re: Can we get a petition started to rename LSU the 'Possums? - tigerinridgeland
Our live mascot is a fully grown tiger. I'd like to see the Auburn eagle try to snatch Mike and fly away. The eagle would actually have to be a mythical roc in order to pull that off. The possum is a rally symbol, not a mascot....

re: It was a smart move by CPM but I would have sent Poche out to start the ninth - tigerinridgeland
When pronouncing French words/names, syllables are not stressed, as in English. The emphasis is the same for each syllable, hence one of the reasons that many non-Louisianians get the pronunciation of French names wrong....

re: Looking at you Ole Miss - tigerinridgeland
No problem. Just so you know, I am not among those who accuse everybody associated with Ole Miss of being racists. Living in Mississippi, I have lots of friends and coworkers who went to Ole Miss, and I certainly don't find them to be racist. Not that I don't "hate" Ole Miss when it comes to sports,...

[quote]Georgia people deffaced the statue, NOT Ole miss students or locals. [/quote] Sorry, you don't get to rewrite history to suit yourself. The noose was placed on the statue by Ole Miss students from Georgia. They got kicked out of Ole Miss, or at least withdrew, but they were Ole Miss studen...

re: Shaquille O'Neal and Higher Education - tigerinridgeland
An Ed.D. degree is not really comparable to a Ph.D. The former is not primarily a research degree. Most who seek the Ed.D are in education administration. Nobody compares the two degrees and no one sees them as equivalent. They are different degrees with different purposes. There is certainly no nee...
