These LSU fans aren’t loyal. That’s what Tigers’ safety Jamal Adams thinks, anyway.  Wednesday evening, LSU’s men’s basketball team lost to Tennessee on senior night, 78-63.

Houston Texans are moving on from Andre Johnson

Andre Johnson has a good chance of winding up in the Pro Football Hall of Fame down the road.
