Jermon Bushrod Leaves Saints for Chicago Bears
Breesus lost one of his top protectors to free agency on Tuesday. Offensive lineman Jermon Bushrod, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, was signed by the Chicago Bears to a five-year deal. After entering the open market after the Saints didn't immediately re-sign him, the 315-pound left tackle was snapped by Da Bears on the NFL's first day of free agency signing.
LSU Tigers, Mettenberger's Mustache Set to Face Auburn on the Road
by Christopher Rinaldi
The LSU Tigers will march into Auburn to kickoff SEC play on Saturday (6:05 p.m. kickoff). LSU heads into the game ranked second in the country and holding a 3-0 record. Auburn is a struggling team that showed it's not up to par with the top tier of the nation, after opening the year witha loss to Clemson and falling to Mississippi State in their second game. However, Auburn picked up their first win of the season last week against UL-Monroe
LSU's Jefferson, Randle Combine Sprints Combined
Defying all better judgement, LSU's former (sometimes) quarterback, Jordan Jefferson, is trying to make it to the promised land of the NFL, a mystical place where everyone has scores of sneakers, and underperforming players regularly trash their coaches and teammates. So, today, JJ joined fellow Tiger, Reuben Randle at the NFL Combine, and ran some sprints.
VA Tech Struggles to Sell Sugar Bowl Seats
Bowl games are controversial to begin with. The Sugar Bowl became a bit more contentious because the traditional SEC team is not represented this year. (But,, hey, we got two in the BCS... in 'da dome; so, we won't gripe too much.) However, the touchy topic just got worse as Virginia Tech reported that they have not sold out their allotment of 17,500 tickets. In fact they have only sold about 10,000. Another 4000 will be purchased by the school and ACC, and then given away to military personnel. Still, a defecit of 3500 remains. The Washington Post has more details.
Brian Wilson Geauxs to Death Valley
San Francisco Giants closer, Brian Wilson has never forgotten his school years at LSU... neither has his beard. Wilson remains a devout Tigers fan, and the Advocate reports that Wilson was spotted yesterday in Baton Rouge enthusiastically cheering on the Bayou Bengals. Buddies of the Beard may remember that the AllStar was last spotted at the 'Bama game, donning a full LSU uniform (pictured,) playing the trumpet on ESPN, and making outrageous picks of other SEC games. (He picked Vandy over Florida explaining, "I'm a huge fan of sea captains. I'm gonna have to go with the Commodores.")
This time, Wilson stuck to cheering, keeping it tame... well except the beard...
Beating Around the Bush
When rising waters are causing some concern down at NoDef HQ, we turn to New Orleans' favorite Heisman Trophy winner (& loser,) Reggie Bush to offer some relaxation. As you may remember, in our last episode, Bush had begun to alienate himself with fans through a series of tweets implying that his time in NOLA was at an end, not to mention professing his joy that the labor situation had allowed him to skip practice. Today, we turned again to his twitter to discover that RB spent much of yesterday bickering with ESPN's Skip Bayless,
Brees Breaks It Down
A week later, we must admit that returning to normalcy in WhoDat Nation is not as much fun as last year's road to Lombardi Gras. Still, we were able to tune into an interview that Breesus gave in San Diego! and find some consolation. The gridirron god discusses, the saints relative success compared to other defending champions, and the future. He also offers his picks on the playoffs (Pats v. Pack or Falcons.) Highlights here.
When Robert Johnson went down to the Crossoroads, he discovered that Les Miles already beat him there. LSU's 8-1 record despite their Miles' bumbling is surely the product of some deal with the devil, but now, we are getting lagniappe from Lucifer. Our solitary loss comes at the hands of Auburn who are embroiled in scandal surrounding QB, Cam Newton, cheating, and pay-to-play. Now, there is talk that Auburn may be forced to forfeit their wins, making LSU undefeated.
Converting in the Red Zone
Saints Bar Review: American Sector
Standing in a crowded bar, your black and gold shirt rubbing against others as each swig of a Bud Light puts an elbow in your eye and each touchdown puts armpits in your nose is one way to watch Monday Night Football. Last Monday, I experienced another way at the World War 2 Museum.
