    High School Graduation

    So many years ago we transferred our son to public school where we thought we would find better resources to deal with his Autism Spectrum Disorder. We entered with a son who teachers had to ask him to let others answer questions. We withdrew when I found our son, alone in a cafeteria, walking in a small circle while pushing a pencil with his foot, not speaking, but falling into my arms when he recognized I had come to him. From being banned from lunch recess because “I don’t have enough teachers to watch him”, and “teachers deserve lunch too” to “he can’t take this AP class because he has an accommodation”-(said in front of his attorney) (the accommodation was using an Alpha Smart to write his assignments). From the lies told to justify actions that lead to injuries to our son, and I say lies because I have documentation of events from the same people who directly contradicted themselves later in ARD meetings. FERPA violations, discussions at social gathering of my son and his issues by school officials to people they were unaware were friends of mine. Insight to what was really happening to our son was revealed in those talks, ironically, by people who automatically threw out the privacy concern issue when refusing to answer our questions. I will spare you the 30 page version of the events, but not the slanderous statement that my son had the hollow look of a serial killer. This was not a sentiment shared by the school psychologist, my son’s private psychologist, or the consultant hired from our local major university. I can only imagine the impact that statement had on others at the school. It was suggested, by the few who did watch out for our son, that we find an alternate place for him as the people at the school did not have the skills to work with our son. The journey back; therapeutic riding, speech therapy, range time and many hours of just letting him know he was safe. Sitting in his room with him when it took hours to write a few sentences, finishing a math test in 40 seconds (I don’t read the questions, you just look at the equations and you know the answers). Weekly sessions with his psychologist, who said “I just love his mind”, and “it breaks my heart that so seemingly minor things can trip him up so”. I guess the administrators who said our son would never be able to keep up were right. With a chance to gather himself and grow my son will now graduate from High School in a few weeks with a 4.3 GPA. I am so proud of him for refusing to just keep up. More importantly, as I write this, he is in the room next to me laughing while talking to his best friend. There was a time I thought I would never hear that laugh again. To use his expression, “Today is a very good day”.

    Half way through the season I didn't believe we would make it to Omaha. Hats off to the Tigers for putting together a great run at the end. Didn't quite grab the brass ring though. Costly errors, lack of hits and timely hits when we needed them did us in last night. Finishing second is never fun because it means you were "that" close to being the champs. We'll be back. Go Tigers

    CWS - LSU Baseball vs. Oregon State

    I have an enormous amount of respect for LSU athletics. And I can't stand LSU. You guys winning at Olsen in 1989 sticks in my (and every Aggie of my generation and older) craw. But that is the nature of competition for you. Y'all won fair and square. In fact last year I actually met Mike Bianco, your catcher on that team and now the OM baseball coach and actually got to talk to him for a bit in a restaurant. He was a good rep for LSU but also for OM as well.

    Lots of whining on twitter etc about the hp umps wide strike zone; but as Burke said on sec now is that LSU adapted to and took advantage of it, Oregon State didn't. or as Gunny Highway would say: "Improvise, Adapt and Overcome!"

    I told my brother prior to the start of the CWS that if I were a neutral and putting money down on any team, it would be you guys. Now you're in the finals. As an Aggie, it makes me sick. But dammit, you guys get to Omaha and know what to do. Mucho respect.

    Joke Thread

    Clotile goes to doctor Thibodeaux, worried about Boudreaux’s temper.Thibodeaux ask, “What’s the problem?Clotile says, “Doctor, I don’t know what to do. Everyday Boudreaux seems to lose his temper for no reason, and it scares me.” Thibodeaux says, “I have a cure for that. When it seems that Boudreaux is getting angry, just take a glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don’t swallow it until he either leaves the room or goes to bed and falls asleep.” Two weeks later Clotile goes back to the doctor, looking fresh and reborn. She says, “Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every time Boudreaux started losing it, I swished with water. I swished and swished, and he calmed right down! How does a glass of water do that?” Thibodeaux says, “The water itself does nothing. It’s keeping your mouth shut that does the trick…”

    2017 LSU Football, By The Numbers

    Good point. If you have a very good scheme against lower quality teams, and you get to LSU and put our talent into a good scheme, it certainly worked for Aranda. He seems to run a modern defense that keeps the offense guessing, and with Jamal Adams, Tre White, and Godchaux, it worked real well. If Canada has nearly as much success as Aranda did his first season, I'll be VERY HAPPY!

    2017 LSU Football, By The Numbers

    I get where your coming from, LSU tried to hire the coach from UofH, he didn't go up against SEC D's week end and week out. Made a big push. Aranda didn't before getting to LSU, but he seemed to do good job last year. The Cal Lutheran, S. Utah, Delta St, Wiskey, Hawaii and Utah St aren't SEC, but looks like he did well in the transition. 2005–2006 Cal Lutheran (DC/LB) 2007 Delta State (co-DC/LB) 2008 Southern Utah (DC) 2008–2009 Hawaii (DL) 2010–2011 Hawaii (DC) 2012 Utah State (DC) 2013–2015 Wisconsin (DC/ILB) LSU (AHC/DC)

