LSU to wear purple against South Carolina on Saturday

The LSU Tigers have some pretty big traditions. One of their biggest traditions is not wearing purple against SEC opponents when they play them at home. Their game against South Carolina, however, is a tad nontraditional. After the flooding in the state of South Carolina forced the game to be moved from Columbia to Baton Rouge, the Gamecocks announced what they will be wearing on...

Wednesday musings with Les Miles

LSU head coach Les Miles touched on a number of topics Wednesday pertaining to his football team. The group of receivers haven't quite performed up to expectations this year. Malachi Dupre is the leading pass-catcher with only 122 yards receiving through four games. LSU does run the ball a great deal of the time, and this naturally does limit reception opportunities. With that...

Can Leonard Fournette carry LSU?

On Monday, I wrote about teams that are one-dimensional with quarterbacks. LSU has found itself in a rare spot. The offense for the Tigers is based on the rushing attack of one. While Leonard Fournette has become the early Heisman favorite, he has also created an unbeaten start for LSU. Clearly the offensive line has done some work, paving holes for Fournette to run through, but...

Leonard Fournette Runs Wild Again, Makes Us Question If He’s Human

LSU running back Leonard Fournette is building up our expectations of him so high, that the day he rushes for fewer than 200 yards is the day we call it a disappointing game. But at this rate, we don’t think he’ll ever have such a “bad” day. On Saturday, against the lowly Eastern Michigan Eagles, Fournette crossed the 200-yard mark, rushing for 233 yards and three touchdowns...

Alley Broussard Awaits Leonard Fournette to Surpass Record

It was another electric night in Tiger Stadium. LSU had a young quarterback under center, but there was no need to worry about scoring when they had this running back. A young back that had all the tools—he could truck right over a defensive player then suddenly zoom past for 20, 30, and 40+ yard gains. There he goes again—gain of 44 yards. Before you knew it he was off into...

LSU to wear purple for the first time in 2015

The LSU Tigers are known for usually wearing white jerseys at home. It’s usually a special time when the Tigers break out their purple jerseys. While Saturday’s game against Eastern Michigan really isn’t all that special, they will be bringing the purple jerseys out for the first time this season. College Spun had the photo of the entire uniform and it’s pretty sharp as usual...

Through the first month of the season, Leonard Fournette has been one of the best, if not THE best, in all of college football.

One pro football writer wrote an article saying that Fournette should take a break for the 2016 season: Fournette...
