2015 TE Foster Moreau Commits!

2015 New Orleans TE chose to stay home and committed to LSU last night. Last night, New Orleans TE Foster Moreau announced his commitment to LSU via Twitter: Excited to announce that I have officially committed to play football for LSU!! #GeauxTigers — Foster Moreau (@fhmoreau) December 25, 2014 The news isn't altogether shocking, considering the Tigers offered a week ago and seemed to be turning up the heat on his recruitment. He's set to visit on January 16th, but still has visits to Air Force (Jan. 9th), and Tulane (Jan. 23rd) scheduled. Moreau sports a great frame at 6'5",...

Top 25 Louisiana Recruits for 2015

Who are the state's best players in 2015? Louisiana is one of the nation's prime hotbeds for NFL talent. Outside of the talents that wind up at LSU, or even the SEC, you can typically find a smattering of Louisiana players on rosters all across the country. Cdub, Cody and I put our collective heads together to come up with our own Louisiana Top 20. Here's our composite: 1) Tyron Johnson, WR, Uncommitted The state's lone consensus 5-star, this was a pretty easy choice. Johnson's got a little Odell Beckham Jr. to him, though maybe not quite the athletic skills. He's dynamic with the ball in...

LSU 71, Charleston 47: Holiday Block Party

The Tigers swarmed and swatted the visitors right out of the PMAC Well, that's the kind of performance we've been waiting for. For all the good this LSU hoops team had done through the first ten games, there was something missing. Yes, the Tigers had amassed some key non-conference wins, survived the hiccup in the Bahamas without ruining the season and taken care of the teams it was supposed to. And yet... they hadn't truly dominated a game. Even against lower-level foes like McNeese, Gardner Webb and Sam Houston, the games were a little in doubt at some point in the second half. That...

Preview/Game Thread: LSU vs. Charleston (8 pm, 98.1fm, SEC Network)

No place like home for LSU from now until SEC play It's back home for the holidays for the LSU basketball team, and now they've got a few gifts coming their way. Starting tonight with College of Charleston, there's no reason LSU should be seriously tested before SEC play in a trio of home games versus lightweights. In other words, an 11-2 start should be all but wrapped and under the tree, ready to enjoy come the new year. This is not to say that the Cougars provided no challenge to the Tigers, just that a team with the kind of postseason hopes LSU enjoys shouldn't be sweating out a home...

What Are These LSU Underclassmen's Draft Prospects Looking Like?

These decisions will be the first step in determining the 2015 Tigers’ potential. What could have been? Imagine the 2013 Tigers with Eric Reid still patrolling the secondary and Kevin Minter and Bennie Logan up the middle of the defense. With Sam Montgomery or Barkevious Mingo still rushing from the edge. Imagine last year's squad with Odell Beckham Jr. or Jarvis Landry running comeback routes with their eyes closed and making circus catches? People asked questions like "how did LSU lose three games with an offense loaded with players that are now tearing up the NFL?" The answer was...

Where Does LSU Stand with Daylon Mack?

News broke Friday, from the source himself, that 5-star defensive tackle Daylon Mack de-committed from Texas A&M, whom he committed to in October 2013. Mack was considered one of the key pieces to an Aggie recruiting class that's suddenly hemorrhaging after 5-star LB Malik Jefferson, long considered an Aggie lean, and 4-star WR DeAndre McNeal, both chose the Longhorns.

Who is the Most Over and Under paid Offensive Staff in College Football?

Let's break down the numbers and see which offensive staffs earned their money in 2014. On Monday, we took a look at the defensive staff pay in correlation to defensive S&P+ in effort to see if we could determine what coaching staffs were under and over paid in 2014. As discussed in that piece, there's no true illustration of causation here and generally speaking, there's a positive correlation between paying more and achieving more. Of course, with that comes all the various variables. More money typically means a bigger program which typically means more talent, which generally...

LSU 79, UAB 70: Blazing The Trail

Do not discount any road win — LSU's finally seemed to learn that much. Typically, when we talk about wins being "valuable" in college basketball, it's in reference to the all-consuming RPI and resume necessary for NCAA Tournament chances come March. That's not exactly the case with this come-from-behind win in Birmingham on Thursday night. After all, how much help can beating a now 4-7 team from Conference USA provide for your strength of schedule? But that's missing the point of the value the Tigers gleaned from this game. Be it the road environment, the shorthanded lineup or extremely...

Preview/GameThread: LSU at UAB (8 p.m., CBSSN, 98.1 FM)

A trap game can't be a trap if it's this obvious, right? Is it weird if I'm STILL thinking payback for this? There's obviously no basketball rivalry between LSU and UAB, so this current batch will be forgiven for not having much animosity toward the Blazers. But they damn well better respect them despite a 4-6 record, because LSU needs laser focus in this final road game before SEC play. And the task is all the more difficult for who may be sitting on the bench rather than running the offense. Josh Gray is very much doubtful for this one after rolling his ankle against Sam Houston last...

La'el Collins And Coming Back for the Senior Year

Collins changed the script The honors and plaudits keep piling in for La'el Collins. This weekend, he was named the team's most valuable player, and he's already taken home the Jacobs Trophy for the SEC's top offensive lineman. He is a consensus first team All-American, a lock to go in the first round of the NFL Draft, and most importantly from LSU's point of view, he has earned an invite to the Senior Bowl. Because let's be honest, LSU hasn't been sending a whole lot of its best players to the Senior Bowl recently. Connor Neighbors also earned a Senior Bowl invite, and he's the kind of...

And the Valley Drinks: NOLA's MECHAhopzilla

I’ve been reluctant on IPAs in the past, but I decided to dive in on this one. In a lot of ways, this beers series has led to some palate growth for me. I've never been a huge pale ale/IPA fan, but in the last year due in some part to some friends' recommendations, to my own curiosity and also out of a desire to give y'all some variety in these reviews, I've slowly worked a few IPAs into my beer diet. I gave NOLA's traditional Hopitoulas IPA a whirl last summer and actually came to like it a bit -- it's a good light meat/seafood pairing, especially in warm weather. Their imperial/double...

Jeremy Cutrer Signs With LSU

The JUCO DB from Kentwood, Louisiana has officially signed with the Tigers. Jeremey Cutrer, the 3-star DB from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College signed with LSU today. The former 2013 commit was able to get his academics on the right track and develop more as a player at the JUCO level this past fall. In his last season at Mississippi Gulf Coast C.C., he recorded 44 tackles, 1 interception and a team leading 9 PBU's. In an interview with Nola.com, Cutrer "had to get used to the environment." But Cutrer also felt that JUCO was a good thing, "I'm pretty glad that I came to junior...

From Jeremy To Odell...

It all started as congratulations between two college teammates. Those of you that follow former Tigers on twitter might have noticed that Odell Beckham Jr. and Jeremy Hill were throwing a few bouquets at each other as nominees for the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for their respective huge performances. Hill rushed for 148 yards and two touchdowns for the Bengals, while Beckham put up 143 receiving yards of his own, with three touchdowns.
