LSU / SEC Week 13 Picks

For Les Miles’ sake, I really hope there’s no drama in the LSU / Arkansas game Saturday night. No drama in the sense that Arkansas wins by 30 wouldn’t be a good thing, but a nice, uneventful last few minutes would be a good thing for the coach. I really don’t know what I expect [...]

I have to defend Les Miles on something

LSU head coach Les Miles has come under a lot of scrutiny in the past three days because of his inexplicable mismanagement of the final minute in LSU’s loss to Ole Miss Saturday. And that scrutiny is well-deserved. Miles has a history of questionable and poor game management during his tenure at LSU. It’s infuriated [...]

LSU’s Nike Pro Combat uniforms – the full abomination

Nike is set to unveil the next worst moment in LSU football history today. And though they can’t top Les Miles’ performance in the last minute of the Ole Miss game, they come sort of close. I give you the LSU Nike Pro Combat uniform in all its abominable glory: So let’s break this ugly [...]

LSU / Ole Miss: The Judgment

If Les Miles could change the outcome of one play in LSU’s loss to Ole Miss, it might be his Tigers’ onside kick in the final minute. If Dexter McCluster grabs the ball instead of jumping away from it, Leslie would only be facing questions about his team’s performance from late in the second quarter [...]

More details on the LSU Pro Combat Nike uniforms

– Update: The LSU Nike uniforms in their full abominable glory. – The super-marketeers of Nike are still waiting until Monday to officially unveil the abomination of a “Pro Combat” special uniform they’ll inflict upon Tiger fans who attend the Arkansas game next weekend, but they continue to drop clues in their source code. The [...]

LSU / SEC Week 12 Picks

What’s the difference between the 2008 LSU Tigers and the 2009 LSU Tigers? Georgia sucks this year. Well, it’s not quite that simple, but after suffering through a very poor LSU patsy win last Saturday, this season is feeling a lot like 2008 – except that Georgia sucks. Last year, Georgia didn’t suck and LSU [...]

LSU / SEC Week 11 Recap

I’ve not been in much of a hurry to recap LSU’s win over La. Tech because there’s really not a lot to say. Amazingly poor offensive performance – only 3-7 New Mexico State has put up fewer yards against Tech than the Tigers (Nicholls St. managed to put up 28 more yards than LSU) – [...]

LSU / SEC Week 11 Picks

After its week in the spotlight, LSU takes a backseat to the real action in the SEC this week. There’s really not much that needs to be said about playing La. Tech, except that answers to the health of Jordan Jefferson and Charles Scott’s backups will be answered. LSU 45 – 13 Elsewhere in the [...]

It’s official: Nike screwing with LSU uniforms

Well, it looks like my beloved LSU Tigers are about to be caught up in the big-money marketing push of Nike and roll out “futuristic” uniforms for the Arkansas game Nov. 28. —- UPDATE 3: The LSU Nike uniforms in their full abominable glory. UPDATE 2: More details on the uniform design from Nike. UPDATE [...]

Controversy sells newspapers

Pretty amazing, even for their standards. The Advocate (the Baton Rouge daily, not the national gay newspaper) harps all over the interception denied Patrick Peterson in its post-game coverage of LSU / Alabama today but had not a word – literally, not a single word – about the other blown opportunity LSU had to get [...]
