First Impressions: LSU 41-3 Kentucky

Now THAT was a vintage LSU performance..... After two consecutive road games, with wildly different outcomes, LSU returned home in a must win game against Kentucky. This wasn't your usual Kentucky team, and the build-up was different than previous games against the Wildcats. The expectation was that this could be a difficult game, and some members of the media even picked UK to pull the upset. It ended up just as so many other LSU-Kentucky games have though, with the Tigers blowing out the Wildcats  Another year, another bowl. Now to some thoughts. LSU had just the start you would've...

LSU vs. Kentucky: BIG. GAME. PREVIEW.

LSU vs. Kentucky: BIG. GAME. PREVIEW.

If it bleeds, we can kill it. Paul Crewe here. Ain't gonna say I told ya so, but I told ya so. We fried some Gator right down there in the Swamp last Saturday. Did you ever have any doubts? How could a team captained by Will Musketchamp ever hope to prevail? They are fighting with ancient artillery, and we pulled out the big guns. But enough about the artist formerly known as Florida, this week brings a new challenge, an upstart team from the East with something to prove. Now, we've faced some stinkers before, but Kentucky is to college football as the Chicago Cubs are to baseball, except...

LSU vs. Kentucky: What to Watch For

Am I Blue? Well now here's a game nobody really thought they'd care about a couple months ago. Kentucky, unranked, but an impressive 5-1 -- realistically a couple seconds from 6-0 -- comes to Tiger Stadium looking to pull off the most significant victory of the Mark Stoops Era, with an LSU team that, despite a much-needed victory last week, needs to keep some positive momentum going. LSU needs to get this win for bowl eligibility (and yes, that matters -- don't think about the location, think about the 10 days of practices for it) before back-to-back showdowns with top-10 Ole Miss and...

Playin' ... "Nice" ... : A Sea of Blue

Alex Scutchfield is back to totally not deal with "basketball school" jokes. 1. So when Stoops first took over, how long did it take before Kentucky fans stopped asking him why the players don't perform layup drills before every game? Oddly enough, Joker Philips had his own version of the layup line that Stoops slowly got rid of and seems to have eliminated altogether this year. It was what we called our pass defense. A little known fact Joker was way ahead of the curve when it came to Coach Cal's recruiting combine. His was just our punters (consistently outstanding, it has been noted)...

Race to the Bottom: Week 7

Now with 50% more awful and 1000% more music! A more traditional Race to the Bottom is up for Week 7, a week where there were plenty of bad performances to go around. While writing this, I decided to give each entrant a theme song which may or may not be loosely tied to the game. As is usual, the rankings are not authoritative, do not matter, and are just for fun. So let's get to it! 128.)  Vanderbilt Last Week's Result: Def. Charleston Southern (FCS) 21-20 at home SMU was idle in Week 7, and therefore we default to Vanderbilt for the bottom spot in this week's Race to the Bottom. The...

First Annual Paul Crewe Survivor Pool: Week 8

Only 11 remain as we enter week 8. Down to the final 11. Goodbye DrJBH, you forgot to pick. Goodbye, ArmyTiger, you went full Aggie, never go full Aggie. Unpredictably, this one went heavy Kentucky. Probably a sound strategy. Bama squeaked out a close one vs. Arkansas, that could have seen several more eliminated, but they play on. This Week's Games #21 Texas A&M vs. #7 Alabama#10 Georgia @ ArkansasMissouri @ FloridaTennessee @ #3 Ole MissKentucky @ LSU It just feels weird typing "#3 Ole Miss." So I expect them to lose. This is foreign territory and they forgot their passports. Georgia...

Playin' Nice: A Sea of Blue

Alex Scutchfield of A Sea of Blue offered us a short primer on what we can expect out of Kentucky this Saturday in Tiger Stadium. 1. Forty-five unanswered points last week versus ULM. The Kentucky offense has really been humming so far this year with Patrick Towles. What's he doing well? People rave about Patrick's arm strength, but the thing that impresses me most is his mental makeup. He hasn't been perfect by any means, but when mistakes happen or things don't go his way, he doesn't get down. The rest of the offense feeds off that. Towles also has surprising speed and agility for a 6-5,...

Tiger Bait Review: Week 7

Our weekly recap of how LSU’s 12 scheduled opponents fared the previous weekend. Wisconsin (4-2, 1-1 in the Big 10) Melvin Gordon rushed for 175 yards of Sconnie's 401 total, and four touchdowns as the Badgers picked up their first conference win over Illinois, 38-28. He's now over the 1,000-yard mark, and bested his rushing touchdown total from last year as well. The season's not off the rails yet at all, but B5Q is asking some questions of the coaching staff. Sam Houston State (2-3, 2-0 in the FCS Southland Conference) Homekoming viktory for the Bearkats, who topped MkNeese State 38-22...

Monday Press Conference 2014 - Week 8

Les Miles addressed the media after an exciting win over Florida on Columbus Day. Not to be confused with St. Patrick's Day. Kicker: Colby Delahoussaye Coach Miles started off Monday's press conference with a bit of nostalgia. He thanked his former players, coaches and administration for the work they have done in order to help him accomplish winning 100 games as LSU's head coach. Terrence Magee actually awarded him with the game ball on Saturday on behalf of the team commemorating the milestone. He then went on to say how proud he was of this team and the way they overcame adversity. Miles...

Roadtrip! An LSU Fan Takes in a Baylor Game

Roadtrip! An LSU Fan Takes in a Baylor Game

What "old money" can learn from "new money" The plan made perfect sense. I'd drive down to Waco from Dallas in the late morning, tailgate for a little bit, go to the Baylor-TCU game, and be back on the road after the game. Sure, I'd miss the first half of the LSU-Florida game, but if all went according to plan, I'd be home in Dallas by halftime. That didn't work out, right about the time the LSU game kicked off when Baylor had only just started the fourth quarter. The game ended up taking almost five hours, counting the time spent storming the field and then trying to exit the stadium as...

LSU 30, Florida 27: Viewer's Guide to the Replay

Even a small step is still forward. As I watched football on Saturday and saw things like Mississippi State catching turnovers on Auburn's first two offensive snaps, or Arkansas fumbling a touchdown out the back of the endzone untouched -- or later recovering a punt that bounced off an Alabama player's leg -- all I kept thinking was "God...does LSU need a play like that." Just a break. A bounce of the ball. Anything that can jump-start some momentum. Saturday night, there were plenty of those plays to go around, but in the end, LSU managed to catch the timeliest one and get out of...

First Impressions: LSU 30, Florida 27

It's a wn. I'll take it. First, the good news. LSU is now in no danger of finishing the SEC season winless. That was always a rather panicked outlook, but it's nice to put that thought to bed. It wasn't pretty, and it's not a game you'll want to put on the highlight reel, but it's a win. And right now, LSU needs all the wins it can get. However, LSU is starting to look a bit more like the LSU teams we all know under Les Miles. The defense had to make two huge stops to bail out an offense that was guided by nearly incompetent quarterback play. Anthony Jennings got the start, and all of the...

LSU vs. Florida: BIG. GAME. PREVIEW.

This one could get ugly. ed. Note: Little light this week due to travel. Apologies! Paul Crewe here. I'm beaten and battered, but still proud as hell and ready to chomp on some Gator. Auburn gave it to us real good, but we can all take pride in knowing that win will likely be vacated in a couple of years anyhow, when Gus Malzahn is coaching the Raiders to Super Bowls. This week's foe features an offense that could also be described as explosive. Just not in the good sense. The phrase "blowing up in your face" comes to mind. Still, playing in the Swamp is always a tall task. First their...
