Preview/GameThread: South Carolina at LSU (6 pm, SECN)

Can South Carolina loan Hatin' Ass Spurrier to #SECBasketballFever? After slogging through some SEC road trips, the Tigers finally start to get some home cooking in the middle third of league play. Four of LSU's next five are in the cozy PMAC confines and it's a tame slate mostly, a run-up to what could be a mega-showdown with No. 1 Kentucky. But first things first, it's South Carolina tonight, a game people haven't exactly circled on the calendars, but still one that could be a welcome homecoming after a road sweep last week. This is where the Tigers can build some fan momentum and even...

Joe Anderson Commits To LSU...Kind Of...

Three-star Defensive End Joe Anderson Has Committed To LSU. The 3-star DE out of Reserve, has just committed to LSU as a sign-and-place prospect. Anderson will likely enroll at a junior college, but it's possible LSU could find room for him to sign in 2015 if he can qualify on time and there are still scholarships available. Joe Anderson is 6-4, 240 pounds and plays weak-side defensive end for Riverside Academy. He has been considered a heavy LSU lean for awhile now, but Mississippi State and Ole Miss were the two other schools in contention for his commitment. He is a 3-star according to...

The Time Is Now for LSU Basketball

So you wanna be a contender? Start by handling the teams you're supposed to. It's time for this LSU basketball team to make its move. Fresh off a road sweep in tough environments with key learning moments while routing Florida and edging past Vanderbilt, there's no more excuses. Consider this: the Tigers' next three opponents (South Carolina, Mississippi State and Auburn) are a combined 5-13 in league play and 29-27 overall. It's the '27 Yankees lineup of #SECBasketballFever, since apparently South Carolina is good enough to beat No. 15 Iowa State on a neutral floor but promptly lose five...

Gym Rolls Past the False Tigers

LSU sets the early season tone Three meets into the season, the gymnastics team finally laid down the hammer. The early season is a good time to work on depth and experience, and just get a feel for what the identity of this year's team is. So we shouldn't have been looking for dominance right out of the gate, as it is a long season and it's about peaking at the right time. But it's still pretty great to see the team strut their stuff and show exactly what they can do. LSU didn't need a monster performance to beat Missouri, which only managed 192.725 points. It's not like the other Tigers...

Lanard Fournette Commits!

Leonard's younger brother will join him in Baton Rouge. Three star athlete Lanard Fournette committed to LSU yesterday while on his official visit. I will be taking my talents to Louisiana State University, proud to be a tiger — Scrill (@L_Fournette) January 24, 2015 Lanard is the younger brother of current LSU star running back Leonard Fournette, but he's a talent all his own. It's long been expected he would be apart of the 2015 signing class, so long as LSU offered. At 5'9", 170 pounds he's not quite the physical specimen as Leonard, but he offers LSU some positional options....

Tigers get a boost on Music Row

The LSU Tigers got a boost in strength of schedule and RPI Saturday night for three reasons. The first reason was West Virginia came from behind to beat TCU at the buzzer. The second was Texas Tech upset the ninth ranked Iowa State Cyclones. The third came from the Tigers themselves as they closed the door against the Vanderbilt Commodores in overtime. Except for Jordan Mickey and Jarell Martin, the Tigers struggled offensively to begin the game. The tandem scored 17 of the team’s first 19 points. With 7:51 to go before half, LSU was up 19-18. Vanderbilt went on a run knocking down...

Preview: Tigers travel to Music Row (5pm/ESPNU)

Jordan Mickey, Jarell Martin, and company head to 16th Avenue Saturday where steel guitars cry and fiddles play with a dream. They are not like the boys who make the noise dreaming of playing on the sacred circle of the Grand Ole Opry; however, they are boys dreaming of playing on the road to the Final Four. Current bracketology has LSU projected to be a number 8 seed. This is largely based on strong out-of-conference play with wins against Texas Tech and at West Virginia. Against Division 1 teams collectively, the Tigers have a record of 14-4 including 9-1 at home, 4-1 on the road, and 1-2...

2015 LSU National Signing Day Preview: The Quarterbacks

What does LSU's QB class look like for 2015? There's no more hotly debated subject at LSU than the QB position. LSU slugged through another season of porous QB production in 2014, leaving little optimism for the 2015 season. Anthony Jennings finished the season much like he played most of the season: pedestrian. Brandon Harris finished the season much like he played most of the season: not at all. In 2012, Zach Mettenberger struggled through his junior season, but did give us glimmers of hope, with his performance against Alabama and the inconsistent, but sometimes beautiful passes he would...

Donte Jackson Commits To LSU!

