re: Is it just me?

The LSU / A&M relationship is fun because neither attempts to control the other via any State Legislature. It has the makings of a pure sports rivalry. So, we can win or lose and go have a beer afterward without either looking down his nose too much at the other. We're kind of the same people. I don't think many of the LSU guys understand how great that is.



Outstandingly well said. That's a great fricking point

There are healthy and unhealthy rivalries. The former invigorate the hell out of any matchup and make it that much more fun. The latter are fricking toxic and can actually take the fun out of things.

re: Is it just me?
The truth is tSECRant is a microcosm of The Big Lebowski.

Fully 85% of the board (regardless as to team affiliation) are Walter;

And 10% are the Dude;

The rest are Donny. They just need to shut up.

re: Is it just me?
What I don't get is why a lot of the LSU posters try to emulate tsip frickery.

You have a better football history in everything except total wins

Your basketball history makes theirs look like ours

Your baseball history makes them look like a tball squad

re: Is it just me?
Wolfhound45, you know I adore you and consider you a friend and spiritual guide.
But you aren’t going to like my post.
And I probably wouldn’t make it if I wasn’t several vodkas into the Astros getting thumped by the Yanks tonight.


But you’re a highly intelligent man and a tribute to your university.
Of course there are other LSU grads who show similar characteristics.
But there are many who are ... more rustic.
I’m not judging them by their education or upbringing, because a man is who he is, based on the way he treats others—that’s what matters.

But there appears to be a much higher element of coarse, provincial LSU fans than what we have at our university.
Our fans tend to be graduates; whereas y’all have many ”followers.”
I think that leads to a torch and pitchfork crowd that becomes a tad fervent.

But that’s the gig that makes folks love Mardi Gras.
And Death Valley at night.
And the Louisiana vibe overall.

It’s intense at times, but it is what it is.

Honest answer? Much of what cardboardboxer said was spot on.

21-0 broke our fanbase.

Born in Baton Rouge my lovely A&M princess. Attended LSU briefly. But graduated on an ROTC scholarship from a school in Virginia.

re: Is it just me?
So they emulate a program that took a nose dive straight to the bottom from the moment their network launched in all sports?

Case in point, prior to the Longhorn Network, they had made a Regional 44 straight years. Since it launched, they've missed the tournament 4 times.

LSU hasn't had a losing season since 1999, but emulates a team that has had 4 losing seasons out of the last 9?

LSU has won 3 conference titles since the sips last tied for one and has made the Sweet 16 twice and Final Four once since the last time the sips made it out of the opening weekend.

See.
None of that surprises me a bit.
And it’s why I think you’re pretty darn great.

I frankly enjoy the crap out of LSU fans. Smart but they cut straight to the point.

re: Is it just me?
You are over thinking this my brother. Refer to my second post as well. tSECRant is an alternate reality where people let go of their inhibitions and act like their inner Walter. They believe they have full anonymity. People like you and I refuse to do that. We know better.

Off topic, have you seen the picture of MAJ Tulsi Gabbard on the political talk board?

Is it bad that I looked at it as if I was a board member reading her file for a promotion board nitpicking her DA photo for errors (I saw 2 in that picture)?

Bc in no way are we a rival. See the same from sips.

Pretty gay. The opposite of love is indifference.
