I know. I know. I should be focusing on baseball right now. But there is enough room in my brain to think about football too.
Just a little something to get your juices flowing: [link=(http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaaf-dr-saturday/looking-ahead-college-football-week-1-five-best-160801914.html)]...

Has anybody seen information on when the team arrives in Atlanta, where they will be staying, or other bowl-related scheduling? My son wants to go to the game and stay where the team will be. Just wondering if that information is public....
| Help Board|| Shreveport Times Links on the Front Page - The King on 7/30/12 at 8:26 am|
Is there are reason why there seem to be more links to the Shreveport Times than to the other local papers that cover LSU? It's my impression that just about every time I go to click on a story from the "Latest LSU News & Discussion" section of the front page, it's a link to Guilbeau (who, incidenta...
| Tiger Rant|| Is LSU Baseball Profitable? - The King on 6/15/12 at 7:59 am|
Just read the article on LSU's [link=(http://www.shreveporttimes.com/article/20120613/SPORTS0202/120613021/1028/sports0202)]baseball attendance[/link]. I had no idea our program was that dominant from a fan support perspective. This may be a dumb question, but with that level of attendance, does the...
| Tiger Rant|| When Is Fan Day? - The King on 3/2/12 at 12:50 pm|

Some of this article is obvious, but I thought y'all might appreciate the conclusion:
[quote]In a perfect world, Alabama's Trent Richardson and LSU's Tyrann Mathieu would both be awarded big bronze trophies Saturday night. But in the imperfect world we live in, the Heisman should go to Trent Rich...
| Tiger Rant|| Player Motivation: Miles v. Saban - The King on 11/6/11 at 1:20 pm|
Your freshman punter has never played in front of 100,000 screaming fans. He's on the road in the biggest game of his life. He is pinned back a the 9 yard line and kicking out of his end zone in the fourth quarter. Alabama smells blood, and you know they're sending the house. A blocked punt or safet...

The New Orleans king cake challenge has me down. Where do you get good king cakes in Houston? Here's what I've tried:
1. Central Market -- no good. Dry, flavorless. Too bready. (grade d).
2. Moeller's Bakery -- surprisingly good. moist, excellent cinnamon flavor (sort of has bite). I gi...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Miles's Comments on the "Size" of This Class - The King on 2/3/11 at 3:10 pm|
A friend sent me this supposed quote from Miles at yesterday's bash describing this recruiting class: "This class gives us a nice balance of speed, ball skills, strength, [i]ball size[/i]."
I haven't verified it, but I really want it to be an actual quote. Anyone hear him say it?...

Q: "Coach, you were mentioned in an article last week as being on the short list of coaches for the Colorado job. Just interested in your reaction to that."
A: "Someone has to write articles, someone has to include names. I have no real reaction to it."
Not an exact quote, but pretty close...

I was where DD reported that all of the 2009 recruits are actually eligible to enroll and play at LSU. That seems like a pretty unusual accomplishment these days. Hat's off to the coaching staff to making their scholarship offers count....

| Tiger Rant|| Next Year's Schedule - The King on 11/30/09 at 7:47 am|
This looks to be the toughest schedule that LSU has played in a long time. I realize that a lot can change between now and next year, but I am wondering whether it is realistic to expect better than 9-3 even if the team improves significantly on offense....
