Wow. In case you haven’t heard already, LSU went to Tuscaloosa and beat Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide for the first time since 2011. Many of you, like me, are still riding the high from Saturday. These gumbos are much more enjoyable to do when we have a lot of good news, and thankfully, this season has given us no shortage of good news. In today’s gumbo we will get you caught up on all the stories, news, notes and social media frenzy you may have missed from the weekend.
That piece from could not do a better job summing up what this game was, it was more than a game and you could feel it. I often get anxious watching LSU Football but I couldn’t sit still a whole two hours before kickoff.
And in honor of how Jake closed out that article...
Poseur wrote his usual ‘Behind The Box Score’ piece that looks at some of the most important numbers from the game and breaks down what they meant and how we got there. He discusses both QB performances as he also dives into the shows put on by each teams respective RB.
LSU Football’s social media account was great as always. I will embed some stuff below but I highly recommend you go back and watch all of their postgame content on Twitter or Instagram.

Joe Burrow and Clyde Edwards-Helaire both stood out for the LSU offense on Saturday. Joe Burrow possibly even locked up the Heisman trophy. Their performances earned them ‘SEC’s Co-Offensive Player Of The Week.’
The kickoff time for the Arkansas game on November 23 was announced today. It will, in fact, be a night game at Tiger Stadium.
Bruce Feldman, who has written about Ed Oregon quite a bit throughout his career, wrote another brilliant feature this week in The Athletic ($$$) that elaborates on what this game meant for Coach O and how Ed O’s transformation from the coach he was at Ole Miss is complete.
Coach O talked about Joe Brady and potentially when Tiger fans can expect them to work out a contract for LSU’s hot shot passing game coordinator. In a world where Kliff Kingsburry gets an NFL coaching job, it does not need to be stated how much offensive minds are valued in football. Especially a guy that took LSU from an average offense to one that is one of the best in the country. We know a raise is in store for Joe Brady, now it is just a matter of when and how much.
Ed Orgeron held his weekly press conference on Monday where he announced that Austin Deculus is doubtful which could also be interpreted as “will not play” @ Ole Miss on Saturday. For details on Deculus and more from O’s Monday press conference, click here.
More injury news: WRs Justin Jefferson and Jamar Chase were not at Monday’s practice.
Not many eyes were on the basketball team over the weekend, but Will Wade’s crew took care of business against Bowling Green on Friday night.
I want to reiterate how special of a day Saturday was, for every LSU fan, everywhere. I think I may of had even people text me about that game than I do that text me on my birthday. My mom, who never watches football, even felt the need to call me after the game. That game was huge and it should be celebrated as such. Keep on cherishing days like Saturday because those types of games are why we wait through all of the darkness and despair that can come with being a sports fan.
To close out today, I only have one question
Roll Tide what?
