Not likely. She’s going to have to compete. Knowing Mo, that’s what she wants to do. She wants to win the job right. She doesn’t want to be given anything.” At 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds, Mo will have to bring her best kicks forward to displace LSU’s top kickers.

LSU Practice Gallery: Day Two

Collins readies for bigger role

Having the benefit of a bona fide blue chip offensive lineman grow up in your back yard is a nice luxury. La'el Collins grew up cheering for the hometown LSU Tigers, so the talented sled pusher relishes the chance to be one of the men in the middle when the Tigers take to the field this fall. Collins took his first snaps of the 2012 practice sessions at guard this morning.

We've got one month to kill before college football comes back into our lives, and since I am known as a helpful and informative person (probably not true), I'm gonna offer you thorough reviews of each SEC stadium.  And by thorough review, I mean I'll be using my exceptional bias, Google reviews, and lots of colored lines hand drawn on Google maps....
