I came away very impressed with the overall physicality that Kevin Minter exhibited on a consistent basis. A highly instinctive prospect; Minter never shies away from initial contact. Minter has become LSU’s leader on defense this season as well as shown growth each game. Minter projects as an Inside Linebacker in either a 4-3 or 3-4 defensive scheme.

It is finally here the 2012 Mount Everett of college football weekends. It originally was suppose to pit the top four teams in the country with the winners setting up the National Championship games, but LSU could not move the ball in their loss at the Swamp to Florida and USC lost two games, one to Stanford after their start center Khaled Holmes and then last week got beaten by...
On Saturday night, for the third time in 18 months, the Alabama Crimson
Tide and the LSU Tigers will square off in a game that will impact the
national title picture. But if LSU "upsets" Alabama on Saturday night, does
anything really change?
Alabama, the defending national champions, is led by the outstanding play of junior quarterback A.J. McCaron...

LSU coach Les Miles holds a place somewhere near the top of the college coaching ranks. Ironically, though, he doesn’t exactly have a reputation as a master tactician.
Whatever Miles’ shortcomings may be in the Xs-and-Os department, they haven’t stopped the Tigers from kicking ass when given extra time to prepare for an opponent. Since taking over at LSU, The Hat's teams...
It’s a lovely convenience when you can get in your Friday afternoon 18 and still be able to exhibit the appropriate levels of hate for your weekend football opponent. Well, The Caddy Shack in Baton rouge offers just such a luxury…by sticking an 8 foot tall (he wishes) Nick Saban on their driving range, that, by the looks of the damage, is nothing but an appropriately timed...
Zach Mettenberger (allegedly) left a nice tip for his server…(picture after the jump) Ha! That’s original. Ass. (H/t @ChrisRAllen on the Twitter)
Les Miles met with the media Wednesday evening to give the latest preview of LSU-Alabama.
Although the annual meeting between Alabama and LSU has lost a little bit of appeal, this is still one of 2012’s most-anticipated games. The Tigers...
Throughout the first nine weeks of the Discover Fan Loyalty Poll results, the fans have voted the Alabama Crimson Tide as the best team in the country. In fact, they had it right even longer than most of the polls, as either the LSU Tigers or USC Trojans spent some time atop many polls and rankings headed into the 2012 college football season. Alabama has been at the top of the BCS...
