Well, I guess that eliminates Kentucky, Louisville, Florida, Syracuse, Michigan State, Duke, Wichita State, Notre Dame, Michigan, Arizona, UCLA, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Texas, Wisconsin, Ohio State ... and numerous others ... where he will not be the guy!...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Which would you prefer? A PP7 or Billy Cannon Autographed Jersey? - LayupKing on 2/25/14 at 5:10 pm|
I don't see as much PP7 stuff around. Can't remember when I saw him at a signing function. Cannon seems to get around the state pretty well for a 76-year old who has had a heart attack and a stroke. He seems to enjoy the fellowship with the fans. Not saying Patrick doesn't. Just have not seen him an...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: 2014 Class - Commit with most upside - LayupKing on 2/13/14 at 3:23 pm|
If you watched Auburn play this year and saw how they used their H backs and WRs as downfield blockers on running plays, I believe you will be able to forecast Upchurch in a similar role. He can catch the ball. But he has the body to be a punishing blocker against defensive backs. I believe Cameron ...

The old Alex Box was built to look like the stadium at the Polo Grounds ... the home park of the New York Giants. Some of Giants' players were pool hustlers. Notably Carl Hubbell, the great pitcher for the New York Giants. The Yankees trained in New Orleans. And the St. Louis Browns trained in Bogal...

Many things are different today than when Dale Brown was in his prime.
Football has won two National Championship since Dale was here.
Baseball has won six NCAA championships and built a palace for a stadium.
The Advocate covered LSU basketball as a major sport when Dale was here. Today the New O...

Part of Anderson's time with the Tigers, a fullback named Eddie Ray was the real deal. Powerful runner, strong blocker and outstanding punter. Godfrey Zanunbrecher was an All-SEC center in 1969. Ray and Zaunbrecher had a good pro careers. So did Casanova, who played made All-America in 1969-70-71 as...

Most fans have low self esteem. They feel better about themselves when their team wins. When things don't go as they wish, they must find fault. They must find a culprit, someone to blame for the poor outcome and their present unhappiness. They believe that they could make better decisions than thos...

In 1969, Texas had the best running game in the country. LSU had the best defense against the run. LSU was told the Cotton Bowl was interested. LSU preferred the Cotton over other bowls because of the possibility of playing for the National Championship. Archie Manning beat the Tigers in Jackson, 26...

Good luck, Bubba.
