Gene chizik came to auburn , had a few moderately successful seasons, then he caught lightning in a bottle with cam. They had a great year, then it became clear that there were deeper issues, he went 8-5, then 3-8, and was fired 2 years after winning a National Championship.
Kevin Sumlin had mo...

Ok. To those of you who believe that "white privilege" is the source of most/all inequality, answer this.
I am a white, happily married, successful, young professional. I have 2 young kids who are happy, healthy, and loved. I worked my butt off to get here, and I am doing well enough that I ...

All on the way and worth a look.

Fallen oak is also great. ...

Jabari smith funk dunk to end the half against Number 1 Arizona at the PMAC en route to a win. I think it was the '00-'01 season. ...

As a surgeon, I have always felt that if you don't possess the knowledge and skills to treat/fix damn near all possible scenarios, complications, and curveballs you may encounter during the procedure, then you probably shouldn't be doing the procedure in the first place.
Without knowing much abo...

1. Depending on what your trying to accomplish, bucks should be either 8 or better OR one lesser buck per member (+ cull bucks)
2. If possible, discourage shooting of young 8 pt's.
3. If you want to allow guests, they should have more stringent rules. (I.e. does and 140+ only) or somethin...

2 things have happened:
1. The thread has been hijacked by Veldt.
2. Y'all are misunderstanding what the 20% indicates. What I'm saying is that if average health care costs (not insurance costs, actual costs) for the average person are more than the average person is willing to spend on healt...

I am not referring to coverage or insurance.
I am saying that if the average american can not afford to pay out of pocket for what the average american requires/receives in health care benefits then the whole system is bound to fail one way or...

Any and all types of health care reform are doomed to fail unless the "average citizen" , I.e. median income, is able to afford non-catastrophic health care costs for their family as an out of pocket expense.
True or false. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Wow. Can't believe Loston didn't get drafted. - tomcatrav on 5/10/14 at 6:29 pm|
I always felt Loston could be a successful OLB in a 3-4.
He would need to put on a few lb's, but he always did a pretty good job against the run. And while his coverage skills were limited as a safety, he would do better than most OLB's, and his speed would be a definite plus.

I have the Sako A7 long range in 25-06. Absolutely love it. 1200-1300 at cabelas.
I had a tikka t3 lite in 7 mag. Ok gun, but kicked like a mule. Too lite in my opinion for that caliber.

Losing ego and freak certainly hurts, but please remember that we had 7 dt's on the depth chart (AJ, EF, CL, QT, MJ, MB, FH) and only 4 of those got any real playing time.
All of these guys are highly talented, and now they all have had another year in the system.
The way I see it, we have ...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Morning vs afternoon hunts regarding deer tendencies - tomcatrav on 12/31/13 at 11:41 am|
Hunted for years in St Franciscille, now I hunt swamp around thibodaux. IMHO, given the option, I always try to woods in the AM and fields in the PM.
That being said, I have seen more bucks on morning hunts, but more does on PM hunts.
Nice thread. Good posts.
