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 […]


LSU in Preseason Coaches’ Poll

The first major preseason poll has been released, the USA Today Coaches’ Poll brought to you by your friendly neighborhood pyramid scheme. In all, there are seven total SEC teams ranked throughout the top 25. The top overall team is Florida State, rightly so after winning last year’s title and returning the reigning Heisman Trophy […]


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 […]


2014 SEC Football Uniform Changes

Each year, some number of SEC schools will either rebrand, redesign their uniforms, or offer a new twist on their sartorial traditions. 2014 is no different, as we look at what each team has in store for 2014. Alabama Old tried-and-true. Alabama rarely changes anything & the last major news was the Nike Pro Combat […]


The Next Breakout Star: Running Backs

On a warm October night last year, ESPN descended on City Park in New Orleans to broadcast a nationally televised contest between two proud Louisiana football powerhouses: the John Curtis Patriots and the St. Augustine Purple Knights. Both teams were loaded with college prospects, and the Patriots entered the game as the top-ranked team in […]


The Next Breakout Star: Defensive Backs

It was November 23rd. LSU was welcoming the Johnny Manziel-led Aggies to Tiger Stadium on a cold, rainy November day. Not only did LSU fans need to be nervous about Manziel’s usual heroics–although we knew that LSU’s John Chavis defense was more than up to the task after the 2012 domination–but the Tigers sported a […]


LSU Alumni Association Announces 2014 Band Reunion

The 2014 LSU Tiger Band Reunion will take place on October 18th during the LSU vs Kentucky football game, the LSU Alumni Association announced in an email to band alumni this week. The annual event is a huge draw for the Alumni Association, bringing over 250 former instrumentalists, Golden Girls and color guard members back […]


LSU will be a Playoff Contender

There’s a new twist on preseason polls this year. Instead of your run of the mill “I think these guys are going to be good!” polls, we’ll get to hear about “playoff contenders.” In most polls, LSU will most likely fall anywhere from 15-10. I call this Default LSU. Every year, a Les Miles team is […]
