This is the biggest difference between LSU fans and other schools - especially Bama. Most other fan bases don't even recognize other sports.
In 97 I asked a Bama friend if he wanted to watch the CWS CG -- he didn't even know Bama was playing, mu...

I'm trying to find the Nike version of the coach's polo w/ the BCS patch. the only one i've seen so far is Cutter & Buck. Nike produced a limited number in 2003 (which weren't available to the public) and 2007 (which I missed out on).
Anybody seen them anywhere?...

With the new NFL rules, there's a difference between "1st Round" and "Top 10" picks, but at least the difference is more realistic.
It's not like they would be able to negotiate a huge salary/bonus like Jamarcus did.
But the risk of injury may be the difference between a salary or ...

Actually, they claim 13. Has anyone else picked up that this is the number on the helmet they use for logos, memorabilia, and even the ESPN set?
Check the tape - they had #12 up to and including the BCSCG against Texas. After that they changed to 13.

Well, one way to stop it would be to blow up the WR running the pick. A full-speed hit from Mo or Reid will make them think twice about it.
Technically, it's legal, and I've seen players use the Umpire on this as well. If the DB sells it, he could get the call for offensive interference - but i...

The plain truth is what Bear accomplished (more importantly HOW he accomplished it) will probably never be duplicated.
As I recall, Bama would give full scholarships to 4-star recruits just so they couldn't play for others. Scholarship limits are taking care of that one.
Bama played on TV 2-3...

A. We haven't seen the full-bore Jet Sweep this year at all. RS in motion, full speed at the snap. I actually like the "touch pass" I've seen Okie St and others use off this play - it counts as a pass so if there's a problem on the exchange it's an incomplete pass not a fumble.
B. How about a p...

The last time LSU lost on turf was the last time LSU lost.
I have to really dig out the way-back machine to find the last time we lost indoors, though.
I think we lost at Tulane in 1981 or 1982, but I can't think of another indoor loss since then....

Just to be clear, I was referring to CBS promoting the SEC CG using footage of TM7 and UGA QB Aaron Murray. Those are obviously current players.
Agree w/ you on the video games - I deleted that from my post because of SASS on the Rant (Short Attention Span Syndorme). :lol:

I worked w/ the alumni association. We would raffle off memorabilia to support scholarships. But we couldn't sell/raffle anything w/ a currennt player's name, likeness, or autograph. On the LSU website, check the compliance tab for the restrictions on personal apppearance and autograph requests.

Better on D, worse on offense, but not by a lot.

They had two weeks to prepare, and had film of both LSU and Bama rolling all over the UF defense.
So they decide to throw the ball around? They almost lost that game because of it. Poor game-pla...
