ACC looks to leave shadow of SEC

Atlantas Georgia Dome has been a house of horrors for ACC football teams in the last several years, especially when opening seasons with clubs from the neighboring SEC. The ACC avoided one of those matchups a year ago, as Georgia took on Boise State, but will kick off this coming season with two games on the opening weekend at the Georgia Dome: N.C. State vs. Tennessee on Friday...

Catching Up On Recruiting - Football and Hoops

Devonta Pollard FOOTBALLPompano Beach, FL cornerback Rashad Robinson holds an offer from LSU and is expected to receive a visit from Coach Raymond on Tuesday.  Some speculate that Robinson may be ready to end his recruitment and commit to LSU.  But I wouldn't be surprised if LSU waits to get Robinson on campus before accepting his commitment.  Les Miles typically...

2012 NFL Draft – Top Defensive Backs

Cornerback 1. Morris Claiborne, LSU (5-11, 188): The best corner in the draft. Is a better prospect at this point than former Tiger Patrick Peterson. Claiborne has great foot quickness and is fluid in turning his hips to run. He entered LSU as a wide receiver before switching sides of the ball. Claiborne projects as an above average kick returner at the next level.  Prediction...

We’re at the point where every bowl game except the big one, the one that really matters, has been played.  Yes, the Cotton Bowl between Arkansas and Kansas State should be a fun one to watch. Much closer to being a true BCS bowl than tonight’s Orange Bowl between the so-called “best...

Scouting Notebook: A Look At LSU's Past and Present CB Studs, WAC Scouting, and Top 10 Non-BCS ...

In what will be the final scouting notebook before the Bowl season and one of the last of year, I'll take a look at how a past LSU cornerback (Patrick Peterson) compares with a current one (Morris Claiborne) and another current starter who we'll see next season (Tyrann Matthieu).

Claiborne avoids spotlight, shines on the field

Morris Claiborne was happy to keep quiet and play in the shadows of more flamboyant LSU cornerbacks. A season ago, Jim Thorpe award winner Patrick Peterson made all the headlines while Claiborne snagged a team-high five interceptions. This season, Tyrann Matheiu, the ''honey badger,'' has been the face of No. 1 LSU's big-play defense. Claiborne, meanwhile,...
