LSU vs. Iowa Outback Bowl Stat Check

On January 1st, LSU will take the field against the Iowa Hawkeyes, playing them for the first time since the 2004 Capital One Bowl. We know a lot about the Tigers, but how do they stack up against Iowa in a quick look at their statistics? Follow past the jump for an infographic and some […]

Outback Bowl the perfect destination for LSU…for recruiting

  This season, LSU went to the bowl game they, really, deserved to go to. Last year we made much of how the Tigers fell to the Chick-Fil-A, but the Outback Bowl is a right and just reward for the Tigers' season. What makes it perfect, though, is what happens in the same city of […]

Quick Slant: LSU vs. Iowa Outback Bowl

There will be no gnashing of teeth over LSU falling down the SEC bowl pecking order this year. LSU was selected by the Outback Bowl in Tampa, following Alabama & Auburn going to the BCS and South Carolina going to the Capital One Bowl while the Cotton selected Missouri. Usually, the Cotton gets a Western […]

Zach Mettenberger reportedly has torn ACL, will miss bowl game

Via ESPN report, Zach Mettenberger has torn his ACL and will miss the bowl game, thus ending his career at LSU. LSU has not verified the report yet, but most likely they will confirm this today. Other sources have rumbled about a torn ACL, as well. What a sad & unfortunate turn of events for […]

Ode to Odell Beckham Jr. & Jarvis Landry

3,234. That's how many total yards the best receiving duo LSU has ever seen has amassed this season. The 2,175 all-purpose yards by Odell Beckham Jr. is already a school record, breaking the record held by Domanick Davis set earlier this century. Only two other times in SEC history has one team had two 1,000 […]

Beginnings of renewed Texas A&M-LSU rivalry all Tigers

  Johnny Manziel has won a Heisman trophy. If you had only seen Manziel play against LSU these two years, you'd wonder how many people he paid off for the honor. In a domination similar to last year, the Tigers reduced Manziel to mortal cinders. The LSU defense deserves every game ball. They held the […]

Time to Get Excited for Hoops

Basketball season. For the past 6 years, it's been that lost period between a football fixation and the spring rites of baseball. The arrival of Johnny Jones last year might have begun to put an end to our winter lamentations. After a phenomenal recruiting class last year headlined by consensus top-10 player Jarell Martin, coach […]

LSU vs. Alabama: Link Lagniappe

Due to some other circumstances, I won't be able to do a full post before the tilt with the Tide. Instead, enjoy some links from around the blogosphere & nation to get you ready for this year's edition of Hate. Easy Call, Week 11: Oregon-Stanford, LSU-Alabama, crazy chicken nuggets [SBNation] Previewing the LSU Defense Part 1 Part […]

A New Tiger for LSU

2013 marks the return of everyone's favorite LSU Tiger, but in a cleaner, more modern form. The new Tiger was first seen in shots of the redesigned basketball court & has been rolled out to the men's basketball uniforms. So far, no word on it moving to other sports. Tiger Stadium still has the 1972 edition of […]

Where do we go from here?

In a seemingly one-way rivalry, LSU fell to the Rebels in Oxford Saturday night. A game in which the Rebels take very seriously, but LSU hasn't in at least 20 years. Maybe that should change. The depleted Rebels, notably Bo Wallace, played a perfect game. Wallace, who had success against LSU last year, continued that, […]

At the Midway Point

Here we are the midpoint of the college football season already with LSU more or less where we thought they'd be. The difference is how they got here. If you've watched LSU in recent years, you'll wonder who stole that program and replaced it with the current one. The Tigers have put in place their […]

Looking at LSU vs. Mississippi State

The No. 10 LSU Tigers, currently 2nd in their division behind Alabama, had a devastating loss against the Georgia Bulldogs last week. They are on the road again this week, facing more Bulldogs at Mississippi State. More past the jump.   Will they fare any better?  Mississippi State was off last weekend and is at […]

It’s not the end of the world, as we know it

On the contrary to R.E.M.'s legendary lyrics, this is not the end of the world for this LSU football team. Sure, a loss takes them out of the national spotlight and one spot outside of the top 10 for now, but there is still everything at stake for this team. Did LSU lose a chance […]

Even now, the Auburn game is the tone-setter

In the early years of the aughts, the LSU-Auburn game was the SEC West, and SEC at large some years, game to watch. Both Tigers were finding their strides and it seemed whoever won the battle would have a good or great year. A loss didn't mean a bad year, but it usually mean titles […]

Is that…is that…is that an offense?

By jove I think it is! Last year, we were promised a savior. A Mettensavior. A Mettsiah. OK, maybe that's too much, but that's essentially how Zach Mettenberger was received last year. After fumbling through most of the season last year, getting hot, then going ice cold in the bowl game, we realized the problem might be in the […]
