re: Matt Mascona ( on Devon Godchaux Charges ) - OldManRiver
[quote]But he's been really testy today. Something must be going on[/quote] He missed yesterday's show b/c he was in Houston for a checkup on his son. I hope for his and his family's sake he's just tired and cranky from travel, and it has nothing to do with any news from the doctor....

re: Coaching youth sports...the parents. - OldManRiver
[quote]Y'all play U10, 8v8?[/quote] 7v7 actually. BRSC did some reshuffling this year to the rec leagues, it's all grade based now. So if you're in 4th grade, you play together regardless of birthday. I've got another kid playing 6th grade, and that's 9v9...

re: Y'all ready to black out Baton Rouge?!?! - OldManRiver
Gary has a live video on Facebook of 30-40 people in a room somewhere discussing breakout sessions and open dialogue. It feels like somebody is filming any one of the hundreds of company meetings or team building exercises you see at a Holiday Inn or La Quinta ...

[quote]I agree that it is tough to coach kids that don't really want to be out there.[/quote] That's the worst for me. I'm coaching my kids soccer team, 4th grade rec team here in BR. I don't understand the kids that show up to maybe 3/4 of the practices, miss 2-3 games b/c they want to go to a p...

re: The truth about Briles during the Baylor "scandal" (just FYI) - OldManRiver
[quote]What is his baggage? Please be specific. I'm not saying your wrong.[/quote] Recruiting. Every house Art Briles walks in, there will be 20 other coaches calling Mom and Grandma and every other female in the house telling them Briles lets his players rape women. Doesn't matter if its true or...

re: Would a change in leadership salvage the season - OldManRiver
[quote]Orgeron would make a great interim HC[/quote] You do risk the USC situation though. O gets the team and fan base fired up, finishes 8-4 and now you have a "controversy" when you pass him over and go for the permanent solution. Players would be vocal in advocating for him, fans too. Plus, ...

re: USC, ND, Miss. St, Auburn - OldManRiver
[quote]We need to get a head start[/quote] Do you really think it makes a difference? Agents and representatives will/have been talking regardless if coaches are employed or not. And Herman, Jimbo, or any other candidate aren't leaving their teams until their season is over. I've got no proble...

So what's the downside of making a coaching change now? - OldManRiver
If we hire some stiff and go 4-8 next year, is the fan base morale and support any lower than it is now? Does it really matter if we go to the Texas Bowl or not? This isn't the 1970's where only the winning big name teams got on TV and bowl money. We get a $20 million + check from the SEC if we g...

re: Defense yielded 230 yards in that half. - OldManRiver
[quote]This Auburn offense struggled in its previous games against P5 opponents[/quote] 478 yards against TAMU last week. Clemson did hold them to right around 300. Honestly, they are doing what they did in both of those games, move the ball around but flounder in the red zone and fail to score T...

According to Guilbeau, buy out is half of what is believed? - OldManRiver
[quote]Had Miles been fired postdated to Dec.31, 2015, his buyout would have been $15 million minus his salary of $4.3 million, according to his contract. That would have been a $10.7 million buyout. That minus his $4.3 million salary would be $6.4 this Dec. 31. It may depend on how one reads the co...

re: Mounting your tv and hiding the cables - OldManRiver
I'll add another vote for the Home Depot kit. Really well put together and very easy to do if you have even a modicum of skill with a saw and a drill. The only thing I'll add is be mindful of the type of HDMI cables you would run. I bought some Monoprice ones and didn't think about it too much. ...

For those stuck in traffic after games, where do you park/leave from? - OldManRiver
So full disclosure, I park in the Ag Lot at the corner of Highland/South Stadium every game. Outside of a handful of times in the last 15 years, I can generally walk all the way back to my car, head off of campus, and be at my house in Prairieville in less than an hour. Are there certain choke poi...
