Put me down for the 40% Powerball option. That is a life changer for the person and his/her entire family.
I would still have to work with the La Lotto. Granted it woudl knock 5 to 10 years off my retirement timeline which would be nice.

I would say about 200k is the number where you can do some nice things and also feel like you are still able to put a decent amount away to invest for retirement.

Despise Verne. I cannot understand how he still has a job. He is so biased calling games and he is drunk most of the time or maybe just senile.
Gary is pretty good though....

I will admit that I haven't completely ruled out Saban to Texas. He didn't turn down a deal from them so I'd like to see them offer 10 MM and see what he says. It's unlikely but not dead in my opinion....

| Coaching Changes|| re: If Saban Is Staying At Bama Why Hasn't He Signed His Contract Extension? - dandan on 12/12/13 at 8:06 pm|
Lets take a step back and analyze. Saban is very methodical. He doesn't make hasty decisions. He is also very smart so he definitely could be using the Texas interest as leverage. He needs to figure out his 5 year plan. I think he also realizes that this will be his last flirtation in his caree...

| Coaching Changes|| re: Do you think Saban SHOULD go to Texas? - dandan on 12/10/13 at 9:59 am|
Depends how long he wants to coach. If he only wants to coach 1 - 3 yrs he should stay in Tuscaloosa.
If he can do at least 4 I think he should go. He would have an easier path to get in the top 4 of the playoff. Texas has more money and even better access to recruits. Austin and Tx are 100...

Outside of playing in a BCS bowl the matchup is important to me. If LSU got to rematch with Clemson in the Chick-Fil-La Bowl I would be happy at this point. If it is Duke it would suck.
Let's just wait and see how things shake out this weekend before getting worked up about it.

Never hated him at bama. It definitely hurt more with him in the same division. I think he retires at bama in a couple years. I will admit I was wrong before and thought he would leave for something else. Ideally lsu would win a couple titles while he is still with the tide. However I think sa...

I am guessing he didn't have any insurance but was just curious. I don't know how NCAA rules work but I was thinking it would be pretty cool if LSU fans could have some type of fundraiser for him. I realize his medical bills should be covered by LSU or the NCAA but am thinking he lost several hund...

Saban/Bama fatigue. Saban and Bama have been great but also extremely lucky to win the last couple of titles. The media played this into Saban is unbeatable even though he usually loses at least 1 game a year.
Never had a problem with Bama and still don't today. I think Saban is the best coach...

Michigan is probably the only major program that could be interested in "stealing" him away at this point. Or possibly even USC-W (they are a mess right now and if they are even considering Coach O then they should be interested in Miles).
I can't see any major SEC program wanting him enough to ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Would this win be the biggest win in les miles career? - dandan on 11/3/13 at 12:24 pm|
The Ohio St BCS title game is the only answer. Without that win I think there is a good chance they would have let him go after the 2009 season.
