| SEC Rant|| McCarron: Bad Attitude reports hurt - sbrian3915 on 5/14/14 at 4:38 pm|
It still seems like this guy just doesn't get it. Compare these comments to Manziel. Even JFF is smart enough to speak the company line and "accept" his role as a rookie QB on a team, even though th...

| Tiger Rant|| Asinine "inside information" - sbrian3915 on 5/1/14 at 7:29 am|
I'm sure we all know people who absolutely claim to have the "inside track" on secret information coming out of the LSU Athletic Department. These are the people who say "they have a friend who knows this, and they went to school with someone who knows that" and they are always claiming to know som...

| Olympics Board|| US-Canada 2010 - sbrian3915 on 2/19/14 at 1:37 pm|
Just to remind everyone how 2010 developed:
In the prelims, Canada stomped Norway, but it took a shootout to beat the Swiss, and lost to us. We also dominated Norway and took a comfy 3-1 win over the Swiss.
In the medal round, each side had a close win and a blowout prior to the Gold Medal Ma...
| Olympics Board|| Big Ice vs. NHL Ice - sbrian3915 on 2/11/14 at 11:23 pm|
For whatever its worth:
I've heard the different explanations that players give on the differences between the 200x100 Olympic ice and the 200x85 North American Ice. I've never heard a good one that I fully understood.

I'm beginning to notice that the Seattle fans cannot come up with anything original.
First, the 12th man concept was stolen from Texas A&M, where it dates back to the 1920s.
