LSU vs. Wisconsin at Lambeau Field - September 3rd, 2:30PM
0 Day, 0 hour, 0 minute

7/29/16 5:50 am CST

Good morning, Tiger Fans,

With just six days until the start of LSU preseason football practice, today we’ll begin looking at six incoming freshmen we’re really looking forward to seeing in purple and gold. Then we’ll get you up to speed on the latest relevant news before closing out with our Countdown to Game Day. Here we go…

Six Incoming Freshmen We’re Most Looking Forward to Seeing in Purple and Gold – Part 1 of 2

Donavaughn Campbell

This 6-4, 347-pound freshman offensive guard from Ponchatoula has the size and potential to play as a freshman. As Mike Detillier pointed out in a recent Q&A on this site, Campbell is a force in run blocking, driving his opponents off the ball and physically moving them down the field. Because of his ability to do so, he could join Ethan Pocic, Maea Teuhema and Toby Weathersby as current Tiger offensive linemen who have played under Les Miles as freshmen. Of course, in order to do so, Campbell is going to have his work cut out for him with all three of those linemen returning as well as fellow guards Josh Boutte and K.J. Malone who gained valuable experience last season. Whether or not Campbell gets time in the limelight this season, his future as a Tiger is very bright.

Drake Davis

With Malachi Dupre, Travin Dural and D.J. Chark returning, not to mention Tyron Johnson and Jazz Ferguson, it will take a special kind of freshman to see the field at wide receiver in purple and gold this season. That, however, is just the type of player many expect Drake Davis to be. Heralded for his leaping ability, speed and athleticism (I encourage Tiger fans to check out his dunk highlights here) at IMG Academy, Davis was a 4-star recruit with offers from all over the country. Unfortunately for the 6-4, 215-pound receiver, he was still finishing up school while fellow freshmen receivers Dee Anderson and Stephen Sullivan were gaining a valuable advantage this spring as early enrollees. Anderson and Sullivan were very impressive, so if Drake wants to make an instant splash, he’ll need to get off to a fast start in fall camp. Judging from his senior football highlights, Davis is well suited for anything dealing with the word fast. If Davis is unable to see the field as wide receiver, don’t be surprised to see his speed and athleticism put to use on special teams.

Rahssan Thornton

If Rahssan Thornton’s first week of practice is anything like fellow freshman Devin White’s was in the spring, the Tigers’ 2016 linebacker class could be a lot fiercer than first perceived. Listed at 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Thornton has speed going for him more so than size. Fortunately for Thornton, LSU’s new 3-4 defensive scheme under Dave Aranda and the fact that the Tigers are still somewhat thin at linebacker should give him an opportunity for early playing time. Of course, the freshman linebacker who is most likely to receive significant playing time this season is White because of the waves he’s made in the spring. In fact, Coach Miles said recently that White will play in every game. Still, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Thornton on the field at times this year adding quality depth to the Tigers’ linebacker corps.

Now for a few newsy items before moving on to our Countdown to Game Day:

For the second time in three years, LSU running back Leonard Fournette has won the Corbett Award, presented annually to the most outstanding amateur male and female athletes in the state of Louisiana. Fournette claimed his first Corbett Award following his senior season at St. Augustine High School as he wrapped up one of the most decorated prep football careers in Louisiana history. Now two years later, Fournette becomes the first two-time winner of the male Corbett Award since Shaquille O’Neal won in back-to-back years in 1991 and 1992. Fournette, O’Neal and Pete Maravich are the only two-time male winners in Corbett Award history.

AthlonSports has published its ranking of SEC running back tandems for 2016 and has LSU’s tandem of Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice as No. 2. Their top-ranked tandem is Georgia’s Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. Just as I disagreed with their ranking of Les Miles as the 25th best collegiate coach, I also disagree with this ranking as I think LSU’s duo is deserving of the No. 1 spot. Of course, I recognize that I might just be a little biased ;). 

