Boring =/= bad. Iowa has a really good defense and will be a tough matchup for a QB starting his first game. That doesn't change the fact that they are a boring Big10 team that plays al...

Cotton Bowl is a sexier matchup in closer proximity to LSU's heaviest alumni bases, so traveling is easier. Iowa is a boring team, but the bowl is certainly better than the Gator or Chicken Sandwich. ...

Yeah, because there's only 25 LSU/A&M-caliber players in Texas and none of them have roots connecting them to other programs.
Congrats on the stupid post, though

Arkansas always presents us with a tough challenge, and this year's team is no different.
Arkansas is incredibly balanced when it comes to sucking cock on offense and taking it up the arse on defense. Truly a testament to the young women that suit up each and every game for the pigs. I expect A...

The Nick Saban brand speaks for itself these days. Any program that he chooses to go to has instant credibility and will be able to recruit. If you get great players, you'll typically succeed. It's no coincidence that Bama consistently finishes #1 in the recruiting rankings and win...

Shea has been close to making his pick for Adoree as well. I believe we are still the only visit that both parents attended (which is a 10+ hour drive), and our willingness to accommodate multi-sport athletes has to help. Adoree expressed interest in LSU well over a year ago too, so we've been on ...
