RollTide1987 you are correct, that historian is saying there was never a list, then puts up facts already known about Oscar.
The list was real and had corrections, I have seen 2 orginals of the list and both were attested to by those that were there.

In fact without the transfers from when SMU gets nailed, we could have had a losing season in 88.
Young and Harmon fill a large need in the lb and db corps.

What we call the pre code starts in the late silent era, in the early 1920's, before sound pictures.
Themes of these movies included: sexual innuendo, miscegenation, profanity, illegal drug use, promiscuity, prostitution, infidelity, abortion, intense violence, and homosexuality.
And as I pos...

Remember many of the pre code movies were darkened in places to hide the see through cloths wore by some actresses in those movies. So you have to get a copy of the movie that was lightened back to post code copies.

Turn is based on a true story and to me is better than Game of Thrones (mainly due to plot cuts and streamlining the story to fit 1 book into 10 episodes).
Do not look up the story as you will find out what happens to everyone....

LSU in Mac's day had it's fair share of cream puffs on it's schedule.
We played Baylor, Rice, Tulane a lot when Mac first became LSU's head coach. Rice was a good team when he first became coach, but by 1965 it wasn't the same team.
Texas A&M came to our schedule, but was more of a 2nd tear te...

Lester was told by the NCAA investigator that if he didn't turn in LSU, the NCAA would ban him.
Also during this time the Kansas coaches are on the phone with Lester, trying to steal him form LSU and saying the NCAA was after Brown and you do not want to be in their spotlight. Kansas broke more t...
