Has any team ever been hotter than LSU is right now? The Tigers easily extended their epic winning streak to 23 games by winning three games against Texas Southern and Southern Miss by a combined score of 36-9. LSU broke open a 3-2 game Sunday with six runs in the sixth, capped by Blake Dean’s three-run triple. The Tigers will host UC Irvine in a super-regional next weekend, in what will most assuredly be the final send-off for Alex Box Stadium. If you predicted in February that the final weekend at the Box would come in super-regional play, then pat yourself on the back and call yourself Nostradamus.
Holliday got only three offers out of high school -- Southern, Southern Miss and LSU. Miles was intrigued by Holliday's numbers at an LSU high school camp. Wearing high-top basketball shoes, Holliday ran a 4.28 40. Asked to run it again, Holliday posted a 4.27 without even getting in a track stance. The only question left for Miles was whether the track speed could translate to football.
