[quote]Who in the heck is Lionel Williams?[/quote]
Williams was on the team last year. He redshirted. He is a RB from Virginia. He is now listed as a safety. He was unranked on Rivals out of HS. If he compares to Chad Jones, he must be a major surprise. I don't know if he is on scholarship o...

I have a friend who knows the Patterson family. He says the family is unhappy with LSU. Apparently Shea is interested in LSU, but the coaching staff is "slow playing" him and has yet to offer.
I don't know why LSU is hesitating. Patterson appears to be a really good prospect. Has a great ar...

I love Hickey, but he cost us several close games this season by holding for the last shot and throwing up a clunker!
He also had a problem driving to the basket once the defense was set. He didn't have the ability to fake, double pump, use left hand, etc. to deceive the shot blockers and accu...

Mainieri over coaching, like he usually does. Everybody that beats LSU leaves their starters in as long as they can go.
In baseball, you stay with the hot hitters, the hot pitchers. Why pull a pitcher who is pitching well and replace him with someone who may or may not be on his game that day? ...

Am I missing something? Why are teams able to mug LSU down low, especially O'Bryant, but LSU barely touches the opponent and a foul is called?
That is not why LSU lost today! Florida is as advertised and Donovan is by far the best coach in the SEC including Calipari. But the refs are making it...

Ok, I'm a little pumped! But I'm not taking back anything I said. Time will show just how good this class is. The whole SEC is just getting better. Six schools in the top 10 in this year's class. But for sure, LSU will compete in a large way!...

Mainieri says the Tigers will be short handed with 4 pitchers nursing injuries or sickness as spring practice starts.
I counted the number of pitchers on the roster and there were 20. Doesn't sound like to me they will be hurting too bad. Let's just say that some of the walk-ons or lesser known...

| Tiger Rant|| Tigers leaving early is killing LSU - LSU2THEMAX on 1/13/14 at 12:13 pm|
Last year, losing defensive players probably cost LSU a real chance at the NC.
This year, losing offensive players will make a NC next season very difficult if not impossible.
LSU is still getting great talent, but it very rare for a true freshman to contribute at max level until he gets at le...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| What La recruit have we lost in the past who was most successful? - LSU2THEMAX on 12/30/13 at 11:13 pm|
Joe McKnight, Landon Collins, Greg Robinson, Travon Reed, Eddie Lacy, others.
Some of these loses were horrific for LSU fans, but none of these went on to super stardom. Lacy was probably the most successful and looks like the real deal in the NFL.
What say you?...

Just realized that all of the losses by the Tigers last season and this one were highlighted by late 4th Q drives where the LSU defense failed to keep the opponent from scoring the winning points.
