"Here to Win" Video: relates to Miles and Godchaux - johnfredlsu
So...the LSU commercial was really good this year. Except two people are featured in the video who may well no longer be associated with the team! [link=(http://www.lsu.edu/heretowin/)]http://www.lsu.edu/heretowin/[/link] What do you think media relations does with the video? (It looks like th...

re: Spinoff: how do we get more Pac-12/SEC matchups? - johnfredlsu
Tempe game during year of Katrina was mindblowing. The band was treated really, really well. (Besides the one beer thrown at us marching into the stadium.) In past 15 years LSU has played Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, and Washington during the regular season with upcoming games ag...

re: Forbes: America's Best Public Universities - johnfredlsu
Hahaha touché! ...except my statement was laced with sarcasm. (I also told you to ask for your money back.) You truly believed what you copied and pasted was accurate and honest. There's a big difference here. But, hey, that escapes you, maybe? I never did claim UGA was a poor school. I'm just cl...

re: Forbes: America's Best Public Universities - johnfredlsu
If UGA was truly a better school, you would have realized that it's intellectually dishonest to cut an idea out of the middle of a series of related ideas and then repost only parts of what I wrote in a way that misrepresents the argument I was making. In between what you posted and attributed to me...
