PHOTO: Leonard Fournette’s Braces Are Finally Off

LSU’s star running back Leonard Fournette embodied everything every football player wants to be. The talented rusher ran past defenders all season to end with a total of 1,953 yards and 22 touchdowns. It seems the only thing truly holding Fournette back was that metal in his mouth. On Friday, however, Fournette revealed that his braces was taken off. He took to Twitter to show...

LSU’s Leonard Fournette comments on not being a Heisman finalist

For much of the 2015 college football season, the answer to “who’s going to win the Heisman Trophy?” was simple: Leonard Fournette.  The LSU running back had a tough game on a national stage against Alabama and the Tigers lost some games down the stretch, though, so he fell out of the race. When the award’s finalists were announced on Monday, Fournette didn’t hear his...

Leonard Fournette has succinct response to Heisman announcement

Through the first half of the college football season, it looked like Leonard Fournette was leaving the rest of the Heisman field in the dust. LSU struggled when it hit SEC West play, however, and Fournette lost momentum to other running backs, most notably Alabama’s Derrick Henry, who outdueled him with 210 yards and three touchdowns to 31 and one in Alabama’s 30-16 win over...

WATCH: LSU releases video to honor Leonard Fournette

The 2015 college football season will be a memorable one for the LSU Tigers. It isn’t so much for their 8-3 record at the finish or the way the situation with head coach Les Miles was handled.

Alabama fans chant 'overrated at Leonard Fournette after he scores

LSU star running back Leonard Fournette, who many consider to be the Heisman Trophy favorite, did not have a good day against Alabama. Fournette, on 19 carries, ran for just 31 yards and a touchdown in a 30-16 loss to the Tide. To make matters worse, Alabama fans had a bit of fun at his expense. After Fournette scored his only touchdown of the contest – a 1-yarder in the fourth...

Leonard Fournette is unhappy about distasteful Alabama sign

LSU running back Leonard Fournette is arguably the best running back in the game right now and it wouldn’t be smart to add any more fuel to his fire. But some Alabama fans didn’t think about that when they posted up the offensive sign seen above. Leonard Fournette, a Louisiana native that endured the tragedy that was Hurricane Katrina, left a clear message on a Twitter about...

Alabama frat hangs 'Finish What Katrina Started” sign ahead of LSU game

We’ve seen some fairly offensive signs hanging from fraternities ahead of important college football games over the past few years. The below, which was spotted at Alabama Friday ahead of Saturday’s contest between the Crimson Tide and the LSU Tigers, might be the most ridiculous of all, though. An Alabama frat appears to have posted a “Finish What Katrina Started” sign...