Now, with 36 days remaining until LSU’s season opener vs Wisconsin at Lambeau Field on September 3rd, let’s continue our countdown by looking back on the history of LSU's live Bengal tiger mascot, which began in 1936. Collecting 25 cents from each student, LSU purchased its first Bengal tiger for $750 from the Little Rock zoo. Born on October 10, 1935, the new mascot was originally named Sheik after his father. He was renamed to Mike after LSU's popular athletic trainer Mike Chambers and arrived on campus October 21, 1936. LSU’s first tiger mascot was even once kidnapped by Tulane fans in 1950 on the eve of their annual game, which ended in a 14-14 tie. You can read more on that in this interesting article that was published a few years ago. After 20 years as LSU’s mascot, Mike I died in 1956 from kidney disease. Students quickly funded the purchase of Mike II, who was born 2/28/56 and was unveiled on campus on September 29, 1956. While some say Mike II died of pneumonia at just eight months of age and was secretly replaced by a second Bengal tiger, the LSU media guide states he died of pneumonia in the spring of 1958. Mike III (1958-1976), Mike IV (1976-1990) and Mike V (1990-2007) followed as LSU’s live mascots, and all witnessed varying degrees of success, ranging from National Championship seasons (1958, 2003) and SEC Championship seasons (1958, 1961, 1970, 1986, 1988, 2001, 2003) to losing seasons (1975, 1981, 1983, 1989-1994, 1998-1999). Perhaps Mike VI, who arrived in Baton Rouge from the Great Cats of Indiana on August 25, 2007, has been the most successful mascot, reigning for one National Championship (2007), two SEC Championships (2007, 2011) and five double-digit win seasons in his nine years (2007, 2010-2013). Unfortunately, Mike VI was recently diagnosed with spindle cell sarcoma, a form of cancer. It's estimated that with treatment, he'll live 1-2 more years. I know I speak for all Tiger fans everywhere when I wish Mike VI nothing but the best.

One last tidbit: Former LSU pitcher extraordinaire Anthony Ranaudo collected his first hit since his high school days on Wednesday and he did it in style. His home run was the first for a White Sox pitcher in seven years, and you can check it out here.

Good morning, Tiger Fans,

Coach Les Miles held his annual meeting with the Baton Rouge Rotary Club yesterday and by all accounts it was an entertaining event even though football was rarely discussed. Miles spent much of his time expressing support for local law enforcement in light of the recent Baton Rouge shootings and entertained the crowd with stories of being raised as the son of a law enforcement officer, standing up to an elementary school bully, and with other anecdotes delivered as only he could. Here’s a very brief video montage of Miles entertaining the crowd, as tweeted by Brian Holland.

When Miles did speak about football from the podium or to local media who were covering the event, he reportedly gave an update on LSU’s two signees who have not yet enrolled, DT Edwin Alexander and DE Andre Anthony. Alexander is expected to enroll “shortly,” although Miles was less confident about Anthony. As stated last month, Anthony’s hold up has to do with waiting for clearance of his transcripts from the NCAA clearinghouse. Miles suggested that an appeal may be necessary, although they’re not at that point yet. Miles also indicated that kicker Colby Delahoussaye will miss a portion of preseason camp, as expected, while he recovers from the second-degree burns and emotional trauma he endured in last weekend’s tragic car crash. He also confirmed that alcohol was not involved in the accident, which occurred as the three players were en route to a wedding reception. 

Another LSU coach who spoke publicly recently is recruiting coordinator and D-line coach Ed Orgeron who joined 104.5 FM’s Culotta and the Prince show on Tuesday. Coach O mentioned two defensive linemen – Rashard Lawrence and Glen Logan – as newcomers who could see early playing time. Logan, he said, reported to camp a little heavy but is down to 310 pounds and is ready to go. While speaking of big bodies, Coach O said that last year’s defensive line was a little on the small side, averaging 275 pounds, while the teams that gave them trouble had offensive lines that averaged about 325 pounds. This year the Tigers’ D-line averages 300-320 and has quality “two-deep” depth across the board. Of course, part of the increased weight average has to do with moving to a 3-4 defense, but still, it was obvious in Coach O’s comments that he believed this line will be better equipped to handle big physical lines like those of Alabama, Ole Miss and Arkansas, which is good to know. If you’ve got about 12 minutes to spare, you can hear his full interview here. By the way, yesterday was Coach O’s 55th birthday.

