Friday Morning Tiger Scattershooting-BCS Edition

One of the craziest things I have ever seen on live TV was Landon Collins mom visibly upset at him choosing Alabama over LSU. Usually the family will begrudgingly go along with their son to show solidarity. Not this mama. I love her for that. Continue reading

Even Bama Fans Think This Game Will Be Close

Alabama sports writers see the game very similar to the way Louisiana sports writers see the game. Close. Continue reading

LSU Moving Up Recruiting Lists

With the addition of Gunner Kiel (Columbus, Ind./Columbus East), the No. 2 ranked QB in the nation, LSU has jumped up the rankings in many recruiting polls. The former Indiana commit is the fifth ESPNU 150 prospect to commit to coach Les Miles.

Saban’s first question to Vaught: “How did you do it?” Continue reading

All Quiet At LSU

LSU and words like quiet have not gone together in a long time.

Semester grades are coming up, so I will still hold my breath a tiny bit, but all has been calm recently on the LSU front. No fights, suspensions, coaches leaving, or anything negative around the football program.

As I am writing this, I know that if something happens, people may blame me. Continue reading

I’ll Take Les Anyday Over Saban

If I would have told you before the “Game of the Century” that one of the teams would miss 4 field goals, take unnecessary risks, put an injured player back to return a punt and generally was out-coached in the game, 99% of the public would have guessed Nick Saban coaching Les Miles’ pants off.

Why LSU Shouldn’t Play Bama Again

Let me start off by saying that nothing would make me happier than beating Alabama again to send the Crimson Tide nation home once and for all knowing they are 2nd best.
