They don’t call him the Mad Hatter for nothing. LSU Head Coach Les Miles gave a press conference for the ages here in this little just under 2 minute snippet alone.

Count the Mad Hatter among the ND haters.

LSU Tigers coach Les Miles doesn’t think much of Gunner Kiel, who backed out of his commitment to the Indiana Hoosiers, in order to commit/later back out of committing to Miles’ Tigers in order to finally sign with Notre Dame.

It’s clear Miles is still bitter about it, and he took some shots at Kiel, and in the process, the Fighting Irish football program.

D’eaux Tigers! Alabama Blanks LSU to Claim National Title

Ever since the rematch between Alabama and LSU was announced at the conclusion of the NCAA football season, there has been a heated debate as to whether or not these two teams deserved to face each other in New Orleans.

After all, Alabama lost at home to LSU, and they didn’t even play for their conference championship in December. In contrast, Oklahoma State won the Big 12 and only lost one game on the road.

Even with all of that animosity toward their presence in the game, Nick Saban and his Crimson Tide rolled into hostile territory in New Orleans and executed a defensive game plan that was one of the smartest ever displayed on this big of a stage. They held LSU to 92 total yards of offense, and only allowed the Tigers to cross the 50-yard line once en route to a 21-0 shutout victory to claim the school’s ninth national championship. AJ McCarron threw for 234 yards, and Trent Richardson rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown in the victory.

According to reports from Baton Rouge, the team has suspended running back Spencer Ware and defensive backs Tyrann “Honey Badger” Mathieu and Tharold Simon for the game.

A Provoked Poke in the Ribs of SEC Pride

No group of college football fans, not even Texans, celebrate the sacred autumn rites of Saturday football at a higher volume than our brothers and sisters of the SEC. And the five national championships claimed by SEC football teams in the last decade have supplied their fans with more than enough ammunition to load up their gridiron boasts before they blindly lob them over state lines—a popular SEC pastime.
