LSU Legacy Magazine has an interesting piece in the current issue about the history of the costumed Mike mascot.

Remember when LSU-Tulane was relevant? Since you just read that question on a computer, I bet you don't. I ran across this extremely detailed story about the history of the rivalry, focusing around the 1972 matchup.

It's already time for the 2013 NFL Combine. The first few days are for paperwork and interviews, but Geaux247 has a comprehensive schedule of who will be appearing where over the next few days.

MLB's "The Next Knuckler" competition ended last night with former LSU QB Josh Booty winning the prize, a tryout at AZ Diamondbacks spring camp. Booty beat out an odd group of former college QBs that included his brother John David Booty, early 00's UGA star David Greene, legendary BC QB Doug Flutie, and another former Tiger in Ryan Perriloux. Perriloux also performed well on the show, being eliminated just before the final round. He had such a good performance that the Kansas City Royals contacted him about coming to their spring camp.

Even though he basically works for the conference, he pulls no punches in stating what's wrong in the B1G today and how he thinks it can be fixed.

The long road of the CFB preseason has begun as Bill Connelly begins his series of previewing every single D-1 team.
