re: Someone that never gets mentioned that needs to be shown the door... - Thorny
Everyone complains that Alabama is always bigger, stronger, and faster than us. They talk about how good their S&T program is. You know who taught their red-headed S&T coach everything he knows? Tommy Moffitt....

re: State of the SEC and LSU - Thorny
[quote]Saban really has destroyed the conference. All the established coaches that used to be around either left or were fired. The coaching arms race to find someone that can beat someone has lead to a bunch of average or worse coaches in the conference and most of the Saban assistants have bee...

re: Defend the Position: Where do Civil Rights and Freedom of Business Association connect? - Thorny
[quote]The cake issue was always stupid, because it involved custom work. Any custom vendor should be able to pick and choose the work they want to do. That's completely different than a store refusing to sell a bag of chips to someone[/quote] Exactly. I would add, this also has nothing to...

re: Camping - Boy Scouts - Thorny
I was a Cubmaster and a Scoutmaster for my four boys. I never needed or wanted anything bigger than a 7x7 3 man. However, it does matter how old your son is. If he is in Cubs, he will be tenting with you. My wife never went camping with us, so I didn't need to fit more than me and two kids into i...

re: ESPN Classic now LSU vs Ohio State 1988 Loss 36 to 33 - Thorny
What really hurt was that the team let that game get into their heads. The next week, they played at Florida and were never mentally in the game. The Tigahs lost 19-6 in a game that wasn't that close to an inferior Florida team. Thankfully, they were able to get the ship righted for the must-win...

re: Midnight on a Navy Destroyer: People involved in preventing collisions - Thorny
From my experience in dealing with safety incidents in the Air Force, there was likely a long chain of events that led to these accidents. I know the AF doesn't do things exactly the same way, but this principle tends to hold in my observations of all major system-level accidents. Somewhere, some...

re: Why was the Eye at midfield offset in 2000? - Thorny
[quote]The only thing I can come up with is if the entire tiger face was centered on the 50, that the right eye would be between the 45-50, and the left eye would be between the 50-45, so they initially painted it that way?[/quote] They first did it in the mid 80s, either 83 or 84. It was always ...

Need a fark -- CalExit flag - Thorny
Can I get someone to Photoshop a proposed "CalExit" flag? I'm thinking of using the standard California flag, but add in a Confederate Battle Flag on a pole being held by the bear, with "CalExit" replacing the words on the bottom. Thanks in advance....

[quote]shoulda rented those out as pre-game tailgate rooms, etc.[/quote] In principle, this sounds like a good idea. However, considering the security needs of a crowd of 102,321 and the level of comfort expected by the big donors, that will never happen in any of the dorms. Nobody will pay b...
