re: will our OL play improve this year? - Htowntiger90
Hopefully! But my concern is it didn't seem to improve much over the course of last season. I also wonder if any younger guys redshirted last year will push into starting spots. Dare Rosenthal maybe?...

re: How upset will you be if LSU loses to Texas? - Htowntiger90
Fairly, since I live in Houston. But we'll take 'em down, especially if we win the turnovers. We'll be better on the line of scrimmage....

re: Embarrassing music confession here - Htowntiger90
Yep Kevin Moore is his real name. I'm sure he has lots of good material. But as far as blues playing, I was underwhelmed when I saw him at Jazz Fest several years ago. Definitely not in league with Buddy Guy or SRV (I know, who is?)...I also thought Tab Benoit was better live....

re: Summerfest 2019 - Htowntiger90
This is a good festival. Took my son there to see Rush in 2010. Very nice amphitheater. After Rush we walked past where Modest Mouse was playing. We caught a song & left. In hindsight I felt I should've stayed longer but didn't want another show to erase the Rush buzz....

re: ACL Linuep - Htowntiger90
Argh Jack White & Gary Clark Jr. on different days. Guns making the festival rounds with ACL & Voodoo. Saw 'em in the '90s and in the Dome a few years ago. If I go the first day it's more for Raconteurs & Tame Impala....

re: To Audible or Not to Audible - Htowntiger90
I'll be one of the last people in America reading paper books but Audible's good for the commute. I have an hour drive to work and not as much time to read as I used to except when sitting on a plane. I still prefer book books but Audible helps me make progress on the reading list....

re: Next Year's Pitching - Htowntiger90
Definitely lots of arms & lots of unknowns with whether the injuries from this year linger into next year. Wishful thinking that Hess just might come back to improve his draft stock?...

re: Devin Fontenot Pitched Out Of His Mind, And Deserves A Standing Ovation Next Season! - Htowntiger90
:bow: :bow: Hope we can find another Fontenot or two for next season. Combine that hold-the-line mentality with his talent and you've got a bedrock of the pitching staff....

re: Can we expect Burrow to run more frequently this season? - Htowntiger90
This keeps getting brought up - hopefully he won't be running any more. He's not super elusive, no elite speed and he doesn't mind contact. Those things can all lead to him getting hurt. That said, 5-6 runs a game to keep the defense off balance is a good thing. Our RB talent level will be upgra...

re: Does writing give a high? - Htowntiger90
Yes it does give a high. It's the tenth round of revising where the buzz wears off some lol. Keep writing that first draft til it's done IMO. You'll go back and flesh more things out every time you look at it....

[quote]The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. Seriously.[/quote] Crazy that I picked up a used copy of this years ago and never read it. Lost track of it & can't tell you where it is now. :confused:...

I've read Founding Father & American Sphinx years back. Both good, I recall liking 'American Sphinx better. An even better book by Ellis is Founding Brothers. Great book on early American history told through the relationships between founding fathers. Won a Pulitzer in 2001. There's a chapte...

re: LSU 4 @ Florida St 5 Final - ESPN2 - Htowntiger90
Oh well I had to raise a Glenlivet 12 YO first-fill cask (yea cask was heavy) to a frustrating & underachieving & sometimes entertaining season of baseball. Another year of 'maybe next year we'll get a hitting coach and have better baserunning'. Is 'arm soreness' a way of life in college basebal...
