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. ...

re: Happy Birthday Alvin Roy - LayupKing
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...

re: coach jones does not like to use his bench - LayupKing
Why don't we sell seats on the bench? And game uniforms? And the right to participate in pre-game warmups? With so many luxury cars along fraternity row, surely this a possible revenue source for TAF to investigate. As little as the bench played in one of our few laughers, no one would notice....

re: tOfficial LSU 2015/2016/2017 Basketball Recruiting Thread - LayupKing
Coach, You have mentioned several times that you expect Epps and Robinson to be ready to contribute next season. What kind of off season program will take them from where they are now to a point where they are capable of playing 20+ quality minutes next year? Are there any junior college bigs avail...

re: Craig Victor - LayupKing
Coach, I remember some of your early posts about Victor. You were not enthusiastic about him solving our problems, as I recall. You were even less excited about Sample in your initial evaluations of his skills. I look forward to your evaluation of Ben Simmons. Wish I could go with you. ...
