re: "José...Don't shoot!" - Thorny
[quote]A group of five teenagers there began taunting him, and one of them took a liking to the chain Vargas wore around his neck. A poke in the chest, a yank on the necklace—on which hung a ring given Vargas by his mother—and Vargas reacted instinctively, tackling the young man and crashing with hi...

re: Who is the most forgotten QB in your school’s history... - Thorny
Jeff Wickersham Started for 3 years. Overshadowed by Dalton Hilliard in the same backfield, but I think he might have left LSU as the career leading passer. Led the Tigers to two bowl games, including a Sugar Bowl. Almost immediately forgotten as everyone loved his immediate replacement, Tomm...

re: Dr Squatch Soap - Thorny
I tried it. I found it became extra soft sooner than I wanted. I buy Stirling Soap Company. Their soaps are tallow-based, which I think makes them hold their shape longer. They also have a wider variety of scents. I use 4 different scents for my shave soaps--every day gets a different scent so th...

re: NYT opinion piece wants you to ‘imagine America is an emotional teenage girl’ - Thorny
"NYT opinion piece wants you to ‘imagine America is an emotional teenage girl’" Haven't we had to actually live that for the last 30 years? Not working out too well, is it?...

re: Cpap board. Doing a cpap test. - Thorny
It takes a little getting used to, but it was life changing for me. Last fall, we were without power for 36 hours due to Hurricane Zeta. Power went out around midnight, right as I was trying to get to sleep. No CPAP--No Sleep. I was so tired the next day that we checked into a local hotel when t...

re: Mary Ann or Ginger? - Thorny
[quote]No long game vision. Marry Lovie who will get 1/2 of Thurston's money, then you take half of that from Lovie. Profit. If you have more nefarious inclinations off Thurston marry Lovie, off Lovie get all the money. Then marry Mary Ann and keep Ginger on the side, since we know she was rea...

re: Which Alabama OL triggers LSU fans more? - Thorny
The one that should have been ejected from the 2019 game and who should have been regularly called for false start for faking a snap in coordination with Mac Jones clapping his hands (something the announcers noticed in their game against Arkansas). That would be Dickerson. That neither happened ...

re: So why do LSU fans pull for the gumps? - Thorny
I am a friend with a Bama friend who is a member of the REC. He's regularly trying to tell me how noble it is for Devonte Smith's barber to continue to cut his hair in Tuscaloosa. He hates Ed Orgeron for having the audacity to encourage his own team after the 2019 win. What attitude does that ...

re: Have you ever seen uglier basketball? - Thorny
I actually attended a game where LSU beat Southern 64-50 during the Trent Johnson era. Ouch. (Oh, and there were about 75 fans in the PMAC, long before Covid.) So, yeah, I've seen uglier basketball. GEAUX TIGERS....

re: Saban should eclipse Bryant in 2026 - Thorny
[quote]The only question remaining to me is will Saban stay long enough and keep up this pace long enough to surpass Bryant's 232 wins at Alabama. He's at 170 right now.[/quote] Much as I hate to think about it, Saban isn't going anywhere any time soon. I can't imagine him leaving just so he can ...

re: Covid Lung Xray - Thorny
I had Covid back in June. Had a chest x-ray in August, while I was still very much feeling the detrimental effects of the disease (I still feel some, but it's much better). The x-ray came back negative for any readable lung damage. I will be visiting a pulmonologist for a follow up in February. ...

re: Questions for those who had the Rona (Update: Tested positive) - Thorny
W M 53 A+ I had significant lung symptoms that led me to get a test. Only had a fever for a short time--less than 6 hours. Breathing problems lasted for a whole week, and still feel after-effects now over 6 months later. I never lost the senses of taste or smell....

re: Tom Herman OC.... or naaaa? - Thorny
No. I would worry if he was intentionally trying to undermine Ed so he would have a second chance at getting the job. After the way he and his agent used LSU to force Texas' hand, frick him. GEAUX TIGERS!...

re: GREATEST LB of all time for LSU - Thorny
[quote]Devin or B James[/quote] Brady James is one of my favorite Tigers ever. For him to go through the personal tragedies of losing both parents during the 2000 season and stay with the team, winning the defensive MVP for the Peach Bowl shows a character that few have. That's the heart of a Tig...

re: Cincy DC Marcus Freeman is at the top of LSU’s wish list; Mason is interested - Thorny

re: My wish: Freeman as DC & Calloway to OC - Thorny
[quote]Why do yall want calloway as oc? Just keep him on staff as qb coach Just to let you know, it would be a mistake to make him the oc. Its too soon [/quote] One thing to consider is that Calloway does already have experience in play calling. He was OC at Samford before he was hired. ...

re: Greatest LSU FBall Freshman at every position? - Thorny
Since we are not including redshirt freshmen, the QB would be Herb Tyler. Like Johnson, didn't start until late in the season, but had big wins over Arkansas and Michigan State in Indy Bowl....

re: Bill Clark interviewing for Auburn - Thorny
I think he would be a good choice. He has all the connections within the state Auburn could ask for and has certainly proven to be ready to move to a higher job. However, some Auburn fans in my circle have expressed concern that he will not be able to recruit outside Alabama enough to go up again...
