| Money Talk|| Would you agree with this "stock advice"? - RidiculousHype on 9/18/14 at 11:39 am|
For the last couple of years I've tried to learn all I can about the stock market and make good decisions with my investments. I'm just starting, but here's what I "think" I've learned over that time. Tell me what you think.
1) Disregard the mass media financial advice. If Jim Cramer and CNBC ...
| Political Talk|| In defense of money - RidiculousHype on 9/16/14 at 12:32 pm|
On the way to work yesterday morning, I heard Mike & Mike ask the rhetorical question "Is the NFL about anything other than making money?" Their point being, the NFL needs to stand for something other than money.
I say they go hand in hand. If the NFL allows its players to abuse women & children...
| O-T Lounge|| Louisiana and community planning - RidiculousHype on 9/9/14 at 10:00 am|
For those like me who were born and raised in Louisiana, do you think our planning/zoning is holding us back as a state? When I travel to Texas, Georgia, Florida, etc. I see these massive planned communities and zoned areas with nice highways and infrastructure that just makes sense, and I'm always...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Need help with a Bobby Hebert memory - RidiculousHype on 9/8/14 at 7:52 am|
What year/game was it when Bobby Hebert, playing for Atlanta, ran around celebrating a TD against the Saints with his arms stretched out sideways like an airplane? My memory tells me it was a night playoff game in the Georgia Dome, but Pro Football Reference is not backing me up on this. Anyone kn...
| SEC Rant|| Sumlin's system is outstanding and the rest of the SEC will have to adjust - RidiculousHype on 8/29/14 at 8:57 am|
It is the perfect college passing offense and with all the young talent they have it will only get better.
LSU's defense has matched up very well against it because of our speed and our DB's don't allow much separation. Pass rush is really irrelevant against it as Jesse Palmer pointed out la...
| Political Talk|| I thought I was in a time warp yesterday - RidiculousHype on 8/26/14 at 12:39 pm|
Was in a place that had CNN on, and the headline read "U.S. weighing airstrikes in Syria".
I thought we went through this last spring? Only difference now is we'd be bombing on the same side as Assad, when in the spring John Kerry wagged his finger and said it was a certainty that bad things w...
| O-T Lounge|| Schumaker Homes in BR? - RidiculousHype on 8/24/14 at 9:39 am|
I know Franktowntiger works there but has anyone built with them? Good experience or not? If I'm not mistaken they built some homes in Green Trails, any other places in BR where I can see their work?
And look I'd love to stay local but we are on a budget. TIA...
| SEC Rant|| Bama and A&M's freshman classes - RidiculousHype on 8/20/14 at 8:36 am|
This LSU freshman class may be the best in school history, and the word out of camp is this bunch is even better than expected.
Which got me to thinking, the Bama and A&M classes were ranked right there with LSU's by the recruiting services. Is there the same kind of optimism coming from camp ...
| SEC Rant|| How about Mullen on the mic'd up segment? - RidiculousHype on 8/16/14 at 5:18 pm|
Just watching, not saying much. It goes with my theory that HC's do a lot of delegating and overseeing rather than coaching the technical points of the game.
Still, would have figured he'd say some more just for TV....
| SEC Rant|| Ohio State is getting dominated on the SEC Network - RidiculousHype on 8/16/14 at 3:06 pm|
First Florida, now LSU. And then they just read the stat they the Buckeyes are 0-9 vs. the SEC in bowl games :lol:...

Since the other Williams thread got anchored (:casty:) here are some [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3vfHJlhixI)]highlights[/link] of Darrel Williams running last year at John Ehret.
He reminds me of Toefield when he was 100%.
Williams is under the radar but will have a great career at...
| SEC Rant|| LSU-Mizzou 2013: Who wins and why? - RidiculousHype on 8/1/14 at 11:43 pm|
This came up on another thread and I thought it was interesting. First let's look at the common opponents:
Ole Miss 27, LSU 24 (Oxford)
Missouri 24, Ole Miss 10 (Oxford)
LSU 35, Auburn 21 (Baton Rouge)
Auburn 59, Missouri 42 (Atlanta)
| Help Board|| Ad with music just popped up on the Rant (?) - RidiculousHype on 7/22/14 at 10:46 pm|
Some ad with a couple NFL players popped up, not in a new tab or window, just right over top of the Rant a minute ago. Blasting some bad music too. If there is a place to vote against those from happening again count me in....
| SEC Rant|| Was talking with my Auburn buddy today.. - RidiculousHype on 7/20/14 at 11:29 pm|
He said LSU hates Auburn more than Auburn hates LSU. His theory is that lately, Auburn has won close/controversial games over LSU but the opposite hasn't really happened. He mentioned the 2004 & 2006 officiating controversies, as well as Tuberville and the cigars in 1999 (which I think started it ...

How do you do this? Is it even possible in most cases?...
| Movie/TV Board|| Everybody Loves Raymond - RidiculousHype on 7/20/14 at 10:10 pm|
As time goes by I have grown to appreciate this show more and more. It may be because I've gotten older, got married and had kids and can relate better. It seems like every scene is spot on. The actors' deliveries are pitch perfect. The interaction between Ray and his dad when they paint the hou...
| Tiger Rant|| Sell me on our defensive front - RidiculousHype on 7/12/14 at 9:12 pm|
I like that we return Rasco and Hunter at DE. With those guys rushing the passer and our lockdown CB's we should be tough to pass against. My main concern is the run defense. We were softer against the run last year than we had been in the past, and this seems to be our main question mark this year....
| Political Talk|| What happened to Hartford, Connecticut? - RidiculousHype on 7/12/14 at 12:39 am|
After the Civil War, Hartford was the wealthiest city in America. Mark Twain in 1868 wrote of Hartford "Of all the beautiful towns it has been my fortune to see this is the chief."
The Hartford population increased with every census from 1790-1950. Things were going great for Hartford. It wa...
| SEC Rant|| Observations after reading the SEC previews - RidiculousHype on 7/11/14 at 4:49 pm|
Got a chance to finally start looking into what teams have coming back. 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 ...
