In the current edition of Sports Illustrated, there is an opinion piece authored by one Dick Friedman, who expounds about his devotion to LSU, his favorite college football team. He has been cheering for the Tigers since wondrous halfback Billy Cannon led the 1958 squad to an undefeated season and the first of the school's three national championships, the last two of which have been won since 2003. Nothing unusual about Friedman's level of devotion, except that this is a guy who lives in New Jersey, and always has. He never attended LSU, saw an LSU game in person or even set foot in Baton Rouge.

Coach Dick MacPherson liked what he saw of his Syracuse team. So did LSU coach Mike Archer. "The people in the South saw a team from the North come down and play like a team from the South," MacPherson said after Syracuse dominated LSU, the Southeastern Conference co-champion, 23-10, in yesterday's Hall of Fame Bowl at Tampa Stadium. Archer was not in a position to argue. "Syracuse proved they are an outstanding team," Archer said. "We couldn't do anything right. We couldn't kick the ball, snap it, catch it, tackle or block it. "They did nothing we didn't practice last month.

VIRGINIA COACH Tony Bennett was no stranger to LSU coach Trent Johnson. The two had faced each other in the Pac-10 and also twice since Johnson took over the Tigers. Bennett wasn't surprised that his 21st-ranked Cavaliers had to scrape out a 57-52 victory over LSU last night in Baton Rouge. "I knew it was going to be a hard-fought game," Bennett said. "You have to play on both ends of the floor against a Trent Johnson team. You have to break them down. It was a typical physical game.

Louisiana State postponed its football game against Troy after Hurricane Gustav damaged Tiger Stadium and battered Baton Rouge far worse than anticipated. The university made the decision yesterday after having a full day to get a handle on damage to the stadium and the community, much of which is expected to be without power into next week. "We would have loved to play the game, but it's not possible and the city of Baton Rouge is in too bad shape to take resources away to play a football game," LSU athletic director Joe Alleva said.

A month ago, North Carolina wasn't sure freshman Ed Cota was ready to play point guard. Now, the 12th-ranked Tar Heels aren't sure they can do without him. Antawn Jamison had 26 points and 15 rebounds in a 67-48 win over Louisiana State last night in Greensboro, N.C., but North Carolina struggled offensively without the injured Cota running the team. The Tar Heels missed 15 of 16 shots from three-point range, and shot 29 percent in the second half. "When you lose a player in your rotation, it changes things drastically," said Shammond Williams, who switched from his shooting-guard position and played 37 minutes in Cota's place.

It took big games by April Brown and Marie Ferdinand to give No. 23 Louisiana State its biggest road victory ever. Brown scored 25 points and Ferdinand had 21, both career highs, as the Tigers defeated No. 2 Georgia, 80-74, last night in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams. Georgia (7-1) was the highest-ranked team LSU (5-1) has ever beaten on the road. "This is a big win," said Ferdinand, a 5-9 junior guard. "A lot of people didn't give us any hope of coming into Georgia and winning.

When Louisiana State hired Nick Saban away from Michigan State after the 1999 season, with a five-year contract averaging $1.2 million annually, it wasn't just because the Southeastern Conference school liked the way he charted X's and O's. In Saban, the Tigers knew they were getting a premier recruiter. Saban provided an instant return on LSU's substantial investment last season as the Tigers, 3-8 in 1999, their final season under Gerry DiNardo, went 8-4, including an impressive 28-14 Peach Bowl victory over favored Georgia Tech.

Tim Clark singled to spark a three-run fifth inning and added a homer last night as Louisiana State eliminated The Citadel from the College World Series with a 6-1 victory over the Bulldogs. The win gave the second-seeded Tigers (54-18) a rematch against Oklahoma State tomorrow night. LSU - which lost to the Cowboys, 7-1, on Monday - must beat Oklahoma State (55-16) twice to advance to Saturday's national title game. The Citadel, participating in the College World Series for the first time, finished its season 46-14.

Rick Clausen and Tennessee refused to be part of LSU's feel-good story. Gerald Riggs Jr. pushed into the end zone from a yard out in overtime to give the 10th-ranked Volunteers a 30-27 comeback win last night in the Tigers' long-awaited, hurricane-delayed home opener in Baton Rouge, La. Clausen, an LSU transfer, led the Volunteers (2-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) back from a 21-point deficit in the second half to send the game to OT at 24-all. Clausen came off the bench when starter Erik Ainge was injured midway through the second quarter with the Vols behind by three touchdowns.

