LSU Football 13: Secondary

The glamour boys. La'Ron Landry, Patrick Peterson, Morris Claiborne, Tyrann Mathieu. LSU might put more star defensive linemen in the NFL, but the position that gets all the press is defensive back.

LSU Football 13: Linebackers

Never has there been a deeper, more talented crop of linebackers for LSU to choose from in the past decade of Tiger football. The strength comes in the depth, solid depth, that the Tigers have.

LSU Football 13: Defensive Line

We go from one position of experience youth, the offensive line, to another that's even more of a mixed unit. The LSU defense, which saw massive attrition that's been well chronicled, was hit hardest at the defensive line. LSU will replace most of the two-deep from a year ago with a unit that is ripe […]

LSU Football 13: Offensive Line

The 2013 LSU offensive line will be a strength. The 2013 LSU offensive line will be a weakness. The 2013 LSU offensive line has experience. The 2013 LSU offensive line lacks experience.

LSU Football 13: Backs & Receivers

Last year's offense could almost be summed up in the play of it's wide receivers. While an immensely talented group, paced by deep-threat Odell Beckham, Jr. and Mr. Glue Jarvis Landry, the unit was not without frequent drops and mistakes. OBJ in particular seemed to struggle through a sophomore slump, pressing too much after a […]

LSU Football 13: The Quarterbacks

2013 will be the first time in seemingly forever that LSU has a hard and fast incumbent at the starting quarterback position. Zach Mettenberger arrived from JUCO last year and was starter from day one. His first year on campus had plenty of ups and downs, but generally he kept an upward trajectory throughout the […]

Quick Slant: Les Miles did not let the team vote Hill back

Yes, the players voted and voted to allow him back on the team. I've seen national outlets now bury Miles for hiding behind his team, for letting players make his decisions, etc. Do these people think Les Miles would have let the team vote to allow Hill back on if he hadn't already come to […]

What’s next for Jeremy Hill?

Monday afternon Jeremy Hill & his attorney met with his presiding judge who extended his probation two years, keeping intact the 9pm to 6am curfew, with allowances for football activities. That immediately opened the floor to Les Miles, whom after closing practice for what is now obvious reasons, reinstated Hill to the team after a […]

Lamin Barrow gets coveted #18

In a tradition now dating back 10 years to 2003, players have selected Lamin Barrow to wear the #18 jersey for the Tigers. Not only was he already going to be counted on to anchor a defense that will have a good number of fresh faces, he'll now be counted on to be a total […]

Manziel will add even more to the refreshed LSU-Texas A&M rivalry

If last season was the appetizer, this year is the main course.     After reigniting a regular season rivalry that lay dormant for 15 years, LSU managed a thrilling 24-19 victory over Texas A&M last year in a game that welcomed the Aggies into the SEC.    However, when the Tigers host the Aggies […]

The media also picked Alabama & Georgia to meet in Atlanta for the SEC Championship. Follow past the jump […]

Les Miles & Discipline

Les Miles is not a stranger to discipline. Comparing him to Urban Meyer and others is an unfair comparison. While the Aaron Hernandez situation is, and should be, unrelated to his time at Florida, there's a reason why Meyer got his reputation. It was almost a yearly prize being fought over between Florida and Georgia […]

Looking at LSU’s current top commits

The Tigers are off to another hot start on the recruiting trail already with 11 commitments, seven of them 4-stars. If anything, the most astounding news is that only 3 of the 7 4-stars are from Louisiana. With Louisiana putting out an excellent crop for 2014, those uncommitted prospects in state will surely bolster LSU's […]

LSU offense and defense fail, Tigers fall to UCLA

So things didn't exactly go as planned Sunday night in Omaha. LSU fell 2-1 to the UCLA Bruins thanks to uncharacteristic defensive miscues and an offense that couldn't put a runner in scoring position in the latter innings. Even Aaron Nola wasn't lights out, but he didn't allow an earned run, again. More past the […]
