LSU Hopes To Live Well Vs. Alabama Tide In Death Valley
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

sportseditorDeath Valley has been called "the scariest place to play in America."

But defending national champion Alabama likes playing in Tiger Stadium the Crimson Tide has a 24-6-2 record in Tiger Stadium. At venues other than Tiger Stadium, Alabama's advantage in the series is only 21-17-3


On Saturday LSU hosts Alabama at 2:30 p.m. for a game being televised by CBS.

The only thing keeping the Tigers from suffering a five-game losing streak in home day games is Tennessee's inability to count it defensive players.

Under coach Les Miles, the Tigers are 42-4 in night games and 16-23 in day games. At home, Miles' Tigers are 28-2 at night and 6-5 in the day.

Because CBS generally televises the SEC's top games at 2:30 on Saturday afternoons, the Tigers have had to tackle many of its toughest opponents during the day. And while LSU has won games with the CBS television audiences watching, and all but one of the Tigers' past 17 regular-season losses has occurred on CBS.

The exception was a 30-27 overtime loss to Tennessee on Sept. 26, 2005, a game carried on ESPN2 that was moved to Monday night because of Hurricane Rita, Since that loss, LSU has won all 26 of its games televised on ESPN networks.

If you've been to Tiger Stadium for day games, you've heard PA announcer Dan Borne tell those in attendance that "the sun has found its home in the western sky, and it is now Saturday night in Death Valley."

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.
