Better Know a Freshman: Way Too Early Impressions

Better Know a Freshman: Way Too Early Impressions

A look at some of the early freshmen contributors from the 2014 signing class. It's wayyyyy too early to make any final judgments on the 2014 signing class, but we've seen a slew of early contributors through the first three games, something I believe we all anticipated. The young faces on offense aren't particularly surprising, but it has been interesting to see the players who demand playing time on the defensive side of the ball, simply because they are so talented. Let's take a look back at some of my evaluations and see who I nailed early on. Early Returns Jamal Adams Here's what I...

LSU 31, ULM 0: Viewer's Guide to the Online Replay

Taking another look at the Tigers' second consecutive shutout. Well, another week, another cupcake devoured in relative order. LSU's offense wasn't up to snuff against ULM, but we'll get to that in a bit. The defense, however, only broke a 73-year-old record, pitching the first back-to-back shutouts at home since 1941. It also happens to be the first time since 1985 that LSU's shut out two opponents consecutively at all. Poseur outlined a couple of impressive numbers in his initial article: The final numbers speak to the defense's total annihilation: 93 yards 77 yards passing 16 yards...

Sports and Domestic Violence

Everyone is part of the problem, so let's be part of the solution instead. This has been a pretty horrible week for sports in general. We're all gritting our teeth and hoping to get to the end of it without any more horrific news coming down the wires. As a culture, we spend all year looking forward to that mythic four month time frame we call "football season". We put off weddings, organize schedules, and plan our lives around what we like to think is the best time of year. There's nothing like going over to your buddy's office and trash talking the Aggies or complaining about Nick...

Ten Thoughts: ULM

Am I the only one praying for a purple-on-camo uniform matchup? 1. FUN BELT FUN BELT FUN BELT FUN BELT. I love the chaotic brand of football the Sun Belt brings to the table. Second only to the MAC in terms of mid-major fun, it's always great to watch Sun Belt football. 2. One should be cautious enough to not get Sun Belted, however. It has happened to teams throughout this land, and no one wants to be one of those scalps. Given how LSU played a competent Sam Houston State team, I don't think this will be an issue. 3. And, to be honest, there's not a lot LSU should change from last week...

LSU vs. ULM: What to Watch For

Breaking down LSU’s week three matchup with the in-state giant killers. Week three already. WEEK THREE ALREADY???? STOP PASSING SO QUICKLY COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON. What to Watch For on Saturday More of the Same Todd Berry's carved out a pretty solid niche for himself at ULM. They've finished .500 or better the last two seasons, made the program's first bowl game in some indeterminate amount of time I'm too lazy to look up. What's more, he's built a program that's been good enough to beat a couple of power-five conference programs, and put some pretty big scares into others. Still funny?...

Playin' Nice: ULM

Playin' Nice: ULM

A.J. Devine of Underdog Dynasty gives us a little scoop on the Warhawks. 1.    ULM is off to a 2-0 start, including a nice home win over a Power-Five conference opponent in Wake Forest. How impressive have the Warhawks been, exactly? Well, if Todd Berry could combine the defensive play of the Wake Forest game with the offensive play from the Idaho game, he'd have a really impressive team, but they haven't put it all together quite yet. The offense was especially disappointing in the Wake game when they averaged just 4.1 yards per play against what should end up being a pretty bad...

TURN UP for Tiger Stadium's New Pregame Video

As seen this past weekend in that space between the team taking the field and players lining up for kickoff. The video itself does an amazing job of showing how the Main Large North Board works in conjunction with the smaller South Boards and the Ribbon Boards around the stadium turning a great pregame hype builder into an amazing stadium-wide presentation.

Upon Further Review: LSU vs. Sam Houston State

Taking a look at how the players performed against Sam Houston State. Domination is what you want, domination is what you got. Sam Houston State is hardly a bad football team, even if they are a few talent tiers below what LSU features. Though they pair their high-powered offense with a bit of a sieve on defense, they should be an FCS playoff team. They've made two trips to the FCS National Championship in the past three seasons. Their HC has won a National Title at Delaware. From any indication this is a quality, well coached opponent. And LSU made them look like the Sam Houston School for...

