re: Have you ever known someone who was murdered - Thorny
The 12-year-old daughter of my first cousin was abducted and murdered after getting off the school bus and walking down the dirt road to their house. The case got national attention, but has never been solved. My brother's high school girlfriend was the victim of a murder-suicide by her next boyf...

re: Golf Shoes, what do you wear? - Thorny
I love my FootJoy Contours. Very comfortable. My previous pair of Adidas didn't quite fit right in the heel, which is a surprise since Adidas running shoes fit me pretty well. YMMV. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: Did Tommy Hodson even lift? - Thorny
Hell of a competitor and clear leader of the team. He got a totally raw deal in the NFL. Had to start as a rookie on what is arguably the worst non-expansion team since the merger (only the 08 Lions might have been worse). That Patriot team went 1-15 and was miserable at every other position. The...

re: Offensive foul -- LSU in Bonus -- No FTs? - Thorny
[quote]Player control fouls are not shooting fouls when the opponent is in the bonus. Been that way forever. Team control fouls were added about 10 or so years ago.[/quote] Hunh, I don't seem to remember it that way. Oh well, I can't keep up with basketball rules. Thanks....

Offensive foul -- LSU in Bonus -- No FTs? - Thorny
Calling the rules experts: Twice in the second half tonight, a Vandy player was called for charge. In both cases, LSU was in the bonus (for the second, LSU was in double bonus), but they were not awarded free throws. In neither case did Jones argue the point. Has there been some rule change th...

re: Firm proposes inner loop for BTR - Thorny
[quote]A) A northern loop would be cheaper and easier to build. B) More interstate trucker traffic comes through via i-12. C) It is easier to connect i-10 to a northern bypass than it is to connect i-12 to a southern bypass. [/quote] I can see A & B, but how can C be true? They would essential...

re: Firm proposes inner loop for BTR - Thorny
To improve the situation, you have to build a new bridge across the river in a new corridor. That means a southern loop that goes all the way to 12. The fact that so many plant workers hit the bridge Eastbound at 3pm means that the Lafayette=>NOLA traffic isn't the problem, it's the plant traffic. ...

re: If you could be Brandon Harris's personal coach, what would you ask of him - Thorny
Lots of people take the "he doesn't know the playbook" meme and think, "what does he have to know beyond how to toss the ball to Fournette?" The reality is much deeper. I have a friend who is the father of a successful FCS level college QB. (At 5'9", he was too short for the big schools; was told...

re: Les Miles' recent bowl record - a little perspective - Thorny
[quote]BTW, I don't think the cotton, gator, liberty, or bluebonnet bowl was considered a national championship caliber competition.

re: Les Miles' recent bowl record - a little perspective - Thorny
You're right--I wasn't thinking. We've had one QB reach the NFL since 2007. We will see how he pans out. We will all be proud if Mett turns in a Stabler or Todd type career. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: Bill Clark now into the fold?? - Thorny
[quote]He's a guy that could be anywhere from a F to an A.

re: Bill Clark now into the fold?? - Thorny
Pros: Young and energetic. Teaches aggressive defense. Has some seasoning as a head coach to give him better perspective. Cons: Won't be here long. He's intent on being a head coach and will use an SEC DC position as a stepping stone. He would be a strong B+ hire. Not as good as CP or Vena...

re: What's The Deal With This Gluten Intolerance Stuff? - Thorny
I can say this. When I follow the "Wheat Belly" diet (low carbs and no wheat), I feel better, lose weight and my measured blood sugar decreases. When I replaced wheat with "gluten free" substitutes, my blood sugar pushed into prediabetic levels. Eliminating wheat, most other grains and eating vegeta...
