    Here's an excerpt from the chat:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Byron (Baton Rouge, LA): Have you ever attended a game at Death Valley, and do you have any plans to make a cameo at Saturday's game with the Game Day crew here in BR?

    Beano Cook: (3:16 PM ET ) I have never been fortunate enough to see a game at LSU. One of my goals before I die is to see a game there, but it has to be a night game. Incidentally, in the song Brown Eyed Girl, they made love in the grass behind the stadium and that stadium is supposed to be LSU. However, only the Tiger knows, and he's not talking. What happens at LSU stays at LSU. Also, Van Morrison's birthday was yesterday...he was 59.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I was kind of surprised by the Brown Eyed Girl comment. Has anyone heard this before? Is there any truth to it? I'd never heard that before.

    Morrison is from Northern Ireland. I doubt he knows much about Tiger Stadium. Damfino. :confused:

    yeah I was at the track running with my headphones onlast weekend when i heard that entire interview. Dude is losing his mind. He said ND was going 10-1 and that people there expect nothing less than a NC or its a failure. How long has it been? Talk about delusional....between bama and the domers i'm not sure who is more lost in the past.


    He told Mel Kiper how their best 2 recruits were lost to USuCk....it was like his claim to football excellence. Man, if thats the best ND has to talk about is recruits lost then I guess that says a lot.

    Oh and Ron Powlus will win 3 'more' heismans.


    when he made reference to the Brown Eyed Girl thing...the rest of the college gameday radio crew freaked out. They had no idea what he was trying to say really...it was very odd listening to Beano talking sex.

    The last time Beano made love, football was played with leather helmets. Beano is oooooooold. Here is his photograph from the first grade:

    Beano must have heard the same rumor I did a few years ago.
    Not sure that it's true, but the story claims Morrison wrote
    the song with colaboration from someone that attended LSU. :wink:
