Kevin Faulk was sensational. No question. He was also very lucky that Cecil Collins suffered a broken leg in his fourth game. Kevin wasn't starting when the Diesel was healthy. Kevin wouldn't have had the stats he accumulated if Cecil had continued to be the starter. Was Cecil the 2nd best football ...

The name you're searching for is Alan Faneca. !3 years in the NFL. Nine years chosen for the pro bowl. Nine years All Pro. The guys he was blocking were black or white. He blocked 'em all. He was the best offensive guard in the league. At one point he was the highest paid offensive lineman in the NF...

this is hard. I've seen so many. But Cannon for 89 yards for the TD and then Cannon and Rabb stop Doug Elmore at the one. Hard to beat that one '58. The game in Alabama in '82 when Dalton Hilliard sent "The BEAR" into retirement was delicious too. The first 62-0 game. 6-0 at the half.

No not even close. I posted on Sept 2. Magee reminds me of Dalton Hilliard. Hilliard was the most successful pro back ever to come out of LSU. Look up his statistics. They're built the same. They're scorers. Very similar. I made that post after seeing him once. The coaches should have been playing h...

Be careful what you wish for. If there's any way Slive can slide Bama in the back door he'll do it. If Auburn beats Mizzou Bama's probably toast but Slive will do most anything to help Bama....

Terrance Magee reminds me of the best running back i've ever seen play at LSU. Dalton Hilliard was the man. Probably too long ago for 80% of current members but he was great - about the same size as Magee and would find a hole in the defense and burst through it. This guy needs to be on the field....

To miss wreck location, leave I49 in South Shreveport turning West on Hwu 3132. It's 4 lanes w/ no traffic lights. Go about 7 miles - leave 3132 at West 70th (well marked) going west. Watch for sign directing you to turn north toward I20. (about three or four miles. This bypasses wreck location....

I don't know if Faneca's best year was any better than his worst year. He was so dominant it would be hard to choose. But he should be in this list.
The other missing player IMO is Johnny Robinson. He was all AFL six years in a row and then came back to be named to that team three more times. KC ...

Daniel Sandifer (March 1, 1927 – August 15, 1987), was an American football defensive back who played from 1948 to 1953. Because of WWII, he was one of the few college football players to play in two College All-Star Games.
Sandifer was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the 1948 NFL Draft out o...

1944 vs GaTech
My father and uncle took me with a last minute decision. I was 6. Bobby Dodd was a big time coach then for Ga Tech. They were in the SEC back then. Tech won 14-6, but it wasn't that close. I think Gaynell Tinsley was LSU's coach but not sure. I didn't see another one until 1956, when...

Good post. Better than anyone else's. Nola was hot and until something changed the tone of the game, small ball was going to be the way this game was to be won. Bregman is the ONLY batter I would have considered having hit away. I imagine Maineri considered the bunt - he doesn't miss much. Good thi...

Funny you mention Kevin Faulk. He WAS a good back, and a very good 3rd down back in the pros. BUT There was a time tho his junior year when he couldn't get on the field - Cecil Collins. But he hung in and when the Diesel went down he was there. Lets hope they both stay healthy and play....

CBS says there is every good chance that LSU ends up in a BCS game. That's what I said. However there's a limit of how many from a conference can receive a bid.

As an SEC team Unless Aub (30 pt dog) wins -NO. If Aub wins, A&M wins out and LSU wins out -maybe. The top 10 listing below says if just the right things happen (FSU over FLA et al) even if Bama wins over Aub and GA- LSU could slide in the top eight i.e. BCS and get in the backdoor.

Also back in the day of players going both ways, there were fewer starters so - more career backups. Players like ...

Emmert was into academics. The athletic program was a means to an end for him. He had done it before successfully. Hiring Saban was a good decision, but just part of his plan for the University. When Gov Blanco slashed his budget to push more money to ULL she might as well have fired him. He had had...
