BATON ROUGE, LA - Seventeen players from LSU's 2013 football team will be on display for the NFL on Wednesday, as the school will host its annual Pro Day starting at noon at the Charles McClendon Indoor Practice Facility.
All 32 NFL teams, including seven head coaches, are expected to be on hand for the workout. The list of head coaches who are expected to be in attendance include Sean Payton (Saints), Marvin Lewis (Bengals), Bill O'Brien (Texans), Rex Ryan (Jets), Mike Zimmer (Vikings), Chip Kelly (Eagles) and Mike Tomlin (Steelers).
The 2012 Louisiana election season for the most part is a ho-hum, but, there is one election that is humming.
It is a foregone conclusion that Republican Mitt Romney will capture Louisiana’s eight electoral votes. States get one electoral vote for each U.S. House District, plus two for the U.S. senators from the state.
I guess we can put the newspaper battles being raged between The Advocate and the Times Picayune into the area of politics since, in reality, to some extent, the futures of South Louisiana, New Orleans area and Baton Rouge could be shaped by the paper war.
Today's best bet of Louisiana Politics: Louisiana Demos get a new exec. director, a great political lineup at LSU, Zach Kopplin talks Louisiana education reform and "creationsim", Special Louisiana legislative session and more
As usual in these kinds of cases, the reason for the intensity of Louisiana’s Third House District contest between U.S. Reps. Charles Boustany and Jeff Landry is because they are so similar on the issues – which produces an opportunity actually to dissect and discuss the issues.
Trying for his fifth term, Boustany, from an old-line political family in Lafayette, got matched with freshman Landry, with a much newer political pedigree, because of redistricting brought about by Louisiana’s failure to grow much in population in the last decade. Both being Republicans in an area that has evolved into a solidly conservative national electoral district, one will win.
