If you have any interest in the military or military history you could take a day trip to West Point. It is gorgeous this time of year.
They have an incredible military museum (I know shocking) that is open to the public as well. I believe you can sign up for tours of the post there as well. U...

I highly reccomend it. We brought one for our 18 month old for a long flight and loved it. We did this b/c we realized that if she wasn't strapped in she would be all over the place making an extremely exhausting flight for us and everyone around us. Just know that the car seat has to go in the w...

Didn't read the 8 pages, but I would reccomend going into industry unless you have a true calling for the military. My guess is that you don't otherwise you would have gone ROTC while at LSU. You are not guaranteed to get assignments that use your degree. I was an engineering major that was in an...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Army is giving waivers for height weight restrictions for the lineman and have been doing this since the restrictians were implemented. They are small for today's standard lineman but that is probably more of a function of the type of O-lineman that they w...

If true, hopefully we get Kotwica. I did not like Warriner when he was the O-Line coach.
If they are going to 90's throw backs why not go after Perry Fewell or bring Bob Sutton back. As bad as Sutton was, he managed to Beat Navy five straight times....

In the five years that I spent in the Army I came across a few soldiers that fit this description.
Some were officers and some were elisted. You are eligible to enter West Point at age 22, which means you will be commissioned at age 26. As a previous poster mentioned you can enlist upto age 35...

LSU Sports Properties cares about this b/c it is cutting into their revenue. The purpose of LSU Sports Properties is to generate money for the athletic department via LSU assets. They want corporate tailgates to go through them so they can charge a pretty penny for renting a 20x20 plot of land for...

Why not embrace the idea of playing FL every year? After all, we have played them almost every year since 1953, which is more than we have played any other SEC program during this period except for Ole Piss and Moo U.

Kind of ironic that he chose to include teams from the east such as GA, TN, and KY in the history portion of the article and not FL. He even goes so far as give props to the fact that we played KY annually from 1952-2002.
I guess he doesn't want Tiger fans to know that we have basically played...
