We're spoiled. Pure and simple.
Perhaps LSU needs a new losing streak. Short term impact would suck, but ultimately it would re-energize the fan base. Make them hungry again. Ticket prices would go down and good seats would be available.
Meh. I forgot I said I didn't care anymore. W...

I am officially a victim of the arms race. White flag going up. Gonna have to cut back.

Listened to Phil talking to Chris Childers tonight on XM 91. I like this guy. Former GM of the Browns, knows football. He said that 3 months ago, you could never convince him that Saban would ever leave Bama. Now he's not so sure.
He made a great point. "Saban is a builder, but not a sustain...

This is kinda like when Pope John Paul II died. They just couldn't replace him with another superstar pope. They needed a transitional pope... a caretaker before the next big hire. Enter Benedict XVI, a longtime insider. Nothing revolutionary. He just minded the ship to set things up for the r...

| O-T Lounge|| re: Boys and girls, your tattoos are ugly - Slippy on 11/21/13 at 2:05 pm|
I think making judgments about people is perfectly acceptable under certain circumstances. People who get tattoos universally chalk it up to self expression, which is their right. So when somebody gets a big, flashy or trashy tattoo, one that is highly VISIBLE, they are expressing (loudly) to the...

Article in the Advocate this morning about the efforts underway to improve TOPS and eliminate waste. There was also some suggestion that in 2014 the legislature may revisit giving the colleges more control over tuition. We can only hope.

No. No they don't. My son was a NMF and Alabama offered him a full ride. LSU offered him $2000 on top of TOPS. So it would have cost me several thousand more just to send him to his state flagship.
