Goin’ up on a Tuesday.

NCAA Football: Citrus Bowl-Louisiana State vs Louisville Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

There’s a positive buzz surrounding LSU right now - in Baton Rouge and beyond.

Things are going well for our Tigers in the NFL, with Leonard Fournette receiving a great deal of praise from coaches and teammates. But Marrone also made it clear Fournette would need to earn the starting job — nothing is going to be handed to him in Jacksonville.

Inside the Pylon also has this excellent breakdown of former Tiger Ethan Pocic, who will likely start for the Seattle Seahawks.

Travin Dural is staying in Louisiana as a pro and is ‘ecstatic’ to have a shot at the making the roster in his home state.

Former LSU tight end Desean Smith is now a Carolina Panthers rookie and was signed this morning.

Football season for the home team is still a ways away, but since when did the program ever taking a break from recruiting and making improvements?

Offensive Coordinator Matt Canada will be headed to Atlanta to visit with Elite 11 quarterback Justin Fields to try and win his commitment for the recruiting class of 2018.

Canada also addressed the media about concerns in regards to Danny Etling’s injuries and the offensive scheme in general.

Things are finally looking up in basketball as well, with recent staff changes and quality athletes transferring into to the program in recent times.

We can also expect to see some changes made to the PMAC itself, with architects planning to make major renovations for modernization.

No. 8 LSU baseball will close out the regular season today in a match-up versus NSU in Baton Rouge at 6:30 p.m.

Radio broadcast of the contest can be heard on www.LSUsports.net/live.
