re: How many fans of the Rant are 60 or over? - mjfog
Hi Bandit 58. Member that '58 season? One of our victories was Hardin-Simmons! Finished the season at the old Tulane stadium against Clemson. What a year to start school - 10 and 0! Amazing I graduated, got a job, stayed gainfully employed, stayed out of jail and eventually owned my own business...

re: How many fans of the Rant are 60 or over? - mjfog
Grew up near Broadway and Claiborne; my Dad owned a drugstore on that corner. I could here the lions roaring from Audubon Park when the wind was coming off the river. I'm going back to the late 40s, early 50s when my neighbor gang of buddies was playing football, baseball on the neutral grounds, d...

re: How many fans of the Rant are 60 or over? - mjfog
In the stands from '58 to '65 (stayed for my Master's degree). Watched football evolve from "3 yards and a cloud of dust" back then and, unfortunately, during the Miles years. Today we see an inspired Louisiana Larose Coonass install a progressive offense topped off by a Ohio Bayou Transition named...

re: If you need a little help to appreciate this season even more, this is for you - mjfog
Joe Dean hired Curley. Brodhead said, "Hire a cheap coach, get a cheap coach." Those four years were Dean's fault and why I enjoyed Skip and his baseball program so much. Football became an afterthought. Don't blame Curley; he just came in way over his head. Had that one Southern Miss win again...

re: Who is fed up with Gary Danielson? - mjfog
Not me. His analysis is right on. I hear no bias in his call and praise for the LSU players and Tiger's game plan. When replays of controversial plays are shown with multiple camera views, I find his interpretations right on. Where is all this hate coming from?...

re: Thoughts on Alleva now? - mjfog
Worst AD was the sneaker guy we had who hired Curley. Cheap salary and a cheap performance. Tigers did beat Bama during his tenure back in '93 but lost that same season to Tulane! Go figure. Seems like that was back in the "good old boys days" when we had an excellent chance at Spurrier but blew...

re: Greedy is really letting down his program - mjfog
Any body know the dollar amount LSU athletics is out for a "full ride" for football? I don't know and I would like to incorporate this number into my response to the "sitting out" situation. See where Will Grier is letting West Virginia down....

re: Was driving back to Alabama from Texas today - mjfog
Their roads are built over a substantial substrate; our roads are built over a delta soup. But I love those roads because they take me from Florida to raw oysters, properly seasoned boiled crabs and yummy po-boys at Parasol's on Third off Magazine....

re: Brennan has kind of attached himself to Burrow’s hip and is learning from him - mjfog
My 20 pounds was due to the main courses (liquid) served at Tony Drago's Tiger Lounge and those from the Cotton Club, both were on Highland Road. Also tipped a few Jax beers at the Pastime out Nicholson. Late 50s early 60s. Those were the days. Still left LSU with two degrees and lots of memorie...

re: Will Wade = Allevas best move? - mjfog
Yes. I think Coach O should hire him as Offensive Coordinator. Wade could brush up on football and do that gig on his off season. Wade has the juice....

Got to do with keeping Louisiana's best players in their home state. We always lose a few, but let's keep the crème. ...

re: Question about Saturdays Game against AU - mjfog
Get there early! I drove over from South Florida for the "Lightening" game and asked locals about where to be stationed so as best to experience the DA-DA-DA-DA opening of the Tiger Rag. They said I was already too late! Check the Saturday schedule on Dandy Don and be early....

re: Here's why I'm ok with us running the football Saturday - mjfog
Let's hope the "big improvement" from the first to second game pays off in the reduced number of penalties. Not for those last Saturday, I doubt our defense would have been gassed in the 4th quarter....

re: Besides play calling and punting did anybody else see any glaring weakness? - mjfog
Penalties. Could have been up 35-14 instead of 21-6. Still would have had to suffer the talents of Dak; truly a great quarterback. State had no running game....
