| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Saints going forward - Templars on 1/14/14 at 11:53 am|
Defense needs to be paid and retained. I wouldn't mind an additional passrusher but that's lagniappe.
An additional deep threat receiver would be nice to have.
It would be nice if Brees did a Tom Brady for the sake of seeking another championship.
As I said, the defense needs to be paid. ...

Hey Mike Sleeve or however you spell your name, I used to enjoy seeing LSU come to Nashville every 2 years but thanks to you, I don't have that enjoyment to look forward to.
Thanks a whole hell of a lot greedy goofball....

[b]QB -- In: (2) Philip Rivers and Charlie Whitehurst (free agent, Seahawks). Out: Jarrett Lee (undrafted, LSU) and Kevin O'Connell (free agent, Jets). Analysis: Lee is starting to show he could develop into a quality NFL QB, but the Chargers will likely try to sneak him on to the practice squad to ...

They have taken this saga much better than I imagine other fans around the league would have.
If I'm going Germans on this notion then so be it - they clearly have a good sense of humor and the attitude of "what can you do when there is nothing you can do", has been very refreshing to see....
| SEC Rant|| Michael Oher - University of Ole Miss - Templars on 11/6/11 at 7:39 pm|
Didn't know they changed the name of the University according to Raven starting tackle Michael Oher.
Alternatively, maybe they don't teach incoming student athletes the actual name of the school they are studying at, while playing football "on the side".

This is just stupid and a scheduling nightmare all over football. Missouri - in the SEC - geesh - at least West Virginia was "east" and they would have been a nice fit in the Eastern division.
Many parties are going to rue the day they made these ill-thought out decisions. WVU fits the mode of a...

What the hell is that about? This is a very capable and wonderfully mannered woman who has run a Women's AD department splendidly. I surely hope this was truly her desire because if it's a case of chauvinism, there should me major outrage.
And to think, an Alabama guy to lead Tenn? What a coloss...

Saw this black dude wearing a McKinley Panthers shirt a couple of times - thought hmm - maybe.
Now I see he is wearing a LSU shirt so I'm pretty convinced he is from Baton Rouge. As for why TMZ is on my TV, I'm too lazy to change the channel after 2 episodes of Family Guy - not that the dude who...

Geesh, great seasons but 0 - 4 in the finals really is a shame. I knew Florida had Vandy's number but you have to think Vandy would have put up more resistance than that.
And hey, I was a big Florida Softball fan so not bashing them - just they don't get the job done once they get there. This hap...

Funny - Bruder did some complaining about the umps in the post game press conference. Though I agree with her, best not to give the Sun Devils extra bulletin board material.
Already an error on the 1st hitter - not a good omen.
Already a florida made thread is up so this one will be allowed to...
| SEC Rant|| NCAA Tournament thoughts - early impressions - Templars on 6/5/11 at 2:52 am|
Like all LSU fans, it's been a rather dull viewing of the tournament thus far. I caught part of the Vandy vs Troy game in Nashville, and I can assure all the excitement from the fans isn't even 25% the buzz and excitement of an LSU hosted regional. When LSU hosted all those regionals back in the 90s...

That said it's important to remember that this team has lost 7 games by 1 run - 6 of those in the SEC. Prior to this weekend, they were certainly competitive.
This weekend however, certainly looked like a team that had given up. Other than a reserve Catcher yelling some support to one of the pitc...

I am amused as are other Tennesseans here In Nashville, that more blame hasn't been pointed to the real blame for Tenn's troubles.
From his flaky hire of Kiffin, to the lack of institutional control, Hamilton has wrongly avoided blame. I'm glad to see Mandell throw Hamilton on the grill where he ...
| Tiger Rant|| So we canned John Brady so we could lose to Nicholls and this? - Templars on 1/26/11 at 8:50 pm|
They stand around - they seldom move without the ball - they seem lost on the court - their coach dresses well and stands during timeouts.
I speak of course about the basketball team at Louisiana State University - AKA - the team that others are happy to see after a losing streak.
