[quote]Maybe I'm not a true fan, because this toonces thing was way beyond my level of "giving a crap".[/quote]
You may not be a true fan. Toonces was a total embarrassment to LSU fans. I’ve talked to so many LSU fans who have avoided buying toonces items, but would have purchased non-toonces m...

Nice pic, but that car is a 1957 model..I think Auburn won the FB title that year. I would like to see this car in the Coronado Yellow color offered by Chevrolet in 1957.
Other than those minor issues, the car looks outstanding! ...

Ags, you should be aware that USC has claimed the 1939 football national championship. Several years ago they added the year 1939 to their list of national championships painted in big numbers on the outside of their football stadium. Apparently, someone working at their school discovered th...

I probably have 15 hats, 25 shirts, several pajama sets, etc. I wear the stuff all the time & I would own a lot more clothing if more non-toonces items were avaialble. It's just so hard to find things without toonces. I've been told the same thing by dozens of other fans who feel the same way. ...

I'm not surprised that the current Tiger players don't care about logos too much, but the number of current players are insignificant compared to the sea of LSU fans worldwide who want to wear LSU gear that looks good. I hear from fans all the time who would purchase/wear a lot more LSU gear absent...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Toonces vs. the Eye - in TX - Black Bengal on 1/29/12 at 12:07 pm|
Actually, disdain for toonces is not only on the Rant. I know many LSU fans in the Houston area & in La. who probably rarely or never spend time on the Rant & don't like toonces. It doesn't take a lot of insight or intuition to realize that toonces is a silly, childish logo that doesn't do justice...

I appreciate the hard work done by the LSUAA in TX. I have 2 vehicles with the toonces plates. Those I guess were the only LSU plates approved by the university back then. I hope the LSUAA can now switch its plate to the Eye. After seeing an Eye plate yesterday, I'm switching both of mine from t...

Toonces is an embarrassing childish logo.

Let's see how the crowd reacts. Every LSU fan has his/her logo p...

I understand the negative feelings toward Mizzou, but you have to understand that the school does have potential athletically. They have a decent sized fanbase & decent sized TV market.
I don't know why Mizzou was not accepted by the Big 10. It would have been a great fit IMHO. ...
