re: Weird Question, about 2003 Schedule - TigerattheU
The reason at the time: [quote]No. 1, the schedule consists of 11 games. In those years when the calendar has 14 Saturdays during the traditional football season, a school can play 12 games: 2002, 2003, 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2019.

re: Why the Hell Isn't SNF Flexing out of This GARBAGE "NFC East Showdown?" - TigerattheU
They can flex starting at Week 5 this season (2 times max in Weeks 5-10), but before the last week of the season, the flex has to be made 12 days before the game. So you'd have to weigh the uncertainties of Week 11 before deciding to flex out of this scheduled game between popular teams. Wouldn't ...

re: Suppose Bama would have missed their last field goal , would we still be a 2pt dog? - TigerattheU
I think LSU would be slightly favored; I think the disappointing loss is a bigger betting factor than the weather and history between the teams. Arkansas has been competitive this season and you have to think they get over the hump and get an SEC win somewhere. Coming off a bye against a team that...

re: What will be legalized first in Louisiana - TigerattheU
In a hypothetical race, I'd guess marijuana would be first, but gay marriage being legalized by the state is a different scenario than it becoming legal. State gay marriage bans will be overturned way before Louisiana proactively legalizes marijuana. I've read all the recent federal appellate cour...

re: Why does the NFLN broadcast still have CBS personnel and logos? - TigerattheU
Yes, but CBS is looking at it like they paid $275 million for 8 games and agreed to produce 8 more. The ratings during the simulcast on the NFL Network for the first 8 weeks are combined; this is bigger than losing the ratings for the last 8 games they produce. The partnership is like a tryout tha...
