Takeaways from LSU's 30-27 Win Over Florida
LSU edged out 30-27 win in a nail biter against Florida on Saturday (10.12) night. The nail biter was LSU’s first SEC win, and handed the troubled squad some momentum as they eye tough match ups against Alabama, Ole Miss, Arkansas, and Texas A&M in the weeks ahead. Top Freshman recruit Leaonard Fornette looked as if he is coming into his own as did the defense. QB Anthony Jennings did not.
Saints Buc' Up, Eke Out OT Win 37-31 v. Tampa
A 1 and 3 Saints came home to the dome today looking for a turnaround win in the comfort of home. They had the right opponent: the equally woeful (1 and 3) Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The game was sloppy, both teams looked poor, and again the Saints found themselves battling in overtime again. This time the Black ’n Gold eked out a 37 to 31 win, but did not make the statement that was needed.
Out Tigered: LSU Throttled by Auburn 41-7
Defense Once Again Thwarted by Spread
LSU came into Jordan-Hare Stadium nine point underdogs against the Other Tigers of Auburn. Freshmen Brandon Harris, Leonard Fournette, and Malachi Dupre were saddled with the weight of leading the Purple & Gold against the SEC West team. The game was daunting but filled with hope for the future. That hope was quickly dashed and LSU was throttled 41-7. It is going to be a long fall in Baton Rouge.
Boards Game: Pelicans Unveil New Court
The Pelicans are not afraid of change. The NBA franchise has had three names in total. They introduced a new mascot. Five months later, they changed his look under the pretense of reconstructive surgery. Now, the team is unveiling a new age court.
Slaughterhouse: Cowboys Embarrass Saints 38-17
Going into Sunday night’s matchup, Dallas had not defeated New orleans in Texas in nearly 23 years. That streak was decidedly crushed tonight. The Saints’ season is now in dire straits after a 38-17 drubbing pushed the Black ’n Gold to 1-3 on the season.
Pelicans Add 3 to Training Camp Roster
Coming off a 2013-14 season stunted by injuries, the Pelicans are loading up on players this year. On Friday (9.27), the team announced the addition of three journeymen to their training camp roster. Kevin Jones, Dionte Christmas, and Vernon Macklin will be vying to make the final cut for NOLA’s NBA franchise.
Pelicans Unveil Red Alt Jerseys
The Pelcians start training camp in a week. This means that NOLA's troubled NBA franchise is undefeated. It also means that it's time forthe team to roll out their novelty or alternative jersey. Tioday (9.23), the Pelicans unveiled a red jersey that will be worn during four games this season beginning with opening night on versus Orlando Magic on October 28th..
Saints Pick Up First Win in Dome Opener Against Vikings: 20-9
The Saints opened the Superdome for the season in dire need of a win to make it 1 and 3. They did not deliver a show-stopper but achieved what was necessary, beating the Minnesota Vikings 20-9. There were few fireworks involved for either team despite Brees continuing several streaks and an injury finally giving Minnesota’s much ballyhooed rookie Teddy Bridgewater the helm.
Miss'd Opportunity: QB Controversy as LSU Beaten By Unranked Miss St 34-29
For weeks, Saturday’s game at Tiger Stadium has been billed as the “real home opener.” The 34-29 result bodes poorly for the remainder of the season. Despite a late surge to make score close, LSU was thoroughly outplayed. More worrisome, a resounding exclamation point was placed on the quarterback controversy.Leonard Fournette was not a factor, but Josh Robinson certainly was. Les Miles and Cam Cameron left only questions but Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen answered them all.
Quarter Horses Want More Than a Fraction of the Purse
Over at the Fair Grounds, there is pandemonium with the ponies’ purses. A group of Louisiana quarter horse owners, trainers, and jockeys have filed a lawsuit demanding a bigger piece of the pie. However, one man’s gain is another man (or horse's) loss, and the litigation means that the prizes in thoroughbred races will be lessened.
