This was the opening weekend of college football and Louisiana State University opened their season with just what the fans were looking forward to.

This was the start of a new season in all sorts:  A new color combination of Oregon’s team, which however didn’t prove as lucky as well as gossip of tensions triggering between the enmity of Oregon quarterback Darren Thomas and LSU coach Les Miles. A perfect weekend opener!

Earlier, several LSU players had been dismissed after a fight broke out in a local bar in Louisiana involving them against a few others in the bar. Having violated the NCAA rules, LSU quarterback Jorden Jefferson and receiver Russel Shephard had both been suspended with immediate effect along with charges filed against them for second degree battery stemming. When the police raided Jefferson’s apartment, they found 49 pairs of shoes which the NCAA used in aid with the footprints they found in the incident.

However this was not restricted just to LSU. Oregon’s Cliff Harris was also suspended from their side in another issue. While those players got themselves into trouble, their teams were out playing the sport that their fans would kill for.

After the game however, all the scandal was put away for a bit and LSU, their coach and the fans left the stadium satisfied with their win. Les Miles said that it was going to be a great season and a great year for Jarrett Lee, who had filled in for the quarterback position in the team. Lee showed a commendable performance in the game and that surely helped in taking off the image of him as a novice. His freshman year was not the best in the LSU team however his senior year is expected to be a turnover and him to show a great improvement in his performance.

The stadium was colored in purple and gold, the mascot colors, and 50,000 tickets were sold. The tigers, however, took home the victory as the ducks still now will have to work on their game. Oregon’s last game was in the finals of the Championship game with Auburn taking away the title then.

The football season surely started with a bang and LSU is going to work in grabbing more wins even before the victory sounds fades away.
