Mardi Gras parade float rips LSU to shreds for loss to Alabama (Pictures)

Knowing how big Mardi Gras is for the people of Louisiana, I can’t imagine there were too many happy faces looking at this parade float. A group of people — clearly Alabama fans — had to have spent a ton of time putting together the float you see above, which is loaded with one-liners, portraits, and numbers that completely rip LSU for their loss to the Crimson Tide in the...

Is Jordan Jefferson The Worst Long-Term Starter Ever?

I recently googled “worst four year starting quarterback” while doing some research. The first four results were links to statistical analysis of NFL quarterbacks, but the fifth was to Reggie Ball’s wikipedia. I think Georgia Tech’s fans would agree he doesn’t have much of a legacy on the field, but his statistics weren’t all that awful considering the rest of the team...

Jordan Jefferson blames playcalling, lack of adjustments for LSU’s poor showing vs. Alabama

LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson had a miserable showing in the National Championship Game against Alabama. The senior went 11/17 for 53 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. The team amassed just five first downs and fewer than 100 total yards in the 21-0 loss. There were cries for Jarrett Lee to replace Jefferson at quarterback. So what does Jefferson think went wrong? He...

LSU Tigers: 2011 Exit Survey

When we did our Pre-Season Preview we tabbed LSU as the #4 team in the Nation.

Despite being without their starting QB, Jordan Jefferson, LSU responded and backup Jarrett Lee played great football at the start of the season...

Jarrett Lee Says He Was ‘Frustrated’ Watching LSU Lose to Alabama

Les Miles Reflects On Losing Kiel And The BCS National Championship Game

LSU head football coach Les Miles was in a reflective mood as he reacted to quarterback recruit Gunner Kiel’s decision to enroll at Notre Dame instead of playing for the Tigers. "Young people make a variety of decisions for a variety of reasons,” Miles said. “A guy in the Midwest wanting to stay close to home was his right decision. I can understand that. We need people...

Who has the edge? LSU vs. Alabama

Quarterback: Alabama When LSU was relying on both Jarrett Lee and Jordan Jefferson in the middle of the season, the Tigers had an edge over a lot of teams because they were operating with a rare two-quarterback system that worked well because of the different elements the two brought to the table. Now that situation has changed and Jeffersons struggles against Georgia in the SEC...