Turning to basketball, I’m very happy to pass along the following news of former Tiger Keith Hornsby signing a free agent deal with the Dallas Mavericks. Here’s wishing him a long and prosperous NBA career.

DALLAS MAVERICKS SIGN LSU PLAYER KEITH HORNSBY

BATON ROUGE – The positive rehab from a second surgery that ended his senior season early took a big step forward Wednesday when LSU guard Keith Hornsby, who played the last two seasons and graduated in May, signed a contract with the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks.

Hornsby missed the first part of the season and then was reinjured and had to miss the end of the 2015-16 season.

Hornsby (6-4, 210) went undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft after a 1,000-point collegiate career at the University of North Carolina-Asheville and LSU. After graduating from prep power Oak Hill Academy, Hornsby began his collegiate career at UNC-Asheville before transferring to LSU for his junior and senior seasons.

In two years at LSU, the Williamsburg, Va., native played in 53 games (52 starts) and finished with averages of 13.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 33.6 minutes per game. As a senior, Hornsby averaged 13.1 points, second on the team to 2016 NBA Draft first overall pick Ben Simmons.

Now for a few tidbits before continuing with our countdown to the start of LSU football:

• One-time LSU football commit and 5-star safety, Jacoby Stevens, is set to announce his school of choice on August 8th at 2:30 pm CT. His finalists are Auburn, Alabama, Georgia and LSU.

• LSU extended a scholarship offer to class of 2020 pro-style QB Harrison Bailey, a 6-4, 195-pound prospect from Marietta HS. That’s right, Class of 2020, meaning he hasn’t even started high school yet. The young man (kid really) already holds offers from Alabama, Florida, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M. I never make to much out of these things because so much can happen in four years. Heck, a lot can happen in one year, as evidenced by the following tidbit with seems appropriate for #ThrowbackThursday…

• A year ago today I reported that 2017 quarterback target Nowell Narcisse committed to Auburn and said I wasn’t too worried about it since there was still a year and a half between then and 2017 Signing Day. As you know well, Narcisse is now back on board, joining Myles Brennan to give LSU two elite QB commits in this year’s class.

• NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranked his Top 15 sophomores in college football and two Tigers made the list: outside linebacker Arden Key at No. 4 and running back Derrius Guice at No. 8.

Now let’s continue our Countdown to Game Day, which has already reached the 37-day mark, by looking at one of the all-time greatest Tigers to ever play the game – No. 37, Tommy Casanova. During his time at LSU from 1969 to1971, Casanova (6'1", 186) was an extremely versatile athlete who played offense and defense, returned punts and kickoffs, and did just about everything except handle the water cart. Casanova was selected to the College Football All-America Team and the All-SEC Team during each of his three years as a Tiger, and in September of 1971, Sports Illustrated included Casanova on their cover along with the headline, “Tommy Casanova of LSU, Best Player in the Nation.” (Click here to see the cover image.) At that time, Casanova was a top contender for the Heisman Trophy, but a pulled hamstring in the second game of the 1971 season sidelined him for five weeks and pretty much took him out of the running. One of Casanova’s more notable individual performances came in a 1970 LSU win against Ole Miss that wrapped up an Orange Bowl bid for the Tigers. Casanova returned two punts for touchdowns that day, tying a national record, and LSU’s Craig Burns added a third. As the Tigers steadily increased their lead in the second half en route to a 61-17 win, LSU fans who hadn't seen their team beat the Rebels since 1964 began to throw oranges on the field. Casanova went on to a successful NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals from 1972-1977 and was selected to the Pro Bowl in ’74, ’75, ’76, and ’77. While playing for the Bengals, Casanova began to pursue his M.D., and in 1977 he quit football to pursue his degree full-time. Casanova is now an ophthalmologist (eye surgeon) in his hometown of Crowley, LA.

