...of all time? Despite the glorious endings in both the Georgia and Alabama games the season seems empty with the blown opportunity at the end. Does building a big lead in the BCS title game only to lose it with 13 seconds left make the end of the regular season hollow? I'd ask LSU, Florida, Alabam...

What is the biggest or most dramatic turnaround you've ever had from one side to the other? I shot 42 on the opening 9 at the old University course while in college at Alabama and followed it up with a 30 on the backside.

Watching this on Showtime currently. Named after one of his most underrated songs, it's a documentary of his two week concert tour of Russia in the summer of 1987. It's a fascinating look at life in Cold War Russia at a time when the country was on the verge of revolution. It was cool to see how the...

What a pleasure to watch and what a stark contrast from the s###show that SEC basketball has become. How did it go so wrong in the last 5 to 10 ye...

I can understand teams that have no chance to make the tournament this year like Georgia, Auburn, A&M, USCe, Vandy, Miss State, and Bama not having great fan this year, but LSU has a legit shot of making the big dance and the arena is its typical half full self. Heck, Alabama fans are accused of onl...

I've watched all the major network New Year's Eve specials and haven't seen a single "musical act" play an instrument so far. Do they no longer have any bands playing at the New Year's Eve specials?
P.S. Such great musical "talent" out there these days....

I had a co-worker tell me something that can't be true but I thought I'd ask her just in case. He said that a season ticket for the 2013 Saints was only $250. Is that correct? If that's even close to correct, I may have to jump on tickets for next season. I'm in Mobile and only 2 hours and 15 minute...

It's happened each and every year since Saban has been at Alabama. LSU fans tell us how Terry is telling her LSU friends how much she hates Tuscaloosa and how it's a matter if when and not of that they end their misery in Tuscaloosa. Let's review:
In 2007 LSU fans were convinced Saban was trying ...

Big Ten basketball over the last 5 years has become what SEC football has over the last decade minus the national titles.
