A gentleman and a model of steady, measured consistency, day after day after day. A lot of respect for him in many areas -- and sad to hear of his passing. R.I.P....

re: how do you pronounce alex box - Carl Dubois
Yes, but that quote comes from a nephew who never met his more famous uncle, who died before he was born. The brother who grew up with Alex Box said "Elec" as many times as he said "Alex" in the interviews I did with him. You can find supporting evidence in the family for any of three pronunciati...

re: how do you pronounce alex box - Carl Dubois
I was just talking about this last week with someone in Oregon who graduated from LSU, and he sent me the link to this thread. Small world. Here is a section of a much longer piece I did in 2008 for The Advocate. I'm sure the full version is available in the paper's online archives for anyone who ca...

I was not on Jimmy Ott's show the day after...

re: Chris Jackson...I was blessed to see him play... - Carl Dubois
In winter 1987, I covered a game in Lake Charles between Gulfport High School and Washington-Marion in the Popeyes Classic. This was, I think, the first year of the 3-point line in high schools. Maybe the second. Washington-Marion was reigning 3A state champion, having defeated the St. Thomas More t...

re: Dandy Don questions his longevity - Carl Dubois
I would encourage everyone who's ever looked at his site to send Don words of support during this very different (for him) holiday season. He was always a gentleman to me, kind and courteous, cut from a different cloth than many of the shouters making so much noise and saying nothing. Don loves LSU,...

re: Column: The case for Jarrett Lee - Carl Dubois
[quote][i]Maybe that's all Miles thinks they need. It's worked for many championship teams: Play strong defense, have a solid kicking game, and don't beat yourself on offense. This team has too many weapons to have to settle for that. The Tigers can open things up with Lee if they take a chance a...

re: I'll miss Carl Dublog's baseball coverage. - Carl Dubois
Thanks for the kind words, everyone. As for the reference to Randy earlier, he's a workhorse and as dogged and determined as anyone I know. I can't imagine he's ever missed anything or failed to provide the most thorough coverage possible. He'll be a tough act to follow if he ever leaves. I shoul...

Tulane vs. LSU: First ... and last? - Carl Dubois
[i]LSU and Tulane will play football against each other for the 98th time Saturday. LSU's game notes say the Tigers lead the series 68-22-7. Tulane's game notes say it's 66-24-7. At least they agree about who won 88 of the 90 games that had a winner. The first game between the schools was the ...

The Miles way: Secure victory, then sub - Carl Dubois
There's little to suggest Les Miles sees LSU's game Saturday against Tulane the way many do, as a glorified practice or scrimmage. That's not a term many coaches want associated with them, especially in the world of the virtual bulletin board. Two years ago -- before LSU played Louisiana Tech, if...

re: Billy Cannon Punt Return - Carl Dubois
Did Kinchen play offense, defense and special teams? Cannon intercepted a pass earlier in the game. I have to think he was a little more tired than Kinchen was when Kinchen scored on his return. Cannon was LSU's punter for most of the season (44 punts, 40.3 avg.), was the main kick returner (eigh...

Auburn-LSU: Miles wants better execution - Carl Dubois
There is a reason it's called "Check with me" and not "Check with everybody." A quarterback and his offensive teammates go to the line of scrimmage and look to the sideline for signals, real ones and decoys, for an updated play call based on the defense's alignment. They are checking with a repre...

Thanks for the response. Every day I stand by what I write. It comes with putting my name on it, and it will always be on the Internet for all to see.
