re: "Who was as good as Pete Maravich?" - kjacksonp
Saw many of his freshman games and almost all of his varsity games at home. Was at the game when he broke the NCAA career scoring record. He kept passing the ball instead of shooting, building the drama it seemed. Finally got a breakaway layup. Cow Palace went crazy. His most amazing performan...

re: Who was a better coach while at LSU, Dale Brown or Charlie Mac? - kjacksonp
For improvement in status of a program from start to pinnacle: Dale Brown without a doubt. He was a great recruiter, had uniquely designed defenses that confused even really good teams, BUT had no clue about offensive strategy--street ball was as good as it got. His failure to take Shaq, Ch...

re: How much longer will Les Miles be here? - kjacksonp
Not just age to be considered; overall health will affect stamina and focus. I have heard that Saban has coronary artery issues that are not talked about but that could affect both his coaching longevity and his life expectancy, especially with the lifestyle that coaches keep....

re: Spinoff ranking LSU's rivals: Who do you hate to lose to more? - kjacksonp
Ole Miss--historically, after Tulane way back, our biggest rivalry. And they don't know how to act like they've done it before when they finally win one. Arkansas TAM--again, historically a big rivalry Bama Auburn--sister Ag school; good folks. If we have to lose, rather be to them....

re: If Saban leaves Alabama will LSU fans still hate him? - kjacksonp
Never hated him. Did not appreciate his dishonesty when being recruited to Bama. I saw him apologize recently for that lack of integrity (more or less his words) on the CBS special done on him. He made a mistake; not going to hate him for that. Never hated him for going to Bama. It was the bes...

re: The Rant, Week in Review: LSU has not improved during this season. - kjacksonp
I do think the attitude of our fan base is BCSCG or the season is a loss--meaning that the UGA loss made the season a loss as a whole to many fans. Decades ago, a team could have 2 or 3 losses and still play a "meaningful" bowl game. In '65 LSU was 7-3, not in the top 10, and beat #1 Arky in the ...

re: Do Auburn fans think they can really beat Alabama? - kjacksonp
Saban will put 8 in the box, shut down the read option, and dare them to pass. Unless the passing attack is being hidden (7 passes against Tenn. with the only TD being for TD) they don't have a chance. ...

Precious metals market - kjacksonp
With the dollar up in value gold and silver have fallen. They seem to keep bouncing off of about the same resistance (high 1200's for gold, around 20+ for silver). For those who are interested in buying either gold or silver for "safety" against fiat money inflation or hyperinflation, is this a...

Biggest expense risk is definitely if the infant has complications. So long as that is not an issue from an insurance standpoint, you are probably okay with any of the options. Have seen more than one "million dollar baby" in my career (hospitalization costs for preterm/complicated infant)...
