I agree. I Think the 80's and 90's cars are not old enough. I am a BMW m fan but I really like and appreciate the old corvettes. The 90's Ferrari's are horrible to work on for even the simple tasks. I would never get one for the m...

We live near the katy area and our pool guy was out of the woodlands. Built just what we wanted and did his initial 3d artists rendering which turned out just like the pictures. We did a swim up bar and fire pit, also already had a outdoor kitchen/cabana. The pool and firepit was in that 75k ran...

If you are keeping the car more short tern the bmw is the way to go. All majntenace J's paid for for the first 50k miles. That is a great incentive. I prefer the bmw m cars but they are all great.

I am not confident of our QB situation but then again I haven't been since Jamarcus Russell. The fact is we have won a lot of games with average qb's. I personally think the game's in the SEC are won running and stopping the run. I feel like if we were knew our identity as a running team during t...

The key to in ceiling speakers is you can't run them too hard. They dont have the same response as other cabinet style speakers. You typically should do more speakers so each of them is putting out less volume. I found the polks give pretty good sound for the price. Recently finished a house and...
| SEC Rant|| re: why I am concerned about Aggie football futures. - Houston Texas Tiger on 1/1/14 at 8:59 pm|
Losing JFF and Evans is huge but look at LSU and bama starting with new QB's. I would still put them offensively in the top 3-4. They will have to make big improvements on D but they will get better. If nothing else the young talent will improve some. As far as Texas, the ags being in the SEC is...

Geographically lsu is at a disadvantage for traveling. You will see the same challenges for Missouri and ATM long term when they start going to the same bowls. You need new locations to create an excitement in traveling. We also spent bowl type money for the game in dallas this Year.

The issue with Bamas stadium is the 50 yard line seats are a long way away from the field. It is more circular where LSU's goes straight up from the sideline. Bama's stadium is one of the best in the country, but I still prefer a night game in Baton Rouge....

The best way to handle the STTDB is to play it during commercial breaks. That way it doesnt offend the cbs audience and tiger stadium still gets to do the cheer. I say anything that keeps the student body engaged in the game is a great thing. IT beats the wave. ...
