Good post, and A-men. LSU football is consistently sending among the highest number of students into the professional ranks. That is a good thing, and should be a major consideration of high school players who believe that they have what it takes to be professional.

For those who don't know, here are the words the the Aggie Fight Song:

Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!
Good-bye to Texas University
So long to the Orange and the White
Good luck to the dear old Texas Aggies
They are the boys that show the real old fight
| Tiger Rant|| re: Bluegrass version of Fight for LSU - sgbenne on 9/12/13 at 8:26 am|
LSU has several "fight" songs:
"Fight for LSU" (the "Official" Fight Song);
"Hey, Fighting Tigers" (the Band refers to it simply as, "Hey");
"Touchdown" (same tune that is played after "Pregame");
"Pregame" is also referred to as, "Hold That Tiger", and of course is famous for the first four...

The first one is TA&M, and the second is LSU. If 'Bama gets past those two games, it's another NC.
My prediction is that, with a bye week before TA&M, the Tide will win on the road against the Aggies, but will lose at home against the LSU Tigers. In addition, the Auburn game is most always a to...

"The best rivalry in college football right now is LSU and Alabama"? Well, except that LSU/Alabama has not been a "rivalry" per se. Intensely competitive, yes, over the past few years. Alabama's rivals are Auburn and Tennessee, and LSU's are Ole Miss, Texas A&M and perhaps Arkansas....

I don't really care that LSU play any particular team from the East in any given year - our traditional rival is Ole Miss and Texas A&M (and recently Alabama), but if there must be a set game with a East team every year, then it seems to make sense that Florida would be it; UF is the closest proxim...
