| Money Talk|| Oil explanation - RidiculousHype on 1/21/15 at 12:02 pm|
I don't think it has to do with the Saudis, Russia, fracking, alt energy, or any of the other conventional explanations.
I think it has to do with the strong dollar.

Got this thing as a wedding gift and it's been sitting in the back of the kitchen cabinet for 8 years. Any good ideas/tips or recipes to use it? Thinking about dusting it off and giving it a try this weekend....
| SEC Rant|| Are any Bama fans concerned.. - RidiculousHype on 1/10/15 at 9:07 am|
..that ever since Saban started his kinder, gentler approach the defense hasn't been as dominant as the 2008-2012 run? Over the last 2 seasons the Bama defense has allowed:
42 to Ohio St.
44 to Auburn
45 to Oklahoma
34 to Auburn
42 to Texas A&M
FWIW, I believe Saban is the best cfb coach ...

is that most of those who use it probably don't know what it's named after.
Anyone else make it a point not to go to gas stations that advertise "We accept Louisiana Purchase" or "We accept EBT"?...

| Gaming Board|| Is there anything like Age of Empires / Empire Earth anymore? - RidiculousHype on 12/28/14 at 7:32 pm|
Basically an empire-building game where you gather resources, build the infrastructure and army and battle it out with others. I'm not big on magic/wizard type games. I'm looking for something like the original Age of Empires in either an app or flash game. Anyone know if it exists?...
| Tiger Rant|| Let's get one thing straight about LSU/Bama - RidiculousHype on 12/1/14 at 9:16 am|
With the new CFP format, losing to Bama cannot and will not ever knock us out of making the final 4 by itself. In 2014 the losses to MSU, Aub, and Ark were what did us in. We win those, the Bama game wouldn't have mattered.
You want proof? As of last week, MSU's only loss was to Bama and they ...

1. Kurt Cobain
2. Zack de la Rocha
3. Mike Shinoda
What I mean is, if you boil their entire body of work down into a 1-sentence message, what would it be?
At heart, what were each of them trying to say?...
| Tiger Rant|| Can LSU get to #4 without winning the West? - RidiculousHype on 11/2/14 at 6:25 pm|
Crazy. Impossible. Don't waste your time with it. These are all things you might say about a scenario in which LSU makes the final 4 without winning the West.
But I'm here to tell you that although unlikely, there is a slight possibility of things breaking just right for LSU to get to #4 bet...

It was released Sept 1991. It influenced a lot of young people into the grunge culture that still exists in some form today. What year is the "sweet spot" of someone's birth that Smells Like Teen Spirit influenced the most?...

[quote]Here are my thoughts on the SEC.
Arkansas and Tennessee may not show much improvement this year, but they are both recruiting well and should be ready to take big steps forward in 2015.
Ole Miss and Miss. St. are similar on paper in that they each have their QB and most of th...

We were in the new south section. It seemed very loud on the last 2 drives but hard for me to compare to other games when we sat in the lower bowl.
Any game it would compare to?...
| Money Talk|| Question for you guys in the oil/gas industry - RidiculousHype on 10/23/14 at 9:17 am|
With oil relatively cheap right now, would you be concerned if you were a shareholder of a company that specialized in frac water management solutions?
And speaking more broadly, are companies that are involved with fracking in any way in jeopardy if oil stays cheap?...

Say Ole Miss wins late/close/controversially, finish undefeated, and beat a 3-loss East champion handily in Atlanta. State finishes 11-1 with a convincing win at Bama.
In that scenario, can you name 3 non-SEC teams that would deserve to get in the playoffs ahead of State? They could end up pl...
