Chalk Talk: Previewing A&M with Good Bull Hunting

They don't get any bigger than this in the regular season. #1 vs #2 with a lead for the SEC regular season championship on the line. To get a read on the Aggies, I talked with with Jason Zimmermann of Good Bull Hunting. PodKATT: Not only is this a battle between the #1 and #2 teams in the national polls, LSU and A&M are currently 1 or 2 in the SEC in most statistical categories. The Aggies have a slightly better pitching staff on paper, but are currently listing TBA for the Game 3 starter. Who do you think that will be, and who are some of the guys in the bullpen we should look out...

Spring Football Five Things: Florida

Richard Johnson of Alligator Army fills us in on spring practice for the Gators. 1. This had to be something of a different spring for Florida, with a new coach taking over for somebody that was unceremoniously fired. Was there a general vibe or mood coming out of first practices of the Jim McElwain Era in Gainesville? Well the mood is that defense will carry the team and there really isn't a doubt about it. From the outset, McElwain was pretty blunt about how far the offense was behind the defense and how this spring was going to be developmental more than anything else. They went back to...

New Belgium Cocoa Molé Chocolate Porter

Back in black with a rich, tasty, incredibly flavorful porter. Seasonal drinking and what not, but you know the old saying about dark beers: once you go dark, you drinking becomes a lark. I made that up and it was terrible. I have no regrets. Anyways, I saw this 22-oz bottle a few times at a couple of places before I finally gave in and picked one up a couple weeks back. I've never had a bad experience with New Belgium's Lips of Faith series -- in the winter I tried their salted chocolate stout seasonal and it was exquisite. The cult classic returns! Chocolate, cinnamon and chilies combine...

Midweek Recap: LSU Blanks Tulane, 6-0

LSU is ranked number 1 heading into the series of the season against Texas A&M, and just for good measure, they blanked the Greenies. All is right with the universe. On a special note, LSU wore custom batting helmets and sweatbands for the #GeauxTeal campaign to raise awareness for prostate cancer. Tulane tries to contribute by wearing powder blue jerseys and pants, which aren't teal no matter what Jim Hawthorne says. So thanks for the effort Greenies, but you really mailed it in and now nobody is aware of prostate cancer. Good job. THE PITCHING Nine pitchers took the mound Tuesday night,...

GAMETHREAD: Tulane (24-15) vs. LSU (34-6), 6:30pm, SECN+

LSU takes a break from Southland conference play to host MOST HATED RIVAL. This is about as big as a regular season week gets. Before we play host this year's BASEBALLAMANIA and our title matchup A&M, we have to play our good friends Tulane. LSU is ranked #1 in every single poll following A&M's dropped series against Arkansas, and don't look now but LSU has won 11 of their last 12 games. Chris Chinea will be playing following the gruesome HBP he took on the chin (You could say he took it on the CHIN-EA! PUNS!) and will be catching balls from Austin Bain (0-1, 3.29). Bain won't last long...

LSU Establishes Fund to Support Nick Brossette and Family

Nick Brossette's older brother Mendel Esnault tragically passed away and LSU established a fund to help ease their financial burdens. Some sad news here from LSUSports.net: The Brossette Family Fund has been established by LSU to assist Nick Brossette’s family with essential living expenses due to the unexpected death of his older brother Mendel Esnault. Brossette's brother was the primary provider for the family, which leaves them income-less all while their mother battles cancer. The loss of a family member is always an exceptional burden to bear, not to mention doing so while your...

And The Valley Projects: Week 9 - BASEBALLAMANIA

The Aggies are coming, and they're angry. As much as I hate to say it, our glorious leader was actually right for a change: *LSU pins NEB for the 1-2-3* *sees A&M at the top of the ramp for the next match* *points to Wrestlemaina sign* — Pod KATT (@valleyshook) March 8, 2015 Congrats PK. For your Nostradamus-like insight, you get to have me make a wrestling reference. MULTIPLE Wrasslin' References!

Spring Football Five Things: South Carolina

Davis Williams of Garnet and Black Attack fills us in on LSU's other eastern division opponent in 2015, the South Carolina Gamecocks. 1. What was the general mood surrounding the team as spring practice came to a close for South Carolina? It was a general mood of uncertainty exiting the spring but that doesn't mean there weren't positives. Injuries and the fact that there are still players yet to arrive led to that. The Gamecocks were working with five to six offensive lineman for much of the spring so because of that it was hard to even see what the offensive line will look like or how to...

Four Star Shooting Guard Brandon Sampson Commits to LSU

Four star Baton Rouge native elects to stay home. Play it again, Johnny. Baton Rouge native and four-star top 100 prospect Brandon Sampson committed and signed to LSU this morning. Sampson is a former St. John's commit who recently reopened his process after the firing of Steve Lavin. Jones and staff deftly swooped in and convinced the prospect that staying home was truly the best idea all along. Sampson joins what is now the nation's no. 1 recruiting class, jumping Kentucky,  along with signee Ben Simmons and Antonio Blakeney. It's truly a remarkable talent grab for Johnny Jones,...

Gym Loses, Everything Sucks

No sugar coating: that was a very bad loss Stony Brook. 21-0. Temeka Johnson's turnover. Bobby Knight's comeback. The beam in 2015. When the great disappointments of LSU sports history are recorded, this one is going to rank right up there. An LSU team that had been ranked in the top three all year, looking for its third straight Super Six, and a legitimate threat to win the national didn't even make the Super Six. LSU fell not once, not twice, by three times on the beam on Friday night, dooming any chances of advancement. LSU finished behind Auburn and Nebraska, two teams it had beaten...

LSU Spring Game Postscript Thoughts...

I think everybody more or less got what they wanted. It looked like the Saturday of the spring game would be kind of dreary, with the game somewhat in peril. I don't mind saying that I had absolutely no intentions of watching a spring game in the rain. Luckily, I was able to line up a press box credential, so it wasn't an issue. Fittingly, I wound up sitting with Cody Worsham and James Moran of Tiger Rag, who are both good guys. We were just a Matt DeVille and a Greg LaRose from a full-on reunion. Anyways, with the first(ish) team offense putting up some 505 yards of offense, including 356...

Edwin Alexander Commits...Again

Once a commit back in 2013, the 5-star, top 20 recruit has re-committed to the Tigers With the rain parting ways for LSU to get its spring game festivities in, the staff welcomed the assist from Mother Nature to secure a commitment once again from 2016 defensive tackle Edwin Alexander. Initially a commit in 2013 following the Texas A&M game, Edwin opened things up just slightly in order to make sure he had made the right decision. Extended time around Coach O was all that was needed and Alexander became the lone commitment (so far) from the weekend. Becoming the fourth defensive commit in...
