| Money Talk|| Are mortgage brokers a good deal? - elposter on 5/2/14 at 2:12 pm|
I know mortgage brokers are middle men who have to get paid some how. I'm assuming that ultimately it is the borrower who pays for their services even though it may be wrapped up in the loan product and appear that the lender is paying.
Most of the time the idea is to "cut out the middle man" ...
| SEC Rant|| Offseason topic: Worst to first in SEC football? - elposter on 4/9/14 at 5:28 pm|
Besides Auburn 2012 to 2013 what other teams have gone worst to first in SEC history (football)?
I can't think of any off the top of my head.
Also, what is your team's biggest season to season improvement in games won?
A brief look appears to show for Bama it is +5 which happene...

For consistency's sake, use your team's last 10 championships in the AP, Coaches, and/or BCS only since those are recognized by all major sources.
1. 1961 (AP, Coaches)
2. 2011 (AP, Coaches, BCS)
3. 1979 (AP, Coaches)

| SEC Rant|| Clemson @ South Carolina discussion - elposter on 11/26/13 at 4:32 pm|
Who wins this game? To me South Carolina has had a quietly solid season, but I don't think I have watched more than a couple of quarters of them the whole year.
I'm leaning towards Clemson winning this game even though South Carolina is at home favored by 6. Predictions?...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Chattanooga offense - elposter on 11/25/13 at 8:53 am|
I missed the game, but saw the box score indicated Chattanooga was a heavy run team with 35 rushing attempts and only 15 passing attempts.
So, what kind of offense does Chattanooga run? Anything similar to Auburn's offense? Hoping we were able to use that game as a bit of a scrimmage for Aubu...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Preparation for Chattanooga / Auburn - elposter on 11/19/13 at 9:47 am|
Do you think the Alabama coaches are openly practicing for Auburn this week (by openly I mean telling the players we are put in practice / gameplan for Auburn)?
I really believe, Alabama could spend one film session and one practice on Chattanooga and get by. Might not be a pretty win, but I b...
| SEC Rant|| Alabama versus Auburn - Common Opponents - elposter on 11/18/13 at 10:06 am|
With all due respect to Chattanooga, it's basically Iron Bowl week (for the fans at least). With Alabama's thrilling hard fought victory over MSU on Saturday night, we are finally to the point in the season when Auburn and Alabama have played all of their common opponents. This year there were si...

I think it's time to make these official for each team. Let's discuss the best expression for each team so we can have some consistency around here:
Arkansas - Nice Sail (pretty much official already)
MSU - Nice Grind (pretty official)
Some others I've seen and/or some suggestions:
| SEC Rant|| Auburn's Dline is very good. - elposter on 10/7/13 at 10:26 am|
I went to the Auburn-Ole Miss game Saturday and I was impressed with Auburn's Dline, including the freshman Lawson. Auburn has some explosive and disruptive players on the line. The secondary looks good at times and bad at times, but overall better than I expected. If Auburn had better LB play, t...

After the second shall we say less than impressive outing by Alabama's offensive line in the first three games, I am now legitimately concerned about this group. Sure they still have time to get better, but the performance three games in against what should have been an overmatched CSU defensive fr...

From the point of view of opposing fans who have attended games there, is it really loud?
How does it compare to some of the louder SEC stadiums (loudest I have been to are LSU and AU during the Tuberville years when Auburn's defense was sick). Is it loud enough to routinely cause problems for...
| SEC Rant|| Who wins the SC v. UGA game and why? - elposter on 9/4/13 at 4:31 pm|
I have to make a bet on the winner straight up. Is SC going to wreck UGA's shite again this year? I really liked UGA coming into the year and I don't know why I would abandon ship after a close loss on the road to a top 10 team. ...

I did not realize this until reading some Virginia Tech news this morning. And their starting right tackle is also a new starter.
Man their roster looks depleted.
If Alabama doesn't blow this team out, I'm going to be concerned about the season. ...

I know three people in the last two months whose deals have been killed by appraisals coming in 15-20% below the contract price. At the price point of these houses this is 50-80k below the contract price. Two of these sellers had multiple offers within days of being on the market, so the market is...

So, I just changed jobs and need to pick 401k mutual funds.
For a 35 year old that wants to be fairly agressive with mutual fund selection does the following make good enough sense:
S&P 500 Index Fund - 40%
Small/Mid Cap Index Fund - 40%
International Equity Fund - 10%

I think Alabama's RPI is 62 right now and Florida's is 5. If Alabama beats Florida on the road (I realize there is VERY little chance this happens), how far would Alabama likely jump in the RPI?
Chime in RPI experts.

Better to stay in a unhappy, yet relatively peaceful/cordial marriage (i.e., don't really like/love your spouse, but don't hate them either) for the sake of young kids? Or better to split amicably? Are kids always fricked up by divorce?
