    Hurricane Harvey

    Yesterday was my youngest Birthday, I got out, made it over to find her a cake. A Birthday Party to remember. Today, the girls and I made it back to the store, they decided on Red Beans, Rice and Sausage. I got everything I needed to make a Shrimp Alfredo Pasta. Once finished cooking, I called a good friend with the Harris County Sheriff's Office, asking where I could deliver. We loaded up, made it over to District 5 station. Walking in with two large pans of hot food. I saw Men and Women in Blue, eating sandwiches out of a box lunch. They deserve better. They were very thankful, we thanked them for their service. We Back the Blue. God Bless them.

    So I have been busy....

    Some of you may have already ready this on Facebook, but I want to share here too. "Editor's Note: Hi all, My name is Greg Graham. I'm the one who has been maintaining and posting to the MACNA 2017 Facebook over the past year. I founded Bayou Reefkeeping in March of 2011 with the intent of bringing MACNA to Louisiana. Together with Adam Clayton and Eric Owens, we were ultimately able to make that become a reality! The three of us have had countless others along the way work tirelessly with us whenever requested, no questions asked. I cannot even begin to thank everyone for their time and diligent efforts to make our MACNA a huge success. So I will simply tell all of them who are reading: JOB WELL DONE! I had a saltwater aquarium in my college apartment many years ago and it was inspired by my mom who always kept aquariums at home. They were a part of daily life growing up. Some years after college, I decided to setup a reef tank. In 2004 I met with a bunch of local hobbyists and they were just beaming as they talked about going to a MACNA a couple years prior in Dallas. With their help, I soon was well on my way to setting up my first reef tank in late 2004/early 2005. Some of my first fish are still thriving in my tanks today in fact! What's equally impressive is my wife tolerating my extreme obsession with marine aquariums all these years while taking care of those fish in my pieces of the reef in our living room. For many years after that 2004 conversation with local hobbyists, I would always think about those smiles as those guys told their stories about that MACNA trip to Dallas. I couldn't help but wish we had something like that in New Orleans. Oh what a great time it would be. Ultimately it led me to forming our club. The mere thought of forming a reef club always fascinated my dad. Especially when I told him it was a non-profit organization. He's asked me many questions over the years about the hobby. Meanwhile my mom has quietly watched her son enjoy aquariums just as she always has. By far the most rewarding part of MACNA for me was something I had not even anticipated ahead of time. It was spending a couple of hours with my amazingly supportive wife while showing my "Momma and Daddy" around at MACNA on Saturday!"

    Update on my mother in law and Max my mother in law went to rehab in a nursing home. She has recovered and her doctors and kids said she needed to stay there. To make a long story short, I was told in a crude way to "butt out". Things went into chaos and she went back to her old place NS Dad told her she was not getting the dog back and his siblings backed him up. Max was a lot of work, I was having to bathe him every morning. I bought a little pet corral as I thought the kennel was freaking him out. NS Son is almost a dog whisperer. He said Max is like a gremlin, don't let them eat or drink after midnight. We picked up the food and water at 6 and he got better. Yesterday, a sweet lady in our neighborhood answered my post and Max had an interview. Max got along well with her 7 year old rescued Havanese who is deaf. This lady is an amazing dog trainer and her dog responds to hand commands. We took the dogs for a walk off leash. Max was still nervous about walking on grass, and he was a trooper and both dogs got along very well. We got back to her house, and chatted. She said she wanted to give it a try as long as I was comfortable with it. This sweet lady is definitely the alpha and he had immediate respect for her. I went home and picked up the rest of his belongings. Please keep us in your prayers that it works out. What was even more rewarding, one of NS Sons classmates lives next door to her They swapped mobile numbers and made plans to go fishing in the ponds in the neighborhood.

I think my blood pressure has spiked and I am prepared to ritually Aztec sacrifice....something......I mean how in the hell do you emulate the Falcons and the 1992 Houston Oilers vs. the Bills and make it a microcosm of the last three years?......Mismanage the clock. Crap, I watch two high school games this weekend and in both games the coaches were able to correctly manage the clock. SMH, going to pour me a stiff drink. It would be rude to toss my tv out in the street, since that constitutes illegal dumping. Little kids couldn't "bleep" this up on NCAA football for an X-Box or Playstation.

    My Big Announcement Redo

    yeah. why i have been awol. this. we are well over a month behind, and now early october at BEST for move in. the rains delayed the roof by over a month and we were at a standstill. now, we keep hitting rain delays as august has had more than double the normal amount of rain already. there is a lot of concrete to pour, but we have not been able to get enough dry days in a row. and now, harvey. it will get there, i just have to deal with mother nature needs hormone replacement therapy. the drywall has been the project the week and hopefully that crew is going to work through the weekend if possible. i am working on all the inside details, meeting with trades people, going over every little detail with the project manager, and trying to get everything lined up so that part of it can be done without me here. (i'm in folsom now, working my ass off every day and haven't even gotten into covington i am so glued to the house.) i could not be more pleased with the way things look when they do get done. everything i saw in my head for how the outside was supposed to look... design, colors, etc.... does. at least so far on the outside. still stuff to do, but this is the way it looks as of today (porch columns not permanent, good wrapped ones will go up soon).

