Tigers' Time: LSU's Big Signing Day


LSU had a monster Signing Day on Wednesday (2.03). Rummel's Kristian Fulton, as well as IMG's Savion Smith and DrakeDavis have been dominating headlines for months, but from top to bottom, the 2016 class is a best. In fact, the Tigers placed in the top three of nearly every ranking of recruiting classes. (Unfortunately, so did Alabama). 


Tiger TV


LSU baseball takes the mound in about a month and there will be plenty of opportunity to watch the Purple n’ Gold. For the second year running, all 56 of the team’s regular season games will be televised. (The post-season will, of course, also be televised, but that run has been short for the Tigers in the past two years).


Payton Presser Payoff?


The 2015 Saints raised a lot of questions about the franchise’s future. Social media went into overdrive with debates about Breesus, C.J. Spiller, the O-line (or lack thereof), and Rob Ryan. However, the number one question was the fate of coach Sean Payton. Today, Payton offered a definitive answer during his year-end press confeerence. NoDef live-blogged the event as a (almost) emotional Payton gushed about his love of NOLA. Click through for highlights.


ESPN: Payton Ready To Leave


A (black and) golden era for the Saints may be drawing to a close. ESPN’s Adam Scheffer reported that Sean Payton and the team are taking the first steps towards an amicable split.


Sign On The 50 Yard Line

LSU Recruits Announce Decisions At Under-Armour All-America Game



Football’s television spectacle now extends to the high school level. Today, the nation’s top high school players travelled to Florida to play in the annual Under Armour All-America game. Several of the player announced their college commitments in televised segments during the game. Needless to say, the LSU coaching staff was paying close attention.


Rubber Souls


During the Battle of New Orleans, Andrew Jackson did everything but run away from the British. Still, this weekend, New Orleanians will mark the victory by jogging (or walking in some cases). The 109th Jackson Day Race is slated for Sunday (1.03).


Pour Some Sugar On Me


Once again, a pair of automobiles are position in a staged crash at the lot where Decatur Street meets North Peters Street. A celebration of wrecks can only mean that it is time again for the Allstate insurance sponsored Sugar Bowl. Ex-pats from Mississippi will be thrilled with the matchup, but all fans of football will be pleased with the hoopla surrounding the game.


Sack of Goal

Davis Shines, But Pels Feel the Heat in OT Loss



Christmas:NBA::Thanksgiving:NFL. And today, the Pelicans played in their first December 25th game. Ultimately, the Birds lost a heartbreaker to the Orlando Heat 94-88 in overtime.


LSU's Special "Cajun Night Before Christmas"


A recent addition to Louisiana’s storied catalogue of sports traditions is the annual reading of Trosclair’s classic, The Cajun Night Before Christmas.” This year, the honors fell to LSU place-kicker Colby Delahoussaye.


Black to the Future


The holidays are generally billed as a season of light, but Sports Illustrated picked today to run a piece about one of NOLA’s darker times—literally. The sports standard published one of the more in-depth looks at da Dome’s blackout during Super Bowl XLVII.
