LSU A&M Future Games/Dates/TV Coverage - Obi-Wan Tiger
Have they mentioned who will televise the A&M/LSU Turkey Night game next year? If it's CBS then I have no further questions. If it is ESPN, I have to state/ask the following: I have never been a conspiracy/insert name hates LSU/fire Alleva kind of guy. However, having said that and assuming it...

2000 PGA Woods vs May - What Happened On This Shot? - Obi-Wan Tiger
Believe this was the final hole of the playoff... Any theories? Sure took that ball a long time to come bounding out of there...and especially at that speed. [link=(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEDyD4gQgio)]LINK[/link]...

Jaws on the Big Screen - Obi-Wan Tiger
Cinemark here showing classic movies one night only per week for the next couple of months. Even though I could probably quote the whole thing, seeing it on the big screen again was greatness. The Indianapolis scene is still money. "Martin hates boats...Martin hates the water, sits on the fer...

Why is Reliant's Roof Closed?? - Obi-Wan Tiger
It is 63 degrees and the sun's out. Why spend all those extra millions on a retractable roof when you're not going to have it open on a chamber of commerce type day? It's rarely ever open. Should have just built a normal dome and been done with it....

SEC Going To Nine Conference Games? - Obi-Wan Tiger
Here's hoping LSU drops Towson, N Texas, or Idaho and NOT Washington from next year's schedule. Per SC President http://dailygamecock.com/news/item/2747-pastides-sec-schools-will-now-play-nine-conference-football-games...

Another Scheduling Format Possibility - Obi-Wan Tiger
If SEC goes to 14 teams: No divisions Three common opponents every year, enabling rivalres to stay intact Other ten rotate 5 and 5 every two years Top two play in SEC title game Advantages: Stay with 8 games, which still allows for marquee OOC matchups Get the true top 2 teams playing...

Another BCS Scenario Question re Nighest Ranked Non-BCS Team - Obi-Wan Tiger
I know the Rose Bowl must take the highest ranked Non-BCS team if they lose one of their locked in teams to the BCS title game. But if TCU is the highest ranked non-BCS team and THEY end up in the title game too...ex. Oregon vs TCU...is the Rose still obligated to take the next highest Non-BCS team...

Booth Reviews - Obi-Wan Tiger
Was something wrong with the instant replay besides right at the end of the game? Tolliver's catch wasn't worth a challenge because he didn't gain enough yards to warrant it, but there should have been a booth review at least. Hell, he took 4 steps with the ball and it got jarred loose only when...

BCS Conference vs AQ - Obi-Wan Tiger
I've seen a lot of talk debating these two terms in the last few weeks...since I wasn't sure myself, here is the definitive definition. All 11 FBS conferences are BCS conferences. This is per the BCS website... [link=(http://www.bcsfootball.org/news/story?id=4809755)]LINK[/link] ...

Golf Question - "Old Style Course" - Obi-Wan Tiger
I've been playing golf for about 12 years, but watching the AT&T at Aronimink last week, plus Riviera, Westchester, Colonial and a few others in the past, I keep hearing the term tossed around..."old style course." What exactly is meant by this? I can only assume it means shorter in length but acc...

Randle's 2nd TD - Obi-Wan Tiger
Did CBS replay that more than once? Not that I'm complaining, but I thought it was at least reviewable. I was stunned Nutt didn't call timeout because he appeared to be questioning it on the sideline. I thought it was probably a good call, but wasn't sure that he had total control and his foot do...

SEC ESPN TV Deal Question - Obi-Wan Tiger
Sorry if it's been asked...my understanding was that every SEC conference game AND every SEC home non-conference game not on the network package (assume that means CBS) would be on the ESPN family of networks. Why then, are the Miss St-Auburn game and Miss St-Vandy games being shown on Fox Sports N...

James Harrison play - - NFL Rules That Make No Sense - Obi-Wan Tiger
Why is that play any different from roughing the kicker? The kick is away when the punter is hit, yet the offensive team gets to keep possession. Both are personal fouls, and imo the Harrison play is ten times worse than most roughing the kicker plays where guys just get too close to the kicker wh...

Those Who Defended Our 2008 OOC Schedule - Obi-Wan Tiger
This season should be a lesson. Obviously we have other serious issues to worry about but hypothetically speaking, do the schedule defenders realize that if we had won the SEC championship at 12-1, we would have virtually no shot at the title game with the OOC teams we played? Hell, it's being t...

Defense....The Scheme is Bad, the Fundamentals are Worse - Obi-Wan Tiger
I think 99% of our fans would agree the defensive scheme sucks and has to be changed. That said, even with the shitty scheme, I think it would be less of an issue if we would just execute on the plays where our guys actually were in the right place. Our tackling wouldn't be acceptable in a pee w...
