Re: 2020 Football Season

Even Finebaum only put the odds of a season at 25% and that’s based on things magically improving quickly.

Re: The Saharan dust cloud

Yeah, I've read it's not uncommon during Hurricane season, but one this big hasn't happened in a long time. Seriously,.... How F'ED UP is 2020??? Get your cameras though, they say the sunrises and sunsets are stunningly beautiful. Bonus: hot dry desert air prevents tropical weather formations. So, ...

curious why "likely?" Most other speculation is he doesn't get drafted because he doesn't throw hard enough. Consensus seems to be he won't sign as a UFA but who knows?
the article states he could go in round 2 and is highly likely to get drafted.

Re: High school football

Louisiana was supposed to start practice yesterday. Not sure if that got delayed or not due to the storm.

Teams/schools aren’t allowed to provide water, so kids have to bring their own. At least according to radio talk over the weekend.

Re: Tulane-LSU Football

I’d be open to an uneven series with our games in the dome, provided we get the first game. Or an astronomical buyout for when they bail on us after we go there.

Re: Raising revenue and cutting expenses

WBB used to use the scheduling mentioned above in the early 2000s for CUSA. I think we were paired with USM. But every conf road trip was a Fri/Sun pairing of 2 teams.

I realize that this is petty, but it really bugs me. The Advocate in their daily update of COVID19 statistics has a color coded map of Louisiana. Each parish is color coded according to how many cases have been reported. Orleans and Jefferson, of course, are in the highest category, bright red. (Je...

Re: 5 FBS Conferences ask for help.

the cynic in me feels like the Power 5 try to use this request as their way to break away.

of course, their other option is for them to use it to cut sports they don't want to support.
