re: Did people's teeth rot out a lot faster back in the olden days?
Posted by Thorny on 9/16 at 9:16 am
I have seen some evidence that the introduction of grains and sugars into the human diet are largely responsible for our bad teeth. People 300 years ago didn't eat as much grain and sugar products as we do, since those things were much more difficult to harvest then. That probably means the overall ...

re: Ever known anyone that was murdered?
Posted by Thorny on 9/4 at 4:03 pm
Daughter of my first cousin was murdered while walking home from the school bus. No witnesses and her body wasn't found for a week. This happened in Florida about 21 years ago. She was 12. There have been lots of rumored leads, but the case has never been solved....

re: What is your opinion about the Playoffs?
Posted by Thorny on 8/27 at 10:18 am
[quote]Everybody tolerated the computers until it finally lead to 2 SEC teams playing for the championship. That was the straw that broke the camel's back. So yeah, the playoffs will be kind of neat but it's definitely not doing the SEC any favors. Don't be mad when a CLEARLY better 1 loss team from...

re: LA players on Bama's roster...this stings..atleast we have Kwon
Posted by Thorny on 8/25 at 6:17 pm
If Bama is starting a true Freshman at left tackle, then their offensive line recruitment in the previous years hasn't been as good as Rivals would lead you to believe. Of all the positions on the field, left tackle is the least likely to see a Freshman starting. I know Robinson is good, but stil...

re: I wonder what higher ups decided this
Posted by Thorny on 8/19 at 4:24 pm
Permanent and rotating rivals have been a part of the SEC schedule since at least the 70s. Until 1987, LSU played Florida, Kentucky, Alabama, Ole Miss and State every year, rotating Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee and Vandy in an 8 year, home-and-home basis for a 6 game league schedule. When the Ear...

re: LSU drumline during offensive plays back in the day? When/why did it stop?
Posted by Thorny on 8/14 at 10:57 am
I was in the band in those days. The drums played on every play, not just passes. The drums playing during plays have been replaced with the 2nd and 3rd down cheers, which didn't exist until the 90s. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: Wonder if ncaa considered going all wood bats like minors and big league?
Posted by Thorny on 4/15 at 10:21 am
Not all wood bats are the same--there's only so much good-bat-quality wood each year. The best bats go to the majors, the next best to the minors. A school that cares about baseball like LSU would get the third tier bats, but smaller schools would get stuck with even worse bats because of the ...

Posted by Thorny on 3/18 at 5:23 pm
Pearl is a very good game coach, but obviously has ethical issues on the recruiting trail. We've seen coaches like this before get right at another school (Sutton & Calipari come to mind). He might be reformed, he might not be. Personally, I'm glad we don't have to deal with those types of issues...

re: LSU football- best a** whoopin we gave to an opponent this past decade.

Va Tech. If that game doesn't happen, Va Tech goes to the BCSNG instead of us. Back in the days when Spurrior was at Florida, I kept wondering when LSU would blow away a legitimately highly ranked opponent like the Gators seemed to do routinely (see the scores he routinely put on Tennessee.) Th...

re: Did the big 12 not having a conference game affect LSU in 2011?
Posted by Thorny on 2/21 at 11:45 am
We lost the narrative from the very beginning, when all the stories of the GOTC focused on how Bama "beat us except for the missed field goals". So the opportunity for a rematch to "make things right" was always going to be there if no other undefeated team was available. The minute OSU missed th...

I recommend "Wheat Belly" by Dr. William Davis. In essence, the wheat cultivated today isn't the same as the wheat of 50 years ago. The timing of the changes to the plant to make it more profitable correspond to increased obesity and diabetes. The changes in the plant itself means that it does ...

I understand the desire for the rich to have their sanctuaries. However, golf had better figure out the proper business model to get average, middle-class people interested without breaking the bank, or it is doomed. Look at all of the closed country clubs around: Sherwood, Fairwood, etc. Th...

[quote]It's not about the play itself per se, it's about neutralizing a tactic that limits player substitutions. By coming to the line, the HUNH is eliminating the ability to rotate players. Few teams are running plays in the 10 seconds discussed. Auburn for instance hurries to the line and then slo...
