SEC Week 14 Predictions

Just under the wire … The 4-7 Razorbacks concern me for one reason – passing. No. 22 in the country and No. 2 in the SEC in pass offense against LSU’s No. 76 in the country / No. 11 in the SEC pass defense. But the good news is that Arkansas has the SEC’s worst [...]

SEC Week 13 Recap

Do I want to say much more about LSU getting their cocks handed to them by Ole Miss? Not really. And I’d really appreciate my DVR ignoring future replays of the game on that CBS College Sports channel. But the upside of this total collapse by the Tigers is that others are starting to question [...]

Ole Miss humiliates LSU – the big questions

I can take a loss. They happen. I can also take a disappointing season – they also happen. But what I have a hard time accepting is stupidity. It’s becoming clear that LSU is full of stupidity, and I think it’s on the sideline. There are three big questions that come to mind following LSU’s [...]

SEC Week 13 Predictions

Following the “historic” comeback by LSU against Troy – yes, it still was Troy – the Tigers are at a late-season crossroad. With Ole Miss coming to town this week and a trip to Arkansas set for the day after Thanksgiving, LSU has the opportunity to learn from the Troy game and finish strong, or [...]

SEC Week 12 Recap

I’ve said all I care to about the LSU / Troy game, but I will note my prediction was 42 – 20. So Troy made it closer than I thought, and obviously things unfolded not like I expected – or as they should have. And it was a different defensive back that scored on Jarrett [...]

LSU comeback on Troy – the Tiger offense

OK, so the last bit I feel compelled to add about the “historic” LSU comeback against Troy is how the Tigers managed to come back from 28 down in the middle of the third quarter. The comeback was remarkable in how unremarkable LSU’s offense was in making it happen. Yes, Jarrett Lee made some good [...]

Troy’s offense and the art of stealing signals

I really don’t care to say a whole lot more about LSU’s pathetic game last night against Troy, but the Chicago Tribune gets the headline right: LSU’s big rally holds off … Troy? (tip thanks to extraface). There’s nothing heroic about getting yourself into such a hole against a patsy team that you almost can’t [...]

It was TROY, for fucksake

Admittedly, TigerVision is not the place for deep, rational analysis. But this notion of “the greatest comeback in LSU football history” has to be put to rest real quickly as it relates to the Tigers’ 40-31 win over Troy. We came back and won this game because we were playing Troy. The question is – [...]

SEC Week 12 Predictions

So LSU has Troy “Not Troy State” University coming to town tomorrow. I’m going to assume LSU wins this game. It would speak very poorly of my confidence in the Tigers if I didn’t. But there are definitely things to look for tomorrow night (beyond whether LSU is in purple jerseys). The Trojans put up [...]

SEC Week 11 Recap

Oh where has my enthusiasm for the football season gone? That’s right – it was thrown poorly, caught by a linebacker and run back for a touchdown. Repeatedly. I’m sick of all this talk of LSU’s still having a “pretty good year”. Yeah, nine wins would have been a dream in the mid-1990s, but it’s [...]
