Important Part Of Coach O’s Audition Starts Tonight

Alabama defeated LSU for the sixth consecutive time last Saturday, temporarily stemming whatever momentum interim coach Ed Orgeron had built up in three home victories. While the Tigers’ effort and defense showed up, the offense was, well, offensive. Six first downs, 125 yards of total offense and 33 yards rushing will almost always result in an L in the record ledger. Continue reading

Tigers Unimpressive In Season Opener

By John Ventola

For years good days in my hometown Baton Rouge coincided with LSU football success. At least that is the way I felt as a youngster and as a student at the university. That feeling only intensified when my dad handed over the family’s two season tickets (17 years at that point) upon my graduation. Forty-six years later (yeah, Ventola family now in 63rd year as season ticket holders), LSU victories and championships make life good and more tolerable, but are no longer essential.

Etling Potential And Recruitment Of Haskins Keys Optimism

By John Ventola

LSU’s two football national championship over the past thirteen years were both led by steady quarterbacks. Matt Mauck and Matt Flynn were each skilled quarterbacks, athletes that proved to be dependable field generals while leading talented teams to titles. Neither was flashy, their biggest contribution being how they carried out the game plans of Nick Saban and Les Miles by keeping miscues to a minimum. Continue reading

Miles Reprieve And Opponent Should Result In Solid Effort

By John Ventola

LSU faithful have had thirty-one days to process the embarrassing drama that played out around Les Miles in November as the Tigers plummeted from the ranks of the unbeaten (ranked No. 2 in the initial CFP poll) to a team not ranked in the Top 25. A three-game SEC losing streak put the quirky eleventh year head coach on the hot seat, and ultimately atop the shoulders of his players following a job-saving victory over Texas A & M in the home finale, a win that literally gave him a “third quarter” reprieve from the coaches’ unemployed list.

Miles Survives While Richt Is Fired

By John Ventola

In what will go down as the most tumultuous month in LSU athletics history, Tigers football Coach Les Miles was criticized, scrutinized, and given a supposed last game victory ride off the field on the shoulders of his players. The win, and the vocal support of the Tiger Stadium home crowd Saturday, forced a locker room job reprieve from LSU president King Alexander and athletic director Joe Alleva. Continue reading

Time To Realize That Tigers Not Very Good

By John Ventola

Surprisingly, Ronda Rousey took a brutal kick to the face Saturday night. In what is turning into not that big of a surprise, LSU’s footballers got their stripped backsides kicked for the second consecutive week by an SEC opponent, losing meekly to four-loss Arkansas, 31-14. The “in your face” Razorbacks beat down was slower, although just as lethal. A first half knockdown was followed by late game domination to overcome a brief Tigers comeback. Continue reading

Tigers Need To Get Capable Quarterback On Board

By John Ventola

After taking a couple of days to digest Ohio State’s demolition of Oregon’s Sitting Ducks in the College Football Playoff (CFP) title game, local attention should refocus on how LSU coach Les Miles addresses his squad’s lack of a top rated quarterback. Continue reading

And The Beat Down Goes On

By John Ventola

If Louisiana football fans thought that the New Orleans Saints and the LSU Tigers offered them some sloppy play in September, their first games played in October give them very little hope for significant improvement anytime soon. To say both teams have their fanbases puzzled and frustrated at this point in the season is an understatement, even though the Saints did manage to best underdog Tampa Bay in overtime today at home.
