LSU fans will be embarrassed over what Tennessee WR said after Vols’ win

Brian Kelly holds up his fingers

LSU fans will be embarrassed after hearing what one Tennessee player said after Saturday’s game.

The Vols dismantled the Tigers 40-13 at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge. The attendance was said to be over 102,000, many of whom were cheering for the road team.

Yes, Vols fans showed up to Baton Rouge in a big way.

Tennessee got out to a 20-0 lead and led 37-7 in the fourth quarter. By the time the game ended, many disappointed LSU fans had filed out, while only Tennessee fans remained to enjoy the big win.

Tennessee junior receiver Jalin Hyatt caught 4 passes for 63 yards and 2 touchdowns in the win. After the game, he praised Vols fans for their amazing effort, which prevented Tennessee from feeling like they were on the road.

“To be honest, it didn’t even feel like we were on the road,” Hyatt said after the game, via Rocky Top Insider’s Ryan Schumpert.

From the years of Bob Neyland to Johnny Majors and Phil Fulmer, Tennessee has a big football tradition. Their fans have been dying for a winner since Fulmer was pushed out around 15 years ago. They finally seem to have struck gold with Josh Heupel, and their fans are absolutely loving it.

Video: Wasted LSU fan walks onto field midgame

An LSU fan on the field

An oblivious fan wandered onto the field during LSU’s big win over Southern on Saturday, producing an odd event at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.

Southern had a 3rd-down play in their territory against the Tigers. Just as the Jaguars were getting their play set, the fan slowly strolled through the end zone. The fan made it to the 5-yard line by the time the ball was snapped. He stopped around the 10-yard line, put his hands on his waist, and admired the view in front of him.

The fan, who was wearing an LSU T-shirt, did not flinch when security approached him. But he resisted the officers at first. He had to be taken to the ground after initially fighting with the officers.

Here is video of the entire affair:

Yep, the kid remained on the field for the entire play. How is that possible?

The best part was the way he put his hands on his waist and looked out. It was like he was on his front porch admiring the neighborhood before going out to get the morning paper.

What a nut.

Video: LSU band plays ‘Neck’ on Bourbon Street and fans loved it

LSU Tigers

LSU has an incredible and passionate fan base, and that was on display in New Orleans ahead of the National Championship Game between them and Clemson.

On Sunday, a call reportedly went out on Facebook for former members of the Tigers marching band and dance team to join up on Bourbon Street and play “Neck.” They did so. The song is actually Cameo’s “Talkin’ Out The Side Of Your Neck” from 1984 and Dem Franchize Boyz’ rendition as well. LSU fans replace a phrase in the song to say “suck that Tiger d—.”

You can hear it below — some find it inappropriate, offensive and disrespectful — but many LSU fans love it.

LSU’s band stopped playing the song after the fans used the sexual chant in 2010.

Some fans still said it at the Superdome before Monday night’s game.

LSU fans drink Atlanta hotel out of bottled beer

LSU fans roll hard and are stoked about the Tigers playing in the College Football Playoff. Not only are the fans hardcore, but they also like to have a good time. The Atlanta Marriott Marquis learned that lesson this week.

SI’s Ross Dellenger reported on Friday that the lobby restaurant of LSU’s designated team hotel, the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, ran out of bottled beer by 5 pm that day.

You think LSU fans were going to Atlanta for the big game against Oklahoma without the intent of having a good time? Think again.

The good news is the hotel salvaged the situation with another shipment of beer.

That’s much better. Never doubt the LSU fanbase. We actually saw something similar a year ago, but it was for an entire city, not just a hotel.

LSU stadium sod giveaway turns chaotic, runs out in minutes

LSU Tigers

2019 marks the most memorable and successful football season LSU has had in at least eight years, and it’s fair to say fans are desperate for a piece of the action.

If you need proof of that, you need only see what happened in Baton Rouge on Monday when the university gave away pieces of sod from the Tiger Stadium field for free.

According to WBRZ, the school announced that the field would be torn up for stadium improvements, and they had elected to give away more than 3,300 pieces of the sod for free for fans seeking a memento. A two-hour first-come first-serve giveaway was scheduled for 4 p.m., but as WBRZ’s Trey Couvillion chronicled, things went off the rails between fans camping out for their shot and people simply grabbing turf before the giveaway even started.

Basically, the giveaway ended before it was even scheduled to begin, as eager fans grabbed every piece of sod in a matter of minutes.

It’s hard to blame the fans. LSU is 12-0, one game away from the College Football Playoff, and have a season full of memorable moments to look back on. It sounds like things were a bit poorly organized, but that’s hardly the fault of the fans.

LSU Fans, He said it, you wear it! Get your “Roll Tide, what? F–k You!” shirts right here:

LSU fans reportedly bombarding Sam Ehlinger’s phone with calls, text messages

Sam Ehlinger

The LSU Tigers are going to try to make Sam Ehlinger’s life miserable when they face Texas on Saturday. LSU fans are already doing their part to make the Longhorns quarterback feel that way.