    OLB K’Lavon Chaisson Particulars: 6 feet 5, 230 pounds, true freshman Recruiting background: 5-star prospect in 2017 signing class, from Houston North Shore The Skinny: Considering the lengths Ed Orgeron went to get Chaisson on campus — he made a 3 a.m. visit to his Houston home before Chaisson left for a trip to Gainesville — his playing time seemingly is guaranteed. It also helps that he’s a freakishly athletic rush end who is the heir apparent to Arden Key. Chaisson is taking his opportunity seriously, with one staff member telling me he ran his conditioning test this summer with the receivers and defensive backs and “crushed it.” OL Austin Deculus Particulars: 6-6, 345 pounds, true freshman Recruiting background: 4-star prospect in 2017 signing class, from Cypress (Texas) Cy-Fair The Skinny: Although he was one of the top tackle prospects in the 2017 class, Deculus might find his way onto the field early in his career as a guard. With both starting tackles returning, Deculus was in the competition at left guard during the spring; he took reps at all four line spots other than center. It remains to be seen if Deculus can beat out holdovers such as Garrett Brumfield and Donavaughn Campbell, but there is virtually no chance he redshirts as offensive line coach Jeff Grimes prepares Deculus to be one of his anchors in 2018. S Grant Delpit Particulars: 6-3, 191 pounds, true freshman Recruiting background: 4-star prospect in 2017 signing class, from Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy The Skinny: Each season, there are freshman early enrollees who turn heads in spring football. Delpit took that crown this year. With starting safeties Jamal Adams and Rickey Jefferson off to the NFL, both jobs are up for grabs. It remains to be seen if Delpit can beat out veterans John Battle or Ed Paris, a converted corner, but he will see the field for the Tigers in 2017 and has the potential to be a breakout star in 2018. S JaCoby Stevens Particulars: 6-2, 214 pounds, true freshman Recruiting background: 5-star prospect in 2017 signing class, from Murfreesboro (Tenn.) Oakland The Skinny: The No. 1 safety prospect in the 2017 class, Stevens should join Delpit as the safety tandem of the future and will carry the “DBU” flag for the program. There is no mistaking Stevens, who physically looks like a linebacker playing safety. He also enrolled early, flashing his potential this spring. He might not start against BYU in the opener, but don’t be surprised if he finds his way into the starting lineup before his freshman season ends. CB Kary Vincent Jr. Particulars: 5-10, 175 pounds, true freshman Recruiting background: 4-star prospect in 2017 signing class, from Port Arthur (Texas) Memorial The Skinny: With seniors Tre’Davious White and Dwayne Thomas departing, there are snaps to be had at corner, and Vincent has the physical tools and know-how to capitalize. Vincent was a Texas high school state champion sprinter and runs a 4.38 40-yard dash. He also wowed Orgeron and defensive coordinate Dave Aranda with his football IQ. What else would you expect from the son of a former pro player? Expect Vincent to be a Day One contributor in nickel packages.

    2018 RB A. J. Carter de-commits from LSU

    A 3*, 6-0 220 RB from Many HS flipped his commitment from UCLA to LSU yesterday. Carter is LSU's third RB in this years class, joining Chris Curry and ATH Tae Provens. He is the top ranked RB in Louisiana and #31 nationally. A. J. also held 18 scholarship offers including Arizona St., Arkansas, Mississippi St. and Texas Tech in addition to UCLA. The addition of Carter now brings the Tigers commitment total for the 2018 class to 22. Welcome aboard A. J.! https://www.seccountry.com/lsu/lsu-flipped-one-time-ucla-rb-commit-aj-carter http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/sports/lsu/article_43c548e2-5aab-11e7-a844-2365c635f526.html http://www.nola.com/recruiting/index.ssf/2017/06/lsu_flips_many_rb_aj_carter_fr.html#incart_river_index

    Tigers in the NFL

    The hits just keep on coming........ Former LSU Tiger Deion Jones was best rookie linebacker in the NFL last season Deion Jones was one of the best players in last year's rookie class. Streeter Lecka/Getty Imagese Corey Knapp Posted 11 hours ago Do not pass to the receiver whom Deion Jones is covering. Just don’t do it. Because it probably won’t end well for your offense. According to Pro Football Focus, the former LSU standout and Atlanta Falcons linebacker was far and away the best rookie linebacker in pass coverage a year ago. Dissecting the abbreviations on the stat, it’s yards allowed per snap dropped into coverage, and Jones ranked tops among the nine linebackers in the rookie class. To go along with those stingy coverage numbers, Jones also had 108 tackles and 11 passes defended in 15 games. He returned two of his three interceptions for touchdowns, including a 90-yard pick-six against the Saints in his hometown of New Orleans on Monday Night Football. Jones will be reunited in Atlanta’s linebacking core with his former LSU teammate Duke Riley, who the Falcons drafted in the second round of April’s draft.

    Pedifile at OSU?

    Alright, y'all. . . I'm prolly gonna be real unpopular here with what I say, but let's look at this. . . Heimlich was 13 to 15 when this took place. Yeah, at that age he should know between right and wrong, but he IS still a child himself and only beginning to discover his own sexuality. Those hormones and curiosity could very well overrun his good senses in that respect. (I don't mean this as an excuse, so please understand me.) Yet, even as I say this, I am cutting him no excuses for that behavior at the time. What I AM saying, though, is that no one should be eternally condemned for the sins they have committed. It is entirely possible that he has turned around since that time. He was listed as a category one offender by the state of Washington which indicates that recidivism for such acts wold be expected to be around 1.2%, thus he has a very low likelihood of being a repeat offender at this time. I believe it is entirely wrong for us to condemn a young man or woman for acts committed when in their youth and when they haven't a full understanding of the ramifications of their actions. I also believe that BASEBALL has not a damned thing to do with his questionable actions in the past and is therefore not related at all. Give the young man a break and let him have the opportunity to redeem himself and paint a new picture over the past. If he shows signs of recidivism, then cast him into the deepest fires of hell, but keep in mind that none of us are perfect either. Did anyone here ever steal a candy bar from the grocery? Okay, no big deal. But did anyone here ever do it more than once? Well - that shows a person to be an incorrigible shoplifter, and shoplifting is a felony in most places. See where I'm going? All I'm saying is to give the young man a chance to correct his errors in life. Don't condemn him to the ninth level of hell here where it will show up with every google search from now to eternity. Show a wee bit of grace.
