BATON ROUGE, La. -- One of the leading questions for LSU's spring practice is how the Tigers' defense might function differently with Kevin Steele as defensive coordinator. We probably won't have an answer there until a few weeks into the season -- LSU has no incentive to reveal anything before then -- but here's a small twist.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- For most LSU fans, there is only one spring storyline that matters: the quarterback battle between Anthony Jennings and Brandon Harris. Indeed, the competition between junior Jennings (1,611 passing yards, 11 TDs, 7 INTs in 2014) and sophomore Harris (452 yards, 6 TDs, 2 INTs) might determine whether the Tigers re-emerge as legitimate contenders in the SEC West or remain in the middle of the pack like last season's 8-5 club.
LSU wrapped up an 8-4 regular season by edging Texas A&M on Thursday -- with freshman running back Leonard Fournette leading the way. Here is how Fournette and LSU's other true freshmen fared in the 23-17 victory over the Aggies: S Jamal Adams What he did: Adams started for the second time in the past three games and tied for the team lead with eight tackles, plus he made a tackle for loss.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Saturday's blowout win over Sam Houston State provided LSU with an opportunity to empty the bench -- and Tigers coach Les Miles took advantage by letting 16 players make their college debuts.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- The LSU Tigers lost one the few veterans on its interior defensive line in the first week of preseason camp when Quentin Thomas tore a bicep on Wednesday. LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette confirmed that Thomas had suffered an injury after the fourth-year junior missed practice on Thursday and Friday, but the Baton Rouge Advocate reported that he is expected to miss the season.
Editor's note: This week, we'll take a quick look at each of LSU's position groups as the Tigers prepare to open preseason practice next week. Up next are the tight ends. SAFETY Returning starters: Jalen Mills (67 tackles, four tackles for a loss, three sacks, three interceptions).
BATON ROUGE, La. -- We're a week away from the start of preseason practice for the LSU Tigers. Since several open spots on the depth chart make this arguably the most important freshman class in Les Miles' decade as the Tigers' coach, we thought it might be a good time to offer a refresher on Miles' thoughts about each signee once they officially became Tigers on national signing day.
Safety already ranked among the most unproven positions on LSU's roster. Jalen Mills' arrest and indefinite suspension on Wednesday only adds to the uncertainty. Mills was arrested early Wednesday and charged with second-degree battery in connection with an incident last month in which he allegedly punched a woman in the mouth at a Baton Rouge apartment complex.
