Outgoing Mail

In American warfare vernacular, outgoing mail is a term for friendly artillery intended for the enemy. Here at Tigerbait, it's a you tube to get you in the the right mood about the Tiger's whipping their next opponent and just getting out of the office for the weekend. I give you: No Quarter by Led Zeppelin.

Strip away any and all of the animosity of this rivalry and you're left with two teams that can still post an impressive win total and a berth in a new year's day bowl. Ten win seasons and new year's day bowl victories on a consistent basis have as much to do with defining an elite power in college football as winning the national title. Winning the national title is elusive and lucky at best. But continually posting double digit victories announces to everyone that you know how to win and that winning makes you great.

All that said, LSU is doomed this Saturday. All you need to know is in this quote by Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt regarding their biggest threat, Dexter McCluster, "He is electric. He can catch, run it, throw it, hand it off." What?!?!?! Hand it off?!?!?! Holy shit are we DOOOOOOMED.

Ha. Hand it off to whom? Snead so he can throw it to Peterson?

That brilliant quote and its implications aside, this should be a tough game coming down to who really wants it more. So when you strip it all down, lay bare the machinations of each teams playing, the victor will be the one that played with no quarter for anything but winning.
