Why do SEC football schedules remain constant year over year? - LSUtoOmaha
Of course, there are some changes (such as when Texas A&M was added to the mix), but for the most part, it seems like LSU plays Miss. State first, Alabama, Arkansas and Ole Miss towards the end, and the East foes wedged in the middle. I would assume other schools are the same (not just limited to ri...

Did anyone catch halftime of the LSU-NC State game? - LSUtoOmaha
I thought it was cool how they replayed earlier games and had Johnny Jones go into detail discussing the tape and going over what our strategy was, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. These sessions in general seem rare to me, and I wish they would let coaches go more into the Xs and Os ...

The debate was fantastic last night because the moderators shut up - LSUtoOmaha
Fantastic is a relative term. Last night should be what the audience can expect, rather than some miracle. But Cavuto and the other two moderators stuck to specific, and often pragmatic, questions. How many times did we hear, "Carly Fironina was called a horse, what do you have to say to that?" type...

Is Rick Pitino dodging another bullet? - LSUtoOmaha
A week ago, message boards, media pundits, even academic faculty were suggesting that Pitino should be fired by the school for allowing college dorm brothels to operate for his players and recruits. Today, that news seems to have wiped off the front pages. I think Pitino is going to emerge throu...

College football: Time between regular season and most bowl games - LSUtoOmaha
What do you think should be done, if anything about the typical timing between the last regular season game and the bowl match ups? I believe most teams' last games are the weekend of November 28th. Some of the ~55 bowl teams will play 3 weeks after that, which isn't so bad. But what about the fa...

When did MLB start allowing Youtube posts of its content? - LSUtoOmaha
I've seen a number of MLB plays that I could previously not find start to pop up on Youtube recently, and it's great to see the league has finally reached the 21st century. Why did it take so long, what caused the change, and did the previous dumbasses not realize how much money you can make off of ...

Can I start a Health Savings Account for a known upcoming expense? - LSUtoOmaha
Long story short, I likely am going to have a dental procedure that will cost a few thousand dollars, and most of it will not be covered by insurance. I do not have a Health Savings Account. Are there any rules around funding one, and then using it immediately, in order to obtain a tax deduction? ...

Trivia question time - LSUtoOmaha
Debated whether to put this on the OT or the Political Talk board, but I thought this would be the better audience. 1st rule: Don't cheat. 2nd rule: See first. Here is the question: This internationally significant couple were featured on the cover of Time Magazine in 1937 and named "Ma...

Why is TV coverage of golf Majors not comprehensive? - LSUtoOmaha
I would think for instance, some channel (ESPN, network channel, etc) would willingly broadcast the Masters before 2PM on Thursday and Friday. What is the reasoning behind the spotty coverage, especially in the early rounds?...

From the Social Security website: [quote]Among elderly Social Security beneficiaries, 52% of married couples and 74% of unmarried persons receive 50% or more of their income from Social Security.[/quote] In addition to the benefits it provides, this income stream will most likely come to a hal...

Should Ken Gurnick have his MLB Hall of Fame vote revoked? - LSUtoOmaha
For the most recent class, he left off [b]Maddux[/b], Bagwell, Biggio, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, [b]Glavine[/b], Jeff Kent, Piazza, Thomas. And he only voted for one player, Jack Morris, who had a career 3.9 ERA when hitters sucked. [quote]Morris has flaws -- a 3.90 ERA, for example. But h...

Need help understanding baseball rookie contracts - LSUtoOmaha
I understand a large component of a coveted rookie contract is upfront money. Take Kevin Gausman last year for instance, whose contract "includes a 4.32 signing bonus." So as I understand it, Gausman gets $4.32 million unless he violates terms of the agreement. Is this depreciated over the lengt...

Challenging a call in tennis question - LSUtoOmaha
If I am not mistaken, in the Wimbeldon final Sunday, Federer served a ball that was ruled out by the official. Federer challenged, however, and the camera showed the ball was in. Federer got credited with an ace. Are all serve challenges awarded an ace in this scenario? What if the ball went in ...

Why do payment slots exist for each position in the NFL? - LSUtoOmaha

Roth IRA early distribution: Principal subject to 10% tax before 5 years? - LSUtoOmaha
I was told by my online broker that, if you take an early withdrawal of the principal in a Roth IRA, you are subject to a 10 percent penalty unless a certain time period elapsed. Is that correct? I checked the IRS website and saw the five-year amount listed. The internet opinions regarding this ...
