re: Baseball Recap Request - West Bank Dan on 4/9/17 at 8:48 am
I am not calling for it to come back full swing but it was comical that they showed a LSU fan with a stuffed possum, the video from last year, and the tv dude said it was time to retire the rally possum and then we immediately scored 5 runs in the 9th. Then Newman puts the 7 and 8-hole hitters on 2...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: "You are what your record says you are" - West Bank Dan on 1/2/17 at 8:42 pm
This is why college is better than pro. Every game, drive, play can be a turning point. It is nutty to think Harris doesn't throw the pick vs Wisconsin and the whole season could be different, still have Miles as coach, etc. Guice runs right instead of left and we're in the Sugar Bowl. In the pr...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

For that reason I would be ok watching Coa...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: I have to admit - the Sugar Bowl for this team has me excited - West Bank Dan on 11/14/16 at 5:48 pm
If we win out we go to the Cotton Bowl and Auburn or even Tennessee go to the Sugar. If A&M beats us they go to the Sugar Bowl and we go to Music Cit or CFA Peach. If we lose both we go to Taxslayer or Liberty. Maybe return to Texas Bowl but would be 2nd year in a row. In short, we ain't g...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

Yes, sounds like a line from a corny sports movie but didn't Barbier say to the dugout "DO YOU BELIEVE?!" Then he fouls off like 5 pitches, one of which was like 10 feet to left of the pole. I was like, damn, that would have been huge. Then a few pitches later he hit it nearly to the same spot bu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Peak of your happiness as an LSU fan - West Bank Dan on 4/25/16 at 12:25 pm
Two outs bottom of the 9th, Morris hitting in the 9-hole against the Hurricane closer with like a 1.00 ERA or something. First pitch slapped over the wall and the image of the Miami player face down in the infield crying as Morris circled the bases. I hate Miami and I am pretty sure we were down t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Yes, '05 Peach Bowl, in person with obnoxious Miami friend who wanted to leave by end of third quarter but I wouldn't let him. Some white fullback I didn't know at the time (Hester) seemed to gain ~8 yards every carry. Miami fired their coach after the game. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Last night falls squarely on Cameron's shoulders. - West Bank Dan on 11/8/15 at 2:24 pm
Very few wrinkles, no creativity. No screen passes to RB's to get around their pass rush. Instead of running Fournette 30 times against Syracuse and W. Michigan we should have had Harris throw the ball 2 out of 3 plays no matter the score to develop some confidence and chemistry. We completed 6 p...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Yes, always disappointed to not win championship but last year was particularly tough as we had everything except a 3rd (and 4th starter). Balanced hitting line-up with some power mixed in, good defense, speed in outfield and base paths, ace pitcher, bad haircuts, goofy 'you crazy' gestures after b...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

No disrespect to EMU but Les ought to have the offense run the two minute drill / hurry-up offense on two series no matter what the score or situation. LF7 5 carries for 100+ yards and pull him so he can go 30 times next week vs Florida. Not one but two defensive touchdowns....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I am rooting for each and every receiver who catches the ball, breaks a tackle and gets a first down.

Just play, ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I will sign the petition stating that TQ has a great future in a Tiger uniform. Was stunned to see him play so much as true freshman vs. Wisconsin right out of the shoot. IMO, he passed the "eye test" early - very fluid, good hands, knows how to get open. I imagine him being the Craig Davis go-to...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
