A Baltimore mom makes sure her son is not partaking in the rioting and brings it to a halt by slapping him around. Hats off to this mom and we need more women like this in America. News coverage from Fox News. The rioting is gone crazy in Baltimore.
A storm of over 75 mph winds, that cover St, Gabriel to Port Allen, La in length, with lots of rain, and a reported tornado on the LSU Campus, and by the I-10 and I-12 split touch down. I was driving down Airline Hwy going to pick up a Uber Customer at the Baton Rouge Airport, and I saw black clouds coming my way, not to mention lighting as well so I cancel the ride, called the customer told them I wasn’t coming to pick them up, because of the bad weather. The customer at the Baton Rouge, Louisiana Airport said who is gonna come pick me up, I told them, I cannot pick you up, and told him to take cover because there is a tornado in the area, the customer said can another Uber driver pick me up, and I told him no one is coming to pick you up…..lol. I floored it and headed to my house to get out of the storm.
According to LSU Coach Miles the spring game will not signify any positions, on the available performances by any player. That means the quarterback battle from Jennings and Harris,basically Brandon Harris can throw 4 touchdowns and run for 3 and still be the backup quarterback, satudays purple and gold game will not give anyone the edge of any position according to Coach Miles. Basically it is like last year when Harris out performed Jennings, in the spring game, but Harris was playing against the 2nd team defense and Jennings was playing against the 1st team defense. This saturday Harris will take some snaps against the 1st team defense and they will be tackling. LSU Defense will be one of the top defenses in the nation which will be displayed this saturday at Tiger Stadium.
Coach Miles was asked the question about Terry Bradshaw’s comments this past weekend, when Bradshaw suggested LSU should start Harris, and if they don’t he will be calling out LSU Footbal during the season. Coach Miles basically said, that anyone is entitled to their opinion and their opinion is important and valid. Since Terry Bradshaw and Brandon Harris are from the same area that is why Bradshaw is speaking out and likes Brandon Harris style of play.
Dailycollegefootball.com was at the Les Miles press conference yesterday, and my phone rings where Les Miles is standing and talking and Coach Miles answers my phone, it’s recording from East Baton Rouge School Parishes offering a substitute position for the day. I had to walk up and get my phone, and put up another recorder, one that doesn’t ring. Coach Miles joked about the computer calling and asking for a person.
Stephen A is really funny when he talks about Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao. He thinks Mayweather is gonna teach Pacquiao, but I must say it’s gonna be the other way around. Mayweather has never fought anyone like Manny, a south paw, who comes at you from a different stance. Stephen A needs to stop being a mouth piece for Mayweather. We are 2 weeks away from one of the greatest fights of the century,and for you youngsters that means the last 100 years. This is gonna be one of the biggest fights ever. Bigger than Sugar Ray Leonard vs Thomas the Hitman Hearns.
As we speak Skip and Stephen A are getting ready to fight in the studio…… saying Marvlous Marvin Hagler doesnt belong in the same sentence with Manny Pacquiao…..LOL, man they were going at it … on First Take.
Dailycollegefootball.com was on the LSU defense side as the Big Cat Drill got underway.The LSU Football players were getting after each other today, defense and offense, and they were not letting up. I actually got a front roll seat for about a few minutes until it started to get crowded. It was pretty intense today on both sides of the field.
The LSU Tigers had their 2nd scrimmage and the defense is dominating the aspect of the scrimmage. According to Les Miles Anthony Jennings was the most productive QB for this scrimmage, and Miles said he threw 2 touchdowns. WR DJ Clark caught 2 td’s and Dural caught a touchdown as well in the scrimmage. LSU gets ready for their annual scrimmage which will take place April 18th.
Gonzaga is sending a message to the rest of the teams as they beat Iowa Hawkeyes by 18 pts. The Zags are rolling and they even have a former wildcat who won a championship with Kentucky, Kyle Wiiltjer who chipped in 24 pts from the outside with 3’s and from the inside. The freshman Sabonis, chipped in 18 pts, who is the son of Arvydas Sabonis who played for the Portland Trail Blazers in the 80’s and 90’s. Pangos helped with point production and is consider the best point guard in the NCAA. It would be interesting for the Zags to meet up with Kentucky, and amazing to see if Gonzaga knocks off the wildcats. I got the Zags knocking off UCLA by 10 or 15, and Duke in a very close game, and they probably will face the Sooners, or Michigan State. In my bracket I do have Kentucky vs Gonzaga in the Championship Game. Mark Few has his team playing with a purpose, the Zags consistently been in the sweet 16, to round it out and end up in the Final Four, which they have been in to the top 3 pretty much throughout the whole year. I would say it would be remarkable if Stockton”s Alma Mater beats Kentucky in the last game of the season. We already know what team America would root for if Kentucky and Gonzaga met up, the underdog, and if Gonzaga won that game it would Pandemonium throughtout the USA.

