re: Death Valley vs. Death Valley - tigger1
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...

re: I'm sure you guys have already discussed Dunkirk ad nauseum, but DAMN - tigger1
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...

re: Billy Cannon statue?- don't do it - tigger1
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...

re: Last Chance U II - tigger1
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...
