And Then There Were… Fewer

LSU – despite being short their starting tailback and one of their best defensive players – took care of business against Auburn, easily winning 45-10. It was the most lopsided victory in the history of the series between these two teams, which goes back over 40 games. Alabama struggled early against Tennessee. It’s easy to […]

Can LSU Finish What They Started?

LSU started out on top of the first BCS poll of the season. I hope they get to finish what they started. There have been plenty of news notes about how the #1 team in the initial poll has been a tough spot. Most years the initial #1 team doesn’t even make it to the […]

LSU Takes Care Of Undermanned Florida

I got home today in time to watch the LSU game. I still prefer to see the Tigers in their natural habitat, that being night games at Death Valley, but the game today was earlier. No matter, if not for one play where the LSU defensive back fell down they would have held Florida to […]

LSU Moves Up to Number One Ranking

Based on the strength of their early season resume (3 road victories over ranked teams, albeit one on a neutral site) LSU is the new top cat on the AP poll this week. Here’s an easy prediction: they won’t stay there. 🙂 LSU has a lot of tough games ahead, and they’re sure to lose […]

Defense Rules For LSU and Oklahoma

LSU had a short week and a road game at Mississippi State, but their defense rose to the challenge. The Tigers won with field goals playing a major part of the game. Jarrett Lee was exceptional, or at least his line was. 21 out of 27 for 213 yards, a 77.8% completion percentage, one touchdown […]

LSU / Alabama Swap Spots

It didn’t really matter, but LSU and Alabama once again swapped spots between #2 and #3. They play each other in a few weeks which will settle which team should come out on top. Alabama moved up on the strength of their win over ranked Penn State while LSU beat up on a weaker team, […]

One Down, More To Go

LSU managed to take one from the Ducks this weekend, but it wasn’t pretty. The Tigers don’t seem to have solved all of their problems on offense, although they were good enough to keep up with the Ducks in the first half. Of course that was primarily due to the awesome effort turned in by […]

National Champions All Over The Place!

LSU Season Overview This is one of my favorite times of the year, when every one is 0-0 and sports prognosticators all over the country are talking up their favorites for the NCAA college football championship. My LSU Tigers even got a couple of mentions as potential champions and started the year at #1 in […]

We Have An Offense? Who Knew… LSU Takes Down ‘Bama 24-21

Wow. Just. Wow. After a season of incompetence, where did LSU come up with an offense? Jefferson looked great today, and when he had to play, even Lee made some nice throws. The CBS crew denoted both LSU quarterbacks as “player of the game” for their performance today, and they deserved it. LSU’s offense racked […]
