South Carolina Game Thoughts

Now, that's more like it.  It was not perfect by any means, but LSU played a lot like the team we were all expecting to see in 2012.  The most obvious and important take away from the game is that LSU re-established its identity on offense as a power running team.   LSU ran for […]

Florida Game Hangover

  I can tell you….I'm just so excited to be putting together thoughts about this game.     Big Picture What is pretty clear at this point is that this team is not good offensively.  At least not right now.  Not even close.  The team wasn't just "sleep walking" through the Auburn and Towson games.  Those […]

SNS Top 25 – Week 6

If you are a red-blooded American man (or woman), yesterday was a great day for college football (unless you're a fan of LSU, Florida State, or Georgia). Saturday's in the fall remains unpredictably insane as it didn't take long for history to repeat itself as three of the Top 5 teams in the country lost […]

Johnny Jones On A Roll

LSU Basketball Coach Johnny Jones has hit the ground running since he was named LSU's coach in April.  His first order of business was to beat the bushes and find some capable players for next year's basketball team.   Jones held onto the commitment of star shooting guard Malik Morgan and then added two more guards […]

Towson Thoughts: Yikes…

Saturday, LSU put together one of the least inspiring efforts I have seen in Tiger Stadium in a very long time.  I'm not one to overreact on this site, whether good or bad, but I can honestly say that LSU's performance against Towson was total horse shit.  I'm not sure I have ever been angrier […]

Auburn Game Thoughts, Slant Routes

LSU went into Auburn and earned a victory, and that's only the second time since 1998 that we've been able to say that.  However, the general feeling among Tiger fans right now is one of "Uh-oh!" and that's certainly understandable considering the circumstances.   I'm certainly concerned, but after watching the game a second time, […]

Slant Routes – Idaho

Freak stuffs a 4th and 1 attempt LSU's game against Idaho resembled their first game against North Texas.  The Tigers came firing out of the gates and jumped to a 14-0 lead.  Then, the team seemed to take the foot off the gas a bit and lost some focus.  Idaho responded with an interception near […]

Recruiting: The Final Five?

Will Priest Willis come from AZ to be a part of "DB U"? LSU has been stuck on 22 commitments for a while now, and it seems pretty clear that they're targeting only a select few for those final few spots.  If LSU closes the way they'd like to, and the way I think they […]

Slant Routes – Washington

Kevin Minter Well now, that feels better doesn’t it?   A week ago, we saw a ho-hum performance  against North Texas where LSU’s team looked like it was merely going through the motions for the majority of the game.  We were left with a lot of questions and even a few concerns.   The season […]

North Texas Slant Routes

LSU rolled to a relatively easy and mostly uninspiring 41-14 win over North Texas on Saturday night.  Watching the game in Tiger Stadium, I was aggravated for most of the game.   I felt that the team played sloppy and lacked emotion.   However, a look at the stat sheet shows a pretty dominating performance, […]

Week 1 Winners and Losers

The main course of college football’s week one finally arrived after a long, lousy off-season that saw one of the most historic programs become shaken down to its foundation and one of the most prolific, exciting, and flamboyant players on one of the most prominent teams in the country was booted off the team. If […]

Podcast: LSU Preview with Crystal Ball Run

I was fortunate to sit down with Allen Kenney of the Crystal Ball Run to talk a little LSU Football earlier this week.  The Crystal Ball Run is Bloguin’s primary College Football blog, and it has really taken off recently.  It’s a VERY well done site and jam packed with content and quality writing every […]

Season Preview with College Football Zealots

My Bloguin friends over at College Football Zealots asked me to give some thoughts on LSU’s upcoming season for their series of season previews they’re putting together.  They’ve got LSU as their pre-season #3 team in the nation.  We talk about the Honey Badger’s absence, Zach Mettenberger, and just about everything else before I give […]

SNS Top 21 – LA State Rankings Pre-Season

Tre’Davious White – The State’s Top Player? Now that the spring evaluation and summer camp circuit is complete, it was time to revise my recruiting rankings for the State of Louisiana.   A number of guys moved around, and we have three new players to the list that weren’t on there in March for the […]

SNS Roundtable: Previewing The LSU Defense

It’s time for the LSU Defense to eat again Much like we did for the offense, we decided to take a roundtable discussion approach to previewing LSU’s defense this year.  We’ve got the same panel together again: Kris Brauner (@snslant) – That’s me, I run this siteJordan Grove (@LASportsDude) – Contributor here at SNSChandler Rome […]
