Having been away from BR for a few years now, I have read that the school/EBR have made attempts to improve the traffic flow after games. Has anyone noticed a marked difference in the traffic patters/time to get to I-10, I-12 etc.?
Early departures from these games being taken into consideration....

So my RB situation is screwed. Got proposed a trade Montee Ball for either Jordy or Julio. I am pretty strong at WR so I can part. Both were keepers for me and both will have to be released back into the draft pool after next year so I have no attachment to either.
Which of the two should I send ...

Count Mexidracula and a Turkish fellow have been assigned the semi-finals. Is there any way Geiger can get a finals or consolation assignment? Best case scenario is is a UEFA vs Conmebol final and semi as this would *in theory* remove those confederation's officials. However this is FIFA so..... We'...

So as a favor to a friend I met with his buddy from Northwestern Mutual. I got the typical shpiel but the only two things that interested me were locking in life insurance at a young and healthy age, and a cash value (CV) account (starting it now, but focusing on it as I get older).
I'm not too s...

| Tiger Rant|| How long between games in the SEC Tourney? - SM6 on 5/22/14 at 2:28 pm|
How long do teams have to take the field/ warm up between games? 30 min?
I am hoping that Akry-Fla runs a little late so that I can get home in time for first pitch.
| Tiger Rant|| Who is pitching today? - SM6 on 5/17/14 at 10:14 am|
And how does it set up for the SEC tourney? Assuming we win and get 4th seed, Poche and Nola on six days rest? Kitchen sink after that?
I really hope we host a regional. Not having a 3rd starter is a bitch if we have to throw Nola in game one versus the 3 seed.
