| Political Talk|| Obama and Crisis pressers - catholictigerfan on 7/18/14 at 11:06 am|
Maybe it's just me but it seems like Obama sucks at pressers during times of crisis. Last night he mentioned the crisis in passing, this morning he mixes politics into it and doesn't really sound conceded about the 294 people who were murdered by Pro-Russian Militants aided by Russia and Putin.

He won the Author Ash award for courage, now I agree that being openly gay on a football team takes some courage sure, but enough for an award on the ESPYs. This seems like a clear political statement by ESPN. We are supporting equal rights so let's give an openly Gay NFL football player an award.

this is a rare occasion in baseball, it isn't that often that pitcher can strike out 3 batters in a row on the minimum pitches required to do so.

| Tiger Rant|| In the BBCOR bat era what year was LSU's worst offense? - catholictigerfan on 5/11/14 at 7:46 am|
If my memory serves me correctly it was either the 2010 season or the 2011 season when the rules changed. I know we had a decent offense in 2010 and than in 2011 our offense sucked. 2012 we bounced back and played much better. 2013 was one of the greatest teams in LSU baseball history, the offense w...

Dunn calls every single pitch so Dunn likely told the C to make two pitchouts, I highly doubt that CPM told him what to do in that situation. Dunn is obviously smarter than every one on this board when it comes to pitching so yes it was a huge risk but stop blaming CPM. ...

So with 3 weekend series left it seems that about five teams have emerged with a chance to host regionals and also a chance to get a top 8 seed.
