LSU's Les Miles Talkin' 2014 Tigers


Whether it has the green light or not, college football is ready to return. This week, SEC coaches and luminaries gathered in Hoover, Alabama, to address the press in the annual Media Days circus. Shortly after, players will begin practice, and then actual games. As LSU Head Coach Les Miles describes it, “we’re getting ready for getting ready." On Wednesday (7-16), the Mad Hatter took to the podium and noted that this week is “1200 credentials and a lot of chaos.”

Decision Day for 5 LSU Recruits at Under Armour Game


Updated 6 p.m.

The Under Armour All-America Game, which showcases the nation's top high school football standouts, is playing out on the field in Orlando. But the action in the booth is of far more interest to LSU fans. Five of the Fighting Tigers Football team's top recruits are announcing where they'll take their talents next year. NoDef is following the action:


LSU's Odell Beckham Jr. Wins Nat'l Award for Versatility


The LSU football team's championship dreams didn't come to fruition, but some of the Tigers' 2013 stars are still etching their names into the history books. On Thursday, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was named the winner of the Paul Hornung Award, which recognizes college football's most versatile player.


Jeryl Brazil No Longer on LSU Football Team


Yet another Tiger's run-ins with the law have cut his career short. The LSU football team dismissed a freshman running back who had numerous run-ins with the law. Jeryl Brazil was already suspended from the team following an arrest on Oct. 18.


Report: Mettenberger to Miss LSU's Bowl Game


Updated 1:30 p.m., 12.4

The LSU football team has to wait until Sunday to find out where they will go bowling. But Tiger fans will likely know the status of the injured starting quarterback sooner. ESPN is reporting that Zach Mettenberger tore his ACL during the Bayou Bengals' dramatic win over Arkansas on Friday, and will miss the team's bowl game. LSU plans to release an official update on Mettenberger Wednesday.


LSU Freshmen Connect to Snatch Boot from Arkansas, 31-27


by Chris Rinaldi

When Travin Dural crossed the goal line with 1:15 left in the 4th quarter, the LSU football team breathed a sigh of relief, welcoming a new era with a dramatic victory. In Friday's regular season finale at Tiger Stadium, the Bayou Bengals saw Odell Beckham Jr., two offensive lineman and senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger go down, only to overcome the injuries and a six-point fourth quarter defecit on the arm and legs of freshman quarterback Anthony Jennings. 


Les Miles' Thanksgiving Good to Last Bite (VIDEO)


The Mad Hatter was still in the midst of Lunch with Les on Monday afternoon, but, like many of us, he was already thinking about Thursday's dinner.

Miles Wades Through LSU's Ole Miss Meltdown


The LSU football team watched their national championship hopes drift away Saturday night as Ole Miss kicker Andrew Ritter split the uprights with a game-winning field goal from 41 yards away. With a rare second loss in November and an FCS opponent in Furman coming up, Head Coach Les Miles spent most of his "Lunch with Les" press conference, addressing the loss. For the most part, Miles looked no further than the podium when doling out the blame for the 27-24 loss in Oxford.
