| Coaching Changes|| When the dust settles do you keep up with coaching moves? - jonboy on 1/17/15 at 1:50 pm|
Does anyone else do this? I always like to follow certain moves to see who is successful & who isn't. In the past I've kept up with Mike Leach at WSU, Taggert at South Florida & Strong at Texas. No serious analysis just wins and losses.
This year I'll probably keep up with Mike Riley at Nebraska a...
| Money Talk|| Ok MT, how would you handle this situation?re: layoffs - jonboy on 1/16/15 at 9:36 am|
Like many of you I'm an oilfield hand planning for a possible layoff. As of today, I have about 4- 6 months of steady work then after that who knows.(Please don't ask what I do or who I work for it's not relevant). I would be considered a very late headcount reduction candidate. Trust me on that par...
| Tiger Rant|| Thoughts on Les from an old newspaper friend - jonboy on 1/12/15 at 2:00 pm|
I have on old friend who worked in the newspaper business for several decades. When I say "old" I don't mean that we go way back. I mean he's literally old. Like his polyesters are held up by a belt around his waist old. He worked as a reporter briefly but spent just about his entire career on the b...
| Coaching Changes|| The fix was in; Shoop was never coming - jonboy on 1/7/15 at 11:20 pm|
Shoop contacts LSU. In a very public way an "interview" is announced through the media citing "mutual interest". Interest initiated by Shoop not Les. James Franklin throws a hissy fit - probably staged. Les probably knows something is up but [i]has[/i] to go along with it. Almost immediately after ...

Brick Haley: DC at Baylor 1999-2001
Kevin Steele: HC at Baylor 1999-2002
If Haley is named DC, I wonder who will coach linebackers?...
| Tech Board|| Bitdefender question - jonboy on 12/30/14 at 11:36 am|
Has anyone had any issues with it? I installed it a few months ago and my laptop hasn't been "right" since. Slower start up, IE times out constantly, some freezing etc.
Just curious if any one else had similar experiences. I also have hitman pro & malware bytes. Not sure if that makes a difference...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Fitz vs LOB or Greg Jennings vs MIA - jonboy on 12/21/14 at 9:55 am|
I'm basically screwed with TY Hilton in my line up. Leaning towards Jennings.
League championship is looking bleak....

ESPN contract extension until 2021 should keep him out off the rumor list. ...
| Coaching Changes|| If Les does leave this is what Alleva needs to look for - jonboy on 12/10/14 at 1:37 pm|
I hate the thought of Alleva heading up a search based on his history of hiring basketball coaches. However, if he has to I propose three characteristics he needs to look for:
1. Won a championship at some level either as an assistant or head coach. I'm not saying Super Bowl or National Title - ...
| Tiger Rant|| What happened? - jonboy on 10/26/14 at 10:56 am|
I'm out of the country, limited WiFi, no TV, & received a very short text (no data just text) from the states that said LSU 10 -7.Strangely the only site I can pull up is TD. If someone could give me a brief summary I'd appreciate it. fricking love this...I hate ole miss....

Not necessarily an outbreak just an all out panic.
Winner - God. No atheists in foxholes.
Loser - Church. Nobody jumps into a foxhole that might have ebola.
Winner - Masturbation. By default internet porn.
Loser - Sex with strangers. Especially pale emo looking people. Those mofo's will nev...

This isn't just a Les thing. Charlie Strong is making Les look like the master of the universe....
| Tiger Rant|| How much gnashing of teeth & wailing when LSU comes out in the "I"?ETA: A bunch. - jonboy on 10/2/14 at 11:02 pm|
True freshman, on the road, first time starter, huge rivalry, SEC play, season long implications....
Les/Cam aren't going to just go all in Rich Rod spread from the first whistle. I can see a good 3-4 series of I formation, establish the running game, play action pass offense until Harris settles ...

No link a friend of mine just sent me a text. I figured somebody on the Poli board would know.
| Tech Board|| Need some smartphone suggestions - jonboy on 9/25/14 at 8:06 am|
Gents, I need some help. I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm like the sucker on the used car lot when it comes to smartphones. Two years ago I let the weenie at best buy talk me into a Galaxy Nexus. It never really clicked when I asked him about battery life & he said, "oh, its great just make sure it...

| Tiger Rant|| It's really NOT the I formation - jonboy on 9/22/14 at 10:45 pm|
If Les wants to run the I then dammit Les - start running it. Get your arse up to Stanford & learn what a dynamic I formation offense is. Talk to Paul Chryst, Willie Taggert or that goober head at Colorado State that used to be Bama's OC. Hell, look at some old Michigan film from the 70's. Bo was ave...
| Tiger Rant|| The obvious thing: It's all about up front - jonboy on 9/21/14 at 11:33 pm|
The most important group on offense and 2/3rds of our defense were dominated. If last night was an indicator of things to come, at the positions that require the most physical players we could be outmatched on either side of the ball by 5 of our remaining 7 SEC opponents.
Les & company have limited...
| Tiger Rant|| Auburn will not be this uninterested against us - jonboy on 9/18/14 at 9:37 pm|
So get over it. No way they play like this against LSU. Gus & Mrs Gus will get some holy ghost juice & have that team up before, during and promise extras if they win.
