Urban Meyer Leaving or Staying? John Chavis Leaving?

COACHING CHANGES The big news in college football over the weekend was that Florida head coach Urban Meyer announced that he was resigning due to health reasons.  I had previously heard that Meyer was struggling with some potentially major health problems and figured that Meyer wouldn’t be at Florida forever as a result.   But like everyone […]

Recruiting: Class of 2011 Update

In my last update, I mentioned that LSU was expecting to receive a commitment for the Class of 2011 on Friday from North Carolina receiver Nigel King.  Well, King decided to postpone his announcement so that he could get to know LSU’s new receivers coach Billy Gonzales before making a decision.  That announcement could come […]

All-LSU Team Of The Decade: Defense

Recruiting Over the weekend, Dallas wide receiver Mike Davis, an LSU Commitment since February, took an official visit to Texas.  He received an offer from the Longhorns and decided to accept it.   Texas generally offers all of their in-state prospects very early, so when Davis did not receive one, he moved on and decided on […]

New Offensive Coordinator? All-LSU Team of the Decade – Offense

Coaching Rumors While it seemed like a done deal that Tyke Tolbert would be LSU’s next wide receivers coach, reports surfaced Thursday night that Florida wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales would be joining LSU’s staff.   It’s still a little unclear whether Gonzales will be coming as an offensive coordinator or as a wide receivers coach.  […]

Commitment #26 errr #25

Miami running back Jahkori Gore committed to LSU on Tuesday night, and is LSU’s 26th commitment for the Class of 2010.  I just discussed Gore in my last update, which includes some highlights.  I really, really like Gore as a prospect and am very excited about him becoming an LSU Tiger.  On Wednesday afternoon, news […]

Update on Various Topics

I haven’t been able to post at all this week, and we’ve had a lot going on.  I’m going to try and play catch up and provide some decent Friday morning reading material in doing so.  LSU’s win over Arkansas seems to have quieted the intense criticism of Les Miles and the coaching staff, at least a […]

Quick Coaching Update

It looks like Washington Redskins assistant Jerry Gray is going to be the new head coach at Memphis.  As reported earlier, LSU running backs coach Larry Porter was a finalist for that job.  However, LSU is not out of the woods yet.  It seems that Larry Porter is still a candidate to become the offensive […]

“The Meltdown In Mississippi”

The fallout from Saturday’s devastating loss to Ole Miss has been tremendous, and rightfully so.  Today, the national media took their turn using Les Miles as a punching bag, calling him everything from a “liar” to a “nincompoop.”  I’d say they were being rather kind.  The coaching blunders, confusion, lack of control, and complete idiocy […]

Ole Miss Preview

This is the third of three articles posted today.  Don’t miss the other two, which are just below this one on the main page.  LSU fans are ate up with the negativity this week after a very poor performance last Saturday against Louisiana Tech.  The offense ran the ball well and passed the ball poorly; however, […]

Another Look At The Bowls

LSU’s bowl picture became a bit clearer with their loss to Alabama on Saturday, and they now seem to be on a crash course with the Capital One Bowl in Orlando. With Penn State losing to Ohio State last weekend, the Nittany Lions appear to be the likely opponent. Here is the deal with the […]
