I'm just going by his demeanor on the field last night. I realize he's playing with a bit of extra fire being from LC. He reminded me of a baseball version of Henderson, not exactly like Henderson. Not many are on that guy's level....

Mathis did remind me of Henderson. They go with the loose pants and unbuttoned jersey as a designation of a tough, scrappy, loose team. But it just looks sloppy....

That's the Hal's Hair Reflections special.
He spoke so glowingly of LSU during that extended postgame and analysis that he was probably uncomfortable answering LSU again to that final question. Not surprised his hair and being complimentary of Vandy is the news on the Rant....

Unless you really need the cash right away for some reason, Coinstar for a 0% charge on an Amazon credit is the way to go. Getting a coffee and dumping $600 in coins into that machine sounds like a good time to me....

Starting in 2014, the Chick-fil-A is one of the six major bowl games, and those games are played with a triple header on New Year's Eve and a triple header on New Years Day. So only one more season until "playing in the Chicken bowl" and "not even playing in January" are a thing of the past....

It seems like the actual slight wasn't the situation but if it was handled an unnecessary hostility. You have to read the OP a couple times to get that though.

A curfew during probation is a standard condition and not something as serious as home confinement. The standard language is the curfew is imposed "unless it conflicts with a work schedule." In Hill's case, I assume the curfew was tailored for a student athlete to include approved extracurricular ac...

Yeah I'm looking forward to the 2014 conference schedule coming out. The September non-conference games will probably set an attendance record, but there won't be much atmosphere. Would be great if Sept. 20th was a huge early season conference game.
