re: Jordan Mickey's Draft Stock - N.O. via West-Cal on 5/22/15 at 1:45 pm
I remain very concerned about his on-ball post defense, but I bet he's working on it and I am glad to hear his stock his rising. He was a fun Tiger to watch, he made his decision, and now I just hope it pays off in a first round contract. :geauxtigers:...

Regardless of how one views the specific cases, Rex's argument, such as it is, is overboard in its simplicity and would prove far too much. Is every law regarding an age requirement unconstitutional (drinking, driving, voting)? How about polygamy laws? Of course not. Equal Protection has never b...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

As young as Monty is and with the league's tendency to recycle coaches, I think you're wrong. I'm not going to look it up but I think Gentry has a losing record and he is the running for the Pels job....

re: Am I the only one who likes neutral site games - N.O. via West-Cal on 5/20/15 at 8:45 am
I used to be for them but then I realized what their net impact is: a significant reduction in good OOC games being played on college campuses. In a vacuum I have no problem with, say, LSU playing Wisconsin in Houston. That's a good, appealing matchup. But I would prefer for that game to be p...

re: How many of you will actually vote Jeb if he gets the nomination? - N.O. via West-Cal on 5/14/15 at 9:52 am
Staying home or voting third party is a vote for Hillary Clinton. So, I will vote for the GOP nominee almost no matter who it is. Protest votes or non-votes need to be limited to states that are not truly contested. Even then, better to go to the polls and vote on other races that you deem importa...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

"What next?" Well, if they did nothing, I could perhaps live with it. By nothing, I mean not further expanding government. So long as the taxes are not so high as to hurt the economy and cause a decrease revenues, I sure wouldn't mind reducing or eliminating the budget deficit. Let's just say,...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
