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,...

Preview: LSU hosts Texas Tech

LSU basketball opens up the season in the PMAC against the Red Raiders. Tubby Smith returns to the Pete Maravich Assembly Center tonight as the LSU Men’s Basketball team plays host to the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Smith has a coaching record of 15-3 all-time against the Tigers. The majority of the games came as he coach of the Kentucky Wildcats from 1997 to 2007 whom he led to the national championship in 1998. Smith’s Red Raider squad comes into tonight’s contest with a record of 1-0 after coming from behind to beat Loyola-Maryland by a score of 71-59. The team started a lineup with a...

Tiger Bait Review: Week 12

Our weekly recap of how LSU’s 12 scheduled opponents fared the previous weekend. Wisconsin (8-2, 5-1 in the Big 10) Um...yeah...maybe you heard. Melvin Gordon rushed for 408 yards -- a new FBS record -- in just twenty-five carries in a 59-24 win over Nebraska. How about a closer look at some of the more dominant plays via SB Nation video? Sam Houston State (7-4, 6-1 in the FCS Southland Conference) Eight-hundred and twenty-three. That's how many yards the Bearkats put up on Houston Baptist in a 76-0 blowout. 823. 601 yards on the ground. ULM (3-7, 2-4 in the Sun Belt) The Warhawks...

Arkansas 17, LSU 0: Postmortem

Well, that was horrible… You know, I'd make a joke about the lists of things that went right versus what went wrong on this game, but I'm not really sure anything did go right. Through a combination of injuries, ineffectiveness, bad coaching and a general lack of give-a-fuck, LSU served up Arkansas' first conference win in two years. And LSU's first shutout since the 2012 BCS title game. Yaaaaay let's bring that up again! After a week of saying all the right things, it honestly seemed like the cold air hit and took the Tigers will right with it. From the second things started going wrong...

Late Recap: LSU 93, Gardner Webb 82

In the season opener, the Tigers mixed moments of offensive beauty with dreadful defense but avoided the dreaded #SECBasketballFever. Forgive me for the late recap, but a weekend drinking in New Orleans beckoned. With all the talk of LSU's dreadful offense in Fayetteville, there was a Tiger team who piled up the points on Saturday. Yes, LSU basketball is back and while a bit underwhelming, the opener wasn't a harbinger of #DOOM or a sign of a juggernaut in training. No, the Tigers were sloppy defensively and lacked the kind of killer instinct to ever put Gardner Webb away, but also showed...

First Impressions: LSU 0, Arkansas 17

Zero points? We didn't score one damned point? What does a guy have to do to get benched? I realize this was a total team effort. Colby Delahoussaye missed two field goals. Terrence Magee led the team in rushing with 24 yards. TWENTY FOUR. The defense allowed Arkansas to convert 10 of 17 3rd downs. No one covered themselves in glory tonight. But holy hell, was Anthony Jennings terrible. He's been terrible all year, but this was sort of his perverse masterpiece of miserable quarterback play. Jennings couldn't do anything right, and worse yet, both coaching staffs knew it. Arkansas put about...

First Annual Paul Crewe Survivor Pool: Week 12

Auburn is the worst. Weh eh eh eh elllllllllllllllll. Apparently y'all didn't listen to the common wisdom that you can't trust Auburn for nothin'. The Tiggers fell down to A&M, at home, knocking out seven of ya. And then there were three. Just when it looked like no more surprises could come, the SEC does it to us again. Top 10 team at home vs. a young an under performing team is almost always a recipe for success. Except in the SEC, where most everyone is roughly equal and each week is a meat grinder. Brutal. This Week's Games South Carolina @ Florida#1 Mississippi State @ #5...

