re: LSU's natural recruiting advantage - TigerCard
I don't think anyone would argue that we can fulfill all our needs with Louisiana players. Of course we need to go OOS for great players or to fill in holes in our depth chart. (Even there, however, we have a geographical advantage, with Texas right next door and with talent-rich states like Georg...

LSU's natural recruiting advantage - TigerCard
The statistics in this article really confirm the often-stated belief that we have one of the best (if not THE best) recruiting situations in the country. Enjoy.... [link=(http://www.sportsonearth.com/article/162885450/lsu-tigers-recruiting-louisiana-les-miles?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=ne...

re: How good is Etling? - TigerCard
[quote]I'm not trying to be a dick, but he had to transfer from Purdue because he couldn't win the job.[/quote] Well, for the sake of argument, Jake Coker couldn't win the job at FSU, and he turned out OK. Sometimes it just takes a different environment. And sometimes it just takes some QBs lon...

re: Miles on Cam coming down to the field - TigerCard
[quote]I can see where battling cancer might not allow you to stand for 4 hours out there. Just a hunch though, never went through it, but the family members that have had zero energy.[/quote] In the Advocate article, Les or Cam said that they had discussed the move earlier in the year, but that ...

re: Frank's not happy with Eason visiting Florida - TigerCard
[quote]Give the guy a break......he is making one of the most important decisions of his life on where to play ball for the next 4 years. Im sure he just wants to make sure he chooses the best school for him.[/quote] I agree. And I'm not surprised he's upset about Eason visting UF. And it doesn...

re: Pete Fiutak is smoking crack!!! - TigerCard
[quote]I wouldn't put any stock into what that guy says anymore. There was a time when i thought he was the only guy that "Gets it" and I still like the way they do their poll but he has gotten to the point where he seems to favor being controversial over being logical and that makes him end up look...

re: The Official Bradley Dale Peveto Special Teams Thread - TigerCard
[quote]He won't be fired. Not Les' style. Plus, who we realistically getting at this point? He won't be here next year though.[/quote] I would agree with this. Les will never embarrass one of his coaches in public, nor will he ever openly fire a coach. If Les wants Peveto gone (and this migh...

re: Stadium atmosphere - TigerCard
I would generally agree. I wasn't in town for the '14 Ole Miss game, so can't compare that. The two craziest games I've attended were '79 USC and '12 Bama. Last night was great, but perhaps a slight bit less intense than those two....

Great article on Fournette by Ivan Maisel - TigerCard
Maisel compares Founette to LeBron, Bryce Harper, and others because of his desire to not just be better than everyone else, but to be the best he can be. [link=(http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/13817380/lsu-leonard-fournette-lebron-best-kind-different)]LINK[/link] Sorry if this ...

re: ESPN already doing their part to make LSU's canceled game an issue - TigerCard
Who cares?! If we take care of business, we'll be on top. If we don't, well...we won't. Bottom line: It...does...not....matter where we are in the polls right now. (If we were ranked 18th with a so-so schedule, yeah, it might matter, but with our schedule, if we win, we won't have to worry about...

re: Harris has the same issue Jamarcus had his first year - TigerCard
[quote]Can't just enjoy a win without being negative? [/quote] Well, I wouldn't say that pointing out areas in which a young player can improve is necessarily being negative. I don't think anyone could argue that Harris is not playing well, and the OP did NOT say or imply that. I'm sure that bo...

re: Visiting BR & LSU, please help a Tiger fan out - TigerCard
I doubt you could get within a country mile of football practice, but if you're interested, you could catch some of the Tiger Band practice Wednesday afternoon. (Don't know exactly what time they start, but they should be going strong around 4:00 or so. You can call the band office for details abo...

re: Interesting "Rumor" (Bama and LSU Related) - TigerCard
[quote]He isn't doing it to 'hurt' LSU, he is over it and everyone else should be too...he is doing it to get the best players he can at Alabama. [/quote] Well, I would agree that he isn't recruiting LA kids out of spite. But by signing a LA kid, he both gains a good player AND keeps that kid f...

re: I would love to see some DL commits soon - TigerCard
I've also noted that this class is notably thin on DL recruits. I wonder if the staff is perhaps confident that all those DL underclassmen that didn't contribute this year will be ready to go next season. If so, that might mean that they haven't put a priority on DL for this year's class. Thought...

re: Les Miles' recent bowl record - a little perspective - TigerCard
[quote]you should buy it. CFB is a multi billion dollar industry nowadays. No, I wasn't around in the 60's, but I think it's fair to say there is more pressure to win when you have coaches making 3-7 million dollars a year and coordinators are getting close to 2M [/quote] By your logic, there wa...

re: Les Miles' recent bowl record - a little perspective - TigerCard
[quote]So Bear's 'incredibly successful' is on par with Miles' 'incredibly successful'? it's unfair to Miles to even have this discussion. [/quote] Sigh....please go back and read the third paragraph of my original post. I emphatically said that I was NOT suggesting that Les was the equal of...

re: Les Miles' recent bowl record - a little perspective - TigerCard
[quote]Looks like almost all Bears bowl losses was in Nc games or the next best bowl. Not mediocore bowls like Miles has been. Nice try though! [/quote] I thought this would come up, and I considered addressing it in my original post, but didn't want to make it too long. Yes, there were fewer bo...

re: Les Miles' recent bowl record - a little perspective - TigerCard
[quote]OP is right ... LSU vs. ND was viewed by the masses as an even contest that really could go either way.[/quote] Of course we were favored, but we're not the first favored team to lose a bowl game. (Talk to Bama about the 2008 Sugar Bowl loss to Utah.) And I'm sure Bear lost some games he...
