Everyone remembers the Auburn games of 1969 and 1988, but another to note was the 1972 night game. Both LSU and Auburn were unbeaten. In fact, Auburn lost no other game that year. LSU didn't lose until the ninth game at Birmingham. In the first half, Bert Jones was unbelievable. The final was 3...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Anybody See a Football Game in Tiger Stadium with No Upper Decks? - LCTigers69 on 3/15/13 at 4:11 pm|
I'm sure that the home games were always a 7:30 p.m. start ... unless national or regional tv was involved.
One of the most unusual start times I can remember was the Thanksgiving night (1973) game against Alabama ... a 5:45 p.m. start. ...

South end zone for many years (1969-77). First game ever for me was the 21-20 Auburn game, and the last was a home win over Mississippi State in 1977. In 1978, the west upper deck opened for the Indiana game. ...

When Paul Dietzel returned as AD in 1979 ... Mac's fate was sealed. Remember, when Dietzel left LSU for Army in 1962, he did not recommend McClendon as his successor. It's no secret that the 2 men did not get along ... 2 very different personalities. Mac almost took a job at KY, but was given a p...

Joe B. Hall
Brown got along o.k. with Eddie Sutton from his Arkansas days, but the rivalry with Hall and Pitino was the real deal.
The "jacket" game was in 1978 at brand new Rupp Arena. The next 2 years, however, LSU beat KY at Rupp.

Woodley would often start games ... the veteran back-up who came in and rescued a lot of games was Don Strock.
Woodley's last game as a starter in Miami was at NO Saints in 1983. Marino took over in that game and for a long time thereafter. Woodley ended up being trade...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Were the uniform changes permanent ? - LCTigers69 on 1/13/13 at 10:25 pm|
Uniforms and helmets of the 1960's and 70-71 were simple but classy. Yes, even with numbers on helmets and without names on back. A by-gone era, I know. This game pictured is from 1970. Former Mac assistant Bill Beall was the Baylor head coach.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Loudest games in LSU history. - LCTigers69 on 1/12/13 at 11:45 pm|
The 1979 game vs. USC is always mentioned and with good reason ... probably the loudest. A game not talked about as much was the "fog game" against FSU in 1982.
Prior to the stadium expansion (pre-1978) ... these are the games I remember as loudest:
Notre Dame '71
Ole Miss ...

Auburn's only loss in 1972 was to LSU, 35-7. I attended that game at Tiger Stadium. One could argue it was one of LSU's best played games ever under McClendon. Jones had a terrific game. For whatever reason, LSU seemed to play some of its best games against Auburn (1969, 1970, 1972, 1973) during...

I thought they switched to the veer in '75 ... any way, it was a 1-year experiment only. Mac went back to the I-formation the next season, and Robiskie had a big year.
The LSU uniforms in that '67 film ... those of that era ... were simple, but classy. I'd love to see the current team wear the ...

Is he up to the job? If this is finally the Vols hire, it is an "underwhelming" one. Big step up from UC to UT. However, if he works out, nobody will remember all this mess of the last few days. If he doesn't ... well, that's another story.
Tuberville and Petrino were better options, IMO.
