LSU Team animation for SEC Network

Lsu1-630x354

Here's something you're going to see a ton of over the next year, LSU's SEC Network team animation. (Sorry, couldn't embedd the video, just click here) It's already using LSU's new tiger head design, which is nice, but I think it could use something more than just Les Miles and Pete Maravich (Where are you, Skip Bertman?)

"Under the proposal, the N.C.A.A. would clear the way for sports powerhouses like Alabama and Ohio State to pay their athletes a few thousand dollars more than what the current scholarship rules allow, loosen restrictions against agents and advisers, and revamp recruiting rules to ease contact with top prospects." "N.C.A.A. May Let Its Top Conferences Play by Their Own Rules," August 5, 2014, Marc Tracy, NYT

Try not to get chills when you read this SI piece on Leonard Fournette

"He's kind of like galvanized us," says Compass. "He's shown the best of New Orleans. They always talk about New Orleans, the murder capital of the world. All the criminals, all the thugs, all the young men who are doing bad. I think, in a small way, Leonard has counterbalanced all the negative."
