re: Tool Box and Bed Cover? - Thorny
I have a BAK RollX, which I like, but I have the box sitting on the floor of the bed. I didn't like losing so much of the bed space by having the box a foot back from the front of the bed. If I were to do it again, I would probably go with [link=(https://www.foldacover.com/)]Fold-a-Cover[/link]...

re: Define Success for Will Wade's Tigers Next Season - Thorny
From the article about him posted in another thread: “A model of consistency. Blue-collar, tough, gritty, hard-working, aggressive program,” Wade says. “Not a lot of ups and downs. Consistent and winning big games in March. Just keep this thing going down the tracks.” That is my standard. ...

re: Pope issues statement saying he is open to change regarding Priests marriage - Thorny
Several of the Eastern Rites (Byzantine, Melkite, etc.) of the Church have always allowed married men to become priests. They usually cannot marry after becoming a priest, which comports with the situation Pope Francis talks about. They are usually not chosen to be Bishops either, meaning that in th...

re: How many of you allowed your kids to go to college out of State - Thorny
I grew up in Florida. My mom insisted on me and my siblings going to school out of state. She wanted us to "see the world". It also helped that she was a Gator Hater. That's how I ended up at LSU in the first place. After a career in the Air Force, I now live in Alabama. First two sons went to in...

re: We have beanstalks at the WR position (QB question) - Thorny
Not trying to be Bama-obsessed, but the reality is that the one team we can't figure out how to beat eats "pro-style QB's" for supper. Nobody in college football can hold up to their front seven in traditional passing scenarios. Hell, plenty of so-called stats experts put our offensive line as one o...

re: Is this committee system better than BCS computers? - Thorny
[quote]The biggest complaint and catalyst to move away from the computers was that head-to-head wasn't taken into account (ie FSU getting in over Miami in the 2000 season.) The next wave a change was spurred by a team getting in that didn't win it's division or conference (Bama in 2011 season). Thos...

re: Help me pick a home rowing exercise machine (NSFW) - Thorny
It's not bad on the knees. It strengthens the muscles around them, which apparently takes pressure off of the tendons and ligaments. It isn't the same motion as walking though, so the muscles tend to tighten up if rowing would be all you do. I would suggest some walking to go with it. Nothing too...
