The Super Tiger Bowl

The LSU Spring Game is set.

The Super Tiger Bowl will feature a revamped format with the LSU football team being split into two squads to battle for spring practice bragging rights with an actual spring game. Kickoff for the Super Tiger Bowl is scheduled for noon on Saturday, March 24 in Tiger Stadium.

Addai and McFarland, members of the Indianapolis Colts Super Bowl Championship team this year, will serve as guest coaches for one team, while Faulk and Green, both 3-time Super Bowl Championships, will serve on the coaching staff for the other team.

What a great idea to get former stars back to "coach" the teams. Of course, they won't have much influence, but its always a good idea to have Super Bowl champions on your side. It can only benefit the currnet players and even recruiting. I wish they'd drop the "Super" from the name of the game and just call it the "Tiger Bowl," but what do I know.

From all accounts, the team looks great in Spring practice so far and should be in the top five to start 2007. With Glen Dorsey back, the front seven on defense will dominate everyone it plays. Matt Flynn should be just fine at quarterback and he has plenty of talent around him. He might have to do nothing more than hand off to Keiland Williams, who I expect to have a monster year.

The Super Tiger Bowl is slated for March 24 at Noon and is part of a big weekend on campus as the baseball team hosts, Kentucky, Softball hosts Alabama and there's also track and women's tennis.
