re: If Coach O ever wins a nattie, this board will be the worst it’s ever been. - Doc Fenton
There were tons of Miles haters from the very beginning, but I've never seen this board be more harmonious and giddy with fun than it was during the 2007 season. Even after the relative meltdowns from the two overtime losses to Kentucky and Arkansas, it was still a really fun board. Only with the Je...

re: High level finance class is a new level of intense - Doc Fenton
It is what it is, man. I'm already plotting my exit strategy every week of every month. I know I can make the switch to the buy-side if I really wanted, but at a lower position than would be ideal. So I keep waiting for just the right opportunity to make the jump. It will come eventually....

re: #metoo makes landfall over the NFL - Doc Fenton
I'm still shocked at how Christina Pagniacci would walk in on NFL players in a state of undress in the locker room for the Miami Sharks. Highly inappropriate....

[quote]they don’t do experience hiring very often, especially at EM/PL level[/quote] Yeah, I left out a step when I posted. They first hired me as a very expendable SME senior consultant to be paid as a contractor on an hourly basis. It was over a year later before they gave me the FTE offer at t...

re: Great Coaches from the past: Paul Dietzel - Doc Fenton
[quote]He left LSU for another college program; and, in the process, damaged LSU.[/quote] I'm fairly certain that he was asked to leave by LSU, and given a graceful way to exit. Some of the old timers who post here will sometimes mention that it was off-the-field issues that got him in trouble. I...

[quote]Has the Pope been rebuked on any other matters you are aware of?[/quote] Nope. I linked to that very filial correction letter in a [link=(https://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/display.aspx?sp=72706914&s=2&p=72685820#72706914)]post of mine[/link] of from October 7. I support that the Catholi...

re: High level finance class is a new level of intense - Doc Fenton
I took the Level 1 when I was still living in New Orleans, and then I kinda drifted away and went into a more rigorously quantitative route. I actually registered to take Level 2, but then I got a job as a quant model developer at a major bank, and just left all that CFA stuff behind. But then I ...

[quote]Political marxist or antipope, or both?[/quote] He's certain a political Marxist, warmed over in the modern faculty lounge dressing of SJWs against race, class, and gender, with a special Argentinian Peronist focus on anti-colonialist, rain forest tree-hugging. As for the antipope part,...

re: So Don Jr. Exchanged Messages with Wikileaks; Someone Explain to Me The Issue - Doc Fenton
[quote]I’ve been hearing nonstop talk about Russian interference, but next to no airtime as to how.[/quote] That sounds like the result of living in a self-imposed news bubble to me. The Russian interference that occurred in the 2016 election was different in magnitude and in kind from anything t...

re: Prince Charles suggested 'influx of foreign Jews' was to blame for Middle East unrest - Doc Fenton
Also, blaming the Sykes-Picot treaty for things is a tired old trope. It served as a useful shorthand cliche at a time for messy events that could not be easily encapsulated, but nobody should take blaming Sykes-Picot seriously or literally anymore. There are dozens of resources out there to read...

re: Prince Charles suggested 'influx of foreign Jews' was to blame for Middle East unrest - Doc Fenton
Yeah. The 67 & 1947 dates are absurd. I don't think they were expelled until after the Bar Kokhba revolt in 135, and even then it was mostly confined to the city proper of Jerusalem itself until the Muslims came in 638, with their famously religion-tiered governing structure. They were living in the...

re: Prince Charles suggested 'influx of foreign Jews' was to blame for Middle East unrest - Doc Fenton
There's a small sliver of truth to it, but it's a ridiculous theory about the origin of instability in the Middle East. The instability was caused by the post-WWI rise of ethnic nationalism that replaced the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires, carried on as it did everywhere with the post-WWII dec...

re: So Don Jr. Exchanged Messages with Wikileaks; Someone Explain to Me The Issue - Doc Fenton
Yeah, I think I was in the Team6 sort of camp from the near the very start of the campaign in 2015, and didn't really move fully into the Team7 camp's view of things until the summer of 2016. If I may make a brief case why I believe Team6's position is implausible, I would highlight that the Trump t...

re: The Secret Correspondence Between Donald Trump Jr. and Wikileaks - Doc Fenton
It's insane that anyone would not see by now that President Trump is getting impeached over all this. The leading Democrats are trying to talk it down so as not to get ahead of the public, since most people aren't following this stuff closely enough to connect the dots. But this is a national securi...
