re: LSU is not a rebuild. LSU hired O to avoid a rebuild. - N.O. via West-Cal
"a. he is the former DL coach and primary DL recruiter b. he didn't fire the OL coach so while i agree in theory, the argument fails" I'm not even intending to frame an argument. In fact, I largely agree with what you're saying; it's just that I don't know what to do with it. Your points ...

re: Why did Louisiana vote for Bill Clinton, but not Mississippi and Alabama? - N.O. via West-Cal
By 1992, things were certainly heading in the direction of Louisiana going red, but many of us thought that Louisiana was and would remain "different" than the other Southern states in this regard. This turned out to be incorrect. If you want to hear someone REALLY smart on this issue, try to listen...

re: Why did Louisiana vote for Bill Clinton, but not Mississippi and Alabama? - N.O. via West-Cal
Louisiana was a much more Democratic state at the time and was behind the rest of the South in "going red." It was not all that surprising that a Southern Democrat governor of Arkansas could carry La. back then....

re: LSU is not a rebuild. LSU hired O to avoid a rebuild. - N.O. via West-Cal
I don't so much disagree with what you are saying but it doesn't change the fact that recruiting and player retention slipped over the past few years of the Miles era. The problems are especially acute on both lines and probably at WR, as well. O and his coordinators need to a better job with what t...

re: If you could eliminate mosquitos for life.... - N.O. via West-Cal
Lovebugs are a mess, but this is an easy yes for me. I like in an urban area that still has plenty of mosquitoes but basically no love bugs. So, I'm really only affected by love bugs on trips. Plus, can you imagine how much better teal season would be without skeeters!?...

re: Most worrisome thing--Oline - N.O. via West-Cal
Agreed. We were dominated on both sides of the line. I'm surprised on the DL side. My fears were realized on the offensive side. ...

re: MILES IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PART OF THIS ONE! - N.O. via West-Cal
I know people don't want to hear it but the OP is correct. Miles failed to keep pieces in place on the lines and at WR. Some due to recruiting misses and a lot due to poor retention of players. The talent and experience deficit is, for now, on Miles. ...

re: Are you happy your tax dollar subsidize the Saints and the NFL?? - N.O. via West-Cal
YOur suggestion that Congress could outlaw the receipt of payments/subsidies from local and state governments is interesting but would raise significant federalism concerns. I don't know that the federal government has the power to regulate in this way. Are you suggesting that Congress just conditio...

re: Shocking: Bill DeBlasio hates private property - N.O. via West-Cal
I am not a libertarian and have no trouble with basic zoning laws. But it's still amazing to see someone in a position of authority scoff at principles so basic to what America is about. Liberty, private property, and limited government. He is pretty much saying to hell with all that. ...

re: Etling vs Chattanoogie (Every throw) - N.O. via West-Cal
"But you also don't want him to get to bail happy the moment he feels any pressure." this is my biggest concern about Etling. It looks sometime like he's giving up on a play too soon, before the pressure is really there. ...

re: Ta-Nahisi Coates: Trump's only real ideology is white supremacy - N.O. via West-Cal
I enjoy reading Coates, too, but this isn't up to his standard. It's rambling, heavily reliant on anecdotes, and not even really an argument. he's just preaching to the converted and listening for an amen. ...

re: Islam over the last 120 years - N.O. via West-Cal
I realize that it's fashionable on this board just to respond with quick retorts, but if you're serious at all about the threat posed by radical Islam, I suggest you educate yourself on it. It simply is not true that Islam remains today as it was 1400 years ago. Enormous amounts of literature have b...

re: Je Suis Charlie Hedbo? - N.O. via West-Cal
I know their schtick but what's wrong about this is that satire only works when there is some degree of truth. This cover is "wrong" because it has no underlying truth. In any meaningful sense, there are no Nazis in Texas. So few, in fact, that it is unlikely that any Nazi drowned. Far more likely t...
