| More Sports Board|| Most Illogical Decision Consistently Made by Sports Coaches? - TheSexecutioner on 9/8/14 at 10:16 pm|
What do you think is the most egregious example of irrational behavior in coaching(of a major sport) that happens frequently?
a) punting on most 4th downs
b) basketball coaches pulling players with early foul trouble
c) pitching "Closer" in the 9th inning regardless of whether there are more es...
| Tiger Rant|| WWYD as Wisconsin Coach? - TheSexecutioner on 9/4/14 at 1:54 pm|
Interesting question I was talking over with a friend. Let's say you were Wisconsin's coach in the LSU game. 4th and 12 from your own 8, 1:35 left, 3 timeouts, and down 4. Rank these 3 options in terms of giving your team the best shot at winning.
a) go for it
c) kneel the ball
| Tiger Rant|| Club Seat Question - TheSexecutioner on 9/3/14 at 4:47 pm|
So a buddy asked if I wanted to go to the game this week with he and his parents in club seats. I was planning on just tailgating and watching the Michigan State-Orego game as I am a huge Sparty fan.
So my question is will club seating have any TVs with the MSU-Oregon game on?...
| Pelicans Talk|| How truthful do you find PER to be? - TheSexecutioner on 5/2/14 at 1:15 pm|
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?...
| More Sports Board|| Major Flaw in Basketball Replay Rules - TheSexecutioner on 3/21/14 at 3:38 pm|
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...
| Pelicans Talk|| Interesting Article on Benching Players with Foul Trouble - TheSexecutioner on 12/30/13 at 11:54 pm|
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 ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Payton's Inexcusable Timeout Management - TheSexecutioner on 11/18/13 at 3:01 pm|
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.

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...

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...

| Pelicans Talk|| Playoffs - TheSexecutioner on 1/12/13 at 1:31 am|
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...
| Pelicans Talk|| Why does Monty let Aminu shoot? - TheSexecutioner on 1/9/13 at 8:40 pm|
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...

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...
| Pelicans Talk|| Rank the Players on the Team - TheSexecutioner on 12/31/12 at 5:16 pm|
When healthy this year. Rank them as current players not prospects. I know there is a lot of debate about who the worst player on our team is so I'm curious to see what HT thinks. I'll start.
| Political Talk|| MSNBC Is Scared - TheSexecutioner on 11/6/12 at 6:51 pm|
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....

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...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Game was lost on decision to kick the FG there. - TheSexecutioner on 9/30/12 at 7:00 pm|
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...
