| Coaching Changes|| re: Why did the interest cool on Clancy Pendergast? - south bama tiger on 1/7/15 at 1:25 am|
Alleva is a money man. That's it. He doesn't care about the quality of team we put on the field until its decline starts eating away at revenue. He wouldn't green light the firing or "demotion" of Crowton following 2009, and we lucked out after Maryland took him off our hands after 2010. I hope he ...

I want to go see it simply because my mother (and yes, I'm white) was at Selma with her parents when MLK marched through there. I want a really epic - but historically accurate - movie like this to be made....

Honestly, we threw too much in that game (not unlike Ole Miss game earlier in the year). Hill was going off and his final TD run was a man's run. Hell of a way to go out in his final game as a Tiger....

| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU TE development under Coach Steve Ensminger 2010-present - south bama tiger on 12/25/14 at 6:07 pm|
I can't attest to Ensminger's coaching ability, but in both 2013 and 2014, you could frequently look at the middle of the field on many pass plays and see a TE streaking down the center of the field largely uncovered or in between the coverage zones. Cam does call plays that involve the TE's, but fo...

Earlier this year, following the Auburn and Miss St. games, LSU fans were ready to fire Chavis, saying that the game had passed him by. They definitely improved during the second half of the season but just pointing out (in regards to the hate on Cam) how fickle fans can be. Love or hate of coaches ...

[quote]I said the majority of the hate was because of the direction of liberties it took.
See: the derisive mentioning of the angels/rock golems that occur in EVERY thread about this movie. Literally the only basis for being derogatory to their inclusion is from a bias to the original story.

There's nothing grand about it, but I think it's not coincidental that this move occurred just as things went to hell with the Russian economy. Cuba's no...

Nixon opened up relations with the People's Republic in a time when the U.S. was firmly pitted against Communism. While this interpretation overlooks the fact that China was largely at odds with Moscow and fought over border disputes, the move by Nixon is largely seen as a wise diplomatic move today...

Spacey's accent definitely threw my off the first time I heard it. I guess I haven't heard the rural Georgia/Carolina accent much, but it definitely sounded almost British to me.
Which makes a good bit of sense if you've read any about the development of the Southern accent....
