re: Hard to believe LSU was only one SEC win at Alabama shy of winning the West last year - stewie
[quote]Oh that’s all?[/quote] The OP made a correct statement. LSU was a win at Bama from winning the West. That doesn't mean they would have beaten UGA in the SEC Champ game and the loss to Troy most certainly excluded LSU from any play off picture. Nonetheless, they were still a W at Bam...

re: More outrage - Jeep commercial driving through water KILLED INNOCENT FISH! - stewie

[quote] they don't do well with several-thousand-pound vehicles driving over their spawning grounds, tearing up the gravel where they lay eggs[/quote] He's right on that point. It does send the wrong message. As a farmer, it irritates me when I hear a country song about parties in the corn...

re: With all of these solid coaching hires, how do you end up with Eaux? - stewie
[quote]DaleDenton[/quote] What the hell are you talking about? There was no “search” for quality coaches. The AD had a list of two people. Jimbo Fisher and Tom Herman. The AD, Alleva, wanted Jimbo but wouldn’t pay what he wanted... a la aTm enters the picture. Once Jimbo was out,...

re: How's the South La sugar cane industry these days? - stewie
[quote]the government essentially buys sugar cane from farmers at a loss right?[/quote] Farmers and Millers use it as collateral. Example, I cut my crop in late 2017. The mill makes raw sugar that still needs to be refined. However, the refinery won’t refine all of it until late 2018. You...

re: How's the South La sugar cane industry these days? - stewie
Brummy, it’s all good. Doesn’t matter if it’s the can industry, the steel industry, or bio medical industry, I’d rather not lose a viable American industry because a foreign country decided to prey on it and our country sat idly by. Additionally, the savings wouldn’t be passed on to the consu...
