re: Baseball: LSU 4, McNeese 5 | Final - TigerCard
Well, this sucks. When I saw that the game was on ESPN3 I rushed to fire up the computer, only to find out that the broadcast is blacked out here in CLEVELAND, OH!!!! I have no idea why that would be so. Anyway....Geaux Tigers!!...

Spring Options for Arden Key's position - TigerCard

re: Why was Canada fired from NC St. in 2015? - TigerCard
[quote]It doesn't matter. He was a finalist for some damn award. That's all everyone is thinking about. [/quote] That "some damn award" is only the Browles award, given to the top assistant coach every year. But who would care about that, right? So, Canada is fired in January, takes over the o...

re: Tora Tora Tora - TigerCard
They wouldn't have gotten the carriers; the only one anywhere near Pearl was the Enterprise, and it was still a day's sail out. But, as someone else noted, a second attack might well have destroyed the vital fuel storage facilities, which would have rendered Pearl useless for months....

re: Tora Tora Tora - TigerCard
Midway... In their haste to change from bombs to torpedoes, they left the bombs on the hanger decks. When the US dive bombers attacked, the three Japanese carriers that were hit were raging infernos within minutes. Unfortunately, the one carrier that wasn'the hit was able to launch the attack tha...

Refs show bias towards Bama? - There might be something to it..... - TigerCard
Complaints that the refs show favoritism to certain teams (especially a certain team in crimson) have long been a staple on the rant. Although I've always scoffed at such complaints, research shows that there might be evidence that they are not just sour grapes (although the article states that SEC...

re: Ark game will be tough to get a win there - TigerCard
As long as the current SEC schedule remains the same, this will ALWAYS be a tough game for us. Arkansas is probably the worst possible team for us to play the week after Bama, since they play a very physical, run-oriented style, just like us and Bama. Win or lose against Bama, the Hogs will always...

re: Nola article "lsu may be losing ground with Texas prospects" - TigerCard
Even if we were living up to our pre-season expectations and there was no uncertainty about Miles' future at LSU, the recruiting situation in Texas would be getting more difficult. I watched Charlie Strong succeed at Louisville, and when he was hired at Texas I knew it would only be a matter of tim...

re: Why are people down on Aranda? - TigerCard
[quote]Because some people are apparently very, very stupid. Brand new scheme, first game of the year, against the team the DC had coached for the previous 3 seasons and we held them to 16 points, caused 3 turnovers, and scored a touchdown. All this despite the offense going 3 and out and leaving...

re: Why does the Arkansas game scare me so much? - TigerCard
Yes, Arkansas has traditionally played us tough, and the new SEC schedule has made the game even more of a challenge. As long as we play the Hogs the week after Bama, this will be a difficult game. Under Bielema, they will always be a power rushing team with a big, nasty O-line. A week after the ...

re: Get to know tGBFTL's New Director - TigerCard
[quote]I'm a huge fan of Dr. Llinas. I think he's exactly what tGBFTL needs to spark some excitement back into the shows. He comes from a DCI-marching style, which is a very intense style, focused on precise and fast-paced movements, sharp designs, and also clear sound. [/quote] Well, for wha...

re: A THEORY about the band ban move - TigerCard
[quote]I’m a Jax State fan and I appreciate you letting me participate in the discussion. First, there is one glaring error in the math of your theory. LSU’s band would not be spending more to travel than JSU. They would be spending less because they are a smaller band. From what I could find on the...
