re: What is the point of the fake stats from the scrimmages? - OldManRiver on 8/25/15 at 10:11 pm
I guess I worded my point poorly. I don't care that the numbers are IMO bull shite. I don't care if he gives stats at all, or makes up stuff on the fly while he's on the podium. I was just wondering what his motivation might be to do so. That's all, in the end it doesn't make a damn bit of differe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]How do you know they're fake?[/quote] Les has said that we've thrown for 250 in all 3 scrimmages. Pretty interesting coincidence huh? Also, we apparently ran 80-110 plays tonight, and most were red zone according to Les, which is why the QB yardage is low. That's fine, except we also ran...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
What is the point of the fake stats from the scrimmages? - OldManRiver on 8/25/15 at 9:58 pm
It's obvious Les doesn't want ANY information in the hands of the media or opponents. That's his right as the coach, and while I think he's way more paranoid that is necessary, his call. What I don't understand is why he feels the need to put any numbers out at all, especially when they are so obv...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (13)

Do you have an iCloud account yourself? If so, you can use family sharing to link hers to yours, and then implement purchase restrictions so she can't go nuts. As far as the actual device, my advice would be a refurbed one from Apple which you can find [link=(http://www.apple.com/shop/browse/hom...

If it wasn't 2 minutes from my office, and on my way home from work, I would probably take my recurring business elsewhere as I've had more than 1 "miscommunication" with them in the past. But they have a pretty damn good selection and it's just way too easy for me to pop in and out....

While I would prefer that an FCS team never touch the field in Tiger Stadium again, I also don't think LSU should be a martyr and make a stand just so the fans can take pride on message boards. If the other SEC teams are doing it, no reason we shouldn't do it either. Hopefully the new commissioner...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
