‘Blast from the Past’ talks LSU baseball and Oregon football with TR Radio
Does Carl Dubois think LSU fans will have a better chance to fill the majority of Cowboys Stadium with purple and gold against Oregon than they did against the home-state Aggies in the Cotton Bowl last year?
By RICHARD FISCHER
Tiger Rag Assistant Editor
Carl Dubois, former associate editor of Tiger Rag Magazine and current sports editor of the News Register in McMinnville, Oregon, joined Jeff Palermo and Ben Love on Tiger Rag Radio Tuesday night.
Tiger Rag’s former lead reporter on LSU baseball gives us his thoughts from afar on the 2011 LSU baseball team as well as how he feels the SEC stacks up compared to other conferences around the country.
In Pac-10 territory, how does the Pacific Northwest feel about the potential for the SEC East to receive three national seeds, and to flip the script, how did the Southeast perceive baseball on the Oregon Trail when the Beavers won consecutive national titles in 2006 and 2007?
Moving on to football, in case anyone’s forgotten, there’s pretty big season-opening game in Jerry World between schools from Dubois’ current and former necks of the woods, and the sports editor previews the contest with Tiger Rag Radio.
LSU has already planned to distribute 37,000 tickets to Tiger fans, and Dubois tells us how many tickets he thinks the Ducks will sell prior to the contest.
After making it to the national championship last season, Dubois tells Tiger Rag Radio how much excitement there is entering another season with lofty expectations and how the cultures of Baton Rouge and Eugene, Oregon are a little bit different when you have a winning football team.