Despite a strong late push from Georgia, it wasn't enough as Donte Jackson announced to stay in-state and attend LSU After garnering a fifth star from 247 Sports in one of their final updates after a strong performance throughout the week at the Army All-American Bowl practices and games, Donte Jackson made it known he will be heading to Baton Rouge for his college tenure despite a visit to Georgia this past weekend.  While Steele didn't have to do much work on this one, he technically starts his coordinator career at LSU with a major splash at a position of now need following the early...

5-Star Donte Jackson Announcement Thread

Where will the 5-star ATH go? He makes his decision today. New Orleans athlete Donte Jackson will make his collegiate decision today at 10:30 a.m. CST. Nola.com will carry live coverage of the announcement on a stream that you can watch here: Broadcast live streaming video on Ustream Jackson lit up Army All-American Bowl practice a couple weeks ago. He earned heaping helpings of praise, like this, this, this, this, and this. 247 rewarded his performance with a 5-star rating. I'm convinced Rivals didn't follow suit only because 247 did it first. Rivals still bumped him like 100+...

Entire LSU Baseball 2015 Season To Be Broadcast

The SEC and LSU released the SEC baseball television schedule for 2015 and it's pretty close to the dream broadcast situation we've always had. Every LSU home game is under the rights control of ESPN under the SEC Network deal, so every LSU home game, from opening night on, will be on some combination of ESPN/2/U/SEC Network or the SEC Network+ platform. Additionally, the tradition of LSU baseball's home station, the Jumbo Sports produced Cox Sports TV games will continue with all 3 of the games at the Houston Classic and LSU's 4 in-state road games (@ Southern, @ Tulane, @ UNO, and the...

Preview/GameThread: LSU at Florida (6 pm, ESPN)

UF has won 6 in a row vs. LSU. The Tigers desperately need a win. Can they end the streak? Welcome to another edition of the LSU Basketball Roller Coaster Ride. You must be at least this cynical to ride. Okay, okay, so things aren't that bad yet but the Tigers embark for a crucial week on the road, starting tonight at Florida. And hoo boy, is it ever a tough task. Don't be fooled by Florida's record. The Gators are clearly an upper echelon SEC team and are relatively healthy after a rash of injuries and missed time led to some narrow losses against an elite non-conference slate. It's not...

The Great Media: Start Together by Sleater-Kinney

Yes, everything they have ever done is great. After a decade-long hiatus, the greatest American rock band returns today with a new album. Sleater-Kinney is not just the greatest band to come out of the riot grrrl scene or more globally, the greatest all-female rock band. No, I sincerely believe that Sleater-Kinney is the epitome of American rock n roll, particularly in the post-grunge era. It diminishes their impressive recorded output to reduce the story to their gender. It’s not that their gender is wholly irrelevant, though. Rock ‘n roll pre-"Alternative Nation" was almost strictly...

Kevin Steele, the 3-4 Defense and LSU Personnel Part 1: The Scheme

Will Kevin Steele implement a 3-4 at LSU? If so, what would that look like? Does LSU have the personnel to run the scheme? Let's answer those questions. Last week, veteran LB Lamar Louis announced his intentions to return to LSU, and perhaps, more notably, tossed out an interesting bit about Kevin Steele's scheme: "We’ll have a 3-4 package. We’ll have a 4-3 package. I think we’re going to be multiple," linebacker Lamar Louis said. "Coach (Les) Miles wants to move more to a multiple defense, and that’s something I’m all for." He then added, on his prospective role in the...

Kevin Steele and LSU: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Whaddya know, whaddaya say? So ever since the Kevin Steele news, things have been kind of a roller coaster for Tiger fans. The hire was not all that well-received, but things perked up the next day with the announcement that Ed Orgeron would be joining the staff as well. We know what we're getting with Coach O, so let's focus on Steele for the moment. For a guy that draws such a visceral negative reaction among fans, he sure does seem to be highly regarded by his peers and never really struggles to find a job. He's been hired by a number of coaches, and of course multiple times by Nick...

LSU 1/16 Official Visitor Weekend Update

How did the recruiting visits from this weekend go? As our man cdub wrote about on Friday, LSU played host to several highly regarded prospects over the weekend. No commitments came about, but the staff made some solid impressions on a pair of guys at a much needed spot: defensive end. Arden Key Key didn't pull the trigger on a commitment, but from all reports the visit went exceptionally well. Here's a couple of tweets he and his folks sent out during the trip: The nicest Coach I have ever met ☺️ Ed Orgeron GO TIGERS pic.twitter.com/mnrBiyTRxu — Ronald & Aden (@Loveyourangel_)...
