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...

The LSU / Les Miles TV dramedy continues.... - Billy Ray Valentine
For a few years GG has been a total idiot for criticizing Miles in any fashion. Several other media members have joined in (local & national) & they're crushed as idiots by the Miles gestapo. All the while, more & more traditional Miles loyalists are stating that they can't defend him any more. ...

LSU is in the right bowl - Billy Ray Valentine
Deny it/whine about it all you want. But if you put your bias aside (which is literally impossible for a large segement of LSU fans), you'll see that LSU is in the right bowl. There are six candidates for the top 5 SEC bowls this year. - BCS bowls not an option (2 slots) - Outback Bowl alway...

LSU/SC: potential to be season defining game - Billy Ray Valentine
Anyone else feel like this might be a season defining game? If we somehow discover an offense & roll SC, could be the start of good things. This team just smells of a bad vibe that a nice ass-kicking victory might change. However, if they lay an egg like last wknd (at home no less) then this migh...

Perceived "media love" for USC a disadvantage for LSU? - Billy Ray Valentine

A&M question about standing all game - Billy Ray Valentine
I've been to games @ Kyle & sat (stood) among Aggie fans for the entire game. At the Cotton Bowl, there were a few fights and many verbal altercations b/c Aggie fans would not sit down (even when it was a handful of Aggies among dozens of LSU fans). Perhaps the thought was that it's a neutral site...
