How To Football: Week Four

How To Football: Week Four

How to watch guys be dudes this weekend. WatsonTiger Excel Productions, LLC. Waitin’ All Week For Thursday Night Shift Tulsa at Temple is the only college football game on Thursday. Sure man, why not. National Champion Respecting Shift God, if you told me three years ago that FAU-UCF was going to be one of the funnest matchups of the weekend between Lane Kiffin and the defending national champion I think I’d pull a muscle laughing at you. But here we are, and it’s a thing that will be on ESPN major. Harvard at Brown kicks off alongside it, and Penn State gets a...

Film Room: LSU Punched Auburn in the Mouth and it Felt Good

Film Room: LSU Punched Auburn in the Mouth and it Felt Good

I like it when we beat Auburn. At the school I coach, we run a bastardized Canadian version of Dave Aranda’s defense. When I rewatch the film after an LSU game, not only do I watch for who played well on LSU but I look at some of the concepts Aranda ran and what adjustments he made throughout the game. I may be an ignoramus but I watched Saturday’s walk off win against Auburn again and really saw the same thing for four quarters. Auburn punched LSU in the mouth. And then LSU punched Auburn in the mouth. And then they hit us. And then we hit them. This is how Dave Aranda has played Gus...

Playin’ Nice: Underdog Dynasty

Playin’ Nice: Underdog Dynasty

Underdog Dynasty’s Tanner Spearman gives us some information on the Tigers’ second in-state opponent on the year. 1. Tech’s had just two games on the year, a narrow win over South Alabama and a blowout win over Southern. What’s your feel for this team in that small sample size? Well like you said, it’s a small sample size, so it’s hard to tell. Most probably see beating South Alabama by only four as a disappointment, even on the road. The offense looked suspect outside of running back Jaqwis Dancy in the first half. The offense looked much better against Southern, but it should...

Delusional Optimism is Just Getting Started

Delusional Optimism is Just Getting Started

It ain’t even October. There’s a famous anecdote about Herb Brooks and the 1980 US hockey team. The Miracle on Ice did not win the gold medal, the US still had a game against Finland which they had to win in order to win the gold. According to the story, he walked in the locker room before the game and simply said, “If you lose this game, you will take it to your graves.” That is sort of where LSU is right now. Beating Auburn is great. Beating Auburn on a last second field goal is even better. Beating Auburn so that they cry about how the officiating in Jordan-Hare is unfair is...

Better Know a Freshman: Dantrieze Scott

Better Know a Freshman: Dantrieze Scott

Gifted athlete is extra raw. Gambling on high upside prospects is a vintage tactic in recruiting. Coaches are always looking for untapped potential, and it’s not uncommon that a player with elite athletic ability never emerges as an elite football prospect. Perhaps the athlete is new to the sport, or perhaps he plays for a program without resources to get him exposure. Perhaps he plays light competition and perhaps he just never really did the things he should to put himself in that position. There’s plenty of explanations and it’s typically these types of guys that turn into Khalil...

LSU 22, Auburn 21: Post-Game Review

LSU 22, Auburn 21: Post-Game Review

Tigers hold on through the roller coaster ride for a landmark victory. LSU walked into Jordan-Hare Stadium, landed the first punch, took Auburn’s best counter and then had the last laugh for a landmark win. And yes, when you can beat your second top-10 team in just 14 days, with what may have been the first walk-off field goal in regulation in school history, that’s a landmark. This team may have grown up on Saturday. We’ll see how that continues as we hit the meat of LSU’s schedule in October. And what does it say that TWO top-10 opponents doesn’t constitute the hard part of...

Eating With Ed, Week 4 - La Tech

Eating With Ed, Week 4 - La Tech

Coming off an exciting 22-21 win against the Auburn Tigers, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron met with the media Monday. Obviously one of the most major issues addressed was the Drake Davis situation, as the wide receiver was arrested on battery yet again Saturday. Davis was first arrested on Aug. 17, which led to an indefinite suspension. Of course Orgeron had to give a vague answer, saying it was a “legal matter” that he declined to comment on. He gave a similar answer in regards to the Ingram suspension. Also in regards to vague matters, Orgeron can’t comment on four-star defensive...

LSU QB Joe Burrow Talks Tumble Over Auburn Fence

LSU QB Joe Burrow Talks Tumble Over Auburn Fence

LSU starting quarterback Joe Burrow isn’t afraid to take a hit, and has already told us multiple times that he’s “not a slider.” But it looks like opposing teams’ defenders aren’t the only thing he’s been running into lately. If you were watching last weekend’s thrilling LSU victory over Auburn, you probably didn’t miss the shot of Burrow falling head first over a fence. But in the event that you did, CBS Sports tweeted this footage of Burrow’s blunder. Fence - 1 Joe Burrow - 0 pic.twitter.com/QHKKLl3G8j— CBS Sports (@CBSSports) September 15, 2018 I caught up with...

Behind the Box Score: Auburn

Behind the Box Score: Auburn

The refs sure did a lousy job of conspiring against Auburn Sometimes, the box score lies. But it always tells a story, and the story the LSU-Auburn box score tells is one of two evenly matched teams playing a tough game that either team could have won. The box score passes no judgment, but this game really could have gone either way. 2. Auburn turnovers. LSU had a big fat 0 next to its name, and if you want a difference making stat, there it is. Jarrett Stidham threw two interceptions and Auburn was fortunate not to have another fumble added to that total. LSU took care of the football, and...

Link Gumbo: Davis Arrested Again

Link Gumbo: Davis Arrested Again

Tiger receiver picked up again for battery. Sunday morning would bring bad news for LSU as Drake Davis, who is currently away from the team on suspension, was arrested again. Davis had already been suspended from the university all together over the original incident. While the program hasn’t had much to say about Davis, it seems like a safe bet to suggest that LSU fans have probably seen the last of Davis. In better news, LSU went into Jordan-Hare as a 10 point dog and ended the longest home winning streak in college football. I am being cautious not to get too overly optimistic here,...

Cole Tracy’s Parents Have a Full Bar in Their House

Some players are born to be at LSU. LSU football’s official account tweeted this fun video of the Tracy family watching the final moments of yesterday’s classic between LSU and Auburn. Live from the Tracy house for @cole__tracy’s game winner. His dad, Kent, at the end: “HE DID IT” pic.twitter.com/CFzOO3ENPU— LSU Football (@LSUfootball) September 16, 2018 Cole would, of course, go on to be the game’s hero. That’s all well and good, but can we talk about the fully bar his parents have INSIDE THEIR HOUSE? Complete with slot machine? The Tracy family built a damn New...
