Jacob Phillips looking good! - itsbigmikey
A buddy of mine does athletic training in Nashville and posted some clips of JP on his Instagram. Dude has some quick feet and looks like he's putting in work to get ready for a breakout year! Going to need a leader to emerge in this group of linebackers, and I'm hoping he's ready to be that guy. ...

re: Flexibility - itsbigmikey
[quote]Take it slow. you may just not have the same joint flexibility as other people. Everyone is built different. The last thing you want to do is destroy your hip joint trying to do a split. If you are flexible enough for the activities you enjoy, be happy with that.[/quote] Fair enough. I thi...

re: Flexibility - itsbigmikey
[quote]I have no insight other than to ask..... how long have you been in this flexibility routine / stage? If it's anything shorter than a year, I would say just keep at it.[/quote] I've been doing hot yoga for about a year once or twice a week, but I have been aggressively stretching for about ...

Flexibility - itsbigmikey
Has anyone on here gone from stiff as a board to extremely flexible (I'm talking able to do the splits flexible)? Without going into too much detail I am trying to do this or get somewhere close, and it can be pretty discouraging so I was hoping for an uplifting testimony where this has happened. I ...

re: Zachary Evans running style reminds me of Leonard Fournette. - itsbigmikey
This guy will be highly coveted. The way he runs reminds me of Dalvin Cook with how balanced he is and how quick he can accelerate. Getting him would get LSU back to the stable of backs we've been known for...

re: Kayshon Boutte - 2020 - itsbigmikey
Was referring more to the type of receiver, but that is definitely a difference. He will hopefully be everything we expected Giles to be and more. The guy you trust throwing a tightly covered slant route to on third and 6...

Kayshon Boutte - 2020 - itsbigmikey
Got to be excited for this kid to wear purple and gold. Great hands, good route runner, and is an absolute burner. Looks similar to Justin Jefferson in his skill set, but I think he has a much higher ceiling. Watching him run with the ball in his hands reminds me of OBJ a little bit. Not the tallest...

re: Permanent Life Insurance - Keep it or scrap it? - itsbigmikey
[quote]If you can afford to hang on to it, then do it. At some point the growth each year will exceed what you’re putting into it. You can also stop paying on it down the road and have paid up life insurance for when you start a family.[/quote] I was thinking the same thing, but I have just seen ...

re: Permanent Life Insurance - Keep it or scrap it? - itsbigmikey
Without getting into too much detail, I optimistically could make six figures within 3 or 4 years and have a chance to make more than that a few years after...

re: Permanent Life Insurance - Keep it or scrap it? - itsbigmikey
Not at all. I mean, I guess it's keeping me from throwing a little money at my mortgage and keeping me from putting more into my Roth, but I am content besides that...

Nope. I am perfectly healthy and exercise 4-5 times per week and eat very well the majority of the time. I am a very health conscious person...

re: Permanent Life Insurance - Keep it or scrap it? - itsbigmikey
I wasn't expecting a quick turnaround on my money. I thought of it as something I wouldn't touch until the policy growth exceeds what I have invested into it. In my mind, I figured when I start a family I would want life insurance and it seemed like having one that accumulates cash value would be be...

Permanent Life Insurance - Keep it or scrap it? - itsbigmikey
Hey guys, I was talked into getting a permanent life insurance policy through Northwestern Mutual which I contribute $200/month. I also currently contribute $200/month to a Roth IRA. In hindsight, I wish I would've never gotten the permanent life insurance, but my financial rep sold it well and emph...

re: Domestic vs. Imported Steel - itsbigmikey
Not to mention that the imported rebar that I receive is usually pretty mangled up due to how they have to move it off of the barges (Not Chinese companies' fault). But it saves me from having a lot of mangled scrap to deal with....

The overall price has gone up pretty significantly. It has trended back downward as domestic production has begun to pump more steel into the market...

Domestic vs. Imported Steel - itsbigmikey
I work in the building supplies industry and do our company's lumber and rebar purchasing. Before Trump and the tariffs, imported steel was around 40-50 cents cheaper per 20' stick (sometimes more than that). Since the tariffs, domestic steel is within pennies of our foreign competitors. I finally h...

Maurice Hampton - itsbigmikey
Saw on Rivals that he dropped down 143 spots to number 248. I don't hold too much stock in these rankings, but that seems like a long way to fall. Anyone know why this happened? And do we think he is still a lock to sign in February? There's not a better school in the country to play baseball and fo...

I bet Aranda is excited - itsbigmikey
[link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddhCVue1LyM)]Marcel Brooks[/link] is going to be such a dynamic player. I cannot wait to see how they use this guy. With the amount of disguised blitzes Aranda uses, I feel like this guy will cause some major issues for offenses just like Delpit does. We're a s...

re: LSU vs Bama for DL - itsbigmikey
Sopsher would make this recruiting class so well-rounded. He's a good combination of size and speed that can help with our struggles we've had stopping the running game. I don't want to watch us play against a dominant Louisiana product for 3-4 years like we had to with freakin Landon Collins...
