[quote]The SEC has three years remaining on its contract with Hoover through the 2016 tournament. Discussions for a future contract will begin after the 2014 tournament, Hallman said.
"One reason to start early is Hoover wants to continue to make improvements on the facility and they need a plann...
| Tiger Rant|| Prediction--both teams reaching the finals will have a loss - I B Freeman on 6/17/13 at 8:38 am|
All the favorites have a loss. It will be hard to keep UNC or LSU from winning at least one more game after Tuesday. I think NCST beats UCLA. (I would like another shot at UCLA Wednesday.)
MSU or Indiana will have a hard time with OSU or whoever comes out the loser bracket there....
| Tiger Rant|| Small ball baseball=four corners basketball - I B Freeman on 6/17/13 at 7:57 am|
I hate it. You lay down enough bunts and the other team will make an error. It is the toughest defensive play in baseball.
If we played 10 games with UCLA Tigers would win 9 IMHO. They could not have been playing small ball with any other pitcher they have and kept up with us.
That pitcher t...
| Political Talk|| Obama's best moment-- - I B Freeman on 6/16/13 at 5:15 pm|
I wonder just which Obama policy his supporters love the most--
Obamacare that now has supporters looking for cover as the impact is becoming clear and the cost look so daunting? the hundreds of exceptions given to the political friendly companies and unions? the money made by supporters like GE ...
| Tiger Rant|| Pulling for Indiana tonight-- - I B Freeman on 6/15/13 at 5:56 pm|
I watched Louisville last week and they have some very good pitching.
I think that bracket is easier than our bracket. State could win that side now that they have beat the beavers once. Louisville however will be a real problem for everybody if they get in the winners bracket....

One part of it make health insurance for Congress members and their employees much more expensive.
These small slim balls have little concern about what their actions do to you and me but let it cost them some money and OMG! we have to change that!!
Does any doubt now that ObamaCare is a big o...

This morning I read that in Germany there is a tax members of churches pay. To avoid the tax you simply quit the church I suppose. Well it seems in the wake of all the scadals in the Catholic Church many Catholic Germans are not paying this tax. The solution---the Church will now deny you the Holy ...
| Political Talk|| Bomb threats and explosions--coincidence or not? - I B Freeman on 6/11/13 at 1:05 pm|
There sure seems to be a lot of reports of threats in the news today.
Have I grown too cynical because it crossed my mind the government may be behind them to divert criticism of the NSA?
| Political Talk|| Sacrificing liberty for public safety - I B Freeman on 6/11/13 at 8:42 am|
The argument Obama, McCain, Graham and other supporters of the Patriot Act make is that we must give up some liberty--not a defined amount but whatever the President deems necessary--to fight the war on terrorist.
I am quite sure there are supporters of this argument here at TD.

| Tiger Rant|| Best pitched game ever in Alex Box?? - I B Freeman on 6/8/13 at 8:27 am|
Could it have been? Nola was just awesome--his two hitter was the fewest hits allowed in a super regional ever. Gray pitched a great game--loved how the fans gave him an ovation as he left the game.
It was really a special game....
| Political Talk|| "Things have gotten a little out of whack"--I agree - I B Freeman on 6/6/13 at 4:30 pm|
Eric Holder in discussing the investigation of the press thinks things have gotten a "little out of whack". You see he thinks he and Obama can massage and manipulate our freedoms to keep them exactly what they need. They think they may have gone a little overboard and all that is needed is a littl...
| Political Talk|| No money for white house tours but plenty for foreign bribes-- - I B Freeman on 5/31/13 at 8:02 am|
Our role in Middle East Peace negioatations have traditionally been to provide the bribes to both sides to keep them from killing each other. It is STUPID on our part and no President ever acknowledges the bribes. They simply hope for a Nobel Prize or something.
Well Kerry is at it again. He is...

I was blasted a while back for suggesting here that we should quickly spin off the state owned colleges into private entities because they are becoming dinosaurs and will require more and more subsidy to remain open--particularly in the numbers of them we have now.
Bill Gates is investing in onli...

Interesting things to ponder--
What if the CIA had ignored Zemurray and the United Fruit Company's efforts to over throw various Central American dictators---would Castro have ever risen to power? If we hadn't been meddling in the affairs of Central America would Castro have had the support to do...

Two examples of racism yesterday. One from pro golfer answering a question about inviting Tiger over for dine--"we'll serve fried chicken" and the other involves a sitting member of Congress attending a speech by a known proven bigot--Congress John Conyers was at a Farrakhan speech filled with his t...

This stance he and Holder are taking that they knew nothing of IRS abuse of taxpayer and knew nothing of the press wire taps and knew nothing about Benghazi is enough to impeach them.
How does the President of the United States surround himself with such imbeciles? Failure to properly manage gov...

You see Obama needs to fire some people at the IRS but he knows the House will call these people to testify so he needs them to tow the line. Hard to do if he fires them.
No doubt in my mind there people getting "career guidance" this morning--nothing more than bribes in reality. Get fired, tow ...
