  With less than a week until LSU players can return to campus for summer workouts, head coach Ed Orgeron spoke to 104.5 ESPN's Off the Bench Tuesday morning to discuss position battles between his players. Orgeron also offered insight on his talented secondary and defensive line group, and how safety JaCoby Stevens is his "strongest player." There's so many things that we can do with him. I'm so happy he's back. I think pound-for-pound, JaCoby Stevens is our strongest player. He's a great rusher, he's strong in the weight room - can do a lot of things... We've been looking for a big safety and JaCoby is 6-1, 230. You know, [Bo Pelini] talked to me. We looked at the safety board and he said 'get me a LaRon Landry,' and I said 'I'm looking for him, I promise you.' No question. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU finalized plans to play Southern and Grambling in football for the first time in LSU history, school officials announced Monday. LSU and Southern will meet Sept. 10, 2022, in Tiger Stadium. LSU and Grambling will play Sept. 9, 2023, in Tiger Stadium. "This is an incredible opportunity to join our fan bases of these historic Louisiana institutions and championship programs," LSU athletic director Scott Woodward said in a statement. "These dates will be days to celebrate not only football, but the state of Louisiana and all of our people. It's time and we are all proud to be a part of it." LSU has played nearly every in-state team in the past 10 years: Tulane (2009), UL (2009), McNeese State (2010), UL-Monroe (2014), Louisiana Tech (2018) and Southeastern (2018). Nicholls State is scheduled to play at Tiger Stadium on Oct. 3, 2020. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  Man, the recruiting services were way off on this guy. He was rated a two-star prospect coming out of high school and signed with North Dakota State, where he turned out to be a five-star player and a two-time FCS All-American. He's an explosive defensive playmaker who should be an instant starter - and impact player - for the Tigers. - Gainesville Sun

  Former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow's heartfelt social media post saying the "black community needs our help" after George Floyd's killing is a welcome sight, USA Today's Nancy Armour wrote in a column Saturday. Burrow urged his fans to open their ears and listen to the painful experiences that many black Americans face on a regular basis on Twitter Friday. "They have been unheard for far too long," LSU's former star quarterback wrote. "Open your ears, listen, and speak. This isn't politics. This is human rights." The black community needs our help. They have been unheard for far too long. Open your ears, listen, and speak. This isn't politics. This is human rights. Burrow, Armour writes, is one of several "high-profile, white male athletes finally joining in the fight" against systemic racism. Along with the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, other notable athletes who've spoken out include Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence and the Philadelphia Eagles' Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  LSU's Ed Orgeron has been selected as the Allstate Sugar Bowl's Outstanding Collegiate Coach for the State of Louisiana, announced Friday by the Greater New Orleans Sports Awards Committee. After Orgeron and the Tigers blew out Oklahoma in the College Football Playoff semifinal at the Peach Bowl, they capped their legendary season by running away from Clemson in the CFP National Championship in New Orleans. The victory capped a perfect 15-0 season for the Tigers - the most wins in program history. Orgeron's 2019 team set several other school records, including points in a season (726), points per game (48.4) and yards passing (6,024). Orgeron was recognized as the Eddie Robinson Award winner as the top collegiate coach in the nation. The Tigers became the only unit in SEC history to include a 4,000-yard passer, a 1,000-yard rusher and two 1,000-yard receivers in the same season. Joe Burrow, the SEC's Offensive Player of the Year, broke league records for yards passing and touchdowns en route to the Heisman Trophy and the Manning Award. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  To say that Dan Enos - hired earlier this year to be the UC Bearcats' running backs coach - is well traveled would be an understatement. UC added Enos in March after jobs as an assistant and/or coordinator at University of Miami, Alabama, Michigan, Arkansas, Michigan State, Western Michigan and Southern Illinois, among others, as well as five seasons as Central Michigan's head coach. Former Miami Hurricanes offensive coordinator Dan Enos prior to the season opener. But in 2003, during his only season at North Dakota State, Enos assessed the talent of fellow NDSU assistant Jimmy Burrow's son, Joe - now the rookie quarterback of the Cincinnati Bengals - at age 7 - according to a report from Forum Communications' Jeff Kolpack: While the newly hired Bison coaches in 2003 worked putting together a program, the kid spent hours in the hallway throwing a Nerf football.

Sometimes it would bounce into the only meeting room. At one point, Bison assistant coach Dan Enos watched the kid throw and was immediately impressed. Assistant Pat Perles was guarded on this assessment. "I'm like, 'Really Danny?'" Perles said on Thursday. "The kid is 7 years old and you're telling me he already has a good throwing motion and you can evaluate it at this age? He says, 'Yeah.'" - Cincinnati Enquirer

  What can't LSU defensive back Derek Stingley Jr. do? His father Derek Stingley Sr., an assistant coach at The Dunham School, appeared on WNXX-FM ESPN's "Off the Bench" on Wednesday and provided some insight into how his son is staying busy during the coronavirus downtime. "With (Stingley Jr.) it's all about rest. He has a hard time sleeping at night. So he wasn't getting the proper rest that he needed, in my opinion, during the season," Stingley Sr. said. "He did a little ballet just to try and work on flexibility and just to move different muscles...I won't allow him to be static, to get lazy during times like this." - Baton Rouge Advocate

  05/18/20 - Myles BrennanrJr/2022, LSU, 6-3, 207 (DS#8 QB) + More +

  Regardless of when or how the season starts, though, LSU will feature a new quarterback starting under center after Heisman Trophy-winner Joe Burrow was drafted No. 1 overall to the Cincinnati Bengals. The most likely candidate for the job is rising junior Myles Brennan, whom Linehan said he's come away impressed with during limited meetings before coronavirus concerns cut off any in-person workouts or coaching sessions. Brennan's significant time on the field mopping up the end of LSU's many blowout wins also offers more tape than most new coaches would have to survey the on-field abilities of a backup in line for his first starting opportunity.

