| Outdoor Board|| Anyone still fish the Lump? - Big L on 2/10/15 at 8:49 am|
I haven't fished it since 2010, as it seemed to have waned as a honeyhole for big tuna and wahoo. We did pull a couple 100+ pounders off it in 2010, but in three trips after that all we caught was sharks and vermillion snapper. I haven't made a trip this time of year in a while and am itching to g...

I'm headed to a friends' ranch for New Years and hoping to repay the gesture by bringing along a thermal scope for a hog hunt. I don't own one and am interested in renting one. Ive shot them a few times using another friends guns...it's the tits. I've seen a few places that rent them but would we...

I've done quite a few overnighters to drill ships and floaters for tuna, but would like to go out tomorrow during the day and fish shrimp boats, as I've heard that's where the big dogs are. Any advice on the following would be appreciated from those with experience:
1) What area to look for boat...

I've got a Remington shotgun I bought from Academy with a jamming problem that I want to get fixed before dove season. I've never sent a gun back. Should I send it to Remington? Anybody have any idea on how long it will take them to repair? Thanks!...
| More Sports Board|| Best Spikeless Golf Shoe - Big L on 2/20/13 at 12:05 pm|
I'm looking to get some new golf shoes and thinking of going spikeless. I used to play in tennis shoes in college and grip was never an issue. I can always bust out the spiked shoes if the course is soft. Anyway, since all the shoe companies are jumping in and putting stuff out there, I was curio...

Will everyone look back and laugh at how stupid the BCS was? and how stupid it was to let writers decide?
This year is a perfect example of how stupid the BCS is....tons of 1-loss teams, one undefeated team, and a few 2-loss teams that are more feared than half the one-loss teams. i'm sad tha...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Saints should get back at Goodell - Big L on 9/24/12 at 11:32 pm|
assuming we continue to suck and lose a bunch more games, when we play on MNF later this year, Saints should just not play. I'm talking take a knee on four straight snaps and don't even try to play defense. Technically play the game but put zero effort and just let the other team score. It would ...
| Tiger Rant|| Does that game change how Miles prepares/coaches? - Big L on 1/10/12 at 11:00 pm|
He'll have tons of time to reflect, will Miles
A) Realize that he needs to get back to being the mad hatter and mixing it up/taking chances?
B) Rationalize it over time and blame the players and other circumstances and continue game planning and coaching like we did this year, hoping for super...
| More Sports Board|| Football rules that make no sense - Big L on 12/21/11 at 10:32 pm|
1. Fumbling forward and out of the end zone is a touchback and the other team is awarded possession. WFT? Why such a big penalty to the offensive team? Shouldn't the offense just get it at the 1 yard line?
2. Kickoffs that go out of bounds result in the receiving team getting it on the 40, bu...

| SEC Rant|| Why does everyone expect Head coaches to be like Presidents? - Big L on 12/8/11 at 10:58 pm|
These guys have one of, if not THE most cut-throat jobs in the world. Universities fire them at the drop of a hat...look at Sherman getting canned by A&M 1 year after they had their best season in a decade. It's great that Les is a great guy and can get results but I don't fault Saban for being a ...

| SEC Rant|| Other than Brad Wing's TD, any other SEC TD's called back for taunting? - Big L on 12/6/11 at 8:49 am|
I don't remember hearing about any others being called back in the SEC. Would be the second time in the past decade that the only time a penalty was called was against LSU. First was the rule against landing on your own team when jumping to block a field goal. It was called once all season in 200...
| SEC Rant|| Irony of the BCS this year - Big L on 12/5/11 at 9:25 pm|
BCS was created because of all the examples of top-rated teams not being able to play each other due to bowl affiliations. Remember multiple undefeated teams left the writers saying, "if only we could find a way to get these teams to play."
So, here we are, 14 years or whatever in, and a system ...
| SEC Rant|| Should LSU pull an Alabama move and go ahead and claim a NC? - Big L on 12/4/11 at 9:13 pm|
LSU the only undefeated team...we're playing essentially an "exhibition game" like Alabama claims bowl games were back in the day. It's an exhibition game because the country thinks the second best team is a team we already beat at home.
Personally I don't want to see us stoop to their level.....

I'm trying to remember if there were other years that the outcome was in doubt as much as this one would be if OSU and LSU win. Everyone can do the math on the computers but the human voting isn't released until the show, right?...

| SEC Rant|| They shouldn't post the BCS results until the end of the season - Big L on 11/22/11 at 12:50 pm|
I think it's possible that some writers are going to move Bama lower in their rankings because they don't want a rematch, and they shouldn't be able to game the system like that. IMO, the BCS computer formulas and results should be kept a secret until after all regular season games and conference c...

Was just thinking that everyone has been crucifying JoePa based on McQueary's testimony, but McQueary is trying to clear his name by saying he stopped it and told the cops and that appears to be a lie....could he have lied about what he told JoePa? What if his dad convinced him that maybe he didn't...
