How You Gonna Keep 'Em Down On The Farm...

He’s got the whooooooole world…in his hands! He’s got the whoooole wide world…in his hands! People will say that I am a leader. That I have followers. But it is not so! Brothers and sisters! Family! That is what you all are to me! You see, independence is a very important quality to me. But it is only through strife...discord, that we...as free men...can truly come to agree. And I only offer you a truth...for you to see...for you to decide on. Beware of those who follow blindly Kevin! Oh, they will cheer for you! They will chant! They will sway to the music that you sing to...

LSU vs. Texas A&M: BIG. GAME. PREVIEW.

Let me make you an offer you can't refuse. Paul Crewe here. Round and round she goes, where she stops, nobody knows. After a brief hiatus versus the Hogs, BIG. GAME. PREVIEW. is back and we ain't got no badges, we don't need no badges and I don't got to show you no stinkin' badges. This week we roll into Aggietown, College Station, as they call it.  The Aggies are a strange, strange bunch. They chant weird things like Woop! and Gig' Em. Apparently "Howdy" is the official greeting of Texas A&M. That's not cute, it's annoying. SWAGFACTOR It's been a topsy turvy season at A&M. It started oh...

LSU vs. Texas A&M: What to Watch For

And now…the end is here…and so we've reached…the final curtain… This isn't LSU's final game of the season, but it's the last we'll see of the 2014 Tigers. Teams are always slightly different come bowl season, one way or another. We should be sadder about the final regular season game, but I don't think many people are. There's a sense of relief that we can move forward. But we'd better hope that mindset doesn't extend to the locker room. People can say "there's nothing to play for" but it's always stupid. There's a game to play, and that means that there is a game to win. Does the...

Playin' ... "Nice"... : Good Bull Hunting

The one where we talk with Dr. Norris Camacho and James Gardner of Good Bull Hunting about life in a cult Aggie fanhood and Thursday's big game. 1. Look...we're in this...we're going to try and make this work. But you guys have really gotta stop trying to make us do things like your ex and talk about how much you don't miss them and stuff. It's just awkward. Promise? Dr. Camacho: Heh...what are you talking about? [checks phone frantically, refreshes Burnt Orange Nation] Gardner: Hey hey hey we're totally in this too. You're crazier than our ex in all the right ways. You're fun to party...

RECRUITING: How Are We Looking?

Taking a look at some targets and seeing how LSU stands in their interests with signing day just a couple of months away. With signing day approaching and the regular season coming to a close, I figured it would be a great time to fill you guys in with some recruiting information. A&M Game Visitors I'll start with some important names that will be in College Station on Thursday to watch LSU take on Texas A&M. Kendall Sheffield will be visiting A&M unofficially this weekend and is considered a 5-star CB out of Missouri City, TX. He has the Aggies extremely high on his list with FSU, Alabama...

Playin' Nice: Good Bull Hunting

Ranger222 of Good Bull Hunting fills us in on the Aggies. 1. Things have been up and down, but Kyle Allen's freshman year is closing out on a high note. What's been the difference with him in the starting spot, compared to Kenny Hill, who was so hot early this year? Kyle Allen exudes a lot of confidence for a true freshman that will only be making his fourth career start. The biggest difference between the two is Allen's willingness and ability to throw deeper down the field than Kenny Hill. Attacking the deep third of a defense has opened up the Texas A&M passing attack to what we have...

Monday Press Conference 2014 - Week 15

Les Miles has his final Monday Press Conference following a bye week and a rough shutout to Arkansas. Coach Miles opened his press conference by talking about Odell's catch and wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. He called OBJ's catch "spectacular," but mentioned that he and Jarvis Landry would pull off catches like that in practice on a regular basis. Les Miles said his team is really looking forward to Texas A&M on Thursday and that he knows how much it would mean to this team for them to keep the 8-game-victory streak alive for a 15th season. Miles then went on to talk about...

Odell Beckham Jr's Amazing Catch Sparks Meme

Odell Beckham made an insane, once-in-a-lifetime catch on Sunday Night Football last night, that we have posted here. Here's the Vine of the catch, that's linked in the previous post: Over the past several weeks, Beckham's become a bit of an internet phenomenon, doing things that don't shock any of us, since we watched him do it all last season. His pre-game warm-up routine of snagging the ball with one hand attracted early attention. Naturally, the army of internet artists went to work photoshopping OBJ into various scenarios, cleverly starting the hashtag #thingsodellcouldcatch, as...

