LSU Baseball On Life Support; LSU adds St. Aug OL


Kentucky swept LSU this weekend, putting LSU's post-season hopes on life support.  LSU has now lost 11 of their last 12 SEC games, with the only win coming in extra innings.  The wheels have totally come off this season, and it doesn't look like the Tigers are going to rebound.  It's impossible to explain what happened to this team.  It's easy to see that some injuries have affected them, but the team's mental focus and toughness is gone.  Completely gone.  When the team gets a lead, the mindset is one of trying to hold on and survive rather than to go for the kill. 

LSU's SEC record is now 12-15, and the Tigers are in serious trouble of not even making the SEC Tournament.  Luckily for the Tigers, they play cellar dweller Mississippi State next weekend who is currently in last place in the SEC West.  The Tigers will need to win two of three in order to have a chance at making it to Hoover. 


In case you missed the Twitter update on Friday, St. Augustine offensive lineman Trai Turner committed to LSU.  Turner is a big-time prospect who plays tackle for St. Aug but will likely play guard in college.   Turner is 6'5" 340 pounds and moves extremely well.  He also plays defensive tackle for St. Aug and looks like a legitimate prospect on that side of the ball. 

Turner chose LSU over offers from Nebraska, Florida State, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Stanford, Tennessee, and others.
