re: Today is the 16-year anniversary of the Funk Dunk - Jack Burton on 1/29/16 at 3:38 pm
[quote] He did the same dunk to a scrub team earlier in the year. I can't remember who though.[/quote] Grambling. LSU thumped them by 60 or some ridiculous number. I remember seeing the breakaway in the Zona game and knowing he was gonna do that dunk. Nearly took the roof off the place....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Anyone here at the 1959 Halloween game? - Jack Burton on 7/5/15 at 9:42 am
My grandparents were there and my grandmother's favorite story about the game was about the Ole Miss fan who kept asking her, "where's your Billy Cannon?" all night.

re: Another Look at the Game Winning Shot (In Pictures) - Jack Burton on 3/8/15 at 12:57 pm
[quote] I guarantee you Hornsby shooting that shot from that spot was an option on the play. [/quote] Agreed. They have run plays specifically designed for Hornsby to shoot from the corner. I can remember the game at WVU where we needed a 3 to tie and it was a similar spot. They've also set him...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Elbert Robinson: how is he developing? - Jack Burton on 1/11/15 at 11:10 am
He has dropped a lot of weight since getting to LSU and he's still struggling with stamina and quickness. I hope he improves in those areas (and knowing his defensive rotations) bc you can't coach height. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Alabama has killed us as a championship calibre program... - Jack Burton on 11/9/14 at 1:43 pm
I've thought about it. I don't think about my team that way. The minute I start believing that they can't improve or compete with other programs then I'll stop watching them play. Call it what you like, but that's how I support the Tigers. There was a coach that diagnosed the LSU fanbase with ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Alabama has killed us as a championship calibre program... - Jack Burton on 11/9/14 at 1:16 pm
A definitive statement that LSU is "dead" as a championship caliber program is asinine and a knee jerk reaction. Yes, they have won 4 in a row against LSU, but to say that means that the Tigers can't or will never beat them or win another championship is an opinion. Not fact. Thus, my opinion that t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: WWYD as Wisconsin Coach? - Jack Burton on 9/4/14 at 8:29 pm
If the coach decides not to go for it, then they should have run out the back of the endzone and taken the safety. Yes, gives up points but it doesn't use as much time, you can still try to put them in their own territory with a kick or go for broke with an onside. TD will still win it for you and...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
