[quote]But what is the significance of a National seed?[/quote] It's all about playing at home. If any of the top 8 win the regional they are hosting, then the super-regional best-of-three is also played on their home field. There's nothing magic about being a national seed with who goes where, o...

re: Your favorite bourbon - finestfirst79
Blanton's if I have bourbon-drinking company or I'm celebrating something. Otherwise Knob Creek for roughly half the price. I'd love to try Pappy but it isn't available anywhere close that I can tell, other than Jackson bars. ...

re: Was Franchoni a good coach? - finestfirst79
There's no doubt he's a great one. That's why he's been at Texas State for 5 years: no openings are worthy of his greatness. Or his subscription newsletter....

re: Netflix report ... - finestfirst79
The Killing. My wife got way ahead of me while I was wasting time on crappy sci-fi offerings. We're on Season 4. Good show. It's a Netflix production (before this I didn't know there was such a thing) so you probably haven't heard of it. I'll probably watch the first 3 seasons in the next two nights...

re: Future sched news - La Tech dropped in '16, one game needed - finestfirst79
Yep, $500K to cancel a game they were only going to make $200K on. Weird stuff. The trouble for A&M and what has folks mad is it might be tough to find a good replacement before '16....

[quote]They thumbed their noses at us[/quote] Boo-hoo? If the $10m isn't about A&M possibly extending the season I'm not sure what you're talking about. How did a postponement cost A&M $10m? What does "trusted them as business partners" have to do with anything? ...

re: Future sched news - La Tech dropped in '16, one game needed - finestfirst79
There was no way to know that a week before the game, though, and anybody who thinks there WAS doesn't pay much attention to hurricanes. Speaking for myself and other LTU parents I sure didn't want to see my kid driving the 67 miles from Shreveport to LTU in 75 mph wind and inch-an-hour rain. I d...
