About The Book
Longtime Baton Rouge reporter Lee Feinswog tends to take a different approach to sports.
Such was the case while he was a sportswriter and columnist for The Advocate covering LSU. And it’s readily apparent on his television show Sports Monday, a weekly outing in which Feinswog and his guests sit in La-Z-Boys and take irreverent looks at the local sports scene.
So it’s no surprise that such an attitude prevails in Tales from the LSU Sidelines.
You’ll laugh as you read Tyler Lafauci’s account of the first time he heard trash-talking in Tiger Stadium. You’ll shake your head as former sports information director Herb Vincent tells of going through the hiring and firing of three different LSU football coaches in his 12-year tenure.
You’ll learn more about Mike the Tiger than you ever imagined, feel as if you’re on the field for the greatest defensive stops in Tiger Stadium history, and long for the glory years of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s when you read the insightful interviews with former coaches Paul Dietzel and Charles McClendon.
There are also stories you’ve never heard from former Tigers and coaches. From the lineman who said he nearly clipped on Billy Cannon’s famous punt return to players who found innovative ways to spend time away from the field during the season to life in the old days in the athletic dorm, Broussard Hall. You’ll gain a greater appreciation for the three Tigers in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the LSU standouts in the College Football Hall of Fame.
For the first time, Tales from the LSU Sidelines offers Gerry DiNardo’s personal view of his tenure at LSU, as well as former athletic director Joe Dean’s trials and tribulations in hiring three coaches, including DiNardo and his successor, Nick Saban.
Within these pages, you will read candid quotes, off-the-wall stories and personal interviews that will remind LSU football fans why they are proud to be tigers.
