I wanna see if the oline can create clean pockets and open running lanes for Drew and the RBs consistently. Do we know who's starting at center? I also wanna see Patrick Robinson cover well....

Fox = Nope
Beck = Not anymore after being convinced about a few conspiracies he pushed that made me feel stupid when they disintegrated. I liked when he educated about history and recommended interesting books, but the whole predict the future and push conspiracy crap got cheap and infuriating.

In no particular order:
1. Scan tickets on the ramps exiting the stadium after the game has ended for TAF points and raffle entries.
2. As has been mentioned, play a brief highlight reel and scoreboard update of the SEC and top 25 during extended TV timeouts using the "brought to you by..." sp...

I did, but I have a simplistic philosophy.
Buy quality companies when they dip if I have the money to invest. I don't see Amazon going anywhere, and the phone could be big.

I haven't read the whole thread, but my opinion is not to trade Drew. You don't try to change your most important position for the future at a time when you have what many consider the most talented saints roster ever right now. Drew is already a HOFer who can win on the biggest stages, and Luck whi...

He may or may not be a communist, but his political accomplishments are far short of communism. The policies may be the seeds to grow into communist policy, but at this time that hyperbole will immediately discredit you.

What? No insulting, arrogant response?
Thanks for the great discourse. I'm sadly left unsatisfied with this thread because I'm a big Scott Walker fan, and enjoy defending against the feeble attempts at attacking him. The political tactics and reporting on those tactics re...

Posted this long response in another thread, but thought it was worth a repost here:
I think that Obama is more radical than most centrist Ds think, and also so painfully inexperienced at being in charge of anything that he always leans heavily on his strength which is being a leftist political h...

Didn't shoot anybody. Just calling it like I see it. You are certainly being sensitive this morning. I didn't attack or insult you, just pointed out how I feel about the situation and the biased media.

Every country commits "atrocities" in the eyes of their geo-political opponents. It's the way of the world.
The problem here is anti-semitism. As soon as someone defends Israel's right to defend themselves, you are labeled "a zionist sympathizer." When you ask them what the solution is to the co...

Sorry for the long post but,
Only 5 teams on the schedule this year that can match LSU in both talent and coaching:
1. Wisky (neutral site) - LSU's athleticism on D should slow the B10 style offense as usual, so it will come down to making big plays on offense. I think LSU will be explosive bu...

I think Mett was a better 3rd down QB and that is what usually separates QBs in the NFL, but as someone posted before JR was better in college. If Mett had one more year with the type of talent that will be across the oline protecting him he may have progressed and been considered better. Watching b...