    Good Brother you got there. Look up two posts.. Posted Sunday at 07:26 PM · Report post JJ Watt has raised over $18 M for the effort. He was out passing out supplies today. Helping the need. There is a petition going around to rename the Hwy 99 outer loop of Houston now called Grand Parkway, after JJ. Only fitting. Been doing what I can around here. I had extra dust masks, gave those to two groups doing work, along with gloves. Gave one group a razor knife, to help removal of sheetrock. During the storm, I went into a couple attic's looking for roof leaks. We did cook for the Harris County Sheriff's Office. Before this storm started, some friends of mine bought an older home, I've been helping with the redo. After the BTR flood, I had friends and relatives asking me to over see the work. I did call a number of my subs and companies that I have accounts with, got them to give people my contractor cost, if they mentioned my name. I've helped an order of Nun's here in Houston, the Mother Teresa order. They have some in Lafayette and some in Baton Rouge, I've moved stuff from the three cities for them. Also helped families move as directed by the Nun's. I have been helping with Red Cross, whenever possible, in the Baton Rouge area, have helped to open and close shelters.

HistoricLly bad teams that we don't even like to mention existed in our past. thise teams never once got prison raped by an unranked team.

    Week 1 Polling and Trolling Let’s make rash judgments! by Poseur@ATVSPoseur Sep 6, 2017, 10:30am CDT It sucks watching them be happy Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports College football is back, and it is awesome. Week 1 didn’t look like that great of a lineup, but then it delivered a wonderful, wacky weekend that was everything that we all love about this sport. One week in, and all we know is that we know nothing. It’s always a bad idea to overreact to the first week, but let’s do it anyway. 1. Alabama. Maybe we know one thing: Bama is awesome again. They looked like the best team in the country against another contender. FSU played the role of LSU is Bama’s annual strangulation of its closest contender. 2. LSU. The sort of dominant win LSU normally only sees once a year, when they play the Aggies. 3. Auburn. It was just Georgia Southern, but Auburn looked exactly like the team they envisioned themselves to be. 4. Georgia. App St is feisty, and UGa put them away without much trouble. The big problem for the Dawgs is Eason’s injury. There isn’t a backup plan. 5. South Carolina. Outside of Bama, perhaps the best win of the weekend for the SEC. An inconsistent effort, but they planted their flag. 6. Mississippi St. Quietly had a perfect debut to the season. 7. Tennessee. A lot of teams will struggle with Georgia Tech, though the offense is a work in progress right now. 8. Vanderbilt. The annual “Vandy struggles with a Group of Five team” game never materialized. 9. Florida. Two pick-sixes cover up a multitude of sins. Michigan doesn’t even have a quarterback, and they ran roughshod over the Gators. 10. Arkansas. Sure, Florida A&M is a bad team, but that was a thorough destruction11. Kentucky. Not looking much like the trendy upset pick after struggling with Southern Miss. 12. Texas A&M. I’m not an Aggie fan, but I can’t even rationally talk about this game. Sumlin criminally mismanaged the second half, and let a game slip away that his team had no business losing. As fun as it was to watch, I’m honestly pissed at him and he’s not even my team’s coach. Oh, and now they are on their third team quarterback for the rest of the year. Enjoy. This is a dead team walking. 13. Missouri. Struggled mightily with a terrible football team. Asserted their will in the second half, so that’s a good sign. 14. Ole Miss. Hey, it’s a win. ACC 1. Clemson 2. Miami 3. Florida St. 4. Virginia Tech 5. Louisville After an offseason of basking in the glow of the collective media’s praise, the ACC responded to its well-deserved hype by going out in Week 1 and laying a collective egg. The ACC went 0-3 against its traditional bully/rival, the SEC. NC State was the poster boy for the ACC’s hype as an underrated, upcoming team flying under the radar. And then they went out there and lost to South Carolina. Louisville barely escaped Purdue, making me more confident in my pick against them, but they still move up due to the NCSU loss. Big 10 1. Ohio St. 2. Penn St. 3. Wisconsin 4. Michigan 5. Maryland Another conference that got a lot of preseason love for its overall quality, but here’s a very really question: who is the fifth-best team in the Big 10? The top three looked great, and Michigan took care of business eventually. The rest of the conference didn’t exactly faceplant, however they didn’t look all that impressive either. I’m withholding judgment on everyone, but let’s promote Maryland for beating Texas. Victory tastes better with crab. Big 12 1. Oklahoma 2. Kansas St. 3. Oklahoma St. 4. TCU 5. West Virginia We’re seeing some stratification. Nothing is going to convince me that Kansas is any good, nor are Iowa State and Texas Tech. But the bottom five is now clearly joined by Baylor and Texas, who were in a contest to see who could post a more embarrassing loss. In the abstract, losing to Liberty is objectively worse, but no one expected Baylor to be good. Texas’ loss will inspire another round of Texas is Back! Jokes. Which is a way of saying this top five looks like its going to be the top five all year, in differing orders. Pac-12 1. Stanford 2. USC 3. Washington 4. Oregon 5. Utah USC and Washington both struggled, though scuffling with Western Michigan is a lot more forgivable than doing the same with Rutgers. Rutgers, people. However, Stanford looked like the platonic ideal of Stanford. Yes, it’s Rice, but Stanford didn’t even break a sweat. It was a nothing opponent, but if any team not named Bama looks like their best selves right now, it’s Stanford. Current Playoff Teams Alabama Stanford Ohio St. Clemson Still early, but the top three really looks like the top three. Yeah, Ohio St looked vulnerable for a half on the road in what was possibly the biggest Indiana home game in history. They still won by four touchdowns. We shouldn’t read too much into week one, but what fun is that?

