How truthful do you find PER to be? - TheSexecutioner
I have seen conflicting opinions on this. Some say that PER doesn't lie. Others say it does. Some say that sometimes it does and other times it doesn't. What does Pelicans Talk think?...

Major Flaw in Basketball Replay Rules - TheSexecutioner
Anybody who just watched the New Mexico game saw how flawed the replay system is. The problem is that possession, but not fouls, can be judged on review. New Mexico grabbed a rebound that Stanford swatted at and knocked out of bounds. Or at least that's what the ref thought. However, upon review, it...

Interesting Article on Benching Players with Foul Trouble - TheSexecutioner
http://theoryclass.wordpress.com/2010/04/27/foul-trouble/ I feel like this applies to this board as it is one of the major gripes I, and others I'm sure, have with Monty. I agree completely with the writer. There are plenty of other articles covering the more advanced factors(e.g. the myth ...

Payton's Inexcusable Timeout Management - TheSexecutioner
Why is he getting a pass on his Miles-esque TO usage? Just because we happened to win? He called a timeout on a play that was automatically reviewable in the first half. One might think he would realize what a fool he was being and turn TO calling duties to somebody with a brain, but nope. S...

NFL Teams Refusing to go for 2 - TheSexecutioner
The league average for 2 pt conversions from 2000-2009 is 47.9%. The mark to beat to make it indifferent to kicking the PAT is ~49%. So almost indifferent as is. However, you have to think that there is huge variance to that success rate based on the team. There is no way that the teams on the o...

Favorite Confederacy of Dunces quotes - TheSexecutioner
Being that A Confederacy of Dunces is the only Pulitzer Prize winning book published by LSU, this thread seems appropriate for this forum. "Already he was polishing a few carefully worded accusations designed to reduce his mother to repentance or, at least, confusion" "Somewhere in Fantasyland...

Playoffs - TheSexecutioner
Who thinks we have a serious chance at making a run for a low playoff seed? It sounds ridiculous, but it isn't impossible considering the 8th seed will probably be around .500 IMO. Obviously OKC, Clips, Spurs, Griz, and Golden State are in. I think it will be pretty unrealistic to expect Denver...

Why does Monty let Aminu shoot? - TheSexecutioner
Aminu should never ever shoot. Ever. There are zero circumstances where it is beneficial for him to take a jumpshot. Even with one second left on the shotclock, I would rather him not shoot just so that he doesn't accidently shoot with 3 seconds. We should just relieve him of ever even having to...

Stepped on a nutria running LSU lakes - TheSexecutioner
Well, almost. I was running the lakes at night, and I came within a couple of inches of stepping on a nutria. I think it was a nutria anyway. It was curled up in a ball but took off towards the water as I came upon us. It freaked me out. Anyway, this got me wondering what other animals inhabi...

MSNBC Is Scared - TheSexecutioner
They just pointed out the election is important because the economy is due to rebound regardless of who is in office, so it will make that party look good. It's actually a really good point, but MSNBC doesn't make a good point. Must be an excuse because they realize Romney has a good chance....

In what order do the current CFB contenders teams get in if they win out? - TheSexecutioner
So let's assume all of the top 10 teams win out(obviously some of them are mutually exclusive such as Bama/LSU/Georgia.) What do you see as the pecking order for getting into the BCSNC? The 4 big undefeated teams all have great schedules and computer scores so anybody who thinks they get jumped wi...

Game was lost on decision to kick the FG there. - TheSexecutioner
Inexcusable to not go for it on 4th there. Now, before all you fools come and talk about how we needed to take the lead, let's rationally look at the only thing that matters. Possible outcomes and how they would pertain to our chance of winning the game. There were basically 4 possible outcomes...

How pathetic is the rule that the clock restarts after a false start/hold? - TheSexecutioner
It is the stupidest thing I have ever seen in my life. All a team has to do is be up in the 4th quarter with the ball. They can false start, run 40 seconds off the clock, false start, run another 40 seconds. No coaches do it because it would be bush league or they are too stupid to figure it ou...
