[quote]Tailgate at Rice and then drive to Reliant. Problem solved.[/quote]
I was thinking about something like this - tailgate at Rice (trees, campus instead of a parking lot, etc) and take the rail to Reliant. Avoid parking at Reliant and have a better place to tailgate....

And didn't Fury have a bad outing his last time, too? What are we doing?? We should always have a second guy ready to go when we are pitching by committee - I don't get it. :banghead:...

I don't know which is more frustrating - our base running or our hitting - I guess when we don't hit, we don't notice the problems with base running….sigh. And yet another out due to base running. Seriously???

Great job, Matt Flynn! ForeverLSU...

Not important - to me, it's as much about the best media blitz as it is the best player. Seems like more a distraction than a benefit to the team as a whole. ...
| More Sports Board|| re: So how would the four team playoff work if it were in place this year? - cafeaulait19 on 12/8/13 at 6:57 am|
I agree - conference championships should be viewed as a defacto first round of the playoffs. If not, get rid of them because it makes no sense for a team to watch a conf championship game from the couch and still be in the same 4-team playoff as the conf champ. Playing a conf champ game should be...

A win over A&M would be huge - we REALLY need that right now, and I think it's very achievable. Might be a shoot out like Georgia game, and we will need to score on every drive, but we can't let the Aggies take one from us at home! :geauxtigers:...

I hope he never wins another game anywhere, ever.
Don't hate him personally, and don't find it that unusual that he lied about taking a pro job. Didn't like it, but not surprised.
But taking a job at a rival school in the same conference feels a LOT like betrayal. Now, if he were losing al...

MLB season should end with the World Series around Labor Day (late Aug/early Sep).
NFL should get rid of pre-season games entirely and just play the regular season.
MLB should not be allowed to draft players from high school - must be out 3 years like football....
