Ok, I'll make the correction. The Tigers were UP by 10, 42 - 32, at the half. Texas outscored LSU 35-27 in the second half. So many teams in college and the NBA give up big leads. Often, the trick is just hanging on. These and other close games serve to toughen up our Tigers. They are winning. Love it!

Texas is not good! Plus they had two starter out due to injury. Watch what Baylor does to UT. They never let UF get back in the game up 16.

This team can not hold a lead. Three losses this year came after a big lead. 5 way to close wins came after a huge lead. Finish the games and you will go far.

Agreed! Good teams don't blow 16 point leads and lose to East Tenn St at home. They have now won the last five games by 4 points or less! Lets not forget Skyler's prayer vs Arkansas!

Big win. Gotta say that UT’s student section made ours look like like Duke.

Now if we can somehow figure out a way to beat teams down the stretch with the lead. Can’t keep letting teams back in the game or eventually it will catch up at some point.

You do realize that tigerdroppings does not give original content right? They simply repost. That’s why they say per lsusports. Larry is a dumb arse but let’s not criticize him thinking he actually writes original content.
