Which do you look forward to most- seeing who your favorite NFL team drafts or which recruits chose your favorite NCAA team?
I'm sure a lot depends on which you like more (NCAA or NFL football), but I've always been a fan of the college football recruiting process more since it's so unpredictable...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| UCLA thinks Coach Cam is "sabatoging" their recruiting process - ClientNumber9 on 2/1/14 at 2:34 pm|
Remember how Cameron ended up on the same flight with Dupre and Young due to bad weather? UCLA fans have gone full blown conspiracy mode.
For a bonus laugh, read the c...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Question about Leonard Fournette's rushing stats - ClientNumber9 on 1/8/14 at 8:50 pm|
I don't want this misconstrued because I just don't follow high school football enough but what I do know from watching Leonard Fournette's highlights is that he's an absolute beast.
My question is this- why the big drop between his junior and senior seasons?
Junior season: 2135 yards and a c...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| If anyone ever questioned what Lewis means to this defense - ClientNumber9 on 1/5/14 at 10:45 am|
They should watch the 2nd half of last night's game. The second Lewis went out after that pass break up, Sweating and White got abused. It was stunning to see how easily Files shredded our secondary after Lewis left. We were an entirely different defensive team. This was by far the best FA signing f...
| Political Talk|| Record number of Americans receiving disability payments - ClientNumber9 on 1/1/14 at 9:53 am|
At close of 2013- nearly 11 million people have been deemed incapable of working. I don't think anyone begrudges actual disabled people from receiving benefits (amputees, severely mentally handicapped, etc.) but the system is so abused.
I have a few friends that process disability claims at my ...

[quote]Whitworth University announced Monday the hiring of Rod Sandberg as its next head football coach to replace John Tully.

| O-T Lounge|| CDC lists the average American's height and weight - ClientNumber9 on 11/27/13 at 11:38 pm|
The average American adult male: 5' 9", 195 pounds with a 40 inch waist.
The average American adult female: 5' 4", 166 pounds with a 37.5 inch waist.
Holy shit, this is depressing. I don't know which is worse- that the average American male is only 5' 9" or that the average American female has...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Jim Harbaugh putting his players at risk - ClientNumber9 on 11/16/13 at 3:51 pm|
Harbaugh knows that without Davis and Reid, the 49ers likely go 6-4. That's would put them in the middle of a log jam to make the playoffs. So he's putting his concussed players at risk. This is Eric Reid's second concussion in 4 weeks and he will be the first player this season to not sit after two...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| New Orleans opened -2 vs. 49ers, up to -3 now - ClientNumber9 on 11/11/13 at 3:12 pm|
I think those that were able to get the Saints -2 are going to make some easy cash. This spread will be between -3.5 and -4.5 by Sunday. If Eric Reid and Vernon Davis don't play the Saints should win by at least 6.

Ugh. The first 200 times I saw it, I was ok with it but now im dreading seeing it all day today....
| O-T Lounge|| Have any of you ever stayed at a Sandals resort? - ClientNumber9 on 11/3/13 at 7:05 am|
If so, what did you think? The wife and I started looking at Caribbean cruises but the all-inclusive resort appealed to us more. Sandals seems pretty legit and though it costs a little more than a cruise, I think you get more.
For around $189 a night per person you get unlimited food from any o...
| More Sports Board|| NFL's primetime games have been awful this year - ClientNumber9 on 10/27/13 at 9:01 pm|
Going back to the beginning of the season, there have been some really awful games. Some of this is a result of two good teams just playing sloppy football but a lot of it is bad scheduling.
I'm tired of watching the Patriots beat the Jets 13-10 or the Steelers vs. the Bengals in a FG kicking co...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Arthur Blank looks like a 1930s Chicago councilman - ClientNumber9 on 10/27/13 at 6:27 pm|
They always show him on the sidelines at least three times during every Falcons game and he always looks like he's going to a business lunch with Al Capone. And for some reason, this luncheon makes him sad.
Disclaimer: yes, I know this is a Saints board. But be honest- at least this is better th...

