| Political Talk|| How would arming rebels in Syria have stopped ISIS? - mmcgrath on 9/11/14 at 4:25 pm|
McCain wants an apology because he claims to have been right (and Obama wrong) in wanting to arm Syrian rebel groups. I don't get it. Wasn't ISIS a Syrian rebel group? Wasn't the concern that we would be arming Al Qaeda affiliates? :confused:
And while we are at it, if we left 3K troops in Iraq,...

He basically left because the new system calls for a mobile QB, which shouldn't shock too many people.
I am surprise...

I was checking out the Republican platform and while several of the links don't seem to work on gop.com (tried 2 browsers) I did come across this gem of a statement: [quote][b]Making the Internet Family-Friendly[/b]

| Political Talk|| Were the Gitmo Detainees Who Were Released Terrorists or Something Else? - mmcgrath on 6/4/14 at 12:12 pm|
I keep hearing people refer to the Gitmo detainees who were exchanged for Bergdahl as terrorists. However, I am skeptical that we could actually tie them to any specific terrorist attack. They were all clearly members of the Taliban, who was the ruling party of Afghanistan when we attacked. Of cours...
| Tiger Rant|| Can Coach Jones give O'Bryant some rest??? - mmcgrath on 1/7/14 at 11:02 pm|
He played all but 10 seconds of the first half until he drew his second foul with a couple of minutes left. It was clear that with 5+ minutes to go he was gassed.
What happened to playing Odo and Malone as a second unit with Coleman? Does every play have to be run for O'Bryant when he is in ther...

... am I right? I mean clearly those reps are paying dividends now. Letting the backup QB's throw in games against the cupcakes on our schedule would have been a huge mistake.
So we should just go into Furman with the same plan, right? Keeping the starting QB in the game no matter how poorly the...

Just tried to enroll at 9:30 AM EST this morning. Got into a few screens to create an account and when I pressed the last button it went right to a "System unavailable" screen.

What we now know is that he had two prior incidents where he used guns in a very reckless manner. Should any such misuse of a firearm bar you from owning one again? Or perhaps just limit you to one gun and of a limited type?...
| Tiger Rant|| Where would you rank Landry with All Time LSU Receivers? - mmcgrath on 9/6/13 at 7:28 am|
I think that before last season he was ranked below Toliver and Randle (among recent receivers). I think he may rank ahead of them right now and since he may very well be the number one target all year long (and has a stable of QB's and a good OC to get him the ball), this year could be a very speci...

Could we have trouble against a dual QB system? Personally I think it would blow up in their face as LSU only seems to be vulnerable to a smooth passing game.

I kinda dislike any politician who so listens to political advisers that it will shape their policies.
