As mentioned in a previous posting The Andgyr Budgie is branching out and will bring you all some Collage Football from the US of A. This season the Florida Gators will be gracing these pages! Anyway after a good chat with a good friend of mine in New York, a second collage football team will be appearing on The Angry Budgie. So TAB will be adopting the LSU Fighting Tigers, based in Baton Rouge. Should make for some intresting reading as LSU and the Gators are massive rivals. With many people already pinpointing the October 10th game in Baton Rouge vs the Gators being a deciding game of the season!
Playing out of Tiger Stadium, otherwise known as Death (or Deaf) Stadium, LSU play in front of 92,400 fans in the SEC. During a 2007 game versus the Gators the crowd managed an incredible 130 decibels. The stadium has also seen the famous 'Earthquake' game versus Auburn in 1988, when Tommy Hodson threw a complete touchdown pass to win the game. The Louisianne Geological Survey recorded a legitimate earthquake.
Anyway onto LSU, if you have a spare moment take a look at the following video, it has the highlights from the LSU v Gators game from 1997 which hit 130 decibels:
As with the Gators, from the 5th September The Angry Budgie will be covering the following 12 games for LSU:
September 12th, vs Vanderbuilt @ Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge.
September 19th, vs UL-Lafayette @ Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge.
September 26th, vs Mississippi State, Starkvill.
October 3rd, vs Georgia, Athens.
October 10th, vs The Gators @ Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge.
October 24th, vs Auburn @ Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge.
October 31st, vs Tulane @ Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge.
November 7th, vs Alabama, Tuscaloosa.
November 14th, vs Louisianna Tech @ Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge.
November 21st, vs Ole Miss, Oxford.
November 28th, vs Arkansas @ Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge.
In my conversations with my NY friend, it is evident the passion all fans display for their collage teams, and each team has their own distinguishing feature. Be it a song, or mascot or movement, with this in mind im going to work on a post that will try its best to shed some light on all these things, and Collage Football its self.
So there we go everyone, roll on September! GEAUX TIGERS!
