i appreciate the courtesy you show folks constantly in your posts on rtf. you say yesir and thank you maam to dr.ed, miss sylvia, the caire's and many others throughout the year. you are always first to congratulate others on their dogs performance in trials. i enjoy your admiration and dedication to the great dogs you know and train with, like ali, tia etc. i like that you always state your appreciation for danny farmer and your pros at vinewood by noting the positive impact they have on you, your dog and the sport. i like the way you work hard and play hard. that bowl of christmas dinner gumbo you posted the picture of looked fabulous. in all respects you seem to be a young man that a mother and father "raised right"!
if i am one of the folks who "floored you" i am here to say i am sorry.
but let's face it, your love of your team(which i also appreciate btw) and your seething envy of "the gumps" have caused you to post things in this thread that seriously bring your status as a football prognosticatior into doubt.
i wish you well in the upcoming trial season and i wish the lsu tigers well in their work going into recruiting and the upcoming signing day.
Regarding Oregon, I personally hate that style of football, I much prefer the smashmouth style of LSU, Alabama and Stanford. I also like the more pro style that USC played under Pete Carrol, so it frustrates me to no end when I see it working so well. If Oregon had played in the NC bowl, that would have been on of the few times I rooted for an eastern team against a Pac 12 team. I still think they would have put up a much better showing than ND did, and that Stanford (even though they lost to ND), would have given Alabama a game.
I too like Stanford and if I was a highly recruited kid coming out of High School, that would be my choice. They would have played a better game than ND, but I think Bama was just too much team for anyone to upset.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

The game monday night proved that with ND playing like they have played all year wasn't near good enough to of played with Alabama on their "A" game.
Get over it, look to next year and tell us why ole Mett siah will be the leading QB in the nation and give us a breakdown of why LSU will be the best team in Americana/the land/world-- or maybe just only the best team in there state next year...
I love trash talking & really enjoy it when somebody else is good @ it in return. For the most part, I get along well with Alabama fans. Honestly it's the pompous a$$hats who think that they are god's gift to CFB & everything else that really get me. Do NOT get me wrong, LSU has their share of dbags & we have almost got into it with them before because of their lack of respect towards opposing fans.
All that said, I can't wait for College Baseball. LSU is suppose to be good. Hopefully the Jeckyll & Hyde phenomenon of a year ago is over with.
Thanks for the well wishes. Good luck to you as well.
On a serious note. McCarron did break Peytons previous record of TD-INT ratio.. Ended the season with 30TD'S-3ints. Not to bad right there.
