BATON ROUGE - Scott Woodward made his first appearance as LSU athletics director Tuesday.Woodwards introductory conference came just days after the university announced him as the replacement for former AD Joe Alleva. Woodward formerly worked at LSU in the early 2000s and spent the past four years at Texas A&M.Many talk about being humbled and honored when they take on a new challenge, Woodward said. But for me, here today, humbled and honored are gross understatements.This win bar was made from the goalpost from the 2003 season. GeauxTigers pic.twitter.com/Ha82K9umyZ&mdash LSU Football LSUfootball April 23, 2019The Baton Rouge native was all smiles Tuesday afternoon as he recounted his early years watching sports at the school where he now calls the shots. I grew up a few miles from here, and LSU was a part of my life from my earliest memories. At the age of 10, I was climbing the stairs at Tiger Stadium during football games hocking bags of peanuts, Woodward went on. After graduating from Catholic High, there was never any thought of not going to LSU.The new athletics director also fielded questions, including some about Basketball Coach Will Wade. Woodward said he still needed to be caught up on the situation, but said the once-suspended coach has his full support at this time.Woodwards hiring was announced last week after Alleva stepped down in order to transition to his new role as special assistant to the president of donor relations. Alleva had been AD since 2008, but his relationship with fans had turned sour in recent years between the firing of Les Miles and the temporary suspension of Coach Will Wade.You can watch the full press conference below.Permalink Comments

BATON ROUGE - The 14th ranked LSU Tigers showed the unranked Florida Gators who the King of the South is in college baseball. The Tigers tore up Gators starter Jack Leftwich enroute to an 11-2 win to take a crucial SEC series.&ldquoI told the guys last night that tomorrow is a very pivotal game in our season,&rdquo Mainieri said. &ldquoIf we really want to be a contender for the SEC Championship, we had to win this series.LSU scored nine runs in the first three innings. Gators right-hander Jack Leftwich was tagged for five hits, six runs in just inning of work. Short stop Josh Smith had a monster day at the plate, he was 3-4 with a home run, two doubles and three RBI.Eric Walker gladly took all the run support, he limited Florida to two runs on six hits with five strikeouts over 5.2 innings of work. His only mistake came on a belt-high fastball to Cory Acton which resulted in a two-run bomb over the right field wall.&ldquoI just got back to basics,&rdquo Walker said. &ldquoWhen my stuff has clicked this year, I think I&rsquove been more confident. I just feel more comfortable in myself to let it rip. The stuff was a lot better today and the results just follow.&rdquo Mainieri elected to bring Zack Hess out of the bullpen instead of giving him the weekend off. He struck out three over 2.1 scoreless innings. Hess was scratched from Thursday nights game one start after suffering a groin injury last weekend against Missouri.The Tigers will return to action on Tuesday night against Lamar.

BATON ROUGE &ndash It appears Will Wade won&rsquot be testifying in the federal corruption trial targeting college basketball recruiting.Court reporters in New York posted on social media Friday, a judge there decided Wade and wiretaps that ensnared him in the scandal that led to his brief suspension will not be part of the upcoming trial.Court reporter Pete Brush posted on Twitter that the judge ruled the involvement of coaches was &ldquoirrelevant&rdquo to the bribery charges against consultants Christian Dawkins and Merl Code.The decision involved both Wade and Arizona mens coach Sean Miller, according to Brush&rsquos post.The decision is ironic &ndash two days after LSU removed Joe Alleva as athletic director amid turmoil over Alleva&rsquos decision to suspend Wade when news broke of Wade being heard on wiretaps involving college recruiting.Follow the publisher of this post on Twitter: treyschmaltzPermalink Comments