Oh, almost forgot: I’ve updated our Ticket Exchange with several new listings.

Good morning, Tiger Fans,

We’ll start today’s extra-strength daily dose with a little news on the basketball front: Coach Johnny Jones has announced that former Tiger basketball great and New Orleans prep legend Randy Livingston will join the LSU staff as an assistant coach. Livingston was one of the best prep basketball players to ever play in Louisiana, leading Newman High to three consecutive state championships from 1991-1993 and earning USA Today All-American First Team honors. He also shared the National Prep Player of the year award with Jason Kidd in 1992 and Rasheed Wallace in 1993. From there, he went on to LSU where his collegiate career was marred by knee injuries. Still, the 6-foot-4 guard established himself as a special talent and was selected in the second round of the 1996 NBA draft by the Houston Rockets. Livingston enjoyed 11 seasons in the NBA and then went on to play several years in the Turkish league and the NBA-D League. With that kind of playing experience, there’s no doubt that he knows the game extremely well. As for his coaching ability, all I know is that he served as a coach in the NBA D-League for two seasons. Most recently, Livingston’s been working in Australia where he put together a scouting service for men’s and women’s college prospects, something that should come in handy in keeping LSU’s Aussi connection alive and well. And since he’s a New Orleans native and legend, he should help in keeping the state’s top talent at home. Here’s hoping this hire is just what’s needed to give Coach Johnny Jones’ Tigers’ a much-needed boost.   

Now for some news on the football recruiting front: LSU picked up its fourth commitment in five days yesterday when 2017 defensive tackle Neil Farrell (6-4, 295) gave his verbal pledge. Farrell hails from Mobile, Alabama’s Murphy High School and is “only” a three-star, but when you see his offer list you know that you can safely ignore that ranking. Earlier this month, he went to Alabama’s camp and received an offer from Nick Saban, and then a couple of weeks later went to Florida State’s camp and received one from Jimbo Fisher. In fact, the young man holds offers from many additional top programs including Clemson, Florida and Michigan, and that should tell you that he’s a big-time prospect. If you need more proof, you can check out his impressive video highlights. With Farrell’s pledge, LSU’s 2017 class now contains 18 commitments and is ranked No. 4 in the nation according to 247Sports’ team rankings.

Sticking to the topic of football, recently we’ve written about returning Tigers who will likely play greater roles this season, and we’ll continue along those lines today. So far we’ve covered Josh Boutte, Toby Weathersby, Tyron Johnson and J.D. Moore on offense, and Greg Gilmore, Frank Herron, Duke Riley and Corey Thompson on defense. (You can find those write-ups here.) Today we’ll conclude the series with a look at a few veterans who will probably be counted on more heavily on special teams this year. Here we go… 

Returning Tigers Who Will Likely Play Greater Roles this Season
Part III: Special Teams

The obvious player to write about here is punter Josh Growden. With Jamie Keehn having graduated after handling all of the Tigers’ punting duties for the past three seasons, Growden is set to take over as LSU’s third consecutive Australian punter without having ever punted in a live game. His performance will obviously have a major impact. Another returning Tiger who could play a much greater role this season than last is kicker Colby Delahoussaye since Trent Domingue has transferred to Texas. In light of Delahoussaye’s recent tragic accident, it’s hard to say at this point how much he will be able to participate in preseason activities, which could open the door for true freshman kicker Connor Colt or sophomore Cameron Gamble to claim the starting placekicking job. Of course, I hope and pray for Delahoussaye’s quick recovery, not only because he’s a very valuable, experienced member of the team, but because he’s a fine young man who’s been through an unthinkable ordeal. One last player to mention here is Donté Jackson whose elite speed I hope to see more fully utilized in the return game. Last year as a freshman, the speedster returned eight kickoffs for 164 yards and four punts for six yards. Every time Jackson gets his hands on the ball he’s a threat to bust a big play, and I hope to see him get several more opportunities this year on special teams, and perhaps even on offense as well.

