re: Has there ever been a round of boxing better than Rnd 1 Hagler/Hearns? - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]You've gotta be impressed by the way Leonard perfectly executed his gameplan, though, right? It really was a perfect strategy. He would brawl with Hagler...but only for about 10 seconds at a time. He'd engage him, win the exchange, but make sure it was brief, and then he'd pop back out ag...

re: Has there ever been a round of boxing better than Rnd 1 Hagler/Hearns? - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]That ring was massive, and Leonard used every inch. [/quote] Did he dictate tightness of the ropes too? or am i thinking Ali-Foreman? i'll give it to Leonard, he was one hell of a negotiator. He got Donny Lalonde to put his light heavyweight title on the line, but at the super middlew...

re: Has there ever been a round of boxing better than Rnd 1 Hagler/Hearns? - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]ou can totally disagree with the decision but it was very defensible. [/quote] Fair enough. I do think the judges were influenced by the crowd when Leonard would go into his flurries. I will say for Hagler's sake, if he wants to be bitter about a decision, he should watch a tape of his...

re: Has there ever been a round of boxing better than Rnd 1 Hagler/Hearns? - Obi-Wan Tiger
come on….amateur boxing scores every punch the same, even knockdowns. prof boxing has never worked that way. i won't say Leonard was ever seriously hurt, but i don't think there's any debate that Hagler landed more effective punches. the punch count was 306-291 Leonard, pretty even over a 12 roun...

[quote]That's sort of how amateur boxing works. You try to punch the other guy and it doesn't matter how effective it is. It's like the main idea. [/quote]...

re: Has there ever been a round of boxing better than Rnd 1 Hagler/Hearns? - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]I am a huge Hagler fan and still am pissed this day that Vegas gave Leonard the fight in 87. There is in no way the Champ should ever have to concede fight length, ring space, or billing. But somehow Ray Leonard got all the things he wanted in that fight. [/quote] Read a great article abo...

re: NCAA missed with Monday Championship Game - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]those who say football and other title games have always been on Monday, you're wrong[/quote] Agree. The trend of it always being on Monday started in 2011, which was the point ESPN got the rights to all of the BCS games. Before that, it had only been on Monday 3 of the previous 12 games...

re: Cinemark Classic Series - January 2015 - Obi-Wan Tiger
Glad to see some discussion about this. I've thoroughly enjoyed this series although hacked that my local Cinemark decided to quit showing them after a while, forcing me to another theater. Just something about seeing the classics on the big screen that makes it different. Bridge on the River Kwa...

re: LSU 10 Notre Dame 7, memories from 1985, odd game - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]1 was Florida who beat LSU 20-0 in B.R[/quote] One of the worst arse whippings I've seen a good LSU team take. It wasn't even that close. We crossed the 50 on the first series and did not do so again.. Was looking at the box score. There was no tv for that game as I recall due to UF bei...

re: If any fanbase should understand the boost OSU got yesterday, it's LSU's - Obi-Wan Tiger
i don't disagree with you…but the whole mantra of the BCS (and presumably) this system was to avoid awarding the hot team at the end. if you flip the VT game to last night and the Wisc game to September, does OSU still get in? And i agree with you on LSU 2003…but not 2007. we looked pretty aver...

re: So Joe Alleva is no longer guaranteeing that A&M will be a Saturday Night. - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]Probably a function of bargaining power at the time. We had something to offer. [/quote] I agree with this, but I would think the same point would be in effect with the A&M deal, no? Didn't LSU have to agree to the Turkey Day game? Or did they not have a choice?...

re: So Joe Alleva is no longer guaranteeing that A&M will be a Saturday Night. - Obi-Wan Tiger
[quote]Not the way it works. Demanding Saturday night home games just isn't on the table. [/quote] Apparently you missed 2011, where upon moving the game in Tuscaloosa to prime time, CBS also committed to ensure that the 2012 game in Baton Rouge would also be a prime time game. Fairly certain th...

[quote]based largely on past results[/quote] There has only been one season in the Miles era (to his credit) that a person could logically compare this season to in trying to predict the outcome of the rest of the season and that is 2008. The Tigers were blown out by two of the top three teams t...
