re: TCU CB Jason Verrett: "“I Shut Down…Odell Beckham…” - Tomball Tiger on 4/4/14 at 3:55 pm
Just think if he wouldn't have "held him down" - OBJ may have gone for 200 yards. Oh, and Jarvis may have gone for 200 also. Sure glad Verrett was in that game! (note the dripping sarcasm)... 5 catches for 118 yards, I'd take that anyday and call it success, especially when we kicked their butts....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: 35 Years ago this week the SEC Banner dropped vs Alabama in the Assembly Center - Tomball Tiger on 2/24/14 at 3:32 pm
I was there, and I remember thinking, "kind of early to unfurl a banner with game still going on!?" I was a bit unaware of Bama coach flipping out, as I was going crazy with the rest of the student section and having a blast. I LOVED watching those teams and those games. The excitement in the PMA...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I was part of that bunch rocking the buses until the USC players started unloading from the bus. Man, those dudes were unreal, they were so huge! Much sturdier than our guys at the time. We formed a gauntlet for them to walk through, and we Tiger Baited 'em. Judging from their size, we kept it t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: this criticism of chavis is absolutely absurd (long) - Tomball Tiger on 10/29/13 at 3:52 pm
First of all, it's called The Rant, and that's what we do on this board. I don't like all of it or agree with it often, but I like to hear what others think. That doesn't mean I'm not a good fan.

re: Why The Rant sucks after an LSU loss.... - Tomball Tiger on 10/23/13 at 4:29 pm
Hey, it's called "The Rant" for a reason! We all come onto this board to "rant" about our beloved Tiger sports, in this case now, football. We all have our own thoughts and ideas about the team, so this is the forum to air it out. I don't agree with most posters, but I still enjoy hearing what oth...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Even with our amazing 2014 recruiting class - Tomball Tiger on 10/20/13 at 10:51 am
I'm not amazed by this defensive class we have now. They need to improve as the season goes on and I'm not seeing it. No playmakers. No pass rush, LBs nowhere to be found, DBs inconsistent. We can't make a play to stop on 3rd down! Not sure if that is the coach's calls not allowing them to mak...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Coach Cam explains the concept of playing team offense - Tomball Tiger on 8/15/13 at 3:05 pm
Team offense will also keep our defense off of the field more. We have relied way too much on our defense to hold off opponents week to week. Many of the big games, our defense was playing tired, but valiantly. Time for the offense to convert more 3rd downs, and score TDs vs. field goals. We do ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: What is wrong with the team hitting? - Tomball Tiger on 6/19/13 at 4:45 pm
Baby Sam - I said the same thing after Bregman's AB. We were not going with the pitch and punching the ball to the opposite field. Damn double plays and pop ups/pop flys killed any momentum. I was stunned by the lack of hitting discipline from some of our usually reliable hitters. Just made me i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I haven't watched a CWS game in the past two years. I hate that west coast small ball crap. Sure, it is a way to win in that big ball park with good pitching, but it makes for lousy baseball. Score two unearned runs and you win the game? I watched last night hoping we could put some balls in the...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Yes, Williams was from Hempstead, just a few miles from A&M, and he was not popular in CS with his decision to go to LSU. Great game, and I h...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