Race to the Bottom Power Rankings: Week 2

Congratulations to Purdue on their imminent move to the MAC! The Race to the Bottom Power Rankings for Week 2 feature a new worst team in college football and several new faces! Remember, these are by no means authoritative, can change from week to week, and are not meant to be taken seriously. Last week's rankings can be found here. Promoted: Florida International - Drubbed FCS Wagner 34-3. This is likely a temporary respite for the Golden Panthers, who host a newly rejuvenated Pitt in their next game. Houston - Routine 47-0 thrashing of FCS Grambling State. Iowa State - Lost 32-28...

SEC Power Poll Ballot Week 2

Waiting for the boom It was a slow week in the SEC as everybody played their designated tune-up blowout game (that's including Ole Miss playing Vanderbilt). So nothing was really revealed this week other than just how terrible Vanderbilt really is. I mean, we all kind of figured after losing to Temple, but the clock has long since struck midnight and Vanderbilt has turned back into a pumpkin. About the only thing we did learn this week is that we are better than the Big Ten because, well, who isn't? 1 GEORGIA Beat the snot out of Bye Week. 2 AUBURN There's a logjam for the top four slots in...

Tiger Bait Review: Week Two

Back to our weekly recap of how LSU’s 12 scheduled opponents faired the previous weekend. Wisconsin (1-1) The Badgers had a very rough first half but still managed to take care of Western Illinois, 37-3. What's probably the most encouraging if you're a Sconnie fan is that Tanner McEvoy got off the shnide in a big way, completing 23 of 28 passes for 238 yards. Sam Houston State (1-2) The Bearkats came in confident, but reality kind of hit hard. Head coach K.C. Keeler probably still has the right attitude though: "But if you're going to be a guy who is afraid to take a challenge or is...

1st Annual Paul Crewe Survivor Pool: Week 3

SEC survivor pool is the gift that keeps on giving. Only the strong survive, except this week, where anyone who made a pick did. I'm not so sure all of you are strong. I could be wrong, though. Kentucky proved last week's strongest voter getter, registering 28% of all votes. Moo State fell right behind at 22% and Tennessee just behind them at 19%. We did lose five contestants, including our fearless editor, due to non-picking on. Shame, shame on you all. No sweet prizes will be received in your mailbox.

LSU 56, Sam Houston State 0: Viewer's Guide to the Online Replay

Just what the doctor ordered. Me, before the game: I'm not looking for a perfect game by any stretch. Certainly not some sort of 500-yard, 50-point output like the Tigers put on UAB in last season's home-opener following a shaky game with TCU. But improvement, and a focused, determined offense. Um...#suspect? Honestly, that was as thorough and as perfect of a beating as anybody could have realistically hoped for. And yeah, Sam Houston State is an FCS program and LSU was supposed to do this. But getting an A in an easy course still counts towards your GPA. The most exciting thing, at least...

First Impressions: LSU 56, Sam Houston St 0

First Impressions: LSU 56, Sam Houston St 0

Yawn. That was just what the doctor ordered. After a sluggish win against a quality opponent, LSU gave fans exactly what they wanted: a snoozer of a win against an outmatched foe. Any concern that any Tiger fan that SHSU was going to be a tough game was dispelled pretty early in the first quarter. Heck, it might have been dispelled on LSU's first play from scrimmage, a 94-yard TD pass from Jennings to Dural. LSU had a double digit lead before even five minutes of game time passed. There's not a whole lot to say about the game. LSU went up early and never looked back. Just about everyone on...

LSU vs. Sam Houston State: What to Watch For

Tigers come home to open a renovated Tiger Stadium with a get-right game against a solid FCS program. Here we are in week two already. Y'all promise this season won't move any faster than one week at a time, right? Time to open up the swanky renovated new digs in Tiger Stadium. BRING ON THE SACRIFICE. What To Watch For Fully Operational? Time to check it all out. The new south end zone upper deck, the new video boards, sound system, the whole deal. We've all seen the photos. By all accounts the construction's gone about as well as it could possibly go, so let's take this baby out for a...
