Top 5 finishes 1st 3yrs: 3; Top 5 finishes next 7yrs: 1 - Billy Ray Valentine
How is that not a decline? (No one says it's Nat'l Champion or bust....that's a fallacy.) One BCS game over the past 7 seasons even though the SEC has sent 2 every one of those seasons. (that means other SEC teams are succeeding along side the mighty bama) "but we've got more 9 win seasons B...

How do we know that Mich or any other team ever offered Miles a job? - Billy Ray Valentine
Honestly, I don't know. But I often see on here references to when UM offered Miles the job last time or when Arky offered Miles the job couple yrs ago. I don't remember reading any legitimate sources confirming that Miles was ever offered another HC job....much less multiple. (could be wrong...

how is the state of LSU football now vs when Miles took over? - Billy Ray Valentine
serious question....no flame What do you think the state of the LSU football program is this offseason (if Miles were to leave) vs the state of the program during the offseason that Miles was hired? Better? Worse? About same? expanded reasoning welcomed (obviously the game has changed & th...

what does a win vs aTm really do? - Billy Ray Valentine
(other than bragging rights & maybe a little recruiting help???) keep seeing posts about how we'll beat aTm, etc... Dandy Scott even said that an aTm win & a decent bowl win would be just what the doctor ordered. I know a bunch of folks that feel that same way. Isn't the bigger question abou...

Bama midget - Billy Ray Valentine
Has anyone discussed the bama midget fielding warm-up punts right before 3Q? That was infinitely more entertaining than watching LSU's offense....

If LSU loses to AU (similar fashion to MSU).... - Billy Ray Valentine
...does anyone else feel this team could be looking at a potential 6/7 loss season? If LSU gets smashed in the trenches on both sides like they did against MSU & for 3 quarters vs Wisc, this is a real possibility. Line work does not get fixed overnight. That would mean: MSU- loss AU- loss UF...

Pulling Bouman was not nearly CPM's worst call Sunday - Billy Ray Valentine
It just wasn't. Leaving him in or pulling him were both logical....esp with a full pen. The 2 much worse decisions were: - not going to Broussard in 8th to put out that fire (either after Survance singled or after Grayson grounded out) - pitching to Survance (best hitter) with 1st base open & ...

Galaxy S5 cases - Billy Ray Valentine
Anyone have any experience with wireless charging cases & bases? The S5 seems to be a very nice phone, but the flap you need to open to charge will be a PITA. Any experience with Qi charging cases & the compatible bases (desktop & car)? Do these really work? Do they charge just as fast? TIA...

what is the solution to schedule inequity? (serious question) - Billy Ray Valentine
Miles comment (per DandyDon): [quote]When commenting on the SEC scheduling, Miles said it did not go as he thinks it should. He said it should be straightforward and fair, but instead there is annual inequity.[/quote] Does anyone really know how Miles thinks scheduling should go? Has he ever come...

laptop recommendation for 13 y/o - Billy Ray Valentine
thinking about getting my son a laptop for his 13th bday (currently uses the home PC for school stuff & his mini iPad for internet) My goal is that the laptop becomes useful for his schoolwork and he can put some games on it. Any suggestions? I.e. (at that age)....Mac vs Microsoft? TIA...

racial profiling responsibly - Billy Ray Valentine
As a parent in today's society, is it irresponsible not to teach your children to responsibly racially profile? Should you assume that it takes care of itself through their own experiences? I grew up in inner city NOLA, so it pretty much developed on it's own. But my kids are growing up in wh...

OU-TCU (game time???) - Billy Ray Valentine
can someone explain how game times are determined in the Big XII? I understand SEC. I've been invited to the OU-TCU game on 10/5 and am trying to figure out how the game time slots shake out for Big XII games & what that game time might be. Any help appreciated......

Knock off Rolex watch? - Billy Ray Valentine
any of you ever bought a knock off watch? I've got (what I consider) a nice watch...Tag Carrera that I wear almost every day. But I have become obsessed with the Rolex Milgauss with the green crystal. (I don't know how to post pics) Any of you have experience with buying a knock off Rolex th...

Have you ever seen anything like Stevenson continuing to start? - Billy Ray Valentine
I guess he'll still start, but this is approaching ridiculous. I feel bad for the guy when he comes up to bat he's so overmatched. I'm sure he's trying his best, but he's got to feel the crowd's collective <sigh> when he comes up to bat. He's batting under .190....that's hard to do in college. ...

Enough with the "swinging for the fences" comments - Billy Ray Valentine
LSU hitters were not swinging for the fences last night...except Ibarra's first AB, he was ahead in the count sitting dead red fastball and looking to lift, squared it up & barely reached the warning track. No other player swung for the fence. It's simply not true. Also, calling for a bunt in t...

Official vote count to keep SEC scheduling - Billy Ray Valentine
What was the official vote of each school regarding keeping the current cross-divisional scheduling in place? From what I remember, it was pretty lop-sided against LSU's vote....and a few teams that play a difficult permanent opponent voted to keep it in place....

LSU retired baseball numbers - Billy Ray Valentine
- do you think they should add anyone? - if yes, who? I think they should add 12 & 36 now. Both are pretty much universally thought of as the 2 best players in the history of the program & both are in college HOF. I'm pretty sure currently Skip & McDonald are the only 2 officially retired nu...
