| More Sports Board|| Which viewing option are you taking for the OSU-Oregon game tonight? - OldManRiver on 1/12/15 at 4:10 pm|
I'm thinking of watching the ESPN Classic channel that just has the sounds of the game with no announcers. I can always flip back over to regular ESPN if something happens that I need to hear some explanation about
The ESPN2 Film Room sounds pretty cool too, but I often find that having current ...
| Coaching Changes|| I don't see how the assistants are a big sticking point - OldManRiver on 1/7/15 at 11:53 pm|
Chavis just got hired and didn't bring anybody with him. Muschamp was the only hire at Auburn. And it looks like Durkin won't bring anybody from Florida, as the current DC at Michigan is staying around to coach DL and Harbaguh is filling the rest of the staff with some Niners guys and others.

In my standard scoring Yahoo league, he's got 3 straight weeks of 30+ points. Hopefully the steelers stay in contention and I can ride him to a championship :bow: :bow:...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Rivers has fallen off a cliff - OldManRiver on 11/23/14 at 4:08 pm|
Was giving me roughly 22 points a game the first 8 weeks. Last 3 weeks a .8, 11, and .7 so far today. He's got to be hurt and just keeping it quiet
| Tiger Rant|| Where does the pressure for Les to improve come from? - OldManRiver on 11/16/14 at 4:33 pm|
He's locked in with a golden parachute type contract that gives the school no power to exert pressure. The TAF donors could get pissed, but in the current climate will they be willing to put up all the money that would be required to push him out? The fans can stay home, but unless season ticket a...

| Tiger Rant|| If we're going to be a run only team, why not try and be creative with it? - OldManRiver on 11/10/14 at 3:28 pm|
So I'm completely on board with the idea that Miles is emotionally scarred from '08 and will never throw the ball again outside of having an all NFL starting-caliber backfield. I'd love to have a true balanced offense, but it's just not going to happen and frankly if we can generate offense and be ...

I can't imagine they would do it on either homecoming or Bama, so I'm assuming it's happening this weekend. I checked LSUSports.net and didn't see anything on the parking page....
| Tiger Rant|| For anybody who has seen KY play, is Towles really a threat to run? - OldManRiver on 10/14/14 at 5:36 pm|
I've read a couple of previews mentioning how Towles is a big, physical runner who provides a dual threat presence. Then I see his stats on the year are 60 carries for 119 yards and 1 TD. I don't get how a guy averaging 1.9 yards a carry is a big threat on the ground, unless they use him exclusive...

MIL recently passed away, so the wife and I are now in the process of selling her house. It's in pretty decent shape overall, but the flooring is completely shot. She didn't have a lot of money, so when she moved in she covered existing linoleum with a peel & stick tile which has since started to ...

Going up for Mardi Gras. Trying to find some places that will offer a nicer/different experience than I get here in BR, yet still be palatable to an 8 and 10 year old that are fairly picky eaters. Googling has led me to lots of places that have kids menus but are very pedestrian, or interesting pl...
