re: Cam Cameron's career, quarterbacks, and the running game - Coeur du Tigre on 10/6/15 at 10:07 am
Thanks a ton troop, your timing with this post is perfect. I was just reading your post history this morning because if anyone on this board knows Coach Cameron, it's you. This post says it all. We've all seen the videos of LaDainian, Randle El, Brees, Rivers, Flacco and Mettenberger. Add to that...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Live fire Civil War artillery exercise - Coeur du Tigre on 10/1/15 at 2:30 am
My grandfather told the story of when his great uncle would visit during my grandfather's childhood. The great uncle was a Civil War veteran and and later in his life was old and half senile. As he had no family left of his own, all the relatives would each take care of him for a few months. This wa...

re: Thoughts on Travonte Valentine wanting to return to LSU - Coeur du Tigre on 9/29/15 at 12:28 am
I think the decision on Valentine has already been made by the LSU staff. This article seems to be floating a balloon to start the spin on getting him back. I mean, how many times does Jimmy Smith interview former players that left in a cloud? I just hope he shows up in top shape....

From ATVS - If you're looking for proof of the OL's dominance, here you go: According to [link=(https://twitter.com/ESPNChing/status/645404854769315840)]this[/link], Eric Ching at ESPN states that LF 'averaged 8.6 yards per carry BEFORE contact.' If you give LF a head of steam like that, the reac...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Angels in Tiger Stadium, Why my dad is with this team this year... - Coeur du Tigre on 8/29/15 at 2:36 am
Coach McClendon passed away two days before the 2001 SEC Championship game in which we beat a heavily-favored Tennessee. We lost our starting RB, QB and one CB in the first half but fought back to win. I've always believed that the Tigers had an extra defensive tackle in that game....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Good article. A breath of fresh air compared to the normal coach-speak / obfuscation. Last year was frustrating but I have to believe that Cameron has made progress, especially with Harris.