Ralston Turner's clutch long-range shooting and LSU's hustling defense put an end to No. 10 Marquette's unbeaten run. Turner scored 22 points and LSU extended its winning streak to five games while handing visiting Marquette its first loss of the season, 67-59, last night. Turner hit two clutch three-pointers in the final 4 minutes to give the Tigers the lead and added two free throws to make it 60-54 with 1:19 to go. Justin Hamilton then closed out a 13-point performance by making seven free throws in the last 53 seconds to ensure the Tigers (8-3)

Looking to restock a system weak in starting pitching on all levels, the Phillies selected Louisiana State righthander Aaron Nola with their first-round pick, seventh overall, in Major League Baseball's first-year player draft Thursday With their second-round pick, the Phillies selected 6-foot-5 lefthander Matt Imhof from Cal Poly. He was the 47th overall selection. The Nola pick was not a surprise, as he had been linked to the Phillies in several mock drafts. "He was the top college pitcher for us," Marti Wolever, the Phillies' assistant general manager for amateur scouting, said at Citizens Bank Park.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Louisiana State's athleticism was too much for St. Joseph's Thursday night in the nightcap of the Old Spice Classic at ESPN's Wide World of Sports. Add that to LSU's red-hot start, and it was all the Hawks could do to keep this one close, falling to the SEC Tigers, 82-65. St. Joe's itself has a reputation as an athletic team, but head coach Phil Martelli disputed that notion. "Because we have a guy that jumps really high, we have a lot of people that think we can match," Martelli said.

AJ McCarron threw three touchdown passes, T.J. Yeldon ran for 133 yards and two scores, and top-ranked Alabama overwhelmed No. 10 Louisiana State, 38-17, in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Saturday night. The Crimson Tide (9-0, 6-0 SEC) turned to power football to take control of a game that was tied early in the third quarter. Yeldon carried 18 times in the second half, 25 overall, after catching the game-winning touchdown pass in last season's meeting with the Tigers (7-3, 3-3). Alabama scored the final 21 points to brush aside LSU. McCarron was a workmanlike 14-of-20 passing for 179 yards, letting Yeldon, Kenyan Drake and their blockers assert control.

Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes, including a 25-yarder to Justin Scott-Wesley with 1 minute, 47 seconds remaining, and No. 9 Georgia rallied to beat No. 6 Louisiana State, 44-41, in a Southeastern Conference thriller in Athens, Ga., on Saturday. Murray was 20 of 34 for the Bulldogs (3-1, 2-0).

TWO YEARS removed from a perfect regular season, it almost seems as if Louisiana State has been reduced to playing the role of Fredo Corleone in its own division. Or maybe Larry from the Three Stooges. For only the third time in a decade the Tigers weren't ranked in the preseason top 10. It hasn't inpeded them before. In 2003, following an 8-5 season, they started at No. 14 but went 13-1 and got Nick Saban his first national title. Also the program's first in 45 years. In 2010 they were 16th, coming off 9-4, and finished 11-2 to end up eighth.

IT'S FINALLY here. Alabama at Texas A&M, the rematch. The defending national champions, who haven't lost a road game since November 2010, going to College Station to take on Johnny Football, the first freshman to win a Heisman Trophy, who basically won it by beating the Crimson Tide, 29-24, last November in Tuscaloosa. About the only thing missing is prime time. This one's at 3:30 p.m. on CBS, which feels like some kind of oversight. The Tide, of course, is trying to win a ring for the fourth time in 5 years, and third straight.

Coach Phil Martelli's squad finished 18-14 last season, ending the year with a loss to St. John's in the first round of the NIT. The Hawks fell in the second round of the Atlantic Ten Conference tournament, losing, 82-79, to Virginia Commonwealth, the tournament's runner-up.

AFTER EAGLES practice sessions this spring, a few players typically stay on the field to work with the JUGS machine, catching footballs. That group always includes veteran wideout Jason Avant and undrafted rookie Russell Shepard. Avant is there because this is how he has forged a solid 7-year career, despite being really slow by NFL standards and not especially big, at 6-foot, 212. Shepard is there because, when he signed with the Eagles out of LSU after a disappointing draft experience, he asked the advice of Eagles director of player programs Harold Carmichael.

If third-round pick Bennie Logan is already overshadowed as a member of the Eagles' 2013 draft class, because quarterback Matt Barkley was drafted one round later, it would not be the first time Logan has been snubbed. Logan grew up in Coushatta, La., one of eight children, and attention is always diverted in a big family. He's the third-youngest and has four brothers and three sisters. At Louisiana State, Logan did not command much attention, either. He was a productive defensive tackle whose spotlight paled compared to defensive ends Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery - and others, too. There were eight LSU defensive players drafted in 2013.
