re: New state law requires all ticketed events to be taxed- including athletics - Guava Jelly
[quote]A family making $100k is not spending a materially lower proportion of income than a family making $40k.[/quote] Unless you're talking about a family of 8 or more people, $40k is well above the Federal Poverty Level. For an average family size (4-5 people) $25k is the rough poverty level. ...

re: New state law requires all ticketed events to be taxed- including athletics - Guava Jelly
[quote]I would say this is debatable, but not as it pertains to this discussion. [/quote] I don't think there is a debate at all. Unlike other types of taxes, the rate is not commensurate with income or holdings. It is the same for everyone. While the poor may not buy items that are as expensive...

[quote]No bodies require embalming according to Louisiana law (RS37:848), they only require embalming OR refrigeration if they aren't buried or cremated in 30 hours. And nearly every morgue has the ability to refrigerate a body. [/quote] How about a fun fact alert next time. Seriously, that's ...

re: LSU coach Les Miles brought to tears by commitment from QB Myles Brennan - Guava Jelly
First of all, he was saying what he could to stroke the kid's ego. Coaches say that kind of thing and more to land bigtime recruits every day. He also didn't say that the offense wasn't going to change. He said when the players are capable of executing, they would change. As for this season...

[quote]This makes me fuching sick. [/quote] :lol: Which part? He's 100% right about LF being the best player on the team. And he's 100% right to want to get him the ball as often as possible. Not that difficult a concept....

[quote]If my boss told me I wasn't performing at the level expected of me I wouldn't put my two weeks in. I'd show him what I'm capable of.[/quote] This. For all Miles's faults (both perceived and actual), he knows what he's doing on the recruiting trail. To parse his words in this context is ab...

re: rise of the second string DL - Guava Jelly
[quote]Herron and Gilmore[/quote] Both will get reps, but Godchaux is going to benefit the most. He is going to be a nightmare for a whole bunch of centers and guards. Then when they start double-teaming him, the DEs, OLBs and DBs are going to eat from the outside. This defense is going to be di...

[quote]It's 36-16 and 3-1 in bowls vs 37-14 and 2-2 in bowls. [/quote] Conveniently leaving out that 0-4 H2H record, 20-12 to 17-15 SEC record, average recruiting class rank of 6.2 for LSU and 12 for TAMU. All while LSU had two consecutive down seasons. :lol: [quote]Because he has achieved [b]...

re: Kevin Sumlin - Guava Jelly
I'm going to ignore career hardware. Not even worth a comparison. Looking at JUST the last four years Les has more wins (overall and SEC), fewer losses (overall and SEC), a consistently higher ranking (overall and SEC), and better recruiting than Sumlin. Not to mention the fact that he is 0-4 aga...

re: Kevin Sumlin - Guava Jelly
[quote] Our school and state have money. This isn't LSU. We're not ashamed of spending this much on a coach because our university system and state can actually pay the light bill.[/quote] :lol: This is why the logic doesn't make sense. You thump your chest as a fiscal conservative, yet you...

re: Tips for visiting fan to Baton Rouge - Guava Jelly
Most of the above are solid answers. To append them with my own: 2. NOLA is the way to go. Don't get spooked by all the "murder city" chatter. If you use your head and you don't get hammered and put yourself in a dangerous situation, you'll be fine. 5. We would be remiss if we didn't mention t...