During an appearance Friday on “The Paul Finebaum Show,” ESPN college football reporter Maria Taylor said that LSU fans had gotten a hold of Ehlinger’s phone number and were bombarding him with phone calls and text messages.

“Somehow LSU fans have found out Sam (Ehlinger’s phone) number,” Taylor reported. “He’s got like 600 something text messages from LSU fans and is getting calls nonstop.”

Few college athletes in the spotlight to the extent Ehlinger is handle the pressure and fan attacks better. He has shared his strategy for dealing with Twitter trolls, and it is brilliant. The junior quarterback is probably blocking everything out and focusing even harder on the game. The words of LSU linebacker K’Lavon Chaisson will probably only motivate Ehlinger more.

The teams will meet Saturday evening at Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin.

Watch: LSU fans chant in support of suspended Will Wade, call for AD’s firing

LSU Tigers

LSU fans are showing where they stand amid the scandal the school is facing.

LSU announced on Friday that basketball coach Will Wade would be suspended indefinitely after he was caught on a wiretap discussing an “offer” made to a recruit. The recruit is freshman Javonte Smart, who is being held out as a precautionary move.

These measures of discipline are coming at a terrible time for LSU, which is 25-5 on the season and a potential Final Four team. The fans don’t like seeing the suspensions get in the way of the season and let their feelings known on Saturday for the team’s game against Vanderbilt.

Fans chanted “Free Will Wade” and held up signs supporting Wade and against athletic director Joe Alleva.

The fans may not like the discipline, but Alleva is making the right move by holding Wade and Smart out.

LSU fans raise money to fly planes with pro-Devin White banner

Devin White targeting

LSU fans are ready to put their money where their mouths are in support of Devin White.

Fans are protesting the LSU linebacker’s suspension over a controversial targeting call against Mississippi State. That suspension will force him to miss the first half of the Tigers’ Nov. 3 game against Alabama, and has not sat well with LSU fans, who raised money to display #FreeDevinWhite billboards during the week.

This week, LSU fans are upping the ante by setting up a GoFundMe to raise money to fly a plane over Jacksonville, Florida, where ESPN’s College GameDay will be broadcasting ahead of Florida-Georgia on Saturday, carrying a #FreeDevinWhite banner. A second flight will take place in Baton Rouge during the LSU-Alabama game a week later.

As of Friday evening, the GoFundMe had raised over $4,000, surpassing the required amount to pay for both flights. The excess funds will be donated to charity.

These efforts won’t do anything to get White’s suspension overturned, as it’s already been made clear that it’s not happening. It’s not bad as far as publicity stunts go, though.

LSU fined $100K for fans storming field after win over Georgia

LSU Field logo

LSU had its biggest win of the year on Saturday with a dominating performance against No. 2 Georgia, and fans were understandably thrilled with the 36-16 victory. The way they chose to celebrate, however, is costing the school a hefty sum of cash.

According to Brooks Kubena of The Advocate, LSU was fined $100,000 by the Southeastern Conference after fans stormed the field following Saturday’s win at Tiger Stadium. The violation was LSU’s second since a policy was put in place by the SEC banning fans from entering the area of competition. LSU was previously fined $5,000 after fans stormed the field to celebrate a 10-7 win over Ole Miss in 2014.

“While Saturday’s win was a moment for the LSU family to remember, on-field celebrations can be unsafe,” LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva said in a statement. “We share the conference’s concerns for the safety of fans and the security of players and staff.”

If fans storm the field again, LSU will be fined $250,000.

We’ve seen some serious issues arise in the past when fans storm the field, but trying to contain thousands of people who have a common goal is mind is easier said than done. At the end of the day, LSU probably doesn’t mind paying the $100,000 given what it represents.

Lane Kiffin does his best to rile up LSU fans

Lane Kiffin

Lane Kiffin is probably a bigger troll than any head coach in college football, and LSU fans are his latest target.

In an appearance on “Off the Bench” on 104.5 ESPN Baton Rouge this week, Kiffin was asked about a 2014 game when Alabama pulled off an overtime win against LSU at Tiger Stadium. Kiffin, who was an offensive assistant with the Crimson Tide at the time, said a lack of crowd noise made the victory possible.

“It’s because Tiger Stadium wasn’t loud enough,” he said, as transcribed by Matt Moscona of Gridiron Now. “We were able to whistle from the sidelines and audible to the pick play — I mean rub play, not pick play — to score down there in the end zone.”

Alabama tied the game at 13-13 with a field goal at the end of OT and went on to win on a six-yard touchdown pass from Blake Sims to DeAndrew White. As Kiffin remembers it, Alabama was able to change the play because crowd noise wasn’t a factor.

“C’mon Tiger fans. You gotta be a little louder,” he added. “I thought it was supposed to be loud there at night. Night games in Baton Rouge are supposed to be tough or something.”

Kiffin, of course, is now coaching at Florida Atlantic, so he won’t have to worry about interacting with LSU fans in the near future. As Nick Saban could tell you, Kiffin never passes up an opportunity to take a swipe at someone.
