I had that done a few years ago, the term my dentist used was "planing and scaling". It was probably as close to medieval torture as I can imagine. It was my fault, years of neglect led to it being r...

[quote]I think Pville was tops in the parish for Primary school score wise. [/quote]
According to the state web site, OG had a 109.3, Pville had a 105 last year. Both scores are top notch in that system, so I doubt there's a ton of difference.
I've got a 7th grader at Pville Middle, and she's i...

Just a heads up, at 12:30 the weekly press conference will be available on the SEC Network + channel on the WatchESPN app. It's not on the TV, or the main SEC Network online channel, only on the [b]+[/b] channel. In fact, there will be 7 press conferences on today, and 5 will be on tomorrow. Unfo...

[quote]So can nobody explain how exactly the SEC is holding him up if the NCAA cleared him?[/quote]
Same way Phil Loadholt couldn't transfer to LSU from JUCO a few years ago but he could get in at Oklahoma. SEC has it's own rules/regulations in regards to eligibility that a player must adhere to, ...

Which is why Hannagrif's Gonzales rumor makes sense. Has an axe to grind with LSU, was probably recruited by Gonzales since he's a Florida area guy,...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Valentine Update: Cleared by the NCAA not by the SEC - OldManRiver on 8/21/14 at 7:38 pm|
FWIW, Hannagrif was talking about this today on his show, and he said the rumors were that it was Billy Gonzales at State that was the source of the problem. Apparently Gonzales still recruits Florida like he did for us, and he's pissed at Les/LSU for being let go....

[quote]A team is limited to 29 sessions of fall camp practice (220.127.116.11). Each session can be a maximum of 3 hours.

I guess it's pretty easy to be a recruiting "reporter" these days. Make a prediction about a player's decision, state unequivocally you are right, and then when you're wrong just tweet out

What's interesting to me is that for the New Mexico State game there will be maybe 80,000 people in the stands at kickoff, and absolutely 0% excitement before or during the game. 1/2 the crowd that does show up will leave at halftime, and it will take an OBJ missed FG type of play to get people exc...

I think the admin is completely backwards on what they are tying to accomplish. I feel like their decisions are based on the concept of eliminating all the "extra" people who tailgate so the "football fans" can get on campus, park, and get out easy. What they don't seem to understand is the number...

That's hard to see considering Ole Miss runs a pass-heavy spread and we're definately going to lean on the run. I don't see Dupre getting 4-5 extended laterals a game like Treadwell did last year
This I can see just b/c of Dupre's big...
