In order of worse hire 1. O 2. DiNardo (we did save 500k a year with that hire, pre Joe Dean) 3. Archer just think we did a real coaching search and went with Archer as he was not the LSU coach in name only (handling many things Bob did not want to do.) Hallman was not questioned much at...

re: From 1921 to 1965 there was NO legal immigration to the USA. NONE. - tigger1
The Immigration Act of 1924 created a quota system that restricted entry to 2 percent of the total number of people of each nationality in America as of the 1890 national census–a system that favored immigrants from Western Europe–and prohibited immigrants from Asia. That is the law we used for i...
