re: Interim GBFTL Director, Llinas has exciting halftime shows planned this year - deaconscholar
You are grossly misinformed. At least half of the LSU band directors since the late 1940s have come directly from high school, including L. Bruce Jones and Bill Swor, among others. Get your facts straight....

re: South Carolina Band Plays LSU Alma Mater... - deaconscholar
Welcome to the earth. What planet are you from? The band and the sports program aren't in competition - aren't now, never have been, never will be. The band is THE most visible part of the fans' love of LSU. And for your information it always has been. When I arrived in 1962 I became a part of ...

re: New policy bans opposing bands from performing in TS - deaconscholar
What? This has to be a joke. If not, it's going to come back to bite LSU - hard. Is there anyone with brains and common sense left at LSU? I suspect they're trying to get rid of the LSU band....

re: Roy King is suing LSU - deaconscholar
Right on - on all counts! LSU had the same problem with Tom Tyra back in the 60s. He was finally fired and LSU brought in Bill Swor who turned the band into something special. Less so, but interesting, were the situations with L. Bruce Jones and Nick Rouse. Even Bill Swor left under difficult ci...

Be very careful about Roy King's attorney's comments. What she says doesn't make sense. Looks to me like the administration handled this one fairly well - for a change....

re: Petition to support Roy King - deaconscholar
Wait just a minute. Roy may administer the band budget, but the budget is under the athletic department and thus not at the discretion of any one individual, be it Roy or anyone else. While he might be a part of the discussion, the conversation is between the School of Music and the athletic depar...

re: Another incredibly embarrassing day for LSU basketball - deaconscholar
Sad. Very sad. Coach Jones is way over his head at a major university. I'm getting tired of being embarrassed. The A&M loss, bowing out of the NIT, and now this press conference. Beginning with the Les Miles fiasco it's obvious that Joe Alleva and the administration don't have a clue how to han...

re: Props to Steele for the way this went down - deaconscholar
Good, insightful post. It's also Miles' way of doing things - quiet, professional, respectful. Whatever you want to say about wins and losses, we can be proud of the way Coach Miles handles things. Want to wonder about Chavis....

re: "Remember the 90's" people are actually making a case FOR firing - deaconscholar
An interesting, well-presented point of view. I disagree. The problem was that we fired a fine coach who should not have been let go. Then we couldn't hire a quality coach. As in every hiring/firing at every school, it takes lots of skill, insight, and luck. A few schools do it right, most are ...

re: The Alleva Leak is Bad for LSU. - deaconscholar
This news is a serious black eye for LSU. Neither King Alexander nor Joe Alleva have demonstrated any sense of professionalism or common sense. A major university with a major athletic program shouldn't rely on "on-the-job-training." If this continues to play out the way it's started, it seems that...
