re: Macro Econ: Low gas prices -> higher disposable income -> higher spending / GDP? - AlexLSU
I read an article in the WSJ a month or so back that compared the effect of $40 oil on different GDPs. While it crushes countries like Russia and Saudi Arabia, the U.S. GDP grows the most significantly. Obviously can't link a paid article, but there's similar stuff out there with opposing views...

re: It's time for Johnny Jones to take a long look in the mirror - AlexLSU
[quote]This LSU team just doesn't have the talent to make a run this year. Most on here blame Jones but the truth is Mickey and Martin aren't that talented. The guards we have are nothing special. We just ain't got the horses. This team is overachieving not underachieving [/quote] Yeah, we're los...

re: We have a 12 page thread about a maybe, lets give franks love! - AlexLSU
I don't get threads like this. Franks committed in the summer; Shea commits today. Which storyline is more intriguing presently? And it's not like Franks is reading this board daily, so you don't have to worry about showering him with e-attention to combat threads on other QBs...

re: Ben Simmons taking up for Johnny Jones - AlexLSU
Good sign that Simmons wants to take up for his coach, but Jones coaches like a clown. He refuses the call timeouts when his team is losing momentum, or at a crucial juncture in the game. His team lacks basic fundamentals. How many times have we failed to inbound the ball, or box a man out, or ma...

re: My strategy when oil bottoms - AlexLSU
[quote]I got vde at it's bottom[/quote] It was at $102 on 1/15 and is up to almost $113 today. There was a similar surge in December where it hit a low of roughly $104 on 12/15 before shooting up to $114 around Christmas. I don't know what to think at this point. There's certainly been a n...

re: per DD -- LSU offers 3* OT Mike Arnold. What do y'all think? - AlexLSU
What do I think? I think it's a last-minute reach for a guy we don't really want because Grimes can't close on the kids we do want. That's two straight years without recruiting a polished tackle prospect and shows the importance of signing homegrown guys like Cam Robinson and Tillery. ...

re: Kobe Bryant - torn rotator cuff - AlexLSU
I love that Kobe is always promoting that Body Armor drink shite even when he's posting about his body breaking down. "Guys I'm out for the year with a fricked up shoulder. Drink Body Armor though!" He owns almost as much equity as the founders and reportedly invested $5 million in it over the su...

[quote]I don't see why I would patent this thing though. Neither do I have any interest in making more tables, nor am I a US citizen. It's a cool idea though!

re: Johnny Jones is a good recruiter who can't coach - AlexLSU
We look like an AAU team. No offensive rhythm, totally relient on iso ball late in games, coach doesn't seem to reprimand players for stupid plays, etc. We're an undisciplined group of athletes with a nice guy coach that can't make adjustments late in games. We were horrendous down the stretch an...

re: Les Miles' Use of Running Backs over 10 Years - AlexLSU
Good post, although you'll get more responses if you remove the facts and insert more retarded speculation I feel like Les and Frank will always gravitate to rotating backs, but like you mentioned, they'll ride a guy situationally. I'd say our five biggest games this season were @ Auburn, @ Flor...
