re: Auburn radio melt thread - Baloo on 9/19/18 at 10:19 am
The Giles PI was so egregious, you can see the flag on the field as the ball goes by. They had already flagged the play, well before the ball got there. The Jefferson PI, even Gary Danielson called it out as open and obvious, and he's about as close as we'll get to a neutral observer. The DB grab...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]That depends in part on what you mean by biggest. I do agree that was probably the ratings peak, as someone mentioned demographics plus cable wasn’t available in some places including NYC until the late 80s and of course cable has declined since.

re: MTV in the early 2000s - Baloo on 9/18/18 at 4:43 pm
Here's the ratings for the MTV Video Awards through the years. While this is just one show, it would give us an idea of how popular the network is, and more people would be willing to tune into their awards if they were watching the network in the first place. By that standard, the ratings peak w...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Captain Marvel Trailer - Baloo on 9/18/18 at 12:18 pm
Captain Marvel has had a cat since the mid '00s. Chewie, named after the Star Wars character, has been a bit of a cult favorite. Recently, it was revealed that Chewis is not a cat, but is actually an interdimensional alien known as a Flerken. But that was more of a joke they are now stuck with in ca...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]It was a bad loss, but it - combined with the warranted fan backlash that came with it - seems to have really lit a fire under O and the team’s arse since. [/quote] This is where I am. It's not the terrible loss, it's how you respond. And Coach O responded great and the program did a 180 af...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Would you rather lose to Alabama and run the table or... - Baloo on 9/18/18 at 11:11 am
Losing to Bama and winning every other game is a likely ticket to the playoffs so long as Bama beats Georgia in the SECCG. Clearly, I'd choose this option. Especially if UGA won all of their other games. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: American Vandal season 2 (no spoilers) - Baloo on 9/18/18 at 9:32 am
It's not quite as good as Season 1, but it's still pretty great. What was great about S1 was the detail they would go into other high school drama like who made out with who at what party. Here, with the kids doing a doc at a different high school, there isn't quite the same stakes. But that's a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Did we get lucky Saturday on last drive? - Baloo on 9/17/18 at 12:45 pm
Yes and no. Look, I think the calls were legit. Giles wasn't able to run his route at all and Jefferson couldn't lift his arm to make a catch. They committed PI. But ask yourself, legit or not legit, if before the game someone had told you that the refs would flag Auburn twice for PI in Jordan...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Who graded out higher, Rashard or Danielson' favorite player - Baloo on 9/17/18 at 11:25 am
I don't know who Danielson's favorite player is, but Deshaun Davis has 13 tackles, 4 TFL, 1 sack, and 2 QB hurries for Auburn. He was a friggin' beast and probably had the best single game of any player this weekend. Lawrence was awesome, but Davis was on another planet... and still lost. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Clock Management - we were not a talk show punching bag - Baloo on 9/17/18 at 11:23 am
I like that as soon as Giles converted the first 1st down, the staff made a decision right then that this was the final drive of the game, and managed the clock accordingly. They were thinking clock management right then and there, and had already committed to going for it on fourth down in the next...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Which game left (besides Bama and UGA) is most concerning to you? - Baloo on 9/17/18 at 11:19 am
State. If history is any indication, LSU can lose to either Bama OR Georgia and still make the playoffs. Honestly, it might be BETTER to lose to Bama, and skip the rematch with the Dawgs., taking the standard Bama Back Door into the playoffs. But you CANNOT lose to State. Lose to State, and we...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Do Fehoko and Lawrence both leave for NFL? - Baloo on 9/16/18 at 1:54 pm
The one thing that really helps is that this defensive line class is LOADED. It's going to be hard to break the first round given the number of top tier guys coming out. I think there were nearly 10 linemen projected to go in the 1st round. You might be better off waiting a year and going higher in ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: NHL Offseason Thread - Baloo on 9/14/18 at 12:09 pm
I love Joel Ward. He's probably my favorite ex-Cap in the league right now other than Beagle. He is what he is, but he'll be cheap and play hard. Salute to Zetterberg. Guy was really f'n good. ...

This is why I'm sort of anal about owning my own copies of things. Amazon music is about to do something similar and stop supporting any files not downloaded directly from Amazon. I don't mind having something on the cloud for ease of use, but you have to understand: if you do not control the so...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: LSU vs Auburn - Unit breakdowns - Baloo on 9/12/18 at 4:04 pm
I think the matchup of the game is our secondary versus their receivers. It's strength on strength. LSU has as many sacks as Auburn, and both teams have questionable olines, so both QB's are gonna get hit a lot. But Auburn has an elite receiving corps and LSU has a terrific secondary. How they match...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
