Infiniti Q50 - lsumatt
Anybody buy one of these (replacement for the G37)? I was pretty close to buying one but now not so sure. I have read a lot of good things in terms of performance but have heard some complaints from other message boards: 1. Claims of terrible odor (onions and BO) as if it were straight from seinf...

Lease vs. Buy advice - lsumatt
I have had my 2005 4runner for 9 years. Nothing really wrong with it but I am ready for something new. Been holding out for a while but need new tires badly so I would like to pull the trigger soon.

Best LSU football team performances in a loss - lsumatt
Obviously there are no moral victories, but there have been games LSU played their heart out and lost a tough game to a better team with some bad luck and/or bad calls. I think LSU was a (big) underdog in almost all of these games. (The focus is on the last 15-20 years, because that is what I saw li...

Potential great football finishes that haven't happened - lsumatt
After the Auburn game, I was thinking about some of the great finishes in (college) football that were very unique and the game had a lot of meaning: 1. Kick Six. Auburn returns field goal as time expires 2. The Play. Cal returns kinckoff with several pitches and band in the endzone 3. Flutie h...

Jeff Sagarin Ratings are boderline criminal - lsumatt
I have defended computer rankings for 10 years because they are based on logic and objectivity. There is a formula that isn't based on subjectivity. All of the computer polls make sense, and I can even reproduce the Colley Matrix poll to the decimal. But I quit defending Jeff Sagarin years ago. H...

Script a "well-coached" and "well-played" loss on Saturday - lsumatt
Okay, no loss is acceptable and will suck regardless. But I think we can all agree that Alabama is a great team (maybe the best in the country), that has won 2 straight national titles and playing at HOME. Therefore, LSU could come in well coached, well prepared, play hard and well and still lose ri...

AL CY Young and MVP - Can Detroit finish 1/2 in both? - lsumatt
Cy Young: 1. Scherzer (19-1; 2.73 ERA; 196 SO, 0.91 WHIP) 2. Sanchez (11-7; 2.45 ERA; 152; 1.13 WHIP) MVP: 1. Cabrera (0.356, 126 RBI, 41 HR; 0.447 OBP) 2. Scherzer (19-1; 2.73 ERA; 196 SO, 0.91 WHIP) I think Scherzer and Cabrera should be locks for Cy Young and MVP. I don't they get eit...

Max Scherzer - lsumatt
Does he go 14-0 today? Is he the favorite for the Cy Young? He actually has the 2nd best ERA (3.09) on the team of starters (and Verlander isn't #1). Scherzer has always been pretty hit or miss with the tigers. I am curious if he stays string the 2nd half. I expect Verlander to pick of the slack ...

What is the easiest/cheapest way to buy a book of tickets to the first round of the NCAA tourney (in Austin). They are expensive, but I fully expect the stands to be pretty empty. Should I bite the bullet and pay full price or would I be able to buy cheap off the street or something? ...

NIT or SEC Tourney - easier championship? - lsumatt
SEC Tourney would involve 4 wins, probably 1 against a poor team that doesn't play postseason, 1-2 NIT teams, and 1-2 NCAA tourney teams (including maybe UF or Missouri who are sweet 16 or better caliber). NIT would involve 5 wins against above average (NIT obviously) opponents. I would say SE...

Army/Navy hypothetical - lsumatt
If either would be good enough to compete in a National title (or even BCS game). How would that work logistically since the games were announced last week? Seems farfetched, but anything is possible. And I think navy has gone 9-3 or 10-2 in the last decade or so....

LSU has been ranked in the top 5, 10 straight years - lsumatt
At least some point in the season, LSU has been ranked in the top 5 every year since 2003. Now, I know that it is final rankings that "matter", but it says a lot about a program to be in the top 5 at some point year-in, year-out. Even in the "bad" years like 2008, LSU earned enough respect to make i...

Question about D+ or R+ polls - lsumatt
How are most of the polls conducted by the agencies (I know they vary). Do they (a) Determine an expected breakdown of D/R/I and then adjust their numbers or (b) Randomly sample 1000 people and then report the D/R/I breakdown. It seems like (b) is the much more scientific method. Lot of complaini...

This was a common statement last year, based on an extremely small size )2 playoffs) against obviously good teams.

Well at least for him anyway. It seemed like he worked hard in the off season after a relatively strong finish last year (read Bama, Ole Miss, A&M games).
