GAMETHREAD: Nicholls @ LSU, 6:30, SECN+

Tigers welcome Communism to The Box After a secondary-conference opening loss to New Orleans last week, LSU returns to Southland Conference play against Nicholls. Bullpen collapse against the Privateers notwithstanding, LSU has been rolling through the early season slate. Nicholls has had their ups and downs so far, starting with the split against Wake Forest where they lost 5-0 before beating the Deacons. The Colonels would lose to Houston on Sunday to end the weekend, but beat ULL 3-1 before losing 10-1 to Hofstra. Nicholls is coming off of a 3-0 over LIU Brooklyn and a 11-4 win over...

Tigers Complete Sweep of Terrapins With 9-5 Win

Tigers Complete Sweep of Terrapins With 9-5 Win

Cole Freeman’s four-hit day propels Tigers to win. The 11 a.m. start came earlier than anticipated for many, including LSU. Freshman Eric Walker gave up a single and two home runs to left field in the first inning to put LSU in 3-0 hole before they could even bat. Maryland’s Zach Jankowski lead off the game with a solo home run to left field, and Marty Costes followed suit with a double that would set up designated hitter Will Watson for another wind-aided home run out to left. LSU went up and down in order in the first inning, but were able to get on the scoreboard in the second....

LSU Softball Weekend Recap: The Wins That Weren’t

LSU Softball Weekend Recap: The Wins That Weren’t

Although the Tigers took three-of-five games at the Mary Nutter classic, LSU lost the two most important games of the series, 6-5 to #7 UCLA and 3-0 to #18 Utah. In the game against UCLA, Carley Hoover got off to an uncharacteristically bad start when she surrendered a grand slam home run in the first inning to Madeline Jelenicki. Hoover would settle down, yielding just one more run in her six and a third innings pitched. She walked six and struck out eight. For most of the UCLA game, it appeared that Amanda Doyle was going to be the offense for the Tigers. The freshman accounted for the...

Poche´ Falls Short of 2nd No-No; Tiger Bats Dominate For 14-0 Shutout

Poche´ Falls Short of 2nd No-No; Tiger Bats Dominate For 14-0 Shutout

Jared Poche´ will have to wait for another day to make history twice this season. The stellar 15 innings of hit-less work to start his senior campaign came to an end today in the most dramatic 14-0 OOC blowout LSU has ever played. The Tiger offense was firing on all cylinders right from the word go. Deichmann and Slaughter notched RBIs in the 1st inning and the hits just kept coming as LSU batters rolled over 6 Mayland pitchers. There were no moonshot fireworks, as a stiff wind blowing in from left kept everything down and in the park, but the Tigers just kept making great contact on the...

Better Know an Opponent: Maryland Terrapins

Tigers are better than turtles It took a year off, but now it is a time for the return of your completely worthless Poseur Gets to Know the Opposition weekend previews! I know you’ve missed this random collection of esoteric data that bears little resemblance to helpful knowledge for the weekend, but that’s the kind of service I deliver. It is of course the Maryland Terrapins who drag me out of my semi-retirement from previewing, my former stomping grounds and childhood home. The Terps had never been known as much as a baseball powerhouse, but they have had a recent resurgence to...

Football: Transfers and Schedule Notes

Designated purple and gold games are set for 2017. A few news and notes from Wednesday afternoon — for starters, LSU will be losing reserve offensive lineman Andy Dodd to a graduate transfer following the spring. pic.twitter.com/ToqMfr4LLC— andy dodd (@A_Dodd89) February 22, 2017 Dodd appeared set to take over for Ethan Pocic, but it appears that LSU’s staff wants to slide Will Clapp to the center spot. Dodd probably feels he has a better shot to start elsewhere. It’s a hit depth-wise. While the word is that Dodd was likely to be overtaken by redshirt freshman Lloyd...

