CFB Top Ten

Deke's college football top ten, week six

Please shut up when it comes to putting Alabama out of the playoff talks. The Tide still have the best CFB program in the nation and they are still by far the best overall team in the SEC!  Until someone else proves it, tough!  Ohio State got a scare, Michigan State is overrated and Ole Miss found out that it's a long season, and one quality win won't get you to the playoffs!

T-Bob: EMU will be a blowout; LSU fans should get back to basics

This Saturday’s game against Eastern Michigan promises to be one of the biggest blowouts in Tiger Stadium history. EMU is a team that currently ranks dead last - thats right, 127th out of 127 possible FBS teams, in rushing defense.  They are a squad that gave up over 500 rushing yards at Army last week. Read More

T-Bob: Tigers overcome plethora of penalties to juice the Orange

LSU defeated Syracuse 34-24 in a game that was much closer than many predicted.  In fact, I count myself amongst the number that had LSU covering the full 24 point spread. However, it was not meant to be as the most successful opponent of the Purple and Gold today were the Tigers themselves. Read More

T-Bob: Even a full strength Syracuse shouldn't be truly competitive

The LSU Tigers will look to extend their record to 3-0 this Saturday when they travel to the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York to take on the Orange for the first time since 1989.  On that fateful day 26 years ago, it was the yankees that emerged victorious 23-10 in the Hall of Fame Bowl in the old Tampa Stadium.  Now is the time for revenge!

Mark: Humble Les Miles says Tigers have "accomplished nothing"

The LSU Tigers have had a pretty productive start to the season with two wins against zero losses. To boot, both victories came against rivals from the SEC West, and the domination they displayed against Auburn vaulted them into the top 10. However, on his weekly radio show, Coach Les Miles said no one has won anything for starting 2-0. Read More

T-Bob's Take

T-Bob: Time for LSU to shine on national stage against Auburn

This week’s matchup against Auburn represents the perfect opportunity for LSU to make a statement on a national stage and kickstart their season into high gear.  When you look at the Purple and Gold’s schedule it is not crazy to think that if you win this game you could very likely be 8-0 when it comes time to face off against Alabama later in the season.

T-Bob: End the reductive LSU "bad coaching" narrative

The LSU Tigers opened up their long awaited 2015 season with a thrilling 21-19 victory over the Mississippi State Bulldogs.  Heisman hopeful Leonard Fournette turned in a masterful performance carrying the ball 28 times for 159 yards (5.7 avg) and three touchdowns.  Brandon Harris managed to avenge last year’s loss at Auburn and win in an extremely hostile road environment.