LSU vs. Arkansas: What to Watch For

LSU vs. Arkansas: What to Watch For

Different time stamp, same ol’ scary-ass Arkansas. Welp, ain't much time to feel sorry for ourselves (not that it ever stops us). LSU has to strap it back up and head up to Fayetteville to face the 4-5 Arkansas Razorbacks. What to Watch For on Saturday But Maybe They Just Want to See Us? And they say you can't make a Trap Game joke without Admiral Ackbar. HA! This game sets up as a let-down for LSU with all the subtlety of the Las Vegas Strip. Arkansas hasn't won an SEC game in two years. They're coming off a bye week and get a beat-up LSU team that just went through an emotional loss....

LSU Basketball Season Preview: The Frontcourt

The M&M boys should have the Tigers poised to dominate around the rim. Let's get this out of the way right now. Jordan Mickey and Jarell Martin should be one of the best duos in the country, full stop. Anything less will be a disappointment, especially in a perpetually bumbling SEC. But there's more to the frontcourt than just those two. There's an influx of heralded newcomers and backups galore. LSU won't be lacking for height on this team. The question will be how the puzzle pieces fit together and whether guys like Darcy Malone or Aaron Epps can hold down the fort for 10 minutes a...

Heeeeeere Piggy Piggy!

What’s that I smell? That aroma...there's almost a...sweetness to it... Nah, it isn't that boucherie over there on the spit, or those cracklins in the pot. This is...different. I think it might be desperation. Yes...yes...I've seen this before. When a man is driven to his breaking point. To rock bottom. When his mind drives him to places he never thought he would go. To do things he never...ever...thought he would do. I've seen a momma bring her baby's diapers back to the store so she can play some more video poker. I've seen a daddy...sneak into the bathroom...where the family kept the...

It's Time to Bench Anthony Jennings

I reluctantly add a bit of negativity to the din of the internet If you can read Ross Dellenger's interview with Anthony Jennings, and not be rooting for the kid to succeed, then I just don't want to know you. Jennings is everything you want in player from a personality standpoint. He is ambitious, eager to improve, but also willing to shoulder the blame for wins and losses. He said that he felt this LSU team could have gone undefeated and this team would have won better had he played better. This is a leader, and a kid who is absolutely not ducking responsibility. He even took his...

LSU Basketball Season Preview: The Backcourt

With the Tigers tipping off the regular season this Saturday, uncertainty still reigns around the guard position This is as much turnover as we've seen in the LSU backcourt since Bo Spencer (remember him?) was still around. So it's safe to say we're in for a whole new era of Tiger guards here. Gone are Anthony Hickey, a three-year starter and recent Oklahoma St. transfer, and Andre Stringer, a four-year contributor who was LSU's only consistent 3-point threat in recent seasons. Malik Morgan was essentially shipped out to Tulane after his knee injury and Shane Hammink saw the writing on the...

Playin' Nice: Arksansas Fight

Ryan Higgins of Arkansas Fight fills us in on the Razorbacks. 1. I think just about everybody on LSU's side is looking at this game as just a massive trap. Arkansas is spoiling for a win, the Tigers are coming off an emotional loss. Game's at night, in Fayetteville. Freezing temperatures. How confident are Hog fans on the whole "lying in wait" thing? I'd say it's to the point that they're overconfident. Personally, I've declared an "I'll believe it when I see it" policy when it comes to believing when the Hogs will finally win a SEC game. 2. This streak has featured so many close calls and...

Tiger Bait Review: Week 11

Our weekly recap of how LSU’s 12 scheduled opponents fared the previous weekend. Wisconsin (7-2, 4-1 in the Big 10) Melvin Gordon rushed for 205 yards with a touchdown rushing and receiving as Wisconsin squashed Purdue 34-16. B5Q discusses the big win here and prepares for a big B1G West showdown with Nebraska. Sam Houston State (6-4, 5-1 in the FCS Southland Conference) Bearkats picked up a fifth Southland Conference win over Incarnate Word, 40-19. ULM (3-6, 2-3 in the Sun Belt) A 39-yard field goal in the final minute by Bentlee Critcher handed the Warhawks their sixth loss of the...
