Welcome from Tiger Stadium

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Welcome from Tiger Stadium, where a few of the LSU players are out on the field warming up in their new Nike Combat uniforms.

The uniforms are all white, including white helmets. The stripe on the helmet is gold as well as the stripe on the shoulders.

A lot of the teams around college football are breaking out new uniforms for a game or two, and most of them are hideous (see Maryland), but the uniform LSU is wearing today is sharp.

It’s always a treat to come to Tiger Stadium and soak up everything that goes along with an LSU home football game. When you add it all together -- the tailgating, the partying, the band and the football -- there’s not a better game-day atmosphere anywhere.

Still, it’s a shame that LSU won’t be playing one night game at home this season against an SEC opponent, the first time that’s happened since 1935.

Night games here truly are magic.
