re: LSU students and faculty planning to protest prayer rally! Wow - lsuprof
[quote]From my understanding people are upset because the prayer rally is being funded by a hate group, they aren't upset because people are praying.[/quote] The group is classified as a "hate group" by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has no credibility except among a small number of peopl...

re: Will Harris play? - lsuprof
Of course he won't play. Coach Miles has been playing Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown since the Auburn game. He is the head coach, and if wanted Harris in the game Harris would be in the game. The fact that he is not says that Coach doesn't want him in the game, despite his claims that H...

Mary Landrieu quote about Obamacare - lsuprof
[quote]“….We did not wake up one morning and declare this the law. The people of the United States declared this through us as their Representatives. If they do not like it, they can unelect us. Believe me, they will have a great chance because I am up for reelection right now. They will be able to ...

re: Cassidy's message was clear and simple..and it won him the election - lsuprof
This comment is right on target. Cassidy stayed on message and there was nothing that Landrieu could do about it. Obama is extremely unpopular in this state and it was not difficult to connect Landrieu to Obama--she left plenty of ammunition for that in various comments that she has made since Obama...

re: Landrieu outperformed the rcp poling averages by 8 points - lsuprof
An election like this is very difficult to predict with precision. The big problem is turnout. In a general election we have a lot of previous experience that can be used to predict who the likely voters are and how the likely voters are likely to vote. In a runoff election like this, it is more dif...

re: Rolling Stone Screwed The Pooch - lsuprof
This is a cluster-f**k of epic proportions. It may well be that there was a gang rape warranting an investigation at UVa. But printing this story without the appropriate level of skepticism and scrutiny casts doubt on these allegations and resulted in the kind of overreaction by university officials...

re: Rams won't apologize... - lsuprof
The argument that this is a freedom of speech issue is ridiculous. Freedom of speech is a right derived from the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and applies to government restriction of speech. Private entities--businesses, clubs, NFL football teams--are free to take action to limit the spe...

re: The list of Obama mistakes deserving impeachment is growing - lsuprof
Does Obama deserve impeachment. Sure. Is impeachment in the House and conviction in the Senate going to happen? No. There is absolutely no way that impeachment will get off the ground in the Senate, so let's stop talking about it as if it were a real possibility. Democratic senators support the pres...

re: The crowd didn't do their part - lsuprof
It is correct that the crowd at the Ole Miss game was loader and had more energy than the crowd at the Alabama game. I thought that the crowd last night was going to be absolutely crazy and was surprised to see that it was less intense than the crowd at the Ole Miss game. I wouldn't say that the cro...

DSCC cancels advertising reservations for Landrieu? - lsuprof

re: If Cassidy ends up ahead of Mary, she should just concede - lsuprof
I do not see a plausible scenario in which Landrieu wins the runoff. If at the end of the evening majority control of the Senate had still been up in the air, then she knew that there would be tons of money invested in the Louisiana race. With national attention directed toward Louisiana, she might ...

NCAA rankings--LSU #4 in scoring defense - lsuprof
Here is LSU's statistical profile for this week. [link=(http://stats.ncaa.org/team/index/11980?org_id=365.0)]LINK[/link] Not much going in terms of offense rankings, but note that LSU is ranked #4 in scoring defense, #1 in pass efficiency defense, #4 in passing yards defense, and #15 in total ...

LSU statistical profile - lsuprof
[link=(http://stats.ncaa.org/team/index/11980?org_id=365.0)]LINK[/link] The last two games have really improved LSU's rank in terms of team defense--13th in overall defensive yards allowed, 3rd in passing yards and passing efficiency, and 6th in points allowed. At this point it appears that the d...

re: Feminist video, what do you think? (NSFW Language) - lsuprof
The data on differences between men and women cited here are either flat out wrong or seriously misinterpreted. (The one in five women subjected to sexual assault is particularly laughable.) This video reveals not only the depravity of the parents who would let their daughters participate but also t...

re: Rasmussen Kansas poll: Orman +5 over Roberts - lsuprof
I am not saying that Orman is not ahead or can't win, but you have to discount the Rasmussen polls. They are way off compared to other, better polls. Moreover, Rasmussen used to have a strong Republican lean, but after being so far if in other elections they have changed the polling process and have...
