No question. My last game as a student in grad school-Capiral One Bowl loss to Iowa in 04. Saban's last game. Just left a bad taste in my mouth...
| Tiger Rant|| re: What was the best/favorite thing that happen while you were a student? - Smoke Dinardo on 3/3/14 at 5:24 pm|
Did undergrad and grad school back to back and was there between 98 and 05. So I was there during the football turnaround, which was not a single event, but great to be a student during. Had a baseball NC in undergrad and a football NC in grad school. Both were awesome .
But the best was Auburn g...

Someone said nobody is upset about playing at Lambeau. Not true. That's probably what I am most pissed about because I have always wanted to go to Madison/Camp Randal for a good ole fashioned college game day experience. Now I probably won't in my lifetime.
This is why I like college football mor...

I just read through the entire "Best arse whooping LSU has given an opponent in the last decade thread"
Before I even opened it, VT in 2007 popped into my head. It is also the overwhelming most popular answer in the thread. This is not by accident-LSU fans want more if these games in Tiger Stadium...
| Tiger Rant|| Will 2015 LSU/SEC Football Schedule be another "Bridge" Schedule? - Smoke Dinardo on 1/14/14 at 1:16 pm|
In other words, when they finally do publish the completed 2015 football schedule (could be April, could be July, who knows?), will it be like the last 2 years where it's a bridge schedule and our East opponents make absolutely no sense?
Or will the SEC finally have a format that is universal for...
| Tiger Rant|| Future Game in Football with BYU? - Smoke Dinardo on 1/7/14 at 3:36 pm|
Found this with a simple google search of "2015 LSU football schedule."
I HATE not knowing who we are playing in upcoming years. I hate how they are "postponing" (canceling) the only good games (OU, ASU). I know the unkno...

Yes I have always wanted this! I hate bowl tie ins. I hate how if we don't make the NC there is a finite amount of destinations we can go to. I don't agree on Houston or St. Louis-I think it should be further west. More exotic like Phoenix or San Diego. The biggest point here is- why is there no bow...
| Coaching Changes|| Will Petrino benefit from any big coaching changes? - Smoke Dinardo on 12/13/13 at 12:49 pm|
Saban to Texas and then Bama hiring Petrino would be as close to a strorybook ending as I can think of.
Just curious if anyone else thinks Petrino might somehow benefit because it seems like if Texas does get rid if Brown, even if Saban does not leave Bama, it will have a huge domino effect....
| Tiger Rant|| If Saban goes to Texas, does possibility of Home and Home increase? - Smoke Dinardo on 12/11/13 at 11:17 am|
Pipe dreaming to think we may play in Austin because even if this did happen, we all know in today's pussified world it would be a neutral site game in Houston.
But if Saban goes there I can see this happening. Both he and Miles have alot of balls, think they would win, and would want to recruit ...
| Tiger Rant|| Iowa has always been in my Top 5 Most Hated Teams - Smoke Dinardo on 12/8/13 at 9:35 pm|
I've always hated them since I was a kid. Initially, it was because they were the team that hurt Alvin Mack in The Program. Then, of course, the Capital One Bowl debacle (I was there). In fact, I would say they are my 4th most hated team in the country.
1) USC-obvious reasons
2) Texas-because th...

I have never been more confused about anything in college sports than this bridge schedule BS-----just seems like there is no method to the madness.
I am fully aware of the old rotation of opponents from the SEC east so no need to remind me. It's obvious the SEC heard the cry from LSU when ESPN t...

Because it is in Atlanta-America's worst city by leaps and bounds. Omaha is more fun and had more character.
The only location that would be worse for a bowl game in America would be the halls of Congress....

1) how hard is it to estimate how old a girl is? It's easy when they are under 30. I estimated 25, so between 23-27 for sure. This was totally not the point of the post-just an extra tidbit. I expected more "good for him-he is with a young girl" and not so much "how do you know her age?" Shows how n...

Did anyone else see him? I saw him going in the front gate about 10 minutes before kickoff. He had a 25 year old girl with him.
I sit in Sec 421 but the guy in front of me had binoculars and let me see him-he was sitting in the suite directly below the Billy Canon sign. He deserved a relaxing Sa...
| Tiger Rant|| Does Cotton not take us even if we beat TAM? - Smoke Dinardo on 11/12/13 at 2:37 pm|
If we lose on 11-23, at 8-4, I think we go to Peach Boel and will probably play some rediculous ACC opponent.
If we win on 11-23, some have us predicted to go to Cotton and play Texas. Even though I'm upset about the record, if we beat Texas in the Cotton I think it would be a memorable season. M...

My first post on this board. I want to see the response. Out of all the "name recognition" GOP candidates rumored to run for Governor of LA in '15, who would you like to see the most (as Governor) and who would you like to see the least? Mine are:
Most- John Kennedy
Least- Scott Angelle

All this don't hate Saban talk got me thinking----did you ever actually meet the man?
He got here my junior year and his last year was my final year of grad school. So I was a student the while time he was here.
During his final season in 04, I think before the Vandy game. A friend got me into...

Both have Louisiana connections. Del Rio's daughter went to LSU. Orgeron is from the bayou. The chances of this happening are much better if one of these two takes over as USC Head Coach.
