    BATON ROUGE, La. – As it turns out, the Great Debate of 2016 had nothing to do with Red and Blue states, but Purple and Orange ones. After more than a week of bickering, posturing and name-calling, Florida and LSU have, begrudgingly, come to an agreement to play the game postponed by Hurricane Matthew. Florida […]

    BATON ROUGE, La. – The Les Miles era of LSU football may be over, but his place in Tiger football history is forever cemented.

    BATON ROUGE, La. — When Les Miles was fired last month, he didn’t walk out the door alone. Longtime friend and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron went with him.

    BATON ROUGE, La. – If you are a college football fan of any team other than LSU, you might want to click on the next article. Admittedly what I am about to write feels like it is bordering on the absurd. Then again, if you need a good laugh, perhaps you should read on. For a […]

    BATON ROUGE, La. — When Ed Orgeron took over as LSU’s interim coach, one of the first changes he made was adjusting the Tigers’ practice schedule. Gone were the long, arduous practices Les Miles preferred. Orgeron replaced them with up-tempo workouts that required the team being on its feet for a fraction of the time […]

    BATON ROUGE, La. – Since taking over as LSU interim coach, Ed Orgeron has implemented themed practice days.

    BATON ROUGE, La. – Before Saturday’s loss to Alabama, Ed Orgeron had aced every test as LSU’s interim coach. There is no shame in losing to the best team in the country, but the Tigers’ 10-0 defeat to the Crimson Tide was the first blemish on Orgeron’s otherwise sterling start as the lead man. With […]

    BATON ROUGE, La. – With so much bickering over when and where the Florida-LSU game would be played this season, it only makes sense that the television slot would be contentious as well.

    For a season that began with national championship aspirations but saw Les Miles fired and a dreaded losing streak to Alabama stretch to six games, there still may be a sweet consolation for LSU. Auburn’s upset loss at Georgia and Texas A&M losing at home to Ole Miss may open the door to a possible […]

    BATON ROUGE, La. – Had LSU beaten Florida on Saturday and won in College Station on Thanksgiving, the path to the Sugar Bowl was unimpeded.

    Add Orlando Sentinel columnist Mike Bianchi to the growing list of, well, everyone weighing in on LSU’s pursuit of Jimbo Fisher.
