    Baton Rouge Morning Advocate ^ | 08-11-2020 | Uncle Sham
    LSU has created a committee to evaluate the names of buildings on campus and decide if any need to be changed because they are “a reminder of a racist and segregated past.” The 16-member committee is made up of faculty, staff, students and alumni. In June, the LSU Board of Supervisors voted to remove Troy H. Middleton’s name from the university library. Middleton is a former LSU president who voiced support for segregation in letters. Hours after the vote, Middleton’s name and bust were removed from the building. Troy H. Middleton's name removed from LSU library hours after Board approval...

    With this latest insult to it's majority white fan base, LSU and many of it's former black basketball players put their skin tones above what is best for the school and it's support from fans in another display of total ignorance in support of Black Lives Matter. How many more insults can a state financed institution throw at it's fans who just want to be left alone? That the school actively supports this effort and that it is occurring during an election year is criminal. The leftist behind all of this have destroyed one thing after another in their demonic...

  • Joe Burrow posts funny tweet about hand size criticism

    LSU product Joe Burrow is on track to become the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft, and he has a lot of strengths going for him, in terms of his skill set, but hand size isn’t one of them. And while it may seem silly, it’s important to point out that many of the game’s best quarterbacks have hands that are at least 9 1/2 inches, if not bigger. Smaller guys, such as Drew Brees, have been able to counteract the issues about their height with their large hands. Burrow measured only nine inches at the NFL Scouting...

For those unfamiliar ... the Tigers have celebrated wins this season using the Lil ELT song as a sort of unofficial anthem. It's taken a life of its own and it's freakin' awesome. John Emery, Peter Parrish and other players pulled out all the stops in the 1600 Penn version ... featuring an unidentified woman stealing the show. Of course, now that LSU are the champs...

    The LSU Tigers defeated the Clemson Tigers in the College Football Playoff Championship game on Monday night and they have claimed their fourth national title in school history. And while the team and the school have been celebrating all week, they will take their partying from Baton Rouge, La. to Washington D.C. On Wednesday, it was confirmed by Newsweek that President Donald Trump will have the LSU Tigers as his guest at the White House on Friday as he honors the team for their championship win. One of the biggest questions for the ceremony is what will Trump feed the...

    Saying it was against building policy, a Mercedes-Benz Superdome police officer was telling LSU football players to extinguish their victory cigars Monday night in the jubilant locker room minutes after winning the national championship when he felt LSU alum and NFL pro Odell Beckham Jr. slap him on the backside. The 48-year-old lieutenant suppressed the urge to punch Beckham in retaliation, called the New Orleans Police Department a little more than a day later and told investigators he wanted to press charges, according to court records. Police by Thursday morning had obtained a warrant to arrest Beckham, 27, on a...

    Six football seasons ago, Ed Orgeron was out of work, spending his Friday nights sitting in the stands of Mandeville High School (Louisiana) watching his son Parker play. On Saturday afternoons he’d turn on the television. “Sitting on the sofa at my house,” Orgeron said. “I remember watching SEC games, going, ‘I know I can compete with these guys given the right place.’ ” He’d once been head coach at Ole Miss, but he won just three SEC games in three seasons. He’d essentially been retired into Southern football lore as a colorful character who couldn’t coach a lick. He’d...

    LSU offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger's daughter-in-law, Carley McCord, was one of five people killed in a plane crash in Lafayette, Louisiana, on Saturday. McCord, a sideline reporter and sports talk radio host covering the New Orleans Pelicans, Saints and other sports, was traveling on a private plane to Atlanta to watch No. 1 LSU play No. 4 Oklahoma in a College Football Playoff semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. Her husband, Steve Ensminger Jr., was already in Atlanta. His father is coaching the Peach Bowl. LSU coach Ed Orgeron told ESPN's Holly Rowe, "Our thoughts and prayers out to him....

    Angelle Terrell is a Cajun who grew up in Lafayette (the capital of Cajun Louisiana), but who moved to Baton Rouge when she got married. For those outside of Louisiana, Baton Rouge, where I live, has a French name, and it’s in the southern part of the state (where the Cajuns are), but it is not a Cajun city. Sometimes it feels like Shreveport South. That’s not necessarily a bad thing — it’s the capital of a state, the northern half of which is Anglo Protestant — but it does give you an idea of why a Cajun woman from...

    President Trump attended his third major sporting event in 13 days Saturday, traveling to Tuscaloosa, Ala. to take in the much-anticipated SEC matchup between the hometown Crimson Tide and the LSU Tigers. Trump and first lady Melania Trump, sitting in a box one tier above the field, were introduced to the capacity crowd at Bryant-Denny Stadium just before the game began. The couple received sizable cheers, with a few boos mixed in. The crowd started chanting “USA, USA” shortly after they were introduced....

    A man was taken into custody Saturday after he stabbed a "Baby Trump" protest balloon on display near the University of Alabama, where the president was attending the Crimson Tide's football game against LSU. Hoyt Hutchinson, 32, was charged with felony first-degree criminal mischief, according to the Tuscaloosa News. The paper reported that Hutchinson posted a Facebook Live video saying he planned to deflate the balloon depicting Trump as a crying baby wearing a diaper and holding a cell phone.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because LSU and police have not released the players' names...</p>

    A former NFL player-turned-high school health teacher and assistant football coach was arrested Friday for assaulting the same student twice — and promptly resigned, police said. Sheddrick Wilson, 44, who played wide receiver at LSU and for the Houston Oilers, allegedly assaulted the 16-year-old at Archbishop Stepinac HS during two separate occasions, court records show. Sometime in January or February 2017 while Wilson was teaching health class at the prestigious White Plains school, he ordered the victim, known only as “JM” in court papers, to the front of the classroom and asked him to remove his glasses, records show. Wilson...

    LSU asked for all the smoke, and boy did it get it. Alabama rendered the Tigers’ pedestrian offense scoreless, while allowing it to total 196 yards on 60 plays from scrimmage. Quarterback Joe Burrow was in fear for his life all game long, especially with Quinnen Williams, Isaiah Buggs, Christian Miller and Anfernee Jennings in his face. He was sacked five times, with two of them coming via Williams. With quite a few National Football League scouts in attendance at Tiger Stadium, the Birmingham native is looking like a concrete first-round pick for next year’s draft. Williams, a redshirt sophomore,...

    here’s a one-road loop through Assumption College’s campus, a two-lane ribbon that winds past the all-purpose athletic field, through the quintessential New England foliage and, somehow, into the heart of the College Football Playoff race. It’s impossible to navigate this year’s first College Football Playoff standings without detouring through Assumption, which plays in the Northeast-10 Conference and whose football program is modest enough that the women’s soccer team lobbed crosses into portable goals in front of the goalposts on Monday. Three decades apart, two central figures in this year’s FBS title chase graduated from here – LSU graduate transfer Cole...
