Louisiana Sports: New Orleans Saints, LSU Predicted To Have Good Seasons
Written by 

LouisianaIn our country, there are three football seasons: the regular campaign, spring football and waiting for the football season.

 As the season approaches, it's time to start looking at NFL and college predictions. Oddsmakers predict 11 victories for the Saints and 10.5 for LSU. 

According to the online sportsbook, Bodog.com, whose lines generally equate to most of the books in Las Vegas, over/under totals for the NFL and college football do not include playoff, bowl or conference championship games. 

Writes the website about the Saints total: "This exactly the number I had in my mind. I'm more of a pessimist than an optimist, so given age and their division. I lean to under 11." 

Here's how the sportsbook's totals for other NFL teams:

NFC

Atlanta                   13-3
SAINTS                  11-5
Chicago                   1l-5

Bodog.com predicts LSU wins over New Mexico State,  at Mississippi State, at West Virginia, Kentucky at Tennessee, Western Kentucky, at Ole Miss. The Tigers' game with Oregon, Auburn, at Alabama and Arkansas are rated as tossups.

The website doesn't predict any loses for the Tigers.

Bleacher Report has ranked the top 50 loudest college football stadiums. The website ranked LSU's Tiger Stadium the loudest in the land. "When your crowd registers on a seismograph, you come in at No. 1 . LSU, the other Death Valley, is the most frightening place for a team to play, especially if you are unfortunate enough to schedule a game at night. A game in Tiger Stadium is a guaranteed sellout no matter who LSU is playing that week."

Florida ranks No. 4, Tennessee No. 8 and Auburn No. 16.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
