re: Honda Ridgeline and Nissan Titan opinions/reviews from the OB? - Thorny
I have a 2011 Titan that I bought used in 2013. It has the crew cab and short (5'11") bed. 4WD. SV trim level. I am satisfied. I have used it to tow a 3500# scout trailer with no problem (it does not have the "Big-Tow" package). The back seats had the most leg room I could find at the time I ...

re: LSU Won 2007 NC with Saban's Players?When did Miles become an idiot - Thorny
[quote]2008 was the beginning of his downfall.[/quote] It's a lot more complicated than that. Les has never had full support in the LSU family. When things have gone bad, those that don't support him come out of the woodwork. This goes all the way back to the 05 Tennessee game, where LSU bl...

re: No Full Band Trips During The Regular Season....Thanks Joe - Thorny
[quote]I just hope it doesn't end up as it did during the Broadhead Administration. The band had to organize its own transportation to Oxford 1 yr in the 80s. They carpooled enough members but not the whole band.[/quote] Ah, yes, I was on the "Impromptu Road Trip". This actually happened during t...

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: 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...