Check out the video. Trim blond runner jogs by a guy's house, drops a duece in like 10 seconds, pulls her shorts back up (with no wiping) and resumes her run.
| Pelicans Talk|| Big payout if Pelicans win the SW Division - ClientNumber9 on 10/22/13 at 11:02 am|
If the Pelicans can beat out the followng teams-
- then my little $20 wager becomes $500. 25-to-1 odds are pretty damn good considering the Pelicans don't have to win a ring or even have the best record in the conference. Is it likely they win their div...
| Tiger Rant|| Realistic expectations for 2013 Tiger basketball team - ClientNumber9 on 10/14/13 at 6:21 pm|
With huge commits for 2014 and 2015 just announcing, it is critical that LSU play competitive ball this season. Recruiting- especially when the commitments come over a year out- is a fickle game. If LSU finishes in the bottom half of the SEC and the program looks like it's headed in the wrong direct...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Bears best DT (Stephen Paea) inactive vs. the Saints - ClientNumber9 on 10/6/13 at 11:36 am|
Hate to cheer for injuries, but Bears DT stud Stephen Paea is inactive for this game. This comes just 17 hours after Paea stated to the media that he was feeling better and would suit up this Sunday. This will really make life easier for the Saints interior line. I'd imagine that this injury will...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Odds of each NFL team making the playoffs - ClientNumber9 on 10/3/13 at 4:32 pm|
Interesting data analysis here. It says the Saints have a 93.1% chance of making the playoffs. Breaking it down further, here are our seeding odds:
#1 seed- 29%
#4 seed- 6%
#5 seed- 8%
#6 seed- 5%
Only Seattle has a greater chance of making the playoffs, at 97.1%...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| New Orleans opens +1.5 vs. Chicago - ClientNumber9 on 10/1/13 at 5:11 pm|
I like the Saints here by 4-7 points. The weather looks good and Chicago's secondary isn't that sound. Cutler gets wild when pressured and is good for 2-3 bad throws. If we contain Forte and execute on offense, this could get ugly early.
Other lines of note:
[b]St. Louis -13 against Jackson...
| Tiger Rant|| Lack of production from WR3 and TE - ClientNumber9 on 9/24/13 at 2:52 pm|
Going into the Georgia game, ZM has targeted Landry and Beckham almost exclusively. Those two combine for almost 90% of all receiving yards, receptions, targets and receiving touchdowns. Four games in, do you think this is just who we are as a team? Or do you think Cameron has plans for more as we p...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Why Matt Ryan will never be Drew Brees - ClientNumber9 on 9/22/13 at 6:17 pm|
Though this has been played out numerous times, let's look at what's happened twice this season:
Week 1: "Matty Ice" has three chances to score a go ahead TD against the Saints. He comes up short on three straight passing attempts and throws an interception in the end zone. [b]Falcons lose.[/b...

| Tiger Rant|| Does the field get covered during rain storms - ClientNumber9 on 9/20/13 at 8:30 pm|
If it rains heavily before game day? And yes, I'm aware that there is a 15 page weather thread. This question was asked a few times in that thread but no one knew. I'm just wondering if it pours rain ask day Saturday, will they keep it covered until player warmups? Any former or current grounds keep...

Seems like the season just started but we're already 1/4th of the way through it. Damn, it seems the time from the bowl game through summer takes years and the season is over in the blink of an eye. Savor and enjoy these Saturdays, guys. It'll be January before you even know what happened. :bang...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Saints -9 vs. Cardinals - ClientNumber9 on 9/17/13 at 4:26 pm|
Wow, that seems like a pretty high spread for a team that has eeked out two last second wins. I know the game is at home but the Cards aren't awful. They beat a good Detroit team and have weapons on both sides of the ball. I think the Saints win but I don't know they cover. I see a close one but...

Another week, another division game. The win against Atlanta was nice, but now it's time to look ahead to next week. Sunday the Saints travel to Tampa to face the 0-1 Buccaneers who lost a last second heartbreaker thanks to a late hit penalty against Jets QB Geno Smith.
It's too early to identi...
| Tiger Rant|| Anybody remember Torshiro Davis? - ClientNumber9 on 9/8/13 at 9:49 am|
He was the guy that pulled a last minute flip and walked away from his commitment at LSU to go join Texas. If you'll remember, he cited poor morale and a bad atmosphere on the LSU team. Texas told him he'd be an instant contributor at Defensive End and that Austin would be the quickest way for him...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Just placed my wager on the Saints -3 vs. Falcons - ClientNumber9 on 9/4/13 at 3:09 pm|
Sigh. I told myself I wouldn't do this. I usually bet the random oddball NFL or college game that catches my eye and avoid the Saints or LSU because I can't divorce emotions from logic clearly enough to make a rational wager.
Somebody tell me that despite me being a Saints fan, they are still l...
