Corrected Wallpaper, still for the kids (it's like Trix that way)

via First, my apologies for missing the '25 championship. Not sure how that happened, but I'm non-the-less impressed that someone actually pointed it out. Second, I...


Wallpaper for the kids

My wife wanted one, so I begrudgingly made it. You're welcome. That was going to be all, but apparently this must be 75 words long, so now I'm just typing things to fill up space. Holy cow, I'm...


Is this Tradition, or did Saban Steal It?

Preface, I'm an LSU fan and I hold no bad blood towards Saban. He won us a title. I'll take it. As for the question, I don't really care if it's stolen, I'm just curious. One of LSU's main...


Wallpaper FTW

A new Heisman campaign takes shape at LSU.


Cheers and Jeers: Bye Week

From the GREAT STATE OF ALABAMA ... Things to do during the bye week: Grab a boat and a fishing pole. Head to Destin, Fla., for the annual fishing rodeo. If you like cougars, AJs in the offseason...


The Good, The Bad & The Ugly: Auburn

I just finished watching the condensed replay of Saturday's Auburn-LSU game and feel I have a much better grasp on how the game actually went down. For one, it came with a better view, the camera...


Cheers and Jeers: Auburn Week

From the GREAT STATE OF ALABAMA ... Things made obvious by sports talk radio in Birmingham this week: You can't contain Cam Newton. Unless you rank in the top 55 in total defense in the nation,...


The Optimists are Coddling

Across the nation, LSU is flying well below the radar and appears to be the least thought about top 15 team out there. That is rather frustrating for those of us looking to find opinions of those...

Feeling Out a 3-0 Start

Much has been made about LSU's start, at least within LSU circles. The offense looks terrible. The line isn't blocking. Jordan Jefferson doesn't have great accuracy. We've heard it all. But take a...

Olympic Sports Report

This definitely won't become a regular feature because of all the things I will write about, this will be the one that gets lost in the suffle. However, I do plan to give some of the less...

Analyzing What I Was Looking For

Prior to LSU's victory over Washington, I wrote about eight things I was looking for out of the Tigers on Saturday night. Here's my run down of LSU's performance based on those eight points. 1) J...

"I can tell you this, that they have a much easier road to travel," Miles said. "They’re going to p...

"I can tell you this, that they have a much easier road to travel," Miles said. "They’re going to play real knockdown drag-outs with UCLA and Washington, Cal-Berkeley, Stanford — some real juggernauts." (emphasis mine)

Miles Calls Out Pac 10 I'd forgotten the statement until today. That was Miles two summers ago when talking about the possibility of LSU playing USC for the national championships. I have to say I agree with the sentiment though, and lets add Oregon to the list after last night. However, it has apparently been bulletin board material around Seattle over the offseason.

I'm a fan. This is what I am interested in.

Here at ATVS, we all bring our own unique insight to LSU and creative writing style. But when it comes down to it, we're just fans. We're the guy that wakes up at 6 a.m. to go to the grocery store...

Your Abbreviated Pundit Round Up

On Fridays, I plan to search every nook and cranny of the internet for game predictions for Saturday. WIthout further ado, your Opening Weekend punditry. Chris Low, ESPN's SEC blogger: LSU 34,...

Things I Noticed

Earlier today I wrote about what interested me in tonight's Thursday night games. So, what did I see?   Go SEC! South Carolina suffocated NC State giving the league a big non-conference road win...

What Interests Me Tonight

Unlike Richard's post below, I am a die hard college football fan. I spend a good portion of my day wasting away reading about almost anything related to it that I can find. I can't wait to get to...

From the Notes

Every week, I plan to go through the game notes so wonderfully put together by the respective SID staff at LSU and its weekly opponent to bring you the highlights. I say plan because, invariably...



It's Been 10 Years

Who would have guessed it. Ten years ago this fall, LSU was coming off one of its most disappointing seasons in history and heading into an unforseen disastrous one. The 1998 Tigers started the...


The Eight Things I'd Improve About College Football

It's hard to make college football any better. But here are eight ways how.


Crowton can't wait to unleash his creativity with LSU's offense this season.

Hold on to the Rock

Les Miles has everyone holding onto the football more, and his LSU Tigers fumbling less.

LSU Can Hoop, Too

I made my daily visit over to today to see some great news for the Basketball team. While the 2009-10 schedule hasn't been released yet, a portion of the Tigers non-conference slate...

More on the SEC and Bowl Contracts

Last Thursday I wrote a post on The SEC and Bowl Contracts, seeing as how every bowl contract runs up at the end of the season and negotiations are underway for the next fout-year cycle. For the...


If Preseason Polls Were Based on Recruiting Rankings

What if recruiting rankings were used to come up with the preseason top 25? I ran the numbers to find out.


The SEC and Bowl Contracts

Ed.  Bumped from the FanPosts.  The end of the 2009 football season also brings all current bowl contracts to an end, which means you'll likely see stories on negotiations sprinkled in the news...


A New Twist on Old Rivalries

I recently saw a blog post (don't ask me where, I couldn't tell you) about interesting venues for a college football game. It got me thinking, what would be some cool venues and opponents for an...


August is Finally Here

Every year, once the Final Four ends, it seems like it's going to be an eternity until August, the point when I finally allow myself to begin getting pumped about football. It's hard to wait that...

Geaux Tigers: What We Learned

Beating Auburn on the road is a monster vicrtory. But the biggest thing that came out of Saturday's game is a starting quarterback. 1) Sorry to Andrew Hatch, but this derby is over and Jarret Lee...

Game Week: Troy Chatter

While we still don't know if LSU and Troy will actually play this Saturday, we here at ATVS are going to prepare like there is going to be a game. So here's your early week chatter from around the...
