That Alabama fan tattoo from a couple of weeks ago that BC introduced to the Internet is still sending shock waves through the SEC. Take LSU fan @skillet2396. This guy spent a considerable amount of time last week tweeting pretty much every major ESPN Twitter account, begging them to take notice of his Mike The Tiger.
So, let’s have a tat-off.
Better SEC mascot tattoo: Mike The Tiger or Big Al?
Have a football-themed tat we need to see? Have a massive Nick Saban tattoo on your back? Bear Bryant tattoo on your chest? Les Miles eating a piece of grass on your shoulder? Let us see it.

Being a coach in the SEC isn’t easy. Aside from all the pressure that comes with having to figure out the X’s and O’s of coaching against some of the toughest competition in the country, there are also the challenges of recruiting. And with recruiting comes sitting down to dinner at a recruit’s house, which can lead to having to scoff down some pretty strange stuff.
LSU coach Les Miles is riding out Hurricane Isaac at the Tigers' football operations building, where he and members of his staff continue planning for Saturday night's scheduled home opener against North Texas.
The third-ranked Tigers were given the option of staying in their own apartments, at the football operations building or in Tiger Stadium.
Miles announced on Monday that running back Michael Ford is going through an appeal process to allow him to play. Ford has some academic issues that could keep him off the field for the 2012 season.
“There is some appeal process that’s being undertaken for those guys, and we’ll kind of have to wait to see how that all turns out as we get closer to the game,” Miles said...
The relationship between Alabama coach Nick Saban and his quarterback, AJ McCarron, was once best known for a spanking and a sideline tirade, both captured on camera.
Now, McCarron says it's more like a ''second Dad and son type thing.'' The BCS championship game MVP is a driven perfectionist who loathes even small mistakes in practice. Dad No. 2 can relate....
LSU head coach Les Miles says it's unclear if running back Michael Ford or linebacker Taj Jones will play in LSU's season opener against North Texas this Saturday night.
Miles says the pair are appealing unspecified academic rulings that could keep them out of the game.
Ford led LSU with 756 yards rushing last season to go with seven touchdowns, while Jones is a projected...
Head Coach: Les Miles (75-18, entering 8th season) The Story: In 2011, LSU ran through one of the strongest schedules we’ve seen in quite some time. Through their regular season schedule they were not only unscathed, but downright dominant hammering opponents not named Alabama by an average of, I don’t know, a billion or so. [...]
Les Miles had hoped LSU could have a drama-free August this season.
It hasn't quite worked out that way, but the No. 3 Tigers expressed confidence on Monday that a season full of promise would not be derailed by the loss of their biggest star, the looming possibility of a couple other key players being sidelined by academic issues, or even the potential disruptions that could...

LSU will play South Carolina in the SEC...
Alabama lacks depth in its secondary, which is no secret as coach Nick Saban has hammered that home all offseason. But that means younger and more inexperienced players will see playing time, which is OK as long as they understand the scheme. We'll see if that's so on Saturday.
