re: LSU is not a rebuild. LSU hired O to avoid a rebuild. - Baloo
[quote]he O hire was sold to fans for continuity purposes, because we were NOT in a position that required a rebuild [/quote] This is what I don't understand. the hard part is ripping off the Band Aid and firing your coach. For example, Texas clung to Mack Brown for years, and they went sub 500. ...

re: Hollywood and politics. Harder and harder to enjoy some people's work. - Baloo
This is not the political board. If you want to argue the politics of a piece of art, that is fine, but we're not going to argue about Georgia Tech here, without any tethering to a specific movie/show. Stop it or get banned. This is the only warning. The topic is whether political views of cr...

re: cooler heads need to prevail - Baloo
Some fans want perfection, but most fans want a team that won't lose by 30 to Mississippi St. This was a terrible loss, and one of the worst by the program in two decades (even prior blowouts had better excuses - like Harris making his first start in Auburn). I don't think we do anyone any favors...

re: Forde: Coach O and Joe Alleva's seats are already warming up - Baloo
[quote]here are only two (2) winnable games on the SEC slate - A&M/Ole Miss.[/quote] That's absurd, and shows people aren't watching the rest of the SEC. Arkansas looked terrible. Auburn beat Mercer by 14, which is God awful. Florida and Tennessee put on a clinic of awful football. The most co...

re: Is there any rap music you'd recommend for your kids? - Baloo
Northern State. A lot of Beastie Boys. De la Soul. There's some tracks you have to skip, but those tend to work. And there's always Alphabet Aerobics by Blackalicious: https://youtu.be/MvPnM2Q1nwU...

re: RIP Grant Hart - Baloo
This one hurts. Grant Hart was a legend, and a big piece of my childhood. But the band broke up acrimoniously right before alt-rock took over the mainstream, so he missed out on the rewards of the foundation he laid. He had everyone's gushing awe, but he had no band, his house literally burned down,...

re: Recommend a good David Lynch film to watch tonight - Baloo
Though not as deranged as his other movies, I think Zodiac is a near perfect film. It's just not what you think of when you think of Lynch. ...

re: Clay Travis: Linda Cohn was suspended by ESPN when she said ESPN talked too much politics - Baloo
[quote] I get why people like him for calling out ESPN, but I don't see he's supposed to fit in with the old days people want back.[/quote] I think this thread is proof people don't want the old days back. People want to plug into the Outrage Machine, regardless of where they fall on the politic...

re: Based on the first game, who thinks Dalvin Cook is better then L. Fournette? - Baloo
I love Dalvin Cook and I didn't understand him falling in the draft. The dude can play. I think Fournette is better, but Cook will likely have better numbers because he plays on a functional offense with a multitude of weapons. Fournette is stuck in Jacksonville with Bortles, a near worthless QB. He...

re: Is the MSB buying Oklahoma this year? - Baloo
Never ever overlook a Kansas St team with a senior QB. TCU has a great coach and a solid D. Okie St can score and so can, to a lesser extent, West Virginia. That's a pretty tough schedule for OU, especially when you add a rematch with Okie St or K-State in the title game. Penn St, on the other ha...

re: RIP Len Wein. Co-Creator of Wolverine and Swamp Thing - Baloo
One of the true legends of the game. The international multi-ethnic All-New X-Men was his idea. At one point, he was writing Thor, Hulk, Spider-man, AND the Fantastic Four. He kept Marvel afloat in the early post-Lee years. He also hired Dave Gibbons to do the art on Watchmen, which he claimed w...

re: Movies That Perfectly Captured an era in Pop Culture - Baloo
[quote]SLC Punk[/quote] I love that they get little details right: like everything to do with Jason Siegel's character. NEVER screw with the normal looking guy hanging out with a bunch of punks in the 80s. That dude is insane. But also the moving between the tribes bit, and how fluid the groups w...

re: The scariest movie you've ever seen? - Baloo
The most scared I've ever been was the abduction scene in Fire in the Sky. That shite was terrifying, though the rest of the movie is meh. But most of the theater got up and left it was so scary, and I was almost hugging a stranger in another row, as our significant others had both abandoned us. ...
