[quote]We've always booed the other team when they ran out onto the field[/quote]
No, it used to be "Tiger Bait", but it has been awhile. I've said many times on here that booing anyone other than the officials on truly bad calls or an opposing player who does something dirty (like Day) is just s...

Damn, I hope not!
Crazy thing is, LSU could still play for the National Championship. Not saying that they will, I'll be happy if they go .500 from here on out this year and show improvement, but with the craziness and par...

If "Angel Heart" is not considered a horror movie, then I say pretty much that whole damn movie.
Agree with the Saving Private Ryan and Roger Rabbit scenes mentioned. I was going to mention the "what's in the box?"scene, as well as a few others from Se7en, but I wasn't sure how to classify the mo...

Yeah, "Home" was freaky. Let's wheel Momma out from under the bed and have a good ole family gang bang. "Squeeze" was good too. X-Files was great, but it seemed like the writers ended up trying to spin too many plates and lost control of their storylines toward the end. ...

I know that sense and logic mean little when discussing some laws in general and NCAA rules in particular, but I'm not sure that they can legally restrict LF's family from selling the Buga stuff because they were already doing it when he was in High School and, as mentioned, St. Aug's colors are als...

I've said this numerous times, but booing anyone is stupid. It's that simple. If you aren't happy with what the home team is doing, silence can be deafening.
Yelling at refs over a bad call, yes. Yelling at an opposing player for doing something bad, like the stomping thing with Day, that's acce...

I clicked on to say exactly that. I'm sure that SEC Network folks thought that he would be a great fit based on the success of his radio show. Problem is, his radio show is overrated to begin with and he really does not translate well to television. He's ug...

First off, it's a little early for knee jerk reactions on Grimes. Everybody loved him on here a month ago. Let's see how it goes.
As for Mawae, I wanted to see him in the role, but I can understand Les not bringing him on due to lack of coaching experience. That said, the guy represents LSU well ...

Thanks for the bump.
Saw Jojen tonight in the Maze Runner.
On Maggy the Frog, pretty sure that casting was confirmed, so how else could they shoot that other than a flashback?
On Fake Arya, I could see that, but his current woman actually likes Ramsay, so to fit the story line he would ha...

Sirius Black (Sirius = Dogstar)
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why isn't Miss St. ranked?? - ffishstik on 9/19/14 at 9:32 am|
Partly because they haven't played anyone and partly because the rankings system is flawed. There are not 25 teams out there better than MSU, but most pollsters don't truly rank the teams based on how good they are, they base it on predictions and current rankings. I've heard Herbstreit and others e...

I don't know, the part where I was still sitting in a clusterfrick of a traffic situation after a game that was over not long after the coin toss? I trust my own eyes more than what I hear second hand from someone with an agenda. And make no mistake, they have a want to prove that further screwing up...

Not entirely on topic, but definitely related, I was told last night that they are planning to build a new TAF facility on the old Box site instead of a parking garage. Is that true?...
