re: The best critique I have read of 538 - Cold Cous Cous
His basic assumption is that companies for whom "political coverage is part of their core mission" [i]aren't interested[/i] in getting lots of clicks for their political coverage. Whereas, because politics are not part of ESPN's core mission, they [i]are[/i] interested in getting lots of clicks. ...

re: OT lawyers Advice - Cold Cous Cous
This is depressingly common. 1. File complaints with the Louisiana State Bar and with the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board - reach out Chuck Plattsmeir and Cheri Grodsky separately. 2. File police report. 3. Keep [i]all[/i] documents e-mails and texts, even if you think they're not importa...

re: Are music fans blinded by their fandom? - Cold Cous Cous
The insult "fanboy" never made a lick of sense to me. "Oh you're only saying Self-Portrait is good because you're a Dylan [i]fanboy[/i]" is basically tautological; like saying "you only Dylan records because you like Dylan records." ...

[quote]How little? Buy them guitars, teach them, practice while you teach. That's my plan with my son[/quote] Getting them interested in music from an early age sounds like a great idea until a one year old barfs directly into your Strat's tremolo assembly. Try cleaning that out. ...

re: Recommendations from car guys on Mid size SUV or luxury sedan - Cold Cous Cous
While my wife loves her Outback (and can fit three car seats), and it easily fits within your budget, I feel that I would be remiss if I didn't point out that the Subaru plant is, in fact, located in Lafayette Indiana....

re: Judges who graduated from LSU give harsher sentences after LSU loses - Cold Cous Cous
Very interesting and not surprising. There have been studies showing that EBR retail sales are lower after a loss and higher after a win. And it makes sense if you generalize it to "judges give harsher sentences when they are in a bad mood." LSU losses just create a particular, state-wide kind ...

re: If miles is coaching for his job...Why not put all the chips on the table? - Cold Cous Cous
You mean like go for it on 4th and 1 from your own side of the field? Or call a pass with 55 seconds left when all you need is a FG to win? The rant hasn't been overly enamored of either of those aggressive decisions....

re: The one positive to look at.... - Cold Cous Cous
Typical 24 hour melt. Plus there is a vocal contingent around here who actively enjoys LSU losses so they can gloat. We'll see what we look like against State. They are terrible so if we lose or struggle its going to be a rough rough year. ...

re: Special Teams Is the Worst I've Ever Seen - Cold Cous Cous
The shanks are because they're being asked to drop the ball on a dime so that prveto's overly precious coverage schemes will work out. Zero margin for error on those kicks which is completely unrealistic for a college punter, much less one who has never played gridiron football before. ...

re: 53 & 1/3 yards - Cold Cous Cous
This is the kind of game we used to win on strength of special teams. Miles had a five year stretch of truly elite special teams and it probably bought them a win a year with big returns, kick blocks, something. Now our special teams are literally bottom half of the country. Hell we damn near missed...
