Another Tiger fan gone too soon - JoBo68
Yesterday I buried my 22 year old tiger fan. He was killed in a car wreck last Thursday morning on his way to work. Blake still lived at home with plans to marry his girlfriend after she graduates from nursing school in a couple of years. He had it all planned out, but God had other plans. I trust H...

re: Article on Guice - JoBo68
I probably know less than you or anyone else so I’m not arguing with you at all but...why did they pick on him? Who did it benefit to let him slide in the draft or to bring his character into question?...

re: Article on Guice - JoBo68
Makes sense to me. I don’t think teams were afraid he was the one guy that could/would call them out and take them down because he “tells it like it is.” Hopefully he’ll put it behind him and thrive in his element....

re: Article on Guice - JoBo68
I agree! I don’t think he’s the first guy to ever “call it like he sees it” in one of those interviews. Probably not the first that didn’t give “Stanford type” answers. I doubt his answers were the first “real” answers they had ever heard and “reality” was more than they could handle. So thi...

re: What's the Rant's thoughts on Jacques Doucet's impression of Hawthorne? - JoBo68
The impression was actually pretty good! Enjoyed what coach had to say about the impression and about Jim. Since I have never been to a game in Tiger Stadium Jim Hawthorne took me to the game on Saturday nights. He was definitely "off" the last few years. It made me laugh and it made me cringe b...

re: What is your earliest recollection of LSU Football? - JoBo68
As a kid tiger fan in Mississippi I remember reading the Jackson news paper. It was my only connection to tiger football back then. I read about Jeff Wickersham and Alan Risher, the Dalton-James gang and others. They are my first real memories of LSU football. I have vague memories of hearing or r...

re: Recruits chasing championships - JoBo68
Perhaps he could get the same level conditioning and certainly can play alongside top level talent at LSU. But I can't argue with you on the others unless it would be position coaching with Raymond. Then I hear people saying he's leaving so... I guess it's really a business as early as going to a...

re: Recruits chasing championships - JoBo68
Yes! A guy that says "I'm going to LSU to beat Saban and win a championship, come go with me" It can be done. LSU has won and can/will again. If not I had fun playing for my school. ...

re: Recruits chasing championships - JoBo68
You are right and I understand that side of it. I've never been recruited for anything and never will be, certainly not as an 18 year old kid hoping to go to the NFL, but my simple mind says I've been an LSU fan all my life and I guess I'd be going there hoping to bring championships back to MY sc...

Recruits chasing championships - JoBo68
I know there's not much reality in this way of thinking but I'd love to hear a recruit be a bad enough dude to choose his school saying "come with me, championships follow me" instead of choosing to play for the latest champion saying "I'm following you to championships." Sure it's just "in the mov...

re: "Doctor 363, Please call your exchange" - JoBo68
I've never been to a game in Tiger stadium but I'm old enough to have started "looking back" at fond memories in my life so...even though I've never heard or seen any of the things posted, I love reading this thread and the posts by all the "old" tiger fans. Thanks guys! Btw, I did get a sneak pe...

He does make frequent mistakes but it can be just laughed off. I think it's kinda like fussing at the refs... If you eve...

re: LSU Spring Practice 2013 - March 15 video via BBI - JoBo68
This may be a dumb question but how do you identify all the players? Are the numbers on their practice jerseys always the same as their game jersey? What about the newcomers?...

re: Bregman-Rhymes-Katz - JoBo68
my memory only reaches back as far as the T Walker days but since then LSU has had many formidable line-ups. it'd be hard to chose which to take to Omaha but it would be fun all over again!...
