As Oregon Showdown Nears Lawyer Says Lift LSU’s Jefferson’s Suspension
Written by 

LSUJordan Jefferson's lawyer says he will asked the university and coach Les Miles to consider lifting the LSU quarterback's suspension while the legal process plays out in the case of a recent bar brawl  involving numerous LSU football players. Jefferson was suspended for missing curfew on the night of the brawl...

 

Some hither, others yon: Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas believes Saturday's showdown with LSU is a bigger game than last season's BCS National Championship Game. "That game helps me prepare me because it's really the same kind of game, he told the Oregonian. "It's a different game, a way bigger game to me, a bigger that the national championship game because it's our opening game. It's like the championship game. If we lose this game, it's a done season."...

Against Oregon, LSU will need leadership from quarterback Jarrett Lee. They don't need him to win the game -- there's plenty of talent around to do that -- they just need consistency, which hasn't been Lee's strength in the past, but he's getting another opportunity in his final season. The Tigers might be better off with someone at quarterback who wants to make the most of it.; The Ducks are favored by 3 points...If Gaddafi is looking for  a place where  no one will find him, he should go to a Tulane home football game. No one will find him there...Former Saints RB Mike Bell and LSU tight end Richard Dickson have been cut by the Lions...



Tigerdroppings.com has taken a look at LSU's recruitment of quarterbacks:

2005   Ryan Perrilloux (later kicked off team)
2006   No QBs signed.
2007   Jarrett Lee signed
2008   Jordan Jefferson signed
2009   Chris Garrett (left team)   Russell Sheppard (designated as an athlete).
2010   Zach Lee (signed baseball contract with Dodgers)
 "That's basically two quarterbacks that are finishing out with LSU
And now we're expecting a quarterback to come in who was kicked out of Georgia. This guy is going to lead the charge? Boy oh boy."

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
