re: I-12 East totally blocked at Holden, 18-wheeler in the trees, car on fire - tickfawtiger
Well, with an "educated/skilled" driving populace i.e. most of civilized Europe....trucks in rt. lane only, works very well ! Every study I've ever seen,proves you wrong !...

re: Syracuse thoughts on Gameday in Baton Rouge - tickfawtiger
I hope you are correct. Game is still too far out, lots of stuff can happen and IF the Superdome group comes up with enough money to entice them, I would not put it past the LSU Admins. to sell/move the game. Cash is the only thing that seems to matter these days...lol...

I agree with your drivers license complaint...it should not be as easy,thus my comment that most CDL drivers are well trained. However, this does not change the fact that accidents involving trucks{even if the CDL driver is not at fault},cause much more in the way of mayhem, for all concerned = FACT...

re: Preview: LSU vs Ole Miss – Thu 6:30 (ESPNU) | Fri 6:30 (No TV) | Sat 1 (FSN) - tickfawtiger
Speaking of drinking...can anyone explain how Ole Ms and Miss St. fans/students can occupy outfield berms/positions on the outfield fences, and bring/consume their own beverages ? Is the stadium "open" on the outfield side ? University condones the party deck atmosphere ? isn't there some kind of an...

I never implied that trucks were the main culprits in these fireball type wrecks...CDL drivers are better trained than the average yahoo driver. What CAN and WILL limit the number and severity of these accidents is: lower truck speeds 5mph and limit them to the rt. lane ! This has been studied adnau...

re: Syracuse thoughts on Gameday in Baton Rouge - tickfawtiger
You may be right...but, any game that far out,I'd be concerned about ! Remember, the Superdome is looking to join the "neutral site" sweepstakes and I would not put it past Alleva, to sell the game...lol...

re: who is the home team vs wisconsin? - tickfawtiger
FINALLY, someone gets it ! Apparently, from now on any non-conference game that is deemed nationally "attractive", will likely be "shopped" to the neutral site, season opener "bowl sites". Btw. The Superdome is now also in the market for such a game !...

I suggest EVERYONE call their state representatives AND the Governor's office of highway safety...1. Outlaw all trucks from passing lanes, limit them to the rt. lane only and reduce their speed by 5mph....MANY states have done this and if our elected officials would stop taking the truckers' lobby $...

re: Syracuse thoughts on Gameday in Baton Rouge - tickfawtiger
remember when Vandy used to "sell" some of their HOME SEC games ? I think the last one was the home game vs. FL which was played in Jacksonville,FL ! Maybe LSU could get more $ playing an "occasional" SEC home game in the Superdome...say vs. Miss St,Mizzou,Vandy... hell Tiger stadium is never sold o...

Hey, don't blame me...you've convinced me ! ANY ooc home game is "up for sale", I'm just embracing the good news and fully expecting few, if any good/great home OOC games. You should be overjoyed !

Think about it....TCU was originally a home/home, OK was originally a home/home..."future" schedules mean virtually nothing. IF, tv $ comes calling, all "sellable" OOC games are on the table...inmho Don't care if you don't like it...recent history indicates MORE games will be "neutral site" !...

re: Syracuse thoughts on Gameday in Baton Rouge - tickfawtiger
Chances are MORE than good that the Syc. "return" game in 2017 will be "sold" to the N.O. superdome.Based on recent scheduling trends, I don't think Tiger stadium will ever see another good/great OOC opponent. Virtually any ooc opponent that's "sellable" will be moved to a neutral site....very sad...

re: Syracuse-LSU 2015 - tickfawtiger
IF ya'll are 100% correct and all LSU can get for home ooc OR home/away games are these FCS and other "bribery" type opponents....HOW could one explain the stated reluctance to go with a 9 game conference slate ? At least with that schedule one could look forward to ONE additional good game,every ot...

How about a lower level BCS conference member...one that might consider a 2 for 1 arrangement...like an Ind.,Ill,Baylor,Iowa st.,TCU,Cen. FL,USF,Maryland...seems there might be more than a few "up and comers" OR former "players" that might be candidates....

re: Syracuse-LSU 2015 - tickfawtiger
Is this not a "discussion" board....moron, your opinion does not supersede all others ! The COMBINATION, of LSU "selling" ALL of the most recent OOC contests to neutral sites, has RESULTED in the recent home OOC atrocity of scheduling...how can you be so dense to not recognize it ?...

I think that's why they're going to a more "predictable/organized/less questionable" procedure...and good for them and fans i.e. less hankie-pankie with tickets ! Never cared for the old..."get on the waiting list" spiel and then never offering any semblance of a ranking hierarchy list....
