It’s Pro Day at LSU, a chance for NFL teams to watch former Tigers run the 40-yard dash and participate in other skill and strength events.  Because of Covid, there was no draft combine this year, draft analyst Mike Detillier says it’s a big day for linebacker Jabril Cox.  He says many NFL teams are intrigued by his skillset.

Cut 18 (17) “very well”

The NFL has announced that a 17th regular-season game has been added to each team’s schedule.  For the Saints, they will be on the road to take on the Tennessee Titans for the 2021 regular-season finale.

The LSU baseball team bounced back from being swept by Tennessee over the weekend with an 11-1 victory over South Alabama last night.  Freshman Will Hellmers was credited with the win, improving his record to 5-1.

Now that the season is over, Louisiana Tech men’s basketball coach Eric Konkol has a chance to reflect on the recently completed season that ended on Sunday with a third-place finish in the N.I.T. The Bulldogs finished with a 24-8 record and Konkol is amazed they played 32 games and he’s impressed with his player’s resolve.

Cut 19 (20) “really remarkable”

LSU men’s basketball’s “big four” will have a choice to make on whether to stay in school or head to the NBA.  Cam Thomas, Trendon Watford, Javonte Smart, and Darius Days will have to make a big decision for their futures.  Though nothing is official, The Advocate says that coach Will Wade believes that all four of his stars will leave.  LSU has already signed a handful of players in the most recent signing class that will arrive on campus in the summer.
