Quarterback Comparison: LSU vs. Vanderbilt

Quarterback Comparison: LSU vs. Vanderbilt

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports The LSU Tigers (3-0) look to record their fourth consecutive win of the season as they travel to Nashville to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores (0-2) in Vanderbilt Stadium in their first meeting since 2010. The Commodores have put two quarterbacks in over the course of their past two games, and it’s likely we’ll see more of the same from the team on Saturday. That type of rotation isn’t necessary for LSU, who has one of the nation’s best quarterbacks in Joe Burrow. Here’s a look at how the three stack up. Joe Burrow Derick E....

Tiger Tracklist: Vanderbilt

Photo by Marianna Massey/ Light it up, light it up, light it up. The rate of our ascension makes statisticians feel sickly. Accountants, they get snippy, they never counted so quickly. We’re past the three week mark in the season and it’s fair to say that so far, the season has been a rousing success. The Tigers are 3-0 behind a revamped and effective offense and a defense that’s behind the norm, but still top tier. Joe Burrow is a legitimate Heisman candidate and Grant Delpit is probably a better player overall. LSU is undefeated and Texas fans are still salty about it. All is...

When It Is And Is Not Appropriate To Whistle

When It Is And Is Not Appropriate To Whistle

Definitely not at anything televised, that’s for sure. It’s been quite awhile since LSU played Vanderbilt in football. LSU fans have to think hard to remember the last time the Tigers faced the Commodores on the gridiron, which was in 2010. In the nine years between football matchups, the two teams have faced off in some epic baseball matchups. An 11-inning thriller in the 2013 SEC Championship Game, a wild comeback that featured five runs across two innings in 2016, and a 1-0 pitcher’s duel in a rubber match in 2018. Their most recent matchup was not one of these classics....

Playin’ “Nice” with Anchor of Gold

Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports Answering the most important questions you have about LSU’s next opponent. Let’s be real, LSU is going to beat Vanderbilt on Saturday. Rather than spend time trying to analyze Vandy’s defense or predict how many passing yards Joe Burrow will have, we asked Tom Stephenson of Anchor of Gold the real questions LSU fans want answered. 1. The most important question all LSU fans, especially those making the trip, are wondering: will there be any whistlers at this game? The Whistlers are some of Vanderbilt’s most loyal fans, and I believe they’re season...

The Saturday Night Film Review: LSU vs. Northwestern State

The Saturday Night Film Review: LSU vs. Northwestern State

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports The LSU offense goes to the lab. Ho hum. Just another classic LSU Air Raid performance versus an inferior opponent. Only 488 yards passing in 1 football game. What is this? 2007. If they don’t go over 500 yards against Vanderbilt I’m rioting. It will take a while to get used to this. Through three games, LSU has sliced opposing pass defenses to the tune of 436 yards per game on an incredible 81 percent pass completion rate. It would have taken Nick Fitzgerald 195 pass attempts in last years game in Baton Rouge to get to that many yards. Joe...

Playing Nice: Anchor Of Gold

The Tigers head to Nashville this weekend for (thanks to the SEC’s horribly broken scheduling policies) the first and last time in decades. To get an informed preview of those pesky Commodores, Zach talked to ATVS regular VandyTigerPhD from our SB Nation friends at Anchor Of Gold DISCLAIMER: AoG policy strictly states that all writing for AoG has a three-drink minimum. As ATVS commentariat already knows, nothing VandyTiger says should be taken seriously. Ever. 1) Much has been made about the LSU defense maybe not quite being up to its usual standards. Could Vanderbilt get their share of...

LSU 65, Northwestern State 14: Postgame Review

LSU 65, Northwestern State 14: Postgame Review

Photo by Jonathan Bachman/ It wasn’t orderly, but it was the devouring of a cupcake nonetheless. It’s hard to complain too much about a 65-14 win where LSU very much pull away from the over-matched Northwestern State and really never looked back. After the half. But the win still feels a little incomplete, as much as I hate to say that. Maybe there was a degree of emotional let-down, but the Tigers played with this cupcake a little bit. The devouring was still orderly, but the order was a bit off. Thinking back to what I wrote on Friday: The goals for this game are: Keep players...

Eating With Ed, Week 4: Vanderbilt

Photo by Jonathan Bachman/ SEC play is finally here for the LSU Tigers (3-0) after their 65-14 victory over Northwestern State on Saturday. But ahead of the weekend’s contest against the Vanderbilt Commodores (0-2), there is some cleaning up to do. The Tigers got off to an incredibly slow start against the Demons, holding just a 10-point lead before surging ahead in the second half. “When we looked at the film, we didn’t play as good in some spots that we wanted to, especially on the offensive line and the defensive line,” Orgeron said. “Some spots we’ve got to get fixed, and...

Joe Burrow: Offense Still Has Room For Improvement, Will Stay Dominant On The Pass

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports The LSU Tigers put another dominant win in the books as they topped the Northwestern State Demons, 65-14 on Saturday night in Tiger Stadium, Quarterback Joe Burrow made it clear earlier on in the offseason that he thought LSU could put up 40-60 points per game in 2019 under the guidance of passing game coordinator Joe Brady and a fast-paced offense. Such has held true through the first three weeks of the season. Despite the fact his offense put up 65 points on Northwestern State on Saturday night, Burrow still sees plenty of room for improvement —...

Well, that happened. In case you just woke up from a coma and your first action was to log on to And The Valley Shook! to see what you missed in LSU football, the Tigers went to Austin, Texas and beat the Longhorns 35-38. Quarterback Joe Burrow went 31-37 for 471 yards and four touchdowns. Three LSU receivers had over 100 receiving yards. In what used to be an obvious clock...
