LSU Freshman Defensive Tackle Trey Lealaimatafao Possibly Lost for the Season After Punching Glass

Trey Lealaimatafao has a lot going for him. Standing over 6-feet tall and weighing around 300 pounds he could have very well been an integral player for Les Miles on the defensive side of the ball this coming season. Now it appears he might have to take a medical redshirt because of the damage he did to his arm after punching through some glass.via 247SportsAccording to the The Times...

Video: This ‘Jungle’ 2014 Hype Video Will Get LSU Fans Pumped Up For Fall Saturdays

One of more intriguing teams in college football this fall should be LSU.  The Tigers could start true freshmen at both quarterback and running back in Brandon Harris and Leonard Fournette, respectively. LSU, a program that loses underclassmen to the NFL more than anyone else, will be one of the youngest teams in the country in 2014. They’ll be quite talented, too. Many expect...

Expectations on Fournette nearing unrealistic levels

HOOVER, Ala. -- Leonard Fournette isn't going to have the chance to sneak up on the college football world. He's not going to slowly emerge, or explode, unexpectedly, onto the scene. LSU's freshman running back hasn't carried the ball once in a game. Heck, he hasn't even gone through a full college practice session yet. But the hype coming from Baton Rouge, La...

LSU head coach Les Miles transcript in full at SEC Media Days

LSU head coach Les Miles is ALWAYS nothing short of entertaining when it comes to a press conference, and this year was no difference. Instead of picking out the juicy bits, the whole press conference was simply....awesome.

LSU’s Les Miles Downplays His Grass Eating Habit, ‘It’s Not A Casserole’

Sometimes, during the middle of a college football game he’s coaching, Les Miles will crouch to the ground, snap a couple of grass blades out of the field, and eat them.  “I have a little tradition that humbles me as a man, that lets me know that I’m a part of the field and part of the game,” Miles told the Associated Press in 2010. “You should have seen some games before...

LSU Football Season Preview: Les Miles EXTRAVAGANZA

LSU football coach Les Miles just finished his time at the podium at SEC Media Days. Usually, he’s a lot more entertaining than he was today. He’s known for being press conference gold, but today he was rather vanilla. There weren’t any good jokes, and the only real unique topic of discussion was about the NFL Draft and how LSU football leads the nation in “three-and-dones...

LSU Coach Les Miles On 2014 Season: “I Like Us, And I Like Us In Every Game”

There aren’t many college football fans – well, at least outside of Baton Rouge – who are giving the LSU Tigers much of a chance this year in the SEC West, much less the SEC, given how much talent the program lost after last season. But Tigers head coach Les Miles made quite a statement today towards the end of his opening speech at SEC Media Days. He thinks LSU is going to...

LSU’s Les Miles Does Not Miss Former SEC Star QBs Johnny Manziel, A.J. McCarron, Or Aaron Murray

LSU Tigers: Replacing Offensive Weapons in 2014

The biggest shoes to fill on LSU’s team this season will be the eight that left for the NFL Draft this past May. When you lose two 1,100-yard receivers, a 1,400-yard rusher and a senior quarterback who threw for over 3,300 yards, fining players to just “Step in” is usually a great challenge. In Baton Rouge, there are players and talent can “step in” but this a team that...
