re: So Joe Alleva is no longer guaranteeing that A&M will be a Saturday Night. - Obi-Wan Tiger
They weren't forced, at least according to Alleva. I remember him saying the conference had to ensure LSU had a bye week the previous Saturday before he would agree to it....

re: So Joe Alleva is no longer guaranteeing that A&M will be a Saturday Night. - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]Probably a function of bargaining power at the time. We had something to offer. [/quote] I agree with this, but I would think the same point would be in effect with the A&M deal, no? Didn't LSU have to agree to the Turkey Day game? Or did they not have a choice?...

[quote]Not the way it works. Demanding Saturday night home games just isn't on the table. [/quote] Apparently you missed 2011, where upon moving the game in Tuscaloosa to prime time, CBS also committed to ensure that the 2012 game in Baton Rouge would also be a prime time game. Fairly certain th...

re: I want to hear from some of my fellow so-called "Sunshine Pumpers" - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]You wouldn't understand because you never were an LSU Tiger. You wear a tshirt that says "2003 National Champions" while I have a diploma that says "Louisiana State University."[/quote] This response is just tired. Let it go. Nothing wrong with what he said. He said he'd rather have more ...

re: I want to hear from some of my fellow so-called "Sunshine Pumpers" - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]based largely on past results[/quote] There has only been one season in the Miles era (to his credit) that a person could logically compare this season to in trying to predict the outcome of the rest of the season and that is 2008. The Tigers were blown out by two of the top three teams t...

re: Predictions on Ole Miss Kick Time - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]Ole Miss will be undefeated coming to Tiger Stadium against an LSU team that has won a few in a row. [/quote] Don't count out MSU vs Kentucky that day. MSU will be also be undefeated, and ranked #1 in at least one poll. Kentucky, even if they lose to us, will still have no more losses ...

re: Why can't college football time their games to three hours like the NFL? - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]Halftime 15 minutes[/quote] If I recall correctly, when they implemented the rules to speed up play a few years back (i.e. starting the clock after an out of bounds play once the ball was marked ready for play) they also made it optional for college halftimes to be shortened to 15 minutes,...

re: 11/3/2012 worse than 1/9/2012 - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]Nope[/quote] Yes, the penalty was in the first half. Hill got down to the 13 but the penalty pushed the ball back to the 28. That drive ended with a failed fake FG. Unless Copeland had another penalty that is not showing up in the play by play. ...

[quote]They're +19 this year. I'm good. That upward progression must be hard to look at for people that hate what they're doing. Looking at you Ryno and others that's cried all year.

re: What former big time sporting events have become an afterthought? - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]From 1995 on...total joke. #21 USC vs. unranked Texas Tech.

But that was during the Bow...

[quote]Interesting that he threw this 11 yards, with the knowledge that Diarse would have to break at least one tackle to get the first down.[/quote] I think they were probably thinking FG at that point…we were still 11 down and needed a FG anyway to have a chance to tie. 21 yards is a pretty lo...
