SEC Rant
re: Who will be at the current position longest: Mullen, Freeze, or Muschamp? - Scoob
Mullen. As long as he stays at or above .500 he's safe. I figure Freeze has 2 or so years left, based on Ole Miss history: he'll either flop and get canned, or do well and get hired by someone willing to pay more. Muschamp's on the hot seat, IMO. He needs to win (or at least challenge) for the E...

[quote]You are entitled to disagree but, even after your essay[/quote]fair enough. It was a long-ass post :lol: To the original question: no. Saban would not reach championship levels at Kentucky, Vandy, or Miss St (might get close there). Ole Miss is an interesting question, seems like they can...

re: Les Miles, how great is he... The Best LSU has ever had - Scoob
Saban at Bama is better than Miles at LSU. Saban while at LSU was another story. Being outcoached is a criticism of Miles, but people tend to forget some of Saban's miscues. Take the Virginia Tech game in 2002; Beamer played Saban with that. Our opener and on the road, vs a good team that went a...

What a mess. Hate to sound judgmental or anti-gun (I own some myself), but it does sound pretty sketchy. This "birthday party" sounds like a major event, not very spontaneous (leaving the state et al), and so you figure she already was making these plans when she bought the gun... wouldn't you have ...

re: Has anybody ever been "delayed" in trying to purchase a gun? - Scoob
I've been delayed a couple of times; the first time it really made me feel pretty bad (like I'd done something wrong). Seriously. I talked with the guy at my local gun shop, and he and I figured out what it might be... I once worked in a field where I had to be fingerprinted in an extensive back...

re: The Army wants a harder-hitting pistol - Scoob
How about the CZ platform? Get a CZ-85 or SP-01, and you have about the ideal military weapon. DA/SA, all-steel frame (Sig and Beretta are aluminum, the others polymer); will take the beating from .40 or .45 a lot better over time. External safety and slide release are similar to 1911, and you c...

re: Fastest LSU football players ever - Scoob
We've seen a bunch of fast guys here. Most were "football fast" (Devery, Carlos Carson, etc), but Trindon and Xavier were just stupid-fast compared to the other guys on the field.
