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...

re: Can we finally stop the "Alleva screwed up Herman deal" bullshite - Thorny
[quote]I accepted a job once, then a week later I got a better offer for me and my family and I had to renege on the original offer was that dishonorable of me? [/quote] It depends. Did you use the first job offer to leverage yourself into getting the second job offer? There is evidence th...

re: Can we finally stop the "Alleva screwed up Herman deal" bullshite - Thorny
[quote]The point is, there was no coaching search. Alleva decided he would talk to representatives of Jimbo and Tom Herman and that was it. You know how I know there was no coaching search? It's because after a 2 month process of "searching", Alleva concluded that Ed Orgeron was the third best optio...

re: Why did Alleva not wait on the results of the UT/Herman situation? - Thorny
Waiting for Herman to talk to Texas makes him more expensive. Another thread said he asked for Saban-level money. His resume isn't yet worth that. By waiting, you tell him you might still pay $7mil, when he isn't worth it. O doesn't excite me, but waiting doesn't get us Herman. It's time to get ...

re: The decline is real, Geno tells it like it is- "not even the same program.." - Thorny
[quote]And LSU thought Pokey needed to go--she has coached for two different WNBA teams since, currently with the Indiana Fever.[/quote] Sadly, they did need to let Pokey go. Her actions put them in a an awkward position where the university could be caught in the middle of lawsuits regarding fav...

re: Pope Francis extends Catholic priests' right to forgive abortion - Thorny
This is not a practical change in the US. Bishops have always had the ability to delegate forgiveness for abortion to priests. The bishops of the US have universally delegated that authority to parish priests for a while now. The Pope is merely making that rule universal. ...

re: Thoughts from a Gators Fan, like you give a $&@# - Thorny
I was born in Florida and am a pure-bred Gator hater. I enjoy beating them more than anyone else we play. Nothing good for LSU comes from Bama continuing to win and play for national championships. I am in favor of any chance they have of losing. Not that the SECCG is such a chance. GEAUX ...

re: So what exactly was the last play supposed to be? - Thorny
Once we got the first and goal with 30 seconds left, we played the clock correctly. We had plenty of time to run up to four plays. If the last play had worked, it would have been the last play of the game and the Gators wouldn't have even had the chance to run back a kick. Play calling wasn't gr...

[quote]Ppl started to wake up and realize herman cant compete with saban..[/quote] And Jimbo can? Saban has never lost to any head coach that was one of his assistants. I don't think this is the final word, but I would be okay with Jimbo if that is the final choice. I still think Herman ha...

re: Someone ask O tonight if he got response from SEC office on ref calls - Thorny
By definition, the "tackle box" extends five yards on each side of the location of the center at the snap. For a reference, the goal posts are a little over 6 yards wide (18'6" as measured to the outside of the posts). Hurts and the center are half-way between the extra point hash and the left g...

re: So when does Alleva (and his coach pick) move on this thing? - Thorny
Let's assume the top three candidates are Herman, Fisher and Orgeron, in no particular order. None of those three will be playing in a championship game the first week of December. So, all of them will be available to hire by Wednesday of the week after Thanksgiving. Alleva already knows if He...

re: Alabama is not bringing their full "Million Dollar" band to BR - Thorny
They probably made this decision in the spring when Alleva was telling everyone that opposing bands would not be allowed to march at halftime. Bama probably opened up the extra seats pretty quickly. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: My Theory: LSU was worn out last year against Bama. - Thorny
[quote]The loss was simply a big hit on Harris on the TD pass that seemingly kept him from keeping the zone reads in the second half. . . . Now, I don't know if this was intentional as part of the offensive game plan (wouldn't surprise me with Cameron and Miles) or if Harris was scared to run after ...

re: Odd SECCG quote from the LSU page re the Florida rescheduling. - Thorny
True, but it doesn't match any of the conversations about the situation that we have heard. The media was conceding Florida's advantage in their race against Tennessee. They just thought we were sore losers for pointing it out. Under this rule, Florida had no advantage to not play the game. In f...
