POSTGAME: #25 LSU 92, Georgia 82

The Tigers win their eighth straight behind Waters’ 26 points The #25 LSU Tigers extended their home win streak to 18 games Wednesday night after they knocked off the Georgia Bulldogs 92-82. The Bulldogs fall to 9-9 (1-5 SEC) while the Tigers improve to an impressive 15-3 (5-0) record. After an early pair of free throws, Georgia led the home team 8-2 until Tremont Waters decided to take matters into his own hands, scoring 7 of LSU’s first 13 points to tie the game up and end a Bulldog lead they would never regain. The Tigers went on a 14-0 run while the Bulldogs suffered a three minute...

Tigers try to push winning streak to eight against the Dawgs LSU is back on the court and back in the AP Top-25, as the newly minted 25th ranked Tigers take on the Georgia Bulldogs at 6:00 P.M. in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. The Tigers (14-3) have won their opening four conference games, and the last time the program achieved that feat they made the 2006 Final Four. LSU’s looking to push their overall winning streak to eight games; a win in the PMAC tonight would give them nine straight in conference play dating back to last year and 18 in a row at home, which would tie for the...

LSU Announces Spring Practice Schedule

LSU Announces Spring Practice Schedule

Tigers will return to the practice field March 7. What’s that saying about football never stopping? LSU announced the 2019 spring practice schedule today, with the first practice set for March 7 and the wrap-up spring game on April 6. The National L Club Spring Game will be set for 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 6, after experimenting with night games in recent years. It didn’t seem to make a particularly big impact on attendance, and I imagine TV was ultimately the driver of that decision. Although no announcement of coverage has been made yet. Overall, LSU will have 15 total practices,...

We Have A Problem

We Have A Problem

It’s time to talk about the state of officiating in this country. I never know how to begin columns like this. Partly because I never know if I should even write this type of column. I didn’t do it after the LSU-Texas A&M game, or the LSU-Bama game from 2014 or any of the long list — and regardless of your fandom, you have a list — of games that have been marred by notable, egregious failures of officiating. Nobody wants to be the “whiner,” right? “Well you just should’t let the game come down to officiating.” “Just make (insert other play) and it doesn’t...

POSTGAME: LSU 89, South Carolina 67

Tigers run Gamecocks out of the PMAC, improve to 4-0 in conference play For the second game in a row, the Tigers of LSU dismantled a conference opponent by scoring upwards of 80 points while holding the opposition in the 60s. With their 89-67 win over the South Carolina Gamecocks, LSU has won seven in a row and open SEC play at 4-0. The last time the Tigers got off to a 4-0 SEC start was 2006, which was LSU’s last appearance in the Final Four. The Tigers pounced on South Carolina early and never let the Gamecocks off the mat. The active hands from Tremont Waters, Skylar Mays and Emmitt...

LSU plays for an early chance at second in the conference tonight against the Gamecocks A sneaky pivotal game for LSU will be played tonight in the PMAC as the Tigers take on the Gamecocks of South Carolina. South Carolina (9-7, 4-0 SEC) don’t own the most sparkling record, but having won five in a row, including an overtime upset at home against Mississippi State, the Gamecocks are now one of the hottest teams in the conference. Carolina and LSU are each unbeaten in conference play, and a victory in the Deaf Dome will secure sole possession of second place in the conference, behind...

Lady Tigers Host No. 16 Kentucky

Lady Tigers Host No. 16 Kentucky

LSU looks to pick up its second win over a ranked conference opponent in the PMAC Conference play has been off to mixed results for the Lady Tigers of LSU. At 2-2, LSU has had its fair share of peaks and valleys in the rigorous SEC. The Tigers highest of highs was a 63-52 win over the then No. 21 Aggies, but they were unable to spring a second upset over a ranked opponent and was walloped by, coincidentally enough, the then No. 21 South Carolina Gamecocks 76-53. Mix in splitting a pair of road games with a loss in the conference opener to Georgia and a win over Ole Miss last Thursday and...

SEC and the NFL Draft

SEC and the NFL Draft

Keeping tabs on how other teams made out with draft defections. Now that the NFL’s deadline for draft declarations has passed, let’s take a look at how things fared. LSU, as we know, will lose All-Americans Greedy Williams and Devin White, plus nose tackle Ed Alexander. The former two made the right call and will almost certainly be top-15 picks or so. Alexander, probably not so, but he may not have had a truly good choice with his history of knee injuries. Most importantly, the program was able to hold on to juniors that appear to be right on the verge of breaking out — Breiden...

Recruiting: Should LSU Take a 2 for 1?

Recruiting: Should LSU Take a 2 for 1?

A star recruit has a condition for signing. Should LSU honor it? Our recruiting experts debate. Ishmael Sopsher has been a major LSU recruiting target going on three years now. He’s not quite to Leonard Fournette levels of hype, but definitely in line with guys like Cam Robinson and Rashard Lawrence. His status seems to constantly oscillate. In the years leading up to his senior season, most experts firmly believed he would wind up at LSU. Throughout his senior year, Alabama began to trend. And now as his signing approaches, LSU seems to be moving back into pole position. The reasoning?...

Pass Protection and Your Tigers

Here’s what you need to know! You’ve seen it more times than you care to remember. Joe Burrow drops back and he gets sacked. Danny Etling drops back and he gets sacked. Brandon Harris drops back and he gets sacked. For a program that talks about taking care of the football and staying away from negative plays, the amount of sacks Tiger quarterbacks take is an eye sore. LSU gets sacked a lot. For the past two years (2018, 2017) they’ve ranked in the 100s in sack rate allowed. The two prior seasons (2016, 2015) saw them place in the 50s but the year before that (2014) they were...

POSTGAME: LSU 94, Arkansas 88 (OT)

LSU wins first road game in 367 days Despite a late surge by the home team to force an overtime period, the LSU Tigers knocked off the Arkansas Razorbacks 94-88 to improve to 12-3 (2-0 Southeastern Conference). The Razorbacks have now lost four games in Bud Walton Arena and fall to a 10-5 (1-2) record. Though the Tigers led the game throughout the entirety of regulation, the two teams put on quite a show in the first half, shooting a combined 35-of-62 from the field. The Razorbacks kept pace with the Tigers in the last four minutes of the first half and cut the lead to a manageable 5 points...
