re: Oklahoma St. coach Mike Gundy says they would've beaten LSU by three TDs in 2011 - lsuprof
[quote]quote: "I don’t think there’s any question that we would have lost by three touchdowns," Gundy told the Tulsa World newspaper. "We couldn't stop anybody.” Corrected it for him. That's what he really meant to say.[/quote] This is one of the best posts! Gundy is delusional if he thi...

re: Baltimore protests - lsuprof
This is one of the strategies being employed by protesters. Instead of marching in the streets or rallying in the park, you confront people at restaurants, sporting events, etc. demanding that they support the cause-du-jour. In New York during the Occupy episode protesters would go into restaurants ...

re: LSU should have their budget cut if this is the quality of students... - lsuprof
While there are some really bright students in the Manship School, there are also quite a few lightweight students in that program. Unfortunately, it seems that many of the lightest of the lightweights find themselves writing editorials for the Reveille. Most reasonable people come to realize that m...

re: Christina Sommers discusses "trigger warnings" - lsuprof
Sommers is a brilliant commentator and is essentially correct in her take of modern feminism, particularly academic feminism. This particular video is on a bit of an esoteric topic, but much of what she writes about (e.g., gender wage gap) is right on target....

re: Game Thread: LSU - 6 vs. Bama - 2 Final!!! Tigers Win! - lsuprof
This is the worst camera work that I have seen in watching a baseball game. The camera person must be an idiot. I can't believe that there aren't complaints about this from the gumps....

re: LSU Spring Commencement Questions - lsuprof
The main ceremony is primarily a recognition of those receiving their doctoral degrees, as well as those receiving special awards (e.g., university medalists with a 4.0 GPA). The commencement speaker also speaks at the main ceremony. The only recognition for graduating undergraduates is that they ar...

re: Choosing to avoid LSU? - lsuprof
LSU has some great programs and some great faculty, and students who enter LSU with a willingness to work hard and get the most out of their LSU experience can get a great education in most fields of study. I have watched many serious students do great things with their LSU education and go on to be...

re: Article/Poll: Americans want government to fight climate change - lsuprof
Look, majorities of Americans think that the climate is changing. Now majorities of Americans think that human activity contributes to climate change, though those numbers have been up and down over the past decade. The key question is whether Americans consider climate change a sufficiently large p...

re: Four of the five losses due to excessive 3pt shots and poor FT shootings! - lsuprof
All I know is that Quarterman missed a wide-open, standing-under-the-basket-with-no-one-around him layup with a bit more than 2 minutes that would have put LSU up by 3. Instead, MSU hurries down the court for a layup and then gets the ball right back for a score to put them up by 3. If Quarterman--w...

re: Republicans should take a softer stance on welfare and the safety net - lsuprof
I don't think that there are many Republicans or conservatives who advocate for an elimination of welfare programs altogether. I suppose that there are a few libertarians who support the complete elimination of these programs, but most Americans (including Republicans and conservatives) recognize th...

re: Hundreds of Christian Churches close in Western Europe-- - lsuprof
There are American churches that conduct missions here in the United States. My children have been on missions both in other countries and here in the U.S., and I get the impression that there are quite a few churches who conduct missions here. These missions are less about proselytizing than about ...

re: Jury awards fired Catholic school teacher $1.9 million - lsuprof

By acknowledging pand approving of time off for the same exact procedure previously, it seems dishonest to fire her for the same procedure. If they held ...

[quote]The Catholic Church is against IVF? Why?[/quote] The Catholic Church considers embryos in general (and certainly those created through IVF) as human beings. IVF is expensive, and often for IVF to work one must create a number of embryos. In many cases multiple embryos are implanted, an...

re: Jury awards fired Catholic school teacher $1.9 million - lsuprof
Is this a "pregnancy-related medical condition"? She was terminated for using in-vitro fertilization, which took place before she was pregnant. Hence the action in question cannot involve a "pregnancy-related medical condition." ...

re: Jury awards fired Catholic school teacher $1.9 million - lsuprof
This is a nice "feel good" message from the jury, but a legislative act--in this case, the 1964 Civil Rights Act--does not overrule the First Amendment right of freedom of religion found in the U.S. Constitution. The Catholic Church, its parishes, and its public schools are protected by the First Am...

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...

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.
