re: 3 star general demoted after using a government credit card in strip clubs - Thorny
Throughout my career, I came across many colonels and generals where my first impression was, "how did that guy survive being a Captain?"...

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: LA guys that went to Bama - Thorny
I grew up in Florida. My mother highly encouraged me and my siblings to go to college out of state. She wanted all of us to see a world beyond. It's not for everyone, but I can't get too upset with kids that do it. GEAUX TIGERS...

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]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: 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...
