| 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

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?...
| SEC Rant|| Quote your preseason SEC preview - RidiculousHype on 10/29/14 at 1:31 pm|
[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?...

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?...

[quote]Appropriately, Christie used his speech to preview a potential slogan for his 2016 campaign: "It's time to start offending people."
Telling hard truths to the American voter, Christie promised the establishment-friendly crowd, is how he built crossover appeal and won reelection easily in a...

I know, I know, I'm late to the party that is this 2006 masterpiece. But I could not believe how prophetic this movie has turned out to be.

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...

Say a player leaves after his junior year.
The next year he would have been a senior, so you miss him.
The following year he would've been gone anyway, and you at least got to develop the other guys behind him....

Early 2nd quarter, Auburn has the ball at the LSU 9 facing 3rd and 8. Auburn huddles. Then, 3 receivers break from the huddle and sprint to the right, setting up a trips look. The rest of the huddle remains intact for a second. Then the rest of the huddle sprints to the line, with the TE lined up as...
