| Off-Topic Board|| So...I don't normally like country music, but I like Florida/Georgia line - Porker Face on 4/27/13 at 4:21 pm|
I'm not sure why, but I do. Maybe its because most of their songs sounds more "fun Saturday down South" and less "whining about my lost love/dog/tractor"
Any other similar artists I should check out?...
| SEC Rant|| Texas A&M and Johnny Manziel: a contradiction of terms - Porker Face on 4/23/13 at 5:04 pm|
We all know Aggies pride themselves on being friendly and good hosts to visiting fans, etc. This is symbolized by their official greeting: Howdy!
I can say that I very much felt welcomed on my trip to College Station. Aggies are in fact very nice, I will admit that. Most of their fanbase is very...

Does anyone think we can get it this year? I know people coming from as far as OKC

As we all know, what happens in the middle of the week in college baseball is huge. Thus the Hogs winning vs the Lobos in the bottom of the 9th, 2 outs, bases loaded fashion will surely make front page news across the country tomorrow!
The importance of this series cannot be overstated, and it ha...

As some of y'all may know, I visited Baton Rouge and Alex Box Stadium a few weekends ago. I attended the Auburn-LSU game on Friday, a 9-4 LSU win. This thread is an attempt to explain Alex Box to those who have not had the opportunity to visit.

| O-T Lounge|| Am I insane or is Baton Rouge not that bad? - Porker Face on 3/25/13 at 8:18 pm|
Porker Face was recently in Baton Rouge and it was actually ok. Folks seemed nice and food was good. Seemed kind of like suburban Dallas without the a-holes and everything was "geaux" instead of "lone star". This was pleasing to me because Porker Face may be moving to BR so Bacon Queen can go to gr...

being the media darlings they are and being overrated, yet again. Thanks to your way-too-high unearned #6 ranking and the clobbering we have given y'all, the Razorbacks look more impressive sweeping y'all in your home ballpark. If it wasn't for all the constant ass-kissing from the pollsters and ESP...
| SEC Rant|| Which goes deeper in the NCAAT: Missouri or the "flagship hoops school of MO"? - Porker Face on 3/15/13 at 2:44 pm|
Although Missouri (23-9) has reached its ceiling of an elite eight a few times, "the MO hoops flagship" (24-6) is looking to return to national championship glory. IMHO I think the flagship can really go deep in this year's tourney. I personally like the leadership of interim coach Jim Crews and thi...
| SEC Rant|| For Arkansas to play Ark State, there is a vote. For Missouri, its a necessity - Porker Face on 3/15/13 at 1:16 pm|
Missouri fans seem to like making fun of the Arkansas-stAte vote currently going on [link=(http://www.arkansasasubenefit.com/)]here[/link]. But, let's take a step back and look at the big picture.

Just heard University of Missouri is closed tomorrow. I'm certain it isn't because of weather because as Missouri fans always say, Columbia = Fayetteville weather and it's lightly raining here.
I am totally clueless as to why they are closing. Could anyone more familiar help me out? Like I said, ...
