LSU football, a program steeped in tradition, where the fan really does come from the word “fanatic,” has a rich history, including 11 SEC championships and three national championships, the most recent of which came in 2003 and 2007. Award-winning sportswriter and Baton Rouge television personality Lee Feinswog captures the Louisiana flavor of why they say, “There’s nothing like Saturday night in Tiger Stadium,” with a book filled with stories and anecdotes about football on the Bayou. Feinswog includes tales of legendary coaches Cholly Mac (Charles McClendon), Paul Dietzel, and Nick Saban. Catch up with on-campus mascot Mike the Tiger, a real live Bengal tiger, and relive Gerry DiNardo’s best moments as head coach through these pages.
Tales from the LSU Tigers Sidelines offers a unique look at the game they play in one of the largest on-campus stadiums in the country. From the spiciest tailgating to the loudest fans, LSU football is a culture unto itself, and this book is the perfect addition to any LSU fan’s bookshelf.
