The Belly of the Beast:
Les Miles wants change to come to the cross-division format of the SEC schedule in which each team is assigned a permanent opponent from the other division. Making a disturbing amount of sense, Miles said, "A key piece for any conference is to allow equal access for any champion."
Miles' push for change is the result of the 2013 schedule, which calls for LSU to face Florida (its permanent opponent) and Georgia, while fellow West contenders Alabama and Texas A&M draw a mix of Tennessee, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, and Missouri. Last year, Georgia benefited from the schedule by playing Auburn and Ole Miss, while South Carolina, a team that beat Georgia 35-7, had to play LSU and Arkansas and ultimately missed out on a trip to Atlanta.
While it's easy to complain about things not being fair, does Miles offer a solution to the problem? Indeed he does, as he would be for a computer randomly selecting a team's cross-division opponents.
At the very least, ...

HONEY BADGER BASH
Someone might need to have a talk with former LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu about priorities but to be honest that talk should have been had long before this. According to the Honey Badger’s twitter page, he is hosting a party before the draft for the “first round pick” in the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft. https://twitter.com/Mathieu_Era/status/327048280347394048
It was already a bad enough idea for Tyrann Mathieu to host an NFL Draft party. When you have a reputation for having off-field problems that include a past marijuana addiction, being a party guy is not the image you wan’t to portray. But it’s also questionable when the flyer bills you as a “1st Round Draft Pick.”
Mathieu posted a picture to Instagram Wednesday of a flyer...
PICK: Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSUANALYSIS: I hate this pick. Mingo just ins't that good. Cleveland already got their pass rusher in free agency, and didn't need to take a chance on a bum like Mingo with the sixth overall selection. I think he will be a bust very early on, similar to Maybin in 2009. Cleveland will regret not taking Smith or Milliner here I believe.
PICK: Eric Reid, S, LSU
ANALYSIS: I know San Francisco was going to trade up for someone, but why Reid? I know there's been a lot of buzz around him lately (mostly with the Bengals), but I just don't see him as a first round prospect. I think San Francisco could have stayed put and taken a better safety like Matt Elam. He fills a big need, but I just can't understand...
At one point, former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu was graded as a potential first-round pick in the NFL. Then came a little thing called drug tests. But the man known as Honey Badger remains hopeful, perhaps defiantly so, that he will be taken Thursday night. He’s so confident that he has listed himself as a first-round pick on invites to a post-draft party that he is throwing...

By most accounts, former LSU Tigers defensive back Tyrann Mathieu, best known as the Honey Badger, is expected to be a second round pick at best in this weekend's NFL Draft.However, that hasn't stopped the troubled yet talented athlete from throwing a draft party Thursday night to celebrate a first-round selection which isn't likely to happen.Matheiu tweeted out a link...
As we are less than a day away from the 2013 NFL Draft, former LSU safety Tyrann Mathieu is one of the college football prospects hoping to have his name called.
Mathieu will be in New York City before the start of the draft and it appears that he will be throwing a party before the start of the draft.
Check out the ad for the party which will be held at S&L night club...
Following Saturday's spring game, TSD's Taylor Halsey caught up with three Tigers - WR Odell Beckham, DT Ego Ferguson and QB Zach Mettenberger - to get their take on how LSU progressed this spring.
The 49ers traded up to No. 18 overall to address perhaps their biggest need, adding LSU safety Eric Reid.
