re: Analytical Review : Possible replacements for the Lil General - The Spleen
Avery is a decent coach, but this late season swoons the past 2 seasons just shouldn't happen. And the way they happened this year is just inexcusable. I think ultimately he's too nice of a guy and that comes across in his teams. They just don't have a killer instinct, and there's little accountabil...

re: Thai and/or Vietnamese Recipes - The Spleen

re: Analytical Review : Possible replacements for the Lil General - The Spleen
[quote]Dawkins is a no for me.[/quote] I would give up on Bama basketball if we go that direction. I don't keep up with college basketball as closely as I used to, so I really have little other input. Please no Johnny Dawkins. ...

re: Do you like the music your kids listen to? - The Spleen
My son isn't really into music. He likes some of what I listen to, but I couldn't even tell you who his favorite artists are. He has started asking me more about bands I listen to, and asking to listen to records so maybe the light is coming on for him. My daughter listens to pop crap mostly. I ...

re: SEC Baseball Tournament RV Spots or Parks - The Spleen
Tannehill State Park isn't too far away(10 miles or so) and has a bunch of RV spots. Not close enough to tailgate. Don't think there's anywhere close to the stadium other than their lots. It's kind of in a residential area. ...

re: Official Alabama Basketball Season Thread (FIRE AVERY) - The Spleen
It's just so baffling. A month ago we were playing like a top 15 team. Have the players quit on Avery? Has he quit on the team? ...

[quote]And what Sorority are you in?[/quote] Fair. Like I said, it was the most comfortable when I was looking for a new one. I wouldn't pay $150 for it though. ...

[quote]i like steak fries[/quote] Steak fries are the best style fry when cooked right. Most places that serve them don't cook them right though and they end up soggy. ...

re: Fast Food French Fry Power Rankings - The Spleen
[quote]Double frying is generally how crispy fries are achieved. Not boiling but I suppose boiling them accomplishes the same thing as double frying[/quote] Either process works, but a more important step if using fresh cut potatoes is to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes after cutting...

re: Official Alabama Basketball Season Thread (FIRE AVERY) - The Spleen
I said Sunday I was done with this team this year. Those 2 performances last week were as awful as I can remember from a Bama team in consecutive games. But as I say that, I know I'll end up tuning in tonight. ...

re: Purchases you regret - The Spleen
Biggest is our current house. Mostly because it was a foreclosure that needed work, we bought it just before the financial crisis in 2004, and my wife was in banking at the time and saw a pretty substantial cut in pay. So most of the work we had planned to do to it got deferred. What started out as ...

re: Fast Food French Fry Power Rankings - The Spleen
I don't really eat fries much anymore, but Wendy's and McDonald's always had the best to me. Chick-Fil-A's are decent if they're fresh and hot. ...

re: Papa John's Philly cheese steak pizza - The Spleen
[quote]as far as the big chains go I used to think papa's was the best in the beginning but I'm guessing quality had to go way down for them to stay price competitive with the big guys...or maybe I was just a kid then and thought all pizza was good.[/quote] My kids like Papa John's so we get ...

re: Backpack/Work Bag: Nice enough for Corporate America, but laid back at the same time? - The Spleen
I'm mid 40's and use a North Face one. I don't care that it may not look professional. It's the only one I looked at that was comfortable when I put it on my back/shoulders. It is entirely black, so it's not like what some frat bro would use to go to class with. This one, though I don't rememb...

re: Should I turn over my accident to an attorney? - The Spleen
[quote]She probably needs a recorded statement from you, saying that you were sore at the time of the accident, but you you're fine now. That you no longer are in need of any medical attention. From my understanding they typically don't cut the check until you're done with the doctors. [/quote]...

re: Should I turn over my accident to an attorney? - The Spleen
At this point a lawyer is just going to prolong the process even further. I'd wait until I can talk to the medical adjuster before going that route. And with just two doctor's visits and a couple days missed work, the quality of lawyer you'll get to take the case may not be the best. Can't you call ...

re: Official Alabama Basketball Season Thread (FIRE AVERY) - The Spleen
What do we think of Pelphrey as a HC candidate? I know he sucked at Arkansas, but he's been in the program a few years now, knows the league and recruiting trail, and sometimes a good coach just needs the right opportunity. This isn't advocating for him should the job come open. I honestly don't ...
