*Deep exhale* Ladies, I have mixed emotions about the past 3-4 weeks. There are so many things going on in the world of football and in my life that have my brain just 50 shades of rattled up. HOWEVER I do want to apologize for taking such a huge break from posting when you needed me most. Ok… maybe I need ya’ll more than you need me but still the point is I’m sorry I left you on the back burner for so long.
Before I get into the hundred and one things I need to catch you up on, I want to say happy holidays and I hope this year coming to an end brings you a new year filled with bigger and better things. Remember the world is a mirror, you get out of it what you put in so don’t forget to put in as much good as you can if you’re expecting good back out.
Ok, now onto the good stuf. . .football! There are so many things happening in the world of LSU football, there’s just a giant cluster of news. So instead of giving you my usual detailed scoop, I’m going to try and give you just a brief review and a few links you can follow for more information if that tickles your fancy.
First, the bad news because that will make the good news sweeter (or at least I hope so anyways). As many of you might know by now, LSU’s starting QB, Zach Mettenberger, tore his ACL in the win against Arkansas and is not expected to participate in their upcoming bowl appearance against Iowa. I am heartbroken because, despite his rocky start, Zach has stepped up and done some great things with the LSU offense and I was looking forward to his senior year ending with a bang- just not that bang.
Now for the good news. This season, LSU earned itself a spot in the 2014 Outback Bowl against the Iowa Hawkeyes on Jan. 1 2014. This is great news because despite my vlog predicting the Cotton Bowl, LSU still snagged an appearance in a highly coveted bowl game and they have a chance to play a strong offensive team.
After the31-27 win against Arkansas, LSU completed their 15th undefeated season in Tiger Stadium. This means that even with losses away from home, LSU did not lose at home in 15 seasons. Geaux tigers!!
LSU also had 2 receivers complete the SEC 1000+ yard record this year. Those two boys, two of my favorite names on the roster, are Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. Those boys have definitely earned that title with quite a few long runs this season, helping LSU go 9-3 overall regular season.
There is more to cover. There always is. But for now, I want to get you caught up to speed as best as I can, so you can prepare yourself for the upcoming bowl game appearance and feel more on track for post season fun.
As always, geaux tigahs! I will post a new vlog soon on my youtube so feel free to check that out, lots of good news to be had there. Youtube.com/user/kymster15 or find me on twitter @KymbryeAnn.
