re: Why is being an a-hole of a parent frowned upon? - dimet
With choices comes consequences. I applaud your stance. Your child is learning who he/she wants to be and who he/she doesn't want to be. Give them the freedom they've earned and they will grasp what the world is about......

re: Listening to early Elton John - dimet
The music is amazing...Paul Buckmasters orchestrations on his pre Yellow Brick Road days is so good! Tumbleweed Connection, Madman Across the Water, and Elton John has such musical depth! Blue Moves went back to that a bit but it was such a depressing listen as Bernie Taupin was in the throes of div...

re: Restoring vs. Stripping material and rebuilding on an old home - dimet
Foundation, electrical, plumbing, and lead paint abatement are the costliest and certainly the most critical needs. That house has a soul...lots of stories. I just moved into a 95 year old house here and I've loved the progress and the process of renovation. Enjoy it, if you choose to go that path.....

re: Self imposed sanctions are infuriating - dimet
Self imposed sanctions are the pre-emptive strike schools utilize hoping to prove to NCAA that "they've seen the light". The NCAA's rulings are capricious and painfully arbitrary. Ole Miss will be an example by the NCAA to prove their oversight ability. What would the result be if Saban, Meyer, Harb...

re: PMAC Concerts - dimet
Saw Elton John in '74 at the height of his popularity. Paid 8.50 to watch Springsteen on The River Tour...It lasted 3:30 hours...He came back for Born in the USA...he played for 3:45 hours...Zeppelin came in '77, George Harrison came, Fleetwood Mac came...For the 60's generation, ask about Independe...

re: Did LSU fans feel slighted when Paul Dietzel bolted for Army & later USCe? - dimet
Yes. He swore that he would never leave LSU. Talk to some of his former players about the loss they felt. He did have a very strong connection to Army from his time there with Red Blaik and they were going through an extremely difficult time at West Point with the academic scandal. West Point needed...

re: Back to the gym next week. Need a workout plan - dimet
Think 6 sets per muscle group...chest, back, legs, arms, shoulders...Start at 12-15 per set...Use multiple lifts to achieve the 6 set threshold...also consider compound lifts...squats, hang cleans, LIGHT dead lifts, push press...that is a solid base workout that will prepare you for where you want t...

re: Derek and the Dominos. How good were they? - dimet
The solo's by both DA and EC on "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" are amazing. I've read that Clapton was in the throes of his unrequited love for Patty Harrison and the pain is palpable in his playing. An incredible amalgam of talent in that group!...

re: LSUNurse, loooking for answers for what can be wrong with my 2 year old - dimet
Look into his family history. Abuse, neglect, isolation can all lead to this behavior. This behavior may not be your normal but it seems to be your child's normal. Have him evaluated by a behavior therapist and see what the results are. I applaud you for your willingness to foster a child...brave, k...

re: Why was Canada fired from NC State? - dimet
Debbie Yow, the AD at NCSU, needed to appease some of the powers that be. She told Doeren to fire Canada to achieve that goal. They had some slip ups and Jacobey Brissett had plateaued a bit but they had some serious injuries to their best RB's. Canada was on VACATION when he got the call. As a frie...

re: Pitt Fan's Thoughts on Matt Canada (LSU related) - dimet
It was more of a personality conflict between Doren and Canada. NCSU had some personnel issues that Canada could not address even with Jacoby Brissette. As my friend said when he was hired by Pitt, 24 hours after being let go by NCSU, "He didn't stay fired long". ...

re: Great Example of LSU Good Ole Boy Network Re: Stovall Firing - dimet
We keep forgetting that Coach Stovall was never the real choice for LSU football. He was this "stop gap" measure put in place by Paul Dietzel. He was never truly given any chance to succeed as in that time, assistant coaches were hired on 1 year contracts. All of his assistants until Coach Nix in '...

re: fedora would be an absolute disaster at LSU - dimet
Fedora is a good coach. Is he that "walk on water", "sure thing" kinda guy...absolutely not. He's Mike Gundy with a beard. Offense will be the strong suit but his teams always find a way to lose 1-3 games a year without reason. They just get out played. He is not a home run hire......

re: Goodnight H. Lawrence Fedora - dimet
David Cutcliffe is one of the few guys in college football who's seen it all...he's as smart and clever as they come on a football field. HS coaches here in NC love him as he comes into their office as one of them...no ego, no pretense...just a good, smart man. Would do wonders with major talent....

re: PETE Jenkins factor - dimet
Understand that Pete Jenkins has created a system of D-line play. Watch d-linemen when they attack the offensive LOS. Coach Jenkins has taught a technique that is the MO for defensive linemen. He's truly one of the greatest d-line coaches ever......

re: So Cameron's playbook didn't have quick slants or "easy passes" - dimet
The difference between last night and the previous nights was that the play did not run through Coach Miles. I would find it difficult to have to run a play through someone for approval every down, every series, every game. Time management difficulties can be attributed to being forced to come up wi...

re: Someone educate me on Sam Nader - dimet
Sam Nader started as the TE coach for Coach McClendon. If you ever watch vintage Tiger film from the late 70's, Coach Nader is the man signaling in plays/formations with the groovy red sweat bands. An absolute gentleman...was Coach Stovall's and Coach Arnsparger's recruiting coordinator. Just a terr...

re: I Want To Know About This D-Line Hire... - dimet
Pete Jenkins was initially hired by Coach Stovall to coach the Dline. He is an icon among dline coaches. Techniques he devised are in play today. There truly is a school of d-line coaches that are Jenkins acolytes. Start in 1980 and go through the Archer tenure and a while for Coach Saban and if the...
