[quote]Excellent point. Clearly, without a QB in 2004 we were destined for a down year. However, the 2005-2007 teams at LSU were loaded with talent. Who knows what Saban could have done with that? Maybe LSU would have won 3 in 4. Or maybe even 4 in 5.[/quote]

Most heterosexual males find the thought of gay sex repulsive. Note that I said gay sex, not gay people.

Being a subjective thing, baseball scorekeeping is not an exact science. An official scorer has leeway to change a judgment call after a game has ended, and is supposed to give the benefit of doubt to the batter when unsure about a ruling. I've seen changed rulings with fast runners -- example: the ...
