Personally id put only what the company matches into the 401k while young. At 19 id go ahead and max at the Roth ira first, that is if you expect to be at a higher income bracket later in life. And if you're making enough to max out a Roth ira and a 401k....then you are filthy rich. 17500 is way to...
| Tiger Rant|| re: What if: Jennings as starter for 2015 - jacquespene8 on 12/20/14 at 8:55 am|
I desire for the best quarterback to start next year. If Jennings improves, then he would be a good quarterback for us. He showed signs of smart scrambling late in the year. Maybe he will be the mobile quarterback Miles has always wanted! And if he is good next year, he could improve even more by hi...
| Movie/TV Board|| Clancy: Jack Ryan series books - jacquespene8 on 12/14/14 at 10:13 pm|
I keep seeing interesting tom Clancy novels on audible and a lot of them say "Jack Ryan, book 13," and so on. Do I have to read the Jack Ryan series books in order or is each novel a separate entity that can be enjoyed without having read the previous ones?...

My opinion is that's she's not my room mate, she's my wife. We don't split bills like college room mates. We have a mutually accessible joint account. If I can't trust her with our money, and/or she couldn't trust me with it either, then we probably have deeper issues.
We discuss all purchases and...

Stop all other savings and retirement and attack the loan. All the other talk about deductions and interest et al is just reaching for reasons to drag the loan out. Obviously have a little money saved up for emergencies, but get that loan out of your life and start livin....

| Tiger Rant|| re: What is the acceptable expectation of LSU for this board? - jacquespene8 on 12/6/14 at 7:19 pm|
I expect to win a national championship every 2-3 years and on the years that we don't win one, it's because it was a down year and our one loss came at the wrong time. I expect to beat bama at least every other year, if not more. Less than that might be overlooked if there's a reason for it. But th...

[quote]Someone posted in another thread that he is very happy with Miles, wants him to stay at LSU, and expects LSU to "sweeten the pot for him" if Michigan seriously comes calling. My question is this: If you want Miles to stay at LSU, will you be ok with Alleva giving him another raise and exten...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Why did Miles kick a FG with 12 seconds left? - jacquespene8 on 11/28/14 at 8:34 am|
I have to think that Miles really really really wanted to convert that gift from Noils into some points. He was afraid of turning the ball over or having some kind of clock management meltdown, thus losing the opportunity to capitalize on the other team's mistake.
Rule number something in footba...

Mizz v TN.
I think Tennessee is turning a corner. Bowl eligibility if they win tonight. (It's possible that TN will match LSU's record this year).
And they have a fun quarterback to watch! Something we don't see often....

[quote]I don't disagree with your comment, but the defender would have to go through the receiver to defend a well thrown ball. That throw and catch should be successful most of the time.[/quote]
I can agree with that. I just think that the only way you can sit with mouth agape at that misread is...

That picture, to me, only shows a receiver being a little bit open. I don't know if people noticed the safety in the endzone or not. Yea the receiver is open for a split second but openness is defined by where everybody will be when the ball gets there. I wouldn't use that freeze frame to prove anyt...
| Tiger Rant|| re: What we all want - jacquespene8 on 11/17/14 at 4:45 pm|
I want to see a young offense make progress. Interceptions happen. Fumbles happen and penalties and dropped passes happen. But at a college football program like LSU, we should see a few bright moments in between the mistakes. We don't see that. We see mistakes, and lack of mistakes, but we don't se...
