a Soph playing starters minutes (Johnson). We had two Jrs and a Fr at LB (Barrow, Minter, Alexander) with a bunch of true freshmen getting a lot of time. We had three Jrs and a fr starting in the secondar...

Fairly happy means that I'm not expecting any coaching changes but I would be excited about any infusion of new blood. It also means that I think adjustments can be made that could improve the team next year without any new hires, and I think Mile's track record shows that he usually fixes problems,...

It's too easy to succumb to the assumption that the opinions expressed on the rant represent those of the larger fan base. As with any message board, participants on the rant tend to be those who express dissastisfaction more than those who are satisfied. The large percentage of ranters who are dema...

These are all hangover predictions.

Hill ran to the wrong gap on two plays in the previous drive. His 10 yds/carry was inflated by two big runs but his poor executuion cost us first downs twice in the fourth qtr and led to 3 and outs. I'm not excusing the play calling all game, but the failure on this play was execution, not the call....

First, we have to agree on a definition for negatiger. I don't think we should include any fan who is negative about a play or a game or even coach Miles. A negatiger is someone who is negative all the time and firmly believes that only through the expression of negativism can we expect to see impro...
