    Students at Louisiana State University have started an online petition urging the establishment to change its "Tigers" mascot, claiming it's the symbol of "white oppression". The petition, which has so far attracted 450 signatures, says the mascot was picked by "powerful white males" in tribute to "a Confederate regiment called Louisiana’s Tigers," who were "known for their propensity for violence on and off the battle field." "Louisiana State University named their mascot the Tigers, and they named it during the height of Jim Crow South. This was a time when black men feared for their lives, and were treated as...

    Bleacher Report ^ | February 12, 2015 | Ray Glier
    LSU played with one hand tied behind its back in 2014, and that one hand happened to belong to its quarterback, which made for some trouble for the Tigers. It was excruciating trouble, actually. The Tigers had the top-rated defense in the SEC and still lost five games. They were 14th out of 14 SEC teams through the air in the regular season, gaining just 1,967 yards with a muted passing game that looked like it belonged in the year 1967. So the familiar refrain around LSU, the two words you hear most often: If only… If only LSU had...

    SEC football is the most entertaining sport in America because of videos like this. Ole Miss, masterfully snatching defeat from the jaws of victory thanks to the disastrous play of quarterback Bo Wallace, has just lost to LSU. The boyfriend/husband, an LSU fan, potentially soon to be broken up with, divorced or murdered in his sleep, exults in the sweet glow of victory. His girlfriend? Well, she hates LSU. With that prelude, enjoy.

    Antarctica, the coldest place on Earth, teems with microscopic life. Tiny organisms dwell on the ice and live inside glaciers, and now, researchers confirm, a rich microbial ecosystem persists underneath the thick ice sheet, where no sunlight has been felt for millions of years. Nearly 4,000 species of microbes inhabit Lake Whillans, which lies beneath 2,625 feet (800 meters) of ice in West Antarctica, researchers report today (Aug. 20) in the journal Nature. These are the first organisms ever retrieved from a subglacial Antarctic lake. "We found not just that things are alive, but that there's an active ecosystem," said...

    Alabama's 2013 recruiting class was wrapped up earlier this month, but for Nick Saban it's never too early to start the process of lining up recruits for Alabama's 2017 class. The Crimson Tide hosted a junior day over the weekend, and one of the players who showed up was Dylan Moses out of Baton Rouge, La. Though Moses is not a junior in high school. He's not even in high school yet, but that didn't stop the eighth-grader from picking up a scholarship offer. [Snip] What makes this all a bit crazier is that Alabama isn't even Dylan's first...
