re: Bama game hinged on 4 plays - Thorny
[quote]"Imposing their will" is Les Miles' type of thinking from 50 years ago.[/quote] The most important part of Nick Saban's infamous "Process" is to "dominate the guy in front of you on every play" and "make their arse quit". Seems to be working pretty well for them, overall. Most of their ...

re: LSU TENN kick time? - Thorny
While it doesn't look good for happening, if Kentucky wins out, the KY @ UGA game will be for the East if UGA loses to Auburn. I'm betting that CBS picks that one up. The noon spot is a real possibility. GEAUX TIGERS...

re: I’m going to eat some crow - Thorny
I spent all week telling my Auburn friends "UAB and Troy have won a game in Tiger Stadium since Auburn has." I was doing it as a joke, because I just knew this was their chance to end that streak. Well, I get to say it for another two years. :cheers: GEAUX TIGERS...

[quote]You could argue that maybe Saban builds a machine that sets future coaches up for success. [/quote] Yet, he didn't do so. Will Muschamp has failed once already. Bobby Williams failed miserably at Mich State. Derek Dooley was a complete failure at Tennessee. The jury is still out on McI...

re: Camping - Boy Scouts - Thorny
I was a Cubmaster and a Scoutmaster for my four boys. I never needed or wanted anything bigger than a 7x7 3 man. However, it does matter how old your son is. If he is in Cubs, he will be tenting with you. My wife never went camping with us, so I didn't need to fit more than me and two kids into i...

re: ESPN Classic now LSU vs Ohio State 1988 Loss 36 to 33 - Thorny
What really hurt was that the team let that game get into their heads. The next week, they played at Florida and were never mentally in the game. The Tigahs lost 19-6 in a game that wasn't that close to an inferior Florida team. Thankfully, they were able to get the ship righted for the must-win...

re: Midnight on a Navy Destroyer: People involved in preventing collisions - Thorny
From my experience in dealing with safety incidents in the Air Force, there was likely a long chain of events that led to these accidents. I know the AF doesn't do things exactly the same way, but this principle tends to hold in my observations of all major system-level accidents. Somewhere, some...
