LSU doesn’t land a No. 1 class, but results matter more

By any standard, LSU’s National Signing Day was a mixed bag. Sure, the Tigers landed five-star corner Kristian Fulton, but that was just the cherry on top of a loaded defensive-back class at a position which already was a relative strength on the depth chart. Elsewhere, LSU lost out on key four-star linebacker Erick Fowler to Texas and saw longtime target Trayvon Mullen choose...

LSU basketball, part 2: It’s about more than Ben Simmons

To the casual American sports fan, Ben Simmons might indeed represent a ratings magnet for ESPN, thereby convincing the WorldWide Leader to broadcast a disproportionate amount of LSU basketball games this season. It’s been rather conspicuous over the past month: Not only do commentators reserve a ton of airtime for Simmons, but ESPN does as well. Yes, let’s not deny the obvious...

LSU lands three-star QB commit

The LSU Tigers have a surefire top-three recruiting class for the 2016 season, but their class would look a whole lot more complete with a quarterback in the mix. Since four-star quarterback Feliepe Franks flipped to Florida, the Tigers hadn’t picked up a commit from that position. They did just that on Sunday when in-state three-star quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr. announced his...

Lil Wayne offers advice for LSU star Ben Simmons

Ben Simmons has been one of the best college basketball players in the country this season and the LSU star freshman will likely be the No. 1 pick in this June’s NBA Draft.  There’s a ton to like about his game – his size, his passing, his basketball IQ, his ability to create, etc.  If there’s one complaint, though, it’s this: he has to be more aggressive. This was...

Shaq Jokingly Says LSU ‘Paid Very Well’ During His Time Playing For School

When it is all said and done, Shaquille O’Neal will likely go down as one of the best players ever to touch a basketball. From championships to MVP awards and all the accolades in the pros, Shaq got his start as a dominate force for the LSU Tigers. While staking his claim as one of the best on the hardwood in the SEC, Shaq turned the Tigers back to a force that hadn’t been seen...

LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda to get hefty contract

LSU hired former Wisconsin defensive coordinator Dave Aranda three weeks ago to replace Kevin Steele. Aranda made a big change, but probably for good reason as he is reportedly getting a very flexible contract to do his thing for the Tigers.

Former LSU Star Jacob Hester Thinks The Tigers’ 2016 Recruiting Class Could Be An “All-Time” One

Les Miles is putting together quite a 2016 recruiting class. LSU’s ’16 crop currently includes 21 commitments, 17 of which are four-stars.  The Tigers probably aren’t done yet, too. LSU currently trails Ohio State on most recruiting sites, but if Miles’ team has the type of finish most analysts are expecting them to, Baton Rouge, La. should be home to the country’s No...

Ben Simmons is more like Lamar Odom than LeBron James

In the game of basketball, we all are guilty of making the notion of finding the next once in a lifetime talent. To some, the search for the next Michael Jordan was a failed one, and I am sure that we will not find the next Kobe Bryant or LeBron James. These types of comparisons make fans underappreciate the greatness of players while comparing him to their so-called heir apparent...
