re: What do you think of the OL tonight? - TigerCard
Getting better, but they still have a long way to go. Ole Miss is bad against the run, and that helps. Pass blocking still bad, and that will hurt against Bama. ...

re: Yes, people noticed the sparse crowd - TigerCard
"Where the HIGH temperature yesterday was 78 degrees. You need to just STFU about fans opting out of paying out the arse for parking and concessions in order to sit in the sun with 110 degree heat index for 4 hours while CBS drags a 60 minute game out. What an AH." And you need to read my other po...

re: Yes, people noticed the sparse crowd - TigerCard
That's great to see. I wish Alleva would push CBS to show shots like this from time to time during a day game when the sun is blazing hot. Like it or not, visual impressions matter, and what people saw was lots of empty seats. (The article I quoted just proves the point.) Most people just have n...

re: Yes, people noticed the sparse crowd - TigerCard
[quote]I sat next to a couple of Detroit fans at the Saints game today. They went to the LSU game yesterday and said it was the best football experience they have ever had. They said Michigan and Ohio State games don't compare. So small crowd size or not, Death Valley still has it.[/quote] That's...

re: Yes, people noticed the sparse crowd - TigerCard
[quote]Tigercard, did you go to the game?[/quote] Well, considering that I live in Cleveland, no I wasn't at the game. But for what it's worth, I was pacing back and forth in front of my TV the entire time and scaring my wife and daughters anytime we did something good. When I was at LSU (78-81...

Yes, people noticed the sparse crowd - TigerCard
I know this topic has been discussed ad nauseam, but I read this on ESPN's recap of the game, and thought it was worth sharing. It's really kind of embarrassing that the small size of the crowd was considered worthy of mention. "Arden Key's sack of Jarrett Stidham with 2 seconds left squelched A...

re: Syracuse quarterback's acting job - TigerCard
[quote]Not only that, it was a pretty obvious flop when Chaisson was flagged for roughing tPasser. Chaisson barely bumped him and he dropped like a sack of potatoes (after he saw the result of the pass, conveniently). K'lavon hit him, but that was not RTP, not by a long shot. [/quote] I thought ...

re: In perspective - TigerCard
[quote]we were playing Florida in both of those games, not Mississippi State [/quote] I've been seeing a lot of this kind of thinking on the board. People just can't get their heads around the idea that this MSU team might be pretty damn good. Just because historically they haven't been a powe...
