It doesn’t matter who the QB is

If someone asked you, “What kind of team is LSU?” How would you answer? Since 2005, when Les Miles arrived, the answer would probably come easily. It would be some combination of strong defense, B1G running, & coaching quirks to keep things spicy. Before you got to pondering QB play, you’d probably mention  how special […]

Breakout Star – Tight End

I know you must be thinking, “A breakout tight end at LSU? Impossible. How does a player breakout if he’s anchored to the o-line while the running backs do all of the heavy lifting?’ Traditionally, you’d be correct to think these things; however, the times are a changing, my friend, and one guy has the […]

The Next Breakout Star – Quarterbacks

The Next Breakout Star – Special Teams

LSU’s placekickers under Les Miles have been an often underrated strength of some “damn strong” football teams. From Colt David to Josh Jasper to Drew Alleman, Tiger fans have seen their fair share of clutch kicks (and some impeccably executed fakes) over the years. It’s been almost a year since a walk-on redshirt freshman from […]

The Next Breakout Star – Defensive Line

One of the most exciting players to play LSU defensive line in the past few years has been Keke Mingo. Mingo, the track-running gazelle of a defensive end (famous for this run down of a rather quick Oregon running back), went in the first round of the NFL draft just a couple short years ago. […]

The Next Breakout Star: Linebacker

Yes, he broke onto the scene last year with an impressive Sophomore season. Yes, he started several games and played exceptionally well in all of them. But this is the year that Kwon Alexander puts his name on the national radar, flying around the field making the plays we’ve seen him make, but doing it […]
