re: Good article about Maravich and the sons he left behind. - 1970tiger on 11/13/14 at 5:13 pm
I was on the Athletic Council and had a few classes with Pete the second semester of Pete’s senior year. He stopped coming to class after basketball season (Everyone knew he would be the number one pick.) Back then if you missed 3 classes they could kick you out of school. LSU did that to Pete. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: The new BCS playoff is why Saban will leave - 1970tiger on 12/11/13 at 10:23 am
I have been thinking this for a while. I know there is SEC bias on the rant. But why do people think a non SEC Champion will make the playoffs over a Conference Champ. I know it is only a consideration, but I have a problem with people from other conferences or areas of the country doing this on...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Paul Finebaum on Sportscenter: Alabama officials increasingly nervous - 1970tiger on 12/11/13 at 9:49 am
It was said several time Texas has all the money it wants. The Bama people never understood this. I have clients there and do a lot of business in Houston. They donate whole wings to hospitals, schools, etc. There are subdivisions in Houston and I am sure Dallas, Austin, San Antonio that the propert...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Saban $20 mill in hole due to bad real estate investments w LSU and Bama alums - 1970tiger on 12/11/13 at 9:19 am
Last year or the year before an apartment complex in Houston went into Bankruptcy. Spinosa (the same person that developed Perkins Row was the promoter on the complex,) Saban was a partner personally liable on the debt. I think he guaranteed part of the bank note. It was $10 million. (you can check ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Hooking up with flight attendants/fellow passengers - 1970tiger on 8/29/13 at 11:45 am
I used to fly a lot on business back when flight attendants were young and good looking and have had the pleasure of hooking up on 4 occasions (Not bragging). I also have 2 friends that also have. One was on a flight to Miami the night Regan gave his acceptance speech. One on a flight was to NY whe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Punch or cut your cigar? - 1970tiger on 8/29/13 at 10:52 am
Actually every cigar has a cap at the top that is put there to be taken off without needing a cut. It is made of lower quailty tobacco that the rest of the cigar.Removing the cap gives the same effect as a cut. The problem is if you do not cut all of the cap you get some of the tast of the lower qua...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Evidence showing the SEC schedule bias for Alabama and Auburn - 1970tiger on 7/25/13 at 10:06 pm
The scheduling and what goes on in the office affects all the teams in the SEC. How would Ark fans feel if the beat Bama, and lose to Fla and another west team. Bama does not lose to Ky & Tenn or any other west team. Bama goes to the championship game because it only has one loss. Ark stays hom...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: What's with the "Saban to coach at ___________" every freaking week??? - 1970tiger on 7/25/13 at 9:51 pm
Youv'e got to be kidding if you think Bama can match Texas, I am having trouble thinking of another fanbase that is as wealthy. Hell they UT fans could put him in a few oil deals each year that would top serveral million. Not to mention TV deals in Texas due to its size. Also he could dominate th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Voting with ID - 1970tiger on 7/25/13 at 4:43 pm
I have no problem with voter Ids. This is not a right or left wing statement, but I personally believe anyone should be able to show up at the polls and vote if they can provide proper proof they are old enough and live in the district. ID’s do not stop fraud. If I am going to vote people it ...

re: LSU, Gators and Vols carried Bama for Years - 1970tiger on 7/25/13 at 11:08 am
I was talking purely from a financial prospective in the 50s & 60s of when a team went to play at LSU, Fl and Tenn. I did not mean to limit it to just Bama. Back then they split the gate. Also there was no sharing of TV revenue, and there was only 1 game a week on TV. Here is a break down of ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Les Miles Won't Call Plays This Season - 1970tiger on 7/25/13 at 9:02 am
The problem has always been the people on here want LSU to have this wide open offense that passes almost every down. The problem is that doesn’t usually win championships. I agree as any head coach Les probably in certain situations says we need to do this or that. (Run time off. Let’s not thro...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
