re: Texas fans REALLY think the 2005 team was best ever - H-Town Tiger
[quote]But neither Nebraska nor Miami accomplished what LSU did in terms of quality wins. Frankly, I don't think anyone has, to date.[/quote] 1995 Nebraska is the closest with 4 wins over teams that finished in the top 10, LSU beat 5 final top 10 teams (the 7 counts 8-5 Texas and Auburn who finis...

[quote]Can someone explain to me why this team is considered one of the best ever[/quote] Do you really need someone to explain to you why [i]TEXAS[/i] fans think 2005 [i]TEXAS[/i] is the best team ever? :casty: [quote]Texas w 2[/quote] Ohio State, Texas Tech and USC = 3. [link=(https...

re: CFN Spring Bowl Projections - LSU in the Citrus Bowl vs Wisconsin. - H-Town Tiger
[quote]overrated Georgia[/quote] i mean they were 3-5-5 the last 3 years :dunno: The thing about having them and Bama in the playoff next year is that they play in the regular season, so you'd have to predict they split and both games are competitive. ETA i didn't click the link but i'd ...

re: Bust a sports myth - H-Town Tiger
[quote]“Defense wins championships” I don’t think it’s true in football or basketball. (Baseball maybe with great pitching, and hockey a hot goaltender). Those are outliers, but give me a great offense over a great defense every time.[/quote] Have you read Scorecasting? Kind of a Freakanomics fo...

re: More racial bias.. - H-Town Tiger
[quote]but it's that what you'd want in a backup qb? If someone is going to be a clip board holder, shouldn't it be someone familiar with the playbook and HC/OC's tendancies?[/quote] which is (i assume) his point, ...

re: More racial bias.. - H-Town Tiger
Aren't the reigning NFL MVP, Rookie of the Year and Super Bowl MVP (who was the 2018 MVP) all black QBs? There are legitimate gripes about coaching opportunities but not QB. That issue ending 25-30 years ago. ...

re: Bust a sports myth - H-Town Tiger
1994 Penn State did not drop in the polls because they let off the gas against Indiana. Penn State, Nebraska and Colorado were all getting first place votes Nebraska had 24, PSU 19 and Colorado 16, but the rankings were PSU, Colo, Neb the week of 10/25/94 Nebraska and Colorado played 10/29 and Neb...

re: Just Finished Binge-Watching "Picard". Spoilers Included - H-Town Tiger
I was disappointed as well. The whole thing was basically a rip off of various sources, including of old Star Trek themes, namely Star Trek VI : The Undiscovered Country. Also the whole android or artificial life as sentient beings with a a right to live instead of machines has been beaten to deat...

[quote]That's why I said, "Yes and no." [/quote] That wasn’t a reply to you but to this Pandy poster that has some irrational hatred of OUATIH :lol: I agree with you PF defies traditional categories. Travolta got the best actor nomination because he has the most screen time but Vince isn’t re...

re: Will ESPN fold because of no sports/viewers? - H-Town Tiger
[quote]I’m an LSU fan with season tickets, not a college football fan. I miss the 90’s atmosphere of college football games 1000x more than I’d miss watching Alabama beat the shite out of Grambling Southern Valley College on ESPN 8:[/quote] you whole premise is nothing but an over romanticizing th...

re: Is there a bigger embarrassment to CFB than Tom Herman? - H-Town Tiger
[quote]He is so scared of playing big man Ed Orgeron again and getting his pee pee smacked[/quote] I get that people are happy in retrospect that LSU didn't hire him, but this is revisionist history. Texas was by far the scariest game last year. We won by 7 and that's with a dropped TD by UT in...

re: Dispelling a myth: Saban/Brees/Dolphins - H-Town Tiger
[quote]If Brees goes to Miami, Saints don’t win a Super Bowl, LSU wins more NC and the Patriots don’t cake walk to every division title. That was a huge domino.[/quote] Why do we just assume Saban would have run a similar offense to Sean Payton? Especially the first year. He wasn't fired by the...

re: DJ Chark disrespects Joe Burrow - H-Town Tiger
[quote]I get people not wanting to be prisoners of the moment. Burrow’s mythical season will only grow as time goes on. [/quote] Clark’s list are all guys older than him, that I assume he watched growing up. As a current NFL player he probably doesn’t get to watch a lot of college games. ...

re: Just finished re-watching Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.... - H-Town Tiger
[quote]Yes and here's why. I remember when that movie came out. People were much more interested in seeing a Travolta come back than seeing the actual movie.[/quote] yeah, sorry that's not how we define who is the "lead" :lol:...

re: Soooooo can we all agree MJ wasn't rusty in the 95 playoffs vs magic - H-Town Tiger
[quote]The key to that series was Horace Grant on the Magic and no Horace Grant on the Bulls. Bulls fixed that problem next year by getting Rodman.[/quote] This. The other important thing i think that gets overlooked is the impact losing that series had on the Bulls. They knew they had to get a...

re: The 2020 College Football season will be played. It's March 30th - H-Town Tiger
I think that illustrates another important point, which is how much more advanced medical technology is now than in 1957. A nasty strain like that today, probably would not have be as deadly was it was in 1957. I get people are frustrated (im super depressed about the NCAA tournament, i don't eve...
