re: WWII Question - Truk Lagoon - Htowntiger90
Maybe because the freighters and tankers were slower than the warships and couldn't keep up, which would put them all at slower speed if they sailed together. Greater risk if it would slow down the warships fleeing west....

re: Will Blood Meridian ever be made into a movie? (Update Alert) - Htowntiger90
Listened to Blood Meridian on Audible recently. At different times the Judge reminded me of: - An intellectual sermonizing King Kong Bundy - A bald and thoughtful Dusty Rhodes - Vincent D'Onofrio playing Wilson Fisk - Best candidate for a movie? Oh the mental adventures that come up when...

re: Jacobian Guillory didn't enter his name into the NFL Draft - Htowntiger90
Good news. He got pushed aside on a long Wisconsin TD in the bowl. He can squat 700-800 lbs, so he has the size & strength. Some focused coaching by Davis will have to help with technique and lift his play....

re: Connor O’Gara from Saturday Down South’s new article - Htowntiger90
[quote]As good as that run was, the 51 yarder in that same game was better, IMO. That was classic JD, where he seems to move through groups of would be tacklers and they can't put a finger on him. I swear it seems like he has a force field around him at times...[/quote] That was the Heisman moment ...

re: LSU football is 11-1 with a chance at 12-0 if Keon Coleman came to LSU over FSU. - Htowntiger90
Don't you think #55 Braden Fiske would have made a bigger difference, if you're talking one transfer? Or the CB they got from UVA? WR was the biggest strength of this team besides of course QB....

re: I am sick and tired of the empty seats in the student section / west side - Htowntiger90
Was there to the zeroes, and it’s sad to see fans leaving in 3Q of a game we could have blown. Still sounded pretty loud in 4Q. Hey, if people want to miss out on JD setting an all time record then whatever. I’m not sure how to keep fans in the seats without getting creative. I don’t think going...

re: East of Eden by John Steinbeck - Htowntiger90
If you're looking for a shorter Steinbeck book, The Winter of our Discontent is a classic with also a good dose of heavy in it. The final section still sticks with me. From what I've read, it cemented his career reputation later in life, just before his Nobel Prize....

[quote]It would be hard to get blood meridian to an R rating without damaging the story imo.[/quote] Damn - I didn't know it was that rough, even for a McCarthy book.

Nice! Will be great to have someone with elite speed returning kicks and running sweeps. Not sure if anyone else had an 80s flashback - Slip Watkins on the late 80s teams was a good speed guy, and an AA in track. Also wore #2... :geauxtigers:...
