| Political Talk|| IT'S WEDNESDAY! (Ruston version of Zach's weekly post) - Quidam65 on 12/17/14 at 8:54 pm|
Each week I look forward to Zach's weekly post of names that no one should ever name their offspring.
It turns out this week I have the privilege/horror (depending on your POV) of being in Ruston on business.
The local paper (the Ruston Daily Leader) has provided yours truly with some wonderfu...

[quote]Patterson at TCU prepared Andy Dalton to start for the Bengals for several years now.[/quote]
And Boykin probably comes out this year. If Stidham is looking to stay in state, and A&M is not in the running, he should look at TCU. Patterson is one of the best coaches in the Big 12 (and, if...

Same here, and same here.
I'm supposed to travel next week on business (again ok to :rotflmao: here). The sad part is that if I don't make the trip,...

If I may comment as a true outsider (Texas resident).
I agree with many on this board that there are simply too many separate universities in Louisiana covering far too small a population. In addition you have far too much oversight as well.
Here are my suggestions:
1. Louisiana does not ne...

They need to decide by today.
I'm scheduled to travel next week on government business (OK you can insert the :rotflmao: here), but if no funding then the trip is off.
And with the upcoming holidays I'll have to wait until (at the earliest) January 5 before I can reschedule, which screws up m...

From a women's b-ball standpoint UConn would be a good add, Texas is starting to once again become an elite program and Baylor already is.
But for football? For crying out loud they kept SMU from going winless. [b]S. M. U.[/b]...

They were also melting because Daylon plans to take an OV to LSU. Of course if I were a 5* recruit from Texas I'd take a visit there too.
