He didn't make the trip, so the odds of him playing seem low

Valentine, a highly rated true freshman from Florida, has not played this season; he has not been ruled eli...

That would have been a bad loss, but it doesn't fit the thread. The D had back to back 3 and outs which led to 10 points for LSU. Then after the big play to Dural, they ...

You're not going to sell anybody on a coach with 2 straight 5-7 seasons. In fact, other than that run in 2012, 4 of his last 5 years were .500 or worse. No thank you...
