What To Watch For: Auburn

What To Watch For: Auburn

Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports Time to put Harsin away I think all conventional wisdom would have LSU taking care of business here. Auburn is truly down bad, with a third string QB and all but a lame-duck coaching staff, Auburn is completely checked out. HOWEVER, this is LSU-Auburn, the game is on the Plains at night, and Joe Tess is on the call. Mayhem is crouched behind a trash can and this game is walking right by it. If LSU makes THIS carnival fun house notch on the schedule into a boring business trip, man will things truly be different under Kelly. WHEN LSU HAS...

Link Gumbo: White Out

They just look so clean | Photo by Dylan Buell/ Tua shouldn’t have played Hey folks, the big news of the day came from last night. And I’m not gonna go out of my way to show what happened to Tua (although Amazon Prime did in its broadcast), but this could be another major turning point in terms of player safety. It was vicious and scary and I only wish a full and healthy recovery for the young stud. There was a lot of build up going into the game of the next wave of superstars on display (a lot coming from that 2019 LSU/Bama game), and it was washed away by the...

Three Very Specific Predictions for LSU vs Auburn

Three Very Specific Predictions for LSU vs Auburn

Scott Clause-USA TODAY Sports The Tigers look to go 4-1 on the year. The LSU Tigers face a turmoil filled Auburn. The Tigers will look to improve to 4-1 as the season is set up nicely for some wins and hopeful bowl eligibility and maybe more. From third down efficacy, player props, team defense/offense numbers and more, we will have a little bit of everything as we enter this game. Today, we take a look at predicting three specific areas for the team. (All stats vis CFBSTATS) 1 Jayden Daniels will account for 3 Touchdowns We are starting out hot as Daniels has been...

Playing Dirty: Auburn

Playing Dirty: Auburn

Photo by Michael Chang/ Dar Wamn It’s finally time for LSU to play a REAL rivalry game! No more guessing if the team is good based on a meaningless blowout, this is what college football is all about. LSU-Auburn, where things are guaranteed to get weird. Here to break down all the wacky things going on on the Plains is Jack from College and Magnolia. No X’s and O’s here, just good old-fashioned smack talk. 1. Last year Auburn won its first game in Baton Rouge in 20 years. How many years do you think it will take to win there again after the school fires the coach...

Let’s Do Auburn a Favor

Let’s Do Auburn a Favor

He looks sad | Photo by Jonathan Bachman/ Need help getting rid of a coach you hate? We are here to help! Over the years, I have written some harsh words about Auburn. And I may have done some things in the name of rivalry I’m not proud of. I may or may not have cheered a building burning down. I once trash talked an old lady, but in my defense, she started it. I have rooted for Bama. See what you made me do, Auburn? I have hurled invective. I have laughed and yelled. I have smoked victory cigars in Tiger Stadium. I have charged the field to celebrate an Auburn...

5-Star Kaliya Lincoln Commits to LSU

5-Star Kaliya Lincoln Commits to LSU

LSU gymnastics lands a top target LSU’s 2024 class starts off with a cannon blast. After Oklahoma made the rounds with the announcement of two 5-star signees, the Tigers landed one of their own with Kaliya Lincoln. The WOGA gymnast is tied for the 12th-best recruit in the class of 2024 according to College Gym News, the only major college gymnastics recruiting ranking site. Lincoln began her Level 10 career in 2018 at Airborne Gymnastics in Santa Clara, CA. After an impressive 2019 with top 100 scores on all four events and in the all-around, Lincoln moved to World Olympic...

NFLSU Week 3 Recap

NFLSU Week 3 Recap

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports Are any of these teams good? The NFL season is three weeks in and the Philadelphia Eagles look like the league’s only good team which sucks because they have no LSU players. Let’s see what all the other teams did as they hopefully improve enough for a Tiger to lift the Lombardi this year. Steelers 17 at Browns 29 Jacob Phillips and Grant Delpit led the Browns with seven and six tackles respectively, with Phillips also notching a sack. Cade York missed another extra point, but this one was negligible. Had he not missed last week the...

