ATVS Roundtable: 2017 Success and Failure

ATVS Roundtable: 2017 Success and Failure

Our panel talks expectations for the Tigers this season. The gang’s all here as we start working through the summer to talk some football. Q: What, in your eyes, constitutes a successful 2017 season for LSU? Is it a particular record, or something more? Dan Fair or not to the new offensive coaching staff, LSU has a stigma for lack of ability to coach and develop QBs. You can still see that impact in our current recruiting, where we're struggling to lure top targets for 2018. Even allowing that we just landed a pair of top-250 QB talents in the last class, LSU is hardly in the running for...

GAMETHREAD: 2017 CWS 2nd Round: Oregon State (55-4) vs. LSU (49-17), 6:00 p.m., ESPN

Tigers take on the best team in the nation in Omaha. Saturday night, LSU used an eighth inning rally to knock off Florida State and start the 2017 College World Series 1-0 for the first time since 2009. Hours earlier, Oregon State used a rally of their own and a go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth to send Cal State Fullerton to the loser’s bracket. That sets up a matchup between LSU, the hottest team in the nation and Oregon State, the all-around best team in the nation who will end the season with single digit losses no matter what happens in Omaha. As Jared Poche’ came out of...

Tigers Picked to Finish Second in SEC

Tigers Picked to Finish Second in SEC

Annual summer poll of conference SIDs has LSU tied with Auburn. AL.com conducted its annual poll of Sports Information Directors at the SEC’s 14 schools, and the results appear to match the general chalk for the league in 2017 — with LSU picked to finish second. The Tigers were tied with Auburn for No. 2 behind (duh) Alabama, with 142 total points: one first-place vote, four second-place choices, two third and five fourth-place votes. The first-place vote slightly skews the consensus on LSU, which begins its first full season under coach Ed Orgeron (pictured). The Tigers return running...

Recruiting Update: Commits, Decommits and Announcement Plans

Recruiting Update: Commits, Decommits and Announcement Plans

Tigers gain a 2019 offensive lineman and lose a 2018 defensive lineman. Adam Perry, an offensive guard for LSU in the mid-90s and an SEC Academic All-American, can now celebrate after his son, Thomas, received an offer at the OL/DL Camp this weekend and wasted little time in committing to dad’s alma mater. Thomas joins Kardell Thomas and Kenyon Green to become the third offensive lineman for the 2019 class, which has to make Jeff Grimes a bit giddy. After receiving his first SEC offer from Texas A&M less than two weeks earlier after attending their camp, Perry did the same thing at...

Smith and Satchell Depart Softball Team

Smith and Satchell Depart Softball Team

Two members of last years team are leaving Baton Rouge Two sophomores, pitcher Sydney Smith and utility player Taylor Satchel are leaving the LSU softball team as confirmed by the Advocate. Smith had been a key contributor to the Tiger staff, including a breakout freshman season with a 1.16 as a freshman. Her sophomore season wasn’t as productive, posting a 2.08 ERA but that was still enough to make LSU a formidable group. Satchel never could crack consistent playing time over her two years in Baton Rouge with just 21 games played and 11 starts. Over her stint with the Tigers, Satchel saw...

Tigers Add Commitment from 2019 Long Snapper

Tigers Add Commitment from 2019 Long Snapper

Coach O found Les Miles’ Georgia Long Snapper Mine. Ed Orgeron added his third commitment in recruiting this week, and second of the Class of 2019 as long-snapper Quentin Skinner announced his commitment this afternoon. Skinner is a 6-0, 250-pound specialist from Buford, Georgia. He is, naturally, unranked as of this moment. He is, however, the third consecutive Buford, Ga., player the Tigers have recruited at the position. Current deep snapper Blake Ferguson comes from Buford, as did his older brother Reid, who played from 2012-2015. So if we can just find Australian punter No. 4,...

