Anyone Remember Those Saints-Jax Beer Commercials from 1967-69? - timlan2057
They had a real upbeat, jazzy, brass-band rendition of the Jax theme song, "Something Mellow's Brewin' Here," and very well-spliced Saints footage, given the primitive technology of the time. I've searched Youtube and can't find them. I'd really love to have a vid of those....

Along with the Aranda hire, If Cam remains on the sidelines ... - timlan2057
I'll consider that a "new" OC hire. Les is doing what he has to do. That's great. He's brought excitement and anticipation back for next season. Had the staff remained the same, I would have perceived next season as Les's "lame duck" year. But Aranda is young, talented, and upcoming and...

Who is the "joke" candidate for DC THIS year? - timlan2057
Remember last year it was Steele? We were considering all the candidates, slavering over the big names, then someone would post, "Ah, Miles will probably hire Steele." Then we'd all laugh like crazy, knowing that would NEVER happen ... then the melt when Miles did just that. Who will we jok...

Match Day 12/13 - timlan2057
We seem a step slow from the get-go. Not surprising after that huge midweek CL win. We should leave here with three, but this will not be a cakewalk. COYG!...

Trivia: Raiders' Punter Before Ray Guy? - timlan2057
Seeing Ray Guy hand out his namesake award last night prompted this. The Raiders' punter before Guy was pretty good himself. What was his name? I'll leave it to the honors system, since so many honorable people post here. :lol: First correct answer without consulting the internet gets ...

How Ugly Will the Anti-Miles Backlash Get Next Season? - timlan2057
So far, the immediate reaction to the hiring-firing fiasco from the fanbase, donors, alumni, etc. has been passive and resigned acceptance. Anger seems to be sprouting in the days after, especially since Miles has essentially given the finger to administration/fans as a whole with his statements ...

That ESPN Commercial with the NC Trophy in the Tiger Eye ... - timlan2057
Was it just a month or so ago we were all talking about what a great commercial that was? It sure got lame, irrelevant, and embarrassing once November got here, didn't it? Ah well. I thought I'd emulate many here and start a thread for the first thought that popped in my head. :lol:...

Wow. Saban chewed Number 7's arse out for that block in the back. (LSU Related) - timlan2057

When EWE had a chance to interfere with LSU Firing a Football Coach - timlan2057
Regarding firing Jerry Stovall in 1983, Bob Brodhead was called into a meeting with Edwin Edwards: [i]Before the Board meeting, Wharton and Board member Sheldon Beychok met with Governor-elect Edwin Edwards to apprise him of my pending recommendation. Not knowing how adverse public reaction might...

"It Would Have Been Mean-Spirited"-- I like Brodhead's Take - timlan2057
So Joe Alleva--or Joe Alleva overruled by Fking Alexander: likely caved into media pressure and determined that after the outpouring of Les sympathy--much of it from fans not hollering for his retention, but just being polite--they must retain him. Bob Brodhead could have been deemed "mean spirit...

Did Alexander Step in and Over-rule Alleva at the last minute? - timlan2057
Alexander told Les, "you'll be our coach" in the third quarter. Was Fking the one who lost his nerve about firing Miles unconditionally and heading into the uncharted waters of a coaching search? That could explain even more why Alleva looked so miserable at the press conference, gritting his ...

Joe Alleva's Athletic Department - timlan2057
The pumpers and the realists are not united, but everyone wants Alleva gone. :lol: Do you want to contact the LSU athletic department? Good luck. After years of never being able to talk to a live person and having my emails unanswered, I experimented. At least three times over the yea...

Like ... "don't worry about it, son!" ... sums up the entire lackadaisical, "who cares?" approach of Les Miles and his staff. But hey, we got our #zany #goodfamilyman coach. I admit those of us who believed a change was necessary got our asses kicked last night. Congrats to the pumpers. A...

I Confess: I Flipped Tonight - timlan2057
I flipped seeing BDP pat Keehn on the shoulder after his umpteenth shanked punt like, "aw, don't worry about it, son!" That summed up the entire lax, undisciplined, "who cares?" approach of Les Miles's coaching staff. I'm glad the players love Les. I'm ready for a coach who can put the fear ...

Brodhead-Stovall: Anatomy of a Coach Firing - timlan2057
I found the timeline interesting. Wonder how many parallels there are to Alleva-Miles? The excerpts are from Brodhead's book,[i] Sacked[/i]. [i]When Stovall called me at my home in Florida to express his views on my "we will win immediately" remarks to the Board of Supervisors, I knew there would...

Yammering about Les's "10 Win Seasons"? Compare non-conference opponents. - timlan2057
[link=(http://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/schedules/lsu-games/1971-lsu-season/)]LINK[/link] A lot of folks are hollering about Les's "10 win seasons" as if they are unprecedented. I've got this open to 1971, but compare non-conference opponents now with what we scheduled in the past. We didn...
