Relive LSU’s historic football program with this hardcover book by Scott Rabalais, “LSU by the Numbers.”
From No. 1 to No. 99, with stars like No. 9 Joe Burrow and No. 20 Billy Cannon, hall-of-famers and other greats who wore each number over the years, this book details Tiger gridiron heroes from the early 1900s to LSU’s most recent Heisman winner and champions. This 160-page collector’s book features stories, stats and photos culled from decades of coverage by the award-winning sportswriters and photographers of The Advocate.
The "Morning Advocate" is not the original newspaper founded by the Manships back in the early 1900's. In the mid to late 1900's the sports department was probably the best in the state. Having High School football coverage on Friday nights by using Journalism students from LSU from about 8pm-12midnight, these students would use the the phones taking down stats from the games then type a story up.
Today's Advocate is lucky to have results from the day before's LSU activity. There is not over one or two high school game mentioned in the paper. I hate to pay for my bill each month.
My husband really enjoyed the book
LSU by the Numbers: The Greatest Tigers in History (and Those Who Almost Made It)
This book was a gift for my brother who loves LSU football. He was there selling peanuts the night of Billy Cannon's famous run.
