re: Maine Governor makes a fool of himself: ‘John Lewis Ought To Look At History’ - larry289
[quote]I'm a liberal and would have been considered a Republican in 1860. [/quote] You're conflating a few things in your liberal definition. Your point being in 1860 it would be considered liberal to be anti-slavery. Generally true, but the term now includes a lot of "non-liberal" thinking, e.g....

[quote]That would be the worst idea ever. Everyone behind Trump would be shaking their head if not leaving over that. Just ignore them.[/quote] Dammed, every time I try to slip a little satire in, I get reprimanded...just kidding guys. I just thought it would entertain the board. You're right, ...

re: One-third of House Democrats refuse to participate in peaceful transfer of power - larry289
I think in a them of unity, Trump, in his inaugural address should call each out by name and identify them as the problem that currently plagues our nation; self interest before national interest. No more than 4 minutes. I'll volunteer to write the text....

re: Are y'all watching Tucker Carlson right now? - YouTube Link Up - larry289
[quote]I think the early comments are based on most not realizing what the guy was up to. By the end, he cracked and showed he was just trying to get someone to fact check him. [/quote] Well, that makes three of us that caught what this really was. If you review the video again, either Tucker was ...

re: LSU Bowl Game Viewing Experience - larry289
Steve, We could have used you on Omaha beach my man! Hell of a story. I'm still waiting for the Clemson-Bama title game replay to come on so I can send my son-in-law another 200 nasty e-mails. Best I can tell Bama must have had it banned from replay on cable networks???...

re: Watching LSU vs Tennessee 1959 - larry289
[quote]The big controversy about surrounding that game is weather Cannon scored on 4th down at the goal line. He insists that he was over. Does this film give a definitive answer? This call cost us another National Championship. I was probably throwing a fit although I was only one year old at the t...

re: Watching LSU vs Tennessee 1959 - larry289
Good Times, That puts me one year older than you, glad to know folks like ourselves still have those recollections of a special time in LSU football. I've been luck enough to see all three of LSU's national titles! PS: The Cannon fumble you reference was actually just a bad exchange between he...

[quote]here's the video with a still shot [/quote] Thanks for that video clip. The still shot is the exact position the Knoxville paper had shown in the photo that I am referring to. It was taken from the right sideline (as you look at your video shot) with a telephoto lens. In the video, you ca...

re: Watching LSU vs Tennessee 1959 - larry289
Jimmydatiger, Did a google thing for the photo, but couldn't find. BUT, I did find this on a Tennessee site. Tennessee's stop of Cannon's 2-pt conversion ranks #5 all-time in Tennessee's greatest plays. Scroll down the page and they have the audio link to the play from their broadcast. [link=...

[quote]It was the Notre Dame box. [/quote] We have a winner. The Notre Dame box was a more modern variation of the single wing formation. A single wing includes the tailback (primary ball carrier), quarterback, blocking back, and a wingback. My team in high school (60-64) ran this, sometimes t...

re: Watching LSU vs Tennessee 1959 - larry289
[quote]What I meant about the kicking accuracy was not getting the 2-point conversion and hoping for getting into field goal range later for 3. Taking a chance on being down by 1 point was a bigger chance due to having to get much closer for a 3-point field goal later.[/quote] In that context it do...

[quote]Does the vid in the OP have the conversion?[/quote] It does, but it is from likely press box area. The view is down and the attempt was on the left of screen. Yes, it is shown on the video, but you can't see anything that would prove it. That said, the Knoxville paper the next morning cer...

[quote]Each time they did it they were deep in their own territory, so I assume it was to catch them without their return team on the field to try and change field position.[/quote] This is correct and also, from I believe John Ferguson, it was also to provide a 2nd chance in the event of a rush wh...