The Talent Drain

Yes, we miss a bunch of guys collecting NFL paychecks. No, we still shouldn't be this awful on offense. Odell Beckham broke the internet on Sunday night with one of the single most amazing catches anybody has ever seen. He finished the game with 10 catches for 146 yards and 2 TD. His old teammate, Jarvis Landry, didn't have quite the same day, as he only eked out 7 catches for 50 yards and 2 scores. Their quarterback from last year threw for 345 yards and 2 TD on a 20 for 39 day. Oh, and two of the running backs from last year's team squared off against one another and combined to go 133...

Tiger Bait Review: Week 13

Our weekly recap of how LSU’s 12 scheduled opponents fared the previous weekend. Wisconsin (9-2, 6-1 in the Big 10) It took another 200-plus yard day from Melvin Gordon, but the Badgers picked up their sixth Big 10 win and put themselves in position to take on Ohio State in the championship game if they can win Paul Bunyan's Ax next week against Minnesota. In related news, Oklahoma's Samaje Perine didn't even give Gordon's single-game rushing record a week, running for 427 yards as Oklahoma squashed Kansas. Imagine just letting your best back tote the mail like that for one game,...

Paradise Jam: LSU defeats Weber State 72-58

Strong second half propels The Tigers past The Wildcats After a disappointing loss to Old Dominion Friday The Tigers rebounded with a victory over Weber State. The defense once again looked good, but the offense struggled in the first half. Forward Jordan Mickey gave some life to the team, leading The Tigers with 27 points and 14 rebounds. Mickey also led the team with 18 points and 14 rebounds in the overtime win against Texas Tech. In the loss to Old Dominion he only posted 5 points and 6 rebounds. Perhaps Mickey will be able to revamp the offense moving forward in the season. It was...

Preview: LSU looks to rebound from Paradise Lost

Game one didn't go as planned, but LSU's back at it today at the Paradise Jam. The LSU Tigers will look to rebound today in their second game of the Paradise Jam after suffering the fate of those in John Milton’s Paradise Lost. It was a recurring theme against Old Dominion with an early lead before falling in a double-digit hole in the second half, ultimately falling 70-61. LSU was ahead by a 28-17 score in the first half, but was trailing by 10-points with 11:29 remaining in the game. At that point the team led by Keith Hornsby and Jarell Martin started to claw their way out of another...

Preview/Game Thread: LSU vs. Old Dominion

LSU Basketball plays The Old Dominion Monarchs in the first round of Paradise Jam Friday night. The Tigers face off tonight against The Old Dominion Monarchs in the first round of Paradise Jam. Old Dominion comes in with a 2-0 record after winning their first two games against UNC-Wilmington and Richmond. The Monarchs come in with more experience and depth on their roster than The Tigers. This will be a much different test for LSU than Texas Tech, who started three freshmen. The Monarchs also play a different style than the Red Raiders. They play an inside-out game, making 14 3-pointers in...

Paradise Jam Preview: Is LSU the favorite?

We briefly run down the Paradise Jam field, as LSU hoops looks for some momentum against a so-so field of NIT contenders. This isn't a Maui Invitational or a NIT tip-off, with ranked teams and national championship coaches galore. No, this is the Paradise Jam, a nice test for LSU but nothing special. The average Ken Pomeroy ratings of the eight teams in the field is 122. That's a lot of NIT and CBI quality. Which is good and bad, depending on how you want to look at it. There's a chance to earn some decent wins with less risk of a loss. However, it's less likely there's a signature win in...

Link Gumbo - 11/21/14

A round-up of the latest LSU related news from the last week Jeremy Hill now threat to win NFL Rookie of the Year - Cincy Jungle - Helped a bit by injuries to primary Bengals RB Gio Bernard, Jeremy Hill has pounced on his opportunity and played extremely well over his last 3 games, rushing for 361 yards and 2 TD's. He has 556 yards on the year which leads all rookie RB's. I found the talk that he wouldn't make it in the NFL completely ridiculous and it's good to see Jeremy prove that Jarvis Landry Mic'd Up - Jarvis Landry is just so much fun. We knew about his personality and love for the...

LSU 69, Texas Tech 64: Raiders of The Lost Arc

Well, it wasn't pretty. LSU's first test of the season turned out to be a lot closer than expected. While the Tigers were wholly flawed in squeaking by Texas Tech in overtime, there's some building blocks and major concerns going forward. At this point in the season, though, a win will get the job done. Look, it's easy to overreact to early season results - remember Texas A&M walloping South Carolina three months ago? - and college basketball is a four-month trudge toward the postseason. Tech overcame some early lethargy and then absolutely jumped all over LSU late in the first half,...
