Week 3 Top 25 + LSU/MSU Notes

I’ll get my few comments about the LSU/Mississippi St. series out of the way. If you haven’t yet, please check out my Rivalry post about the series, which despite being played annually (in fact, it is LSU’s most-played series) has not resulted in a win for the Bulldogs since 1999. Even in the bad LSU years that preceded that game (such as the 2-9 team in 1992), the Tigers...

Miles: No. 10 LSU has been 'warned' about ULM

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) For a second straight week, LSU coach Les Miles is looking for the right message to keep his 10th-ranked Tigers sharp against a heavy underdog. That's a somewhat easier task this week, thanks to the recent history of Louisiana-Monroe. ULM, which plays in the Sun Belt Conference, has demonstrated that it'll knock off teams from power conferences from...

LSU's Death Valley: Roaring Tiger, shaking stadium

Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana - aka Death Valley. LSU coach Les Miles once called it after a big victory the place where opponents' ''dreams go to die.'' The place holds more than 102,000 fans. On Saturday nights in the fall - night games are when Tiger Stadium is most rowdy and raucous - there is no louder football stadium in America. Back in the 1980s...

Les Miles Says He’s Been Around Three Heisman Candidates, Including Leonard Fournette

Nobody’s 100 percent sure about what LSU head football coach Les Miles thinks about star freshman running back Leonard Fournette. One week, Miles will compare him to NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan. A few weeks later, Miles will say that there’s no reason for Fournette to think about winning the Heisman Trophy, and that people have “unrealistic expectations” about the freshman...

More on LSU’s Start and Understanding FCS Games

This isn’t the main thing I’m going to write about, but I heard it after I published my blog about the LSU-Wisconsin game. Since Les Miles took over at LSU, the Tigers are 22-21 when trailing in the fourth quarter, the only team in the FBS to have a winning record during that span (apparently, they don’t count the last-second loss to Clemson as “trailing in the fourth quarter”...

Les Miles On Leonard Fournette’s Heisman Pose: ‘Maybe He’s A Little Full Of Himself’

Leonard Fournette appeared to announce his Heisman candidacy Saturday evening. The LSU freshman running back, after scoring a four-yard touchdown–the first of his career–against Sam Houston State, celebrated with a Heisman pose.  It seemed a bit premature. Fournette, after all, is a player who has played two college games, totaling 110 yards and one score. The former top recruit’s...

WATCH: LSU's Fournette strikes Heisman pose after first TD

Well, this won’t make Les Miles happy. LSU star freshman running back Leonard Fournette scored the first touchdown of his collegiate career today, a four-yard run against Sam Houston State. This came right after Fournette ripped off a 40-yard run, the longest of his career. After scoring the TD, Fournette celebrated in a familiar way: by busting out the Heisman Trophy pose. After...

Pickin’ On the Big Ten, Week 2: The Something Strange Is Always Les Miles

Big Ten football didn’t have too many shocks last week.

What’s in store for week two? Click through and see how I’m calling the...

People Keep Confusing A Nebraska Basketball Coach For Les Miles

Tim Miles is the head basketball coach at the University of Nebraska. He is not Les Miles, and quite frankly, he’s a bit tired of being mistaken as the LSU football coach. Why the mixup?

A Day After: LSU vs. Wisconsin

You never quite know what you’ll get in the first game of the season. For LSU and Les Miles, it’s always been a mixed bag to start. Even in the 2011 blow out of Oregon, Jarrett Lee passed for under 150 yards and barely completed 50% of his passes. The game Saturday was no different. It was quite literally a tale of two halves. In the first, LSU’s offense was lifeless. The Wisconsin...
