re: Why was the Eye at midfield offset in 2000? - FlyingTiger06
[quote]Going through YouTube, looks like the eye was offset in 1984, 1985, 1991, 1992, 1994, and 2000. Eye in middle of field since 2001. Oddly enough, eye looks to be in the middle of the field in 1986.[/quote] OK, now that's just really weird then....

re: Why was the Eye at midfield offset in 2000? - FlyingTiger06
Thanks for everyone who provided an answer. I know this wasn't breaking news, but I was curious. I figured someone on the Rant would know or would have had a legit sauce; you know, like their cousin's wife's brother's next-door neighbor was friends with the guy who's son was a band member at the t...

Why was the Eye at midfield offset in 2000? - FlyingTiger06
Was watching the replay of the Miss St game from 2000 on ESPNU last night and noticed that the Eye was centered between the North 45 and the 50 instead of right on midfield. Link to video below. You can see it right at the 2:35 mark of the video. [link=(https://youtu.be/sjv_Prcijq0?t=154)]LINK[...

re: Tom Benson to build Dixie Beer brewery in New Orleans - FlyingTiger06
[quote]Dixie Blackened VooDoo[/quote] I like it too. As a matter of fact, it's another way I know that Shreveport/Bossier city is really Lower Arkansas and not Louisiana. Was never able to get Dixie beer up here (even prior to Katrina), but a friend of mine was able to get it in Colorado Spring...

re: Do you think people with down syndrome are unfortunate? - FlyingTiger06
My brother-in-law has Down Syndrome and is a complete blessing to all of us. He lives without ever worrying what others think about him, loves his family without question, has the honesty (sometimes brutally honest) of a child, and never complains about anything. ...

re: Worst calls (any sport) that have benefitted the Tigers? - FlyingTiger06
Early Doucet's "catch" to win the game against ASU in 2005. He did not maintain control of that ball as he was going to the ground. I think we got a sympathy call because of all the stuff with Katrina. ...

re: U.S. just dropped the mother of all bombs ( non-nuclear) - FlyingTiger06
[quote]The Yemen op is the one that has me a bit confused.[/quote] I think that is a single 2,000 lb JDAM with an impact (also known as instantaneous) fuze setting. I was trying to compare its fireball and blast radius to the video I posted. In that video, there are five separate strikes. The ...

[quote]So, you're saying it was 2 bombs. If not that's a classic secondary.[/quote] Different posts. The two bombs I was referring to was in the second set of explosions in the video I posted. You can clearly see two different explosions in that group. The one I was saying was not a secondary ...

[quote]tke857[/quote] Roll your eyes if you want. Look at the second explosion in this video: [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHGwPmsJMF8)]JDAM explosions[/link] A lot of those are detonating after at least a 5ms delay, hence all the dirt and less smoke/fire. Putting a slight delay ...

re: U.S. just dropped the mother of all bombs ( non-nuclear) - FlyingTiger06
[quote]another angle[/quote] Looks like different events. In the second one you can see that there's already been one explosion before the second one which causes the big fireball. In the first video, there's no other explosion. Even still, that's really not that huge of a blast radius or f...

[quote]quote: They are designed to be dropped on targets by the Boeing-made B-52 Stratofortress long-range bomber or Northrop Grumman Corp.'s B-2 stealth bomber. I'm confused.
