| Tiger Rant|| Props to Andy Dodd - Ace Midnight on 9/9/14 at 1:33 pm|
On both his performance (not perfect, but it wasn't disastrous, either) and his attitude.
From yesterday's Reveille article:
[quote]When LSU sophomore center Ethan Pocic went down with an injury in the game against Sam Houston State, redshirt freshman Andy Dodd was thrust into the lineup.
| Movie/TV Board|| Spinoff Thread: Best Fictional Sport in M/TV History? - Ace Midnight on 9/2/14 at 9:41 am|
I'm leaning towards rollerball from the film of the same name(1975 version, not 2002).
BASEketball might be second.
I think Dodgeball would be a candidate, because, although not strictly fictional, a professional version is.
Anything else worth considering?...

Very disappointing to see a personal hero - a man who faced down actual discrimination to buy in and espouse this terrible rhetoric.
| Outdoor Board|| Funny Range story from today... - Ace Midnight on 3/2/14 at 6:48 pm|
The range operator asked us to move down because Mrs. Midnight's fire breathing dragon (snubby 627, with full power .357) was too loud.
| Music Board|| Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here - EP or LP? - Ace Midnight on 2/21/14 at 7:56 am|
Okay - getting the obvious out of the way - it was released as and is generally considered an LP. The run time is 21:08 for side 1, and 23:10 for side 2, for a total of 44:08.
So, I am not contesting that - from a technical standpoint, it clearly meets the definition of an LP.
However, an EP ...

Maybe this should be MSB, but:

Computers in 1970 said Marciano, but tha...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Reminder for those who only casually follow recruiting (stargazing) - Ace Midnight on 2/5/14 at 5:19 pm|
Except for JUCO players (we have none in this class currently, and don't project any, barring a last minute surprise), these kids haven't played a down of CFB, and many of them never do. Grades, off-the-field issues, failure to adjust to the speed, a decent percentage either never play at all, or c...

Plus the gets, the good flips/mild surprises all make it possible for me to give an A grade to the staff.

It came up in the recruiting thread that Miles turned 60 in 2013. It is a marker - not necessarily a red flag. I am also taking a positive tone with this thread - for purposes of this discussion I'm assuming that things go well over the next 4 to 6 years.
Of course Miles' health appears pretty ...

not anything that kids who go elsewhere do or do not do.
2003 - great example. Remember Nick Child? I barely do. He was the top rated DB in LSU's class. Jonthan Zenon was the lowest.
