I have seen it, at best a 5.0 on a 10 scale.
I picked it up from a Russian outlet 2 months ago, with sub titles.
All the other Stalingrad movies made so far are better than this one....

There was no question on the face mask, the question was the right guard and right tackled moved. The far side line judge (USC side) did appear to throw a flag just play stated.
I saw the facemask and saw that flag thrown also.
U-19 is in the Southeastern upper deck part of the stadium.

The 1979 game was the first football game ESPN broadcast and there were 3 teams of announcers:

Glenn Dorsey was missed used by KC in the pros, putting him head to head with the center. Glenn is a gap type player.
Williams was never hurt like Glenn at LSU and has had a far better NFL career, but those is apples and oranges; this is at LSU.

Ask the USC team of 1979 what was the one game that stood out in their mind; they will answer like Ronnie Lott said: "LSU 1979"
I have Espn version and USC version of the game on DVD.
I am missing the LSU broadcast team version....

Y.A. Tittle does not have the stats to be the number 1 QB.
In the 4 games against Tulane produced near 1/3 of his stats, that is yardage, and completions.
Y.A. played 4 years at LSU as the starting QB.
A.J. Duhe played DL at LSU not LB.

Apocalypto is a good movie, it is based on a better movie The Naked Prey.

Casablanca up 2 to 2
High Noon went up 1 when I dropped Birth of a Nation down, then moved down 1 to 3
Seven Samurai up 2 to 6
Searchers up 3 to 10

Sandperson the teams before where Saints, trust me Mac had his fair share of thugs. The fights in the 60's and 70's are legendary. But the history of players with hot tempers and short fusses doesn't start even then, we had a nice number of them even in 30's-50's.
Our roster is not fine by any me...
| Tiger Rant|| re: The "Dark Ages" of LSU Football - tigger1 on 1/5/14 at 1:23 pm|
The problem at LSU was LSU plain and simple...
you had a group of older alumina who had friends and these groups wanted more control.
Bob was a step in the right direction, but he had stepped on to many of the "good ole boys" piece of the pie.
Bill was never going to stay at LSU in any way ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Tiger fans who think Bama is so far ahead of us - tigger1 on 1/2/14 at 11:44 pm|
If Alabama plays Georgia when they would have back in Sept, it would likely have been a lose. This is before Georgia loses all the players and is a top 10 team, Alabama at that time was still struggling to get is offensive line and dbs in order.
LSU was going to Kentucky which very likely a win.

Never going to happen, as FSU is the dominate team in the ACC.
Also Georgia and Florida rejected FSU idea already.
FSU 15 year run at top 5 finishes is only because they were in the very weak ACC, and 60% of their loses at that time comes from the SEC teams and Miami.

Young was a heavy drinker and had a temper, this is why he was not a starter at LSU.

He had world class talent for football, but was in trouble many times at LSU.
