re: Coach says "You don't need good QB play to Win at Natty"?????? - Thorny
[quote]Making the right checkdown on 3rd and 6 to an open RB/TE for a 1st, hitting a guy in stride on a crossing route, pulling the ball down and taking off on 3rd and 5...getting a 1st down, extending a drive leading to points....ALL things that contribute to winning the game.[/quote] Those are ...

re: Are we just going to ignore POTUS tomorrow? - Thorny
[quote]Funny thing is, Obama spoke the truth and people hate him for it. Trump used his supporters for a photo op. Obama coming here sooner would not have done anything positive, and I don't like the guy either.[/quote] Sure, I agree with this. But, Obama blistered Bush for not landing in New ...

re: Flood Control: Comite Diversion Canal...30 years of Government "Progress" - Thorny
I would be interested in seeing a study comparing the potential this canal had to reduce the flooding to the increase of flooding caused by the Jersey barriers now up on I-12 (like this one near Juban Road) [img]http://www.wdsu.com/image/view/-/41255544/highRes/1/-/maxh/480/maxw/640/-/a8f4cnz/-/P...

re: Freshman OL Willie Allen done for the year - Thorny
[quote]Could he medically redshirt and redshirt him again next year due to lack of PT? Just a thought but doubt they do this[/quote] I don't think so. I think the NCAA looks very closely at the injury associated with the request for the second year. It has to be a legitimate season ender. ...

re: Arnsparger--Forgotten era - Thorny
Bob Brodhead resigned in October of 1986, effective Dec 1. Bill Arnsparger resigns Dec 6 1986. Mike Archer hired in December, before the Jan 1, 1987 Sugar Bowl. Joe Dean was hired in April of 1987. There was no permanent athletic director in place when Archer was hired in December of 1986. Tha...

re: La. priest arrested on 500 counts of possession of child porn - Thorny
[quote]Oh, so the dioceses did a self examination and that was the numbers they found huh? Im sure those numbers are very accurate. Was Boston just an anomaly then? 1/10 is a conservative estimate. You aren't factoring in the thousands of these cases that are swept under the rug, settled in ...

re: do you think the electoral college is fair? - Thorny
I am a fan of the Electoral College. "Fairness" isn't the issue, "balance" is. After all, we live in a republic, not a democracy. Mob rule isn't what we do (or at least, it shouldn't be.) While so many want to say that only the swing states matter, I would point out this. Al Gore wins the 2000 el...

re: La. priest arrested on 500 counts of possession of child porn - Thorny
[quote]Well, there's better than a 1 in 10 chance that any priest you know is fricking little boys and girls so this shouldn't be surprising. What's surprising is that it wasn't covered up by the church.[/quote] According to the most comprehensive study on the matter, "(T)he dioceses had been abl...

re: Stihl kombi - Thorny
I have the KM 56 power head, straight shaft trimmer, edger, and mini-cultivator. I have the old style, so it takes me about 10 pulls to get it started. But, I have never had problems with it in the three years I've had it. It still has plenty of torque for the jobs I need. My next attachments wi...

re: Which Ranters Attended the LSU vs ND game in 1998? - Thorny
I was there with my brother who is an ND grad. Two memories stick with me: 1. Before the game, an ND fan behind us asked if I thought Faulk was all that great. I said that I did, and he kind of shook it off. Right after his kickoff return TD, I turned and said, "See?". He said, "Wow, you were rig...

re: The pope has a ? for you WWII experts on the board - Thorny
I am a Catholic who likes and respects Pope Francis. I am also an Air Force historian, who knows another historian (James Kitchens, noted below) who has looked into this question in detail. The bottom line answer is that the Allies simply didn't have the technological capability to bomb the ca...

re: Supreme Court: Texas Abortion Restrictions Violate the Constitution - Thorny
[quote]The same as any other outpatient facility. [/quote] Okay, fine. But this is what that means. It means that the executive branch must actually inspect to that standard. In Pennsylvania, Kermit Gosnell's clinic wasn't inspected for 17 years. It means that the executive branch must be ...

re: Looking for older Tigers for some help, why did Billy Cannon Jr go to A&M? - Thorny
The joke when I was at LSU was that A&M was the only school that would take his dad's money. /rimshot. A&M did pay out some serious cash to recruits. They even gave Eric Dickerson a gold Trans Am, and he ended up going to SMU anyway. GEAUX TIGERS...

[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...
