You need a TD, a FG and to conserve clock. Anywhere on the field is TD range. You should take the FG as soon as it's a reasonable distance in that situation. Always. ...

| More Sports Board|| re: TCU/Baylor - MarcusQuinn on 12/5/14 at 10:42 pm|
So head to head doesn't matter. Until it matters. Say Oregon completely outplays Bama in the playoffs. Double the yardage, time of possession and just clearly the dominant team. But they get a tipped ball pick 6. A TD called back on a bogus penalty and fumble twice inside the 10 before losing by 1 p...

And yes. Corndogs are unusually delicious. I usually drop a few in the hot oil after frying my turkey for Thanksgiving. Wait. LSU vs A&M on Thanksgiving Day. Corndogs on Thanksgiving Day. Maybe it IS true. ...
| SEC Rant|| re: corndogs - MarcusQuinn on 10/17/14 at 3:47 pm|
I just said "that's why the LSU fan base seems bothered". There is a difference between being bothered and being insulted. Go back and read it again. Read it slowly. Sound out the words and follow along the lines with your finger. See. That's insulting. Maybe both. ...
| SEC Rant|| re: corndogs - MarcusQuinn on 10/17/14 at 3:36 pm|
LSU fans are not mad about being called corndogs. Nobody takes it personally because it doesn't really apply to anything associated with LSU. Other fan bases seem to have made it up from thin air and decided LSU fans must be offended by it. It's like repeatedly calling a guy with a full head of hair...

I have read this a few times as though this means they didn't really lose their front 7. But if the backups took equal snaps last year, you would ass...

We could stop posting about it, but we are not. I suggest you stop reading about it until the timing of the discussion is more to your liking.

Looks like they might be looking at a few days of heavy snow followed by sub-zero weather through SB Sunday. My, oh my:
The National Weather Service suggests the coldest portion of the outbreak could be between Jan. 28 and Feb 2 – the day of the Super Bowl.
Currently, the National Weather Serv...

To equate the number of posts with a poster's level of knowledge is just pathetic. If we ever hire a new coach or GM I sure hope they check the number of posts on "Pelican Talk" first. Under 20 and they are likely complete idiots. ...
| More Sports Board|| re: Has anybody ever polled American Indians about "The Redskins"? - MarcusQuinn on 10/29/13 at 7:41 pm|
I think a major point being missed here is that the nickname is based on an exaggerated physical feature. It's not a tribe name, title or noble trait. It's a stereotype. It's the same as calling a certain demographic the "Big Noses," or "Pointy Heads," or "Green Teeth." That is very different than b...

Absent the spin, speculation and hyperbole it's really pretty simple.

Gary Patterson wants to win so he doesn't want Hill to play.

I watched an "SEC Stories" (or something like that) on Sam Bowie. The production quality was not on par with 30 for 30, but my son and I really enjoyed it. I only knew the storyline about him being a bust and that Portland was foolish not to select Jordan. After learning the real story, I'm never ca...
