re: Do you think DB Cooper survived? - Thorny
[quote]I want to think they escaped Alcatraz, it certainly is possible but it's hard to believe that 3 career criminals that have been in and out of prison most of their lives would be able to just quit committing crimes with the flip of a switch. Even if they changed their names and moved to South ...

re: Supreme Court sends ObamaCare contraception mandate case back to lower courts - Thorny
The designers of the ACA want this fight. It furthers their desire to push the US toward single-payer, government healthcare. In the design, the ACA kept the economically distorting link between employment and health insurance. In doing so, they loaded the mandate with things that limit the abili...

re: Mexicans delivering Taco Bowls to Congress - Thorny
This has to be the dumbest case of false outrage ever. If Trump said nothing about Cinco-De-Mayo, these same Hispanic "leaders" would complain that he doesn't care about their culture. Instead, their mad because he likes some taco salad. Either way, the whole "cultural appropriation" game is ...

re: ESPN 30 for 30 on USFL and Trump - Thorny
I was a member of the Tampa Bay Bandits Band (and thus, had a front row seat to the whole thing). I also watched the show (it's on Netflix, if you care), and it pretty accurately represents the chain of events well. The whole experience colors my view of Trump and why I have disliked him for over 30...

re: Roy King is suing LSU - Thorny
I certainly think the SOM was looking at the calendar when they took this action. Since they were not prepared to charge King with a crime, they knew the dismissal would be more administrative and would get the type of push-back we've seen. So, waiting until the end of the basketball seasons puts th...

re: Marines looking into claims of mistaken ID in Iwo Jima flag photo (UPDATE 5/4) - Thorny
In addition to it not being staged, Rosenthal has said that he thought he didn't get a decent photo at all. He was preparing to take the photo of the second flag raising once it was all the way up. However, to get a better view, he stepped backwards right as the Marines started to raise the flag...

re: Peak of your happiness as an LSU fan - Thorny
Two come to mind: #1: Driving back to Montgomery after the 2007 SECCG listening to WWL tell us about the meltdowns of Mizzou and WVU that would get us the bid for the title game. After the Arkansas game, my son had figured out exactly what had to happen to get to the BCSCG, and sure enough, all o...

re: 10 toughest schedules in college football in 2016 (LSU #2) - Thorny
[quote]What are our two non power 5 losses? Is Notre Dame not P5?[/quote] This bothered me too, but they aren't counting SEC neutral site games in the "Power 5" set. LSU has lost 5 neutral site games in the Miles era: 2005 UGA in SECCG 2009 Penn State in Cap One Bowl 2011 Alabama in Mulli...

re: Has there ever been a win you got absolutely no joy from? - Thorny
The one that jumps to mind for me is the 2001 game at Kentucky. I was living in Ohio at the time so I went. We won on a Rohan Davey TD to Michael Clayton with less than 20 seconds left. Kentucky wasn't that good, and we pretty much sucked all night. I walked out of the stadium sour on Saban, tel...

re: Has there ever been a win you got absolutely no joy from? - Thorny
[quote] still hate the dialogue after the LSU Tenn game. All that talk about how LSU got lucky, and very little blame to Tennessee for enough confusion to not only have 12 men on the field but 13. Hell, one of the CBS guys continuously calls LSU lucky while saying "I don't blame Derek Dooley, he wen...

re: Steve Spurrier on best Job in SEC: LSU - Thorny
Like it or not, Bama is the best job in the SEC. The results over time prove this out. Sure, they have had huge success under Bryant and Saban and that blinds everyone. But they also won an MNC with Stallings, who was a failing coach everywhere else. They won an SEC with Dubose, who is coaching h...

re: Roy King Fired - Thorny
[quote]Let's just say that Roy King holds $300K a year of money that was given to him by LSU Athletic Department for band stipend (don't know where and I don't know if this is an accurate amount.) School of Music wants that money. Roy said no. Roy gets put on paid leave. Roy gets attorney. Roy gets ...
