Right now, I'm moving my family from Little Rock, Ark, to New Jersey pursuant to military orders. The house is a mess, because we are organizing things for the movers. Those of you who have spent your adulthood in the military will know what I mean when I say that this is a trying time. I can't complain, though, because some of my fellow soldiers have already been killed in Iraq. Moving is tough, but it beats getting killed. Soldiers don't want to die . . . but we are sworn to take that risk in defense of our folks at home. During my military tour in Arkansas, I've been a regular poster on the Hog board Woopig.net, it's true. Those guys over there are good folks, just like you and me. They love the Hogs very much. They have bashed Houston Nutt when the man deserved it. The Nutt bashers have been called "bad fans" by the majority of other Hog fans. I happen to agree with the Nutt bashers. I don't think that Nutt will cut it. I've not said that over there because I'm an outsider and a guest over there, but that's what I believe. The point is that fans who don't think a coach can cut it ought to be able to state that point without having his loyalty to his home team challenged. Hog fans who don't like Nutt are still good Hog fans. LSU Tiger fans who don't like Smoke Laval or John Brady are still good Tiger fans. I've got to move away from my beloved South, and I'll miss you all dearly. I'll be back as quickly as I can. All of my fellow LSU fans should remember that I bleed purple and gold, always. I'm not going to the combat front in Iraq, so please don't mistake me for a hero. I'll always be there to fight when Louisiana is attacked . . . just like I was in January, 1815. It will take me a while to get settled up there. I'll be back here to post at that time.
