LSU in 1929, via LSU's instagram page
It's amazing to think how little there was on campus back then, and also how nearly all of the buildings in this photo are still standing.
Another day of Spring Ball in the books and a few interesting names to talk about. Miles acknowledged that Isom is trying out and that he has much less "reservations with her [being part of the team] than I would with any number of other people who frankly didn't know what they were getting in to." He also made it clear that she would have to bring an advantage to the team to be considered and that there was no timetable for the results of her or any other potential walk on's ongoing tryouts this spring. Both Miles and Isom herself mentioned the high winds yesterday not being conductive to good kicking tryouts.
The other interesting name to hear was Elliot Porter, who long time readers may remember as the crux of an argument about oversigning a few seasons ago. Miles liked his play and said he had been taking reps at Center. The full Miles press conference is posted after the break and be sure to scroll down on our main page to see some Big Cat Drill video we posted last night.
