re: Time to reshuffle the SEC divisions - LayupKing
Alabama was going to the Rose Bowl in the 1920s and 1930s. They were up and down in the 1950s. Bryant came back in 1958. He won six national championships, Stallings won one, and Saban has won four since that time. They don't stay down for long....

re: Why did we play FSU 5 years in a row at home from 1979-1983? - LayupKing
At the time, Florida State could not get anyone to play them in Tallahassee. Bobby Bowden started a tradition for the Seminoles. When they won at Arizona State or Georgia, they would take home a chunk of that turf and plant it on the field at Tallahassee. Soon they had a sizable collection of "scal...

re: Pete Finney passed away this morning at the age of 88- - LayupKing
When Dave Dixon was actively trying to get an NFL franchise for New Orleans, Peter Finney gave him PR advice and helped him in the promotion of pre-season games. Dave was wise to listen to Pete. The pre-season games were well attended in old Tulane Stadium and City Park Stadium. The NFL was impress...

re: Tell Scott Rabalais that Dale Brown did not - LayupKing
I wonder where he got that information? Dale was not here then. Kent Lowe was not here. I heard Sam King made the trip to Kentwood with Press and Jay McCreary to sign Collis. It was well before Rab's time. Dale was a talented guy, but he couldn't represent two schools at the same time. Sometimes wri...

re: QB Recruiting - The Reality - LayupKing
Where was genius Jimbo when Matt Flynn was a sophomore and junior at LSU? Was QB development even discussed back then? The favorite expression was ... "the light will go on. ..." Not everyone matures at the same rate. Bert Jones didn't do much until late in his junior year. Flynn helped win a nat...

re: Anyone here at the 1959 Halloween game? - LayupKing
I was there. The Ole Miss drive, with sophomore quarterback Doug Elmore at the controls, had Tiger fans on edge for the final 10 minutes. The greatest run anyone had ever seen was about to be wiped out by the Rebel's third team quarterback. Warren Rabb and Cannon stopped the drive at the LSU 2 yard ...

re: Has LSU tweaked the colors? - LayupKing
The change was made to avoid purple. LSU had two uniforms under Dietzel. White jersey, goldenrod pants ... and all golden rod. After the 1956 season, Dietzel's teams never wore purple jerseys. He even wanted to change the school colors to blue and gold....

re: Has LSU tweaked the colors? - LayupKing
In 1956 LSU wore purple jerseys. Dietzel did not like purple. For the 1957 spring game, Dietzel divided the squad into the blue and gold teams for the Blue and Gold game. You can look it up in the Advocate sports section of May 1957. His unhappiness with purple may of had something to do with the te...

re: Has LSU tweaked the colors? - LayupKing
LSU's colors are old Gold and royal Purple. LSU wore old gold helmets and old gold pants in the fifties. Dietzel did not like purple and changed the uniform in 1957 to the present design and color scheme. The helmet was the color of the Green Bay helmet. The jersey, in the trade, was known as the UC...

re: Statue of Pete - LayupKing
In order to reach the LSU Sports Hall of Fame, you must enter the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. That's right ... the building is named for Pete, who has not been named to the LSU Sports Hall of Fame. Maybe the Hall of Fame should be relocated until Pete gets admitted. ...

In the summer of 1958, Alvin Roy had the following clients working out at his establishment on Oklahoma Street: Bob Pettit, Jim Taylor, Billy Cannon, Johnny Robinson, Roy Winston and Norbert Roy. Cannon and Robinson were working out on their own not as a part of the LSU team, which would begin...

re: tOfficial LSU 2015/2016/2017 Basketball Recruiting Thread - LayupKing
Hey Coach, McVeigh committed to, but has not signed with Nebraska, a team that ended its season with nine straight losses. Any possibility that a coaching change by the Huskers could get the Aussie wing man to re-think his commitment? Does LSU have any interest in this 6-8 wing at this stage of t...
