After claiming the No. 6 spot in the first ranking of schools by the College Football Playoff committee, the Alabama Crimson Tide will next travel to Baton Rouge to take on the LSU Tigers on November 8. LSU has also claimed a spot among the Top 25 schools, ranking at No. 19, and the team will also experience a bye in Week 10 of the season. Six more rankings will be announced through December 7, but the November 8 meeting between the two SEC West teams has already garnered high ticket prices on the secondary market.
U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu is in the news again for the wrong reason. This time, it is not a controversy about her residency or her campaign flights, but her misguided behavior at the LSU-Mississippi State game last Saturday. Sadly, the Senator decided to participate in a keg stand by pouring beer into the mouth of a kid.

Down here in the Bayou State, add to those special dates Halloween night 54 years ago when Billy Cannon made football history with his 87 yard run to beat Ole Miss and keep the Tigers undefeated. His story is the rise and fall, than the rise again by LSU’s all time sports hero. And guess what? I played a minor role in what became Billy’s personal nightmare and fall from grace.
Congrats to Charlie Agostino and the wonderful work being performed at the Louisiana Business and Technology Center for their latest achievements.
In the 1990’s, the Louisiana public was shocked by the revelations that Tulane had granted to certain government officials the right to grant university scholarships to individuals.
Louisiana State University, located in my hometown of Baton Rouge, takes on a new president this week. And to say that he has a big job ahead of him is an understatement. Educationally, the state’s largest university is a mixed bag of quality and mediocrity, typical of many public universities.
In the BCS national championship game, Notre Dame refuses to come out of the locker room giving Alabama the first forfeit national championship in history.
