What can possibly be said about this hair (via @iJig2Pieces)? We’ve been left speechless and it’s usually over a supermodel’s ass. Not this time. Just some random LSU weave. We want answers and we needed them yesterday. How long does it take an artist to complete such work? Over/Under is 3 hours. In other LSU-Alabama news, the folks at AL.com found Bama fans making a Corndog...
Mostly everyone knows who Bear Bryant is. If you are a casual college football fan or have seen the movie Forrest Gump, you have heard the legend of the greatest college coach of all time. Wait, haven’t you? Apparently the story of Bryant has not made its way completely around the country and through every [...]

The country will be fixated on the #1 vs #2 SECmageddon game between...
This much we know: Neither Alabama nor LSU make a habit of living off the play of their quarterback. And despite the fact that each of their starting QBs have actually played very well this season, I would wager that both teams' Best Case Scenario for this game doesn't involve much in the way of heroics from AJ McCarron or Jarrett Lee. They would rather have the game be decided...

LSU tight end Deangelo Peterson Peterson is eager for chances to shine against the Crimson Tide
If you want to state your mind on what you think we’ll be in store for tomorrow night in Tuscaloosa, here you go.
A couple of food for thought items to get things rolling:
Before the season started, but after the Jefferson suspension, did you ever think you’d see something like this: Why LSU Might Win: Quarterback experience. If LSU holds up for the rest of the season,...
