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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

False Arnsparger and Paul were not elite Saban was just super good luck spotting a diamond in the grass. Les was a great hire. Bo is the one that could have been elite, at best a very good hire. The rest are below those. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: From 1921 to 1965 there was NO legal immigration to the USA. NONE. - tigger1 on 1/13/18 at 4:34 am
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...

Battalion of the Damned: The 1st Marine Paratroopers at Gavutu and Bloody Ridge, 1942 The unsung heroes of the battle for Guadalcanal. Very good book.

Shattered Sword: The authors of the book Shattered Sword did not go into detailed research on the Japanese Naval Air arm, so many opinions in the book are based on guess work at best and misunderstanding of the naval arm and scope of the war.

re: Which WW1 book should I read first? - tigger1 on 1/5/18 at 6:27 pm
The problem with The Guns of August is that it starts in August 1914. So you need to read: July 1914: Countdown to War by Sean McMeekin This covers the lead up to the war. When Princip guns down the Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, it is not a headline in Europe. This book shows the...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