Link Gumbo: Before the School Bus Edition

Jumping out of the gates this morning | Photo by John Korduner/Icon Sportswire via There is SEC football on tonight, jump around! Good morning, looks like offensive line cohesion is gonna be a long and winding road this year. News broke on Dellinger after the Kelly SEC teleconference. SI dives into who will replace him. USA today talks about the players we should know on the other side. I have no clue why they didn’t add a Diety this week, as Auburn Jesus is THRIVING in the chaos of their season. It would not shock me if the league approves Yella Man to ref this...

New Mexico Film Review: HOSS Y Jack

New Mexico Film Review: HOSS Y Jack

Michael Johnson, NOLA Getting Jack Bech more involved was a start, but they can do even more. So look, as I say 2-3 times a year, there is very little to break down when it comes to these layup games unless bad things happen. So while it is a bit boring, it is dramatically better than the alternative of me having something really interesting to write about after a game against New Mexico. A little boredom can be good! It’s good for a program to be able to grind a team into the machinery without anything interesting going down. Even when LSU had blowouts in layup...

Link Gumbo: FCR week

TJ Will not get to Play | John Reed-USA TODAY Sports Plains, Trains and Hurricanes I can feel it, in my plummmmbs. The more dire the Auburn situation looks, the more nervous I get about this game. We can see them running the ball in a slop fest and exposing our LB corps and D Line depth, right? We can see bad weather affecting our QB and his scrambling ability...ALL THE WHILE...their back up QB scrambles for just enough every time. Finally, I don’t feel like LSU has completely ironed out its run game, and we will need it. It will be tested and I hope we pass it. One...

SEC Scoreboard Wraparound: Week 4

SEC Scoreboard Wraparound: Week 4

The Return of the “Cupcake”! On a personal side note, I would like to give a shout out to my friend who was nice enough to give me and my fiancée tickets to the LSU-New Mexico game. My fiancée is still learning about sports and I enjoy teaching her about the different aspects of each sport. She is gradually picking up football, but it can be difficult, as there are so many little nuances of the game to try to explain. Especially since many of these things are all happening at the same time! But, like I said, she’s trying to learn and I like being the “sports Sherpa”...

Take a Look Tuesday: Week 4

It’s fall, y’all Welcome back to Take a Look Tuesday, a weekly look at what happened in the other games involving SEC teams. Some of these teams had a better start to the fall season than others. (Note: I remove sacks and sack yardage from rushes and rushing yardage when necessary to put stats in appropriate context.) Auburn 17 vs Missouri 14 OT Give a loss to both teams, they each deserve one. These teams spent almost the entire second half punting the ball back and forth before remembering that scoring points wins games. This game had one of the stupidest endings I’ve...

Playing Nice: Auburn

Playing Nice: Auburn

Time to look ahead to Auburn with our friends from College and Magnolia Well it’s Auburn week. Auburn’s riding a two-game winning streak over LSU at the moment. The Other Tigers absolutely kicked the crap out of LSU in 2020, and then they finally ended their 20-year losing streak in Baton Rouge last fall. But that was then and this is now and boy oh boy Auburn looks bad. Bryan Harsin looks to be a dead man walking, and the Tigers played an absolutely disgusting game against Mizzou on Saturday that I suppose somebody had to win. Joining us to preview this year’s edition...

Brunch with Brian: Auburn

Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports Coach Kelly previews his first trip to The Plains Brian Kelly met with reporters to preview LSU’s big trip to Auburn this Saturday and the daunting month of October as a whole. “We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us,” Kelly said. “This month will tell us a lot, right? We’ve got an SEC slate in front of us over the next four weeks, which will challenge us to a new level. We’ll certainly find out even more about our grit and what kind of football team this will continue to grow to be. We know where our issues are. It’s a team...
