| Tiger Rant|| When Will You Know if This Season Is Going to Be Special or Bumpy Ride? - AlwysATgr on 7/31/14 at 9:21 pm|
- Show that we have enough passing to keep teams honest on D.
- Strong-to-dominant play up the middle on D (from DL-to-S)
When I see those, I'll be confident that '14 could be a special season.

[quote]Not a huge fan of the NC style BBQ, . . .

I can echo this. Tried NC BBQ while I lived there and didn't like it. Moved to TX and was intro'd to brisket, fell in love with it, and the honeymoon lives on!

Tried brisket and sausage at all three (Smitty's, Black's, and Kreuze's) and pork spare ribs at Kreuze's. The brisket at all three was great. I preferred Black's a little more than the others because it had a little more smoke flavor (which I like). ...

We were in the Co. River so wind wasn't an issue. I take it our guide was ok just not a lot to work with in the way of fish.
I have more love for fishing than knowledge so no claims for greatness here. But the fellow who lets me tag along has always done better whether in the Rigolets, Hopedale,...
| Outdoor Board|| Fishing Guide Question - Delacroix vs Matagorda, TX - AlwysATgr on 7/20/14 at 1:19 am|
Some background - a friend of mine (not a charter captain) got me interested in fishing in SE LA before I moved to Katy. My last fishing trip in LA was October, '13 out of Delacroix. Not the best day but we still put 69 specs, 2 reds, and 2 drum in the box among four of us in about 6-7 hours.

The '74 USC-ND was one of the first that came to mind. It was a Sat afternoon TV game when not many games were on TV. A Davis put on a show.
Surprised no Gator fans have mentioned the '95 UTenn-UF game. I'll let them have the honors on the details but what a crazy game.

'84 was an ok yr. Probably should've beat UF (Betanzos) missed a short FG that would've won it. We were thin at DL. Lost Barbay for the yr vs UF. Lost Henry Thomas for the yr vs ND. Andolsek was starting at DL as a true FR.

30 years ago this season Bill Arnsparger coached his first season at LSU. He stopped the roller coaster of the Stovall era.
One of the fruits of his brief tenure was the paradigm shift. Before Bill, "success" was beating our rivals (OM and Tulane) and getting a good bowl bid. With him, "success" ...

Which joints are on yours?
Just recently ate at Blacks and Kreuze's (pronounced Krites) and sampled Smitty's in Lockhart.
On my short lost are City Market in Luling, some in Austin, and Louie Mueller's in Taylor.
