Lions, Tigers but no Cajuns in Week Two

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the second in the series previewing the 2018 football season:
After facing the Miami Hurricanes in the season opener, LSU will welcome the neighboring Southeastern University Lions to Tiger Stadium on Sept. 8.
This will be the first football game between LSU and SLU since 1949, a 48-7 victory for the Tigers at home.
It is also a new era of Lion football as Frank Scelfo is in his first season at SLU.
Scelfo takes over a SLU program that has posted four winning campaigns in the past five seasons.

A study of the 2018 football season

The 2018 football season is fast approaching and each summer I try to attack the preview in different ways.
For the next 12 editions I will break down each week of the season for both LSU and Louisiana Lafayette and include other state schools’ best match-ups to watch.
But first, let’s step back and reflect on the 2017 season for the Tigers and Cajuns.
LSU was led by first-year head coach Ed Orgeron after he led the Tigers as interim head coach for the final eight games of 2016.
The Tigers finished 9-4 overall, 6-2 in the SEC and was 16th in the final AP poll.

BSEE proposes revisions to Well Control Rule

Some recent editorials and news stories have falsely characterized regulatory review efforts currently underway at the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, apparently without having actually read the proposed revisions. One editorial in the Houston Chronicle expressed worries that many, including the U.S. Government and our agency, commonly referred to as BSEE, might have forgotten the lessons of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon tragedy and other offshore incidents. For the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement nothing could be further from the truth.

From high school to the Super Bowl

Even though the Saints didn’t make it to the Super Bowl, at least a coach with Louisiana ties won it all.
After the Philadelphia Eagles stunned the football world by beating the reigning champs New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl 52, the announcer pointed out the fact that nine years ago head coach Doug Pederson was a high school coach.
In fact, he was the head football coach of the Calvary Baptist Academy Cavaliers in Shreveport.
He was hired there in 2005 after spending 10 years in the NFL and three season in the World League of American Football.

Sports and community build unity

There are two men that I will always remember for how much they loved their community and wanted to see the best in people – Tony Fuselier and Tim Fontenot.
Thursday night at the Joe Nagata Memorial Jamboree the football fans there honored the memory of founding chairman Tony Fuselier.
Tony was the man behind the idea of Eunice High and St. Edmund joining together for a jamboree to show respect for coach Nagata.
This year is the fifth annual Nagata jamboree and the stadium had Blue Jays and Bobcats roaming the sidelines.
