Vandy Wins The “Could Of” Battle But Loses The Game…

The SEC kicked off football with an exciting game last night as South Carolina traveled to Tennessee to take on Vandy. The game went back and forth with a ton of exciting plays as Marcus Lattimore fumbled on his first carry, but Vandy gave the ball back on an interception soon after. USC went ahead [...]

Honey Badger Dug Himself Into A Hole…

Seems that Tyrann Mathieu will not be suiting up for the LSU Tigers this coming season. For reasons as yet unspecified, Les Miles has released him from the team, and he will no doubt be taking his talents to some other school. From what I’ve read he can’t transfer to another division I school and [...]

Bolden Stats Not Impressive…

Bolden’s statistics are not that impressive. I would prefer to have a transfer with more passing skills. It seems that Bolden’s numbers dropped in the second year of his career, rather than progressing. Maybe he’ll do fine, or maybe he’ll turn out to be another “game manager” which isn’t really what I’m hoping for this [...]

Off Season Acquisition?

Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden is transferring to LSU. I haven’t had time to look up his stats yet, so I don’t know what sort of talent he brings to Baton Rouge. However he has at least been a starter, which is something the rest of the current quarterbacks cannot say.

A reference to the less than savory pictures rumored to have been sent by [...]

That Was Ugly

Did LSU show up to play last night, or did some other team sneak into town wearing purple and gold uniforms?
Frankly, I’m speechless. I turned off the game in the 3rd quarter.

LSU Beats… Everybody?

Last night West Virginia – a team LSU beat on their home field earlier this year – destroyed Clemson in the Orange Bowl. Earlier Oregon beat Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl. Arkansas is probably favored to beat Kansas State in the Cotton Bowl, and of course LSU has already defeated Alabama once this season. If [...]

Finally Someone To Beat The SEC?

I think this is a great quote from Stewart Mandel, columnist for Sports Illustrated, talking about the SEC versus SEC match-up in the BCS championship game:
The game hasn’t even been played and the SEC has already won its sixth straight national title. Ah, but an SEC team will also lose a BCS title game, staining [...]

It Was The Worst of Halves, It Was The Best of Halves

I should start off this post right away with an apology to LSU fans everywhere. You see, it was my fault that the Tigers looked so incredibly inept on offense for the entire first half of the SEC title game yesterday. I watched the game on TV, like millions of others, and like a large [...]