    LSU Freshmen Who Shined Against BYU

    LSU freshmen who shined against BYU Posted September 02, 2017 at 11:35 PM | Updated September 03, 2017 at 10:30 AM By Christopher Dabe LSU put more freshmen on the field to start the season than in any recent opener. Five of them started, and several more played throughout the 27-0 victory Saturday against BYU at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Of the 59 players listed in the game book has having played against BYU, 26 were either redshirt or true freshmen. Here's a look at how some of those freshmen fared in their first college game. Greedy Williams, cornerback Michael DeMocker His interception on a deep pass in the second quarter set up the second touchdown run by Derrius Guice. The redshirt freshman started in place of sophomore Kevin Toliver, who was one of 13 players who did not make the trip for the game. Williams had one tackle on kickoff coverage. Tyler Taylor, linebacker Michael DeMocker His first tackle came on a stop at the line of scrimmage on the second play of his college career, during an opening BYU series in which four true freshmen accounted or five of the team's six tackles. He got into the backfield on a handful of other plays. Ed Ingram & Saahdiq Charles, right guard Ingram helped create the opening for Guice on his two first-half touchdowns, both on runs from inside the BYU 5. Charles, another true freshman, started at right guard and Ingram replaced him at the start of the second quarter. Orgeron said during the week he planned to have them share snaps through the game. Redshirt freshman Lloyd Cushenberry played right guard on the final series. K'Lavon Chaisson, outside linebacker Chaisson started in Arden Key's spot at outside linebacker and reached the BYU backfield on a handful of snaps, finishing with three tackles. Grant Delpit, free safety Delpit was one of three true freshmen starters on defense and ended the first BYU series with two tackles. He and senior Ed Paris shared time at free safety. Myles Brennan, quarterback Photo by Michael DeMocker, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune Brennan replaced Danny Etling with a 27-0 lead in the fourth quarter and twice handed off to Clyde Edwards-Helaire before completing his only pass attempt -- also to Edwards-Helaire -- for 12 yards. Kary Vincent, nickel corner The true freshman is listed as a starter but began the game on the sideline as LSU opened with a traditional 3-4 look. He started the second half and broke up a third-and-4 pass in the third quarter that helped LSU keep alive its shutout. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, running back His first touch came on a swing pass from Etling in the fourth quarter for a gain of seven yards. He caught another pass from Brennan later in the quarter and rushed six times for 28 yards. Orgeron called this true freshman the "surprise of camp" after one week of practices. Neil Farrell, defensive end Farrell used his first play on defense to put a hit on BYU quarterback Tanner Mangum as he threw. That play came in the third quarter in place of fifth-year senior Christian LaCouture. Ray Thornton, outside linebacker The redshirt freshman pressured Mangum on a pass out of the end zone in the fourth quarter in a drive that ended with a failed punt fake deep in BYU territory. The rest of the list Other freshmen who got on the field: Jacob Phillips Patrick Queen Jontre Kirklin Eric Monroe Justin Jefferson Todd Harris Jr. Connor Culp Layton Garnett Jakori Savage Austin Deculus Lloyd Cushenberry Jamal Pettigrew Racey McMath Justin Thomas Glen Logan

    We indeed dominated, but I don't look at BYU as qualitatively much better than a team like Kent State. IMHO, BYU is still riding off of the hype of when Lavell Edwards was their coach and they were a factory for "also ran" NFL QBs. I liked the crispness of the offense and the fact that they went up tempo/no huddle a few times was a breath of fresh air for all Tiger fans. One of the biggest agonies for us was needless number of timeouts we took because it seemed like our staff was having an intellectual debate instead of calling a damned play. We are still - and probably will be for some time- a ground oriented offense, but I liked the fact that we were not running plays that played to the strength of the opposing defense. Touching on what Dad mentioned earlier, we had some true freshmen that not only saw time on the field but freaking shined. Our recruiting class last year may have been under ranked. I hope the kids that went elsewhere out of playing time concerns are waking up today and thinking "I effed up and should have stuck with LSU." Time to get back to being king of the hill.

I heard some commentators talking today about Eaux not being the most important guy on the coaching staff, and another chipped in and said that Dabo Sweeny is not the most important person on his coaching staff, and they just won the nat.
