Coming to a comedy club near you...Van Chancellor

Four of LSU's head coaches visited the area as part of the Tiger Tour 2007. It's a fund-raiser of the Tiger Athletic Foundation and gives fans a chance to mingle with coaches.

Football coach Les Miles, basketball coach John Brady, women's basketball coach Van Chancellor and baseball coach Paul Maineri were all in town. Usually, it's just Miles, but this time it was a rare opportunity for fans.

Chancellor stole the show, at least with us media.

Chancellor played in the Hal Sutton and David Toms charity golf tournament with CBS sportscaster Tim Brando. Chancellor had a memorable afternoon with Brando.

"I've played a lot of golf with a lot of people in my time, but Tim Brando is the greatest legend in his own mind I've ever met," Chancellor joked.
"I can see how he makes his living talking because he never stops."

I was shooting a video for the Times Webs site, but Chancellor might as well have grabbed the mike from my hand and started his own stand-up routine. He had a particular "gripe" with Brando's selective scoring method on the golf course.

"It's amazing that a man that has a high profile job in major league television network can't count. Five is the highest number he knows, and you can quote me on that."
