re: So what needs to happen with Bama for LSU to play on Thursday? - lsumatt
[quote]As far as not playing on Wednesday, the result of Bama and A&M has NOTHING to do with it. [/quote] This statement greatly contradicts: [quote]A&M losing gives LSU a safety net in that they would only need ONE of SC and UGA to lose to stay away from Wednesday. [/quote]...

re: Shareef Oneal decomits from Arizona - lsumatt
If he wanted his son to win a championship he could say, “use the extra scholarship on a shooting guard”. Maybe he wouldn’t do this but I could see a rich superstar who was confident they would get their playing time wanting to build an all star team. Common sense tells me the NCAA wouldn’t allow...

re: If we finish 4-2 can we make the NCAA tourney? - lsumatt
[quote]Aren't we an NIT lock already without losing out the remainder of our schedule, which is highly unlikely? We're inconsistent, but I don't see any scenario where we're not playing in the NIT at least.[/quote] No scenario? If we lose the rest of our games or even win one we would have a losi...

re: Meanwhile the stock market is going up monkey nuts - lsumatt

[quote]wow - that's overkill - I would volunteer every time & people will likely be fighting for it when it happens... [/quote] I mean that isn't going to be their initial offer. You, I, and everyone else will volunteer long before it gets to $10,000. There shouldn't be a limit at all. ...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - lsumatt
I just met my minimum spending on the AmEx business card - 2 days after my billing statement closed. Do I have to wait a month to get the sign up bonus? Longer? Is there anything I can do to get the points sooner (like pay in advance)? I really need the points so I can book a hotel room. ...
