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)

I don't know how you guys get over losses so easily. This reminds me of the interview with the tennis champion Björn Borg.

He replied that he didn't remember any of the victories, but has never forgotten any ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Harris, Jennings even at QB as LSU practice opens - Coeur du Tigre on 8/6/15 at 3:03 am
I don't care who starts, we need a QB that prevents the opposing defense from stacking the box. Cameron isn't working with NFL QB's here, he has to recognize the abilities of the QB's he's working with now and design effective offenses for them. Is he able to do this? Certainly he's had enoug...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
