re: Could a guy named F King ever have been an A Student? - ffishstik
I just have to question any guy who chooses to go by his first initial and middle name even though he knows it looks like "F'King Alexander". I mean, what's wrong with Francis or Freddie? ...

re: If we finish 5-7, and retain Orgeron, what will attendance and ticket sales be next year? - ffishstik
[quote]ramchallenge[/quote] You and I are seeing and saying pretty much the same thing, man. I believe that it can evolve into something great again, but it is going to take time and an AD with vision. Winning certainly fixes a lot, but all programs have down periods. The Tiger Stadium experience...

re: If we finish 5-7, and retain Orgeron, what will attendance and ticket sales be next year? - ffishstik
[quote]My family has had season tickets since the 70s.[/quote] So you know what Tiger stadium used to be like. We have had ours since my grandfather's days at LSU. Tiger Stadium may be bigger, but it is currently a pale shadow of what it used to be. There are many factors, cost, TV and traffic be...

[quote]Miles always landed 4 stars by and large[/quote] This issue with the lack of depth on the line is largely attributable to recruiting under Les. Recruit big uglies and this will get right. ...

re: If we finish 5-7, and retain Orgeron, what will attendance and ticket sales be next year? - ffishstik
Maybe it would be a good thing and we can purge these bandwagon fans that came in after we started winning who leave at halftime every game. No, I'm not implying that 5-7 would be a good thing. ...

re: Debunking The Buyout Myth - ffishstik
[quote]hire the right coach and all will be forgiven[/quote] The right coach would be too smart to come into a situation where we have this AD and the baggage from the half-assed way he handled the Les Miles situation, followed up by firing a coach after one year. As for the "myth", it's a FA...

re: LSU vs Troy attendance predictions - ffishstik
Actually, now that I think about it, the mass exodus at halftime will likely be worse throughout the stadium. The people who have the seats to our right never come, they give them away, and it is a revolving door of folks with small kids who seldom stay past halftime. For garbage games, you get a lo...

re: LSU vs Troy attendance predictions - ffishstik
Three thoughts: 1. Didn't think of the "give-aways", but those who don't get to go regularly may actually stay longer than a-holes who take it for granted 2. It's Homecoming, which means that the actual crowd to start the game will be better, but the mass exodus from the student section at half...

re: The $7- commeravative cup soft drink (one free refill) - and other concessions comments - ffishstik
I did have some observations. I'll start with the good: 1. The drink refill is a good idea and we did get the refills, but that's a LOT of Coke. It will be nice during games when I have the flask going 2. The open area in SEZ without the dorms was much better and closer to what I've always sai...

[quote]Did Cersei know beforehand that they were bringing a wight, and that this was the opportunity for Euron to make it look like he was fleeing?[/quote] Could be that, but it is more likely just shitty writing now that they have sailed past the books and have to fill in the gaps on their own. ...

re: Outside the Bama FLA AND AUB GAme, what game are you Most worried? - ffishstik
Honestly, I don't get the hype around Auburn. LSU wins that one. Arkansas always plays us tough no matter how good or bad they are, I say that one. Not [i]worried[/i], though. I like this team and have a good feeling about the season. ...

Oh, and as I said in another post, I think he may reforge Ice. They made too much of a deal about that sword in both the books and the show for it to not have significance....

re: Question about Gendry's possible skill-role in GOT - ffishstik
I hadn't thought of the 7, but: The Mother - Dany (Mother of Dragons) The Father - Jaime (True father of the "Baratheon" kids) The Maid - Brienne (Maid of Tarth) The Crone - Melisandre (no explanation needed) The Warrior - Grey Worm (or Jorah, but Jorah is a Northman) The Stranger - Sandor (...

I[quote] would like to see something to explain why Rhaegar and Lyanna didn't tell anyone the truth before they started a war that got their family members killed.[/quote] Read the books. Lyanna was betrothed to Robert and Rhaegar was already married to Elia. They ran away together in secret. Rob...

re: GoT S8 End-Game Predictions - ffishstik
The first four episodes will deal with the battle against the NK. The last 2 will be the battle for the Iron Throne Brienne and Jaime will both be in the north and each has one of the swords forged from Ice. They give the swords back to the Starks and Gendry reforges Ice with Melisandre's help on...

re: What GoT historic event would you most like to see? - ffishstik
If we're going the route of not having current characters, then it is Dunk and Egg for sure. Old Nan even says in the first season that the tales of "Sir Duncan the Tall" were Bran's favorites (aside from the scary stories about the Long Night). ...
