[quote]I think you mean basketball. That's the dead sport. Playgrounds are full of kids playing baseball in the NOLA area all summer. Pretty sure the same around the country too.[/quote]
Youth baseball has been cut into some by soccer and lacrosse in many areas, but MLB local/regional tv ratings ...

San Antonio (2.3MM) and Austin (1.9MM) are currently growing towards/into each other at a rapid clip.
Surely 4 million plus could and would support a shared team, the only other major pro franchise is the Spurs......

Pretty comfortable in saying that there has never been a college head coach named "Kendal" - seriously who is naming some of these boys these days, some family names were meant to be just that --> family names......

[quote]THIS is was it's all about. If UT wants to expand the BIG12/10, then it will happen. And until UT gets screwed it's not going to happen.[/quote]
Does no Big12/10 team in the playoff cost UT money? That is what they're considering today... ...
| O-T Lounge|| re: Would you rather have Monday or Friday off? - SwatMitchell on 11/21/14 at 3:25 pm|
Mondays off would be best since plenty of people have/take Friday off or take off early - thus crowds, traffic etc if you try to do anything on Friday.
Plus, as mentioned, Fridays tend to be quieter at the office.
Mondays off would make Sundays that much more relaxing......

Out of the 50 or so LSU players in the NFL, only a few (around 5) are OL. This is glaring, especially since Miles played OL at Michigan....

[quote]When will LSU replace the PMAC?[/quote]
I would guess around 2040-45.
It would probably be in conjunction with Mike's next cage, moving the street and eventually bowling upper Tiger Stadium (North End Zone) with more suites - also, the price of oil needs to hit $150/barrel......

I never bet on the Tigers. I am miserable enough when they lose without having to pay up.
Occasionally I have bet against them as an emotional hedge, which only works when they are the favorite (or even). ...