LSU fell behind early in the game as Aggies House and Jones took control of the game and went up 21-10. LSU jumped back into the game thanks to 3 threes by Hornsby that put LSU in the lead. LSU was up 36-29 with 5 seconds left in the half, as a Aggie guard threw up a prayer only for Roberson from the Aggies catch the miss 3 pt shot and laid it up before the clock ran out. Something told me right then and there when I was watching the game on the SEC Network, I had a bad feeling about that last second basket even though LSU was leading 36-31 going into halftime. You can’t let the opposing team on their home court catch balls in mid-air and make lay ups as time expires.
LSU got a 8 pt lead, but as time went on instead of feeding the ball into Martin and Mickey, the guards starting taking 3 point shots. My question is why is Martin taking three-point shots, Gray walks in misses a layup, and no production from Mickey. If Mickey scores 15 points LSU easily beats Texas AM, also Quarterman at 6ft 6 and 185 lbs trying to take it inside. Quarterman go hit the weights in the offseason, eat some pizza drink some beer put on 15 pounds of muscle then bring it inside. Quarterman was guarding House from the Aggies, House finished 20 pts on the night. House took a 30 ft three and swished it, Quarterman was about 4 feet away as the 6’7 Aggie pulled up from downtown. Quarterman was also 3-11 from the field with 3 threes, he had 5 steals and 8 assists and 9 points from the field. Brian Bridgewater had a good night off the bench with 9 pts 6 rebounds and 1 block.
The question is who is the point guard for LSU, who is running the offense, is it Quarterman, Patterson or Gray, and who are the shooters, and why does everyone try to be the superstar, there should be more assits from each player,Quarterman and Hornsby are the only players passing the ball, and Patterson had no assists. LSU has some soul searching to do to see how far they go. The best thing for them if they make it to the 64 tourney, hopefully they stay far away from Kentucky and Texas AM, especially AM, it seems they know how to beat LSU.
When you have a 8 pt lead you don’t need to take three’s, you need to send the ball down low and get 10 ft shots or foul shots, and that’s where LSU only had 10 attempts from the line, compared to Texas AM with 26, AM made 14 which equalled to 14 points and LSU made 8 which gave them 8pts, that’s a 6 pt difference which was the difference of the game Texas AM 68 LSU 62.
LSU Basketball gets ready for Texas AM tonight as they travel to College Station. The Tigers look to take down the Aggies in front of their fans like they did in Tennesee as they beat the Vols 71-55, very impressive win by the LSU Basketball Team.
Jordan Mickey had 20 points, 11 rebounds and seven blocks Saturday as LSU rode a dominant first-half performance to a 73-55 victory over Tennessee.
“We played the No. 1 team in the country to a two-point game, and we believe we should have possibly won it,” Mickey said. “We came in knowing we’re a good team. We know what we’re capable of doing.”
Hornsby had 16 points and seven assists while leading the perimeter attack for LSU, which shot 9 of 19 from 3-point range. Tim Quarterman added 13 points, six rebounds and six assists.
LSU defeats Kentucky, 95-94, Feb. 11, 1978.
Perhaps the most important regular-season game win of the Dale Brown Era. This victory signified LSU had arrived on the basketball scene.
Kentucky came into the game ranked No. 1 in the country and would later go on to win the national championship.
But on this night at the Assembly Center in Baton Rouge, the Tigers would be victorious. All five of LSU’s starters fouled out of the game. The contest went into overtime. Yet, LSU prevailed at the end.
The stage is set again as no.1 Kentucky Wildcats come into the PMAC and LSU playing good basketball. Are the stars lining up tonight for LSU as they try to put forth an upset over no.1 Kentucky Wildcats.
The Arena is sold out, on Super Tuesday on ESPN, you know the whole nation could be tuning in as LSU try’s to knock off the wildcats, which they did last year under Johnny Jones. If LSU Tigers guard Hornsby and Gray hit there 3’s and open looks, and Quarterman has a big game, and Mickey and Martin control the boards and dominate the inside, we might be seeing a upset.
I got a chance to meet some Kentucky Wildcat Fans, it was Mr. and Mrs.Winn, who are traveling through as they watch their Wildcats take on the Tigers of LSU. Mr. Winn was a basketball coach at Paducah High School for quite a while. I really enjoyed my talk with him and his wife, and they have a daughter who went to Ole Miss, and the Winns were very amazed how LSU and Ole Miss do not like each other, in other words a serious rivalry, as I told him the last football game in Tiger Stadium, even their women were crying as LSU beat no.2 Ole Miss 10-7, and we even sent their star quarterback running for the tunnel before the game was over.
So there you go folks, lights camera and college basketball. With a Capital A.
