I figured with all the speculation, why not let NFL.com in on it a little.

Dural played some, so we must assume the staff is hot on him (6 catches).
Leslie also caught a pass, and he will be a senior next year (JUCO).
D'quille notwithstanding, Avery Peterson, Diarse and Kevin Spears all look to fill the gap, assuming Landry and Beckham follow their QB to the NFL.

Anybody done it?
Can good results be achieved with just a drill press, standard jigs and a few specialty bits?
How much easier and faster is it to use a lathe? Is it enough to justify the cost?
Any recommended jig sets? And recommended 80% lower sources?
I'm a pretty handy guy, but I h...

My dad, Pops Midnight, passed away on Memorial Day this year. There was nothing left on the airframe that was good, and he had developed dementia (likely Alzheimers in late 2010 or early 2011.) He suffered a bad fall at the nursing home, developed an infection, his kidneys shut down, and that was ...

We are at the mid-point of 2013. Assuming LSU has no problems with Furman, and takes 3/5 of the remaining conference games, that is a 9-3 regular season, and a likely mid-tier bowl. With Les' recent history, I can't assume the bowl win, but I spot him that.
So, it looks like a 10-win season, an...

Let's break it down:
They lost their bowl game, although closely, to a mediocre Michigan State. We lost a game we shouldn't have to a Clemson team that was better than Michigan State. As we both lost, I call that a push.
Let's look at K-State, Texas Tech and Oklahoma. TCU lost all three of ...
