Sunday Morning Quarterback

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.


Moving Murals in the Red Stick


By Ashley Larsen

#Iammidcity. Tonight, Baton Rouge MidCity is hosting a unique community art event to celebrate the people and the character of Mid City. LSU students, enrolled in the 2014 Mid City studio class, are creating the architectural mural with the help of several businesses in Baton Rouge as well as The Walls Project. Friday's (10.10) soiree will be focusing on receiving input from the community on the project as well as raising support for the project.


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.


Brazile-an Facts: LSU to House Politico's Papers


Time to see how competitive James Carville is. Fellow local political strategist Donna Brazile just donated 32 boxes of political memorabilia documenting her involvement and career in Democratic politics to LSU libraries. A proud Kenner native and graduate of LSU, she was the first African American to campaign for the presidency and managed Al Gore’s presidential bid in 2000.


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.


LSU Rout SHS: Takeaways


LSU dismissed Sam Houston State with ease in their home-opener. A 56-0 scoreline provided testament to the route. The game produced lots of other gaudy numbers. Travin Dural had three receptions for 140 yards and three touchdowns. 584 yards for LSU. However, SHS is an FCS team; so, the margin was expected. LSU did learn some lessons from the game.


Game Night in Death Valley

What to Watch For: LSU v. Sam Houston State



Tonight, LSU takes on Sam Houston State. Who? Exactly. Powerhouse teams schedule these games so they can sort out issues like quarterback selection, snaps for rookies, and returning players shaking off the rust. Fortunately, the Tigers are a Les Miles team. So, by definition, they are burdened with all of these issues.


Les Stress

LSU Comes Back to Defeat Wisconsin 28-24, But Questions Abound



Over the last few years, Tiger faithful have grown accustomed to an awkward dance. The courting begins in summer. This year we have a legitimate quarterback. Les Miles' antics should reveled in; pass the grass. It peaks around SEC Media Day. Time to delight in the folky malapropisms and tales of Smacker Miles’ athleticism. Then, the season begins. Despite a come from behind 28-24 win in LSU’s opener vs Wisconsin, the band is playing that old familiar tune for the purple and gold. Once again, we’re doing a Cajun two step baffled by play calling and quarterback selection.


Les Miles Takes ALS Ice (& Grass) Challenge


Les Miles is no stranger to antics. Tiger devotees recall him rapelling for charity, his malapropisms, and especially his penchant for chewing grass. After today's scrimmage, the Mad Hatter adding another adventure to the legend. Miles took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge with his own personal twist.


SEC Network Ready for Liftoff


With college football season around the corner, the SEC Network is set to hit small screens for the first time Thursday (8-14). Debuting at 5 p.m. CST, the ESPN-backed TV station will feature Louisiana sports legends like the Manning family and Shaquille O'Neal for the opening program.
