LSU Alums Hill and Backham Golden in NFL


The Saints’ season is retro, evoking the paper bag era. And, LSU’s 8-4 record was a disappointment to most Tiger faithful. However, the purple and gold still provided a reason to watch the NFL on a Sunday even when the struggling Saints are playing on Monday. LSU alumni and pro rookies Jeremy Hill and Odell Beckham, Jr. posted an impressive Sunday (12.14.)


Committees Dish Bowl: Wolf Pack, OSU, Tide Rolling to Dome, LSU to Nashville


Despite, a disappointing season for SoLa in both pro and college football, there are still bowl games to look forward to. LSU was gifted the opportunity to finish the season in style. The Ragin’ Cajuns have found an appointment for their annual romp in da Dome, and it looks ‘Bama will be back in town in 2015.


Orion Blasts Louisiana Back to Space


By Ashley Larsen

Today, millions of Americans watched as the Orion spacecraft was launched into the sky from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, but what most people didn’t know is that it carried a lot of Louisiana with it. Both the capsule and a piece of the payload can lay claim to roots on the bayou.


SEC Joins Campaign Against Sexual Assault on Campus (Video)


The Southeastern Conference (SEC) actually involves much more than athletics. Today, the conference tooks steps to address one of the larger problems at any university. LSU and the 13 other SEC schools have partnered up with the White House’s “It’s On Us” campaign to fight sexual assault on campus. Today, the initiative rolled out a different kind of advertisement which will become a staple during Tigers’ games.


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.
