Tops was never intended to be limited by income or assets. If the qualifying scores favor white applicants over black, the problem isn't with TOPS.
For what it is worth, this comes up every few years and the Advocate bias shows in the way they try to present the data....

Can't be that unusual. I had four brothers, no sisters, and have two sons, no daughters, two grandsons, no granddaughters....
| O-T Lounge|| re: What's more damaging to our society than divorce and single-parent homes? - dinosaur on 12/8/14 at 7:49 am|
I read all the responses. Most refer to instances in which the responder has had personal experience.
But I think that the media glorification of lack of responsibility for our actions is the most damaging thing out there. Everyone sees the problems on TV solved in no more than an hour, talking ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: The two greatest improvements on D this year...what were they? - dinosaur on 12/2/14 at 2:15 pm|
I agree with you. Beckwith will probably make some all American teams before he leaves LSU. We are going to look back and ask why did it take so long for him to start. Young Defensive tackles gradually improving, but a lot of that was helped by better end play, helping to stop the run....
| Political Talk|| re: Cassidy a crook and welfare queen.... - dinosaur on 11/28/14 at 9:06 pm|
Amazing how these bombs are discovered a week before the election.
But it doesn't matter to me. I'm NOT with Mary. I would probably even vote for the real criminal (EWE) before her....
| Political Talk|| re: We Have a Moral Divide, Not a Racial One - dinosaur on 11/25/14 at 5:14 pm|
That is your belief but it is impossible to prove. How the hell can you tell the race of a criminal who was not caught? Or do you claim to know who committed each and every crime and know the race of each criminal?
And now I see you base this on some "self reporting" survey. Man, your preju...

I like it. From now on he should be the HFBP....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Brandon Harris in his own words - dinosaur on 11/17/14 at 2:24 pm|
Good one. I told my wife I could play quarterback better than what was on the field and she said you aren't 20 anymore, and I said "Twenty,Hell, I mean today".
Really, the coaching staff seems to have destroyed the confidence of both these kids. I don't give a damn who plays but they have to...
| Tiger Rant|| re: The best way to change the SEC referee issues... - dinosaur on 11/10/14 at 12:06 pm|
I agree and I said this a few years ago when something similar came up. There are hundreds of fairly competent officials out there. There should be no reason that any official calls any game involving a team with which he has any sort of connection, even to the point of living in the state involvi...
| Tiger Rant|| re: In my opinion the coaching staff has failed this team - dinosaur on 11/10/14 at 7:56 am|
Well I am certainly not a football genius but it seems that it really doesn't matter which quarterback you play if all they are going to do is hand the ball off and occasionally throw it in the neighborhood of a predetermined single receiver....
| Political Talk|| re: What would stop me from voting as someone I am not? - dinosaur on 10/21/14 at 12:30 pm|
That would be fairly easy to work. Get department of vital records to notify registrar that a death certificate was issued, resulting in automatic purge. Computers help us to share information about homestead exemptions already. Voter registrations to death certificates should be a no brainer. ...
| Political Talk|| re: Have you seen any Landrieu signs in BR? - dinosaur on 10/9/14 at 5:20 pm|
We get called almost every night, sometimes twice. I lie a lot about who I will support, just because I don't like being called so much. In the polls, I am a liberal democrat who strongly supports Mary and our President....
| Political Talk|| re: Which of the two is true? - dinosaur on 10/9/14 at 7:54 am|
The question supposes a conclusion that is not true. Regardless of costs, the OCA mandated changes in health care plans coverage so I doubt that anyone has the same plan, other than maybe congress, as they had before the act. I think that there is some pressure to keep premiums at the approximate...
| Tiger Rant|| re: It's not the losses...it's HOW LSU has lost. - dinosaur on 10/6/14 at 11:12 am|
I agree with you and I add that there is no excuse for a team in the sixth game to continue to allow quarterbacks to run free up the middle. That is a scheme problem. Someone has to key that quarterback and no correction has been made. It killed us against State and hurt badly against Auburn. An...
| Political Talk|| re: Anyone else getting lit up with RNC/GOP/NRSC calls? - dinosaur on 9/25/14 at 1:43 pm|
I am a registered democrat and my wife is a registered republican (odd considering that she is a little bit liberal and I am very conservative) so we are getting polled a lot. Basically every night. I lie a lot in my answers just to get back at them for calling all the time....
| Tiger Rant|| re: slow erosion of the lines under Miles - dinosaur on 9/23/14 at 3:29 pm|
I think you are right. The offensive line looks a little slow off the ball and often seems to not know who to block (some plays guys don't hit anyone, other times defenders run right by them), which all seems to fit with a change in the scheme from last year. If it is a scheme problem, it will co...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Game changing play of the game - dinosaur on 9/22/14 at 7:53 am|
I think Les believes that winning football is all about will and that he wants to impose his will on the other team, so he runs those plays knowing that the other guys know what is coming.
But I am afraid that the season defining series was the failure to score with four plays from the two yard l...
| Political Talk|| re: . - dinosaur on 9/3/14 at 9:09 am|
I am a generation away from you. My father grew up in a shack in the woods. He was the first in his family to graduate from high school and go on to college. Everyone in my generation, including cousins, went on to college. From being dirt poor to doctors and lawyers and engineers. The single t...
| Political Talk|| re: Mary Landrieu's Louisiana residency being challenged. - dinosaur on 8/28/14 at 3:22 pm|
If something like this is enough to make you vote for Mary, you are not making an informed decision. The point, however petty, is that she has drifted away from the Louisiana mainstream and become more of a Washington. D.C. person in thought and attitude. Will it make a difference? I think not, b...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Last time hype = actual results - dinosaur on 8/28/14 at 2:02 pm|
I can't recall any recruit on any college team that was so hyped. Even Hershel Walker was not expected to be superman as a freshman. That is not to reflect on anyone's actual ability, and running back is usually the easiest position to just step into, but that the expectations may be too much for ...