"You see he's ready to take the reins....He recognizes what we're doing and he's really a bright kid, picks up stuff right away, the new things," Linehan said of Brennan. "He's got a really good grasp of concepts and I'm really impressed with how he throws it. So I'm excited to see what Myles can do." As Burrow's backup, Brennan saw time in eight of LSU's 15 games in 2019, completing 24 of 40 passes -- mostly to fellow backups -- for 353 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Behind Brennan are a handful of highly touted young arms, including 4-star recruits Peter Parrish and Max Johnson, and 3-star recruit TJ Finley -- all entering their freshman or redshirt freshman seasons. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  05/16/20 - Donte StarksSo/2023, LSU, 6-1, 217 (DS#999 ILB) + More +

  Donte Starks, who was dismissed from LSU's football team earlier this week, posted a message on social media Saturday morning saying he was kicked off the team because of academics, not because of "guns, drugs, etc." Starks had been indefinitely suspended since February after an arrest on counts of illegally possessing a concealed handgun and attempting to run from law enforcement in Marrero. LSU suspended Starks for an unspecified violation of team rules the next day.

In his post on social media, Starks said of his arrest that he "accepted that and moved on." "...mistakes happen, it's life," he wrote. "I got dismissed because of my academics. The schooling part is my weakness, and I'm okay with admitting that." Starks, a former four-star recruit from John Ehret High School, missed preseason camp last summer while he completed a math course to become academically eligible. Starks joined the team before the season-opener. Orgeron said it came "down to the wire." Starks ended up playing in three games last season, mostly on special teams. He did not record a tackle. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  The Southeastern Conference university presidents will vote on an undetermined date whether players will be able to return to campus on either June 1 or June 15, LSU Executive Deputy Athletic Director Verge Ausberry told the Louisiana Economic Recovery Task Force Thursday. Ausberry, who also serves as LSU's Executive Director of External Relations, told the task force that the athletic department is aiming to return its players to campus on June 1, something athletic director Scott Woodward had also said in the department's virtual Coaches Caravan Wednesday night.

"The presidents are going to take a vote in the SEC," Ausberry told the task force, a unit of private sector business leaders who advise lawmakers on the economy's recovery amid the spread of coronavirus. "Do we come back? Do we bring the students back on June 1 or June 15?" Ausberry told the task force the vote would happen on May 22, but, in a phone call later with The Advocate, he clarified he misspoke on the date and said a vote will happen at an undetermined date. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  05/14/20 - *Thaddeus MossrSo/2020, LSU, 6-2, 250 (DS#6 TE) + More +

  LSU had a record-tying 14 players selected in the 2020 NFL draft, but there was at least one notable figure missing from that group. Tight end Thaddeus Moss, the son of Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss, was not taken and instead signed with the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent. "Ultimately all I could ask for is the opportunity, but it was definitely a slap in the face," Moss said in a video news conference with reporters Wednesday. "I put a lot of work in, years of football. We (LSU) went undefeated and won a national championship. I played my best ball in our biggest games, so I definitely felt like it was a slap in the face not getting drafted, having kickers and punters and special teams guys get picked over me. I definitely felt some type of way over it. "But it's no difference. I've always had to prove myself my whole life. Having the last name that I've had, I've had to prove everybody else wrong, or prove myself right." In his lone year of action at LSU after transferring from North Carolina State and redshirting in 2018, Moss recorded 47 catches for 570 yards and four touchdowns. He notched nine catches for 135 yards and three touchdowns in the Tigers' two College Football Playoff victories. - The News-Star

  A year ago at this time, LSU quarterback Joe Burrow wasn't listed by Las Vegas oddsmakers as a potential Heisman Trophy candidate. Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson was, along with Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez and Stanford quarterback K.J. Costello. But not the guy who would shatter Heisman Trophy voting records: Burrow. The LSU senior opened the season with a five-touchdown performance against Georgia Southern. And, voila, Vegas caught on. He was immediately listed as a 28:1 pick, still behind Alabama receiver Jerry Jeudy and Patterson. The point is, we don't know who will win the 2020 Heisman Trophy. I hope it is one of the 100 players on today's list. But based on last season, I wouldn't be stunned if it was someone else. According to oddsmakers, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields is the current favorite, followed by Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence and Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler. - News Gazette Tribune

  LSU football fans will get a chance to go behind of the scenes of the Tigers' national championship season and Joe Burrow's Heisman run with the release of a new documentary. The SEC Network will broadcast an hour-long show starting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday called "One for the Ages." It's produced by Jim Jorden Productions, the creative team behind SEC Inside, according to ESPN. The show will immediately be followed by a replay of LSU's win over Clemson in the national championship game. - Baton Rouge Advocate
