Should LSU leave the SEC?

Ever since the 2013 SEC schedule came out, local Baton Rouge media & fans have groused about how, for the second straight year, the "temporary" SEC football schedule gave LSU teams like Georgia & Florida, while Alabama got to play the patsies of the league. To add insult to injury, LSU was shoved down the […]

Quick Look: LSU vs. Clemson

In one week, LSU faces the Tigers of the ACC in Clemson. Say what you will about LSU being in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl, this will be a great matchup in the Georgia Dome, a place that's treated LSU very well throughout the years. The offense comes into this game a more effective unit than it […]

LSU to Chick-Fil-A Bowl

LSU will be going Atlanta to face Clemson in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on New Year's Eve. Thanks to a BCS reshuffle with the addition of a MAC champion, the Tigers found themselves in the SEC's designated fifth (FIFTH!) bowl. This will be LSU's sixth trip to Atlanta for the Peach/Chick-Fil-A Bowl and it's never lost. […]

Tulane Moves To The Big East

The Big East became a little more festive by announcing that the Tulane Green Wave will be joining the conference as an all-sports member starting in the 2013-14 season. The move came as an attempt to bolster the quickly thinning ranks of the Big East with Rutgers departing for the greener pastures of the Big […]

Les Miles to Stay at LSU

We can finally call this Les Miles/Arkansas charade complete and done. In a press conference this afternoon, AD Joe Alleva confirmed Miles was indeed staying at LSU and would be signing a 7 year extension. That extension will also be accompanied by a raise but declined to comment on how much exactly, but the internet […]

SEC Bowl Predictions

And all that's left is SEC Championship Game between Alabama and Georgia… Despite whatever the outcome of that game, a few things are certain – the SEC will finish with 6 10 win teams, 9 out of 14 teams being bowl eligible, and that there will be an SEC representative in the BCS national championship […]

Hot Read – LSU 20, Arkansas 13

Well, that's over. My…ahem, familiar refrain…throughout the game was that I hate it. I hate this game nearly every single year? Why? Same reason why the Ole Miss game is usually more interesting than it should be. Game's a rivalry to the opponent, not to the Tigers. LSU looked like they wanted to be in […]

Big Ten Reignites Conference Realignment

Jim Delany has gone and done it. With the addition of Maryland today, the Big Ten commissioner has assaulted and penetrated what was perceived to be an impregnable $50 million ACC buyout. The addition of the Terps, and the expected announcement of Rutgers defection to the Big Ten from the Big East tomorrow, has shattered […]

Hot Read: Sleeping to the win

Tell me if you’ve heard this about an LSU-Ole Miss game. Ole Miss comes out fired up, starts throwing punches, and LSU never really kicks it into gear but does enough to get the job done. When LSU came out the second half and got the quick turnover, but still had to settle for a […]

The Arrival of Zach Mettenberger

Three weeks ago, LSU’s offense essentially resembled the same unit that had taken the field under Les Miles since 2009. That is, a strong rushing attack with a passing game who’s calling card was its ability to ruin a sound offensive gameplan. Zach Mettenberger’s quarterback rating in the month of October was 85.01 and he […]

Joke’s Over – Who Replaces Joker Phillips at Kentucky?

The joke's over at Kentucky. After being out-coached and having his team out-played in all but one game this season, Big Blue ousted Joker Phillips as head coach following a 40-0 embarrassment at the hands of Vanderbilt. One of the least desirable coaching spots in the SEC is now up for grabs, however, just because […]

Texas A&M Thoughts; Slant Routes

LSU was up against a pretty tough battle on Saturday in College Station.  First, the Tigers were coming off an emotional, hard fought win the previous week against South Carolina.  Combined with the early kickoff, it screamed "let down game".   Then, you had the reality that the 20th ranked Aggies have a pretty good […]

SNS Top 25 – Week 7

More movers and shakers this week in the SNS Top 25. The Ol' Ball Coach was another victim of playing Saturday night in Death Valley as the LSU offense awoke out of its' slumber. The revamped offensive line held the potent South Carolina defensive line at bay while the Tiger's running back by committee just […]
