Crazy days at LSU again

Back in the 1980s, Sports Illustrated had former LSU basketball coach Dale Brown on the cover with the headline "Crazy days at LSU.''

The crazy days are back - but in a good kind of way. LSU has both of its basketball programs in the Sweet 16. Duke, Boston College and Connecticut are the only other schools that can make the same claim. Those three schools don't have a top-10 football program going through spring practice right now.

About the only thing crazy right now is what used to be the only thing stable on the LSU campus - the baseball team. The Tigers are nationally ranked, but they really don't know what they have after playing a less-than-challenging schedule. They'll find out this weekend against No. 1 Mississippi State.

Still, for as much griping and complaining as LSU fans do about John Brady, Les Miles and Skip Bertman, it's hard to imagine things being much better for Tiger fans.
