In the 90's, fans asked "How can we be losing with all the talent we have?".
At that time, I always pointed out that our "talented" players were choosing LSU over schools such as Southern Miss.
When players are choosing LSU over the top programs, then you can ask that.
Now, we do have the...

Being an old guy, I remember when Cholly Mac was on his way out, another season ticket holder sitting behind me was always hollering "help Mac pack".
Next year, same guy hollering "bring Mac back".
There will always be many idiots at the games.
I have NEVER left a LSU football or basketba...

Old Milwaukee regular, not light.
10-12 years ago, Consumer Reports did a blind taste test on about 20 bears, including brews such as Heineken. The winner was Old Milwaukee. I tried it and still like it. I also always have on hand 3-4 six packs of seasonals such as Abita, Sierra Nevada, Samuel ...

Yep, the younger generation is definitely spoiled. AM radio was all we had. TV coverage? World series wasn't televised and we and most folks didn't even have a TV yet.
Most folks in my old days were St Louis Cardinal fans.... no Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, or West Coast teams yet.
I am old, bu...

I love Willet Single Barrel, especially considering it's very reasonable cost. In past 18 months, have sipped 3 750's and a 1.75 liter. Have another 1.75 liter that hasn't been opened....

I knew back in day of Derland Moore of the Saints, they were only paid during the season, but didn't realize it was still that way. I knew this because I know the family of Derland's wife....

Yep, 1958 opponent scores
the 18 was given up to Duke and I was there
Bob Brodhead was Duke QB
Dave Sime was Duke "lonesome end" with a 9.3 hundred YARD time to his credit, and was covered by Cannon

I was sitting in the opposite end zone bleachers. When I saw them moving, thought I just had too much to drink. Fortunately, no serious injuries....

Attended both games. In '73, my wife and I were sitting next to a friend, who was a Tulane fan. When the teams came out for the kickoff, Tulane players were high as a kite. LSU players appeared very flat... no jumping up and down... no banging on each others shoulder pads. I told my friend... t...

Yep, I was a freshman with Billy Cannon in 1956 and lived in the old North Stadium on the West side.
Once, I was late for class and when running out of the "dorm", I literaly ran into Paul Dietzel.
Nope, I didn't knock him down since I only weighed about 150 pounds. ...

I was a member of Billy Cannon's freshman class. I may not post much, but I have seen a hell of a lot more LSU games than you young shits. You guys that have thousands of post should get a damn life....
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU Needs New Helmet Design!!! - BayouDayGull on 12/6/12 at 2:55 pm|
LSU has the best looking uniforms, including helmets, in college football. There is no need to change.
Leave entire uniform alone. Don't muck it up as was done with the tiger logo....

I was working in Huntsville, Alabama at the time and attended the 1967 game in Knoxville. Just happened to be seated next to Toby Bourg of Donaldsonville, who I knew. Sammy's brother or father, I'm not sure which, was with Toby. I really think it was his brother. A long time ago. Good game... hea...
