LSU Football unranked in Coaches Poll for first time in 22 years
08/08/2022 1:07pm

The last time the LSU Tiger football team was unranked in the preseason Coaches Poll, an outsider was taking over the team after it had hit rock bottom.Then it was Nick Saban in 2000 taking over for Gerry Dinardo, fast forward 22 years and its Brian Kelly replacing Ed Orgeron and the Tigers have no national expectations for early success.&nbspBack-to-back non-winning seasons will do that for a proud program, but one glance at the USA Today/ AFCA Coaches Poll shows that the Tigers are earing some disrespect for their past two seasons following the 2019 National Championship.Once again Alabama has been picked to be the team to beat in college football after receiving 54 of 66 first-place votes.&nbsp This is the seventh time Alabama has been ranked at the top of the poll in the last 13 years.The defending national champion Georgia Bulldogs are the next highest ranked SEC team checking in at third.As for LSU, the Tigers are receiving votes and would be ranked 30th if the Poll extended that far. Its also safe to say that LSU will finish much higher than some of the teams ranked above them in this preseason poll, as this poll appears to be a ranking of past success and failure as much as it is about this upcoming 2022 Fall football season.RANK&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp TEAM&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp RECORD&nbsp POINTS&nbsp 1ST&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp PREVIOUS&nbsp

BJ Ojulari awarded legendary No. 18 jersey
08/06/2022 11:00pm

Hes what you want when you want someone to represent your program.That was LSU head coach Brian Kelly at SEC Media Days, glowing about Tigers defensive end BJ Ojulari. Seemingly that speech in Atlanta was providence since Ojulari was awarded the legendary 18 jersey on Saturday.BJ Ojulari, a preseason All-America candidate, has represented the LSU football program at a NCAA Leadership Symposium as well as participating in numerous community service events.&ldquoThe No. 18 is the player who brings all those traits of someone who leads in an extraordinary manner,&rdquo Kelly said. &ldquoThe attention to detail, great focus, represents the program in a positive way in the classroom, in the community and on the field.&nbspOjulari, a junior from Marietta, Georgia, joins an elite list of former Tigers who have had the honor of wearing the number. Most recently, linebacker Damone Clark and kicker Avery Atkins wore No. 18 for the Tigers in 2021.Entering his second season as s starter for LSU in 2022, Ojulari has twice earned SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week honors during his career. He&rsquos recorded 71 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss and 11 sacks in his previous two seasons with the Tigers.LSU&rsquos tradition of No. 18 began in 2003 when quarterback Matt Mauck guided the Tigers to their first national championship since 1958. Mauck, now a dentist in Denver, passed his number down to running back Jacob Hester, who went on to lead the Tigers to the 2007 national title.Permalink Comments
