George Bevan was an All-America LB in 1969 on a great Tiger defense.
Max Fugler was an All-America LB in 1958 on LSU's first national championship team. Cannon, for the record, was a safety on defense....

I hope the two teams meet in the finals at Omaha.
I hope LSU wins on a disputed play at the end. It will give SLI something to whine about between seasons. Keep up the good work Cajuns. Remedial students need a place to call home....

Stovall wanted Cannon to play defensive end. That had something to do with him looking elsewhere. Plus, the elder Cannon had played professional football with the Houston Oilers at a time when several ex-Aggies were on that team. ...

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...

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...
