| Political Talk|| Who was the last social conservative candidate? - south bama tiger on 11/7/12 at 4:16 pm|
People keep saying that social issues are screwing the Republican party out of winning elections. I'm not saying the R's need to double down or even emphasize social conservatism as they do now, but I fail to see how Romney and R's lost based on social issues.
Romney lost and was a social moderat...

The NBC special on Nicklaus's first major was re-aired on Golf Channel today.

This, while certainly not common today, isn't surprising becau...

These are the two guys brought in to replace Gonzo and Cooper after last season. Obviously they're just position coaches, but which one will prove to be the better hire and affect the team more?

I think most fans like both players and support the both of them because they love LSU. But Americans generally want fairness. Not "socialism" fairness, but fairness based on merit and talent. Most fans here think Lee's body of work is greater than any body of work Jefferson has put forth thus far....
