re: 1997 LSU/UF on ESPNU - jrbjr
I think the rule changes to encourage offense have made it nearly impossible to play defense. LSU, UF, and Bama have terrible defensive stats this year. We took advantage of it last year, but I personally wish the rules would return to this era....

re: O speaks on coaches radio - jrbjr
I don’t think people (most of us) are dumping on Carter, but we asked him to do something that’s really outside of his skill set on that play. We have other guys that can do that, but can’t blast a LB on a read option like Carte can. Just put guys in a position to make positive plays, and not beyond...

re: Besides being kicked in the nuts... - jrbjr
I never had a catheter, and I think that May top mine, but my worse was a prostate infection. Not the infection, but the DR “milking” my prostate to get a specimen of the fluid. My eyes flashed “white”....

re: American journalists need to follow this Russian journalist's example - jrbjr
I don’t know where to start. You’re wishing that US media kill them selves like this Russian journalist who has been subject of Russian intelligence intimidation? You’re expressing joy at the prospect of people killing them selves. Am I correct? If so, you need psychological attention. I don’t thin...

re: What do you say to someone who is dying? - jrbjr
Very sad. I went through a similar circumstance a couple months ago. He was older, mid60s with 3 adult children, so not exactly. But still sad. He has battled a number of health issues for 20 years. Doctors finally “gave him 1 year”. A week later I was able to visit him in the hospital, and his app...

re: Season tickets? - jrbjr
I agree with Alt26. Everything is status quo for now, but in the background they’re making contingency plans. First is asking for volunteers to give up season tickets. Maybe a lottery to distribute tickets among season ticket holders. I’m an older season ticket holder, and I hope we at least get a...

re: Can we get a WWII content megathread going? - jrbjr
I second the WWII Museum. Started out as a D-Day museum and took off. Steven Ambrose (UNO history professor) got the idea after writing Eisenhower’s official biography. After that, he realized that the WWII vets were starting to die. He started an oral history project and recorded any veterans sto...

re: Finished watching Ken Burns' Vietnam series last night - jrbjr
I really liked it. I thought it was even-handed. I thought the greatest revelation (to me, I guess others knew this already) were the recordings of LBJ-Nixon telephone calls. Nixon has secretly called the S. Viet. President, telling him to delay the Paris Peace talks until he was elected. LBJ knew t...

re: Why all the hate for oil field baws? - jrbjr
Anyone working in a volatile industry like oil&gas needs to expect down turns like this. Any stock market speculators or commodity traders are in the same economic boat. Save money in the good times and hope you can ride out the bad times. ...

So there’s a lightning strike at a chemical plant in St Bernard Parish, and this gives an opportunity for a cheap shot against NOLA. I’m not a fan of our mayor, but be reasonable in your criticism....

I was sitting with my son on the East sideline near the top around 20 yard line. Great view of this play. “let it go”....”don’t field it”...”oh, no!”... but by the time he crossed the field to the 10 yard line...”he’s going all the way!”...
