The Wonder Years.
LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu's high school coaches recall how The Honey Badger was doing the kinds of things he do...
BEST OF MAXIM
The tears in Tyrann Mathieu's beady brown eyes only began to tell the story of his heartache.
They welled last month as the star LSU cornerback spoke longingly of his maternal grandfather, Lorenzo Mathieu, who helped raise him here in this resilient city until he died of complications from a heart attack when Mathieu was 5.
But the tears disappeared and Mathieu's eyes reddened...
Tyrann Mathieu is no stranger to proving himself. Long before he became the breakout star of the season for top-ranked LSU, Dennis Dodd says the Honey Badger had to prove himself in high school to get out of Orleans Parrish.
The Honey Badger doesn’t give a bleep. We already knew that. Whatever the Honey Badger needs to do to get what he wants, he’s more than willing to do it. Typically, Tyrann Mathieu is one of the most physical players on the field and accomplishes his goals that way. However, he is also a known trash-talker. With such an enormous amount of time to prepare for the BCS National...
NEW ORLEANS — Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu had a new number and a new nickname yesterday in practice — but it wasn’t out of fear Alabama was spying on LSU’s workout.
In another illustration of how different Les Miles and Nick Saban run their ships, the Tigers had a...
LSU coach Les Miles can be hard to take seriously, chomping on grass, jumbling phrases and words, wrestling with the game clock.
Even with all his success, it's taken a while for Tigers fans to appreciate Miles.
Alabama coach Nick Saban, on the other hand, often makes football seem as serious as surgery. Crimson Tide fans greeted him as a savior from Day 1 and their admiration...
NEW ORLEANS -- Alabama offensive tackle Barrett Jones loves to watch quarterback AJ McCarron ride his inner emotional rollercoaster during games for two reasons. Jones also loves to poke fun at McCarron about said emotional rollercoaster ride.
Breaking down the mythical championship game. Previously: When LSU has the ball. Today: When Alabama has the ball.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how overmatched is A.J. McCarron?
First of all, that's not very nice. And secondly, Alabama's oft-overlooked quarterback may not as overwhelmed by LSU's defense as you think — like, maybe a five?
True, McCarron did throw a costly...
In college football that people say matters (playoffs?) but in fact has no meaning to the sports world, #2 North Dakota State upset #1 Sam Houston St. in their first Division I FCS football championship win. Don't tell that to one mysterious Sam Houston St. player because, according to this picture, he is not taking the loss well and may want to show that finger or fist into...
For different reasons, quarterbacks Jordan Jefferson of LSU and A.J. McCarron of Alabama spent most of this college football season trying to find their comfort zones.
Top-ranked LSU is 13-0 and the SEC champion because Les Miles and his staff have recruited some of the best players in the nation.
And they do this every year.
Heck, LSU already has a verbal commitment from the top quarterback prospect in Gunner Keil.
So much like yesterday's top five players from Alabama, it's equally as tough to pare down LSU to its best five.
