re: Sammy Hagar or David Lee Roth? - vandelay industries
I'd rather see VH with DLR on his worst night, playing the Diver Down album twice in its entirety, than seeing the 20 best Van Hagar songs of my choice. ...

re: Top 5 Concerts you have seen - vandelay industries
Grateful Dead: Tampa Stadium '95....not an "elite" show by GD standards, but we had front-row seats in front of Jerry, and we still had a blast. Extra bonus was the Black Crowes opened. Phish: Big Cypress Y2K....if you were there, you know. If not, there's no point explaining. Rush: St. Pete, ...

re: How much did your football team affect your college decision? - vandelay industries
I went to a small private high school, so I figured a small college would be the way to go. After one semester, I realized that idea wasn't so hot, so I transferred to Auburn. They weren't "my" football team at the time, so going there wasn't determined b/c of that...but the fact they [i]had[/i] a f...

re: Top 5 teams I've ever seen in my life - vandelay industries
Ironically, FSU's fatigue on defense probably helped them win. If anyone on their D had enough gas in the tank to make a shoelace tackle on Tre Mason, Auburn would've still been poised enough to eventually score, but with much less time on the clock. Their D was grabbing air in the 4th quarter, so I...

re: Let's discuss some very underrated comedies. - vandelay industries
Apparently this movie has a love/hate reaction with people, but I personally thought Keanu was a hilarious flick. And yeah, MacGruber is great too. I kinda wish I saw more from his A-Team sidekicks, but I admit what happened was a pretty ballsy move for a laugh :lol:...

re: How would you rank The Shield, Sopranos and the Wire? - vandelay industries
I don't know if it's the "best" from an artistic standpoint, but The Shield has the best replay value of those three shows to me, and the final two eps are on the short list of excellence....

re: Didn't Realize Boston Album was a solo project - vandelay industries
He could've been in the conversation when talking about the greats, if only he'd picked up the pace a little more, lol...instead, he got passed over by the other greats in that era. So much, by the time he went back on the road (Third Stage), he was trying to keep up with the Joneses by aping EVH gu...

re: Didn't Realize Boston Album was a solo project - vandelay industries
By most accounts, Hashain is the full-time drummer on those early albums, except for Jim Masdea on "Rock And Roll Band". However, only one song on the debut features the whole band (Let Me Take You Home Tonight), and I believe Barry might play a solo on "Long Time"...other than that, Tom pretty much...

re: Didn't Realize Boston Album was a solo project - vandelay industries
Boston is definitely a solo project moreso than a band. That said, for a guy with such a good ear for guitar tone, the drum sound on 1/2 of Third Stage and everything beyond is horrific. He should be glad someone insisted those drum tracks on the first two albums be re-recorded, because otherwise th...

re: Expand Playoffs? Go to all postseason first - vandelay industries
I'm not for 16 teams. I was just giving an example that a 1 vs. 16 game wouldn't get anyone nearly as excited as a 1 vs. 8. I think 16 would dilute things, and I bet the overwhelming majority feel the same way. A 1 vs. 8 is still a Top-10 matchup that'd be a huge deal in the regular season, so I fai...

re: Expand Playoffs? Go to all postseason first - vandelay industries
I disagree. There's an outside chance that a 1 vs. 16 regular season matchup on the west coast might still get scheduled for a late kickoff, but no way would a 1 vs. 8...that'd be the Game Of The Week for any weekend. As long as there are more major conferences than playoff spots, 4 doesn't cut it I...

re: I keep seeing the argument for "the 4 best teams should be in the playoff" - vandelay industries
Plus, a #1 vs. #8 matchup in the regular season would be a Game Of The Week, so a 1-8 playoff matchup won't leave a bad taste in anyone's mouths.......

re: I keep seeing the argument for "the 4 best teams should be in the playoff" - vandelay industries
[quote]Not neccesarily. If you went 4 teams and only let conference champs in, there would be enough worry that your conference might not make it in[/quote] But then fate would be at the hands of a committee, and that "eyeball test" subjectivity comes into play. You gotta give 'em all a shot IMO....

re: I keep seeing the argument for "the 4 best teams should be in the playoff" - vandelay industries
If it was [i]entirely[/i] about the "most deserved" instead of the "best", then all the big schools might as well schedule nothing but cupcakes for their OOC schedule. Those marquee matchups should count for something, IMO anyway. 8 teams is a fair number: it'd reward ALL the conference champion...

re: Why is 'Friends' So Much More Popular Internationally Than 'Seinfeld'? - vandelay industries
I have a couple of friends in Australia who love Seinfeld, so I'm gonna assume the OP means Friends is more popular in countries where English isn't a primary language. With Seinfeld, it's not always what they say, but [i]how[/i] they say it which makes it so damn funny, so it'd probably fall flat i...

re: Do you consider AU a well-coached football team? - vandelay industries
After the Cox pass in the Iron Bowl, I commented to my friend that Gus is convinced he's coaching for the Harlem Globetrotters. So I'd say AU is well-coached in the way the Globetrotters are well-coached, except Gus doesn't realize the Generals aren't on the schedule every week. We're better this se...

re: Ranking the CFB Playoff Resumes : Is it possible the B1G gets 3 in? - vandelay industries
Conference champs automatically in, the remaining 3 at-large. The regular season would matter, more teams would still have something to play for, and teams wouldn't give up on scheduling strong OOC matchups. More than 8 would be diluting things, less than 8 minimizes the importance of winning your o...

re: Our biggest issue now is - vandelay industries
What's sad is, with the roster we have right now + the overall state of the conference, this season was actually there for the taking, and we could've been in the playoff talk whether we had beaten Bama or not. Part of me almost wishes Clemson had blown the doors off us, just so I wouldn't be second...