Hess, Peterson Shine As LSU Beats Hofstra 8-0

Deichmann hits one out the premises as Tigers outclass Pride A night after LSU’s bullpen collapsed with a 5-1 lead against UNO, the Tigers (4-1) put together a near perfect performance against the Hofstra Pride (0-4) Zach Hess made his first ever collegiate start for the Tigers and put together a gem: five innings pitched with only two hits allowed and six strikeouts while only giving up two walks. Hess had a streak where he retired eight of nine Pride batters before giving up three straight walks (separated by an inning). “I thought he was very confident tonight and threw the ball...

LSU Baseball Blows Lead Against UNO

LSU Baseball Blows Lead Against UNO

It’s the end of the world as we know it. For the third year in a row, the LSU Tigers (3-1) have dropped the first midweek game of the season after they lost Tuesday night’s contest at New Orleans 11-8. LSU lead 5-1 after four innings, but the fifth inning would be disastrous for the Tigers. The Privateers (4-0) exploded for six runs to charge ahead of the Tigers, and weren’t done as they added four more in the sixth. UNO’s explosion coincided with LSU’s move from starter Caleb Gilbert to the bullpen. Gilbert pitched well, going his scheduled four innings and only giving up four...

GAMETHREAD: Men’s Basketball vs. Auburn, 6pm, SEC Network

LSU attempts to salvage...something...anything... As I type these words, we’re fifteen minutes from tip off and I’ve, and I say this with a complete lack of sarcasm, been in an LSU Tennis crowd about the size of this. May as well start giving out free crawfish for these games, too. The Tigers are now on a thirteen game losing streak, boasting a 9-17 (1-13 SEC) record. Their 7-7 record at home is now in jeopardy of becoming a losing record. As you might recall, we almost slipped up and gave Auburn the business a month ago in the Auburn Arena, another new basketball arena in the SEC that...

GAMETHREAD: Baseball @ UNO, 6:30pm, Cox Sports/ESPN3

Tigers start a busy week out on the Lakefront. It’s odd to see a week like this so early in the season, but LSU usually tries to have at least one 5-game week in it’s OOC schedule so that the true depth of the roster can be found. This year, that task starts out at UNO. The first true baseball power in Louisiana, UNO finally reemerged last season from the multi-year hibernation of it’s on again - off again failed move to Division 3. Former LSU 1st baseman (and still NCAA record holder for career sac flies) Blake Dean shocked the college baseball world last season not only by becoming...

LSU Softball Weekend Recap: Feast & Famine

Tigers take four games this weekend The LSU offense struggled with inconsistency over the weekend, but still found a way to sweep the series. Although the Tigers averaged seven runs over the series, getting those totals was not always done in the most pleasing manner. Perhaps no game epitomized this more than Saturday’s game against Central Arkansas, a game which LSU won 9-2, but trailed 2-0 entering the 4th inning. A double from Amanda Doyle and a single from Elyse Thornhill coupled with an error gave the Tigers runners on second and third with no outs. The next batter, Allie...

Gym Loses to OU, Bounces Right Back

The midterms are in, and the results are good This weekend was a chance for the second ranked Tigers to see how they measured up against the top ranked team in the nation. Unfortunately, that measurement came up a bit short. The good news is, LSU scored a 197.700, which is a monster of a score. The bad news is, Oklahoma scored a 198.350, which is like Godzilla. Let’s try and put that score in perspective. Yes, it’s the highest score of the season, and Oklahoma’s third 198 or better score of the year, and second consecutive. Their previous high was a 198.075 against Auburn last...

LSU gym goes off the grid for its biggest test of the year It’s the biggest match of the year, and you can’t see it? Aren’t niche sports grand? Gymnastics have come a long way in recent years, particularly at LSU where meets now regularly top 10,000 in attendance, a far cry from the few diehards who used to show up. LSU has been terrific this year in defense of last year’s runner up performance, continuing its streak of scoring at least 197. One team stands in the way of LSU and the mountaintop: Oklahoma. In six meets this year, their lowest score was a 197.425. Oklahoma is also...
