The article makes it sound like there isn't any material left to pull from, but they have enough to carry that storyline through 4-5 episodes and could stretch it if they added a little material and slow played this storyline. No need for wholesale changes. Hopefully any "departure" is simply us get...

Ok, so the grass thing is overplayed. Fine. I ask you this: How many coaches not named Nick Saban get as much airtime as Les Miles?
If the recruits have a problem with it, why do we continue to have one of the top recruiting classes every year? The guy has become iconic, he represents LSU well, ...

Another brick in the R+L=J theory, and I'm sure that this has probably been mentioned somewhere already, but caught the piece on the reread of Ser Barristan when he says that after Aegon, Elia was too frail to have any more children. Pair that with Dany's vision of Rhaegar in the house of the undyin...

Shit, I need coffee. Sorry guys, for some reason I read Beckwith and thought Clifton Garrett. I think it was the whole "savior of the defense" thing.
Nothing to see here, move along. :lol:...

Wow! Really? The kid is a TRUE freshman. He has yet to play a down of college ball and we're wondering why he isn't leading the defense? C'mon, man!
He will get his chance. As far as "tools", I've heard nothing but people raving about how good he has looked. He has the skills, just give the guy s...

Noticed something in ADWD that may tie in with one of the scenes that seemed dumb this past season. Nobody (myself included) liked the scene where Asha attempts to rescue Theon and he freaks out and says that his name is Reek and he stays. In the book, when Tycho Nestoris' party delivers Theon and J...

Yes and no. I find it highly unlikely that they would leave the SEC out under any circumstances. Unless the SEC as a really down year, the SEC champ is a lock.
The question is what happens in the likely event that there's a second SEC team that's also in the top 4. Not only do I think that it's p...

as for texting and getting scores and highlights, I switched to Verizon a few years ago and have no issues. With AT&T I couldn't even make a phone call within a mile of the stadium. It would still be nice to see scores and possibly highlights of other games during commercial breaks.
