re: Death Valley vs. Death Valley - tigger1 on 8/15/17 at 7:08 pm
Clemson did not start the Death Valley slogan, that honor goes all the way back to the 1910's, when a sport writer called a Northeastern school's new bowl stadium Death Valley. The question still is did Grantland Rice called Tiger stadium Death Valley in the 1930's. When they were trying to ge...

Hitler Moves East, vol. 1 of Hitler's War on Russia Scorched Earth, vol 2 of Hitler's War on Russia Paul Carell These 2 books give a base line on the war from the German side, very good books written long ago. These books cover from the start until mid 1944; and the total collapse of the G...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: I'm sure you guys have already discussed Dunkirk ad nauseum, but DAMN - tigger1 on 8/4/17 at 7:15 pm
I have not seen the movie, but do have a question. Did they ever show a Spitfire roll over? The early models Spits had a very bad flaw, the engine would near stop running due to lack of fuel if rolled to far and totally stop if rolled over. This problem was not fixed unto between March-May 1941...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Billy Cannon statue?- don't do it - tigger1 on 8/4/17 at 12:15 pm
I told many LSU big wigs no statues for any players, any time, any sports. Does LSU know his pre LSU, Istrouma days? Billy has a troubled past, and I am glad he has gotten his life on the right track. But LSU no matter the athlete, should have no statues for sport figures. Our true her...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: I have heard that "The Patriot" is terribly inaccurate and offensive to the British - tigger1 on 7/30/17 at 5:08 pm
It is a very bad movie from the historical point of view. Getting many points in history wrong, that being said it was a good movie until near 1/3 the way into the movie. Just know this, the revolutionary war was not a nice war you see in most history books. The British wanted to control ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Last Chance U II - tigger1 on 7/23/17 at 7:01 pm
Allen impressed me, as did Johnson. How in the world was Allen caught up in an armed robbery? Of the coaches only the OC impressed me. But to be fair we didn't get enough on the other coaches except the dc/dl coach. Brittany Wagner seemed to care about the players more than many of the pl...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: LSU v. Wake Forest 1979 Tangerine Bowl - tigger1 on 7/17/17 at 1:10 pm
It was shown live on ESPN, and they have changed the first game on EPSN about 4 different times now, ESPN does not even know their on history. The game was blacked out in Louisiana and shown a few days later. ESPN made a huge deal about this game in 1979. Also remember ESPN broadcast USFL f...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
