Miles confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that PJ Lonergan and Craig Loston are healthy and will travel with the team and expect to play this weekend. Not much else to glean from the above video, other than a moment where Miles starts asking himself questions and complementing himself for asking the question.

When UF's Trey Burton called LSU's secondary "not as good as advertised" you knew it wasn't going to end well. Quote the Honey Badger: "lol Boy you are Soft as cotton!"

How does this year so far stack up to the '03 and '07 statistically? The offense is slightly more productive and more balanced than either of those years. Meanwhile, the defense may turn out to be the kind you write songs about.

The NCAA is thinking of cutting the number of scholarships allowed down to 80 as a way to pay for a higher cost of attendance scholarship for the remaining players. Like many bad ideas, this one is brought to you by UGA President Michael Adams.

If a bookie will still let you take the original spread in the Bama/Ole Miss game, It's time to bet the farm.

Probably in response to LSU fans complaints about no SEC night games, the SEC trotted out some back room exec to give the same tired speech about how game times are in the networks hands and the league can't yadda yadda yadda. You know what SEC (and the LSU AD's office for that matter)? I don't care that you can't do anything about it, I just want to see some progress made in stopping this from happening. It seems every year we go through this same song and dance with pissed off fans and ADs who are powerless to do anything about it. Can we please get some sort of concession in writing in the next contract? 

LSU Fishing is in the middle of a National Tournament qualifying competition out in College Station, Tx this weekend and start the 2nd day 6 pounds off the leader and with teams in 6th, 11th, and 13th place. The tourney continues through Saturday.

Basketball starts in less than a month, which means it's time for coach Johnson to bean undergrads in the now annual dodgeball tournament. It's also time for Media Day with both Coach Johnson and Coach Caldwell. Videos of each are posted after the break.

Only one former Tiger remains in the MLB post-season, current starting 2B for St Louis, Ryan Theriot. The current Tigers continue fall practice leading up to a full-on intra-squad scrimmage later this fall. The baseball team was also the opponent in this week's edition of Meaux vs. , which is posted after the break. And Hey!, Go Vote For Mo!

If the Cajuns beat North Texas this weekend, then USL will become bowl eligible a helluva lot faster than anyone expected (and Lafayette will become an unbearable place to live for an LSU fan) Time to start cranking out those Hudspeth-to-any-available-midlevel-D-1-HC-job rumors...

Those of you using DirecTV to catch WWL CBS in the NOLA area, along with Houston, San Antonio, and St. Louis should be aware that a contract dispute could get the network pulled on Nov. 1st. I'll remind you that LSU-Bama is Nov. 5th.

Prayers for a speedy recovery to LSU Cheerleader Kip Carter who was involved in a hit-and-run on River Road last weekend.
