re: Favorite wins over Ole Miss - DestrehanTiger
I will always fondly remember the 2006 game. LSU was down 20-7 and made a huge comeback. Jamarcus had that double spin 40 yard gain to Dwayne Bowe. I want to say it was 4th down, but I'm not sure....

re: Schools with the worst gameday experiences? - DestrehanTiger
[quote]Hearing Rocky Top 750 times in 4 hours is borderline torture[/quote] I thoroughly enjoyed singing Rocky Top during the game in 2011 when LSU was crushing them. I hope to enjoy at again in November this year. I am really looking forward to seeing what their campus looks like in late Novembe...

re: Schools with the worst gameday experiences? - DestrehanTiger
[quote]Where have y'all been that was a huge let down?[/quote] I was pretty disappointed in Florida in 2008. As soon as we set foot on campus, the place seemed deserted. We found a few pockets of tailgaters. We were told that Florida has strict drinking laws on campus and this caused it. Nothing ...

re: The Arsenal 2017/18: AOL online - DestrehanTiger
I didn't think I would get sucked into the Europa league, but I found myself figuring out the qualifying scenarios after the game without even thinking about it. It's nice getting a lot of minutes for young guys and still winning every game. In case anyone was wondering, a win over Red Star at home ...

re: Honestly Why Do We Even Human Officials? - DestrehanTiger
I never said he wouldn't squat at all. He just may be more at 90 degrees when a good baserunner is on first. I'm not even saying catchers will necessarily change anything, but it's an example of a small thing that may be different. These small things add up to a different game. ...

re: Honestly Why Do We Even Human Officials? - DestrehanTiger
Max Scherzer had a pretty good argument against it on Pardon My Take. It will remove the need for the catcher to squat low to give the ump a good view. When a runner is on base, they won't have to worry about framing a pitch and will be more ready to throw out a runner. Stolen bases may go way down...

re: Its time to move the student section back on the sidelines. - DestrehanTiger
[quote]It is pretty damn ridiculous that students don't have better seats. It's a college, students should have incredible seats.[/quote] Only school I can think of that does this is Texas A&M, and that is because that is a tradition they value only behind jizz jars. The rest of big time college ...

re: Starts from the top with Gulati - DestrehanTiger
Yeah, I know that it isn't working in creating better players. If the USSF is already making a boat load of money off the current system as you say, how much more would be made if they took the brunt of the cost for youth soccer? We are asking organizations to make financial investments. The results...

re: Starts from the top with Gulati - DestrehanTiger
[quote]And everywhere else on the planet basically but here. [/quote] Just to play devil's advocate here, wouldn't that be a product of actual interest in the sport at the top level? In England, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, etc. soccer is the top professional sport. As much as I would like it ...

re: November USMNT Friendlies - DestrehanTiger
[quote]we should host an 8 team tourney in June with teams that just missed out on qualifying- Chile, slovakia, wales, etc [/quote] This keeps getting thrown around, and I actually like the idea, but I would assume there has to be some sort of FIFA rule that would not allow this. Of course, the W...

re: Rick & Morty McDonald's Szechuan Sauce Chaos (and stabbing) - DestrehanTiger
A couple of nights ago, I watched the first 2 episodes to see what all the fuss was about. It was funny, and I plan to continue. I believe someone mentioned the Szechuan sauce thing is in season 2. Would it be easy to explain why this sauce is such a big thing that these losers are going nuts over i...

re: Thread topic forgotten because of the loss: Fubo TV and beIn - DestrehanTiger
[quote]I'd settle for any channel I get, but USSF had nothing to do with this.[/quote] Each individual country sells their home games to a bidder, right? Let's say T&T sold it to some second rate channel that most of Mexico doesn't get. Would they be in a similar situation to us with beIn, or wou...

re: Should the draft precede free agency? - DestrehanTiger

Thread topic forgotten because of the loss: Fubo TV and beIn - DestrehanTiger
Let's start with Fubo. I started a trial with them because Playstation Vue no longer has beIn. Anyone that did something similar will know that the Fubo was down the entire first half. I have to imagine this was a lot of people's first experience with Fubo. I am sure they have been around for a whil...
