re: Historical Tiger Stadium/Team Photos.
Posted by Thorny on 10/18 at 8:29 am
From my time in AFROTC in the 80s, we heard about the P-40 under the stadium as well. During that time, the USS Kidd Museum was expanding and it added a P-40. Somehow, we heard that the one on display was the one under the stadium. Even if that is not true, it's a nice legend. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: Which was your favorite regular season? 03,07,or 11
Posted by Thorny on 10/17 at 3:51 pm
03. I was visiting the College Football Hall of Fame during that season. They had the helmets of the top 25 displayed hanging from the ceiling. I took a picture of LSUs helmet at #4, since that was the highest ranking in my lifetime. 11 was great too. I wasn't nervous during any of the regular se...

re: So Joe Alleva is no longer guaranteeing that A&M will be a Saturday Night.
Posted by Thorny on 10/17 at 3:37 pm
[quote]To say that LSU dictates the "day" in this case means one day is Thanksgiving, and the other day is Saturday/Friday. [/quote] I understand, but Friday is not Saturday. So that means LSU has either not had the ability to force games on Saturday or they have agreed to put them on Friday. ...

Posted by Thorny on 10/17 at 2:26 pm
[quote]Joe Alleva never had the power to guarantee a time for the game. Only the day of the game. [/quote] Here is where the inconsistency lies. Every year since expansion brought Arkansas into the league, LSU originally scheduled that home game for Saturday. In about 15 of the last 17 years, ...

[quote]At the worst they could follow the Manziel precedent for 1/2 game suspension against a non-conference opponent and defer that until next season when he is gone and it will not hurt him. [/quote] Or, they could do the Bama thing and ignore it completely. [img]http://i1237.photobucket.com...

Les has two National Championship Game appearances that will always define him more than any other game. The fan base will be divided on which one matters more until he appears in another. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: ESPN: "LSU will finish last in the west."
Posted by Thorny on 10/2 at 2:32 pm
Could we end up last in the SECW? Maybe. We surely will if the defense plays like they did against State. Still, last in the SECW may be a bowl team. I'm not sure any team outside the SECW loses a game to any other team, either from the SECE or OOC. Georgia over Arkansas is the most likely one, ...

re: Serious question for the OT: Is the concept of a soul mate a real thing?
Posted by Thorny on 9/23 at 3:59 pm
I think the term "soulmate" is an excuse for people to get a divorce. You very rarely hear it describe a first marriage, but it comes up a lot when you ask your cheating spouse why he/she is banging someone else. I think each of us is compatible with about 5% of the population of possible mates....

Just remember, he was all in on the supposed Saban "a$$holes with numbers on their helmets" speech hoax prior to the 2002 Bama-LSU game. He wouldn't believe Hawthorne when he said it didn't happen and kept calling Saban names until Nick called in and told him it didn't happen. He's playing to hi...

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 ...
