re: Your top LSU Football Coaches during your lifetime - SM6
Saban, then Miles. Saban put us back on the map and primed the program for success. Miles took the foundation and built a hell of a program on it, sustained success is not a given. Just ask VT, FSU, or Tennessee....

re: Has anyone here flown on an ATR42 turbo-prop plane? - SM6
[quote]doesn't help when you are in a holding pattern, in icing conditions, with flaps extended either, not what boots are designed for[/quote] That is why an American Airlines' affiliate (Simmons Air?) moved them all from ORD and other continental U.S. operations to American's old San Juan, PR h...

[quote]as that the kind that crashed outside of buffalo or was it a DH8C[/quote] The Colgan Air flight was actually a DH8D (in ICAO parlance). That would be the Dash-8-Q400, similar to what used to operate into BTR. Cause of that crash was pilot error. Like really bad, flight school case study...

re: Has anyone here flown on an ATR42 turbo-prop plane? - SM6
If it is the newer generation -600 model like Silver just bought (flies them from Florida to the Keys and Bahamas) then it is a nice plane. A little cramped, similar to a 50-seat regional jet that most major airlines operate. The -600 models employ a noise suppression system to counteract the vib...

re: Starting Rotation - SM6
Need to see that his command is back before passing judgement. Word out of fall camp was that his stuff was back to 2017 quality but he was having command issues. This is common after having TJ. Command is the last thing to return. Hopefully he is squared away by SEC play....

re: Does this baseball team compete with the 2013 team - SM6
If the arms stay healthy (not counting on Labas or Storz at this point), it will be a very, very dangerous team. The lineup is going to be formidable top to bottom. If we have a reliable third starter then our pen is full of power arms at the end of the game....

re: CPM update on M. Hillard - SM6
I expect we will see a lot of guys on Sunday prior to SEC play. Walker needs innings, command is the last thing to come back after TJ, and that was his calling card in 2017. I'm sure he will get first crack at Sunday, but I hope they find a way to get him 80 pitches a game, whether it be Sunday o...

re: Posters who have suffered the banhammer - SM6
My first account on TD is still banned. I think I said some uncouth things about another poster while drunk (he had it coming if I recall). That was 2007? After graduation I wised up and have been a (generally) good poster. Especially on matters of travel and the airline industry. ETA- admins wou...

re: Do airlines save the last row on the plane and not let anyone book those seats? - SM6
[quote]From a revenue standpoint, it’s better for an airline to have one empty seat remaining. It means they priced the seats just right or to maximize revenue as opposed to having a sold it flight indicating they may have priced all seats not high enough.

re: Lincoln Park neighborhood in Chicago - SM6
Lake View property values has gone up significantly in recent years. I lived in Southport from 14-17, the value of the condo we were renting went from like 450 to 650 in that time. Being in the Blaine Elementary school district was a huge factor. Lincoln Park is safe for a big city. There was an ...

[quote]If it ain’t Boeing I ain’t going[/quote] Said the passengers on Lion Air. Boeing makes some nice planes, so does Airbus. The automation of new aircraft is amazing, they are turning pilots into systems operators. Yet mainline US pilots want to be paid like they are more than some gl...
