[quote]First off, I refuse to believe the bolded portions above are true, unless they are using a very broad and liberal definition of "transgendered."[/quote]
Those numbers seem incredibly high. But hey, maybe we have 15,000+ Corporal Klinger's running around our military bases and combat zones...

IF it is drugs then the said thing is that he's likely not going to stop. He'll only try to figure out a better way to not get caught. Really, if you're a talented player what's the disincentive? ...

[quote]Stupid California. A lot of innocent young men will be thrown in prison because a girl feels guilty for being a slut.
How would they even prove if she consented in the bedroom? Nobody is there watching to see if she says "yes" or nods her head.
This won't solve anything but it'll caus...

[quote]So less parking, less mass transit and more people will be in the stadium? This is goin to be great. [/quote]
Exactly. CATS to the game was generally a clusterfrick. There was no real route back and forth from the stadium, and loading after the game was horribly inefficient. That said, it w...

Many students would rather stay at the tailgate and drink and party than actually attend the game. 20-30 years ago (for the most part) if you wanted to see the game, you had to go in. Now with every game on TV, it's not necessary. ...

1. South Carolina has almost 2 million more people than Miss.

I wouldn't bet the house on LSU, but I wouldn't be shocked if they won by more than 5. (I know that doesn't help)
LSU should have a big-time O-Line, but they are replacing a 3,000 yard passer, Two 1,000 yard WRs, and a 1,500 yard RB. That's a ton of production gone. Too many question marks on ...
