| O-T Lounge|| Anybody here got a FitBit? - Slippy on 12/26/14 at 10:22 am|
Wife gave me a Flex for Christmas. Looks pretty cool, and I need something to help me get in shape. But it requires a lot of manual data entry.
So is this thing worth having? Can I shower in it? ...
| O-T Lounge|| Why is smoking still prevalent in the lower socio-economic classes? - Slippy on 12/23/14 at 11:49 am|
Decades ago, everybody smoked. Rich, poor, educated, blue collar. As the dangers of smoking became better known, and society started to reject it, it was the more affluent and educated to started the trend. It eventually crept its way down through the socioeconomic hierarchy.
Now most smokers a...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| The Drew Brees era should be brought to a merciful end. - Slippy on 12/21/14 at 3:18 pm|
He is a fading great. His presence (and his ego) prevents the Saints from developing a young quarterback. The team needs a total overhaul, and it starts at QB.
Draft a QB in the first round. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Why do Shreveport people have such a hard-on for Brandon Harris? - Slippy on 12/19/14 at 6:49 am|
Every single one of you think he's been done a tremendous injustice by Les, that Les is keeping bottled up the greatest QB talent since Sid Luckman, that he would win the Heisman if only allowed to play, and some even go so far as to publicly encourage him to transfer. I have not encountered a sing...

| O-T Lounge|| UNO headed toward closing? The higher ed bubble is getting wobbly.... - Slippy on 12/10/14 at 8:19 am|
Good column by Jarvis DeBerry. I think the end is near for some schools in this state, and it's only a matter of time until some schools close, or must merge with others to survive. Too many piglets at the teat.
| More Sports Board|| What kind of fan base do schools like McNeese, SLU, NSU and Nicholls have? - Slippy on 12/8/14 at 12:26 pm|
Is it enough to economically justify these programs' existence? Seems to me if we are going to have a serious conversation about closing or merging 4-year schools (as happens frequently on the OT), then we need to figure out whether the athletic departments are part of the money problem.
| More Sports Board|| Happy Jesuit gets a shot at title, but select/nonselect split still SUCKS. - Slippy on 12/5/14 at 1:17 pm|
Bunch of whiny ass, insecure, inferior, poor public school principals who are afraid to play the best. Pure and simple. What we have is a watered down product. Everybody gets a trophy.

Trashy? Hey brah? Cheating-ass suburban football factory? Fake religious academy opened because white people in the 60s didn't want their kids going to school with blacks?
Jesuit is playing them tomorrow night. Jays are playing for their first championship in like 50 years.
I will be o...
| Coaching Changes|| I listened to Gary Barnett talk about the "coaching vacancy season" yesterday. - Slippy on 12/3/14 at 10:22 am|
For all those who think this is some noble exercise where men of integrity are true to their schools and their employers, you've got it all wrong.
Once the first coach is fired, the phone lines start lighting up. Guys trying to get their name in the hat for head coaching jobs and assistant jobs,...
| Coaching Changes|| This is how it will go down. - Slippy on 12/3/14 at 10:02 am|
The concern over Miles among the UM insiders, or so it has been reported, is that they don't want egg on their face when Miles publicly flirts and then says no thanks. Miles knows this. Therefore, regardless of whether he stays or goes, it will happen through back channels and very quickly.
| Coaching Changes|| Miles could end this all right now. - Slippy on 12/2/14 at 5:11 pm|
Hoke is fired. News stories linking Les to Michigan are popping up everywhere, and it will only get worse the next few days.
I realize it's a little much to expect him to deny interest today, but every day that goes by makes it that much more likely. If anybody on this board thinks that Jimmy S...

I want to fap at the thought of it.
If (IF) Les leaves, could we get him?...
| Tiger Rant|| The future is bright, but this is still just a game played by kids. - Slippy on 11/30/14 at 8:42 am|
If Alabama beats Missouri and goes to the playoff, there will be 13 other SEC schools who view this season as a failure. It's stupid to get into comparing the levels of failure.... 10-2 vs. 6-6 vs. 4-8, etc. It's all failure. I am as down on Miles as anybody, but am trying to gain some perspecti...

The news media is showing some scenes of the carnage, but mostly they are talking about Michael Brown.
This ceased being about Michael Brown at about 9:00 last night. It's about a mob of criminals causing mayhem. These pictures look like they are from a third world country. Normal America, ca...
| Tiger Rant|| Best analysis of LSU's quarterback situation that I've read. - Slippy on 11/23/14 at 8:38 am|
Of their 11 signees not named Harris or Jennings, the Tigers have had seven quarterbacks dismissed, transfer or not show up on campus. An eighth never played quarterback full-time: Russell Shepard, the No...

according to Ms. Witchwind:
Men are devious cowards and ethically crapulent, they will never, ever attack us directly and loyally. Imagine if men came up to women and instead of pretending to be ‘attracted’ to us (and breaking down our boundaries stage by stage in order to extort a first “yes” — ...
