Pressed into action for the first time in his LSU career in 2012, Jalen Collins has experienced some ups and downs. He thinks all of it, and additional practice time before the Tigers' bowl, will help him for 2013.

LSU still aiming for title without Mathieu

The focus should be on who they do have rather than who they dont. Sure, the loss of Tyrann Matheiu will leave a hole in the LSU secondary. For all his bluster and Muhammad Ali-level bravado, Matheiu was the best defensive back in college football, and arguably the best overall player in the country.

Slant Routes

With the end of LSU's baseball season, we have officially hit the dead period of college athletics.  No single topic has seemed worthy of its own blog post recently, so I figured I'd just throw out some Slant Routes and cover a bunch of things together.  RECRUITING Manvel, TX wide receiver Kyrion Parker decommitted from LSU just two short weeks after committing.  Parker...
