re: South Alabama gained full Division I status in 2013 - kjacksonp
I live in Mobile and work for USA so I keep their logo here, but LSU by birth and degree. But with the way the Tigers started, I'll have some mixed feelings come November....

I think that is a '62 chevy, not 60. Guy in first pic is the other guard on the team, I think, but cannot remember name....

re: How screwed am I by not putting down 20% on a home purchase? - kjacksonp
baldona makes good points re: renting vs. buying. That said, if you are going to buy and hold only for a short period, ARMs may be better than fixed rate (lower initial interest for first several years depending on the ARM). Another expense of owning is maintenance is yours. The a/c breaks y...

re: Can you sell calls to establish a short position? - kjacksonp
What about selling the call at or just out of the money and buying a call for a later expiration that is farther out of the money? Limits risk (makes it not a naked call) and the loss of value of the later expiration call is at a slower rate. Net gain if market is flat is profit from sold call le...

re: I wonder how many LSU fans went to bed frustrated because of the game and - kjacksonp
I'm north of 60 and was supposed to get up at 5:15 for a meeting that was optional. I stayed up for the whole thing and then couldn't go to sleep because I was so pumped up from watching it. Slept til 8. :) ...

re: Great game TN - kjacksonp
Walked a L handed batter to get to a R handed batter? Right handed pitcher throwing heat. Made all bases a forceout, especially home in case of a play where a double play was not possible. Only real risk besides a hit (Fraley was on a hitting streak, so he was as big of a threat as Kramer?) was a...

Honestly did not think Saban would have the level of success he has had at Bama. I thought Bama alums and fans were a bit crazy for expecting it. Wrong....

re: Buying Silver? - kjacksonp
If you are going to buy from anyone other than a dealer like APMEX, MONEX, Provident Metals (my favorite), etc., get a magnet for testing authenticity. It is not fool proof but many scam attempts with silver dollars are made from metals that magnets attract. The only items I consider on Ebay o...

re: Oregon beating Duke (RE: LSU beating Duke in NCAAT) - kjacksonp
This Duke team was without Jefferson for almost all of the year and played shorthanded the entire season, with three 18 year olds frequently starting, and the only one comparable to last years freshmen was Ingram. They were a much deeper and better team in '06. This years Duke team would not hav...

re: 30 for 30- Duke Scandal - kjacksonp
It was not Alleva; Broadhead (president) was the one that immediately threw them under the bus. Also note that their school mates were all in for hanging them. Mob mentality is scary, which makes Tiger Rant scary....

re: Disrespecting Matt Flynn - kjacksonp
"When you scrub the homerism off of him, when you eliminate the fact that he's worn orange and blue before, and you get rid of the "he's studied under Peyton for 4 years" (so did Curtis freaking Painter), you'll see that Brock really isn't all that impressive. [u]No more impressive than Matt Flynn w...

re: Cam Newton is a fool. Wonderlic proof - kjacksonp
[quote]Cam is a good, young man who is still finding his way in the world.[/quote] I think he has been good for the game this year. One performance is not the litmus test for his ability or his long-term success. The Broncos got pasted two years ago; scored 8 points, was it? Who was the QB? Pr...

re: Man cave in progress...needs more Tiger. - kjacksonp
I have an autographed, laminated set of Jimmy Taylor photos (Green Bay pics) with the year of his NFL HOF induction on the bottom. Anyone want it? I'll mail it to you if you would like it. Has sat in my office for years and will probably retire fairly soon and not have a place for it at home. ...

re: Curry versus Maravich - kjacksonp
Maravich put up 68 on Walt Frazier, arguably the best D guard of his era. He was the best play creator of his era. Whether his accuracy matches Curry would be debatable, but his overall play-making and creativity was better. Curry is as accurate from distance as I think we'll ever see; Maravich...

re: Tiger Stadium Dorms - kjacksonp
Lived in north stadium fall of '67 in an area on the 5th floor that had been freshened up a bit. Room mate did not show so had a big room to myself. Was a bit dicey going to take a shower before game time because the ramps had windows into our hall way. Very noisy on game nights but I was at the ...

I don't think that is accurate. He had a congenital absence of one of his L coronary artery, not an abnormally small heart. ...

re: Your most miserable TS experience ever - kjacksonp
Been going to games since 1956 so too numerous to count, but an annihilation by Ole Miss in the 60's (35-3?) Losing to Bama in '79 3-0 in a pouring, cold rain where we never crossed mid field. Good for starters....
