All the "sometimes 5 stars bust and 2 stars are all-americans" and "coaching is what really matters" type comments aside, you ca...

It seems like LSU is going to have a top 3 recruiting class based on the number of top recruits left that are likely to head there, but why are there so many still uncommitted?

I haven't been keeping track of Maryland, but someone on the SECR just mentioned that they are doing poorly. So, I decided to check in and...yikes.

Before the "keep it classy" message from LSU admins came out this week, I was unaware that LSU had traditional songs and chants at games. So, I decided to do some research in to what these chants were.
Apparently each chant has 2 parts: monotonous grumblings (ha ha ha ha or ooooooooo) and then sc...

Our defense is awful, but I think we tighten up somewhat back at home. The most points they've put up against a legit opponent so far was 31 against Washington St (ranked #68 defense). They also only put up 38 on Arky St (ranked #97 while in the Sun Belt) and that included a last minute TD. All of t...

At this point in the season, it's pretty much a given that A&M's only shot at the SECG is Bama losing to both LSU (decent shot) and Auburn (less likely). In order for Auburn to pull that off, they absolutely need to be at 100% health.
With that in mind, does A&M take it easy on the barners and pu...
