Chip Kelly the lone reasonable post-Miles plan for LSU

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

Lil' Jon has a song called "Get Outta Your Mind," and if I didn't know better I would assume it is the favorite tune of members of the LSU Board of Supervisors who are intent on making this Les Miles' final year in Baton Rouge despite the fact it will ...

Let me tell ya: It does rain at Tiger Stadium

Monday, September 7th, 2015

In a state as deeply religious as Louisiana -- even public schools still have an invocation before high school football games -- you'd assume there would be a reticence to tempt fate with the man upstairs. But the one true church is LSU football, and Tiger Stadium is the state's ...

LSU football: Tigers to Hire Cam Cameron as offensive coordinator

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Among the moreĀ bizarreĀ rumors we've been hearing over the past few weeks was the story that LSU head football coach Les Miles was courting Cam Cameron to run the team's offense. Honestly, I heard this about two weeks ago and dismissed it out of hand as a bit of a weird ...

College basketball: Who will be the last unbeaten standing?

College Football: Week three in memes

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Enjoy week three of college football in meme form. And remember that your team could have been one of the ones who were upset this weekend. Or blown out by Fresno State. Or somehow let the game end up in the hands of Indiana's awful defense so they ended up ...
