re: What Is This Board's Opinion of Springsteen? - dimet
I read/heard an interesting description of the Dylan/Springsteen argument. Penn Jillette stated that "Dylan's lyrics were about him (Dylan) and Springsteen's lyrics were about us." Listen to the albums "Nebraska" or "Tunnel of Love" or "The Ghost Of Tom Joad" to truly hear great writing. "Meeting Ac...

re: Walter Hill has died in Lafayette - dimet
Walter Hill and John Ferguson were such a part of my childhood. Watching Mr. Hill on WBRZ sports or the midday show with Jean Wheeler or listening to him on Saturday nights from Tiger Stadium made growing up in BR a special time. My prayers are with your family...God Bless...

re: What was it like growing up in America in those days - dimet
The zeal of the post war 50's was certainly tarnished by the assassinations of JFK, MLK,Jr., RFK, the horrid realities of the Viet Nam war, and the inabilities for our laws to recognize the black man as the white man's equal directly led to the negative change in the 60's. Look at the disparity in s...

re: I've been diagnosed with glioblastoma - dimet
My oldest brother passed away from glioblastoma multiforme in 2012. He battled it for 13 months. His desire to live was an amazing, inspiring thing to witness. This disease stripped away the facade of the lives we live everyday. It exposed what is truly vital and important in our lives. You've chose...

re: A thought concerning the defensive scheme... - dimet
If you go 0 or 1, man coverage, you are under the assumption that your guys are better than their guys. If a spread offense sees you in man, motions and stacked formations and bunch formations come into play. This is even more complicated for the secondary because assignments change based on formati...

re: How would Bo Rein have done? - dimet
Please note that every coach on Coach Stovall's staff his first 2 years were Bo Rein guys. Coach Nix joined the staff in year 2 of Coach Stovall's tenure as an OL coach while Mac Brown replaced Bob Gatling as OC and Coach Nix replaced Greg Williams as DC before year 3. Rein was a split backfield ve...

re: Just met Bert Jones!! - dimet
There is a great Bert Jones story from his day...Jones bet Rusty Jackson, the punter,that he could throw the ball further up the TS bleachers than Jackson could kick it. Legend holds that on the pressbox side that Jackson got it to the 10th row from the top while Jones got it to the 3rd row from the...

re: for the old-timers - the end of the Jim Smith era - dimet
The problem was that the best players were wearing football uniforms. Jay Blass was the player of the year in NO and he never played baseball. Kent Nicar was drafted by the Yankees, Bob Lane and John Ed Bradley were both all state and NONE of these even guys sniffed a baseball field. Coach Mac was a...

Andolsek was no way, shape or form, thuggish. I started LSU in '77 and the Art Cantrelle stories are mythic...and the poster concerning Greg Cook is spot on. The greatest Cookieman story is the night he borrowed Coach Mac's golf cart and drove it around campus that night! The Campus police found it ...

re: For the old-timers...when did Cholly Mac first get on the hot seat? - dimet
The slippery slope began with Mike Miley choosing pro baseball over LSU football at the start of the '74 season. LSU had implemented the veer offense to fit the talents of both Miley and Carl Otis Trimble. It just wasn't successful. The '77 recruiting class was the class that many felt would put Coa...

re: Tommy Casanova on Cholly Mac - dimet
The recruiting game is far different in 2012 than it was in 1975. LSU recruited regionally during Coach Mac's tenure. Today, a program must recruit nationally to be successful. Early recruiting was not in place during Coach Mac's tenure. Also, the top athletes wanted to come to LSU. That seemed the ...

re: high school football coaching info - dimet
With your engineering hours, consult your academic adviser and ascertain what would apply to a math/science specialty area. PE and Social Studies are the predominant majors for coaches so those slots are limited. Once you gain a certification in your math/science area, you can find a job most anywhe...
