re: Props to to BRPD and EBRSO - CovingtonTiger
I believe that credit should also be given to the family of Alton Sterling who, after the incident, called for an investigation and justice for their relative, but also stressed that they did not want violence, looting etc. I believe that their reaction to the tragedy was very important in keeping ...

re: Are there any Tigers on Opening Day Rosters or likely to be called up? - CovingtonTiger
Is there any chance of Mike Fontenot or Brian Wilson getting another shot in MLB? Last I saw, they were both free agents....

OM v. USCe who to root for? - CovingtonTiger
I assume that we need to root for South Carolina in this one since OM is shown as a "last 4 byes" team like LSU. I know all that really matters is the game tomorrow, but do you think an Ole Miss loss helps, hurts, or has no effect on LSU' s NCAA tourney position?...

re: Chavis Recruiting for A&M ... Rabalais Article + Pic - CovingtonTiger
If I remember correctly, the rumor mill essentially confirmed Chavis to A&M right after the LSU bowl game. However, it was weeks before A&M ever officially announced the hire. They were obviously trying to work with Chief to avoid paying the buyout. Chavis would be in breach of his LSU contract. ...

re: Chavis deceptive departure to Texas A&M "screams NCAA rules violation" - CovingtonTiger
This really is a simple breach of contract situation. Although I have not read Chief's contract, I would certainly think that every coaches contract at LSU and any other institution has a clause stating that the coach will recruit for and represent only that institution during the time of his emplo...

re: LSU slapped with recruiting sanctions after prospect backs out of commitment - CovingtonTiger
It will only be changed if Bama or Auburn get caught in the same situation. Then the SEC will say the rule is ambiguous and everything Bama or Auburn did is OK, but LSU still has to serve the penalty. ...

re: LSU slapped with recruiting sanctions after prospect backs out of commitment - CovingtonTiger
This is really an NCAA problem. They created the issue by allowing unlimited contact with a recruit who signed a financail aid agreeement. The rule should either continue to limit contact, or say that you have unlimited contact until notified, formally, that the kid has decommitted. With kids sig...

re: Official Starkville Joke Thread (some gems from Skip Bertman) - CovingtonTiger
Not a joke, but a story that illustrates just how STARK it is in Starkville. In 1981 (I think) LSU was undefeated and ranked 3rd in the country late in the season. For the first time in years, LSU played MSU in Starkville instead of Jackson. It was an afternoon game and the biggest game actuall...

re: outright lying in a new story when the trial was on TV for millions - CovingtonTiger
The issue about the prosecution withholding evidence has nothing to do with whether or not the evidence was ultimately deemed admissable. The prosecution has a duty to produce any evidence which may be exculpatory in nature. The prosecution does not get withhold evidence because it thought the mat...

re: No save for Cotton? - CovingtonTiger
Thanks for the clarification. I thought he might qualify even though there was a 4 run lead since he pitched more than one inning. For all the rest of the rant areas, I apologize for not searching, but have been unavailable since the game ended....

No save for Cotton? - CovingtonTiger
Just curious. Why did Cotton not get a save in the game last night? He pitched 2 innings, and when he went in we had a 4 run lead. Is it because the lead was more than 3 runs, or because the offense exploded for 6 more in the ninth? Thanks...

re: Accused of plagiarizing on an assignment at LSU. - CovingtonTiger
I would think the burden would be on the professor to prove that you palgerized, rather than you having to prove you did not. Proving a negative is almost always impossible. Go through the schools appeals process, get copies of whatever evidence the professor has. Also, as soon as possible, go ba...

re: Severe ankle sprains - CovingtonTiger
My daughter did the same thing playing volleyball. She has actually sprained the same ankle several times. She had to go through several weeks of PT the last time because scar tissue built up making it hard to get mobility back. The PT told her that whenever she injured the ankle in the future to...

re: Chizik fighting for his life and a desperate Auburn team... - CovingtonTiger
Wtxtiger--I respectfully disagree with your desire to see Chizik's career at Auburn end. I would think that a true LSU fan would like nothing more than for Chizik to stay at Auburn for the next 10-12 years. After all, he won't be able to buy a all world quarterback and defensive lineman very often...

re: News to me... DWI Arrest - CovingtonTiger
oOoLsUtIgErSoOo--It sounds like you are a police officer, or at least know more about this than most people. I have a question. If you are pulled over for DUI and asked to take a breath test, does the officer have to ask you when your last drink was? I heard somewhere that, if you have been drink...

re: Appraisal question - CovingtonTiger
I had a wood shop at my house which I renovated to make a home office. Same setup as yours, it was all under the original roof, but you had to go through the carport to get to the office. My office was heated and cooled through a unit like the ones used in hotels. When we sold, the appraiser gave...

re: Did anyone else grow up or know a chick who is incredibly loose with herself - CovingtonTiger
There was a girl in my HS, I think 10th grade, who would have a "party" whenever her parents were out of town *which was almost every weekend). The parties were guys only, and the price of admission was a six pack of beer. After she started drinking, the guys would line up and take turns. Obvio...

Thanks for the site, I know this took a great deal of work, and it is appreciated. I don't want to be a grammer nazi, but the word "Committed" is misspelled in the banner of the OP. Just thought you might want to edit b4 you got too much grief....

re: Hypothetical Sandusky Question - CovingtonTiger
I have not read the entire thread, but IMHO the NCAA will not get involved, because these issues weren't related to on the field activities. However, I actually disagree with that assessment, because for many years whenever anyone discussed Penn State, even when the teams were not doing that well, ...

re: OT Lawyers - Apartment changed mailbox lock after eviction. Any recourse? - CovingtonTiger
Did you take a suspensive appeal? You have a short time delay and usually have to post a bond to do that. If you took a suspensive appeal, then I think you have rights to complain aobut the landlord changing the locks. If not, then I think the landlord would be within his rights to change the loc...
