re: The Hoover Met - Bankshot
I remember LSU and State playing in the Superdome when I was in college back in 1998. Maybe they could try the Superdome one year....

re: Why is the movie North so universally despised and crapped on - Bankshot
I remember seeing the movie on HBO about 20 years ago, but I don't remember much about it other than Bruce Willis dressed like an Easter bunny. But, you're right, back in the day, when Ebert ripped your film a new one, it typically got a bad reputation. Ishtar comes to mind. He mentioned that one...

re: Norm Macdonald fascinates me. - Bankshot
Supposedly, one of the big reasons he got fired from SNL was that he kept making jokes about OJ on Weekend Update, and the head of NBC was one of OJ's best friends. I quit watching SNL for a long time after he was fired. ...

re: Who is the best team that your team has beaten in the modern era? - Bankshot
Very short list. 1980 over #1 Alabama 2000 over #3 Florida We've beaten other top 5 teams, but I don't think any ended the season in the top 10 or won the SEC....

re: Spinoff: Most heartbreaking loss your team has dished out? - Bankshot
Several older Bama fans around Birmingham I have met brought up the 1980 game against State. Apparently, they were shocked they lost the game. Ended a long winning streak. I don't really remember the game itself, as I was about 5 years old and living in Nashville at the time. We didn't beat them...

re: The 25 best college football teams since 1980 that didn't win national titles - Bankshot
The mere fact that the 2002 Miami team is not on the list anywhere makes me question the author's sanity. The 1990 Miami team is on the list and they had two losses....

re: 1985: The Last Great Year in Film for Younger Audiences - Bankshot
There have been other great years for younger audiences but the late 80's were pretty lacking when it came to great at least somewhat kid-friendly films. The best films in 1987 and 1988 were mostly rated R. 1989 was the notable exception since you had films like Batman, Indiana Jones and the Last ...

re: Scott Walker Didn't Finish College. And? - Bankshot
As long as Walker didn't lie about it I don't see why people care he didn't finish his college degree. I've met various people, mostly older than me, who left college before getting their degree because they found a job/career they enjoyed and didn't have to get the degree. ...

re: Most exciting run you have seen in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament - Bankshot
I remember watching part of the 1985 final between Villanova and Georgetown. My dad was watching the game, and I really didn't know anything about either team. I had no clue it was an upset until a few years later. I was 9 years old at the time and really didn't keep up with college basketball ba...

re: This is Jack Burton in the Pork-Chop Express - Bankshot
Kurt Russell was pretty big back in the mid to late 80's and I figured there would be a sequel considering the ending. However, I later found out the movie really bombed at the box office. ...

re: Most exciting run you have seen in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament - Bankshot
It might be before some of the folks on this board's time, but the run by Loyola Marymount was pretty awesome. It was also without their best player in Hank Gathers. Also, the Michigan run the year before in 1989 with Glen Rice was pretty good....

A great underrated film from the 80's. It's a shame it didn't do well at the box office, which meant no potential follow-up film....

re: Who is your pick to win the 2015 Sprint Cup Championship - Bankshot
Yes, a lot of NASCAR fans considered him a yankee and he started beating Earnhardt out for championships. I just remember hearing an old driver whose name escapes me (retired by the time Gordon was competing) make the point that Gordon had advantages the prior generation of drivers didn't have. ...

re: Who is your pick to win the 2015 Sprint Cup Championship - Bankshot
My understanding is that the older NASCAR fans (mostly the old Petty and Earnhardt fans) hated JG because he was so young and already driving for Hendrick (with the best crew members and equipment). Back in the 70's and 80's, the young drivers typically had to work their way to the best teams. ...

re: If you list the all-time top 3 RBs for each SEC school - Bankshot
I always thought Charlie Garner was Tennessee's most under appreciated RB. He only played two seasons and had to share the ball with James Stewart and Aaron Hayden. If memory serves, he was #3 on Tennessee's all time rushing list after his two seasons....

re: Older SEC fans, please tell me about the 1980s SEC football landscape - Bankshot
Here's a topic. Quarterback play in the SEC wasn't that great in the 1980's. It seemed like the only QB's that stood out from that decade were Kerwin Bell, Tommy Hodson and Kurt Page. None of those had much of an NFL career....
