[quote]Worst LSU Game You Ever Attended[/quote]
Notre Dame, '97. Temps in the 20s by halftime and we got absolutely murdered 24-6. Our 6 points was via a garbage time TD with 6:35 to go in the game. Only redeeming grace was that we eventually went on to beat ND's arse in the Indy Bowl later tha...

The YouTube video skips the "LSU-LSU" chants that erupted (starting in the student section) after the 93 yd screen pass TD that UGA scored to tie the game with about 4 minutes to go. One of my favorite moments as a fan was sitting in the student section as this began and then took off through the w...

[quote]What was the worst season in Tiger Football History?[/quote]
If it pertains to disappointments, the worst season has to be the '98 season. We entered the season ranked #7 and then proceeded to go 4-7. This was the first year of the famed Lou Tepper "Drop Linebacker" defense. I was a stu...

Of course I am biased, but the answer has to be the BUFF. The AF currently plans to keep the BUFF around until 2040, but the airframe could last well into the 2050s which would be over 100 years of service. The newest BUFF rolled off the Wichita, KS assembly line in Sept 1962 making all of the cur...