Mentioning Delahoussaye reminds me to share with you this message he sent out to Tiger Fans via Twitter yesterday:  “I want to thank you so very much for all the thoughts and prayers, it truly means so much to me and my family. I am back in Louisiana and have very minor injuries and will recover back to 100% in a very short amount of time. The main thing I want everyone to focus on is sending many prayers to Mike and Sam’s families. They need prayers now more than ever. They were amazing friends and I will miss them dearly. God Bless.” 

With 38 days remaining until LSU’s season opener vs Wisconsin at Lambeau Field on September 3rd, let’s continue our countdown by looking at an impressive number, LSU's 38 first-round NFL draft picks.  Starting with Steve Van Buren as the No. 5 pick of the 1944 draft to 70 years later with Odell Beckham, Jr. being selected No. 12 overall in 2014, the Tigers have had at least two first-round selections each decade for eight consecutive decades. Many younger Tiger fans may take for granted LSU's recent NFL draft success and think that's been the norm for the program, but the numbers by decade show that through 1999, the most first-round picks in a decade was the 90s when the Tigers produced five. LSU squashed that number in the 2000s with nine first-rounders and almost matched the 90s total of five when they had four first-round picks in the 2007 NFL draft. In fact, JaMarcus Russell was selected No. 1 in that draft, joining Billy Cannon (No. 1 in 1960) as the only two Tigers to be selected No. 1 overall. With six first-round picks so far this decade and three more drafts to go (2017-2019), LSU has a good chance to eclipse its record of nine. The Tigers have failed to have a first-rounder the past two NFL drafts, but I attribute that to the fact that La'el Collins was unjustly linked to a double homicide just weeks before the 2015 draft and LSU did not have many departures this previous draft, evidenced by 18 returning starters for this year's team. Get this: In Miles' 11 seasons as head coach, LSU has had 13 first-round picks, which is over a third of LSU's overall total of 38. For 2017, the Tigers could obliterate the 2007 record of four first-round picks with Leonard Fournette, Tre'Davious White, Jamal Adams, Ethan Pocic, Malachi Dupre, Travin Dural, Kendell Beckwith, Lewis Neal, Christian LaCouture and Davon Godchaux all having potential to be first-rounders. This is just further proof that it’s a great time to be a Tiger!

In other football news, Athlon Sports released its Top 10 SEC Heisman Candidates for 2016 and you might be surprised at who made their cut. Of course, running back Leonard Fournette is at the top of their list, as he should be. What took me back a bit was seeing who they have at No. 8 – quarterback Brandon Harris. Here’s what they had to say about the junior returning starter: “It may come as a surprise to those who always say ‘LSU could be really good if it had a quarterback.’ But the Tigers’ quarterback actually finished in the top five in the SEC last year in yards per attempt. Harris was mostly efficient, throwing 13 touchdowns to only six interceptions, and also has shown an ability to scramble. Obviously, he will need better numbers than he had last year to win the Heisman, and Les Miles loves to run the ball, but don’t rule Harris out if LSU has a stellar season.” 

Reader Comments: Scott, my son in law has rented a couple of busses to take Tigers from Milwaukee to Green Bay. Please post this to help some traveling Tigers: We have two charter buses to the Frozen Tundra from Milwaukee full of Tiger fans. The first bus is full and the second bus is filling-up quick. The buses will depart from Milwaukee at 7a.m. on Game Day. The pick-up and drop-off is located at the Hilton Double Tree which is at 611 W. Wisconsin Ave. The cost is $100.00 per person. As for the bus, it is a 56 passenger Charter that has a bathroom, wi-fi and electrical outlets. In addition, we will be providing some beer. The duration of the trip is typically about a two and a half hour drive to Green Bay. However, considering the amount of people expected to travel that day, it is more likely to be three hours. For the return trip, the bus will pick us up at a location TBD approximately 2 hours after the end of the game. This will allow the traffic to die down and let us take in some more Green Bay atmosphere. Please send me an email if you are interested at LSUbustogreenbay@gmail.com. It will be first come first serve. Once I receive your email, I will reply with payment instructions.
