  1. Went to dinner with some friends. 2 pitchers of margaritas...now way I can digest that tonight.
  2. Kevin Minter signed on with the Bengals. http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2017/03/former_lsu_lb_kevin_minter_agr.html#incart_river_index
  3. How does a school like Like VfreakingCU spawn so many basketball coaches?
  4. Turns out his girlfriend has worked in New Orleans for a while...
  5. Saints, LB Manti Te'o near agreement on contract 2:22 PM ET ESPN.com news services Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print comment Former Chargers inside linebacker Manti Te'o is close to a deal with the New Orleans Saints, a source told ESPN's Dan Graziano. A contract could be signed by Tuesday, the source said. The Saints have already signed one inside linebacker this year, giving A.J. Klein a three-year, $15 million deal. But they are apparently seeking more depth and upgrades throughout their defense, which coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis labeled as a top priority this offseason. The Saints' embattled defense showed signs of improvement last year in Dennis Allen's first full year as defensive coordinator. But they still finished 27th in yards allowed and 31st in points allowed. Last year's starting middle linebacker, Craig Robertson, played well, but he could be moved outside. The Chargers traded up in the 2013 draft to select Te'o in the second round out of Notre Dame. He has made 34 starts in 38 games, recording 221 tackles, 2 interceptions and 1½ sacks. In 2016, Te'o suffered a torn Achilles tendon in Week 3 against the Colts and was done for the year. Te'o, who turned 26 in January, has missed a combined 26 games in his four previous NFL seasons.
  6. Really shattering. I wish him well and hope they find a cure for ALS soon. http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/49ers/2017/03/19/dwight-clark-als-diagnosed-san-francisco-catch/99396618/
  7. I'd love to see Claiborne flourish in a new situation. I really don't care about the Jets one way or another, but Claiborne and the Cowboys didn't fit well.
  8. Funny how we lose out on a transfer for Clempsin one day, and get a 4 year OL commit the next. Welcome aboard, young man. Keep you nose clean, do your homework, and listen to your coaches. Do those 3 things and the NFL will be beating a path to your door before you know it.
  9. Oh well. Nothing but Tiger Bait henceforth.
  10. Sorry that I did not see this earlier, but wanted to wish you a happy birthday!!! Keep the good beer flowing!
  11. I will really miss the chat room. I was one of the mischievous ones in chat, which can't really be replicated in game threads. It really was good fun for those of us away from actual games. One option might be to look at something like Google hangout for game days? We had some people that were way more active in chat than they are in the forums (GGH, LSUBatGirl, and TigerinTally come to mind) and I'd hate to see them participate less in the absence of chat. Always looked forward to virtual and real cocktails with my Tigalaya friends on Saturdays and getting updates on how far Northshore Mom's Aussie friends had embraced 'Merican football! lol.
  12. The big shoes to fill, IMHO, will be Beckwith and Riley.
  13. http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/crime/article137317553.html Hot story: Miami lawyer’s pants erupt in flames during arson trial in court Miami lawyer Stephen Gutierrez was arguing an arson case in trial on Wednesday when his pants caught on fire.TheLawDoctor.net BY DAVID OVALLE dovalle@miamiherald.com LINKEDIN GOOGLE+ PINTEREST REDDIT PRINT ORDER REPRINT OF THIS STORY A Miami defense lawyer’s pants burst into flames Wednesday afternoon as he began his closing arguments in front of a jury — in an arson case. Stephen Gutierrez, who was arguing that his client’s car spontaneously combusted and was not intentionally set on fire, had been fiddling in his pocket as he was about to address jurors when smoke began billowing out his right pocket, witnesses told the Miami Herald. Claudy Charles Miami-Dade Corrections He rushed out of the Miami courtroom, leaving spectators stunned. After jurors were ushered out, Gutierrez returned unharmed, with a singed pocket, and insisted it wasn’t a staged defense demonstration gone wrong, observers said. Instead, Gutierrez blamed a faulty battery in an e-cigarette, witnesses told the Miami Herald. “It was surreal,” one observer told the Miami Herald. Repeated calls to Gutierrez’s cellphone went unanswered. Miami-Dade police and prosecutors are now investigating the episode. Officers seized several frayed e-cigarette batteries as evidence. “A lot of people could have been hurt,” another observer in court told the Miami Herald. Gutierrez was representing Claudy Charles, 48, who is accused of intentionally setting his car on fire in South Miami-Dade. He had just started his closing arguments when the fire broke out. Jurors convicted Charles anyway of second-degree arson. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Michael Hanzman, in the coming days, could decide to hold Gutierrez in contempt of court. The 28-year-old lawyer graduated from Florida International University’s law school in 2015. With millions of users across the country, e-cigarettes deliver vaporized nicotine through a heated liquid solution. But questions about the health and fire risks of the products have mounted, with the U.S. Department of Transportation recently banning e-cigarettes from checked bags on airplanes. Last year, a Naples man filed suit in Miami-Dade after an e-cigarette exploded in his mouth, leaving him in a coma.
