JUCO Prospect Ali Gaye Commits

JUCO Prospect Ali Gaye Commits

Tigers land junior college defensive end prospect. Recruiting is going gang busters in Baton Rouge and the staff already secured a pair of booms in the defensive backfield week and weekend, pulling in-state stud Major Burns and then going back up the Northeast Corridor to land Jordan Toles. Sunday morning brought on the addition of at least one JUCO talent — defensive end Ali Gaye. His path to LSU has been a bit windy. He inked with Washington out of high school but failed to academically qualify. After a year at Arizona Western, he’s now at Garden City CC in Kansas and suddenly...

Fontenot’s Heroics Not Enough, FSU Defeats LSU 5-4

Fontenot’s Heroics Not Enough, FSU Defeats LSU 5-4

LSU’s offense can’t back Devin Fontenot and the Tigers’ season ends on a bitter note. As soon as it was officially over, Paul Mainieri ran out to the pitcher’s mound. There knelt Devin Fontenot, his head in his hands. Mainieri had to let him know it wasn’t his fault. Quite the opposite. Devin Fontenot gave the performance of a lifetime, throwing 6.1 innings of relief where he allowed a single run on two hits and two walks while striking out 11. He walked into a game that LSU trailed 4-2 and was the pitcher when they tied it in the 8th. He was the pitcher when the game went into...

LSU’s Bullpen Blows Lead, Drops Game One To FSU 6-4

LSU’s Bullpen Blows Lead, Drops Game One To FSU 6-4

A heroic effort by Todd Peterson is washed away by walks LSU scored a run an inning for four straight frames and didn’t allow a hit until the 6th, but the bullpen couldn’t hold on and the Tigers fell victim to squandered opportunities in their 6-4 loss to Florida State in game one of the Baton Rouge Super Regional. After Cole Henry was pulled after two innings and 41 pitches with arm soreness, Todd Peterson stepped in and put forth a heroic effort in what may be his last outing in the box. Peterson threw 4.1 innings in relief where he allowed two runs (all earned) on three hits and...

Safety Jordan Toles Commits to LSU

Safety Jordan Toles Commits to LSU

Tigers land another prospect from the mid-Atlantic region in the four-star safety. LSU’s national recruiting footprint set down in the DMV area again today with Baltimore safety Jordan Toles announcing his commitment on his official visit this weekend. Toles is a 6-3, 190-pound defensive back out of Baltimore’s St. Francis Academy, where he’s a teammate of fellow commit Demon Clowney. Interestingly, Toles also has a scholarship offer from Will Wade in basketball as a guard. He’s a four-star prospect in the 247 composite, with Ohio State and Maryland considered his other main...

Projecting LSU’s 2019 Depth Chart

Projecting LSU’s 2019 Depth Chart

Thinking forward now that the freshmen have reported. Now that nearly all of LSU’s freshmen have reported, and the first major question mark — defensive back Maurice Hampton and the MLB Draft — has been answered. So for discussion’s sake, here’s a first look at what LSU’s depth chart projects to before the height of Summer workouts and training camp begins. Seven returning starters, and that number could easily be considered higher — Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Ja’Marr Chase both saw enough snaps to be considered starters last year. And players like Adrian Magee, Chasen...

Sneaky Good 58: Rebooted, Recharged, Re-Something

An honest to God expert opines! Oh my God, two episodes in two weeks! We are on a roll! We’ve got a new producer (say hi to Chris!) and a new guest host (Seth Galina, who gets very testy if you call him a French Canadian). We break down the mysteries of the LSU offense and what to expect in 2019 from Joe Burrow and crew. Maybe we talk a little LSU baseball and why in the hell does LSU have so many guys named Hilliard over the years. Shout out to Dalton. You rule, man. I also maybe unintentionally place a curse on the team. Just as a fair warning. Get you pitchforks ready. It’s on...

Tigers to watch for in the 2019 MLB Draft

Tigers to watch for in the 2019 MLB Draft

The MLB draft usually takes it’s toll on the LSU roster and recruiting class. This year is no different. We’re not even 24 hours removed LSU’s Regional championship over Southern Miss, but the MLB draft seldom ever cares about the college baseball it pillages from. The first two rounds will be held Monday night starting at 5:00 CST. The draft will be broadcast on MLB Network. As usual, there are some LSU players and targets expected to go. Shortstop Josh Smith is the only current Tiger expected to go today, projected to go early in the second round. Smith ended the regional on a...

The Tigers gave up a 3-1 lead in the top of the fifth, but came back with a three spot in the bottom of the seventh to regain the lead and win their third game in as many days. “That game tonight, as well as last night, was a total grind for our guys,” Maineri said. “In all honesty, I thought the game would be a little bit easier today. I don’t know if that’s the...

LSU Advances To Championship Sunday With 8-4 Victory Over USM

Tigers refused to be shut down with late-game surge. LSU moved into the proverbial catbird seat after their 8-4 victory over Southern Miss Saturday night. The Tigers gave up a four-run lead on one swing of the bat in the seventh inning, but promptly took the lead back with a three-run eighth. LSU starter Cole Henry shined bright in an abbreviated outing, allowing the Tigers some room to operate out the gate. Henry went five innings where he allowed no runs on two hits while walking three and striking out six. “Cole Henry clearly shows you why in my opinion he’s going be, if not...

Recruiting: LSU Hosting Camps this Weekend

Get the tents and s’mores ready: it’s camp season. After a busy April that saw five new Tigers announce their commits, a recruiting lull descended upon Baton Rouge to slow things up. Offensive lineman Marlon Martinez wound up being the only commit in May, making this weekend the perfect opportunity to pick up some steam on the recruiting front with the beginning of the camp sessions on the LSU campus. The offensive and defensive linemen get things under way, along with kickers, on Saturday before the skill position camp starts up the following day. Big Visitors in the...

Baseball Can Rewrite the Script

Baseball Can Rewrite the Script

The regular season was a disappointment... or was it just a learning experience? What is past is prologue. This isn’t the year LSU baseball was expecting. The Tigers came into the season with high hopes and a preseason #1 ranking. The regular season ended with LSU fighting for a regional host slot. Let’s step back for a second and appreciate the fact that “on the bubble to host a regional” is what passes for a disappointing year around these parts. There are a lot worse fates, and you can usually tell how strong a program is by what they consider to be disappointments. You have to...
