LSU’s Les Miles is effing crazy (NSFW Video)

les-miles

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.

It’s very Coachy McCoachington which is unintentionally funny in itself.

LSU Honey Badger Video, App, Song Drinking Game

honey_badger

Watching the college football national title game Monday night, you might have noticed that Brent Musburger referred to LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu as “the Honey Badger” as much as possible.

And when I say “you might have noticed” I actually mean it was painfully obvious to anyone who watched even a nanosecond of the game. Was he trying to be hip? Did he not know the player’s actual name? Does he just love the nickname? Was he trying to kill by alcohol poisoning the people playing the “Musburger says Honey Badger” drinking game?

Or has a generation of mindless acronyms instead of original nicknames (A-Rod, D-Will, I-Rod etc.) made us all go bucknuts when we hear an actual nickname for an athlete?

Watch two Honey Badger videos after the jump. Both narrators are men with extremely homosexual sounding voices by the way.

For more on the actual player, and the story of how he got his nickname go here

Beware LSU Honey Badger Tyrann Mathieu, Physically and Psychologically

tyrann-mathieu

Funny thing about tonight’s college football national title game, the biggest star on one side, LSU, their Heisman Trophy finalist is actually a cornerback: Tyrann Mathieu.

Another funny thing about the game, he’s trying to get a psychological edge by looking up the names of mothers of Alabama football players for some trash talking on the field.

BCS Title Game #1 LSU vs. #2 Alabama: Brutally Honest Preview

2012-bcs-championship-game

You may wonder why this preview is going up 5 days in advance of the big heavyweight bout. We’re at the point where every bowl game except the big one, the one that really matters, has been played.  Yes, the Cotton Bowl between Arkansas and Kansas State should be a fun one to watch. Much closer to being a true BCS bowl than tonight’s Orange Bowl between the so-called “best teams” from the ACC and Big East.

When talking ACC and especially Big East football, “airquotes” are often required. The ACC is 2-12 all-time in BCS bowls and the Big East simply needs to be stripped of their AQ. There’s no other way- West Virginia this year and UConn last year tell us that BE football is simply not allowed to have nice things.

And yes, there’s a couple other bowls left I didn’t mention that that you haven’t heard of, featuring teams that NO ONE cares about and NO ONE will watch.

So if the Cotton Bowl is a dud…well, let’s just get to the rematch, and this one is for all the Mardi Gras beads.

LSU’s Morris Claiborne Should be a Top 5 NFL Draft Pick

morris-claiborne

LSU is certainly becoming CBU these days. Louisiana State University is Corner Back U. Patrick Peterson left Baton Rouge early to become a two-phase NFL star with the Arizona Cardinals, and the Tigers didn’t miss a beat.

Morris Claiborne is looking like a top 5 NFL draft pick this year, and the Honey Badger Tyrann Mathieu will be a franchise player in a couple years.

LSU’s Les Miles or Michigan’s Brady Hoke for Coach of the Year?

les_miles

Today, the Football Writers Association of America announced five finalists for the 2011 Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award.

In alphabetical order, the finalists are: Mike Gundy (Oklahoma State), Brady Hoke (Michigan), Les Miles (LSU), Bill Snyder (Kansas State), and Dabo Swinney (Clemson).

I’m pretty sure it’s down to the Mad Hatter of the LSU Tigers and Michigan Man Hoke for the Wolverines. And here’s why:

Three SEC West Teams: LSU, Alabama, Arkansas 1-2-3 in BCS

lsu tigers girls

We all know what a chaotic weekend it was in college football. #2, #4 and #5 all went down. And we knew the fallout would be very comprehensive. After their brutal defeat to the Union in the Civil War, champions of the Confederacy were known to say “the South shall rise again!”

And it’s happened, this weekend in 2011- although I’m sure this is nothing like what the southern gentlemen envisioned. The SEC Western division teams: LSU Tigers, Alabama Crimson Tide, and the Arkansas Razorbacks are 1-2-3 in the tonight’s BCS standings.

Yeah, I guess you could say it’s the strongest conference in football; and the strongest division in football.

If you wish to be Captain Obvious.

Alabama Fan with Hot Girlfriend Cries During Tide Loss (Video)

Across all mediums, the #1 Louisiana St. vs #2 Alabama college football “game of the century” was the talk. LSU upset the Crimson Tide in their house 9-6 (OT), in an ugly game that lived up to the hype in terms of being a closely contested hard fought battle, but fell well short in terms of being a fun game to watch.

The Tide going 2-6 on field goal tries explains what happened. And when radio, television, the internet etc. discussed what transpired, the ‘Bama fan crying his eyes out pictured above and videotaped below was a hot topic.

#1 LSU Tigers vs. #2 Alabama Crimson Tide: BRUTALLY HONEST Game Preview

Simply put, if you’re not excited about this game, then you really are with the terrorists.

Maybe not, I think even the Al Qaeda cells in Jalalabad and Tora Bora will tune in for #1 LSU Tigers vs. #2 Alabama Crimson Tide. This is why college football has the best regular season in all of sports, you have an in-season de facto national title game.

Over 600 media credentials have been issued for this weekend, extremely high yes, but more than 800 were issued in 1993 at the Notre Dame vs. Florida State #1 vs. #2 game in South Bend. Irish head coach Lou Holtz invited all of them to his home for a BBQ dinner the Thursday before.

Will Nick Saban do the same?

#1 LSU Tigers vs. #17 Florida Gators: Brutally Honest Game Preview

florida gator cheerleaders

Is there a national championship party in the cards for the Mad Hatter? The LSU Tigers are atop the poll for a second straight week after destroying Kentucky 35-7. QB Justin Jefferson, you remember him? The athlete who pummeled a guy in the parking lot of a bar called Shady’s, (this stuff just writes itself) made his season debut last Saturday after being suspended for the first four following his felony battery charges.

A grand jury reduced it to a misdemeanor last Wednesday, leading Les Miles to reinstate Jefferson as a backup to Jarrett Lee. Jefferson is looking to get more involved in the offense this week, and Miles may acquiesce. For the record, I still think  Jefferson sucks at football, sucks more at life, and the Alabama Crimson Tide is the true #1 team in the nation.

I said all these things in August, and I believe them even more strongly now.

#3 Oregon Ducks vs. #4 LSU Tigers: Brutally Honest Game Preview

oregon-cheerleaders-hot

The Oregon Ducks open up against the LSU Tigers at Cowboys Stadium Saturday night at 7pm CT. Talk about starting fast out of the gate! Two top 5 teams with national title aspirations, and one will go home with those championship hopes severely impaired. Forget warm-up cream puff scheduling in the non-conference. Let’s get right to it!

I’m adding a new wrinkle to the brutally honest game previews this year. I’ll still do two previews each week; only this time It’s going to be a nationally significant/sometimes out of region game in addition to the regional game I’ll be at the press box for. Not only is this the game of the week by miles and miles, it’s also the last two teams I previewed in my 77 in 77. That’s 77 college football teams in 77 days.

So let’s kick 2011 off!
