GAME THREAD: NCAA Tournament East Regional Second Round- No. 3 LSU vs. No 6 Maryland, 11:10 A.M., CBS

Tigers try to advance to the tournament’s second weekend against the Terrapins After trying their best to squander a stellar first half against Yale in the NCAA tournament’s opening round, the Tigers (27-6) are back on the floor looking to make their first Sweet 16 since 2006 against Maryland (23-10). LSU and Maryland is the opening game of the Round of 32 and the winner advances to the East Regional semifinals in Washington D.C.

LSU Gym Enters the SEC Championships as the Favorites

LSU Gym Enters the SEC Championships as the Favorites

In an up and down season, the roller coaster is currently going up What a difference a month makes. A month ago, the season seemed lost. OK, maybe not lost, as that is a bit harsh, but it didn’t seem like this LSU gymnastics squad was going to compete for titles. Hey, not every team is a championship team. On February 8, LSU lost to Kentucky. They didn’t just lose, the Tigers got absolutely destroyed, 197.150-196.025. The loss dropped LSU to 3-3 overall and 1-3 in the hyper competitive SEC. And LSU simply doesn’t score under 197, much less flirt with dropping a score below 196. LSU...

Poseur Renounces His Childhood Team

Poseur Renounces His Childhood Team

Maryland is dead to me. For the weekend, at least I grew up in Maryland. I still say “hon” too much in regular conversation, keep a bucket of Old Bay in my pantry, prefer Tastykakes to Little Debbie, and can eat my body weight in crab. Like all Marylanders, I own a disturbing amount of merchandise with the Maryland flag on it, have Utz potato chips shipped to my house, and own the Homicide: Life on the Streets box set. My parents were both LSU alumni, so they properly brainwashed their children in all of the ways of the Tigers, but that was mainly about football. Growing up outside...

GAME RECAP: No. 3 LSU 79, No. 14 Yale 74

Tigers get up big early, hold on to beat Yale in NCAA opening round For the first time since 2009, LSU will be advancing in the NCAA Tournament. The Tigers got out of the NCAA tournament’s opening round with a close 79-74 win over the 14th seeded Yale Bulldogs Thursday afternoon in Jacksonville. The third-seeded Tigers never trailed Yale but the two halves couldn’t have been more different for LSU. LSU cruised to a 45-29 first half lead thanks to punishing Yale in the interior. The Tigers nearly had as many points in the paint, 24, as Yale did total points, 29, in the first half. The...

Painting the Picture of What LSU Might Look Like: Part 1

Joe Brady is here; let’s look at what he might be bringing. This is the first part in a series on what new offensive coordinator Joe Brady could bring from the Saints to the LSU offense: Part 1, “What can we learn from the Mormons?” One of the frustrating aspects of LSU’s offense during the 2018 season was the under utilization of quarterback Joe Burrow in the run game. As the dust settled near the end of the season, it turned out the staff didn’t want Burrow running the football because, secretly, Myles Brennan was nursing an injury for a chunk of the year and the team didn’t...

Sanchez walk-off secures series win against Florida

Tigers bats come through against Gators In what could turn out to be the best SEC conference win of the season, the No. 7 Tigers took the weekend series from the No. 8 Gators, over three intense games. The series win marks the first time the Tigers have won a series against Florida in Baton Rouge since 2007 and just the second time Beth Torina has won a series against her alma mater as Tiger head coach. Monday’s win also gave Torina her 100th career win against SEC opponents. The highlight of the series came in the rubber game, with Amanda Sanchez capping off a come from behind win with a...

LSU Looks Good, But Can’t Look Ahead

LSU Looks Good, But Can’t Look Ahead

To make a deep run, LSU must first beat a dangerous Yale squad Lost in all of the Will Wade mess is the fact LSU is a damn strong basketball team which won the SEC regular season title and profiles well for a team that can do some real damage in the tournament. Since losing to Houston on December 12, LSU has gone 19-3 with seven wins over teams in the KenPom top 50. Aside from a seeming inability to beat Florida, LSU has just about everything you could want in a tournament team: a great ballhandler who can control the end of games, a legit eight-man rotation giving the coach matchup...

LSU Completes Sweep of Kentucky, 7-2

LSU Completes Sweep of Kentucky, 7-2

Tigers play complete game for third win in two days. LSU ended the opening weekend of SEC play on a high note by completing the sweep of Kentucky with a 7-2 victory Sunday. Eric Walker contributed his best start since his return from Tommy John surgery, throwing 4.1 innings where he only allowed one run on three hits and struck out five while issuing no walks. Head coach Paul Mainieri pulled him in the fifth inning after he allowed back to back doubles, but that was a move born out of the fact that he had a full bullpen to work with after just using four pitchers Saturday. Walker and...

LSU defeats Kentucky 2-1 in 12 innings and then 16-4 in game two LSU took both games of their doubleheader against Kentucky Saturday to take the series win on SEC opening weekend.