Better Know LSU Super Regional History

Better Know LSU Super Regional History

There is no history of chokes There’s no need to better know our Super Regional opponent… we’ve met. LSU and Mississippi St is the premier college baseball rivalry of the SEC, and maybe the country. We’ve been at this for a while. If you need a refresher, we played State the final weekend of the season. For State fans who may be reading and blocked out that weekend from their memory: LSU won. So I’m left without much of a team to preview. I literally wrote y’all a preview two weeks ago and everything I said about State then still stands now, even if they did have to rally from...

Justin Strawn from the Mississippi State SB Nation affiliate answers some questions with us. LSU and Mississippi State are very familiar opponents in all sports, especially baseball. But since the Tigers have last played the Bulldogs, the outlook in Starkville has shifted a little bit. To talk about these changes, we have wrangled in Justin Strawn from For Whom The Cowbell Tolls. ATVS: Much has been made of Mississippi State's bullpen arms being stretched thin, but yet they continue to win. How are the Bulldogs managing it and do you believe it's sustainable this weekend?

“They’re The Next Team In Our Way”

You’re probably thinking about who will be in the visiting dugout more than LSU is. It’s too perfect not to happen, right? Andy Cannizaro, the beloved hitting coach of the LSU Tigers, leaving in the middle of fall practice to take the head coaching job at LSU’s arch rivals Mississippi State. only to make his return to Baton Rouge in a Super Regional that very season. “It’s almost like it was set-up,” senior outfielder and power bat Greg Deichmann admits. “Obviously it’s not but it’s just kinda destiny that it happened.” Deichmann is right by calling it destiny, a word...

Eric Walker Dominates As LSU Advances To Super Regionals

Eric Walker Dominates As LSU Advances To Super Regionals

LSU shuts down Rice 5-0 on the right arm of Eric Walker. Behind freshman pitcher Eric Walker, LSU (46-17) defeated Rice (33-31) to win the 2017 Baton Rouge Regional and advance to host a Super Regional next weekend. Walker completely handcuffed the Rice lineup, allowing seven hits in 8 innings of work, two of which came before he was pulled in the ninth inning. He walked none, struck out eight and never got into a three ball count. He was in line for a Maddux, or a complete game shutout with less than 100 pitches thrown, before he was pulled after giving up back to back singles. And it...

He’s baaaaack. Arden Key will be back with LSU football once more on Monday after taking a leave of absence for undisclosed personal reasons, and he’ll have a new and improved shoulder according to the university Sunday night. “Arden had shoulder surgery and everything went as planned,” head coach Ed Orgeron said. “We are looking forward to having Arden rejoin the team tomorrow (Monday).” Key has been gone from LSU since the beginning February, when the school announced he had missed spring practice for “personal reasons”.

Tigers play Rice in closeout game for Regional championship. Earlier today Southeastern fell to Rice to end their season for a second year in a row in Baton Rouge.

Softball Season Ends With Loss To Ducks

Softball Season Ends With Loss To Ducks

LSU eliminated in 4-1 loss The LSU softball season came to a close, as the Tiger offense struggled for a second straight game, in a 4-1 loss to Oregon, eliminating the Tigers from the Women’s College World Series. LSU’s offensive woes were compounded by the fact that LSU trailed after just one inning of play. In the bottom of the first, Allie Walljasper surrendered her third home run in the last two games, giving the Ducks an early 2-0 lead. Things appeared to be looking up when Shemiah Sanchez led off the second with a solo home run to left, only to have the next three Tigers retired...

Rice Sluggish To Start But Beat Texas Southern

The Owls dig deep and move on while Texas Southern’s season ends. Rice (32-30) defeated Texas Southern (21-34) 13-6 after a rough start to eliminate them from the NCAA Tournament and end their season. Texas Southern loaded the bases right from the jump with two singles from Kamren Dukes and Jose Camacho followed a Gaudencio Lucca hit by pitch, allowing three runs to score on two consecutive singles to center and left field from Gerrick Jimenez and Christian Sanchez. The Tigers went right back to work in the second with a walk to Charles Guillory to lead off and a sacrifice from Horace...
