This absolutely breaks my heart. I only saw Jamie a couple of times over the past 15 years (!) since I've been gone from LSU. Even though our lives never really had much more than a tangential overlap through mutual friends, he would treat me like I was his long-lost best friend and bend over backw...

I couldn't find a video anywhere, but on the TV replay it was obvious (on replay--not at game speed) that it hit the back of our guy's (Landry? can't remember!) left hand before anything else.

Don't feel bad--I wouldn't have gotten it either if I hadn't seen it in another thread. If you're telling time and the time were 9 to 6 (9 minutes until 6:00), you could say it as 5:51.
ETA: I think the phrase should actually be "9 'til 6" but no one really enunciates the "'til" and it just sor...

[quote]The timing was bad. The fans don't boo if Les Miles runs Jefferson out in a normal situation within the game. Not on the 1 yard line after Lee had just led a drive all the way down the field. It was more timing than anything, whether you want to attempt to discredit that or not.[/quote]

As for the "irresponsible fans" argument, I believe that currently there are stadiums (maybe even West Virginia?) where alcohol sales are allowed, and the student section is partitioned from the rest of the stadium.
Also, wasn't it once against NCAA rules for college venues to sell alcohol? I s...

It's a great trip. I have lots of family in the Knoxville area, so I've probably been to more games in Neyland Stadium than any other besides Tiger Stadium. Their tailgating atmosphere is much different from LSU's because of the design of their campus; it's more like tailgating in downtown Baton R...

The best application of this cheer I've ever heard was before the Georgia game in 2003.

Anyway, she kept missing, and the stud...

Some people touched on it indirectly when talking about being in the South, but I think part of it comes down to having friends or family who went to some of those other schools. If it doesn't affect LSU, I'm inclined to pull by proxy for my the teams my siblings or cousins support.
