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...
| Tiger Rant|| Coach Sean Payton at LSU/A&M game - Smoke Dinardo on 11/25/13 at 1:36 pm|
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.

I was a huge LSU fan as a child in the 80s. Bo Jackson was my favorite professional athlete because he played my two favorite sports. I remember my dad told me he went to Aubirn and I said "where?"
Looks like we only played Auburn once while he was there-1981 when he was a freshman and I was two ...

When they showed the series history last night it made me think it was low for another team in the West. That prompted me to go to tigerdroppings LSU football history and there I found we only played Auburn once in the 60s, twice in the 70s, and three times in the 80s.

Was just reading another post about LSU traditions and it reminded me of how sad I was when I came into TS for the first game a few years ago (someone can help me on the year) only to see they had removed this sign and replaced it with, of all things, advertising. I think was comparable to The Intim...

I guess that will be in another letter....

A simple google search will tell you the University of South Carolina was founded in 1801 and the University of Southern California was not founded until 1880-that's 79 years later. Most of us know this country was settled east to west. It seems like we should refer to that school in Cali as "USCw",...
