New Orleans Nike Opening Camp Recap

A lot of talented recruits from Louisiana and the surrounding states showed up to New Orleans in order to earn an invite to Nike's coveted The Opening. This past weekend, the Nike Opening football regional was held in New Orleans at Victory Field (a stadium recently renovated by Nike in Joe W. Brown Memorial Park in New Orleans East). More than 450 high school football players attended the event and put their best foot forward in order to earn an invitation to the Nike Opening main event held at Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. It was an absolutely gorgeous day for the event with...

Jordan Mickey Heading to the NBA

LSU's other sophomore forward has declared for the draft. This is not an April Fool’s joke. The player second to only Shaquille O’Neal in blocks shots in the record books at LSU is leaving after his sophomore season and declaring for the National Basketball Association. Jordan Mickey was recruited out of Prime Prep Academy in Dallas.  According to his bio on lsusports.net, he averaged 16 points and 10 rebounds, with two blocks his senior season and was a consensus four-star recruit.  A season before his Arlington Grace Prep team won the Texas state championship.  Mickey signed with a...

GAMETHREAD: Wally Pontiff Jr. Classic, LSU (23-5) vs. ULL (15-10), 7 PM, CST

#31Always This is so much better than Southern or Southern Miss. I would hate for The Pontiff Classic to be overshadowed by all the hate of a rivalry, but playing ULL or Tulane makes this soooo much more engaging. LSU leads the series all time 49-29 and have won 10 of the last 15 meetings, but ULL did take a regular season (albeit rain shortened) game in Baton Rouge last year. LSU is going into this game looking for damage control after dropping their first series of the year to Kentucky, a series they really should have swept. LSU is batting .330 as a team, which is the second best in...

Weekend Recap: Ugh

I'll say it again: Ugh Every baseball season, there's going to be one series that just defies all standards of common sense and what we expect from the sport. Baseball is a game of predictable rhythms, but the frustrating part is that once you feel you know these rhythms, everything gets shot all to hell. Sometimes, weird stuff just happens. That was the Kentucky series in a nutshell. It didn't make a lick of sense, and now that it is over, it's best we never talk about it again. There are no lessons to be learned other than, "every so often, sports are weird." We shouldn't read too much...

And The Valley Projects: Week 7

It's the end of the world as we know it. There's a new number 1 national seed after LSU dropped a series against Kentucky that it easily could have swept. It's ok, I'm here to commiserate with you. The National Seeds UCLA, Texas A&M, Florida State, USC, Arizona State, LSU, UCF, Illinois UCLA (21-5) had a very impressive 5-0 week at the expense of San Diego State and Washington State and for that they take command of the newly vacated #1 national seed position. This weekend they will welcome Oregon State to Westwood, a huge series for both teams in their own right. But Adam,...

And the Valley Drinks: Bayou Teche Cocodrie

Weather’s warming up, so time to start lightening up the beer a little. With the season turning, time to start working some lighter beers into this list, at least in terms of color. In this case, that's about all that's light. Bayou Teche's Cocodrie, a Belgian Tripel-style IPA: Cocodrie is Cajun French for alligator, and this Belgian style ale is stuffed with enough hops to stand up to a sauce-piquant prepared with one. We recklessly crammed IPA-worthy additions of hops (six separate hop additions, plus dry hopping) into an elegant and tastefully brewed Tripel - the spice and fruit...

Weekend Preview: UK @ #1 LSU

Time to solidify that #1 ranking. Kentucky Wildcats - 16-9 overall, 2-4 SECWarren Nola RPI:  51stISR: 68thRank: N/A After surviving the trip to Fayettenam last weekend, the Tigers get to host Kentucky at the Box.  The weather should be fantastic for the series this weekend with average temps in the mid 70's. Kentucky comes into Alex Box with at 16-9 record overall, and 2-4 in the SEC.  They opened SEC play by getting swept at South Carolina, but bounced back last weekend taking two of three from Mississippi St. in Lexington.  But I doubt anyone in Kentucky noticed because they're all...

Cookin' ATVS Style: Skinny Crab Cakes

Who says we can’t cook light? Ah the sacrifice of Lent. A.K.A., the time when South Louisiana goes crazy over seafood on Friday nights. Okay, the other time. I gave up bread this year, so my po-boy intake is down dramatically. Ditto for fried seafood. Any parent will tell you having kids can impact your diet, so wifey and I try to cut things down where we can. We love food, so this is not easy. However, she found this recipe on Skinnymoms.com, and I have to say, it came out pretty good. It's not going to be the finest, restaurant-quality crab cakes you'll ever have, but given that we...

Poseur's Top Ten Authors

Ranking things again! After our controversial cereal rankings, in which I angered the shredded wheat lobby and freaks who like Apple Jacks, I've decided we need to rank more ridiculous things around these parts. It's the football offseason, so feel free to suggest things that need an authoritative ATVS ranking. I've got the time. So, in keeping with the spirit of rankings things, I'm going to bust out a wholly personal list and then ask for yours. This is a website that is primarily full of words, yet we don't spend enough times just talking about writers. So I'm ranking my ten favorite...
